The doom and gloom seems to be focused squarely on Wii U. Not even Nintendo as a whole since they have been selling the most console with the 3ds and sales of their software has also been fantastic, through again the 3ds. What I'm wondering is how will the Xbox one and ps4 do after the initial release sometime this holiday season?
I'll be first to say it, the PS4 and XBox one are magnificent devices, powerful, beautiful and even a little bit intimidating. Great stuff, but who is going to buy it. I'm not. I want to, don't get me wrong. I have the xbox 360 and ps3 to tide me over, plus i'm never impressed by any launch game so I'll be trying to catch both about a year and a half later. If I had the money, I would scoop both up day 1, but I don't, so sad for me.
My question is, are the xbox one and PS4 going to suffer the same thing Wii U is going through now? There are many factors that may just have it play that way. For one, the two systems are very identical. It's another red ocean for both consoles. Fans will either opt for one and not get both. The starting price is over $400. Remember the PS3 and Xbox 360 slow slumps in 2007? COD: Ghosts will be on the ps3 and xbox, no need to get it on PS4 or xbone. Software sells consoles, they both have to have something killer if they want to start pumping those machines to the masses.
What do you think? Is the Wii U a harbinger of what's to come for these two arriving consoles?
