I was pleasantly shocked to see a relatively unbiased, logical look at something on The Motley Fool.

ALL games should have a Single Player mode. I can always guarantee I want to play when I turn on my system. I can't guarantee others will at the same time.

So we're back to sales don't matter?

Nice, can we get more topics like these please;

Why 720p is actually better than 1080p and 4k
Why $500 is actually cheaper than $400
Why the Kinect is camera is essential for voice commands
Why 60fps is meaningless to the visually impared
Why I was adopted

the article doesn't say sales don't matter it says that sales for Microsoft right now isn't as urgent as it is for sony and Nintendo. Microsoft can afford to spread their console sales over a longer period of time. Sony and Nintendo need all they can get right now.

Because you hid the remote too many times. That tend to have a negative effect on adults.

The article makes no sense...you can't compare 2 completely different markets.

If the case in consoles was wait and see 360 would have gotten crushed last gen because there was 100m+ ps2 users Sony could relly on. The 360 crushed the ps3 early on which lead ms to gain a huge market share last gen. People that say an early lead doesn't matter are delusional. An early lead leads developers to change exclusivity, look at the FF series. Which sway many people to buy one console or the other. Ps3 only came back because they had to bend over backwards to get people to buy it. And in the US Sony never caught up to ms because the damage was done.

The one will have an uphill battle this entire generation, but that's a good thing because it means they will come out swinging next gen like the ps4. They won't be taking consumers for granted. I am just hoping Sony doesn't let this gen get to their head like ps2 did.
