First off I just want to say that this is completely hypothetical.


But how would you feel if Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony came together to make an Ultimate game system.?
Meaning that all games would go to a one platform system.

would this be a great thing for the gaming world? or something something completely horrible.!?

everyone have fun and discuss!

no flames please.

It'd limit the fanboyism, that's for sure.
Unfortunately, Microsoft would insist on crafting it's final design to be inferior to spec (the 360 has a RAM bottleneck from hell) and 45% of the units would crash permanently the instant you put in a good game, and none of the previous console's games would work.
Nintendo would insist on flooding it with worthless mascot titles and would implement a whackadoo controller design that, in it's innovation, alienates the user.
Sony would insist on making pimp second-party mascot games, but would take too long between each release, and they'd give you free internet, assuming MS isn't already charging you out the ass for it.


In any case, Squeenix would still be remaking FF1 and 2 for it.

I think that it would be a horrible thing, because without competition, "SoNinSoft" can get away with BS-ing the consumers and they'll have to put up with it. Console gamers will end up switching to PC gaming, which means the whole one console shenanigans will end up being most beneficial to Microsoft... That is, unless Apple decides to take Macs beyond Garage Band, iMovie, and Photoshop... Or if some genius makes Linux user friendly enough that someone, who at the very most can plug in a toaster, can actually use Linux...

there was a system like this... i saw it E3 03... it was called the Phantom.
It was a sole console where you would download the games onto the system itself.

It died in feb 06 when basically... no one gave a shit.

in my opinion this is the next wave for next gen consoles, but this one was
waaaaaay before it's time. Eventually we will get there but for now greed is king.

when the time is right........ oh yes.

they definitely will.

but for now such companies like EA knows there's a ton of money to be
made for a good long while in this format style.

I dont that would ever happen because they wouldn't get pass naming the system: "NinSoSoft" or "SoNinSoft" or "SoftSoNin" or "SoSoftNin" or "NinSoftSo" or "SoftNinSo" eventually they will go to war about naming it.

Well, companies sure would sound stupid by that time.
'Ubi Enix' and such would suck with games. It's all because of that 'Merging' companies. Well, they have no choice, actually. >_>

But, I don't think that there would be a perfect console for us to play for a lifetime.
I think, that if there should be a perfect console, then wouldn't be the PC stand for it as a contestant? I mean, the PC originally formed the good graphics for gamings.
Also, the PC can have the smoothest gameplay, if your Memory should be good enough for the game. The real honest problem would be of how would it cost. Basically, the PC isn't just fit to be the perfect because of it's other uses ><
Meh, I said too many pointless ideas.... ><

Prices of consoles are dropping due to the competition between Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony. So if they'd make a console together, it'd be REALLY expensive. So I wouldn't even get to buy it. But people already said that.

Ok, one console with all cool features of all consoles combined would be awesome. It's a hard choice for me to choose between Sony and Nintendo. Sony has got amazing graphics, nice games, but is really expensive. Nintendo has got terrible graphics, awesome gameplay, and cool games to choose from.
So if you have a console that could be like Wii and PS3 in one, then it'd be so cool.
On the other hand, I'd never buy a 360, so there's no need for Microsoft to be in this console thing.

I also kind of like the fact that they're all so different, it's nice to have a choice when buying a console.

I think in the end I'd not like having one uber console. So let things just stay the way they are and praise competition for it's awesomeness.

I say no way, if all the game consoles combined the consoles and game prices would be even higher then they are now cause there would be no competition, they could charge what ever amount they wanted.

kinda wierd in the working together part actually: Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo making a console together, it might be nice, because people won't be comparing stuffs again. The bad thing now, is that it would be terribly expensive, imagine the ultimate gaming machine from these big companies. It would be suprising if this actually happens :w00t:. But for now, i think it's quite impossible
