Nintendo have done some really questionable things in the past, and it's time someone exposed their not-so-family-friendly past.
This is a really bad list.... but only because the title sucks and is so all encompassing. If it pointed out that the FANBOYS choose to ignore these things, than sure. But otherwise, these things are well known and documented.
Some of the things are really dumb. Especially the connection to the Yakuza. Their reasons are completely baseless, and really idiotic.
“ Once Upon A Time, Nintendo Made Erotic Playing Cards” “ Nintendo Ran A Love Hotel” “ Nintendo Was Associated With Gangsters” “ They Once Had A Cartoon That Was Awful” Wtf? Those aren’t even gaming related. At this point this dumb site is as bad as GamingBolt, if not worst. “ They Charge People To Play Classic Games” In what world do you get to play classic games for free on other console? 🤦♂️
i used to like the Mario cartoon. On friday's they'd have the Zelda cartoon. The yakuza connection was that the Yakuza preferred Nintendo playing cards, and Nintendo did nothing to stop them from buying them...because that's what Nintendo should do for some reason. I'd say most gamers don't realize that nintendo didn't start with computer games. "Love Hotels" aren't illegal, anywhere. Unless they were providing escorts, I don't see the problem. And the last one, yeah, everyone charges for that. No one gives their stuff away for free just because it's old.
Yeah, I'd love for a free service like VC, but I'm willing to pay for the actual games.
I did not ignore those, I chose to ACCEPT.
Omg let's not forget that Nintendo and sony are both in a country that aligned themselves with the nazi's in ww2 while your at it. What a trash article
"It's a patented form of vrs. Do you think that there's just one thing per patient? I could patent a light bulb as long as I designed it different than any other light bulb that's already been patented. Wow as I said you know nothing. Also your argument is invalid simply because there has not even been any info on sony having vrs. Sooo I'm gonna leave ya now unless you have some kind of proof that sony even has vrs. Enjoy your pony " "Historically, PlayStation SDKs have more memory but the same performance as retail units. I don't expect Prospero to be any different. With Microsoft it's a little bit more guesswork. Scorpio SDK was 6.6TF(they had 44 CUs IIRC) but even so, I don't expect major differences there either. BTW, both APUs have variable rate shading, I don't remember if I mentioned that before. I checked the Threadmark and I didn't see it anywhere" https://www.resetera.com/th... Sony also can have ( and MS too ) VRS under different name. LOL at VRS is MS exclusive to Xbox and Sony must pay for it. You just proved how Boners are dumb.
Aww are you following me? I'm going to call you sweet pants from now on gravedigger. So sweet pants your now commenting on something related to Nintendo about something from a whole another article because I make you all hot and sweaty. The comment was that if sony used the same vrs as Microsoft they would have to pay Microsoft, not that if they had vrs in general. So I may be a x boner as you call it, but your definitely flying high on that sony pony aren't ya! Problem with sonys fans is y'all cant read worth a shit
Quote : "So sweet pants your now commenting on something related to Nintendo about something from a whole another article because I make you all hot and sweaty." Just because comments limit was reached. I couldn't make a comment in that thread, so i was looking a thread where you posted recently. Or i could use a PM function. But i chose the recent thread. Sony can use AMD's VRS solution because they're partners or improve it on their own, dumb Xboner. Why Sony must pay MS for VRS? Guess what, VRS is not MS exclusive thing and it never was. Did MS paid Nvidia for VRS? No, dumb Boner, because they have their own VRS solution. Only dumb Xboner can think like that. You're Xboner, but dumb one. No wonder why Xbone is humiliated by PS4 and Switch. Same will happened with next Xbox. You deserve it. And you don't deserve better because you, Xboners are damn delusional beings.
Hey sweatpants what's for dinner? I expect it to be on the table for me in 15min or you go back in the basement
I'm sorry about that sweetpant the damned auto correct. Shame on me for not catching that spelling error sooner. Dinner was great by the way, you get to sleep at the foot of my bed tonight as a reward
Here's one. Nintendo is always a gen or 2 behind yet charge as much as sony and microsoft. If switch were a dedicated home console it would be selling at the pace wii u did. Nintendo was smart merging their handheld fanbase with their failing home console fanbase. if switch is the successor to wii u then whos the successor to the 3ds/ds? I bet many will dance around this one.
“ if switch is the successor to wii u then whos the successor to the 3ds/ds?“ How about the Switch Lite which is a handheld console only?
HA ha ha ha ha...
Instead of saying “hahaha” maybe you should provide an intelligent response to my question.
You know i would if you nintendo marks would accept the fact that nintendo had to merge their strong handheld fanbase with the weak dwindling console fanbase to make it seem like switch is this huge success when in reality is if nintendo launched a real dedicated home console they would be in dead last.
“ You know i would if you nintendo marks would accept the fact that nintendo had to merge their strong handheld fanbase with the weak dwindling console fanbase” So you mean just like Sony did, which they killed their handheld and focus solely on their home console? “ if nintendo launched a real dedicated home console they would be in dead last.” If Sony launches a PS Vita 2 they would be dead last as well. You see? It goes both way. The fact is, each company caters to their strongest strength (Sony: home console, MS: services, Nintendo: hybrid) and there is nothing wrong with that. This is a business, not a race to see which one is the best just to please fanboys.
Hybrid, pfft. Young millennial has alot of learning to do.
“ Hybrid, pfft. Young millennial has alot of learning to do.” So what do you call a console that can be played in both handheld and on TV mode right out of the box without needing to purchase additional accessories?
I hate the fact that there are a couple of legitimate things on this list because now they're gonna be delegitimized by all the bizarre nitpicking in here. -_-
It's Nintendo, all the "old heads" childhood console, so you cant say anything bad about it and it's games.
A couple things on this list are legit, but...there's other stuff on there that makes no sense. I mean, it's cool to know what Nintendo was up to in the 60s, but that doesn't affect us now. I'd love for a VC but where do you get off thinking they should just give away their games for free? That would be like suggesting someone opens up a store and gives its products away for free. I agree that Nintendo fans ignore quite a few things, and they can do better, sure. The insistence on not dropping the price of their games after a certain amount of time has elapsed, like virtually every other company does, is a prime example. But, it seems like you grasped at straws to fill out some of this list.
They don't care. They can't make their stuff fast enough right now. I don't care. My Nintendo experiences through the decades are all good.
I can think of at least one that comes to my mind instantly: putting out hardware for the last 18 years that's laughably last-gen compared to MS's and Sony's products, but that's still sold at infamously high prices. Oh, and the general lack of third-party support. Make that 2 then. Oh, and now charging for online play with hardly any perk. Make that 3, then.
