Nintendo starts out with kick a$$ games making sony systems not sell as much. Then in the future in terms oflong term basis. Sony always ends up winning bevause they save there better games for down the stretch. P.s. This is just my opinion im not saying this is how it went. Im just going off of my knowledge that i have. So please hold the insults

Hmm... Well, I'll take the bait.

So when did Sony end up beating Nintendo in the long-run?
As far as I know, the DS sales are still above PSP.

In his dreams. Ps1 and ps2 were clear winners, they didn't come from behind. Wii, ds and 3 ds beat Sony pretty bad. It's never happened where Sony was behind and came out on top.

It's hard to hold the insults when you try to make statements with limited knowledge and obvious bias.

And so the insults begin haha. All i was saying was in terms of games don't usually wins in the long run. I'm not talking about consoles for crying out loud. I can remember psp having crappy games at the beginning but then in the long run i always ended up saying sony was better at the end. Its nothing against nintendo or xbox its just how i saw it. Pretty much to sum it all up sony produces better quality games than the otber systems for a longer period of time.

who insulted you? saying you're wrong is not a insult, it's just a fact. Sony has never came from behind in hardware, not once.

I think hes talking about software in that sony releases better games towards the end of the consoles life.

Actually...that's never happened.

PS1 vs N64
Sony started out relatively strong, thanks largely to its cheap price ($100 less than the Saturn) and its use of CDs. However, the Saturn was a competitor in these early years, and the SNES still managed to sell over 10 million units, despite being a whole generation behind. When Nintendo announced the Nintendo 64 would only be $199, with the graphics it had, everybody expected Nintendo to re-capture the market. Sony responded with a price drop to $149, which, combined with "hidden costs" of the N64 (such as games that were about $30 more than their PS1 counterparts), lead the PS1 to dominate the market. For those of you noticing the parallels to the 3DS-Vita battle, you're not alone.

PS2 vs. GCN
Here, Sony started out extremely strong, and pretty much dominated Nintendo throughout the generation. By the time 2006 came around, the PS2 had sold 100 million units, while the GameCube had only sold 20. The PS2 would sell 50 million more after this. The GameCube? 2 million.

PSP vs. DS
Nintendo and Sony pretty much started out on even footing. Then, in late-2005 and early-2006, DS sales skyrocketed (largely thanks to games like Pokemon), while the PSP, facing a shortage of games (thanks to piracy) and rather high-priced, started to falter. The PSP-Go didn't help anything.

Wii vs PS3
The closest to the scenario to the one you're describing. Unfortunately, the PS3 hasn't caught up to the Wii, and from the looks of things, I'm beginning to doubt that it will. After all, the PS4 is coming. There's always the chance the PS3 will be like the PS2 and outsell its successor for years and years, but is this really what we want?

3DS vs. Vita
Pretty much the same as the PS1 vs. N64, except with Nintendo and Sony swapped and "$70 games" replaced with "$90 memory cards".
