Why would they want to release a shitty gimmick?

You make it sound like companies taking another companies idea and improving on it is a bad thing, when in fact that that didn't happen in every different kind of marketing then everything we own would be shit.

Exactly, why would they do the same thing twice?

I make this bet on the condition that the Wii U sells well.

1 and a half years. The other two weren't expecting motion controls to be such a big hit, but they'd be more on the ball since they know Nintendo makes things that sell obscenely well.

Sony already has with the Vita. I think you can use the same functionality of the Wii U controller with the PS3 and PS Vita. The exact details I'm not sure of, but I think the PSP already does it too...? Correct me if I'm wrong. I know there's some connectivity of the PSP and PS3.

Microsoft'll probably do something different, possibly a second Kinect but with actual controllers with the camera. I dunno. They'll find something, I guess.

Easy. People ate up the Nintendo Wii. Whether or not you think it was a bad idea or nothing more than a gimmick doesn't matter, your money is in the minority not the majority. Video Games are a business so MONEY ALWAYS MATTERS. You don't think they won't do it again?

Well honestly probably not. Sony might do this, but I don't think Microsoft will. They won't to get everything they can out of the Kinect that they can get.

Tomorrow.
Sony and Microsoft have been working furiously under the radar ever since E3 and they're both releasing new consoles identical to the Wii U tomorrow.

If Nitendo ends up getting all the marketshare again I would say 6 months.

Who really gives a shit if one company copies another with a few gadgets down the line. All in all, these companies are advancing games for us gamers rapidly by doing so.

I mean, the Wii came out with motion sensors, Xbox removed the controller. The by-product of having competing game companies are that we get to chose our very favourites from each style of gaming.
