Well, they're not the only ones. n4g should be called op4g (opinion pieces for gamers). All the real news gets buried.
I got both :P
There were Wii shortages initially... just like the Switch. It would be interesting to see how they both would do if there was a greater supply at launch. The Wii shortage lasted for months. People were selling them on eBay for butt tons.
Thing that bothers me is why Microsoft feels the need to announce a completely new console so soon. To me, that just shows a lack of support for the XBOX One. If they're announcing a new console, I expect a lot of resources are looking to the new hardware and not developing as much for the XBOX One. So yeah, they may have a more powerful console than Sony sooner, but they still have their resources split. At this point in a console's life cycle development should be streamlined, and g...
The only thing more divisive than this election is GameStop :D
I have to agree. No HDMI, and at $125 I would expect more... like a 2nd controller at the least. People don't buy these as a real console, they buy them for nostalgia and fun with friends. That's where the 2nd controller would prove useful. Since people don't buy these as a real console, something just for a brief fun time/party time, they don't want to invest in more controllers.
No HDMI. :/
Switch will also not succeed without a real network. Nintendo's network is far behind Steam, Live and PSN... it feels closed and there is no uniformity. They make it difficult to make friends, and censor everything for the kids. If they're gonna show adults playing in in the sizzle reel they damn sure better have a network that is geared for their "target" audience. If it really is their target audience. They could do a bait and switch... Get early adopters to buy, then push...
I highly doubt it will happen. i could be wrong, but that number seems awful optimistic. Maybe since there isn't any other new hardware this holiday and it is a lower price point to get into VR, I just haven't seen much interest outside of core/diverse gamers.
Especially if you're playing one of them adults only games.
Meh... waiting for Final Fantasy and The Last Guardian. I'll get Battlefield and Mafia when the price drops... maybe on Black Friday. There isn't much this year worth $60 to me.
Sony rode the PS2 as one of the most successful consoles ever (If not, still the most successful) being the least powerful console on the market at the time. It's all about GAMES!
This happens every time a big/interesting game launches. The "media" more often than not want hits to fund the machine, so they often make up criticisms. I'm all for being honestly critical, but everyone who follows gaming "news" should know the routine by now. Same thing every year.
I'll definitely be getting it. 3D Dot Game Heroes was awesome... this one is obviously more Wind Waker than TLZ though. Nintendo is probably amassing their lawyers as I type.
I hope it's fake because I can't read Japanese... they should have left the new format in English.
I'm a mostly PlayStation gamer, but I'd rather have backward compatibility. I have a catalog of over 1,000 PS 1, 2 and 3 games... why would I want to pay to play them again? I understand not everyone's in my situation, and PS Now can fill a gap for them, but for those of us with back catalogs, MS and Nintendo are doing something right that PS could learn from.
Nah... more like the number one "I need hits" website.
What the hell is this?
So because NieR is looking good, we should forget about FF XV? That's a bait headline if I've ever seen one. Play off the popularity of something.
Yeah, but this is N4G... we can't be expected to read past the headlines.
I've gotten to the point to where I read through the comments to get info from someone who actually read the article. I'd rather dig through 1,000 comments than give a hit to some of these sites.
