“Nope, not even remotely close”, thought Nintendo fan Cameron Joger as he watched the Switches reveal during the Nintendo Direct. “I was hoping I got at least one thing right, but nope, entirely inaccurate.”
Like many other Nintendo fans, Joger had made many predictions for the Switch, including the release date, price, and other potential features. However, despite being a fun way to involve yourself with Switch discussion, the soul-crushing feeling of ‘couldn’t-be-further-from-the-truth’ wrong resonates with many Nintendo fans today.
Errors in judgement didn’t stop at just predictions. Many others, who before the Direct wished with childlike enthusiasm for certain features or launch games, had their hopes and dreams utterly shattered upon watching the reveal. Hopefully, Nintendo has taught these ambitious wish-makers a lesson about having high hopes for the future.
Joger, who gleefully watched the Direct only to slowly realize how inaccurate he was, reached for his phone and swiftly deleted all traces of his personal predictions from his Twitter and Facebook in a hasty attempt to save face. Major gaming hubs including IGN, Geek, Gameinformer, and Nintendowire also have coincidentally destroyed all evidence of their predictions while simultaneously firing all of their journalists who got them wrong.
Although starting his Friday morning off eating some scrambled eggs with a side of disappointment, Cameron is nonetheless excited and hopeful for the Switch. He was last seen fist-fighting a dissenting Sony fan.
