Does Nintendo consider other consoles to be competition? Does Nintendo even consider a competition to exist? What makes people compare consoles is competition. The Wii was never brought up much during these, yet the Wii managed to have the most hardware and software sales, among the largest variety of players. I think Nintendo's competition is honestly themselves. Sony seems to want to compete with PCs this generation...where does that leave Microsoft?

With 3DS, they literally had no competition except in Japan. And not even that much there, honestly. Then it flopped. They had a cushion to slash the price because the Vita was still 6 months off and not very public. With the Wii U, PS360 ARE competition, whether Nintendo admits it or not. They banked on a nearly year long headstart and the casual market for next-gen and failed (so far), with the lack of ready to go games and such.

PS4 and new XBOX are coming and they WILL be competition. XBOX 360 is probably dead as soon as soon as the new XBOX gets official, but Sony needs the PS3 to sale more, so it will see more releases for awhile after PS4 launches (ala PS1 and PS2).

Why does this change from the Wii? Nintendo didn't use the Wii to compete with the other two, they did their own thing with it. The Wii U is doing the same thing...its own thing. Only thing different which has been proven is that Nintendo wanted more third party support with the Wii U, (and they've gotten it) and wanting more core games (they've also gotten that as well).

nintendo does competes against sony and microsoft by doing their own thing. their controllers and cheap price are its competive advantage that they use to compete. with out that then they don't have anything over sony and microscoft.
