Nintendo vs Sega is the only console war worth following.

Had a Street Fighter signature for four years, but Crapcom doesn't deserve such recognition anymore.

I would be fine only having 2 consoles on the market. It wouldn't be as hard to play everything.

If I support the game company, then I won't be supporting the blank DVD business.

I think Sega could get away with mass producing the RingEdge if push came to shove.

One of the reasons why Bayonetta 2 is ending up on the Wii U in the first place is because Sega has been tightening up their belts, and focusing on a smaller number of their core franchises (especially when neither Sony nor Microsoft would give Platinum the time of day to fund a sequel). Given that fact, I seriously doubt Sega would risk going a complete 180 now and try their hand at hardware again any time soon.

Back on topic: I wouldn't be surprised if Apple, seeing how much of the handheld gaming pie they've already got on their hands, tried their luck to tangle with the big boys for the main console gaming market.

Ouya specifically shot themselves in the foot by scamming tons of people on Kickstarter. I don't see them as a true competitor in the market. I don't even know who the others are. Steambox? Is that thing real?
