I think if Nintendo are smart, which they are, they would launch it in October maybe, due to the fact that PS3 comes out in November, and if they were to come out with it the same month as PS3, then 1 of 2 things would happen. 1. PS3 would generate more advertising and bring in a lot of people into buying their system, leaving Wii, to hang out to dry. or 2. The Wii could possibly pull off the impossible and counter-fire Sony's PS3, making Sony not only start off the console war in last place, but with a high mountain to climb to get people to start buying PS3's over Wii's. Personally, if they launch it in October, there doing themselves something good, not only getting it out there a month before PS3, and at a lower cost, they would generate a whole bunch of sales and perhaps making Sony going back to the drawing board to see what they can do to improve sales over Wii and 360

having said all that, Im looking forward to both of them, so I can be one of the few in my town to have all 3 next-gen systems. Thats gonna be cool, when I get one new system PS3, right after I get the Wii.

We will se it even before October. But saying that I think the Wii could damage Sony sales if released at the same time as parents will be attracted by the pricing. Seeing as I can have a 360 and a Wii for the price Of a PS3 I'll probably pick one up.

Do we want a rushed product? The PS2 was rushed and never recovered from faulty components. I'll be happy with my Wii whenever it comes. Nintendo may wait if they're pompous. That could be dangerous, but who's a marketing expert here?

Im just ending my 1st 2 years as a marketing student at my local university, and by the time 2008 rolls along, Ill be up there marketing games and systems like that, so if you've got problems with anything about marketing, just ask me.

Killing Floor at 15 - When a Mod Launched a Critically Acclaimed Series

Zelda Replay: Majora's Mask

VGChartz's Evan Norris: "Is Ocarina of Time as legendary as I remembered it? For the most part, yes. In spite of a handful of missteps — a few obtuse puzzles, some tedious backtracking, and a clunky stealth sequence — I don't believe the last 23 years have been unkind to it. Ocarina remains a brilliant example of the medium, a landmark game that shaped the future of its own franchise and 3D gaming in general. After more than two decades it retains its inventive dungeon design, challenging puzzles, dynamic combat, wistful storyline, unforgettable music, and empowering open-air freedom. I feel confident calling it one of the greatest games of the fifth generation, even if I'm no longer prepared to list it among the five best games ever made."

Pure unadulterated fun. They don't make them like this anymore...especially not the triple A industry.

Back when video rental was a thing, I rented out Majoria's Mask, I never finished it though. I did buy the 3DS version before the eshop shutdown, so maybe one day I'll finally play through the whole thing, it's amazing how well these games hold up though. I briefly played Ocarina of Time for a while and it was really fun.
