Console war winners and losers?

Jeremy Parish over at 1up has an interesting editorial
on the whole "console war" thing. He points out that while MS has moved ahead of Nintendo in terms of market share they are losing money on the Xbox and Xbox 360 while Nintendo is still making money. It's a nice argument and it's certainly pertinent to the current situation but he does miss one big point. With Nintendo falling behind in the market it makes third party game developers less likely to develop games for the system which decreases longer term sales. We all know that Nintendo has a built in audience but without a lot of new games you aren't going to sell a lot of consoles.
