@gcunit Fair enough, you are right, but it seemed like most people have been talking about 2017 vs. 2018. Seems a bit premature to talk about being disappointed in the "second year" if we're talking about the time from March to March, as March 3 is still more than six months off and nobody knows yet what will come out in those early months of 2019.

Remind yourself that overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer.

Comparing it to the Wii U at this point in time of the console's life, it's nowhere near as bad.

I remember getting Mario Kart 8, beating the Grand Prix, and then wondering why I even still had that console.

The Switch has already given me my money's worth and Smash isn't even out yet.

While that is technically true, historically we have had more and bigger releases in the later months than in the first. Those three months are usually the most quiet ones.

Doesn't matter if you think we're talking business, calendar, financial, fiscal, tax, academic, Chinese, or cabbages. Given that a year is 365(.25) days and that Switch came into being as a consumer product on 3rd March 2017, Switch's first year = 3rd March 2017 to 2nd March 2018. Hence the host of articles that were published on the Web on and around 03/03/2018 looking back at Switch's first year.

365.2422 days to be exact.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?
