@Angelic_Lapras_King That's what I always thought was going to happen. It sold out so fast that I immediately assumed it had to be scalpers. I think they assumed like me, that this was to be exclusive to Nintendo UK online store which, but luckily for us consumers it wasn't. So I just bought it from Game.

FragRed commented on New Patent Sparks Talk of Potential NX Details:

@andrew20 I don't think stores would be too interested in selling games where they'd have to partially refund it once it had been installed. Also what happens if you delete the game but at a later point in time want to reinstall it? You'd have to buy it again.

FragRed commented on New Patent Sparks Talk of Potential NX Details:

I'm sorry but I can't see the NX, what ever it maybe, NOT having a disc drive.

I know people are slowly moving over to downloads over physical, but the majority of gamers haven't done that, even more so when it comes to Nintendo.

Nintendo removing the disc drive would be suicide unless they plan to make use of some other form of physical storage.

I'm interested to know if this series actually sells well still? My understanding was that last year's release sold most of of the units on the original Wii, but that still didn't add up to much in terms of actual copies sold.

I still think the whole QOL thing was a way of Nintendo establishing itself elsewhere in case they ever had to leave the gaming industry. And let's be honest, Nintendo really has to make the NX something outstanding and sell like crazy for that not to happen, even with the money they've got.

I had this pre-ordered on Amazon UK ages ago but am really not sure if it's something I'll actually go threw with and get. There's something about it which isn't clicking with me.

On the other hand, if Nintendo UK restocks Project Zero I'll buy that!

I can't see Lego Dimensions being the big thing they are expecting it to be. The market is being overcrowded with toys to life, plus the pricing is just way too expensive - £90 just for the starter pack? Seriously? Then £20 to £30 on top of that for each additional set you need.

I noticed the Simpsons are gonna be split up into individual characters too instead of a single one off collection, so those alone are gonna be really expensive.

FragRed commented on Nintendo Download: 13th August (Europe):

@Peach64 I'd like to agree but somehow I don't think that's the case. I think this is just a result of the lack of third party support on the console along with Nintendo’s lack of real interest in the virtual console and no first party games coming this week.

FragRed commented on Talking Point: Fatal Frame's Trial Version and...:

If Nintendo actually believe the future of selling games is the eShop then they really need to do something about the first party and perhaps, if they can and if they get any, third party prices. At the moment they are far too high and rarely, if ever go on sale here in Europe (the first party titles at least).

And I hate digital anyway so Nintendo really would need to do something amazing to get me on board.

FragRed commented on 3DS Can Last For Another Two To Three Years In...:

@Lyngstud I have always doubted this whole hybrid idea. Nintendo themselves only said it was something they had looked into, and I think somewhere Reggie even said it was a home console, perhaps a slip of the tongue. I will look into finding a source for that just to back it up, if I can.

Anyway Nintendo said the NX will be affordable - you can't do home and handheld in one at an affordable price, not without making a big loss per unit and Nintendo won't want to make big losses from the outset, not after the Wii U and how long it took to get back into profit. Also AMD has pretty mentioned last year that a big gaming company was to be using their X86 chipset for an upcoming system, so again I don't buy it being a hybrid or even a handheld. The 3DS is still doing well enough for Nintendo not to worry just yet.

I don't know how big NIS are as a developer but I'm assuming they're of a respectable size. After reading what he has said, I find myself asking if he knows what the NX is. I mean, assuming rumours are true that Nintendo has been showcasing it to developers at conferences etc.

I'm not really too surprised by a third party developer cancelling a game on the Wii U. In fact I was shocked New n Tasty wad coming to the Wii U still. Perhaps they're now looking to see what the NX turns out to be before deciding if they should continue profucing for Nintendo consoles.

@garthvader Did the Order sell that well? I didn't think Sony gave official figures, just that it was on its way to meeting expectations looking at a fairly recent interview. Also the fact the studio behind it seems to have split ways with Sony suggests all is not well.

@readyletsgo It's a shame, I won't go near a digital download for a retail game especially at Nintendo’s prices. And I can see people buying multiple copies for flogging on eBay. If Nintendo ever had brains they would know to make enough to meet pre order demands. But alas, they don't when it comes to this kind of thing.

I hope that by being a limited edition retail version, it won't be on a first come first serve basis, I have no intention of buying a digital copy of a retail game but I do want Project Zero even if it is a terrible name.

FragRed commented on Rare Co-Founder Has No Idea Why Nintendo Didn'...:

Nintendo doesn't have a huge number of first party studios, they really need to do some buying. The Wii U showed that they haven't got enough teams developing games and even if the NX gets that needed third party support, Nintendo will still need more games with a bigger variety in genres.

FragRed commented on Nintendo Treehouse Staffer Talks Localisation,...:

What game has Nintendo produced that requires the play of Bioshock Infinite as research? But I do find it pretty cool that they have an extensive library, maybe they can start to look into development of more of those kinds of games in addition to the ordinary but still awesome Nintendo titles.

FragRed commented on Soapbox: It's A Tragedy That Rare Replay Isn't...:

It is sad this is not on the Wii U, but at the same time I feel if Rare had still been Nintendo owned we would never have gotten this cheap deal collection. Instead it would have been all made for individual purchase through the Virtual Console and we may not have gotten anything to celebrate 30 years of Rare.

However I am looking forward to playing this game tomorrow Its actually one of the reasons I bought the Xbox One after watching the E3 conference.

FragRed commented on Scathing Nikkei Report Hints At Shameful Treat...:

This doesn't surprise me as much as I thought it would. Konami really has issues. I don't know how the legal system works in Japan, but if this were the UK there'd be law suits flying left right and centre.

I can see Konami seeing a huge downfall as a business with this scathing report.

@readyletsgo I think that would be a great idea, and the wonderful thing about today's gaming generation is that there is a keen interest in all things retro - which is the reason for such a huge amount of old games getting released and retro consoles getting remade.

Funstock is an awesome site, like you I get weekly emails and am always trying to work out how best not to overspend.

@readyletsgo Considering the whole idea of Europe is to be a "one" or a "single entity" when it comes to trade etc, it really doesn't make sense how we still struggle to actually achieve such things. Especially when all my gaming orders on Amazon appear to be dispatched from Amazon.de not the UK warehouse.

@juliobrand Wow that's actually quite cool that you still get newly produced Master Systems. Though I would perhaps question the quality.

I want to get a Master System at some point, remember playing these back in the day. The one we had came with the snail maze game built in.
