So your solution to avoiding lack of competition in the marketplace is
to have... less competitors in the marketplace?

What about those of us that see nothing but PS2 games? GameCube
exclusives? If you want to play a Mario game, can you do it on anything
other than a Nintendo system? If you say sales of the X-Box will cause
developers to abandon other platforms then why wouldn't the same happen
with sales of the PS2 (or PS3)? The best solution for gamers is to have
good sales across the board for all platforms so they won't miss out
on any titles.
