Why I want the next, Next Gen Wars to be more equal!
So as of right now the Next Gen war looks boring it has the 360 out front but the Wii almost 50% caught up to it (in just 4 months) and the PS3 is dead and costs way to much.
The Wii is helping Nintendo become the best in the Next Gen war but with all these gapes in units sold between the three systems is this a good thing? I don’t think it is. Ok if you look at most Console wars there’s always one console that owns the rest by the end, first it was the Nintendo, then the Super Nintendo, then the PS1 then the PS2 and now the 360 (but not for long).
Most Fanboys say it’s a great thing but boy are they wrong. Look at it this way Back when the Gamecube was losing badly in the last gen wars they lined up the Wii’s first years with games games and more games but after the Wii was priced at 260 and the PS3 at 600. Nintendo lightened up on its game dates Dragon Quest was pushed back until like spring/Summer. Then Mario Galaxy was pushed back into the Fall, then Super Smash was pushed back into November. Then Mario Party was pushed back until the summer and I bet even more games get pushed back, why is Nintendo doing this? Well there could be many reasons for this but I bet one reason is why do we need more good games out if our competition is putting out crap? Ok lets look at the 360 games coming out for the beginning of the year, ok Crackdown ummm ok, Ghost Recon (another gun game, screw that I have Gears of War) and Virtual fighter (no online no point in me wasting 60 bucks on this game)
What does Sony have coming out Lair (looks like a great game but the system costs too much to get this game), Fear (I can get it on the 360) and Oblivion (on the PC and 360)
So why should Nintendo put out Mario Galaxy, Mario Party and Super Smash if they really don’t need too?
So if the PS3 had Devil May Cry and Kingdom Hearts coming out in the next to months and the 360 had Mass Effect and GTA 4 coming out soon, Nintendo would be pressured to put out Mario Party and Mario Galaxy.
So this is why I wish the Next Gen wars were more close because we would have more good games coming out on all 3 systems and the games coming out early then they would be now. For Gamers it’s a Win Win situation and we would see more great games coming out for all 3 systems. So I hope in the next Next Gen Wars all 3 systems are at 100% so we see more and better games.
