GameCube have pressure sensitive shoulder button but too bad it was a flop compare to its competitors even though it was the only one to make profit

To be fair while we don't always agree with it Nintendo does at least try to innovate. They were the first of the 3 to add shoulder buttons, analogue sticks, rumble, trigger buttons, motion controls, touch screens. However, they do focus a little too much on the innovation. That's not to say the others haven't done a bit, but even looking at PS2/PS3/PS4 and Xbox/360/One, it's clear Sony and Microsoft just care about power and churn out the bare minimum of innovation.

There's room for both and a balance would be perfect.


That's not true, about MS and Sony, they've also innovated a lot. Take this gen for example, XB1 has rumble triggers, HDMI input so it can switch between TV and games, Kinect is very innovative, and they've innovated a lot with Xbox Live (achievements, universal friends list, party chat etc). They had the first console with a HDD, first console to play custom soundtracks.

PS4 is the first console to have remote play, all PS4 games except for camera ones can be played Vita. It's the first console to have a streaming service. First console with a share button, live streaming, integrated DVR, the ability to play and take control of your friends games from your house. They had the first console to have full backwards compatibility, DVD playback, dual analogue sticks etc. The eyetoy was innovative as well.

Nintendo innovates with hardware, specifically the controller, Sony and MS tend to innovate with software.




-HDMI input doesn't matter, as every single TV has close to 9 HDMI slots now. You can't seriously be this lazy, that pressing Input on your remote is the hardest thing ever.

-Kinect 2.0 still sucks. We have one in our dev room, and it's garbage. It's unresponsive and only good as a microphone.. which most of us don't even want on. Ever.

-Not every game can be streamed to the Vita, Sony has announced this already.

-It's no longer the only one to have a share button, as the Wii U was able to do this since last
month. It can post screenshots from both screens to all social media websites with three clicks. Technically that means Nintendo is the first one to do it thanks to the headstart, regardles sif it was stolen tech or not.

-Xbox One and PS4 both do live streaming

-You're right about everything else though, twin sticks, eyetoy, DVR

My brand new sony tv only has 4 hdmi slots. PS3 and PS4 will take up two, Wiiu and X1 take up the other. So the X1 hdmi in and out is actually important for me
