Reggie: PS3 is too expensive without good Games, Wii Online Titles coming

In a recent interview, Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime stated that he believes the PS3 is stacking up because it is too expensive and doesn't have a selection of good games. When questioned about the Wii acting as a 'party console', Reggie replied by saying just look at the DS. It was also stated that online titles will be coming soon for the Wii and that Ninty is about to move onto their next huge stage in growth!

-- "He said it is a fact that the PlayStation 3 inventory is "stacking up worldwide" because it's too expensive and doesn't have the right games. He said Sony made too big a bet on Blu-ray and on the price that the consumer is willing to pay for gaming. He said the Blu-ray vs HD-DVD war is shaping up to be a "bloody battle that won't be resolved soon." --

Yeah well too bad time is not on Ninty's side, because the games are Definitely going to be there as sure as the sun rises in the East and sets in the West. The best thing that Reggie can do with this early influx of Godsent cash is invest money in creating a more powerful system for the 2008-2010 timeframe because once all the kids wear out the novelty of the weemote and enough adults find out that the graphics are from the Technicolor age, he won't be so quick to gloat. People get so antsy when the PS3 comes to the table. PlayStation is the 500 lb. gorilla in the room and everyone's been trying to steal the banana (sorry for the Donkey Kong pun). Ninty once had it, lost it (Superdisc anyone) and 360 makes a sturdy effort, but won't steal the ape's prize posession; however the effort is much more respected with a similar machine.

Reg, go easy big fella, go easy. Reggie's got the 7-16 year old crowd wrapped up. Now it's time to make toys for big boys; otherwise, you're not scaring anyone bro and you're numbers are inflated and created through S&D maneuvers. Akin to the numbers seen at box office sales for movies like Ice Age and the Little Mermaid. Kids, kids, kids.

We already know the praise that PS3's been getting from dev's lately and how good the games look ALREADY not a year from now. But wait - what will they look like a year from now? Two years from now. Why drop the price for a AAA piece of hardware which looks and behaves like 2007 instead of 1907? So continue to enjoy Pokemon 1000 and Super Mario 15. I graduated from you guys around 1993 and never looked back. Oh well, someone loves you. Just not hardcore gamers like myself. And I'm not being oblivious to the wii's features -- it's just that I prefer to play evolved, not gimmicky games with 'ol school graphics.
So laugh now, cry later Reg & mart. And what the hell is the "next rocket stage" in our growth? Are they coming out with a 120gigHDD black & shiny Wii like MS (allegedly) is? (Hmm..interesting)

Oh, and work on those third party relations too Reg. I heard they're not too keen on developing for your system right now. I wonder why? Whatdya say mart? A li'l Oblivion on the wii? Or would you rather play the not so sharp version on your anatomically attached 360? Doh!

Mart this is specifically for you 'ol boy. You wanna raise the 360 flag and wave it all day while crying fair play? Especially in this case for no apparent reason. Someone's gotta regulate you. You're a regular menace to society. Spreadin' poison man.

Ps3 has been out just 3 months yet its getting wrote off too early.PS3 has good games coming out that will sell the system and show what the PS3 can do.

I really think that Sony has made a ton of mistakes up to this point and we have all heard them so I don't feel like I should go and mention them. As of now there are no games out on the PS3 that appeal to me in anyway shape or form and I can't justify the 600 dollar price, as I think many others can't either, but the system is still really early. That being said, I can still see myself picking one up sometime in the future, maybe this summer, if they drop the price a bit and get some of the better games out, aka Heavenly Sword, Lair, Motorstorm, MGS4, and DMC 4. In the meantime, I shall continue to enjoy my 360 of which I'm very happy with.

I agree with reggie. The ps3 is overpriced and only has 1 decent game- Resistance. I think microsoft got things exactly right. There are alot of good games on the console with many more to come, the controller is perfect-not too light, not too heavy but just right, the online is superior to every other console, the interface is good too, and its priced at 400. This is all my opinion of course but i guess it just comes down to personal preference.

Also- "We already know the praise that PS3's been getting from dev's lately and how good the games look ALREADY not a year from now"

Um no. Ps3 got praise from a playstation only developer (Factor 5) and thats about it. BTW we all know that microsoft has been getting praise for its dev tools by everyone in the industry since day 1.

Also specifcially in response to ps3 fan- I find it funny how prior to the ps3 launch you and all the other sony fanboys were saying WAIT for the ps3 to launch because its going to magically start dominating 360 and wii but 360 has an installed base of around 8 or 9 million and ps3 is being outsold by wii and ps3s are just sitting on shelves. And you all said wait for ps3s second gens titles to come out because it isnt fair to compare Gears to Resistance which is complete BS by the way for 360 titles will always be a gen ahead(2nd gen to 1st gen, 3rd gen to 2nd gen etc.) And now you say WAIT for good games to come out so that ps3s can start selling and because the ones currently out are garbage.

Interesting.

I dunno which one of you it really is, but I don't believe the article is about the 360. The article is about Reg's comments on the Wii not mart's obsession with the 360. You fell for that and defend the 360 which is your right, but don't lump me in with 360 hating 'cause it doesn't exist.

--"Um no. Ps3 got praise from a playstation only developer (Factor 5) and thats about it. BTW we all know that microsoft has been getting praise for its dev tools by everyone in the industry since day 1."

J2K - This statement is hardly worth dissecting J2K as you know the PS3 has earned kudos from not only it's first party anchors, (who scoffed even at how it Wasn't going to be easy), but also other studios such as Epic and even Kojima who likes the rumble of the 360 controller but Needs the 50gig support for his games. And it looks like rumble will be here S.oon O.nly N.ot Y.et. All good things come to those who wait. SNE = games. You're trying to tell me that SNE won't have games, man? That's like the wave leaving the beach and never coming back.

-- "And you all said wait for ps3s second gens titles to come out because it isnt fair to compare Gears to Resistance which is complete BS by the way for 360 titles will always be a gen ahead(2nd gen to 1st gen, 3rd gen to 2nd gen etc.) And now you say WAIT for good games to come out so that ps3s can start selling and because the ones currently out are garbage. "

This shows that you have never played the PS3 in any way, shape fashion or form. Now, if the ONLY game you played was Gundam, I'd be mistaken, but yet still I doubt it.

That's right it is about personal preference and RFOM, Motorstorm, KZII, MG4, HS, Lair, NHL2K7, FNR3, GTHD(would've preferred even the rushed version, admittedly), WRHK, Oblivion, DMC4, bac. compat with 'ol P2 collection; not to mention, the AAA Blu-ray player, HDMI 1.3, 7.1 DolbyHD circle surround support, reads my pro duo cards, etc... those were my wants, needs , w/e with the PS3. You can look at all my prior posts and not once find where I tried to predict what kind of games the PS3 would have, much less that it was going to pummel MS. And your right I don't want "any of you" in Gears of War. It's really not my cup of tea.

Seriously this is a good point I haven't really mentioned this fact because it is Nintendo and god knows what they will do. The way I see it is MS wins this gen IMO because ony wont be able to match the price cuts and MS will hit the 199$ or less mark before sony is at 299 or so IMO. So when MS wins this gen they get c0cky like what has happened to Sony and Nintendo, Then nintendo comes out with this uber machine that kills MS and I honestly don't know what Sony will do if things keep going the way they are going. As I don't see the High Defenition DVD wars ending anytime soon. But trust me I don't have much faith in MS's next console just because companys are stupid and fall in the same patterns then the consumers reminds them whos in charge. Sony is gonna be in a hard place with the PS4 just due to the fact that even with Blu-Ray leading it wont be resolved by that time and if they go with Blu-Ray again it will fall in the category of the PS3.5 like so many people call the 360. Sony's only real hope is to use this gen as a building tool for the PNP and offer a true online experience for the PS4. But mark my words Sony can not win this Gen unless they get the price below or even at the same price as the 360, Because in the end they are to similar to justify the price gap when it comes to gaming. Especially when the people that buy systems at 199$ or less dont care about Xbox live or Blu-Ray. They just want a cheap system with cheap games of 19.99 or less. Plus Maddens you can't count out the Wii son, they will sell a Sh!t load since they are already making a profit on every system eventually that thing will be 99$ with a bunch of decent games and I don't know any parent that won't buy Jr. one just so he shuts up about wanting a new game system. Also all the people that will get it as a second system. I did and trust me I prefer the Wii60 combo as I feel it offers me every gaming experience this gen. But I advise you not to pass on the Wii so easy get a PSWii and you wont be dissapointed your wallet will but you wont. Any true gamer wouldn't have it as a main system but a true gamer WOULD have it as a second system.

You bring up good points but I honestly just can't see through Sony boys eyes (I Wish I could understand). It is crap, and after playing Xbox live there is no turning back. I loved my PS2 but once you start using XBL it is hard to take Sony seriously. At 400$ they would have killed at 600$ they are getting killed!

Just for god sake Nintendo name your next uber system something respectable! Hell I would accept "Nintendo Ultra HD Revolution" over "Wii 2" or probably knowing Nintendo "Wii Too"

Also PS3 Fan people aren't writing the PS3 off they just aren't dumb enough to buy into Sony's hype machine again. They are incredible at hyping systems and MS is horrible at it, But then again the proof is in the pudding and if we fast foward in time you would see that the PS3 does OK but wont catch the 360 and Hell the 360 might fall into 2nd behind the Wii, but PS3 will be last this gen just due to price.

kornbeaner3628d ago

the PS3 is not selling cause frankly it has no game worth playing.
But it will and it'll have plenty for X-mas '07. It's just to early to write off the PS3. Nintendo released a solid product, but with kids being so discensatized, It just doesn't have new IP's that appeal to the more "hardcore" gamers. Most of their products are geared towards kids and most kids are already tired of Pokemon, and I Love classic mario, but i Feel the Series needs a kick somwhere to bring back the Glory days, Metroid is growing Stale, Zelda is the Only franchise i feel that manages to stay fresh, Nintendo was great has remained good but it need some juice to keep up and so far (outside of the handheld market) they haven't been able to.
