Forums - Gaming Discussion - Console gaming belongs to the entertainment industry not the tech industry and Nintendo has won.

I'm declaring victory.

Nintendo's already won because 'content is king'

That's it.

We're just watching some sideshow play out now. Nintendo's won the whole thing and there's little anyone can do about it.

By all means, try to tell me how MS/Sony can survive longterm, I'd love to know.

The hardware game is a battle for price/power, the software game is the opposite and no-one can challenge Nintendo.

:: Pre-Switch, Pokemon was one of Nintendo's biggest IPs, post Switch it's not even top 5::

If Sony would have focused on Tekken and Crash, they might have stood a chance. Their only hope now is to make enough cash to buy the real content kings.

Unfortunately for them, this isn't a game for middle-men.

I'm not trying to get banned, I just want to know how middle-men compete in an era where content is king.

Disney will end up being the 'new Netflix' for the exact same reasons.

Content is King.

I dont get it. Because Sony and MS also focus on power, they dont have any content?



I feel like someone had this argument before the wiiU launched and when third parties said nope because of the "unconventional" tech on the wiiU compared to Ps4/X1, it flopped pretty hard?

MS/Sony content is an add-on to their hardware.

For Nintendo, it's their reason for existing.

This isn't a dig at Sony/MS just a general tend.

Cash is going to go to where it belongs, the content not hardware maker.

The Wii-U was a shit attempt at a Switch.

Nintendo was right to be scared of merging HH and home because of what it could potentially cost them.

They bravely took the decision to make a hybrid before anyone else could despite the potential negatives it would have had to their own business model.

A move very few companies have had the balls to make ie Kodak-digital photography, Sony-MP3s.

Right so tech does matter cause if it didn't, Nintendo's content would have still carried the wiiU to success?

How many game of the year games has PlayStation produced compared to Nintendo?

Sony/MS are in the hardware business but the times continue to change such that those who make good games eventually won't need Sony/MS when every game can be played on your phone. (Fortnite/CoD/PubG/Minecraft/Fifa)

It's Sony/MS who should have been worried about smartphones. Why? Because Nintendo can deal with them/see them off but Sony/MS are no different to Apple/Google in the grand scheme.

They are no different they make hardware to sell software, if selling hardware is their main game why doe their profits come from software '

Where was that cash during the Wii U's tenure , why is MS putting games on PC if it's main purpose is hardware? why do all 3 make little if any profit from hardware and when they do it's usually late in the cycle  this topic has no basis in reality.
