Doesnt effect me since i dont play on console. Couldnt care which one of em went out of business.

Its funny how someone always has to throw out a topic to get everyone fighting. Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo will be fine. Just keep supporting gaming.

It would be boring with only two competitors.

BitbyDeath1565d ago

Agreed, i hope we get more.
Bring on Apple or Samsung or one of the many other talented technology firms to join in.

I dont see how the Wii is compitition against the PS and Xbox.. Both have very differrent games

Why would 1 or 2 NOT survive? It's just a random belief that fanboys have. All 3 have many more years in the industry.

If anything a 4th will break through, but the current 3 aren't going away. Gaming is so much more mainstream these days. It's not like how SEGA went poof.

I hope they all survive, each console is amazing in its own way

where this rumour of a console maker dropping out came from, someone obviously sees them as a threat and wants them out. Maybe apple are going to release a console and want the competition gone.

There was a rumor recently about one of the console makers joining a cloud gaming type service. Thus not making a new console. We know Wii U is coming out this year. So out of sony and Microsoft who could it be? Me personally I just think ony and microsoft saw you don't have to have the best tech to be successful. I'm looking forward to next Gen.... Its going to surprise a lot of gamers in what they see.

I believe that's the only thing that could really move the gaming industry a bit. Apple is a well known company world-wide and would definitely attract the casuals if done right (ex, iPad/iPhone/Mac connect ability, etc).

I could actually see how they'd do it, too.
- Connect iTunes/Game Center Account
- Plays all games bought on iPad/iPhone
- Most likely use Cloud Gaming so the box itself isn't expensive (OnLive-style).
- Tons of third-party support from well known Dev's
- Use iPod/iPhone/iPad as a touchscreen gaming controller (Wii-U style) or alt-display (which would be huge since almost everyone has an iPhone/iPod nowadays).

Just a few ideas that could actually be possible.

Only problem is I could see a massive amount of "Angry Birds"-style games dominating the market if this were to happen. Sure, it'd bring game prices down, but you'd also be getting what you're paying for.
