The Fatal Frame 2 remake was made and released in Europe and Australia. Makes a welcome change to things when America doesn't get a game.

I had to wait until 2009 for Chrono Trigger to get a release on the DS for PAL regions.

I'm sure you can take this bump. FF5 will probably come out in the west. #1.2.2

Good blog. It's nice to hear a call of sanity sometimes. Just doubt that many people will hear it. My view on Destiny is that it's merely another false dawn for the "next-gen" which makes it about 3 now.

Titanfall, Watch_Dogs and Destiny are all failing to meet the expectations that have been put forth about them and I wonder who's truly to blame for that. Is it the marketing teams hyping them up too much or the gamers who are too ignorant to see past t... #3

will have to check the veracity of claims later. Too busy right now. If they were truly making Wii numbers; why is Sony's shares labelled as junk status? It seems as if investors aren't convinced by these sales figures. Doubt massive sales will happen in Christmas this year as lbp3 ain't gonna push numbers. Destiny also ain't looking great at the moment and people are feeling a tad short changed. #21.2.3

Really? I don't see it. The Wii was selling out way harder than PS4 and it was shifting millions in the USA alone.

Sorry but it's not doing Wii numbers. #21.2.1

It is selling incredibly well considering the lack of software. An incredible triumph in marketing. #21.1.1

@WackyVee "I agree that Zombi U was never gonna be a hit, but I classified it as a meant to be heavy hitter because the Nintendo N4G people wouldn't stop bragging about this game and how clever it was. DK a placeholder, maybe, but Pikmin is the only game I wish was on the PS4 from the Nintendo bunch, I don't understand why there's no love for it."

Zombi U is a good game but the fact of the matter is that Ubisoft overestimated it's appeal. Where are t... #3.3.5

See how long that lasts Dunban. Nintendo will at least support the Wii U while Sony has left the Vita to fester and die. #3.2.2

It's not doing Wii numbers. There's no shortage of PS4s and they are easily available. #21

@WackyVee Shortly after Mario Kart 8's UK launch, it was announced that Wii U console sales had risen 666% in the country, with Mario Kart 8 bundles accounting for 82% of the units sold.

Wouldn't count Pikmin or DK as heavy hitters but more along the lines of placeholders. Still better than anything that the X1 has come out with but I digress.

New Super Mario Bros U is the best selling game on the Wii U with 4.16 million units worldwide. Mario 3D Worl... #3.3.2

Not as big of a failure as the Vita. Dangenrompa definitely saved the Vita didn't it?

It must be great to have a product being fully supported by it's company. #3.2

Umm, the Wii track was utterly insane. People say that selling ten million is a good number for the PS4 but the Wii was selling millions of consoles in months and would've sold more if they didn't struggle to keep up with demand. #1.2.2

It's a sad state of affairs that has inflicted the industry and it's been happening for the longest time. I've fallen out of love for gaming, not just due to the vacuous arguments that have been put forward about sexism, racism in the industry but the lowering of standards that have caused the downfall of various games such as Final Fantasy, Hitman, Thief, Mass Effect etc.

That is more of a widespread problem of the industry attempting to appease as many gamers a... #9

This may be an unpopular opinion but I believe that multi-platform games have been slowly killing the appeal of consoles. Now I know what people will say that gaming is a business at the end of the day but when a game is being put on various platforms; it dilutes a franchise's appeal to a great extent for me personally.

Was it necessary for a game series like Metal Gear Solid; a traditionally Sonyesque game to appear on Microsoft consoles? What about Final Fantasy XIII?... #5

After a year of asceticism, I now stand upon the beach looking out to a never-ending horizon of sea, reflecting the moonlight and my dreams of a better tomorrow. I feel the wind caress my worn skin, I think of the past and I gently whisper something that comes out of my heart.

The Fine Young Capitalists situation is truly shocking. What I find even more reprehensible is the whole hacking and doxing of these people who were trying to raise money for charity by getting women to submit ideas. Targeting a charity is really below the belt at this point and it truly shows up the hypocrisy of gaming journalism by refusing to cover the hacks and giving no coverage to those fellas is a dereliction of duty on their part.

I hate to admit it but I had no idea about this Zoe Quinn debacle until a couple of days ago and I find it another sad footnote on the history of the gaming industry at large, due to the quelling of dissent over so many forums that even 4chan, once the dookiehole of the internet, is censoring anything to do with it.

However, due to the incendiary ramblings that have been shown by willful members on various forums like Gamespot, Reddit, IGN etc; there can never and will never... #9

Oh definitely not. There is a myriad of reasons why the 3rd parties don't like playing ball with Nintendo. You could say that the NES era and their control of cartridges probably put them on bad terms with the 3rd parties, not to mention the limitations of using cartridges for the N64 etc.

But those are tales for another time. #3.7.1

"The first thing people claim is half-hearted attempts, but Tekken Tag Tournament 2, The Lego Games, Sonic Lost World, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Rayman Legends, The Wonderful 101, Sonic All Stars, Darksiders 2, and more are all great games yet they're sales don't reflect that."

Need for Speed, Sonic All Stars, Tekken Tag Tournament and the Lego games were available on other platforms before they were on the Wii U. Darksiders 2 is a sequel to a game series... #3.4.2

If your job told you, you would only be paid 10% - 25% of your normal pay, you wouldn't want to stay either if you had more successful options available to you."

Breaking off content and starting a bidding war between two competitors who are desperate to show some level of difference for consoles who have the exact same multi-platform games? I guess that makes far more sense doing that than making new IPs!

Okay. It's time to have the talk now. I have explained this a million times to gamers who can't seem to grasp why the 3rd parties continually half-ass their games and/or refuse to work with Nintendo and it's because it doesn't matter what Nintendo do. It wouldn't matter if they had the most powerful console on the marketplace or have the best online experience or have the best features because the 3rd parties won't work with them.
