So will Nintendo have a 2-3 year lead over Sony again?

I was impressed by the PS4, I really was. But all that technology has a hefty price, and from the rumors going around, the PS4 won't me much cheaper, if at all than the original PS3.

Last gen, that pretty much gave Microsoft and Nintendo a 2 year jump start on Sony, because no one had $500 to slap down for a video game console. Finally when Sony revised the console did sales pick up.

We don't know anything about Microsoft yet, so I can't say anything regarding them, but do you think the PS4's hefty price tag will give them another 2 year lag?

Oh yeah also: Great, a touchpad on the controller, another Sony innovation that will fail to succeed in the market.

The PS4 price point will decide that. If it's near $500? Yeah, it won't sell for a few years...

It's pretty much how I feel about the Vita. A friend owns one and it really is a beautiful piece of hardware. But there's no real value for the price point. I'd imagine it'll be the same with PS4.

Additionally, if people couldn't lay out $500 for a console pre-2008, there's no chance now.

It has the potential to be even worse this time around. Sony didn't announce price but I'm guessing it's going to be really high. The rumors about the 720 is that it's even more powerful then the PS4. There's no way systems at a high price will sell in the economy right now, especially if they launch with as little as their predecessors did. We'll see what happens though as nobody can predict.

The WiiU is the slowest selling console in 8 years. It won't take much for the PS4 to overtake it.

The Wii U is selling about the same as the DS when it first came out! The DS is now the best selling console of ALL TIME!

Comparing apples to oranges. Consoles to portables. Nintendo only has one half-hearted competitor to worry about in the portable world. They've got a monopoly going on in portables. Nothing new.

Just like the 360 and PS3. Your point?
