I'm loyal to Nintendo, but that's different. they actually have first party games. And I'm a fanboy. Odds are when the next best console comes around, say its the PS4 vs. the xboxWHATEVA, and the PS4 is the dominant one, all the 360 fanboys are going to run off to the PS4 and forget about the 360.
hell. even if Nintendo doesn't have the biggest base of core gamers, it'll atleast keep those people while the fanboys for other consoles are going to abandon ship eventually.
Call me crazy, but I'm pretty sure that Sony has some first party games. I could be wrong though, who knows. Sony could have ridden the wave of good feelings toward Sony, but they screwed up the most important thing: Price. If the next Nintendo console debuts at 600 bucks, I'd love to see this super loyal Ninty fanbase show up. Marios not that important.
