I find that funny when you have an Uncharted picture... wait. N4G has brainwashed me into thinking people can't support more than 1 console at a time... DAMN!

I like the Uncharted series, but I don't kiss SONY's ass, or any other company for that matter. If you read some of my previous posts on this site, you would know I'm not some fanboy who worships companies. So before making some smartass comment, get your facts straight.

Oh, and I own all three consoles.

And after more than 25 years, Nintendo still strong as ever!

I grow up on nes, snes, gamecube and the wii and it amaze me how Nintendo keeps constant quality of their games through the years!

Resident evil lost their way to the shooter crowd, silent hill is a going down hill (pun non intended) since the fourth one, DMC is going against their fans with the reboot, finally fantasy is getting worst and worst since X, megaman is almost non existent and capcom are trolling his fans.

Yet, Mario and Zelda are still true to their roots, took risks that may angered their fans but still proved them wrong when they actually play it like wind waker.

Playing a Nintendo classic in this age of flashing bloody screens and regenerating health is truly a breath of fresh air, they reminds me why I love gaming since I was a kid. Game full of content and unlockables like smash brawl without greedy 5$ for skins or items or whatever, outstanding soundtracks that blends perfectly with the theme of the game, today's soundtracks mostly are generic, uninspiring mediocrity.

And most importantly Nintendo respect it talented staff that made the company to what it is today, because they know they worth nothing without those talented people.

But now look at other franchises that sucked this Gen, most of them brushed off the key people of the franchise which lead to the degradation in quality like ninja gaiden and final fantasy, etc.

when i think of industry analysts, i think of Michael Pachter. and according to him, 3DS was predicted to be successful.

if ur talking about the gloom and doom articles on n4G about 3DS, i dont think we should take it too seriously.

but u do have to give those people some credit cuz they made their opinions due to the fact that 3DS sales were slow. it wasnt until the 80 dollar price drop did the unit start selling.

EDIT: wow.. nice play on that sneaky editing after u noticing ur comment kinda sucked

@Fel08, Comments like that are really no better than people hating on Nintendo.

3GenGames2057d ago

65 what out of each cent? C'mon, you should know it's "precent" and not "per cent."

It tickles me inside to see that Nintendo is completely dominating the Japanese gaming industry. The Nintendo 3DS entertainment console remains a force to be reconed with as it shows the noble good people of Japan how gaming is done right. With groundbreaking tech under the hood, and superior Nintendo 3DS exclusives sprinkled evenly through the year, there is something for everyone on the Nintendo 3DS entertainment console.

Kingdom Hearts and Kid Icarus Uprising is just the beginning of the Nintendo exclusive domination. The elite Nintendo gamers of Japan have clearly casted the vote with their wallets for which company provides them with the greatest experience imaginable. As one of the the millions of Nintendo gamers in Japan and worldwide we will continue to show our love and support for these AAA exclusive franchises, and the Nintendo 3DS entertainment console.

Nintendo has proven to the people of the gaming industry why they are the greatest, and most respected gaming company that has ever done it. Especially in the handheld sector. Where they have an Undefeated streak that rivals The Undertaker at Wrestlemania.

There will likely be many more surprises from the purified greatness that is Nintendo come this E3 2012. Have a good day and happy gaming.

Rated E For Everyone
