Nintendo are gearing up for a huge year, surely their biggest in the last decade; with the Wii U not selling as Nintendo wished and while the 3DS is selling a fair amount but nothing close to the original DS; Nintendo have it all to do.
1. sell it for $299 and be as powerful as the ps4. 2. make it region free. 3. keep online multiplayer free. 4. launch the system with zelda and a brand new 3d mario game. 5. every 3 months have a aaa exclusive game come out either by nintendo or a third party publisher or partners with nintendo. 6. have the system launch with a standard controller. 7. make sure all major publishers support it and make it easy to port games like the new call of duty, assassins creed ect.
#1 That is an outrageously ridiculous demand. No one, not even Sony, would be able to sell a system more powerful than the PS4 for less than $500, and you want Nintendo to do it for nearly half that cost? Be sensible, please. That's just impossible. #2 Yes. Not essential, but it would definitely be a HUGE help for the system. #3 YES. ALL OF MY YES. Online multiplayer should always be free. #4 Expecting a bit too much on that front, since Zelda U should be releasing before the NX does and it would take a bit of time to make another one specifically for the NX launch, but a new Mario would be great. #5 Again, might be asking a bit much, there. It would be nice, but I wouldn't count on it, after how third parties treated Nintendo the past three gens. #6 I'd be fine with that, but only if it also has BC with the Wii U so that I can continue using the game pad. Otherwise, I want something different again, even if it's smaller. If I want a boring controller, I'll go back to playing on my PS3; I appreciate new and different ways of playing that still incorporate all the familiar functions of a standard controller. #7 Rather than that, I would prefer that Nintendo start requiring third parties to bring out the newest of their games, with full content parity. We've had enough of half-assed old ports thanks to the Wii U; I want third parties to do something other than ports that have no differentiating factors. If they want to sell big on NX, they need to give those Nintendo versions of their multiplats something different to set them apart, something that will draw gamers to said games. A lot of those that don't like Nintendo may disagree with me on this, but it's a fact that without some sort of priority or exclusive content, no one outside of Nintendo fans will get an NX for third party multiplats. Nintendo needs to take that step and demand that third parties do something to draw people to their games on the system, even if third party lovers that hate Nintendo don't like the idea of a Nintendo version getting content the others don't.
@wonderfulmonkeyman "#1 That is an outrageously ridiculous demand. No one, not even Sony, would be able to sell a system more powerful than the PS4 for less than $500" the ps4 is currently $350, by the time the nx comes out it could be $299. what are you talking about? i also said as powerful, not more powerful. "#4 Expecting a bit too much on that front, since Zelda U should be releasing before the NX does and it would take a bit of time to make another one specifically for the NX launch, but a new Mario would be great." personally i think they will do a simultaneous launch like they did with the last one. i have a feeling even star fox is getting the nx treatment. nintendo knows the wii u is failing so they will allocate all resources to the new console. "#5 Again, might be asking a bit much, there. It would be nice, but I wouldn't count on it, after how third parties treated Nintendo the past three gens." they need a steady flow of titles. something that has burdened them for years is getting decent content throughout the year. they know it. "#6 I'd be fine with that, but only if it also has BC with the Wii U so that I can continue using the game pad." that's fine but i want a standard controller, not costs to rise because of a gimmick that is forced. "Nintendo needs to take that step and demand that third parties do something to draw people to their games on the system" they will lead with first party and hopefull;y everything else will come into place. trouble for them is once again they are releasing it midcycle to the others who already have an established userbase. nintendo should strive to be more than a supplementary console to the ps4 or xbox one or pc.
1. Make Gaming Great Again 2. Make Gaming Fun Again 3. Make Gaming Sexy Again 4. 1080p 60fps 5. 4K/3D/VR with supplemental computing device 6. The Easier Console to make games for developers, developers, developers. 7. Xenoblade X NX Graphics Upgrade, Realistic Graphics, Realistic Day-Night Cycles. 8. Bigger, Better, Funnier Splatoon NX 9. NX Console $199/$259 10. NX supplemental computing device/external gpu R9 380 $199 (Higher Graphics Option) R9 390 $299 R9 390X $399 R9 Fury Nano $499 (Sharper + Higher Graphics Option) It's actually quite wise for Nintendo to call it supplemental to avoid confusion.
Launch with a new 3D Mario game that is more SM64 type and less galaxy/3D world (Big and mysterious hub but closed off levels for lots of platforming and wall jumping opportunities) and have it be lush and atmospheric by making it not just a graphical showcase for the system, but raises the bar of 3D game presentation for the entire generation. Also give the levels rich and varied tone (even SM64 gave you a spook during the haunted house levels/3rd bowser battle level) http://www.superluigibros.c... http://www.hanging-waters.c...
I always hear this but galaxy is pretty much the same as SM64, they both have hub worlds you explore to find the levels and they both play the same sure it's on a Wii remote but Mario moves and controls pretty much exactly the same. Ie perfect the Mario Galaxy games are timeless classics I personally prefer 1 but 2 still great and happily would play a number 3 they are like the modern day Sm64 can't keep going back to castle everytime but as I've actually played both properly or 120 stars etc Mario Galaxy one is a classic sure it's different learning to go round planets but stick with it like any other Mario platformers requires practice to get better not patience as its not gimped or botched in anyway just needs some taking used to, crazy I know but it's not been done in other games of course it's gonna take some getting used to but yeah think Mario 64 and Galaxy 1 are very similar in their ways except for the obvious ones set in the castle on is in the Galaxy ;)
Iwata before he sadly passed did say that he wants Nintendo to have a steady flow of titles, so that there isn't long gaps between games like there is with the Wii U and 3DS!
How should Nintendo launch NX? Quickly!
