Don't be hatin. The Wii is at least more innovative than the 360. I think it might end up something like this:

PS3 125,000,000
Wii 35,000,000
360 32,000,000

360 125,000,000
Wii 100,000,000
PS3 Cancelled

I always find it weird to see opinion pieces reminiscing about a time when the article's author wasn't even alive to see it. This "switch" to profit over creativity in the industry started way back in the NES era when Nintendo controlled the number of games each publisher could release in a given time. This, in turn, made publishers carefully choose what was going to be released.

Things only really got better with the 3DO and later PlayStation, which changed how licensed games were handled. That improvement more or less lasted a generation and a half. By the time of the Xbox 360, we had another enormous cash cow trend in the form of the "casual audience." Since then, there has always been this chase for the next biggest thing to maximize profit.

It's not new; it's been going on for more than ten years now. And it's not going to stop when we have the production costs of the industry going higher and higher.
