More than the other two did in their first year...

I think the sales totals would disagree with you.


Bandwagon fallacies are so cute.

You think it's a fallacy that the PS4 sold way more than the Wii U?  Okay.  You go with that.



Also another thing to consider is that for most people the marginal benefit of more games decreases with each game, and the marginal cost increases with each game. If one platform has 10 games in the 70's and 8 games in the 80's while another console has 10 games in the 80's and 4 in the 70's which is the better platform? (Let's assume quality is proportional to review score.) Well maybe I only have time/money for 10 games anyway. So as long as diversity is the same (meaning the games will be in genres I am interested in) it makes more sense for me to buy the console with the 10 games in the 80's, even though the total number of games over 70 might be fewer. However, different platforms have different genre densities and that confuses things further.

The Wii sold way more than the PS3. Whats your point?

One thing people seem to forget, in the first year of the Xbox One and PS4, Microsoft and Sony were still publishing games for last gen, too.

Can Nintendo say the same?

No it is a fallacy that it is logically equivalent to, "The PS4 had a better first year in terms of releases than the Wii U."  Your logical equivalency is fallacious.

You should Google what a bandwagon fallacy is.

Nintendo actually supports it's handheld, though. The others can't say the same.

Sony published LBP 3, Destiny, Minecraft, MLB 14: The Show, and SingStar: Ultimate Party as retail games in 2014 for the PS3. All of these were PS3/PS4 multiplats, and only two of them were developed by internal Sony studios. If we were to consider that, we should also consider how NIntendo was actually supporting the 3DS.
