DS vs. PSP.
Graphics donÂ´t matter.
It is about the games - do you really think anyone would buy a PS3 because it can do raytracing?
ThatÂ´s the funniest thing I ever heard
If Microsoft and Nintendo are able to bring a lot of awsome games than the 360 and the Wii will sell good. Not because they can do raytracing... man...
10 years ago the N64 could do anti aliasing. Did it help? Nope.
Topic: ItÂ´s a nice decision from Microsoft to wait until 2011 - so they have time to build a large userbase and the market could grow all in all.
I doubt MS can sell 50 million 360Â´s because of Japan but 40 million seems possible. Because of the big differences between the big 3 the market could grow rapidly in this generation.
No, graphics don't matter for handhelds. They do to some people for consoles. (If you take 360 and PS3 together they are outselling the Wii, given the similarities between the 2 hi-def systems and more expensive nature that shows that more than 50% of the gaming market would prefer HD over the Wii)
Not because of the graphics, but because of the games. You know that as good as I do. If it was about the graphics people would buy a PS3 and no Wii would have been sold in the US today.
Of course graphics are a big part of the games we play but honestly: Would you buy a PS3 because it can do "Raytracing"?
EDIT: Okay guys, I read everything you wrote now and one question to the statement "the next XBox wonÂ´t have a chance because the PS4 will have better graphics" - tell me one system with a major competition that had the best hardware of itÂ´s generation and became market leader. None? Oh... crazy...
Maybe the SNES is a different case but we know Sega broke the Neck of the Megadrive / Genesis by itself.
