Which Game System Will Win The Console Wars?

Although there are three next-generation game consoles, one of which has already been released, the battle is really between Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT) Xbox One and Sony's (NYSE: SNE) Playstation 4. Nintendo launched the Wii U, the successor to the original Wii, last year, but sales have been disappointing. While the Wii U is less expensive than both the Xbox One and the Playstation 4, the console is also not nearly as powerful.

Well there's little doubt that PS4 will win. But competition is good for the entire industry.

Honestly I'm just gonna go back to my roots during the PSX and PS2 days and won't give a damn about who wins this console war..

I'm just gonna play my PS4 games, enjoy them, than move on to the next.

what war. I listen to the news and I am not familar with this war.

so is there a war between... subways and mcdonald or left handed sissors and right handed sissors or Iphones and smart phones.

Drama Queens! give it a rest.

Yes there is a war.

Stop trying to seem insightful, or beyond the war.

Cola wars exist, fast food wars exist, and console wars exist.

3DS will sell the most overall, except for maybe the PS4 in the long run.

In terms of console sales, my guess is going to be PS4. It's the safe bet. PS4 has all of the positive momentum, and Sony has already won two generations sales-wise, not to mention they made the two highest-selling game consoles of all time.

The underdog is the Wii-U. I'm uncertain if Nintendo could pull a win out since the odds are stacked against them, but who knows? The SNES managed to beat the Genesis even though the Genesis had an 18-month headstart.

Microsoft? I don't think they're even fighting the "console wars" anymore. They're aiming to tackle Google and Apple, and if a few games just so happen to come out on their all-in-one box? So be it.

Shhh...! Don't tell Nintendo and the XboxOne guys but the war is already over...

PS4 for me. More focused, gamer friendly and stronger system specs.

my apologies if this seems rude but, weren't people saying that the PS3 would win the 7th generation before it encountered a major block in sales for a little while? Many said the same with the Wii U. I feel it may seem a bit too early to mark a console as a winner just yet. lets give it some time after ALL the consoles are released.

My guess is that xbox-one will be the winner.

NatureOfLogic1745d ago

Well no one can say that your guess is wrong. My guess is, PS4 will easily win and wipe the floor with competition, but again no one can say I'm wrong either. I just don't see any reason to get Xbox One over PS4 if you can only have one console next gen. Plus, I've seen firsthand what MS is really trying to accomplish. I won't blindly support a future I don't agree with.

No way Belking! They don't call you Mr Unpredictable for nothing...

I predict that you will be molded to a gorilla by

I think the wii u will win, it has a one year start over the others and MARIO, ZELDA, SMASH BROS. DK, MARIO KART, MON0OLITH X, too many big frachises, and with the x box one off to such a terrible start after a horrible E3, and when you get a micro soft worker to say that the x box brad is a CRUMMY PRODUCT, YOU KNOW YOU ARE IN TROUBLE!! NINTENDO EMPLOYEES HAVE NEVER TRASHED THE WII U!! SO, with it being just nintendo and sony, I think nintendo can win, if they make the right moves.

thomasmiller1745d ago

and look how much money microosft has lost on the x box product 6 billion to 10 billion dollars!!! WOW!! htis is deep trouble for microsoft and yet the trolls and the biased media, thin Nintendo is the one that is doomed?? oh well, what ever helps the trolls sand media sleeps well at night!

Manic20141745d ago

6-10 Billion...............Where the hell did you get those number's. Nintendo is the one whom is doing bad in business hence they had to sell the wii u in a lower price compared to originally planned; So they can dodge administration.

Belking1745d ago (Edited 1745d ago )

Dude, don't even go there with money loss. We all know sony has been bleeding red for years. Selling off assets, their buildings and cutting bonuses to help pay for things and save money. The xb1 and wii-u can totally fail and both will still be in a better position than sony. Samsung and LG have been cleaning their clock for years and they have lost market share in the gaming market to nintendo and MS. PS4 is an improvement but they aren't out of danger just yet.

Now i will get tons of disagrees but what I said is a fact. Remember who's credit was downgraded to junk not long ago. You don't replace CEO's because business is going great.

Manic20141745d ago

Microsoft had a terrible unveiling but a very successful E3 with just showcasing there games. Overall they are getting good pre-orders but still behind the PS4. To be honest Out of the three consoles Wii u is much more likely to get third place this gen. Microsoft employee calling the box brand crummy........It was by an EX MS employee whom was against MS going into gaming. sure the wii u could gain more momentum once the new games are released it would still be overshadowed by the release of PS4 and Xbox one.

shibster881745d ago

Defo ps4, with indie support and more exclusives and now they have released the feature were you can play your games by signing into any other ps4, and its cheaper and has 50% more power and more flops, its an around good friendly system.

Ksar1745d ago

I'm pretty sure Xbox One will win

first1NFANTRY1745d ago

just like they won this gen? oh wait...
