Just reading Dean Takahashi's Book about the 360.  All these years I wondered why Microsoft did not buy Sega or Square to help them along (those companies being the most obvious targets given their financial condition at the time) -- apparently they did try to buy Sega, Square and Nintendo when they first got the XBOX rolling.  Apparently Japan doesn't favor the gaijin.

Crazy possibilities.  This wasn't just a speculative, "hey what do you think of buying Square" kinda thing, they were in meetings with all three of these companies to discuss the possibilities.

Anyhooo, it is a good read, as was his previous book about the Xbox, available from the VGPress store:

And the funny thing is none of these companies would have fared well on the Xbox since the Xbox pretty much had the PC audience on a console instead of the usual console crowd. SEGA released a bunch of their best last-gen games on XBOX regardless (making me wonder if they were paid for) and they all bombed hard.

Square continued to find great success with Sony despite getting raped making their foolishly expensive FF movies while not taking anywhere near the chanced on new IP or smaller IP's that they usually do.

And Nintendo......well I can't even imagine such an independant company allowing themselves to be bought by MS while they were and are still a major console maker. From what I've heard, Nintendo pretty much laughed at them. Then I guess they allowed them to buy Rare later on, as some kind of consolation prize. And look how great Rare has done?

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the WORST written review of ALL TIME ! ! !

_____________________

It all starts out like this:

"It isn't often we'll see two Zelda efforts on a single platform.  NES had it, Game Boy Color had it, GameCube sort of had it, but unless you count ports, remakes, or the trilogy of face-palm proportions on CD-i, there really haven't been many times in history when Zelda fans could expect multiple iterations of the green-clad hero on one platform."**

_____________________

Goes on to say this:

"When it comes to general travel and "out of tower" gameplay, Spirit Tracks is a mix of both amazingly inspired, classic Zelda action, and some segments that should have simply been left on the cutting room floor. True statement: The game runs over 25 hours from front to end. Unfortunate reality: A good fifth of that could have been cut out to better pace the experience. Spirit Tracks is never dull, it's never boring, but it does border on monotonous at times, and while there's always strong writing, beautiful music, and new locales to experience, the designers seem to revel in sending you on ping pong quests, bouncing you from location to location to solve otherwise mudane tasks. Want to get to the fire temple? Tough break, kid: there's a lava river in the way. Don't worry, you're just a five minute drive to the ice village where ice can be made to cool the lava. That is, you can make ice after you take somebody from the ice village to the forest where fresh water can be found; don't want to be making dirty ice. Delivered him there? Nice! Come back later and you can get the ice. Go kill some time. Oh, you made it back to the fire world with the ice? Congrats, it's time to move on. Unless you want to do it all over again in a side quest, that is."

_____________________

And then finishes off with this:

9.3

Outstanding

_____________________

What a horribly written bunch of contradictions! Why didn't he just end with: "OK, Nintendo, you got your 9+ review. Now gimme my money-hat!"

_____________________

**Ummm... Wuh? That's almost totally wrong! Way to start a review Bozo(n)!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the WORST written review of ALL TIME ! ! !

 Your memory is short, and your concept of time depleted.  Lest we forget 1up's review of Team Fortress 2

Grenade-free Team Fortress? Ain't that a teat-less Holstein (as the red-vs.-blue FPS's hayseed Engineer would word it)? A refresher in two shakes for the rusty: Each and every class in 1999's Team Fortress Classic packed pineapples and -- Sniper excluded -- a second, role-specific bomb. The latter individualized kits and gave the game a fingerprint identifiable in any suspect pool: ultramobility on maps blueprinted to act as both runway and launching pad. To blow the lid on my bias, this is mostly a Scout- and Medic's-eye view. But then these were "my" classes. If you played, you had yours, too, because just like an arcade fighting game -- Street Fighter II, Tekken, whatever -- that's how it worked. Nine years (as Valve managing director Gabe Newell reminds us in Team Fortress 2's rich commentary mode) is a whole hell of a lot of time to wear one pair of sneakers. No replacement's a comfier fit, no matter how much nicer it is.
And yes, I was there in the GameSpot thread, putting it through Babelfish translator.

Bozon's a pretty good reviewer, IMO. Still a poorly review written review for Spirit Tracks, but I think Bozon is at least one of the better IGNorant reviewers.

With that said, I think a game can still be great even with contradicting points. I mean, no game is perfect. Maybe the good outweighs the bad, I don't know. What was weird is how he said he'd prefer the game to be shorter. I mean, doesn't everyone want to get their money's worth with a lengthy adventure?

Whatever. I'm still picking it up. I was very disappointed with Phantom Hourglass so I hope Spirit Tracks rights the many wrongs. I'm dying to play another great handheld Zelda so I hope Spirit Tracks is just that. I still don't like the forced stylus controls but as long as it enhances the puzzles of this game, I guess I can be cool with that.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the WORST written review of ALL TIME ! ! !

Your memory is short, and your concept of time depleted.  Lest we forget 1up's review of Team Fortress 2

Grenade-free Team Fortress? Ain't that a teat-less Holstein (as the red-vs.-blue FPS's hayseed Engineer would word it)? A refresher in two shakes for the rusty: Each and every class in 1999's Team Fortress Classic packed pineapples and -- Sniper excluded -- a second, role-specific bomb. The latter individualized kits and gave the game a fingerprint identifiable in any suspect pool: ultramobility on maps blueprinted to act as both runway and launching pad. To blow the lid on my bias, this is mostly a Scout- and Medic's-eye view. But then these were "my" classes. If you played, you had yours, too, because just like an arcade fighting game -- Street Fighter II, Tekken, whatever -- that's how it worked. Nine years (as Valve managing director Gabe Newell reminds us in Team Fortress 2's rich commentary mode) is a whole hell of a lot of time to wear one pair of sneakers. No replacement's a comfier fit, no matter how much nicer it is.
And yes, I was there in the GameSpot thread, putting it through Babelfish translator.

WTF?

_____________________

It all starts out like this:

"It isn't often we'll see two Zelda efforts on a single platform.  NES had it, Game Boy Color had it, GameCube sort of had it, but unless you count ports, remakes, or the trilogy of face-palm proportions on CD-i, there really haven't been many times in history when Zelda fans could expect multiple iterations of the green-clad hero on one platform."**

_____________________

Goes on to say this:

"When it comes to general travel and "out of tower" gameplay, Spirit Tracks is a mix of both amazingly inspired, classic Zelda action, and some segments that should have simply been left on the cutting room floor. True statement: The game runs over 25 hours from front to end. Unfortunate reality: A good fifth of that could have been cut out to better pace the experience. Spirit Tracks is never dull, it's never boring, but it does border on monotonous at times, and while there's always strong writing, beautiful music, and new locales to experience, the designers seem to revel in sending you on ping pong quests, bouncing you from location to location to solve otherwise mudane tasks. Want to get to the fire temple? Tough break, kid: there's a lava river in the way. Don't worry, you're just a five minute drive to the ice village where ice can be made to cool the lava. That is, you can make ice after you take somebody from the ice village to the forest where fresh water can be found; don't want to be making dirty ice. Delivered him there? Nice! Come back later and you can get the ice. Go kill some time. Oh, you made it back to the fire world with the ice? Congrats, it's time to move on. Unless you want to do it all over again in a side quest, that is."

_____________________

And then finishes off with this:

9.3

Outstanding

_____________________

What a horribly written bunch of contradictions! Why didn't he just end with: "OK, Nintendo, you got your 9+ review. Now gimme my money-hat!"

_____________________

**Ummm... Wuh? That's almost totally wrong! Way to start a review Bozo(n)!

I finished Assassin's Creed 2 today. I love that after the big revelation at the end, the first words out of the main characters mouth is "What the fuck?!". Metal Gear should have used that line more often. Bring on Assassin's Creed 3.

Hearing you say that makes me a little more interested in the game.  I have the PS3 AC and have not touched it.  Did you review the first one?

Clipped for your pleasure:
Here are Pachter's November hardware sales predictions:

Wedbush Morgan:

DS - 1,535,000
Wii - 1,050,000
PS3 - 700,000  
Xbox 360 - 650,000
PSP - 290,000
PS2 - 175,000



Electronic Entertainment Design and Research (EEDAR) analyst Jesse Divnich also passed along his NPD November forecast for comparison. Divnich is expecting higher Wii console sales, with the gap between PS3 and Xbox 360 to be closer.

EEDAR

DS - 1,580,000
Wii - 1,200,000
PS3 - 725,000
Xbox 360 - 700,000
PSP - 270,000
PS2 - 200,000


NPD is expected to release its official numbers this Thursday on December 10.
and this to chew on:
                  Nintendo's New Super Mario Bros. Wii has sold 936,734 units in its first week in Japan -- the biggest debut to date for a Wii title in that country.
