Nintendos first party line up alone destroys both Microsofts and Sonys offerings combined. You can not compete with IPs like Zelda, Mario, Pikmin, Kirby, Metroid
I'll end up having all 3 of the new consoles as they get released, because I like to PLAY GAMES and not jerk it over what is running the games.
You forgot Pokemon. That's all kids games, sure they don't need to have cutting-edge shaders, cause nobody cares. But AAA hardcore gaming for adults was always pushing the graphic envelope. Half-life, Quake, Doom, Crysis... you name it. I want to feel like I'm right in the game, it's a vital part of the experience, and now games look more stunning than ever, they deliver the ultimate gaming pleasure. I owned a PS1, sure, it was cool, but you won't be satisfied with those graphics forever. There's no argument against someones tastes, it's perfectly fine to play 1989 Gameboy titles now, it's just that Nintendo lives in it's own world since N64, hardly any good major 3rd party games, but the platform lives on their in-house studios and casual gamers. It's a totally different market and business strategy, they don't need to be better than Sony and MS, and they know it.
