Why am I getting dejavu from 6th gen?
Everything that's been happening seems VERY familiar, and I'm surprised nobody else has noticed.
The PS4 is the best choice. It's cheap, powerful, has great multiplats, a few great exclusives, and offers innovation aside from the console at a different price. The PS4 is selling extremely well, and is dominating the other 2.
Didn't the EXACT same thing happen with the PS2? The PS2 is the best selling console in history, and offered extra features to go with it with a price if you wanted it.
The Xbox One is a decent console, and launched with an awesome game: Dead Rising 3. It also has Halo coming, and other shooters that make it a valuable console to own. Yet it can't compete with the PS4, and sells sluggishly.
Again, the same thing happened last gen. The Xbox launched with Halo, and had Halo 2 coming. (Bad example, I know.) This console ALSO sold sluggishly, and could not compete with the PS2.
Lastly, we have the Wii U. It's not selling as well as it's older brother, but the Wii U has some great games now, and great games coming, which is why it's still alive. It will never copy the Wiis success, but has enough games and is cheap enough to be a secondary console or possibly even a main if you're really casual.
Again, an EXACT repeat of the Gamecube, which could not copy the success of the N64, sold sluggishly, yet had many great games that people put time into. The ultimate secondary console, and again, even a main console if you're really casual. Furthermore, the GBA was doing well while the Gamcube was selling sluggishly, now the 3DS is selling well while the Wii U is selling sluggishly.
Have we passed through some sort of time void? Not that I'm complaining. The sixth generation of consoles was personally my favorite generation of consoles, and there are SOME differences considering the PS2 was not that powerful, but my points still stand.
What do you think? Am I a crazy old man, or are we going back in time?
