Because of people who think the Switch might be the last Nintendo console.

So it's like this existed for before the switch did.

What do you mean?

None.



PS4 - over 100 millions let's say 120m
Xbox One - 70m
Wii U - 25m

Vita - 15m if it will not get Final Fantasy Kingdoms Heart and Monster Hunter 20m otherwise
3DS - 80m

Microsoft, almost all of the exclusives they haven't cancelled yet are coming to PC, they're trying to convert all Windows devices with the same adaptive shell design and universal app platform, including XBOX. The Scorpio will probably use AMD's new cards and that will be cheap enough by the time of it's release that they can sell it for a "reasonable" price, but it's basically going to be a more expensive pre-built PC without the modularity, x86 software and paid online. It isn't really selling well either, so Scorpio will probably be the last XBOX.

People talk about Nintendo being next in line, but I'd heavily disagree, they have an ocean of money reserved, and they aren't lacking ideas, games nor buyers. They will go third party if they fail in every aspect and loose their entire fanbase in a 100 years. If anything Nintendo will be the last man standing in the world of consoles.

I mean that this isn't an original or timely topic. I've seen dozens of threads asking literally the exact same question since I started posting here. So I'm wondering why it's such a popular question to ask.



Well, this is new.

Read.

Microsoft seems the most likely to me. They've been drifting closer to the exit door ever since Satya took over the company.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Relavence towards how unpredictable the gaming industry is now.

The problem with Microsoft leaving is where would all their IPs go?

PC,  they already basically all are lol. 

They definitely won't leave console market before building solid userbase on PCs. It also probably should be bigger than their current Xbox userbase for them to consider leaving console market because they can't charge for XBL Gold on PC the same way they do on consoles because PC has a lot of alternative services without paid online. MS makes a lot of money from XBL Gold and I think the publishers share profit from selling games on Xbox Store as well. Right now MS doesn't have any game on PC except their own, RE7, COD:IW and a few indies. So, they won't leave console market anytime soon. And if they will leave sometime I still think they will have some kinda AppleTV-like Xbox-branded device which will stream Win10 games from their Azure cloud-servers. The only way I see them leaving is leaving video gaming industry at all. Without shifting to PCs.

 

PS. I voted for Nintendo myself. Unfortunately if Switch flops they will be in a big trouble because it seems that the only people who are interested in their consoles are their fans which is not good. Also it seems that they can earn a way more money from cheap mobile games and they already heading this way, so why bother with hardware at all. If it happens it's gonna be really sad for me because Nin are my favourites from all three

They could, but so far they haven't earned much money from mobile games, having to split Pokemon Go profits.
