Not exactly. Nintendo's rivalry with major competitor Sega was a part of why the company became such a heavyweight. Of course said rivalry also contributed to the end of Sega systems. To each their own. The current big three cater to different gamer factions, and their products dominate various industries. It doesn't really matter who makes the first "next-gen" system. What matters is who makes the first <span style="text-decoration:underline">successful</span> next-gen. The Wii U thus far has sold poorly, and based on public sentiment, it appears the PS4 is set to outdo the maligned XBox One. Microsoft knows they rushed their hand a bit and made irreparable mistakes; their next step is to learn from them.
Yeah you're right, and from the looks of it the line up will be like this until Nintendo starts releasing games for the Wii U. It will be PS4, XBox One, and then Wii U. I will most likely get a Wii U only for Zelda, that is the new one. On the Handheld side Nintendo dominates it because there is no real competition. The PS Vita is a fail and Sony still haven't faced that fact and still trying to get it sold with the PS4. Nintendo is known to try to make something new which does work but in some cases it doesn't. I really think the reason why the Wii U isn't selling as well as others is because people think it's a Wii add-on and the poor third party support.
