Current Generation to Lag the Next?
The Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 equally provide realistic power and have broadened by providing a multitude of entertainment. Consoles are no longer a one trick pony as you can access different entertainment services, listen to music, browse the web and watch a massive archive of movies.
Its best put that they both satisfy many impulses to keep you amused by offering diverse functionality. Video game-wise we’re seeing a massive increase with titles being launched through the online marketplaces to occupy players for a very long time.
Do note that massive titles later this year such as Watch Dogs are going to be made available, so I must pose the question as to why would we need to go next gen? What we already own holds further longevity that can outshine how the previous generation performed during the last transition.
Xbox One and Playstation 4 units probably will fly off the shelves in the early going; I don’t have a lot of doubt that’ll be the case. I believe Microsoft and Sony are going to suffer great difficulty in drawing customers away from their already competent machines to go out and purchase the newest systems.
Nintendo has possibly made the best choice by releasing the Wii U a year earlier to combat the console war that it doesn’t want to be a part of while in running at full motion. The Wii U is an established product that’s already begun by building Nintendo’s next generation fan base, they also have the advantage through being able to reduce pricing more effectively to captivate peoples attention to keep customers away from the competition.
The jump between the Wii & the Wii U is significant enough to warrant the upgrade however the Wii U still wouldn’t be the most justifiable purchase to make if you already own the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3. Introducing the next big consoles initially appeals to the players that “must-have” the best out there, that target audience has high demand yet the market has been divided. Leaving out backwards compatibility won’t help motivate sales either as gamers may see a sudden jump to be not worth the money. The smart consumer will bide his time until the current generation interest has bled dry before voyaging onto the next model.
