Ok so what if Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo put aside their differences, pooled their resources and made one defining console. For the sake of the arguement lets call it the NinteXstation. Other possibilities are; Playstation wii60, wii-box... arg the names not important. Ok so this console becomes the one and only, therefore all games play on it. They have 100% of the audience and therefore 100% of the profits all be it now there are a lot more people to split profits with. A console that could Play Mario, Metal gear and Halo. I know, it sounds nice. Imagine a console that literally had something for everyone. The fun novelty stuff of the wii, the awesome online features of the 360, the blu ray quality and great game series of playstation. It does sound pretty sweet but would this actually be a good thing? Now from a capitalist point of view I suppose it wouldn't be. Perhaps we only get good games due to the fact that the consoles are in constant competetion with eachother. If theres only one console then perhaps the game designers would become lazy. However the games I suppose would be in competetion with eachother to make sales but that doesn't seem as much of a big deal as an actual format competing. Also since most companies are capitalist minded another console would probably arise to compete with this collaborative console. Perhaps Sega will see an openeing to make a come back or something..... Flawed though the idea maybe I'd like to know what peoples thoughts are on this. I've made it a poll just to help us get some sort of figure going. So are you for this Console Collaboration or is variety the spice of life? Oh and I voted No, by the way. As nice an idea as it is I just can't see it working.
