This is true, but only on the FIFA and COD. There are lots of people that want something else than just your regular COD and FIFA, just like there are people that only care about those two. PS4 was what these people wanted, while none of the three was what everyone else wanted.
True, but a lot of those people still fall in to what I'm talking about. People that just want a good place to play games, that's who the PS4 is for and that's a pretty sizable market by itself.
Sure there no doubt are people that want new control schemes or other innovations/gimmicks like that, but there's always going to be a large audience that just wants to play bigger/better games with a familiar set up. Being succesful due to that audience isn't because "the others fucked up" it's because Sony knew exactly what that audience wanted and they made a console that suited those people down to a tee.
Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
