Contra, castlevania, axelay, turtles in time, batman returns, metal gear, pro evolution, silent hill, dance stage, how can one company own so many good IP's and do NOTHING.
Oh no, wait. Sega have managed that feet better than anyone else. Maybe that's the new industry trend, to slowly die from within through ineffectual leadership

NX cannot come soon enough.
Which is a shame. The wii u, in my opinion is THE best home console ever made. However it's spec and timing could not have been worse. They hung onto the success of the wii far too long. If they'd have launch the wii u in 2010 wed have seen games like battlefield, CoD and GTA V being proposed for it no problem. Sounds ridiculous but very very much more than possible, if not true.

Launching a new platform that is comparatively and seriously underpowered just as all third parties start to focus on the higher powered and (considered) next gen, they instantly count themselves out of a lot of new software. The wii u will continue to demonstrate the sheer quality of nintendo's software developers for the next year, more importantly I hope the wii u gives nintendo the experience it requires to hone it's skills in HD, digital media and online infrastructure so that when NX arrives, it becomes everything that Wii U should have been and then some.

The 2016/2017 release window for NX gives nintendo an edge for the first time in a long time as the most powerful console available. Taking that mantel leaves no trump card with any other console As quality and innovation have been nintendos trump cards since 1983.

I only hope zelda is delayed for redevelopment as an NX launch title. There would be no bigger warning shot from Nintendo than having the biggest and most stunning game they've ever produced to lead the charge of NX. A tactic they should have employed with skyward sword. Releasing such an amazing game so late when the user base of wii had dropped off majorly when it could have been a wii u launch game a year later instead of mario bros u was a huge missed opportunity.

Come on NX. We believe in nintendo, always have always will, it's down to NX to wake up the masses as to why we bleed red and white.

@Kilroy a third party would work the port from original code. Disney and lucasarts will own the rights to the game itself and it's code. Like nintendo with donkey kong country. They own the licence? They own the game. Irrespective of who developed it.

Gamecube titles needing HD rremakes:
Legend of Zelda: The Twilight Princess
Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
Eternal Darkness
F-Zero GX
Ikaruga
Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
Luigi's Mansion
Super Mario Sunshine
1080 Avalanche
Wave Race: Blue Storm
Baten Kaitos

Giving us all the already made resident evil HD remakes goes without saying.

@AugustusOxy that is nowhere near close enough to a similar situation. People showing videos of copyrighted intellectual properties in a public domain without prior consent AND making money from advertising during the airing of that content is the same as; Putting on your own production of the lion king at your local theatre and charging for drinks and snacks then wondering why disney kick your door down. Copyright is statute law. If you infringe on that copyright; not only that, you profit from it, you deserve every court you get your arse kicked round for being so conceited and deluded self importance, for thinking you have every "right" to do what you are doing.

I don't care either way, this doesn't apply to nintendo solely, it is ALL copyrighted material. The fact nintendo fail to see this as free marketing for them is besides the point. Legally, they are 100% right in what they are doing and their approach.
Thinking outside the box on this one may have steered them a different way though.

@Rafie producing is funding, but is funding to such a percentage that they get production credit. My point was that ALL third party games CAN go mtiformat, not that they all have. Plenty of third party stayed on one format. The potential on return has to warrant the new development costs, which is why it took GTA III onwards so long to go multi platform.

Because it will happen. EVERYTHING third party goes multiformat.
GTA was part funded by Sony as was red dead. They ended up on Xbox. Splinter cell was massively funded by Microsoft and it was that single game that saved Xbox. THAT ended up on everything. The fact it's even on pc from day one goes to show that comment is void. It can and will end up on other consoles after their exclusivity deal expires. That could be three years, could be 12 months nobody will know until it is announced for other formats in the future.

Oh no, wait. They sent me an email at 2:52 to say they'd gone up early! T***S!!
I was driving and made sure I got where I was going so could check in for just before 3! How am I suppose to read my f******g email while I'm driving. Why change something so last minute when you'd told everybody something so specific that was planned for 3!!!!??? It will have been the scalpers hovering for the first split second too.
If not clear. I am in a totall rage at nintendo for this and think they are disgusting

That was a total joke and a load of..... Endless words I'd get banned if I typed them.

Had alarms in my phone and everything and was checking from just before 3 and BOTH were sold out. How the hell was I suppose to order them? Why put them up early? Absolutely ridiculous

@SlicingScyther were you talking about mortgages, mortgage insurance and community fees you'd have a point.
Unfortunately we're talking about company trying to sell consumer goods and promote digital distribution. Therefore taking a stance of "well don't buy it then" won't really be something that features in their mission statement. But does seem to crop in nintendos business models from time to time either through oversights or thoughtlessness.

These bundles are sour cream.
I buy all games from eshop. Where is my option to buy digital and get the ink squid!? That's a massive flaw in nintebdo pushing eshop and these retail bundles. They want me to buy two copies of the game or something? Where is my option to buy digital and get all three amiibos?

DESS-M-8 commented on Retrospective: Sega's Streets of Rage Series:

Streets of rage would benefit massively from a full reboot, if done right I would buy day one at full retail price too. The sticking point is Sega and how bad a developer and publisher they are. An ex-head of sega of America was quoted as saying "what's that?" when a streets of rage reboot was offered as an idea at one point.

Done as a modern day take on the genre with a full roaming city.
The BEST developer for this would be Rocksteady and to literally port the Arkham City fighting mechanics. Add in online multiplayer or local two player on wii u (one on TV, one on gamepad) attack the city independently or as a team working toward coordinated goals.
Streets of Rage WOULD work incredibly well with the Arkham architecture, except zero the puzzles and sneaking, turn up the violence, blood, bone cracking, beat tempo of backing music and the number of enemies To enable insane combo levels and added scenery interaction. Slammed heads through burnout cars, rising knuckle someone through a phone box, building falling down behind you as you sprint out headlong into another 100 man street fight

@BenAV nobody knows you're right, I'd say it will be late 2017 at the latest though. And it will be BIG.
The wii u is a stop gap system.
It is becoming more and more apparent that nintendo, with their soft launch, low investment and apprehension to really push the system that they are using it as a testing ground for ideas as they develop the NX.

DESS-M-8 commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@MasterBlaster you're either ten years old or a grown adult and work in a high street store or some equally mindless job and have no real grasp on how any real world industry works.
Nintendo had operational games built with preliminary N64 architecture in 1993, had the hardware built for arcade in 1994, demoed fully working first and third party titles in 1995, released in UK in 1997. All the while games were launching on SNES into 1998.
Where is my theory so wildly ludicrous? Have you heard the term R&D? Do you think these departments shut down for 5 years once a new console is released? They are put in a cupboard until somebody decides there's 12 month left in the current system?????
Wake up, grow up and shut up. Pick one or all three, you'd benefit greatly from any combination.

I'd rather see conker with his frying pan and alternate costumes as specials such as the saving private Ryan and matrix parodies.
I'd like to see this followed by the emergence of banjo, Banjo tooie, conker, battletoads in battlemaniacs, killer instinct, killer instinct gold, blastcorps and perfect dark all being released on virtual console

NX can't release quick enough for me. This generation has been a total flop, with Wii u as the best format out of the new 3.
Xbox one - wouldn't touch with a bullet.
Ps4 - Had one, sold one, never again.
Wii u - awesome machine, awesomely overlooked and underused.

NX could/should be the start of a true next generation. Not the jon snowed results of lots of different ideas not fully realised. That goes for all formats.
Best format of last decade? 3DS
