Hard to argue with a lot of those points haha.
But my only counter arguement is that a success, or win, in a generation depends on who makes the most money or turns a profits. Fortunately for this argument that seems to be Nintendo and soon to be MS as well.
Meh, I agree with you mostly, Zucas, but MS Doesn't seems to be making that much of a profit... RROD, shipping fees, repair fees, 3-year warranty, XBOX LiVE Servers, bandwith, I do think they are making a nice profit, but nowhere as CLOSE as Nintendo...
Also, the only reason the PS3 isn't considered the next DreamCast anymore is because of Blu-Ray's win over HD-DVD.
