Who will win the next Console War?

With the next generation of consoles knocking at our door, the question on most people’s mind is who will win the next generation war: PlayStation, Microsoft or Nintendo.

Will PS4 take advantage of its full potential and win the next generation console race? (Microsoft, Next-Gen, Nintendo, PlayStation, PS4, Wii U, Xbox One)

Depends, we already have a clear overview of the PS4, we only don't know what the console will look like (but who cares. If all of these Xbox 720 rumors are true then I personally think the PS4 can win. I would never buy an always online game but imagine what an always online console would be like. Matienence would mean no play time, and servers would constantly need observing. Just look at how SimCity went down, in my overall thoughts if all of these rumors and specs come to shape, the PS4 can win. I am sure everyone will have a clear answer by E3

Agreed. I can't really wait for E3 to arrive and enlighten us about how gaming is going to be over the next 5-7 years.

PS4 because right now the next xbox aint looking so good with all this DRM talk. They would have to pull out something crazy in their hat to gain the lead. So with that all in mind it looks like PS will easily pull out on top this time like when PS2 came out. PS3 took awhile but it got there and now because of its success we have the next phase with PS4 finally :)

i know allot of people who do nothing but play cod, nba2k13,Madden and halo/gears, i think those guys will buy their xbox again, plus i know ms will probably drop 360 support but sony will keep ps3 for a while like they did with ps2, i think the xbox will sell more at first because xbox owners/ fans will have more reason to buy one, while ps3 owners will be good for at least another 2-3years if they wanted to wait. it may change after that but really who knows. The wiiu will start selling well once it has games released,and as the cheapest console it will be the first thing parents consider for their kids, plus if that big casual market of old ladies and family still exsists next gen then that market probably will go to wiiu.

Gamers will win with ps4
ps3_pwns  +   833d ago
i agree wii u will not win thats for sure and the only way x720 would win is if people didnt know it was a rip off and taking away there god given rights. the only way x720 could come close to winning is if people like halo fps all day more then having more games and tons of different kinds of games and japanese games that the ps4 will offer. out of x720/ps4 the ps4 will have more games and the better quality third party games and more dlc xclusivity. someone please tell me why you would get an x360 under these circumstances if it and the ps4 end up being the same price. i just want to understand your thinking

The wii is no longer in the race. white like a rabbit, this is a turtle race son.

other than the third party part you basically described the wiiu when describing the ps4, it's still anyones game.

I agree. Gamers win in the end as we will have 3 very good consoles with some of the best games ever made on all 3.

The gamers that know how to have fun and don't berate others for having a different system, preferences, etc. will win the war.

Flawsless Victory for SONY
TimeSkipLuffy  +   833d ago
No one will win the war. All of them have a loyal fanbase. There will be a winner in regards of sales but that does not mean the company has won the war!
N0S3LFESTEEM  +   833d ago
The true winners will be anyone playing next-gen games.

There is no console war. Its just a drummed up Fanboy fed meadia headline. There is a sell enough hardware and software to make a profit business. These 3, oh sorry, Sony and Microsoft will continually be supported by The big publishers and devs on a regular basis.

Who sells the most tv's? Dishwashers? Fridges? Exactly, it doesn't matter because they are all still here.

LOL, why do I have a feeling that whoever wrote this garbage piece got an account on N4G.

A couple of exerts:
"And with rumors like the console requiring an always on internet connection and not supporting playing used game, I’d say GAMERS should keep away from the new Xbox720." LOL, sounds familiar around here.

"The biggest surprise was the announcement of Destiny, a game being exclusively developed for the PS4 by Bungie Studios" Please, this guy is totally clueless which is also a trait common on N4G. smh

His intelligence fits perfectly with this site. Its funny how people have extreme short term memories. Once the PS3 got announced people were writing articles such as this one. And people were saying "The PS3 will make the Xbox 360 the next dreamcast."

At the time sure I was thinking the same thing except I wasn't being a fanboy about it. I was looking at history and how PS2 dominated.

Well that tuned out not to be the case and (sadly) MS fanboys were re-born. For a large amount of this generation.

The past couple of years the PS3 simply put out more first party games then Xbox and Sony fans stormed the interment once again. Lol that's enough incentive for them.

Fast Forward today and a similar situation is happening as we speak except the new Xbox has not been announced.

As excited and happy Sony fanboys are and trashing everything else like typical fanboy fashion be prepared for an equal upset. If early days of this gen is anything to go by.

Fanboys never learn and have bad memories.

In terms winning? Fanboys never win, Real gamers win.

IRetrouk  +   833d ago
Its anyones for the taking, personaly im going for a ps4, then if ms impress will get that second, wii u eventually if they can get some games on there that interest me, this whole console war is bs, started by the media to get more hits, as long as all three have games then we are all set.
BabyTownFrolics  +   833d ago

I will buy both consoles cause that's how i roll.

It depends how you look at it...
If you don't work for a console manufacturer and you actually care who "wins" you're already a loser.

Gamers... of course... nothing better than competition for OUR Money...

Means that game companies will do what ever they can to get it...
cedaridge  +   833d ago
I will make no decision until I see the Microsoft conference.
puamdefokejpn  +   833d ago
I mean seriously,.. I doubt it is going to be wii-U (regardless the price),.. And it won't be xbox next,.. since PS3 overtook it, while launching a year and a half later(here in Europe) and it is still more expensive than 360 by quite a bit,..And will still sell 3 years from now.

US market is huge,.. but even if everyone would prefer nexbox ,.. and that is not true,.. Sony will still win hard,..

In the end it really does not matter,.. As long as they stay in the game and you keep getting games,..and exclusives you like.

It will be close between PS4 and Xbox, and it will be whoever captures the Euro market.

Japanese will buy PS4 over Xbox
Americans will buy the Xbox over PS4

Europeans will buy the console with the better games.
