Microtransactions for their "free to Start" mobile phone games = no thank you, for me.
As it should be. They've already stated that they're keeping a clear divide between their console and phone endeavors, so it's perfectly fine that this isn't your speed. Most of their phone games will be used as a form of advertisement for their consoles and a small side source of cash flow: it won't ever replace their consoles, so it's fine to not care about their phone stuff because it really doesn't apply to us.^_^
"free to start" is different to pay to win how? That pokemon rumble game that got released recently is an addictive game but really it costs about 10-20 to actually play the full version of it. It's essentually a full game within the demo but with the chance of gaining more money the longer someone plays. interesting medium but being greedy with the prices can really backfire.
downloadable games....i hope Nintendo go bankrupt, their online oilicy is a batshit
A little much...? I'm a big Nintendo fan and extremely disappoined in them, but wishing that seems a bit extreme.
Multiplayer/socializing will come to VR eventually that's just common sense. VR tech is still in its infancy so STFU, Miyamoto.
Love the fact they are speaking their minds and not cowering in a corner.
Really? I think it's about time they learnt when to STFU. Stop criticising your far more successful competitors practice's and concentrate on the severe problems you have at home. They just keep throwing cheap jabs at MS and Sony, it makes them seem really insecure and worried by their failures. They are incapable of doing anything right at the moment, so they try and trash-talk their rivals at every opportunity. It makes you look as childish as the majority of your games Nintendo, as a "family friendly" company you should be setting a higher tone.
They are incapable of doing anything right? Number 1 developer Number 1 in toys Number 1 handheld Deals for things outside of games Seems like they are doing a lot right.
How many times is the same thing going to be reposted?
Nintendo the worst third party support the worst online service the worst hardware the worst selling home console
On 3ds? No. Third party support is great. Free online? I will take that. Does not matter Best selling handheld, best selling games. Actually they are in pretty great shape compared to Sony who is losing billions. I have alerted a mod to your constant trolling and harrassment. Hopefully you will be delt with.
'Third party support is great' Sure. Minecraft is on every platform in the world except Wii u and 3DS. A damn potato can run minecraft before a Nintendo platform can.
@antifan What other systems is Bravely Default on? I can pick individual games too and play that game. What other system is Zelda Triforce Heroes on? 3DS has an amazing library.
@RPGrinder Maybe they should just drop consoles and concentrate on "toys" and "deals for things outside of games?" then. They are obviously better at making toys than they are at making game consoles.
They still need to do consoles. How can they put all the amazing games they do on it? Wii U might not be selling, but Nintendo has supported the system more than the other two have supported theres. That does not make the system bad. They have been recognized by journalists as the top publisher/dev, 3 years running, if they want to talk about games, what they feel about games, they can say whatever they want.
what amazing games? Bayonetta 2 isn't made by Nintendo, Smash Bros isn't made by Nintendo.
What if they talk themselves up all the time whilst knocking the opposition who happen to be far more successful this gen. Who do they think they are? Why would anyone take any notice of what they say when they are at the bottom of the heap? It's like a club runner criticising Usain Bolts running style. Pathetic.
And Sony talks up Vita, who do they think they are? When a company is asked to speak they do. We want that.This was an interview, what did you want them to do? Say nothing? LoL They are the best publisher/game dev in the industry, if they have something to say, people do listen/.
Can't believe Angeljuice using the words "far more successful" and "this gen", has the cognitive ability to also criticize Nintendo as being less successful. You're aware the market leader for core gamers last generation is now second by a FAR WIDE MARGIN?
I'm just fed up with Reggie and co continuously telling everyone else what they are doing wrong whilst simultaneously denying and defending the WiiU 'clusterfudge'. They identify where everyone else is going 'wrong' but when it comes to the WiiU they act as though it's perfect and the only reason it hasn't sold is because the consumers don't understand it. They don't accept any responsibility for their mistakes, its always someone else's fault. Their arrogance is astronomical, they believe their own hype and because of that think every move they make is golden, even the mistakes.
Shigeru Miyamoto stated outright what we thought went wrong with the Wii U. I guess he's earned the right to say whatever the hell he wants too.
Me personally I feel Nintendo should just start they own version of Steam and allow gamers to play they games on PC, I'm not saying Nintendo should stop making consoles but by doing this they can sell a lot more Software
That's weird ninty because I've only heard positive things about the Morpheus from fans...
Vr is nonsense. We all know this. That tech wont be ready for prime time until my grand kids are ready to play. Say in another 30 years or so. maybe then we might give a f**k. Meanwhile, I thought you meant how Nintendo screwed everyone over that spend money on Wii eStores behind serious DRM's and now lost about $300 to $400 dollars worth of software because of failing hardware. If you want to apologize for something, apologize for that and make restitution. Not for imaginary gimmicks and buzzwords. I tell you this business is pack to the brim with people that make no sense. It was good to Adam Sessler on E3 again, made me feel there was hope again.
