Who the hell said that the average joe is going to purchase more than one console? The semi-serious gamer will have two console, hardcore... all three. Nintendo knows that they can never compete with Microsoft and Sony in the long run. We;ve seen it in the past, and we'll see it again when the final numbers are released in a few years. Sure, Nintendo ALWAYS does well at launch, even with the shitty Gamecube. But take a look at the final records of the last generation console sales. Here are the numbers to prove it:Originally Posted by JeremyDay

Nintendo's route to the gaming world is great for initial sales, but having weak technology doesn't last nearly as long as putting true "next-generation" technology inside a console. For example, let's all guess which of the three systems will have a longer shelf life? Hmmm, the one with no DVD player, the one with a standard DVD player, or the one with a next-generation Blu-Ray drive? As much as you fanbitches don't want to admit it, the long run will be won by Sony. So deal with it. Oh, and next time you bring an argument, back it up with something other than your worthless words.
