Xbox One is not a Wii U competitor

After a first look at the new Xbox it, PS4 and Wii U seem to be radically different from each other. What will this mean for the coming years?

Good, because Wii U feels the same.

To be honest, I kind of hope Wii U and Xbox One don't sell well. PS4 seems to be a hit with core gamers and developers. If PS4 can get a lead in the console race, everyone will want to develop for it and the real gamers win. PS4 does have the best of all three consoles features under one hood.

Monopolies are historically terrible. Competition is what will lead to better products.

EDIT: Nintendo may be my personal favorite, but I'd be absolutely heartbroken if Sony in particular stopped making consoles. Competition helps all of the platforms improve.

Sorry but Wii U is here to stay. Xbox One might have to go if everyone is buying PS4s instead of XOnes. Sony has much better chance with this this generation than they did the last. PS3 had poor reception by the media, and developers, but this time everything is looking to be the opposite. Developers are praising the PS4, Sony has gotten aggressive with their AD campaign, Sony stocks rising while MS stocks are dropping, gamers are more excited for PS4, while XboxOne is getting slammed across the entire internet, etc.

You're thinking long term for Sony's survival huh. Why would you ever hope for something like that.


How in the hell does real gamers win if the xbox and wii u dont sale well? that sounds like the exact opposite to me. you sound like a blind sheep fanboy.

what makes you think there aren't "real gamers" on Nintendo consoles. There are gonna be some phenomenal hardcore games on Wii U. Super Smash Bros. is widely known as one of the most technical fighters out there, so much so that it's gonna be a EVO fighting game this year.

Xenoblade 2 will be one of the most hardcore RPG's on any system. It'll be open world, have a badass MMO style battle system, will have online multiplayer and deep character customization as well as breath-taking visuals.

Bayonetta 2 and Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem are more hardcore titles... jesus. Why are you guys so hard headed? The PS4 will be great, but so will the Wii U. So far though, the Xbox One looks atrocious.

I hope so too Sony were the only 1's with enough balls too put decent hardware in their machine and actually target gamers

truechainz1829d ago

The "real gamers win"? Any gamer who wants to pigeonhole themselves to the content of one console has no right to call themselves a real gamer. Take your elitism somewhere else

right now it sure isn't competing with any game consoles, maybe a cable boxes.

I think M$ is trying to get the jump on Apple for their Apple TV, before it comes out. However, I'm sure Apple will have a bigger following than One will along with new things (innovation) as well.

But what we’re all about, in our DNA, is the gaming and the gamers. You buy [PlayStation] because you’re a gamer and you enjoy playing games, and you use it for other purposes, but we’re first and foremost about that core gamer that eats, sleeps and drinks the gaming. - Jack Tretton.

I want to fight for the side that fights for gaming, lol

BeZdaBest1830d ago

yea thats why i buy gaming console in general..

if they were to make a "pure" game machine it'll probably be better because all the extra stuff wouldnt be taxing the systems probably be a lot cheaper..i just want to play games i dont want none of my stuff to show up on facebook or twitter...and i dont want my system to be a media hub..i have a roku and a old pc i use for that purpose..

i understand there trying to give you value with this things.. maybe they should make a core system that only plays games and nothing else. ill buy that for a dollar(not really for a dollar but i hope you understand what i mean...

Bigpappy1830d ago

Well the PS3 will try to compete with both. It already has the touch pad and the Move. It is also rumored to have a Kinect like camera and similar power to X1. So the PS3 has all potential bases covered.

It just needs to lead in one of those areas, and not just copy what the others are doing.

...and that's another post by Bigpappy everyone. *slow clap*

SonyPS41830d ago

It has no chance against Wii U or the PS4 with all this:

-Anti used games
-24 hour offline
-Paid online
-Emphasis on TV entertainment

Neither Wii U or PS4 has ANY of this.
