Good luck with that, right?
I love this move by Nintendo. If they pull it off correctly they will have a console that launches at about half the price of the others while also boasting some of the most important/best titles in all of gaming potentially available for download.
I think that in the end Nintendo will survive the next round and one of the two giants will fall.
Not really a valid comparison. MS is the 800lb gorilla of the group, but is in second, with nintendo in third. Nintend is doing something different, as always, while MS and Sony are going head to head. My prediction. MS makes serious gains on Sony this generation. It could be quite possible MS outsells Sony in the US, but Sony outsells MS worldwide.
