I said it before. I agree with Satoru Iwata of Nintendo. Prices should reflect the quality of the game and the money spent producing it, prices shouldn't drop within a year of release, and they shouldn't drop much. I would pay more for the original Pikmin or Halo than most of the junk coming out now. It's about enjoyment, not "this is next-gen, so pay me more". I thought Steel Battalion was expensive. Now all games are gonna be priced like that? If you say we can't ...
I could see paying that as a small, independent developer.
I'm not talking about the teams or any communication between them. Who cares? The point is that the company that makes them has the access to the technology involved. Since this is such good technology to have on a console chip, then why wouldn't both teams independently opt for it?
I agree with Iwata about how dumb the depreciation of software is. It's not like a hotdog that will go bad after too long. This is especially true for the Wii. Better and better graphics wouldn't be making the past games any less desireable. I'd like to see more games with low intro costs. Mario Kart DS started at $35, while 3rd party games that are no where near that quality were over $40. Brain Age, etc. are great examples. Better graphics won't hurt them. Prices should start low an...
Since when is it called "copying" when a company (ATI) sells two similar products to two different customers (MS + Nintendo)? That title is misleading. I don't agree with the author about anti-aliasing, either. There is a gigantic difference on a computer monitor. There will be at least a big difference on a TV, whether or not it is HD. AA was not invented for HD.
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?
Think about wax museums. This is still a theory, though.
Hardcore gamers are a minority. They are even a minority in the population of all gamers. Some people don't like meat because they're somehow opposed to it. You seem the same way. We'll be having our steaks and you'll be missing out. Most games will not use intense motion-sensing. Motion-sensing IS limited, that's why the Wii has alternate controllers, controller add-ons, and ports for GC controllers. You have nothing to stand on here.
It'll probably end up that way in the long run... $600 + games = about $800 $800 = 80 gaming sessions
That article wasn't very good or informative. A new rumble pack is nice, but is it anything to get excited about? Not really. Rumble packs already rumble a little for little things and rumble a lot for big things. However, I'm glad Microsoft sees that rumble is way better than no rumble. Next, we need controllers that heat up and cool down, smell like petunias or sweaty men in different games, and taste like a nice hamburger.
The idea was good. Choose one player... The "gimme the ball" button reminds me of good old Nintendo World Cup.
This doesn't say anything about a new PSP, guys. This is about a software pack and discussions about what new software they can or should put on PSP. I agree with the author, though. Sony's ideas are broken. Good luck, young PSP. Fare well, PS3. Sony will not help you.
Good article, bad game.
It doesn't say how many people voted. I could tell it was a low number, though, when I saw that the figures had changed so much already: (Never rely on Google-translation for news) Quelle console de nouvelle-génération vous attire le plus ? (Which new-generation console attracts you the most?) Xbox 360 19% PlayStation®3 48% Nintendo Wii 33%
The best comment on that page: ----------------------- wellsed Says: June 16th, 2006 at 4:04 pm Everyone has a TV or three. Very few have theatres. ----------------------- PS3 is to theatres as 360 is to DVD as Wii is to TV... What a bad analogy for the point he wanted to make. I know all analogies are intrinsically false, but this one is pretty bad. PS3 therefore will be used by a relative few ab...
Haven't played DDR, huh? DDR was popular for a reason, despite that most lazy gamers are against moving further than the fridge. There are other people out there. Don't you get it?
I sure hope online games let you turn the motion-sensitivity off. That way newbies and intermediates alike will be just flying around uselessly and the ones with the option off will pick them off and win every time. A situation much worse than it is already online... and hey, watch the double-post (why not just edit the last one?).
It's called "taking a step back" and then maybe even "getting a piggyback ride for two steps forward".
Is this what we bring as news? The ONLY thing they said was "I really like what Nintendo are doing with the Wii, especially as it should bring in new gamers". One sentence out of a full interview... I think they're sucking up to Nintendo and trying to cause disillusioned PS3 fans, but this news article says next to nothing about the topic.
