Console Wars 2013: Sony PS4 and its competitors

It's not just Microsoft and Nintendo looking to take down the PlayStation this year.

Nintendo Wii U
The opening shot in this generation's console wars came from Nintendo. Like the Wii before it, the Wii U plays with the conventions of console gaming, although the consensus thus far is that its bold experiments with touch-screen controllers and second-screen gaming are not as mainstream-friendly as the simple elegance of the original Wii and the Wii Sports.

Since its release in November 2012, the Wii U has been plagued by lower-than-expected sales and a lack of must-own games. But, at $299 (Basic Set) or $350 (Deluxe Set) it's likely to be the least expensive of the three new major game consoles, which should guarantee it a certain level of long-term market share.
