Nintendo History Repeats Itself | PS3Blog.net
Next, never has a system sold well that was less powerful than what came out before it. Never. Ever. Not once. In fact, one could argue it is retarded that a company would release a system that offers less than what came about before. Well, guess what boys and girls, that’s exactly what the Revolution is. Even Nintendo says “it’s less powerful than the PS3.” Here is an exact quote:
