@Jazzer94 that's possible but I'm just going on the info I can find and with MS and Nintendo not releasing worldwide sales numbers it's hard to know for sure

@TingLz yeah the XB1 is selling faster and I have no doubt it will over take the Wii U (if it hasn't already) but like I said it's hard to know when they don't release the worldwide sakes numbers Nintendo only seems to care about sales numbers in Japan and MS only seem to care about sales numbers in America and without full numbers it's hard to paint a proper picture



FullbringIchigo commented on Analyst Thinks Nintendo Is Already Winding Dow...:

@Jazzer94 while it's true that more than 10 million XB1's have been SHIPPED to stores it's estermated only about 7 million have been sold to consumers, it not know the exact number because MS won't release them

Nintendo has sold more Wii U's to consumers than MS have XB1's but MS have shipped more to stores while that might count as a sale for MS (MS sells to the retailer) there are still less XB1's in peoples homes than Wii U's (at least for now)



FullbringIchigo commented on Analyst Thinks Nintendo Is Already Winding Dow...:

still has more sales than the XB1 so it's not that bad

still the main problem I think is most just see it as an updated Wii and look at it in the same way they do with the 3DS and '' NEW'' 3DS

but I'm not dissapointed, I love my Wii U and am looking forward to info about the NX (whatever that ends up being)



FullbringIchigo commented on Nintendo Begins Takedown Proceedings on Super ...:

to be fair there would have been no problem if he didn't offer it for download, he should have just used a video as a proof on concept

offering up what you do not own as a download even free is illeagl, whether you intend to make money off it or not you are distributing a copyrighted ip you have no ownership of or right of distribution

Nintendo are well within their rights to take it down and they should take it down it's their ip and they have a right to protect it



FullbringIchigo commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@Icarus423 oh I agree they shouldn't make it just for third partys but just reliying on their own games isn't working, just look at the WiiU now I love the WiiU but it doesn't get many games through the year

I just don't want to see Nintendo fail and go the way of Sega Nintendo was my childhood and if that means they have to make their console more like the PS4 & XB1 and more friendly to third partys I'll be ok with that



FullbringIchigo commented on Guide: Everything We Know So Far About Nintend...:

I'm not sure I like the idea of Nintendo IP's on mobile, I think mobile gaming is a blight on the industry so much shovelware and freemium crap and clones of other games it's like the atari 2600 generation all over again and we all know what happened there



FullbringIchigo commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

I never thought the score system was needed because all we need to know is if it's good or bad besides what makes a game a 6 rather than a 5 and the 100% score is even worse I mean what's the difference between a 96% and a 97%?

I think a system like this would be better

  • Excellent
  • Great
  • Good
  • Bad
  • Avoid

we don't need to know anything else and numbers don't really tell you anything



FullbringIchigo commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

@Jaz007 oh your allowed to sell the disc and the box those you own but the data on the disc you don't

one of the ways to get round it though is to say that the game sale is a contract and reselling is transfering the contract from one person to another that's another way stores get away with reselling

but unauthorized monetized broadcasts such as let's plays are still technically illegal, it's esentially the same as setting up a projector in the street and charging people to watch a dvd



FullbringIchigo commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

@Jaz007 @ZenTurtle thing is at the moment the whole thing is a bit of a grey area over what they can do and what they should do, you see they could crack down on everyone like a tonne of bricks but it would do serious damage to them as a company as well so there has to be a bit of give and take but all I'm saying Nintendo along with every other game developer and publisher are well within their rights to do this kind of thing if they want

is it a consumer friedly thing to but they have the right to do it to their property if they want to



FullbringIchigo commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

@Jaz007 they don't stop it for many reasons the main one being because they need places like gamestop for example to distribute their new games, it's a give and take relationship and aparently it doesn't actually cause as much of an impact on game sales as people think it does

this was also the reason many publishers started with the online pass as a way to control the used game market and make some money back from it

also for the license transfering when sold the was a legal case a few years ago when someone tried to leave the iTunes collection to his family when he died but apple said it was illegal due to the EULA they went to court and apple won because the person in question never actually owned the content thus he could not transfer it (I know it's music in this case but the EULA is the same for games)



FullbringIchigo commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

@ZenTurtle actually it's not theirs to do with what they want check the End-user license agreement that comes with every game, what you buy is a license to use the content you don't buy it to own it the game is only ever owned by the publishers and/or developers

broadcasting (including things like reviews and let's plays), redistribution (such as trade-in's and reselling), monetizing and reverse engineering are all actually illegal



FullbringIchigo commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

yeah it's not really a nice thing to do but what people need to understand is that your not actually allowed to make money from broadcasting games, it's in every games terms and conditions no matter what system it's on because we don't actually own the games we buy what we buy is a license to personaly use the software, the game it's self is owned by the publishers and developers it's why selling used games is also technically illegal

yeah publishers have let this slide in the past but every single one of them is legaly allowed to stop you making money from content you don't own

it's better said here



FullbringIchigo commented on Talking Point: Five New Year's Resolutions for...:

@C-Olimar can you honestly say Nintendo has good third party support, they didn't even get the FIFA and that was released on everything

yeah Nintendo has great first party games that sell but let's be honest how long can they keep going on just those, SEGA lost third party support with the Dreamcast and look what happened to them (although their first party games wasn,t as strong as Nintendos), do we really want Nintendo to go the same way?



FullbringIchigo commented on Miyamoto: We Are Working On Ideas For The Next...:

what ever they do with the next system I know it will have great first party games, they always do but they really need to make a system that will apeal to third party developers because a system can only go so far on first party titles before it runs out of fuel



FullbringIchigo commented on Sony Pictures Is In Negotiations With Nintendo...:

as long as it's animated ala Toy Story type then fine, live action forget it

I never understand why they make live action movies based on games because they have to change so much at least animated you can make a world that looks like the game and even use the same voice actors (but you need a good studio to do it unlike the ones Capcom used for the Resident Evil animated movies)
