so nintendo and microsoft merger?

im open for it. nintendo games on xbox one. i would like that


That would be like a dream come true. Sony may be the better choice cuz Pokemon and handhelds, but Microsoft would still be awesome.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

People keep acting like the GameCube was the odd man out of its generation. The proper narrative of the 6th generation is the PS2 dominating everything and Xbox and GameCube battling it out for scraps. I even recall this whole "Microsoft vs Sony" myth dominating at the time it was going down, although the myth was cemented by the more direct Microsoft/Sony clash of the following generation (though Nintendo got ignored there for other reasons...)

Nintendo has butchered many of my favorite series. Unfortunately, I'm still a Nintendo fan at heart, since they did make my first console.


Which ones?

Paper Mario{Basterdized and Neglected}, Samus{Basterdized and Neglected}, Star Fox{Neglected}, Smash{Basterdized}, F-Zero{Neglected}, Wario World{Neglected}, Kirby{Handelized},Collesium{Neglected}, Snap{Neglected}

And I realized the last 3 are technically 3rd party, but they are exclusive.

More like there is no room for Xbox1. As XB and PS are too similar with Nintendo having its own identity.

I think this is a valid point, although it shouldn't be directed at Nintendo only. Technically there is space for three consoles but it's hard to find the balance so that all three can thrive. And, well, right now it is Nintendo's problem. Sony and MS are doing just fine.

No, they are all first party.

Last gen still clearly proves you wrong, but that's just my opinion.

The original Xbox clearly did just as badly as the Gamecube did. In comparison to the PS2's total dominance, one could have used your same argument that there's only room for one console maker.


What he said--close the thread.

Since Nintendo become more unique in it´s way... there is not a third wheel... maybe two very similar ones and... the nintendo one.
