Its not fun being on the side that everyones sniping at is it?
Nintendo fans got that for two generations solid with the n64 and gamecube. The loserkids crapping on about Nintendo should just just give up on hardware... just because sega did the same.
The vita needs its own games. Games that make vita ownership necessary. Sony has a buoyant product with the ps3. They just need to quit imitating others and do their own thing. Everybody is trying to imitate one or two styles of game, and there isn't a whole lot of choice out there anymore. I know I'd kill for more collectathon platformers, and old school resi survival horror game... complete with prerendered rooms, fixed camera angles etc etc.
Sony's offerings this E3 were arguably more exciting than microsofts.
I don't think any games company bar Nintendo gets this. Cater for those who aren't being catered to.
I'm happy with the same Nintendo+Sony+PC combo that I've rocked since N64 and PS1. I've always gotten to play every game I wanted to.
Sony aren't going anywhere. But I'm also not expecting new sony or microsoft consoles as soon as everyone else is expecting them. Sony need time to prepare a launch lineup... and Microsoft need to work on testing something that won't break en masse.
I made an xbox 360 magazine editor look like a moron on twitter for pointing out this obvious fact. He claimed that he'll be playing a new xbox by christmas 2013.
