I wasn't aware ignorance existed in concentrations that high. I also read your threads, so I wouldn't know the details of what people are posting.

I'd also like to make a note that my questions were legitimate questions, as I haven't seen an estimate below 80mLT myself in some time.

Even with the slaughter that Nintendo is laying down here, I am still somewhat concerned how it’s sales will fair through next year.

I think it can do pretty well next year. Their forecast is something like 20-30 million, they would put it so high if they didn't have a good reason for it.

True, but that’s still a forecast. Nintendo expected Wii U to outsell Wii, So forecast aren’t always going to turn out true. My main reason for being concerned is because I don’t see Metroid 4 or Pokemon launching until 2019, so I can’t really think of what they could put out next year, besides a new Smash Bros/ Smash Bros 4 Deluxe, that’ll help keep the momentum like the games they’ve released this year.

anyone would like to take my ps4 in exchange for a switch?


DialgaMarine (on 17 November 2017)

Why not have both? I own a Pro and a Switch, and the two compliment each other so well. My 1S has been an unplugged dust collector for over a year.

This is one of those comments that doesn't outright troll anyone, but was clearly intended to antagonize. Could have easily said "Is anyone willing to sell or trade for a Switch", but was instead set on rustling jimmies.

And then you turn around and do it again? Dude, that was an opportunity for you to turn around and say "My bad", but instead you decide to troll Sony more openly?

Not that the first post is that bad, but your reply is where it falls apart. Let's not do that.
