no-no. a system wont collapse if a big game bombs, but it definitly loses some of its standing power. like losing a leg, maybe smaller, like losing a foot.Originally Posted by Borch712ers
Xbox wouldnt have came close to the ps2 if it wasnt for halo then halo2. Just as nintendo would not still be around if it werent for the mario series (and all its branches) and zelda.
if games bomb it still may be a great system but it wont have a lasting effect on the gaming community. as toward the end of the last console war, the gamecube very much dissappeared as oppose to the ps2 final put outs of a few big titles, and the xbox stood firmly with only halo2.
but as i said before, the wii currently has no killer app, and is not depending on a single game but instead has put most of its nuts in the first-party development basket. oh, perhaps metriod can pull of killer app status, with a strong multiplayer.
