Or is it a result of poor business choices?
I know that there are some of you who don't believe in the third console curse. But there have been a few trends in the history of gaming.
For example, the Nintendo 64 was Nintendo's infamous fall from the top. With the Playstation using disks instead of cartridges, the Playstation had a clear advantage.
The PS3 was definitely subject to the third console curse. The PS3 was Sony's infamous fall from grace. With the high price point of the PS3, and the lack of really stunning games the first few months on the market, people chose other consoles.
But in both cases, it seems that the fall was a result of ignorance of the parent company.
Is the Xbox One "suffering" now because of that ignorance of Microsoft? Or is it the third console curse coming into play?
We've always defined the third console curse as the "fall from the top" in years previous, but should it now be redefined as a sense of ignorance the company gets upon entering the generation?
