Flashman commented on 3DS Hardware Sales Continue to Rise in Japan, ...:

Lets be honest the sales are appalling everywhere not just in Japan & whilst I don't want to sound defeatist, I honestly don't think the list of titles coming out over winter will make much difference. I admit it might lift sales short term I can't see Wii U standing up to PS4 & Xbox One.

Flashman commented on Say Hello To The Nintendo 2DS - A 3DS without 3D:

I thought it was a joke at first. But from reading I gather its aimed at the under 7 market and that the price is pretty cheap. Makes sense to me aiming an affordable version of a popular console at young kids.

Apparently GAME are advertising it at £109.99 in the UK but no doubt Amazon will have it down at £99 before the end of the week.

Flashman commented on Wii U Deluxe Model Gets Official $50 Price Cut...:

@scotty30717 I have to disagree with you about the Xbox One price. £429 includes the Console, Kinect & Fifa 14. The PS4 is £349 if you then include FIFA 14 alone and your suddenly up to £391 (going off prices from Amazon). Throw in the Playstation Eye (£54.99) and your up to £445.99. Suddenly the difference between the two don't look so great for Sony.

I wouldn't get two carried away with thoughts that it will become a two horse race between Nintendo and Sony any time soon.

Flashman commented on Pachter: Without Third Party Support Nintendo ...:

@JusticeColde strange that he has said nothing negative about xbox one. Because I have heard him say Microsoft have been arrogant and that the console is about $100 overpriced. Also that he expects it to be outsold by PS4 and then Microsoft drop price. But nothing negative at all.

Flashman commented on The Super Mario Bros. Movie Is Getting a 20th ...:

@Damo Not really because had someone else directed it the look and feel of the movie would have been dramatically different and would have performed differently at the box office!

Going by the logic that it almost ruined his career then you should add Danny Devito to it as he too turned down the part of Mario!!

Flashman commented on Smartphones And Tablets To Be "Primary Screen ...:

@Fudgewhizzle How much money do you actually think a small niche gaming community would generate when compared to the cost of continuing to make AAA titles if the analysts are correct in predicting migration to mobile gaming.

I read that there is a drop in traditional gaming sales by 25% year on year. Surely it would make traditional consoles a non sustainable business!!

But will it? NO!!! Subpar products will be continued to be released and people will continue to compain about them. What exactly does the irate gamer want?? Figure out how much time he wasted playing it and then paying for his time or a refund because that is essentially all its worth!!

Waste of time and money!

Flashman commented on EA: Excited About New Generation Which Is "Yet...:

@TheRealThanos Like I said all it takes is one of the 3 companies I mentioned to decide it wants a piece of the action and the bottom drops out of traditional gaming!! I have already read rumours about Apple TV getting an app store for games in maybe the next version.

As much as people like to bang on about "Its not real gaming" it still completely buggered the handheld market everywhere (apart from Japan). Plus if you can play the same games you have already bought for your phone on it for no extra cost (which Apple already do between iPad and iPhone). Goodbye Next Gen!!

Flashman commented on EA: Excited About New Generation Which Is "Yet...:

I have no faith in the next Gen of console. I can see them coming out at a heavily inflated price of about $700 and setting off with a sluggish start. I can also see the Ouya as been the catalyst for a massive selection of affordable android consoles that will heavily reduce the already dwindling number of gamers in the world. Plus with cloud gaming coming (at a slow pace) like onlive etc I am not convinced there will be a need for very very expensive propriety hardware. The Ouya was planned to launch with Onlive installed on it.

I am not suggesting that the Ouya is the console killer but I have a sneeky suspicion that if it sells well (its almost sold out 3 months prior to launch) one of the big companies will decide to invest. Imagine how much money Apple, Samsung or Google could throw into marketing a $99 console that would play games you already run on your phones.
