Still irrelevant. The PS1 and the PS2 are the best selling home consoles ever. Pretty good for a company that isn't willing to devote itself to the industry, I'd say.

Microsoft may very well go gaming only and ditch Windows on PC in favor of gaming machines that can run Windows 8.

Sony and Microsoft need to leave everything else (95%) of their companies to be profitable in gaming.. Now I've heard it all.

It all comes down to a specific goal a company has.
The difference is whether they're willing to devote all their time in resources into that goal. Until Microsoft or Sony go gaming only, Nintendo will always be the most relevant.

Yes, and I'm sure you have a much greater grasp on business than Sony and Microsoft both. Why haven't you talked with them, they might reward you with a job for all of this great wisdom?

And that is an opinion.

Back onto Topic. So people want Nintendo to cut prices so that the general public can treat the Wii U as a less important system... discuss

My last post still applies. You just said the same thing again. If this is how constructive this debate is gonna be, then I guess I'm leaving.

I think they could have a relaunch of sorts and avoid a price drop.

Make sure people know the Wii U is not related to the Wii, advertise it everywhere, and maybe even throw in a new color. Right now a lot of consumers are still confused, and it would be best to correct this confusion before the other consoles get off the ground.

Yes, Nintendo really does need to work on their advertising, not only to consumers but to other companies as well.

Actually, it's fact. If a company doesn't see itself as being relevant or profitable in a market they didn't care about in the first place, that gives them enough reasons to leave.

Sony isn't dead, but it will be if they continue on the same path they have been. Their struggles are connected with their PS brand, any way you look at it.

Yes, it's an undeniable fact that Sony is on a path of devastation, and you are the only person in the world intelligent enough to realize this.

I'm just glad you decide to share this infinite wisdom with our community. lol

Based on what you are saying then Disney should shut down DisneyLand as it is not profitable (from what I hear) and Disney is not devoted to being a Theme Park Company. Sometimes it is a good business decision to do something that loses you money (such as selling a console at loss while making profit on games, or having a theme park losing money while making profit on Movies)

It does apply, but PS3 and PS Vita weren't as successful as PS1 or 2. Those(PS3 and Vita) are the console they needed to be successful in order to have solid ground to move forward on.

A good analogy for this would be: Choosing to cross a broken bridge that will break under any ammount of pressure.

Television commercials. The last Ninty commercial I actually remember seeing was for Wii Fit, years ago. I've never seen a Wii U commercial. Playstation and Xbox commercials can be seen multiple times a day, particularely Xbox. Give something for people to think and talk about.

If they aren't losing or gaining anything from keeping Disneyland open, then it doesn't matter until they see that the park is no longer sustainable.

They're going to try and save whatever they can. That's a given, but sometimes it's just better to let go.
That's how I look at Sony regarding PS. Just let it go, and focus on TVs or whatever they really excel at.

Yes, Disney should close. Microsoft should sell off most of its company to be profitable. Sony will die soon.

All supported by hard, concrete facts, that have been manufactured from someone's intuition and business insight.

Do you think you could change your attitude a bit? You're being incredibly smarmy and rude to him. I know his arguments are pretty flawed, but that's no reason to act that way. If you're right, then you're right. You shouldn't have to degrade him on top of that. :)

But both Sony and Microsoft benefit from having their console brands.

What your definition of Sony is, will really determine whether I'm a fool or not.
So, what is your definition of Sony?
Also, I know very well what I'm talking about. It just means you don't understand.
It's one thing to call someone a fool for not knowing, and another for what you do not understand.

They don't have to sell out or close. Just apply what you have to where it makes sense.
Microsoft could easily convert their PC OS and software market to the gaming front. The difference would be that you would have to buy an Xbox instead of a PC in order to use Microsoft products, just like Nintendo.
