Biggest Mistake In Gaming History? No.

PS3's 600$ launch price and Nintendo losing third party support because of lack of CD storage rank higher in my opinion.

Agreed on PS3. Not only is it the biggest financial disaster ever, it also allowed competitors to thrive.

The Nintendo CD storage thing. Are you referring to Gamecube? Quite frankly I don't think it was a big deal. Lack of exclusive support was due to the poor sales of the console.

Well Move is much less successful and since Kinect released, the Wii is on the way out and Nintendo is rushing their next system to retail.

 

So yes.

I'm waiting for any reason why they are different. I'm all ears! 



Sig thanks to Saber! :D 

NO; by a loooooong shot.

 

- Sega Saturn launching early and ruining its relationship with retailers and publishers. Paved the way for the death of Dreamcast. Not to mention some of the design choices in the architecture of the console.

- I love the Gamecube more than most people, BUT WHY did they have to make it purple? I could seriously see how it could've sold 10 million more if they just made it look cooler.

- MS for buying Rare. Sure, Rare has been doing OK for them, but they couldv'e bought 10 talented teams for that amount of money. Rediculous.

- Sony for removing other OS from the PS3. I have no problem with this, but we can clearly see what this has done to the company after all the hacks. Also, I just noticed that I have Sega, Nintendo and MS up there so its only fitting to put Sony here too.

 

Sony and Nintendo can still implement a 3D camera system if they want. It can't be that complicated to introduce. MS spent billions advertising so that has to taken into account when measuring the success of Kinect.

I think it's more how it was a great decision for MS to get Kinect. They clearly had a better vision of what to do with it. They had the money to invest and market it unlike the other two. 

No they didn't, they had a superior example to follow.

yeah, because you think Kinect started after Nintendo revealed the Wii?

A small part of me dioed from laughing at this thread. xD kenect did well because it was given a stupidly huge marketing champain. Ever heard of a PSP eye? same tech just a little less powerfull ^^

If it just took a "stupidly huge marketing champain" to make something a success than I think we would see more "stupidly huge marketing champain(s)". You need to accept the Kinect is a hit because its cutting edge technology that appealed to the masses.

The PS Eye is literally a webcam. The Kinect uses a couple cameras, infrared, and some other wacky technology. Hardly the "same tech."

Sadly, Kinect is the kind of stuff that makes you focus on it, the hardware sold too well not to support, so ms is going to rely on third to feed the hardcore while they feed the casuals. 

It sounds like you're saying MS caters to casual and not core.

In reality MS feeds both and relies on 3rd to feed both as well.
