That was interesting, even though it was really old and it would be cool to see and updated version with it going against Xbox and the Next-Gen consoles.

Cartridges are better in my opinion because there is zero load time. And Sony is bland too me. Nintendo has much better games. I prefer the LoZ series over The PlayStation 1 & 2. I got a PS2 and now all it does is collects dust, yet i still play games on my SNES.

Nintendo is amazing and seem to defy all logic for staying around. After having a lack of new technology with their 64 with its cartridge based system they still seemed to put up a decent fight. When the GameCube came out it had a much worse spec than the competition. Now with the Wii they have produced a console that is cheap and innovative (still worse spec) which means that more people will buy their console meaning they will get more games sales

That was cool, though I saw something similar to this somewhere. The biggest mistake of Nintendo.

Wow, this glorified the Playstation. I felt like I was being brainwashed into it since I`m such a Playstation hater. Still a great video, It`s nice for us video game geeks to better understand our history.

To be fair, Nintendo did have a point that having Sony retain all rights to the disc drive technology wasn`t a wise business decision. I support Nintendo on pulling out of the Sony deal.

Summary, in case u don`t feel like watching all of it:

Me and my dad invented video games in 1989 when we realized he was too lazy to throw a baseball.
The rest is history.

I loved my Play Station. Crash Bandicoot was actually awesome. Then I had my PS2, that thing rocked. And lived for years. Still around here somewhere. But then PS3 just didn`t do it for me. Too expensive, not good enough. The 360 was cheaper and had a better games line-up. Sorry Sony, but you lost the magic. Great video, though. Interesting.

I jumped ship on Sony last Gen and play just pretty much on the Xbox now but that was a cool id about the Playstation came about. I didn`t know about the whole Nintendo backstabbing thing.

An important thing to note, Will the consoles always battle each other out, all a Console is, is a snapshot of the most powerfull gaming PC out at the moment.

No console rivals PCs.

Is it just me or does every video game company say their products revolutionised the gaming market?

Nintendo does with tetris, the wii, and probably other stuff (which I think is true)

Sony does with it`s playstation...

I don`t know if Microsoft does though, although, they have Bill Gates there, so I suppose that makes them win anyway. :3

HA.

The Nintendo Philips thing:
http://blog.wired.com/games/2008/03/game...

Just to show how much it FAAAAILLED, excellent video above.

Nintendo`s games are always the same thing over and over again, no real inovation (On the games) Always allways the same thing.

Sony receiving a HUGE boost in sales in the past year after a shacky start.

Bow to your masters, nitendo is going down.

Sega will be avanged!
