This move was considered a threat to Microsoft’s CEOBill Gates and this made Microsoft branch out from Windows software to video games. In 2001, Microsoft released Xbox. It was a loss but it secured a huge spot for Microsoft in the video games industry.Nintendo and PlayStation decided to focus their attention on portable video games. So Nintendo released Nintendo DS with touchscreen while PlayStation released PSP, which has such great graphics that you could watch movies on the device. Both actually did well in the market but they didn’t beat the sales of the home consoles.
By November 2005, Microsoft made a comeback with Xbox 360 while PlayStation released PS3 shortly after. PS3 was more expensive because it integrated Blu-ray and Wi-Fi Technologies.In 2006, Nintendo finally made a comeback with Nintendo Wii. Critics expected it to fail but it marked the start of another unique invention in video gaming.
