    1. Now you know that shtick is getting old.

      Just kidding. Those “other fanbous” have been doing that crap since Sega left the console market. RIP Nintendo can’t wait to play Uncharted on my 3DO

      1. It was also on the market with constant stock refresh for over 100 years. Not only that, but it broke down often, and got replaced easily because of the year 1 price drop.

        Theres a reason why the PS2 sold that well, and its games arent the only reason.

      1. The problem with that logic is that the casual market that ate up the Wii arent eating up the switch. Its a different audience and you can tell by the attach rate. I hope the switch succeeds, and something other than a media console holds the title.
