Traditionally speaking, Nintendo is "winning" the "console war" with Switch because Switch is in the generation after PS4/XBO... If you said that PS4Pro and XBX were in the same generation as Switch, it's less clear. XBX isn't out yet, obviously. Sony's official numbers says "20% of PS4 sales since November 2016 are Pro". PR people are trying to make it sound like 1 in 5 PS4's are Pro, making it look like Pros have sold over 12m...
Not really... Nintendo doesn't made a dime from streaming apps. And when you think about it, TV/Movies/Web browsing are all things that are in direct competition to playing games. So if you're a company that lives or dies on the amount of screen time people are giving your games, you're not going to want to say "hey, go pay $30 and watch Netflix for 3 hours instead of playing Mario Kart". Consumers, on the other hand, will think differently. To them, a...
"Under powered" relative to what? People need to learn how games are made.
Who says Pauline wasn't always the mayor? Kotaku is promoting gender stereotypes.
So, identical to 2016. FRIGHTENING!
Or you could always, you know, play the game and master the controls. But nah, just do the easy thing.
Eh. Who cares.
"Day 78 of Nintendo Switch release and still no sign of a version of a game that hit stores 12 months ago. In other news, Nintendo Switch has too many ports, dooming Nintendo to another five years of doom. More at six." - The Media.
Know what would be more useful? An actual guide.
If it shuts up the doom mongers, yes.
N4G has a rule against posting site news (news about a website from the website). Interesting how only certain rules are followed sometimes.
The article doesn't make this clear but the analyst is predicting 14.5 million sales by the end of December, essentially.
So, a development team who employed an ex-Nintendo employee (who left Nintendo because he went off message and violated their internal policies) makes a Metroid "inspired" game, submits it to Nintendo's indie quality assurance programme during its most busy time and complains that they're taking too long? Perhaps if it had less bugs it'd be easier to pass through QA. It's the same story from indies. They're used to submittin...
Does this site use the IGeNerator? http://www.jocchan.com/stuf...
The interviewer doesn't ask her what it means to take on the role of Zelda. But really, what does it mean? Paid work.
lol The writer would've hated the early-mid 90's and its Dracula game phase. Probably wasn't alive yet though.
Typical of Pachter. He's basically saying "if Sony can't win they'll take the whole industry out with them!". Pachter is a rabid PlayStation fanboy. This is the guy who kept counting out Xbox 360 and Wii even though they were both vastly outselling the PS3. Did the same with 3DS, saying the Vita would sell more units. He has Sony-painted goggles on.
After reading, the point seems to be that the game might fail because the publisher... wants money for it. I mean, that's essentially what the article is saying. That it might cost too much to be any kind of success. Or that the most riskiest thing about the game is that it has a price point consistent with a brand new title. Even if that were a risk, my point still stands: The publishers definition of "success" is probably extremely differe...
Without reading the article, of course it can. Do you know the publishers ROI expectations? Or even what the investment was to begin with? They've prettied up an ancient title for a major console launch window. Would not have cost them much, compared with the task of developing a new game from scratch. So even if it achieves a 10% attachment rate (which is probably small for a franchise like this, this early in the console lifecycle) that's still translating to a pile of cash.
Gamers need to understand the difference between "I want more third party games" and "I want more AAA games". I've seen the conversation DEMANDING Nintendo get more third party support. It's assumed that will lead to games like Crysis, etc, appearing on Nintendo consoles. But the crowds never seem to stipulate that as a desire and what happens? Ubisoft pledge support and announce... Monopoly. Activision rushes to launch with... Skylanders. 154d ago 3 agree1 disagreeView comment
