South Park is spot on.
What people forget about consoles is that they are about the games. In this “next generation” war I think Microsoft is completely lost it by focusing on TV instead of games.
Nintendo still has their titles but they’ll need to adapt to the ever changing world. They need to bet on their own console by taking a hit for the first half of their consoles lifetime. A comparable power / price.
The long play: PS4 and Xbone is too similar for their own good. Xbone will become the non-gamer console (prev-gen: Wii). The fact that Xbox will be spun out by the new Microsoft’s CEO is still very much in play. The next big three will be Nintendo, Sony, and Valve.
Nintendo will live on their own wonderful world. Let’s be honest, you can’t get the same gaming experience when you play Zelda or Mario. Any other shooter or action adventure experiences (Uncharted — Tomb Raider, Gears of War — Mass Effect) are replicable.
