Forget asinine console wars and nonsensical company loyalties for a second — both current-next-gen consoles are selling quite well, and that's good news for anyone who likes video games at all. As the installed base — that's marketing talk for "number of people" — for each console grows, big third-party publishers will feel more comfortable greenlighting next-gen games. Small developers will have the flexibility to experiment more. Development studios won't have to worry as much about going "cross-gen" and releasing their games for both current- and next-gen systems, which means we'll see more games that really take advantage of what these new machines can do. (More enemies! Higher resolutions! Better dog AI!)
So let's all take a moment to celebrate the good news that both of these consoles seem to be doing well. Let's hope that the Wii U picks up steam soon too. Healthy competition is healthiest for gamers.
