But Microsoft is the saviour of the gaming industry, the one who stands up against Sony is tyrannical gaming reign. Microsoft gave us gamepass and Phil. They are the hero the industry deserves and should defeat the evil demon lord called PlayStation. Next up it should enroll Japanese publishers in its battle against PlayStation and give gamepass to everyone.
Nintendo will do what Nintendo does in the meantime. Probably succeeding in doing what it does 2 out of 3 times and fail 2 out if 3 times. Perhaps they should buy Square though, just to mess with PlayStation and secure some great games.
*Obviously sarcasm and yes Nintendo and PlayStation should up their game mainly PlayStation since Nintendo does quite well at the moment. But a new Wii U or GameCube van always happen when they are too comfortable.
I'm not a fan when a company fails, people say it's bcuz they were "comfortable" and I've seen a lot of ppl claim this. There is no such thing as being comfortable in the business world. Yes, there can be bad decisions, was PS3 a bad decision? Could be, the cons outweighed the pros. Was the Xbox One a bad decision? I wouldn't say so, but the Kinect surely was. It didn't have many first-party games and didn't sell well, but that's not bcuz they were "too comfortable". Xbox was never the biggest out of the three, and had pretty big operating losses, how can they be comfortable. Was the Wii U a bad decision? People would agree the marketing was, but the console and idea was one of Nintendo's best imo. The console itself wasn't bad, it's everything we needed, but everything else was terrible such as the timing. Most Wii U ports sells extremely well and are rated highly, that proves the quality wasn't issue. In fact, people only see the home console side, but Nintendo's strongest division was always the handheld side. If I had to pick, being comfortable is what Apple is doing for example, and what most gaming publishers are currently doing.
A short-term fail also doesn't correspond to a long-term fail. Such as the Wii U we just mentioned, the games ultimately sold well, the Wii U experience ultimately resulted in the success of the Switch. Think about it, the Switch is basically what they wanted to do with the Wii U. The original Xbox is also an example, Microsoft started off with huge losses, but I think them joining the gaming market was ultimately a good decision for Microsoft. People need to start thinking in different perspectives and with broader mindset.
