To clarify… The no. 1 seller isn’t the only success in the console wars. For instance, the DS and PSP were both successful, viable, profitable systems even if the DS won out for total sales (when I last saw…) However, making the big assumption that all these new Android consoles actually draw enough of the market to them, there’s a theoretical point where instead of a million consoles sold by each company (just a sample, not total sales lol), there’s 100k here, 100k there, maybe 50k for some others, and maybe one or two are actually profitable, but most of them lose too many sales to all the others to be worthwhile.

After all, there’s a reason we no longer see game consoles by Magnavox, Mattel, Atari, Sega, etc. There’s only so many dollars out there for the lot of them.

    Do you hear that? It’s the echo of the market crash that almost killed gaming back when everyone and their dog was making shitty Atari games and they buried tens of thousands of copies of ET in mass graves. Somehow I don’t think what this generation needs is 10 consoles to choose from. [conspiracy theory]Maybe it’s a false flag operation from PC giants like Valve and nVidia to devalue the console market, crash it, and pull people back into PC gaming so instead of needing a new GPU every 8-12 …
