False. Nintendo always realizes that handheld are a different beast. That is why the handeld get different games than the consoles. You almost never get console ports on the handhelds.

  1. I In regards to consoles, yes the Wii sold a ton but AS I SAID, it sold a ton to people who don't really care about Nintendo or consoles in general and HAVE MOVED ON. That fad is over.

People moved on? Where do you base this on?

edgecrusher said:

  1. It didn't sell because it was the best console or because the majority of game fanatics liked it. It sold because old people and trendy casuals thought it was neat to play Wii Sports and swing your arms around. It didn't sell because of Nintendo's IP's....if that was the case, the Gamecube and Wii U would have sold roughly as well as the Wii. So again, does Nintendo have to rely on some gimmick becoming a fad to sell a good amount of consoles these days?

Edge maybe you should look at how muck NSMBWii and Mario Kart has sold on the Wii? If you make claims, give we some facts, numbers, anything. This will make your argument stronger!

I base it on Wii U selling 9 million units and Nintendo developing mobile games.

Who cares what they sold? Does their sales disprove the fact that the Wii was a fad? If so, why haven't those franchises done the same numbers on the Wii U? And why hasn't the Wii U itself at least come close to matching Wii's sales? Or even Gamecube's?

I guess you can go either way on this one...hell I remember having arguments on the old Gamespot boards over this topic, over 10 years ago.

Where have the years gone...  wink  Good to see that at least some things remain the same.

edgecrusher said:

Personally, I think Nintendo would be amazing as a 3rd-party and really can't even be compared to SEGA.

#1: They're smarter than SEGA. They know how to make AAA software and their games have a ton more appeal than SEGA's games ever have. That's basically why they're still able to make consoles in the first place. Any new game from Nintendo's franchises on another console would instantly be one of the biggest games of the year on that console...and then of course you'd have Sony or Microsoft helping them out by doing some actual REAL marketing. Their games would just be opend up to a bigger userbase, and probably a lot of people who would like to play their stuff but just didn't want to buy a Nintendo console to do it.

I'm not so sure if their games would sell better on the competitions hardware.  Face it, Nintendo sells to 2 kinds of people.  Long time fans and kids.  Most long time fans will buy their consoles regardless, and kids will get their grubby little hands on them as well because they're kids and get spoiled by their parents.  Do you really think that the people playing COD will buy the next Zelda game, or even a Mario platformer?

Also, having their own console also gives extra importance to each game they release.  They're the top dog in their own ecosystem.  Throw them out in the jungle of Sony and MS's consoles, and they're just some other developer vying for your money and attention.  Their games won't have the same impact.  They better also sell a lot more, because development will be much more costly on more expensive hardware.

edgecrusher said:

#2: They have a shitload more money than SEGA. Let's face it, this matters. And they wouldn't have to invest tons of money into hardware anymore.

Money they earned not only with Mario and Pokémon, but by making profit of off every piece of hardware sold and from other publishers paying them a royalty for every game sold on their system.

edgecrusher said:

#3: Other studios would be much more open to working with Nintendo and having Nintendo publish THEIR games, or develop games jointly...knowing they had the PS or Xbox userbase to work with. It would be pretty awesome to see some of the guys at Nintendo able to work with any studio in the world on various projects.

That's about the only good thing that could come from them going 3rd party.  They could become a large publisher.  But upturning the table on everything Nintendo does today, in hopes for being able to become a leading 3rd party publisher?  Doesn't sound like a good business plan to me.

I just ran through a Google search for the game lengths of every 360 & PS3 Game that I still need to finish. And I'm pretty happy that at least half of my games shouldn't take more than 10 hours each. Hell, a handful are only 5 hours long.

Just knowing I have so many games that can be burned through quickly makes me feel better.

Game Under Podcast Ep. 67 Foolz and Aspro redefine podcasting excellence. E3, Witcher 3 and a stolen mp3 to end it all.

I've been listening to Ep.67, and so far I am not, I repeat, NOT liking it.  I'm 4 minutes in and not only did nobody bring up the worldwide superiority of Belgian Chocolat (very intently so with a capital C) while on the topic, but I have also discovered a huge bias towards certain new forumites.  I myself, as part of the rather new generation forumite union, feel that this discrimination, in which certain new forum members are explicitly welcomed into a certain cummunity on certain podcasts, whilst others are not, is in itself a disgrace.  It is a blemmish on the sincerity and credibility of podcasts.  Not only this certain podcast that I speak of now, but podcasts worldwide.  This is podcastgate material right here!

I shall now go back to older recordings of a certain podcast from 2 years ago to verify this vile behaviour, as to make sure I'm not making an utter and pompeous ass out of myself, ranting on without having double checked my facts.

I hold little hope for the remaining 94 minutes.

Also, you'd be surprised how happy something as simple as a background theme for your 3DS can make you!

I browse the 3DS Theme Store every once in a while just to change up the look of my system for the fun of it...

I have 3 Themes in rotation right now:

Azure Striker Gunvolt

Fantasy Zone

Space Harrier

I have the Majoras Mask Theme. Its pretty badass....definitely better than looking at the plain jane 3ds background.

I wish you could do themes on the Wii U in replacement of the Mii crap.

There's a pretty cool variety of themes too:

If you're cool and like Harvest Moon, they have:

If you're a Pokemon or XenoBlade fan:

If you're one of the two people that bought Splatoon and have a 3DS:

If you're a Monster Hunter fanatic:

Smash Bros.:

...or if you're a self-hating, masochistic, Miami-based Wesker fan:
