Because anecdotes can serve as evidence. I was a Nintendo gamer first long before I began playing Playstation and still a big Nintendo fan today. However, I still have interest on playing games on other consoles, not just Playstation.
Also, your claim that most customers aren't multiconsole owners is vastly unproven and largely fabricated to fit your argument that Nintendo gamers have little to no interests playing games on other consoles. Heck, your original argument is no longer recognizable because you're trying too hard looking for a reason to validate your argument.
This is no longer up for debate. The majority of people disagree with you and Zanten, Scizor, Maciveli, michael_stutzer, I, and others have said our share of the deal. Remember this. Just because you're not impressed with the PS4's summer sales doesn't mean that they are, for a fact, unimpressive. We didn't particularly have a problem with your opinion (except for FlamingWeasel), but you were waving it around as if it's a fact.
That's weak ...
Most gamers actually aren't multiconsole owners for each genertaion ... http://www.theesa.com/facts/pdfs/esa_ef_2013.pdf
Out of the entire gaming industry's lifetime a US household that does have a dedicated gaming console is 2 on average. It's a FACT that most gamers do NOT own multiple consoles per generation ... Much less buys a console every generation. This case is even more evident outside of the US. If your basing your rebuttal on the internet's reception then you know you've already failed. Where's YOUR claim that a lot of gamers do own multiple consoles in the same generation ?
You've just contradicted yourself ... You say for a fact that it's unimpressive then go on to say it's an opinion. LOL
Is this pitying for FlamingWeazel I see here ? Y'know what if your not going to actually argue my point then I may as well just leave this thread cause it's a FACT that the PS4 is average compared to the PS2 or the WII.
