What would happened if Nintnedo Wii U would sell like crazy(breaking all records), and then second console Xbox One also would sell crazy and PS4 flopped? and then Sony says: "This is it, we leave from console gaming"

What would you do then? What would be gaming if Wii U dominated gaming, Xbox One also sold crazy and PS4 flopped? What would happen with gaming in next 5 years?

It would basically be a repeat of last gen.

Yeah but Sony lost a lot money and Sony needs money. if PS4 flopped and made even more loss for Sony, then good bye Sony. Greedy Microsoft who is richest would be even more richer and he could do anything. He could buy Nintendo easily and dominate alone. Wii U would made less online gaming.

I think it would be disaster.

What would I do? I would be happy for Nintendo and Microsoft, and sad for Sony.

If the WiiU won, we'd be playing 360/PS3 level games for another 5 - 10 years :(

It's hard to think about such a thing, because I could never imagine it happening

Anyway, if Sony goes down i'm going down with them

I will never play those kiddie games on the Wii U, or worse the Xbox One

That won't happen.

What if pigs could fly? You might as well ask this question as well since the question you asked is on the same level.

If graphics are important to you, playing games on a console is pretty stupid.

I didn't mention graphics, learn to read better dumbass.

dlc would dminish somewhat, and nintendos next console would be in favor of what the gamer demands.

I would feel bad for Siny and happy for Nintendo.

#19 Posted by nintendoboy16 (28386 posts) -

System Wars and GAF would have a meltdown.

unlikely, people would have bought a X1 over a Wii U, and even that's a stretch as it'd be pretty hard for the PS4 to bomb, even if there was a 50-50 chance it got so hot it exploded and sent hot flying shrapnel into family members and killing them and causing the survivors to contract HIV then cows would still brave the risk

It would be nice to see the most gamer-friendly console actually win this holiday.

Then you are pretty fucking stupid, because the WiiU is more powerful than the 360 and the PS3.

Bless your heart. You can't read too good, can you?

@PurpleMan5000: Lowest power for games, worst controller, worst online, handful of kiddy games released after a whole year, no third party....best for gamers? What gamers? Stupid ones?

#28 Posted by Zaire_nxtgen720 (83 posts) -

Wont happen

#29 Posted by GunSmith1_basic (9908 posts) -

the real danger is for the userbases of the xb1 and ps4 to be cannibalized by pc gaming, which is getting better every year.

In theory the wiiu is immune from the worst of this since they have a very different space and it's based on Nintendo first party software

Like the Wii was "3 times more powerful than Xbox!!!" lol.

It's a Nintendo branded 360/PS3, that can't even run multiplats or do online as well as 7 and 8 year old systems.

Yeah, I can't read too "good". You just demonstrated my point...again.

In his defense, he may not have the best grammar but grammar doesn't mean intelligence. Which I'm incline to favor him over you on that.

So writes the individual who writes incomplete sentences beginning with "which". Jesus...

Beats being simple minded like you.

What a stupid statement. PS4 has fantastic graphics. xBone has decent ones. Wii U games will look severely outdated within the year if they don't already.. And the original statement wasn't even about graphics. What about larger more detailed environments, more dynamic assets and resources

#37 Edited by Micropixel (998 posts) -

If this scenario actually happened, I think we'd see some massive changes in both Sony and Microsoft's strategies going forward.

Not to sound like I'm entertaining the possibility of a PS4/XBOX One flop, but considering the enormous splashes made by both PS4 and XBOX One's launches, there is an awful lot of Wii U buzz throughout the industry.

If the original statement was about larger environments, etc, it is still a stupid statement, as is yours. The WiiU is more powerful than both the PS3 and 360 in every regard, thus is it stupid to claim that games would be on the "level" of the PS3 or 360. I get that this is difficult for you guys to grasp, but you should read it until you understand.

I never said they would be on the level of ps3 or 360.

YOU said if graphics are important to you, playing games on a console is pretty stupid.

^This is a stupid statement.

Another Grade-A post by the mems. Keep on memming mems.

It would be a disaster for gaming op.

nothing because the PS4 can't flop.

By your logic, the X1 flopped harder.

Never said it didn't. It did ok considering how much the deck was stacked against it.

Prove it dipshit. The multiplats are inferior and the exclusives are underwhelming. 2D Mario @720P is not a show of power. The worst version of Assassin's Creed IV (worse than 360 and PS3 versions) is not a show of power.

Yeah 2GB of RAM is nice, what about CPU and GPU and everything else though? How much is going to the tablet? How much is wasted?

Come talk to me when a WiiU game is bigger than Skyrim or GTAV, or prettier than Gears/Halo/Forza/Uncharted/God Of War/Crysis series', or with more enemies on screen than Dead Rising, or with better AI than Killzone 2/3, or with better online/community features than Halo, or with as many players as MAG, or with more customisation than Little Big Planet, or more destructible terrain than Battlefield/Red Faction, or really any sort of superiority in any way. Feel free to call back in 5 years when WiiU has done NONE of those things.

Face it, the WiiU will have some awesome games, but they'll be 360/PS3 standard, not next gen. Same as how the Wii's best games coulda been done on an Xbox original.

Best games, lowest price, best controller, no hidden fees.
