Hardly, the people playing the vast majority of releases on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 aren't going to suddenly switch to things like Wii Sports, Wii Play, Wii Music, Wii Fit, Wii Party, etc. You'll also never see something like Deca Sports or Carnival Games being some of the best performing 3rd party releases for either developer.
Leo - you are in denial. If 360/PS3 game is going so well, you would not see month after month of decline, you would not see increased subscription and DLC costs (which you ignored in your rebuttal) you would not see MS and Sony suddenly needing to release new control methods, you would not see the continuing massive copying of Nintendo software by both 3rd and 2nd and 1rst parties on 360 and PS3.
Nintendo has a far more diversified software lineup that appeals to peopl of all ages and genders, and etc. Sony and MS target the HARDCOAR gamer - this is gaming 101 - shooters, M rated, story driven 'EPIC!' blah blah
Hardcore games ARE suddenly switching on 360/PS3 Leo - because they have been buying games like Wii Sports, Wii Play, Wii Fit, Wii Music all along - lol, this board is proof of that! And so is this :
Everything is great, layoffs are rampant, the game industry is contracting, major publishers are going wildly boom and bust, huge budget games such as Alan Wake are flopping, game studios and talents are being 'stolen' and taken and traded, investors are cooling on the game industry, and Sony and MS are BOTH releasing NEW CONTROLLERS in the SAME HOLIDAY -
And you say HD gaming is just fine - totally laughable.
By the way, having discussion on this board in not a problem. Good grief. -David
Also Blue Monkey - huh, ever heard of cartridge production costs?
