I have never been a Xbox Fan, but as Ben Kuchera put it: "This isn't a PR
fight, it's straight up murder." And Microsoft is clearly not capable of proper damage control...
I don't know if I'm willing to get a PS4 yet, as I have a pretty powerful PC, and I have not seen nearly enough exclusives, to justify a new console. Maybe in a few years, with more FinalFantasy and other nice stuff, but as far as the launch goes: I think I will sit this one out.
But while I am here, maybe someone can help me/explain something to me:
Clearly, Nintendo was not really aggressive at this years E3. And many reporters and fans are actually really grumpy about that (and of course, the 17 year old "Nintendo should stop making Consoles!!1!" Discussion is coming back up).
But for me, this actually seems like a better strategic move: Even if they had dropped a Mario and Zelda (or maybe Metroid) "Double Bomb" for the WiiU, there is no way that they could have created more banter, than the two new consoles.
So isn't it smarter for them, to keep it low, announce some new (pretty cool btw) games, and bring out the big guns during the next Gamescom or any other event, when there isn't quite as much fuzz about the competition? Or does this just make sense in my head? ;)
