[CVG] Launching first is PS4's 'best chance at changing momentum' - Page 4

post #31 of 49
Nintendo has always been better at making games than consoles... I really hope the Wii U is their last system, it would benefit nearly everybody.


As for PS4 vs Xbox... I have to agree with the article that Sony made the right move starting first. I really have a hard time thinking of anyway they can 1UP this event.

Did everyone suddenly forget that Nintendo had the most popular console last generation? They didn't just do well, they did so well that the competition was forced to acknowledge that there was something missing from their own platforms. The Wii was so dominant that (for better or for worse) Microsoft is now fully committed to the same strategy. It's Kinect or bust.
Also notice how Sony made sure to include, exhaustively it seems, every feature that can be found on the Wii U.

The good thing here is that Nintendo didn't just do well last round, everyone did well. The console market is now big enough to support three main players. So the question going forward isn't who will win and who will fail, we know that they're all going to win. The question is who will do the best job of capturing people's attention.

Sony has the most down to earth console, they are the hardcore vote.
Nintendo has the middle ground, more of what we're used to, but with a twist.
Microsoft, in my opinion, is the wildcard this time around, depending on how deep down the Kinect rabbit hole they decide to go.

You do know that Nintendo has expressed many times that if they ever stop making consoles they would leave the video games business right?, so no .... that would not benefit anyone at all.

Oi, all of you, shut up, alright? It's too early to tell ANYTHING at this point.

For starters, Nintendo came out with their console first and I imagine they have some stuff planned for the end of the year (Nintendo isn't dumb, they've been in this console business longer then Sony and Microsoft, it wasn't an accident the Wii did so well). Like the 360 last gen, the Wii U looks like it will get about a years head start. And I can tell you right now it will be the cheapest. Saying the hardware is worse then the current gen stuff is just stupid and ignorant and just repeating lazy developer talk. I highly recommend you get your hands on a demo unit or a friends and play a fricken game on it before judging.

Second, the info Sony is giving out is way to fricken vague. I certainly hope it's as good as they claim, but if the price is too high (and looking at what specs I can find, that's my biggest worry, another $500-700 console), Sony will likely shoot them selves in the foot. And you know what? I'm 100% sure that's WHY they're being vague. They know it's too expensive, but if it's as expensive or less so then the next xbox... And that's what they're waiting for.

Third, Microsoft is bound to shoot them selves in the foot if there is still an xbox live subscription. It's not so much to do with the price it self, but the simple fact that it's there to begin with. If Sony's claims are correct, AND they don't charge for their service, then Microsoft has no excuse other then pure greed to have a subscription. They've already littered the 360's GUI with ads even if you do subscribe, I imagine the next Xbox will be more of the same.

Fourth, there is room for everyone in this industry. Many of us will buy two or all three major consoles including my self. It's stupid to be a fanboy, it just pisses everyone off.

well, a machete is a machete lol. And honestly, a machete is closer to a short sword.

In the end, the Wii U is fun to play with family and relatives. I'm a teenager. Would I play on this console with friends? No, it's boring in that aspect. But I would easily play a 360/ps3 with friends. But not with family.
Tl;dr : Wii U is a family console and the other two I mentioned are for friends gaming together, for the most part.

First to the game... just like when they launched the PS3? Look where they're at now.
They better deliver something amazing.

The thing is, this didn't really effect ps3/xbox 360 sales in any way. They were selling tons of consoles to people who wouldn't play the kind of games you find on the x360 or ps3. I worked at the public library when the Wii came out, and who do you think was interested in it? Not the young IT guys that the x360/PS3 were aimed at... it was the older librarian ladies. These were people that normally would never have bought a gaming console. It was an incredibly smart move on Nintendos part, but in the end it doesn't really effect the Xbox vs PS3 fight.

Due to it being for a different market, it doesn't matter when Nintendos product comes out.
