@Quorthon

I didn't say it wasn't hardware. I said it might be a OS but I didn't say it was one. That's an opinion. This is my opinion. You didn't say I think NX is a game console. You said it was one. That's stating opinion as fact.

You continue to discount my opinion as baseless. You even go so far as to say that I twist facts even though I do not see any facts that I have twisted.

@Yorumi and @Quorton
I don't want this to continue so let's just agree to disagree.

@Yorumi

Does this mean that Windows is hardware? You are saying that because it says dedicated game system that it is hardware, correct? Windows is an operating system but it isn't hardware.

System: a set of connected things or parts forming a complex whole, in particular.

YOU DON'T GET IT.
1. I never said it wasn't hardware.
2. The infographic does NOT say that it is hardware.
3. ALL OF THIS IS SUBJECTIVE
It's like you are personally trying to get under my skin. Your 'analysis' is more opinion than fact because all you are saying is 'since they've done this before, they're gonna do it again' and yet you refuse to show me HARD EVIDENCE as to //why your opinion is stronger// and then you show me that. Are we even looking at the same picture? System doesn't automatically mean hardware. Also, what Iwata said is entirely up to individual interpretation. It's what business-types do. So saying I'm wrong because interpreted it differently is wrong in and of itself. NOBODY IS RIGHT OR WRONG. DO YOU GET IT NOW?

Like I said, I think that NX may be a gaming operating system due to a statement given by Iwata about the lack of game releases on both of their hardware and him comparing that to iOS and Android whereas anything made for one device can work on many others. You read over that and called my opinion nothing more than a 'knee-jerk reaction' when isn't yours the when you are assuming that the new platform is a new console or hardware of any kind? Just because has happened before doesn't explicitly mean it will happen again. So yes, I'm dropping your 'conclusion' to 'opinion'.

Also, stating opinion as fact is another reason why you are being rude.

@Quorthon

That's quite rude of you to say that my opinion is based off nothing when I have already presented why I thought such with my own facts. You say it as though I pulled it from thin air. Are you not doing the same with bringing up what may being considered a precedent? You say that you have ample evidence that makes your opinion the 'stronger' one. Please present it.

Subjective: based on or influenced by personal feelings, tastes, or opinions

@Quorthon specifically

I'm not discounting my 'stance' because I have none. Facts are facts: this is always true. But for whatever hasn't happened yet, it's all opinion. This is what I'm trying to get at. Your view that the NX is a console is your opinion just as my view is an opinion. Just as Dipso said, extrapolated data is part fact part opinion.

@Quorthon

To you, the NX being a console is a more likely conclusion. Please be reasonable and not talk as if everyone shares the same thought.

Sure it's a reasonable conclusion. But that doesn't mean that it's the most likely one. If anything, judging by what Iwata was saying about Apple's iOS or Googles' Android (I believe it was an investors meeting), NX /might/ be a gaming OS they are working on and it will appear on their future devices. This is all just speculation, however, but to me it seems like a more reasonable conclusion.

Gate_Shikimuri commented on Mobile Developers Extremely Positive About Nin...:

"The upsetting thing is that they will probably employ the same strategy of free-to-pay and cash in on virtual goods."

Nintendo never said their mobile games would be free-to-play. I guess this is an assumption since the most successful games on mobile are free-to-play.

"It's great to see that more core game developers are taking mass market touch screens seriously as a primary gaming device."

I really don't think that's a thing that Nintendo was thinking. Secondary, maybe. Tertiary, absolutely. Primary, I don't think so.

I'd play this but I wish Team Shanghai Alice ported their games over to Wii U and/or 3DS. Imagine playing Embodiment of Scarlet Devil and Imperishable Night on the gamepad!

EDIT: I honestly think Team Shanghai Alice could've made a fighter game better than From Soy Sauce ever could.

Rovio, if you're really shirked for money, at least give us quality games. $50 is too much for a mobile phone game you can pay for next to nothing for on the original platform. And Nintendo of America, how dare you even allow this to even happen. You know Angry Birds. You do realize it's not worth that price, yes? Reggie needs to kick out the people in charge of eShop management.

I don't get why people are saying Nintendo shouldn't claim money from THEIR products just because someone else is Let's Playing THEIR stuff. Y'all sound like a bunch of idiots. If someone's using and making money from MY stuff, I deserve to get that money, too.

Gate_Shikimuri commented on Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition Software Bundle C...:

Great. Now can you please say 'Mario Kart 8 preorders come with a free Wii Remote Plus' or 'Mario Kart 8 comes bundled with a Wii Remote Plus'? Why is it that the games I have little interest in come with a WR+ but not the games I am interested in? What if some comes over and wants to play with me? I'll only have one WR+!

Gate_Shikimuri commented on Nintendo Quashes Rumours Of New Hardware At E3...:

I still would've liked a 3DS+ or something where it could have HD and can stream to Wii U have more processing power or another Wii U package containing 500GB storage space. I would say "a more powerful Wii U" but if they did that, I would feel like I shot myself in the foot especially since my games are tied to the system hardware.
