Forums - Sales Discussion - Nintendomination at an end?

Look at it this way: Nintendo is only 4-5M behind the combined install base of the PS3 and the 360. That's like what, 3 months of Wii sales? In 6 months, the Wii could potentially eclipse the combined userbase of the HD consoles.

no, nintendomination is not at an end

wii just sold 1.5mil and then 1mil in back to back weeks; woulda been higher if more supply
wii fit has already sold roughly 1 mil in Japan alone
ds sold 2mil in one week

in 2008, wii ltd sales will be greater than 360+ps3 ltd sales...that is, wii will have over 50% market share in the next-gen console market (wii, ps3, 360)...and ds will continue to increase its share in the handheld

wii is only getting started; it is going to surpass ps2 lifetime sales in its first 5 years of existence



Bets:Missed by 420k I bet leo-j vg$500 that wii will sell 31 million by 7/31/08.  Sorry, I don't think he has enough vg$ to make it with all of u that wish you could. Hit, with room to spare I bet kingofwale a 1-week ban that wii Americas ltd sales>360 Americas ltd sales as of the numbers for week ending 7/05/08 (using vgchartz homepage #s)

Predictions:

Wii will sell 18-20mil by 12/31/07  CHECKWii will sell 45mil+ WW by 12/31/08Wii will surpass PS2 sales WW by 11/17/11 (5yr anniversary)Wii Fit will hit 12mil sales in 2009MKWii+SSBB+Wii Fit+SMG > 50 mil sales by 2010 > gta4+mgs+gt5+ff13+haze+lbp

I wasn't aware I was handing out gold medals. When was I anointed with this most heavy of burdens? Was there a committee discussion, or some general election that I missed. Seriously this thread was never a race, and it was never a contest. Perhaps in the minds of fanatics.

Here is the irony of the entire thread all I did was ask a hard question. Did I propose a prediction nope I didn't. Was the question unfair, or something Nintendo could not obtain. You know what at the time of asking I bet a number of posters thought that Nintendo could get right back to that point of utterly destroying the competition in the most humiliating way possible. The irony is that the definition wasn't far fetched considering what Nintendo had done. Only now is it unfair since Nintendo didn't or couldn't have done it.

I wonder if anyone grasps that Nintendomination as I defined it was a huge compliment. You guys do realize the term means a insane level of ass kicking?
So what if Nintendo couldn't continue to do what it was doing. Through the end of the year. Do I understand that none of you think Nintendo can ever do that again, and why do you think that now. Have a little faith.

My comments about your holiday presents are simple enough to understand. Don't you think its a little off that your spending so much time on these forums in what is a dead week year after year. We never get gaming news through the last week of the year, and it should probably be rather boring until at the very least February. You shouldn't be spending this much time on the forums let alone obsessing about a single thread. A thread by the way that is months old, but is on the front page every single time I visit.

 Bahahahaha! Just stop, Dodece. It's already hilarious enough with out you trying to cover yourself. Hah.



The BuShA owns all!

Dodece needs to learn that there are such things as implication and inuendo, and he uses them readily in order fo defiance later.

You can IMPLY something (as you did) without literally saying it.

Your question was a feeble attempt to hide your view that "Nintendomination" (again, lame) was at an end. Just read over your collective previous posts in this thread and try to claim it was not.

You should watch Ferris Bueler's Day Off, you could learn something. Pedalling backwards does not undo the things already done.

 I think you're just about all played out now.

Responding paragraph by paragraph:

Do you really need to be that melodramatic?  Everyone understood that it was just an analogy for the situation.  If you have a valid argument then use it, but this kind of responce is something I thought was beneath you.

The irony of the thread is that you weren't asking a question at all but using a question to make a statement.  Now that this has turned on you, rather than owning up to it you scramble to save face...and the real irony is that its having the exact opposite effect. 

I think most of us understand how much of an "ass-kicking" your definition is, but what you don't seem to realize is that this level of "ass-kicking" has been maintained.  During the holidays a 2:1 ratio is much harder to maintain than the rest of the year, the higher the sales numbers the harder the ratio is to maintain, a very simple concept and one I am sure you understand.  So why then is it so hard to understand that a 1.8:1 ratio during the holidays is as good or better than a 2:1 ratio during the normal part of the year?  

Once again you try to redirect the topic in a thinly veiled attempt to focus attention away from your uncomfortable predicament. The absurdity is of course that you are on these forums doing precisely that which you tell us not to.  But you take it even further with the absurdity of your feigned concern for the amount of time we spend on this forum.  Save us all the trouble of reading yet another attempt to redirect the thread and omit it from your ironically inevitable rebuttal.

 

So now, are you going to ignore Sri Lumpa's points?  

Its plain to see that even the criteria you set forth didn't require "multiples".  But even if it had, as I have already commented, maintaining a ratio of 1.8 during the holidays is easily as impressive, if not more so, than maintaining a 2:1 ratio during the remainder of the year.

The simple fact is that everyone except you sees that the Domination is in full swing.  I don't know why this had to turn bitter for you, or why you insist on being correct but I do hope you will consider the fact that you literally have nobody who shares your view of the situation and take it as a sign that you should stop being so damn stubborn.  Nobody is right all the time and you win more points by owning up to your mistakes than hiding from them. 



To Each Man, Responsibility

i think it's time to let it go... even i myself am getting a little sick of seeing this thread in the "hot topics", let alone dodece.



the Wii is an epidemic.

Nintendomination has ended...Nintendo transcendence has begun, Nintendo has gone beyond the mere concepts of conflict and reached a pinnacle no other gaming companies have ever achieved

 

Nintendo is the gaming industry now

Dodede has already started an alt account and has over 100 posts. He's going into stealth mode to rebuild. He wants to build up trust and respectibility before he starts spinning out whole cloth F.U.D. I often wonder if he gets payed for it or if he is in some kind of training program.
