Realistically Does the Console NX Have Any Chance Against PS4/XB1?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Realistically Does the Console NX Have Any Chance Against PS4/XB1?

as a secondary console: yes
as a primary console: no

Nintendo can't reach people who don't own a PS4 or Xbox One. Those people will prefer the PS4 or Xbox One. Nintendo has to aim for people who already own a PS4 or Xbox One and want to have a secondary console. Every thing else would be complete nonsense from Nintendo and would end in another flop.

It's all about building up a big lead against ps5. It's a next gen console.



Of course not, but I doubt Ninty cares too much about competing with Sony and MS.

You definitely can't say that because we don't know what NX exactly will offer, espacily because it seems Nintendo again want completely new and different product that will have mass appealing, similar to Wii.

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.

2017 isn't even the "mid point" of the generation, it would be the late point of the generation (last 1/3).

No, mid-point.



LOL Nope. Nintendo will just have launched a new console that isnt even in the middle of a decade long cycle that Sony has started (with Microsoft following like a dog behind them) and can only probably pick up table scraps.



There's just something off with WiiU. I spoke to a few people recently who love Zelda and Mario, knew all about WWHD, TPHD and MM. But they don't own a wii u, they say they will get one but atm it's a bit pricey.

If NX can break this illusion, and actually blow people away, so their like wow look at that new Mario game, they may have a chance off selling atleast N64 levels again



All a head start means is that the X bone and PS4 will be old hats when the NX comes out.

Nintendo is going to be aiming for a larger market with the NX. Nintendo will also be also aiming to make the old repetetive and stagnating console market obsolete. It will not just disrupt the competition, but will strike to dismantle it.

Will Nintendo launch with some hit software to kick off the NX era? Let's say they will, and so Nintendo dominance in the market will return immediately. Microsoft and Sony are aiming at smaller targets, 100 million hardware units. Nintendo will likely be aiming for their numbers last generation, almost 260 million hardware units by the end of the next "cycle" if it will still be that.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Of course not, except if it's a huge sucess like the Wii, but i don't see that happening.
