Is PS4 Or Xbox One More Worried About Nintendo's New NX?
We're several years into a new generation and yet, Nintendo is looking to break up the party with a fresh offering.
We've been hearing about the new "NX" console for some time and ever since it was announced, I wondered: Will the Nintendo system be more of a concern to Microsoft or Sony? Or neither?
On the one hand, maybe Nintendo is doing this the right way; they're going to put out a console after the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have been on the market for some years. This way, maybe Ninty can tap into a little boredom on the part of gamers who leapt aboard the next-gen bandwagon back in 2013. There will be plenty of hype surrounding whatever this NX turns out to be, though. Yeah, the market can bear three consoles (maybe), but you have to assume that NX could steal interest away from the competitors.
Then again, maybe we're just saying Nintendo is no longer targeting the same demographic. Maybe they just don't care what Sony or Microsoft does or thinks and they live in their own little Nintendo world. And consequently, Sony and Microsoft don't care what Nintendo does, either, and NX won't affect PS4 or Xbox One either way. Not so sure about that, though.
What say you?
