Nintendo is Kratos as MS and Sony are titans. How Wii U will be fine this gen.

OK, We have to accept one thing....

Nintendo for whatever reason they have enjoy making their consoles less than superior.
Every-Single-Time

Yes it's annoying I know.
It's like god mode is readily available at any given time.

Nintendo: "NOPE! We play the industry on legendary setting!
Changing our name to "XX Nintendo X Pro X Elite Sniperz God XX!!!!1!!one11!1!"


*ahem*
Sorry.

You have to hand it to Nintendo for lasting this long doing the crazy ass stunts they manage to pull off time after time.

If any other company tried to do what Nintendo does they would die a quick horrible death.

Now that we can all agree that the minds at Nintendo are mentally insane lets see how the Wii U can survive this onslaught of power headed their way!

Xbox 720 -
It will be a very safe bet to assume this console will be the most powerful of the 3 next gen.

Unicron from transformers was also epic powerful.
Now he's just a head with 1 eye endlessly floating in outer space.
Could this be MS's fate?

Hardware should be the least of your worries this time around.
It's what rumored to go with the console that scares me.

- No used games, friends are charged to watch a movie, price of games could be even higher, becomes even less of a gaming console and more like a poor man's pc.

That said Xbox 720 will easily be the most expensive console next gen bar none.

Playstation 4 -
Sony said it themselves that they won't do another "ps3".
Weak console confirmed? doubtful.

Ps4 hardware wise if ANYTHING will be closer to wii u than to Xbox 720.
This by no means is a bad thing.

As a result the ps4 will likely cost less than Xbox 720, but possibly more than Wii U.

How will this all tie together?
If to say ps4 and Wii U are (even to some degree) able to play the same games Xbox 720 can consumers will buy the cheaper console, and not the 720.

Wii U and ps4 will already be ahead.
What next?

User base will grow greatly for both sony and Nintendo consoles possibly 2x-3x that of 720.

Once developers see this they will make games for the consoles that has the larger install base meaning Xbox 720 COULD get ports of Wii U \ PS4 games.

It will be much cheaper to make for the weaker console first vs having to downgrade on lower end consoles.

Porting to 720 will be cheap because it won't require as much optimization due to it's strength.

In the end Wii U and Sony will come out on top better than Xbox 720 due to having more games YOU want to play.

How will generation 8 end?
Like this.

1st. Sony
2nd. Nintendo
3rd. MS

This is how I see things unfolding.
Feel free to call me out on this in the future if I am wrong. (or right)

Opinions?

SNES could have supported CD-Rom
N64 - Could have supported CD-Rom killing sony altogether.
Gamecube could have supported fill size DVD plus other features Xbox and PS2 had.

Just because a console is strong doesn't mean instant win.

Neogeo, CDi, Sega CD, 32x, 3Do, Turbo Duo etc say Hi.

I didn't say it will win 8th gen.
I'm pointing out that odds are Wii U will not tank like some think it will.

*edit*
I'm just looking at this from a realistic point of view.

I rag on the WiiU but I doubt it will tank. I may even buy one down the road.

A "feature" that would kill any console is not being able to play used games.
