Just sees to me that the media are just reporting doom and gloom on the console without any real basis. This in turn just puts of people buying the console and with so much wide spread hate it makes the situation look far worse than it is. People always go on about their lack of third party support, but really when has Nintendo ever been about third party games? I for one have only ever bought Nintendo games on Nintendo consoles, third party games on their consoles just does not interest me in the slightest, even if they're highly reviewed.... I just do not care. It is the same for every single person I know who has ever owned a Nintendo console, you're only interested in their products.
I'm a PC gamer and I own an Xbox One and PS4, yet there is nothing on either platform that excites me, I cannot name a single game for the PS4 that I care about that is exclusive. The Xbox One has Gears of War, Halo and Forza, but tbh the last Gears of War I liked was the first one on PC, Halo I haven't cared about since the first one and Forza needs to improve their menu design badly. When I think about Sony... like what is their identity at this point? Apart from MGS4 I just couldn't give a shit about the PS3, Socom should have been a big highlight, but they failed to deliver on that. Sony was always about Third Party, they lost their crown with the PS3...
For me when I look at the Wii U.. Pikmin 3, WW HD, Super Mario 3D world and the upcoming MK8 and SSB game I can already think of way more games I care about that Xbox One and PS4 combined. All Nintendo have to do is show Zelda, show the first proper fully 3D Mario and then prove they can create new IPs again and they have my money!
If I'm going to play third party games I will choose PC these days, the PS4 and Xbox One are basically just under powered PCs. So far I've not seen either of them perform and tbh it looks like we'll have nothing for the rest of 2014. Nintendo had their rough post launch year with the Wii U, this is the year they show us why it is worth it, so I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. The 3DS had the same post launch rough year, it was only 2013 when the 3DS actually became worthwhile and 2014 is that year for the Wii U.
The only thing I wish'd Nintendo would do is sort out their stupid account stuff and how purchases are console bound.
