If Nintendo is so inferior, how come it's outselling the competition?

Nintendo does first party content fantastically well, but third party devs rarely do well with Nintendo's systems. Nintendo is not inferior, people just mistake their strong focus on their own games and them not trying to branch out into gorey shooters as them being "inferior". In reality when it comes to first party game development NIntendo is still the top of the class. But don't tell that to your average 14 year old that thinks Arkham Asylum is the epitome of artistic expression or gaming.

Because delusional fanboys and stupid kids who love teh marios and don't give a crap about hardware love sucking that nintendo *******. Take any mediocre game and they could slap mario on it and it will sell. Nintendo is not a company, its a CULT.

So if Nintendo is so technologically inferior, how come they keep winning

Uhh, after Sony joined the gaming market, Nintendo "won" (sales-wise) only once.

Grandpas and soccermoms love Nintendo; that's why they buy it instead of Sony or Microsoft.

Fixed. Real gamers have either a PS3 or a 360. Or both.


Actually, REAL gamers have ALL the consoles and a gaming PC.


Actually, REAL gamers buy whatever systems they enjoy.


I'm going to have to agree with the guy you're quoting. Real gamers aren't whiny little kids that think their system is better than the others and that troll everyone else. Real gamers DO buy all the systems b/c they enjoy games no matter the console. I just got a ps3 and I have a wii and I have a 360 and I have a gaming pc. I'll be getting a wii-u soon enough(money's tight atm). You're just mad that you can't experience everything there is out there.

PS2 won the console war against Gamecube and Xbox

PS2 was infact the technologically inferior of the three

Wii outsold 360 and PS3

Wii is technologically inferior


Tech =/= Winning console wars, because if you really care that much about tech you get a gaming PC

The 3DS is outselling the Vita.
The Wii U is outselling Sony and Microsoft because they haven't even released a new console.

Its mostly due to the fact that the planet has become an Idiocracy majority wise. Its the same reason why cawadoody sells the best and moronic devs are ruining every franchise under the sun to make every game a kinda clone of it.


People are idiots with no common sense and no taste, and have no idea how to be smart shoppers or responsible consumers.


Enjoy your new found knowledge!

The last time Nintendo was very relevant in the gaming world was during NES and SNES, Wii did outsold PS3 and 360 but it doesn't even have any decent games lol to be taken seriously.

Nintendo hasn't won in over 2 decades. Sony won with PS1 and PS2 and has PS3 tied with 360.

ps2 despite being inferior technologically was no where near the gap that the wii has with the 360/ps3. A lot of multiplat games were released on ps2 and the original xbox and sometimes gamecube, and unlike the wii, the ps2 has a devastatingly awesome library of games that will go down in history as one of, if not the best in the history of console gaming.

Price point had a huge impact this year. You talk about the competition but don't forget that Nintendo outsold themselves in as much as they shifted far more of their cheaper, older console than their new one since launch.
