Although many gamers have multiple current generation consoles, the trend of financial analysts counting the Wii U out because Microsoft and Sony will release more powerful systems is shortsighted. Who says gamers can’t own a Wii U AND a PS4, or a Wii U and a Xbox 720. I’ve never put much stock into what financial analysts say, especially Michael Pachter, but at this point it seems like hes grasping for straws. Not only has he announced the Wii U will sell 45 Million units in its lifetime, he also states Microsoft and Sony will sell more because they will have “better” systems. Last time I checked, the “better” system seldom finishes first.
With the Wii U already out and having moderate success. Sony, Microsoft, Nvidia, and Valve, are gearing up to bring out their new systems to the marketplace in 2013 & 2014.

This is a rare occasion in the gaming industry were five major console manufactures will be competing against each other at the same time. However, five choices of where to spend your money might be too much for some gamers, and one of these consoles will likely not see a successor due to lack of sales. Playeressence’s Furious Francis takes a look at what each console offers and who he thinks will not make it out of next generation.
