Yay, more rumors.


Even if they were not rumors, I'd be okay with this. The Omni will not be much more powerful than the Wii U. And the new Xbox won't be a gigantic leap either. And with only one console at the high end of the spectrum, what do you think developers will go for? The two systems close together in power with lower production costs, or the single system (which means less copies of their game sold) and substantially higher development costs.


Hmmm....



Yea, that worked out real well for the Wii with its massive amount of AAA 3rd party games.

That was different. The Wii was pretty far behind both consoles. It made more sense to go with the Xbox and PS3. That said, if the PS Omni is close in power to the Wii U, the most strategic and cost effective way to go will be to develop the game for those two consoles, then port them over to the Xbox afterwards.
