Well, it's a 9th generation console so, it's not suppose to compete in that sense. It's like back in the day, asking if the Dreamcast could compete against the PS1.
Thats some really bad logic.
If the NX releases and its main competitors are the PS4 & Xbox One, for the longest part of its lifetime, why exactly isnt it suposed to compete in that sense?
9th gen my arse, performance wise Nintendo NX will be a 8th gen console, and sales wise, it ll compete on the market against 8th gen consoles.
Basically I dislike calling things by "gens" because its so misleading.
Without 3rd party support Nintendo are wasting their time. They tried a partnership with sega which was a flop, they need to secure more third party titles or they'll become irrelevant. I've seen Nintendos section at the video stores nearly vanish and now the WiiU is fighting with the vita for the last over corner at the back of the video store
Im seeing the same thing where I live.
The Wii U section keeps shrinking, in stores.
