Yeah, I have to agree with Phoenix on this one.

You can't just disregard the Wii U because it didn't turn out well. It was meant to compete with the PS4 and XB1. That's a fact.

So u disregard the switch because it's ahead, and put the switch in its own category

Remember what you said and copy and paste it because if ps5 comes out and it do not do as well as ps4 don't make any excuse for switch we know how internet works, when Wii beat ps3 the Sony people on here change the narrative saying well Wii not a real system so its only between ps3 and Xbox

People on here just too sensitive when it comes to playstation

No, the Switch should be considered a new generation. I DO remember what I say and I PRACTICE what I preach. If the PS5 suddenly came out then guess what, just like the Switch, it would be part of the next gen in my eyes. Why, because you can't suddenly discount the PS4.

What you seem to call "sensitivity" is what I call FACT. And yeah, The Wii DID beat the PS3 in sales. And guess what, I was among the people saying that you can't cut the Wii out just because it seemed to corner a market the PS3 and 360 didn't.

So yeah, you go ahead and quote me. Because I'm not like the rest of you here. I don't "change my narrative" to suit some ridiculous fanboy argument. I don't have stock in these companies like the way majority of the people on this site act like they do.
