Next-Gen Sales: Who’s Up and Who’s Down?

CCC Says: "Sometimes the truth hurts. I know, because over the last several months I’ve had to face several harsh truths I didn’t expect. We are still very early in the next-gen launch cycle. But instead of a joyous honeymoon period (where revolutionary news games and hardware are keeping us on a euphoric high), we are seeing a rather somber tone sweep over our industry. Why? Because only one company seemingly has the right to celebrate (that’d be Sony). The others are either trying to figure out how to undo the cluster-fuck that was 2013-early 2014 (that’d be Microsoft),or in Nintendo’s case, looking for a window to jump out of as their failed attempt at a half-gen console quietly burns their headquarters to the ground."

What's the point of this article other than to tell people what they already know in a sensationalized way?

Too right.
A ton of hype through advertisement would turn things around for Nintendo, at the very least, since they've got enough great games to get people excited.

They just don't have any effing clue how to portray those games in ways that would excite a core gamer.
The sales for the PS4 are proof enough that hype sells; Nintendo needs to get on that ASAP.

Also, what's with all the doom&gloom articles in such quick succession lately?
Are people afraid of the Wii U recovering and actively trying to kill off any chance of hype for it now that Mario Kart 8 is so close to release, or something?
If so, then that's worse than the Nintendo fanboys who people say are ruining things so much with their white-knighting/denial-of-issu es.

I'm getting a little sick and tired of all of this media bias against the lowest-selling system over something like sales.

Ever heard of beating a dead Epona?
