Couldn't I just get the Prime Collection and otherwise enjoy games on the Virtual Console in that case, avoiding them altogether since we're stuck with idiots thinking they should announce everything at E3?
personally, they are basically releasing a 360/ps3 and aren't giving much else. I wouldn't miss them if they dropped from the race. They made too many bad choices and they still make bad choices. For example, the previous director for FFXIV mocked the rpg's of today to feature the jump ability. Just recently he was let go and now the game has a new director, its being revamped from the ground up, with jump. I just think nintendo need's someone to steer the boat in the right direction than let the "man" not ask for directions. Nintendo is lost.
That part about nintendo I've never really understood. They really suck at marketing and hyping their games until like the last minute. People want to look forward to the games they'll get, dammit. D:<
From Wikipeda, the free life spy satellite: "After receiving his degree, Fils-Aime took a position with Procter & Gamble. Following that, he took a position as Senior Director of National Marketing at Pizza Hut, where he launched the Bigfoot Pizza and The Big New Yorker.
Fils-Aime has served as the Head of Marketing for Guinness in the United States and was responsible for all brands. He also worked as Chief Marketing Officer at Derby Cycle Corporation, directing sales and marketing efforts for eight brands. Fils-Aime served as Managing Director and oversaw Raleigh U.K., Derby's British operations just six months in 1999.
He then joined the world's Chinese food service leader, Panda Management Co., acting as Senior Vice President. Later, he came on board to VH1 as Senior Vice President. He was responsible for a 30% increase in ratings by refocusing the channel's content to appeal to younger viewers."
Perhaps, but I can't help but spare the XBOX 360 due to it being a newer entry into the market, as Microsoft isn't much of a hardware maker, with the PS3 monolith, I think it was meant to evoke the feelings of power with owning such a powerful system. The PS2 or PS1 were not exactly pretty when they first came out either.

Definitely. It's probably not going to be a mistake they'll make again.

Powerful or not, most people thought the price was too steep. At least the ps1 and ps2 could fit into the tv shelves. Not to mention the loud fans and high electricity consumption. The ps3 slim was very necessary, imo. Not to mention the super slim, now that is an impressive size.
Certainly, but really I think they went overboard with making sure there was plenty of space for the entire system and cooling. Once they learned what they could do after years of research, they finally shrank it with shrunken production costs.
Wouldn't be the first console to do this, everyone remember the Xbox's famous "Red Ring of Death" Another classic example of a "premature-born console". But like a premature born child, it isn't completely unable to be salvaged and saved. Though a lot of extra work is going to be needed to keep it "alive" during these awkward and unpredictable months that are due to follow, so hopefully Nintendo knows what to do to keep people interested until they A) fix up any bugs or issues, and B) start releasing titles that long-term Nintendo lovers actually care about playing (yes another Mario or Zelda release may seems tired and predictable - but hey, they sell and are probably the only reason why some people in their 20's and older still care about their consoles )
They should have made a new Smash Bros game for its launch. I bet that's the main thing that got GameCube's and Wii's off the shelves (even though it was late for the Wii). But I suppose it's better that they save what will probably be the best game on the system until after they get everything figured out.
Better last year than this year. Rumors says that Microsoft and Sony are going to release their own new consoles. Rumor also says that Microsoft might even have the new console make 3D realistic environments across the room.
I'm guessing the top part means you're not going to get the 720?
I'm not going to lie. I think that's my least worry with Sony. If Sony's serious about that only-plays-new-games policy is true, then a part of me hope they don't get the exclusives I want. I mean the new X-box is one thing, you can still play any of the appropriate compatible games as you wish. The same for the Wii-U. But I can't really take having to pre-order or go to a game store really early in order to get every exclusive I want. Not to mention, I don't always keep track of new games. There are some games that I hear about in a year later.
Yes i did. If i have to pay for playing online while im already paying for internet connection then fuck it. Also last thing i want is console shooting colorful objects and lights to my living room.. Just.. no. Interesting concept but doesn't work if the new box version is same as the new kinect concept. P.S nothing works in kinect, even WII does better in that area.
I never get pre-orders. I'm not the gamer type who goes omigosh i have to get this golden weapon before anyone else and take 3 day break from work just to make my hemorrhoid bigger.. Meh. Also i'm more of a PC gamer, i only get adventure and hack n slash games on consoles that work better with controller than mouse+keyboard combination.
I was planning to get WII U this year but my financial shit needs to be sorted out and it doesn't have any interesting game.. Yet. Warriors Orochi is kinda game i like, but something tells me i need to avoid that. Blops 2 is another but my hand motorics "stall" when playing controller fps. I never got into zelda (i did play link to the past ages ago) so the question is: ..Is it worth it?
I agree that the internet thing is bs. As for their new gimmick, so far it's just a rumor but I wouldn't be surprised if it were true. Microsoft seems to want to 1-up Nintendo on some kind of motion control and gimmick. Now rumor has it that Sony is also going to do the i-pad controller thing like Nintendo.
I'm more of a PC gamer myself too. Shooter Combat Sims, adventure and rpgs are what I like the most for PC. Shmups and Platformers is what I use consoles for.
I have a Wii-U right now. I, uh, wait until the Wii-U has better upgrades because it suffers from the same problem as Sony and Microsoft 7th Gen consoles. It works but the loading and updating is a pain. However, I did get it for BLOPS 2 and NSMBU. Both are great games. I'm planning on getting Rayman Legends as well. Zombi U is pretty good (if you like survival horror) and Bayonetta 2 and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate are coming out soon. I think the console is worth getting but not right now.
Not alot of people know what they are talking about. The Wii U has made 30 million than the Wii did in it's first few months. 3DS as well as the Xbox 360 and PS3 all had slow starts and have turned into successful console in their own time.
