@SpiralTear: "Horsepower doesn't drive third-party support. It never has. If it did, the PS2 wouldn't have been the dominant console in the sixth gen"

That is true when the consoles in question, such as the PS2, can still handle ports of multiplatform games. In that generation, the power gap between the GameCube, Playstation 2, and Xbox wasn't so massive that it prevented third parties from porting games to any systems they wanted to.

I agree that smartphones are a blue ocean right now. Well, as much as now about it anyway, since I don't really know much about smartphones. But one thing I mention in part 2 is how the Wii and DS did influence smartphone design, and smartphone games, which isn't exactly bad for the industry. #13.1
Hey, that's what I said in my article, that 3rd parties ignore Nintendo's consoles (not portables to the same extent) because they don't sell as much there. We agree on that.

I don't *blame* Nintendo for the 3rd party support. I'm saying it's their "fault", because it's the result of their business choices. They chose the blue ocean starting with the DS, it led to weaker systems compared to the competition, and this led to reduced third p... #7.2
Much appreciated. Hopefully you like part 2, which should go up tomorrow and personally I liked much more. #1.1
"Aeron (Pandora's Tower)"


That would not only be a good character in terms of his weaponry and moveset, but it would show Nintendo's commitment to Pandora's Tower as a franchise, which would be absolutely awesome. #11.2
I'd love for Shulk to be in as well. I don't really know if it's unlikely for him to be in, because it doesn't seem to me that these characters get in through popularity or the quality of their design or anything like that. Sometimes it seems arbitrary.

For example, given the rising popularity of Monster Hunter in the west thanks to Nintendo, and the good relationship that Capcom and Nintendo seem to have going on, I would think that putting in a monster hunte... #2.1
Something wrong with being nostalgic for something good of the past? #1.1
That sounds terrible. Mind if I ask for which games you experienced this? #7.1
People don't come from around the world to watch E3 on their computer screens, either. People stay home and watch E3 from their computer screens. E3 show floor presence and what viewers around the world actually see are very different things.

People watching E3 from their homes had gotten used to E3 being all about the conferences. The big takeaway from any year's E3 was either a game's CG trailer, or one of the company's saying something silly that the fans l... #2.1
It's hard to say it was a mistake when they wouldn't make it otherwise. They make it on Nintendo systems because it's cheaper for them; if it wasn't this cheap, maybe they wouldn't make them at all. Hell, right now they're ignoring the Wii U and focusing on the 3DS, so there's little reason to assume they would have made the series on PS3 and PS4 when they could just put it on PSP and PSV.

Monster Hunter 4 wouldn't be on PS4, it would be on PSV... #4.5
I like both the 3D and the HD graphics. I wish they gave us options, because most of the people I play with refuse to get it if it's not on Wii U. #1.1.2
Thank you for this post. The understanding that others may benefit from the options is all I hope to get from this article, both from readers and from Nintendo. #6.1
There are easy ways to get around this problem.

1) only allow voice chat in private matches with friends.

2) lock all voice chat functionality behind a parent-lock function.

3) Move on from the 90s. Videogames are such a huge force in the industry that angry soccer moms can't easily pressure congress into holding videogame companies responsible for content children are exposed to, given that such content comes with a warning ("the on... #5.3
Like I posted in the article, I'd like to see them bring me and my cross-country friends and family together physically if they can. Mike from Philadelphia sure isn't going to come over to Texas to play Mario Kart 8. #4.1
They hold local multiplayer on such a high pedestal that it blinds them from other opportunities. Honestly, I've had a few times when online multiplayer games with friends have been as great as any local multi session - but not thanks to Nintendo. I've got Monster Hunter, Need for Speed, and Call of Duty to thank for that instead. But adding Smash Bros and Mario Kart 8 to that mix would be such a huge deal. #1.1
@deafdani Fair enough. I am excited for whatever they make next, at this point they've learned so much that it's bound to be good. The more ambitious it is, the better, too. #2.1.4
The article doesn't ask for them to make another Metroid: Prime, or Metroid anything. You are right that Prime 2 and 3 weren't as ambitious as the first one, but that doesn't help the case for Donkey Kong Country: Returns and Tropical Freeze. It's 2 unambitious games being followed by two even more unambitious games.

The article calls for Retro Studios to regain their ambition. It's not about Donkey Kong, or Metroid, or a new IP. It's about Retro Studi... #8.1
@deafdani: regardless of my analogy not being terribly accurate, you seemed to have gotten my point anyway. Yes, Retro makes the best 2D platforming game that has possibly ever been made. But is this a worthy tradeoff for not making a completely unique and mindblowing game like they did before with the first Metroid Prime? Some think it is a worthy tradeoff, but I personally didn't, and I don't doubt many others agree. #2.1.2
I'm sure it was, but the doubts were certainly there for a time among gamers. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze does speak for itself, as its quality is immense; but it's like congratulating an internationally acclaimed master chef for making a great burger. Lots of chefs can make a great burger. I wish this internationally acclaimed master chef had made something that no one else can make. #2.1
Miyamoto recently said something about games like F-Zero not coming. He said that, internally, Nintendo has been deciding to make the games for their own franchises themselves instead of handing them to 2nd party devs, like they've done before.

I think this is awful. Nintendo would get many more games on their systems, and much more experimentation and variety, if they were more eager to hand out their franchises. Many of Nintendo's best titles have come from working... #3
