So that further proves there was/is a transitional period between what consumers think is the best console for them, which also happen to be the "core" consumers.

Some people make purchasing decisions in store. I've been keeping up with all of the gaming news, and I almost impulse bought an Xbox One, but then I decided it was best to just buy more Wii U games.

What are you even talking about?

"Some people make purchasing decisions in store"

I'm pretty sure less than 1% of all PS4 or Xbox One owners made a $400-500 "impulse" buy in the store. I'm sure they planned and thought it out well in advance.

That's why it's important to know who the target consumer is. Nintendo is my first choice, but I can accept Microsoft as an equal choice, based on my preference. That's where purchasing decisions are made without much, if any insight.

If there are people who go in store and can't decide between an Xbox One, Wii U, or PS4, then that means the industry is successful.

Sony at least knows how to successfully make their customers feel like they're getting a deal. Just to reiterate, nothing is free if you pay for it.

Marketing is a huge problem. The original Wii was practically self-explanatory with just a video of someone using it. In comparison, there's still a huge problem with people thinking the Wii U is just the controller and/or an accessory for the original Wii (the sheer number of accessories that are available for the Wii came back to bite Nintendo in the rear, hard). They're finally addressing that somewhat with the last batch of commercials, but Nintendo is still fighting an uphill battle for proper marketing.
