With Sony we get variety and unique experiences, it's nearly always that way. And i'm glad they aren't dumping PS3 so suddenly like Nintendo did with the Wii. I see a couple more years with the PS3 at least.


Wii lasted 6 years, and the only reason Nintendo "dumped" it, is because while a good system, basically the best "SD" system produced, they knew they needed to jump into the HD era. If you want to see REAL "Dumping", go back and look at how Sega handled the Saturn.


Nintendo dropped the Wii because the casual fad fell into a slump and the allure of the Kinect took the casuals away. Gimmicks tend to do that. 3-4 years of strong sales with a limited supply then, bam.....the fad wares out once everyone has run the train on it and moved onto the next thing. This is also why MS has to bundle the Kinect. Watch and see what happens if they don't bundle it next gen. The Wii U could've come later, but they decided to beat the other consoles to the punch because third parties were demanding newer hardware and Nintendo was going to give it to them, just on their own terms....underpowered.
