E3 is going to be hilarious. If you didn't accept Wii what on Earth makes you think you will accept the next Xbox? And before you say "normal controller" MS has shoehorned Kinect in every game at every chance it got and it is only going to get worse from here. Kinect will be a standard and every company under the sun will force it in the game whenever they can think to just to justify the fact it exists.

The media, you Nintendo haters, analysts, some big publishers (though not all) have such high hopes on these new systems they can only disappoint. Then when they get off to bad starts due to being more expensive and the games not selling because they will be more expensive what do you think is going to happen? They will go to the system which has had the head start and has the better library. The better games for these new systems won't show up for at least a year. 3DS didn't fair well. Vita still hasn't picked up. Wii U has a sluggish start and you seriously think these others will do much better?

Its obvious EA are so hyped for this but their excitement will crumble overnight when they see the others won't fair well. And the others will actually have to sell more units due to being more expensive. Good luck with that.

This time next year every company outside Japan (since its obvious Japanese support will be good in the long haul) will be BEGGING Nintendo to take them back.
Bethesda not convinced people will buy the next xbox and PS4: your install base always starts at zero

While I agree with some of your points, its never good to come out with doom and gloom for any system. Remember, this is an industry, it goes much further then console companies and publishers. Competition is good but so are open minds and level heads.

It's not different. If the PS4 turns out to be not worth my money then I won't buy it. The Wii wasn't worth my money so I didn't buy it. If the WiiU picks up I'll get one and I'll play the Wii gems on it. If it bombs, then I'll have to resort to emulation to play Xenoblade.

Nobody's arguing otherwise. Only that the difference will be about as stark as the PS2 to Xbox, versus Wii to 360 that the trolls seem to think is coming.
Gaming is like a pair of boobs - Sony and Microsoft fight over whos boobs look more realistic, while Nintendo is about having fun with them - Walkiethrougie

even though MS is shoehorning in Kinect as hard as they can, in most titles it's used for nothing more than a gimmick that has no effect on gameplay

so yeah, I'll keep my normal controller, kthx
Your madness! How it shines like a beacon!
