Eighth Console War Shaping up Like Sixth

 

 

Cordova, TN; January 12, in the year of our Lord 2015--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is taking a good, long, hard, look at the way things are shaping up in the eighth home console video game war. We are currently in the Playstation 4 (PS4) versus the Xbox One versus the Wii U versus the OUYA. It is still early in this console generation war. As of the moment this article was written we are noticing some similarities to the sixth home console video game war. Those systems were the Playstation 2, Xbox, Gamecube, and Dreamcast. Please note that Sega has stopped making home console video game machines. Sega is now a third party developer only. OUYA has stepped into their place.

We should probably start with a little education on the home console wars. We are not going to list every single system. Just the major ones that we have knowledge of. The first home console war involved the Odyssey vs Pong. Then the second was Atari 2600 vs Coleco Vision vs Intellivision. The third one was the Atari 7600 vs the NES (8-bit) vs the Sega Master System. The fourth one was the Super NES vs the Sega Genesis (also Sega CD) vs the Turbografx-16 (also Turboduo). The fifth one was the Playstation vs Atari Jaguar vs Sega Saturn vs Nintendo 64. The sixth one was the Playstation 2 vs Xbox vs Dreamcast vs Gamecube. The seventh one was the Playstation 3 vs Xbox 360 vs Wii. The current and eighth one is the Playstation 4 vs Xbox One vs Wii U vs OUYA.

The Playstation 2 dominated the Xbox and Gamecube. The Dreamcast was in a lack luster far away fourth. The only difference right now is the OUYA is not made by Sega. The Playstation 4 is in the world wide leader, with the Xbox One in second, the Wii U in third, and the OUYA so far back in last that they are barely worth a mention. Will this trend continue? Will Sony continue to dominate Microsoft and Nintendo? Nintendo dominated in the seventh home console generation war. Can they climb up to where Microsoft is? We do not have answers to these questions. We will just need to wait and see. Right now it looks like Sony will finish first world wide, Microsoft will finish second, Nintendo third, and the OUYA in dismal last place. An interesting item of note is Microsoft is continuing to dominate both Sony and Nintendo in the United States of America. Just like they did in the last home console generation war. Microsoft has the USA locked down tight. If they want to progress they need to make progress in other regions.


God bless,
