I personally think that the scorpio and PS4 Neo will actually backfire on them.I mean, it wont necesserally causa the PS4 or XOne to lose sales, but these new "itinerations" either wont sell well because they will be more expensive, people will already have a PS4/XOne and/or will just buy the cheapest version.Plus all the potential problems about performance on the simpler models being sacrificed.In another words, I think there is alot of room for error.
As long as Nintendo play their cards right, such as having a great first party lineup, having a good hardware, getting (at least) some third party on board and so on, Nintendo will do just fine.
I guess these new iterations will alienate their fanbase. People will be confused, as for developpers who will now need to develop on significantly much more powerful hardware. Then, we don't know anything about the games that will be released because I can already guess that every Xbox game will be on PC too so there would be almost no need for PC gamers to invest into an Xbox even if it's powerful.
Then, the price. We heard the PS4 Neo will maybe priced at 400 $ and Scorpio .... expect it to be at least 500 $. I don't think a gigantic mass of people will be willing to pay a price like this.
Finally the games, PS4 Neo will get a lot of support for VR games but the public needs to be there or it's going to flop hard. Scorpio,as the Xbone, won't get much 1st party games I think exdept for Halo,Forza,Gears of War ( or maybe, but I doubt it ). So people won't see much appeal to buy this console again.
