Nintendo is again heading in the direction that seems to be the "Lonely Left Field". Mobile gaming is a fad, a horrible, costly and step backwards fad. Banking on mobile gaming is like banking on the tablet market to replace the desktop. Doesn't work, won't work, move on.
Sony is following what MS started in terms of bridging the PC/Console divide, albiet both in the wrong way. Being said, Sony has a massively larger AAA base and from what reports indicate, pulls it off leeps and bounds beyond MS.
Microsoft is simply rinse repeating what they did with the 360. But this time around, they are touting Scorpio as a true next gen killer. As if to say that the hardware they currently have is tapped out, and they need a stronger system to work with, because their talent pool and quality is just that massive. If you believe that, I have a bridge in France I want to sell you.
At the end of the day it all muddles down to Sony and MS bidding for your bucks on the holidayz, while simply delivering recycled services you don't need and are simply trendy, not revolutionary. If we wanna talk big about gaming and quality, let's wait until at least year 6, when the hardware is finally properly supported by next gen software.
As the old saying goes, A fancy smanshy hardware rig does not produce quality, without the bleeding edge software to be powered by it. It would be like being handed a GTX 1060 in 2012. Sure it's the highest end, but is the software to utilize it fully there?
In short, what are they all doing wrong? NOT moving onto true next hen extensability such as proprietary upgradable hardware. Not, diy type stuff, but bring your console in, MS sponsored spots retrofit a new cpu, ram, gpu into it, and your back gaming on a more powerfull console with less downtime, more options, and far less money spent by you, and by costly hardware manufacturing just for chasis', dvd drives, packaging, etc...
