We are in 2004, one of the sweetest moments of the company that saw how its two bets were to enjoy the favor of the most recalcitrant gamers and, also, the millions of users who until then did not think of playing video games. However, it was almost the only successful machine of the time since Nintendo, still extending the life of its Nintendo 64, did not counterattack until 2002 when the GameCube was released: the first desktop console of the company with a (miniature) disc format and did not reach the numbers the Japanese expected. After not achieving goals with GameCube and chaining two successive generations in which the Japanese brand was not decisive (yes, influence), In 2006 the Japanese broke the rules with the Wii. : a console with controls that could reproduce movements and changed the rules of the game, exploding the sales charts and being the most successful machine of this seventh generation: at the end of its useful life, around 2012 (around ), those of Miyamoto reached extraordinary figures through more than 101 million units sold.
Although it was about 3DS (and all its layouts) that the Japanese were happy when it reached over 75 million units sold. This generation is when Miyamoto decides to change their definition of what success is: not the number of engines sold but the profitability they got from all their operations. The result was Xbox 360, a solid machine in its hardware., very competitive, cheaper than PS3 and supported by an industry that Sony was already doing well and had some resentment towards. With one week apart, between November 15 and 22, 2013. And the truth is that Sony benefited from the first day because its proposal was solid and cheaper. The success of the Wii was so influential that Microsoft and Sony rushed to replicate that genre of casual games controlled by movements and gestures, developing accessories such as the Kinect or the PS Move, respectively, which failed to arrive next to the phenomenon that Nintendo has ever created.
It was not a great success, but it helps the whole sector to start taking it into account in the following years and to take seriously the commitment of the people from Redmond in an industry that was already showing its first appearances within sectors such as gaming multiplayer. Before that, in 2001, Microsoft makes the jump to the console market (after years on a computer) with Xbox, a machine that was basically a computer compressed into a smaller space and which acts as the first shot for what will come more recently. In recent years, music has flourished among the young people of the parish, especially in the Crannóige Music School, a school where the traditional music and singing group An Crann Óg has been strengthened.
