"As we all gear up for the big holiday gaming season, speculation has begun that Nintendo is planning a few surprises in order to keep gamers interested in the powerhouse brand." TheGameReviews diggs into the current rumors.
If nothing else, these rumors are helping nintendo... I'd nearly forgot about them until these started popping up...
Very true. I'd completely forgot about Metroid until the article mentioned it! Too much dust gathering around Wii consoles everywhere.
I hope its some decent games
Dust is covering people's Wii's on the Internet that is, people use their Wii's more regularly than what you might think. Just because they don't post on N4G doesn't mean they don't play their systems.
I expect them to refresh their console with everyone else, but it seems so much smarter to simply update the hardware of the current Wii -- pack in controllers with the WiiMotion Plus built in, add a hard drive, perhaps some more graphical power. Consumers aren't interested in the new thing, they just want a Wii, so give them a Wii.
Yeah, they need to meet demand. I still have not yet seen a wii on a store shelf. Even if they are artificially keeping supply down I don't get why they wouldn't want to sell as many as possible...
Seems like Nintendo could just ride the Wii wave for 10 more years. They could be the only true "ten year lifecycle" console because it's going to take that long for them to catch up with demand. No reason for them to rush out a new console.
would anyone be excited about nintenedo anymore?
Er hem Open Zone------------->
you can say what you want . . . that was a legitimate statement.
Lol, it's not like I'm excited about ps3 and 360 games. :P
no matter how lackluster Nintendo has gotten, the world over still knows the name even beating out Mickey Mouse as the most iconic character ever, Mario is known moreso than you think. So to answer your question, yes, the world still cares about Nintendo, whether the "hardcore" gamer whines on and on about their specs and hard drive space, Nintendo keeps raking in the gold? If know one knew or cared about them anymore, how the hell would they be making all this dang profit then.
Suck me and Nintendo's d1ck please. We deserve it.
Of course it's a legitimate statement, but if you don't support it with anything it becomes a meaningless statement. Maybe if you support your questions or statements you'll be taken more seriously. Just a thought.
Hopefully Nintendo does not spill the beans about their plans.Otherwise people will see TGS and Nintendo will have nothing new to show
Err... Nintendo typically doesn't participate in TGS...
they won't be at TGS but they are having their october conference its starting tonight
Thats right.I forgot.Well I think the 3rd parties are backing up Nintendo on that end.I hope Nintendo shows off something good in its conference
smacktard actually nintendo announced the wii remote at the 2005 tgs. so i wouldnt look this one over just yet.
Microsoft and Sony both are delivering games to care about in the here and now. I'm in no need of ideas to put on a wishlist for next xmas. The thought of waiting that long for something has never inspired a feeling even close to joy in me.
seriously what are you talking about how long did it take for sonys and microsofts games to come out when they announced them? you make it sound like a game comes out the next day after they announce it
@D*ck Jones How is Alan Wake? Oh thats right...2009 even though it was announced 2005.How about Gran Turismo 5?...thats right 2010.
Hey if your happy with all the shovelware the wii is getting then I suppose Nintendo is right for targeting granparents and soccer moms instead of gamers. Sony and Microsoft are both delivering alot of good games now, they have never left their customers SOL for the holidays.
that's not really true when ps3 cane out during the holidays all they had was resistance i can't really remember what they had last holiday same for the 360 what your saying is all in personal taste ps3 has nothing i want this holiday season i wanted socom but after playing the beta i changed my mind i still want socom just not confrontation the only thing xbox has that i want this holiday season is gears of war 2 and that's it
Who cares about Gran Turismo???? its only the best selling Sony game ever made...lets just not talk about it though. also funny how you talk about demographic when you have Puss in Boots as an avatar.
What does his avatar have to do anything with his argument?
D!ck Jones backing the faulty hardware.. You would think after Robocop killed your POS Ed209, that you would develop better taste in hardware. Sorry for the D! but the POS filter wont let me say your name.
Hey Nintendo Rep.. When you want to talk about Mature games and such its best not to have a picture of something that appeals to 5 year old girls.. Thats what it has to do with his argument. Just like when a Sony fans complains about casual games when they have LkidsP as their avatar.
It still has nothing to do with the argument, Product is merely just pointing out that his avatar is Puss in Boots which has no direct link to gaming. People love cats and watching PG movies with girlfriends and family so why not?
lol hes talking about soccer moms and grand parents buying the casual wii console and bashing it for such when he has his "mature" themed games for the ps3 or xbox.......you know nvm,over your head One word sums it up best ...irony.
Moron works better for me. Just some 12 year old punk without a valid point changing his story every time someone points the flaws out in his statement. He talks about not caring about Alan wake or GT but what about Home? What about Killzone2? So many of Sony's games that were launch titles got pushed back for over a year. Nintendo isnt the one that reveals info a year before the game comes out. That is Sony, but that clueless idiot could never see that. It's hard to see whats going on in the world when you got your head so far up Sony's backside you get a taste of Kens breakfast every day
if theres anything that i expect to hear from nintendo tomorrow its a new revamp of the DS, at least a new Wii game and some info on a Wii storage Device to download your Wiiware/Virtual Console games.
