History has shown a company's third gaming console is usually doomed to not be very successful, especially compared to the previous two. I don't see M$ avoiding this problem at all.

MSFT had a terrible reveal, coupled with a PR nightmare. To their credit, however, they've been actively trying to patch things up. It's way too early to say who's going to succeed or fail, even going by online polls/preorders. It's going to be an interesting generation, that's for sure.

Indeed. We don't know how much of a recovery Wii U will make when its upcoming big releases arrive, we don't know how bad M$'s **** up will hit them and if their backtracking will help much, we don't know if they'll still dominate in the US, or if Sony really is in as good a position as they seem. Should be interesting.

Are you implying the N64 wasn't successful? Because it absolutely was.

Also..

Nintendo's 3rd Concole, N64 = 33 million units worldwide
Nintendo's 4th Console, Gamecube = 22 million units worldwide

Playstation One = 102 million in 12 years
Playstation 3 = 80 million in 7 years

Also of note, the PS3 and Xbox 360 (MS's 2nd console) are EQUAL in sales.
