I don't think Nintendo needs to invest money in buying more studios. They should invest that money in paying big third party games to appear on their system (They can have exclusive deals but they need them to appear first). One of the biggest issues Nintendo has and will ever face is lack of support by third parties. Now this could be done to power differences or they don't sell well on Nintendo systems but Nintendo needs to sort it out. #3.1
"This is more of a preference than a necessity. Although we would love to see game cartridges come back, we also know that disks are cheaper to produce. Nowadays you can easily store massive amounts of data on a Flash drive. Nintendo could incorporate something similar to a DS/3DS cart, but slightly bigger. Think of a 3.5” Floppy Disk and you can kind of imagine what I’m envisioning"

You are mad. That is the worst idea I have ever heard. Nintendo needs to go the ot... #1
It isn't as black and white as that especially with the hypocrisy with media outlets for the exact issue you raised with Super Mario Galaxy 2 (They would mark games down for that exact reason but not others)

Personally, I think (now this is a sweeping statement) both reviewed much higher scores than they should be (in GTA's case apart from 3 I struggle to find reason to warrant such a high score) #2
I don't foresee mass adoption of VR and AR in this generation. Maybe next but I see the VR craze sticking on the PC side before migrating over (partly due to expense). #2.2
"MS CAN make the exact same claim about taking a loss on most titles, that is not a Sony exclusive idea or concept. It's an industry wide reality."

It isn't an industry wide practice. Far from it. Things that don't make money are discarded and never seen from again. What Sony claims to do goes against the norm and logic.

Microsoft could make that claim but that claim would be hardier to justify in light of how the 360 life played out. Ov... #3.1
And Microsoft didn't at their press conference? A lot of what Microsoft showed (especially the live demos and non CGI trailers) were third party. Sony is in the position Microsoft was last generation. Where the majority of third party sales will come to their system instead of their competitor. That is why Sony is making a big deal about it. Granted I believe both showed too little in terms of exclusives but I wasn't expecting it either since most of the games are 2015 and beyond #1.1.1

We are barely 9 months in (where Sony has released one major franchise and one less but still fairly big major franchises which seemed to get more love). Also Sony is in a position where they don't need to rush out their first party games. These last couple of months have kind of gone their way.

Lets, also, not forget the wasteland that is 2014. Both Sony and its nearest competitor Microsoft have fairly limited 2014 fall exclusives. 2015 is the year of the games (somethin... #2
Goats. The new white attractive male protagonist :p #48
I seriously need to get this game. No idea why I havent yet #73

You also have forgotten Crytek UK's most recent activity. These are the guys who made Haze and Crysis 3.

Like when people quote Rare as being an amazing studio (because of what it has made in the past) you have to look at their most recent games to see how good they are. The last Timesplitters' game was around 9 going on 10 years ago. Recently Crytek UK have shown a poor track record with making great games. You are only as good as what you... #1.1.6
How? It isn't that popular (hence the downfall) nor is it useful for Sony (They tend not to use it).

If Crytek is going down they will go down and be chopped up like what happened to THQ. No company is going to buy another with alledged financial difficulties. Not only would these need to be payed off but putting a company within the first party organisation would cost (since you have to pay for heads who aren't needed or pay for the layoffs). All these companies wan... #1.1.1
AC 3's use of history is fairly debatable. AC 3 probably had less historical accuracy than previous AC games (which weren't great either. So I don't see how it was meaningful #2
Not really. Nintendo is talking about the fear of such devices and Nintendo putting phone capabilities in its handheld (even though they don't remotely hint at it) won't stop the hand me down smartphone problem #1.1
Thanks. One thing that I believe may make me a little bit bias is that I have played the previous game so a lot of that initial wow factor with the bullet cam is lost. Also I found it to be a better game. If you ever get the chance try Sniper Elite V2. It has glaring issues that shouldn't be there but it was fun to play (I found it more fun than this one) #1.1
Unlikely. They will introduce a slim when sales start to loose pace and when they can make it cheaper than the current PS4. It will have nothing to do with the PS4 #32
There isn't much they could do. Emulating a 360 and PS3 requires a huge amount of power. This is especially true for emulating the PS3 which is on a completely different architecture.

The development cost of a good enough emulator would be huge. Look at the PS3. It had to have a PS2 inside the PS3 to keep costs down and that push the system into the ridiculous expense category (of which Sony acknowledged by removing the PS2 component in future versions). #1.2.4
It is pokemon really that has secured Nintendo's position in the handheld market. Also, like you said, handheld sell much better to a younger crowd (and I think I read somewhere a more female crowd but that was a while ago and so may not be as true anymore).

I think people do underestimate the impact mobile gaming has had on the handheld market. The 3DS is not going to sell similar figures to the DS and if we go back to when both these systems launched, they both struggl... #1.6.1
One thing that is going to hold Ultra HD back is TV not jumping onto it as streaming that content would be difficult. The consoles are never going to be able to do this Ultra definition anyway but that isn't going to matter if Ultra HD TV sets stay at the high price. They are going to stay at the high price for a lot longer if TV doesn't jump onto the bandwagon. 1080p is cheap and enough to watch TV so the majority of consumer just won't jump across (which then means the manufactu... #3
It could actually mean a bigger adoptions since the price will be more manageable. You could rent for an entire generation (or when the console becomes cheap enough) at even though you could spend a lot more on it you wouldn't feel it as much since a bit goes out every time. It is a good idea

I hope this is the first step to finance driven schemes with consoles. I want a system like we have with phones. You pay a monthly contract. I know some places do it but it still isn... #4.1
Not only is that perfect conditions and the sever was right next to the PC (probably even wired to it) but the demo was dubious with with what they were comparing it too. I find it hard to believe that PC (of which was quite powerful) could not support that demo without frame rate drops (at one point the camera pans away on the server demo to do something completely different).

But the main point is, there is a vast difference with something working in ideal conditions and wo... #1.4.1
