A perfect example of why so many GAF posts like this have their head up their own ass. It's Ricky Bobby, if you're not first you're last bullshit. Failures, iterations and buyouts are normal parts of business and growth. Market leading isn't easy and there's only one top spot. There is a specific cycle to innovation, first to market, growth phase, buyouts, few left standing etc. It's as old as the hills. Anyhow keep your hate boner for MS, it's not going to affect my enjoyment of their Xbox/PC ecosystem nor my enjoyment of Ninty's for that matter. Plenty of money and games to be made vying for the top spot or being the underdog.
That wall of text would be impressive if only because it fails to take into account the post I’m replying to.
