will Sir. Don Mattrick prediction hold true?

#1 Edited by ghostwarrior786 (5066 posts) -

Sir. Don Mattrick hypothesised back in 2008 that the company to reach 10m sales first ALWAYS wins the 'console war', history has shown this to be true but do you think this great mans theory will hold true this gen? ps4 is around 7m+ and x1 is at around 4.2m, theoretically ps4 could win this gen in the next few months

also, any posts mocking/slandering Sir. Don Mattrick will not be tolerated. he is a great man who almost ran sh1tbox into the ground, he will forever be remembered for the amazing interviews he gave and the love he showed xbox fans. i miss u don

Don Mattick is a cool guy in my book. Why? Because he single-handedly destroyed the Xbone before it even came out. Don is the best Sony fanboy ever and thats a fact

Pretty sure the Genesis was the first to 10 mil in its generation but the SNES ended up beating it.

No it wasn't. The 360 had a year head start and hit 10 mil after it's first full year. The Wii had only been out for one month

Doesn't the NDS/PSP situation also defy that prediction?
Or are handhelds non-applicable?

It was the Wii to reach 10m first though?

Sir Don? You bitches Cray cray.

I actually agree

But winning the current console generation might not actually translate into actual "winning" (see: 3DS and Vita).
