"During a Q&A session at Nintendo's Tokyo earnings report on Friday, Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata shared some details on Nintendo's plans for digital downloads.

One investor asked Iwata about his thoughts on paid download content. Nintendo is currently preparing a paid item transaction system for both 3DS and Wii U, Iwata revealed. For 3DS, this will be available to developers by the end of the year.", writes Andriasang.

One of the main disappointing things was the lack of updates, extra tracks and characters for Mario Kart Wii.

Switch that to Brawl and I'd agree.

Paid

:/

I like free stuff.

"..things like unlocking keys or stat increases -- would, while likely increasing short term profits, not not allow them to build along term relationship with customers. Therefor, Nintendo feels that it should not have this type of low quality content for itself."

i was watching some f zero videos on youtube.. both f zero x and gx.

can't believe how badly gx has aged.. it looks a mess. also, it strayed really far from what f zero was about, especially visually.

in f zero x, nintendo kept the overall look of the snes game.. the barren simplicity of the tracks actually gave more pace to the game. for some reason sega cluttered gx with loads of trackside details, and made you race through interiors :/

in f zero x the presentation was great too, using comic style renders for the character selects.. wicked. but in gx you get shitty polygonal characters. I really hope they go back to that manga style for f zero.

to top it all off, the music in gx is shit.

f zero x was such a great game, i hope if nintendo do make another game in the series, they take it back to its roots.

What...

F-zero and F-zero X were limited by the hardware.
F-zero GX is perfectly fine for what the original and F-zero X were going for. You are complaining that they made use of the visual power to add the futuristic settings.
What boggles me the most is how you complain how GX looks outdated, but F-zero X hasn't aged at all?

F-zero GX did nothing wrong, and it exactly that what F-zero is. You can not tell me you believe the hardware limitations is what represented F-zero as a whole?

Didn't F-zero on the SNES give it away with the City below? ( yes thats suppose to be a city with high ways and whatever)

"to top it all off, the music in gx is shit. "
You may not like it, but its far from shit.

"f zero x was such a great game, i hope if nintendo do make another game in the series, they take it back to its roots."

LOL, F-zero has always been at its root.
Stop making stuff up just so you can complain.

(snes) f zero mute city- http://www.youtube.com/watc...

very classic style, just pure racing. Take in the atmosphere of all there... the music, the presentation, the look. f zero is pure gameplay. distinctive graphic style.

(n64)F zero x mute city- http://www.youtube.com/watc...

same as before, only now with the third dimension... loop the loop etc. great field of depth and open space. f zero x expands on the original but stays true to the basics.

(gamecube) f zero gx mute city- http://www.youtube.com/watc...

...gone are all the hallmarks of a f zero game. now its claustrophobic and cluttered, dark and horrible to look at.

f zero gx... changes everything. no more open sweeping landscapes, the graphic style changes, and the music becomes techno orientated.

sega threw everything that nintendo established with the series and instead went with a graphical style and feel more related to this- http://www.youtube.com/watc...

sonic the hedgehog! You can just imagine sonic running along the stages in f zero gx. even the music fits. and the casino stage (facepalm.) come to think of it, sega blew it big time with gx.

''F-zero and F-zero X were limited by the hardware. '' '' You can not tell me you believe the hardware limitations is what represented F-zero as a whole?''

true, but those hardware limitations became part of its style. like mario. mario doesn't have to be limited to red and blue, but he keeps his looks because it became part of his character. sega didn't respect what was already established. instead they took the f zero universe to sonics universe.

f zero was always in an alien looking environment, one a 1000 years from now. sega made it realistic and drab. bar the track floating in the air, it could easily be the modern day.

'' You are complaining that they made use of the visual power to add the futuristic settings. ''

f zero x was in a very futuristic setting. look at the pink hue of the sky in the vid link i posted. and the architecture in the background.. thats very futuristic. its like nothing on earth. all sega did is make you race through dubai :/ or las vegas. loads of neon lights, and tall buildings.. oh and through the centre of a volcano :l not f zero at all.

''What boggles me the most is how you complain how GX looks outdated, but F-zero X hasn't aged at all?''

seriously, i thought the same... until i looked at the vids. gx has aged really badly. it looks like a game of its time, rather than a game that was doing anything special. and believe me, i spent many hours engrossed in this game. but looking back on vids, f zero x has aged a lot better. its vision is a lot better.

''You may not like it, but its far from shit. ''

again, do the comparison. gx is the weakest. f zero music was always catchy. gx music was forgettable.

''Stop making stuff up just so you can complain.''

ha, im not complaining, just giving my honest opinion.

i hope nintendo take this game back in house, and do it their way. i love their vision for this series. segas vision sucks.

Great, so DLC for Super Smash and Mario Kart for Wii U and 3DS! I hope, however, that developers don't release unfinished games just to charge you for the extra content.
