The Jimquisition: The Past Is Not The Future

They say history repeats itself, but that's not always true. Just because something happened with a videogame console over five years ago, that doesn't mean it'll happen again. The past is not the future, and the present is a very different animal.

This week's Jimquisition examines the argument that has popped up a lot in 3DS arguments -- that it will follow the same pattern as the DS and succeed in spite of a slow start. While that might happen, it's not guaranteed, and acting like it is just makes you look silly.
