  1. Remember when a certain analyst that shall not be named *CoughMichaelPachterCough* made a prediction that the Switch, then NX, will not sell as well on launch and in it’s entire life because it would struggle competing with PS4 and Xbox One? Good times.

    I do like seeing the Switch doing well even now but Nintendo should not make the mistake Sony is making which is being arrogant and they need to fix both their online service and Joy-con drift.
