Pubs don't want games for Nintendo systems right now, says n-Space

Once-struggling Florida studio prepared for a brighter future, but one potentially absent of the Nintendo platforms it once specialized in. (3DS, Nintendo, N-Space, Wii U)

Having no games kind of defeats the point of having a game console...

Hope your not referring to Wii u cause its been out nine months and has over130 games available between retail and the EShop. 130 games in nine months? No games? Come on really? Haters.
boya3gob94  +   322d ago
130 games ... most of these games are either crap or avaiable on other systems and people have already played them ... the only good game i can think of is pikmin 3 thats it
mudmax  +   321d ago
Looks as though nearly everyone seems to disagree with you buddy. Have you even been on the eshop, No. So how do you know what the games available are like. Foolish.

For a moment I was confused because I thought the title was referring to "pubs" as in the drinking establishments. lol

nintendo gots to get some games and not those 5 hour easy games you beat in one day like pikmin 3 and mario. they need those gta5 1000+ hour games that also have online and tons of features.

You completed Mario in 5 hours? You must be some kind of guru...or something.

A brighter future for n-space? Not unless they completely revamped their development team; their track record isn't exactly stellar.

As for the handheld market not being as strong, he's right, the 3DS isn't selling as much as the DS was, and the Vita is also struggling to sell as much as the PSP did. However, this could be due to the last generation of handhelds outperforming anything before it rather than a slow overall decline for the handheld market. And while it does make sense for them to develop games for more devices, the mobile market is pretty much saturated by now and the home console market is moving into a new generation, which is usually extremely competitive, and I'm not sure n-space has the skills to really make a great game that will stand out.

N-space doesn't have the skills to stand out. Let me list some of the games they have under their belt:

Mary-Kate and Ashley: Crush Course

Mary-Kate and Ashley: Magical Mystery Mall

Target Toss Pro: Lawn Darts

Hannah Montana: The Movie video game

Rugrats: Studio Tour

Call of Duty: Mobilized

Winx: Join the club

Hmmmmm.... No wonder why they're struggling.

You forgot Heroes of Ruin.

Hyped to no end.

Delayed.

What was released was a steaming pile of crap.

What happened is that they attempted to make an ARPG genre game and didn't understand the genre in the first place.

N-space is a terrible studio. I'm glad they won't be making any games for Nintendo. Nintendo can spend their resources promoting games from decent studios.
KonsoruMasuta  +   322d ago
Of course there isn't a demand for N-space games. These are the guys who made games like Mary-Kate and Ashley and Hannah Montana for the DS.

...And you don't see how that's a bad thing?

If a platform isn't viable enough for cheap shovelware to turn a profit, what chance do other, talented developers have?
KonsoruMasuta  +   322d ago
It only makes sense that the titles that lack quality don't make a profit.

Look at the sales of Luigi's Mansion. Quality game, and the sales reflect it.

The reason why cheap shovelware doesn't turn a profit is because it's CHEAP SHOVELWARE. The people don't want cheap, they want talent.

I think nintendo will bounce back after this. Both the gamecube and virtual boy were not received well, but they are still around. The wiiU I see, will end being like the gamecube.It will get it's new HD zelda,mario and other first party titles, and ride on software and 3ds sales.

If they make Geist2, I'll buy that for sure. Geist was there last good game. IMO.

3DS has been the highest selling system in the world for 3 straight months. Publishers don't want to make games for it? Does this make sense to ANYone??

I ain't a big fan of N-Space's work anyway. Tho, they could potentially step it up with this new dude in charge

Perhaps they were referring to Western pubs. Then they'd be right on the money, unfortunately. Western pubs think handhelds are below them or some snobby thing like that.
Misaka_x_Touma  +   322d ago
Well over course your last frisking game was trash Heroes of Ruin
