It doesn't bother me too much but they couldn't put at least 4 megapixel cameras instead of the .3 megapixel? .3 is pretty dang pathetic. My old digital camera that was given to me about 10 years ago is 4 megapixel...

I have taken a few decent photos (one of a giant spider and another of a bat) with my 3DS but some pics come out pretty bad. At least they solved the low light issue which was pretty bad.

"the Amiibo release date is going to be this holiday, alongside Super Smash Bros Wii U, the first game that will have Amiibo compatibility. "

http://www.idigitaltimes.com/articles/24081/20140730/amiibo-release-date-nintendo-smash-bros-wii.htm

Makes sense to release alongside Smash considering it will be the first game to use them.

"Fils-Aime revealed that they’ll be similar in pricing to Skylanders and Disney Infinity, so you can expect them to run you in the range of $10 to $15"

http://wiiudaily.com/2014/06/nintendo-amiibo-price-packaging-info/

I assumed 10-15 dollars even before typing Amiibo pricing into search. There was a placeholder price I believe (not sure what site or region, but I believe Australia) that was stating $20 but Australia usually gets screwed on price for anything gaming related (also it was just a placeholder price).

"Nintendo 3DS peripheral will hit shops in 2015."

http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/3DS/Amiibo/news.asp?c=59995

The price of the peripheral hasn't been announced considering it isn't even set to release till 2015. I would assume it would be $10-20 at most. What would be cool if they released a special Amiibo for those that bought the peripheral (special Amiibo + peripheral for $30 would be a decent deal).

"And maybe 3DS, if your friend has the required peripheral which none of us have actually seen yet."

Really, you seem to know so much about Amiibo but haven't seen the 3DS peripheral? Well here you go...

"X1 isn't selling much better than Wii U"

Wii U has been outselling the Xbox One almost every week since MK8 release. I believe the only time Xbox One outsold Wii U (after MK8 was released) was when they first sold the system without Kinect for $100 less than the Kinect SKU.

Just let me know if you need any future corrections on incorrect statements provided by you.

@rdrunner1178

EA has never supported the VC which is lame cause they have a big backlog of 16-bit games (Road Rash, Desert Strike, etc..). I believe their reasoning is that they want people to join Origin (R.I.P. to Origin developers which their crap service is named after). I will never infect my computer with the virus known as Origin. Eventually, I will just buy used carts from the 16-bit era to get my Road Rash fix on or better yet Road Redemption.

This guy is awesome but he is looking more aged than I would have thought for 58 (have a friend at work that is mid 50s but looks 40s). You would think he would still look like a baby with his voice acting skills.

@Ferkner

Was about to reply on the same thing...

"That was a business decision made by Activision to focus us on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Another studio is doing current-gen."

Even developers are too stupid to grasp generation terminology. Current gen is Wii U, PS4 and Xbox One. According to them they are next gen system apparently. Next gen seems to be used as a hype word more than used correctly.

Last gen = PS3, 360, Wii
Current gen = Wii U, PS4, Xbox One
Next gen = ?

I feel like bashing my head against a wall every time someone uses these definitions wrong. Doesn't help when so called "experts" in the industry use them incorrectly. Some things will never change.

SethNintendo commented on Interview: Dan Adelman on the Indie Scene, the...:

At least they dropped some terrible rules from the WiiWare days such as having to have an office, game sell threshold before getting any money (sure it helped keep some shovelware out of the eshop but it also screwed some developers (MDK and Retro City Rampage come to mind), and the very small size allowed for the game.

The eshops has seen a lot of improvement in regards to those issues. However, we are about to get flooded with shovelware due to the relaxation of policies. Just gotta pick the gems out of the rough. Luckily, sites like NintendoLife exists which rates the indie/VC titles with fair ratings (hardly ever been screwed over by a crappy eshop game when following NL's ratings).

There will be a slight cross buy implementation this gen for 3DS and Wii U. However, I don't see it coming into full force till next gen when they release a hybrid home/portable console which I believe is in the making considering they merged the home and portable console development teams into the same building.

Ah that would be problem for me considering I don't watch most videos with sound. I only turn my speakers on when I jam out to my music. Just call me an old time loser that is stuck in the 90s brick phone era.

So the real "challenge" is getting rich people to donate money.

SethNintendo commented on Microsoft's Phil Spencer Lays Down Ice Bucket ...:

I see no point to this trend and how is exactly a challenge? If one either worked or worked out (outside) in Texas and then did this challenge it would actually be refreshing. Hot as hell in Texas and can't wait to move back up north. Count me as not impressed but I don't do "social trends". I don't see how this is related to raising awareness on a certain disease. It would be like taking a dip in the north pole and saying that raises awareness for homeless people or putting yourself into a bath of scalding hot water and saying it is for burn victims. This just seems stupid to me.

@Captain-Falcon

Wii U, Xbox One, PS4 are current gen not next gen. Next gen would be after this gen. Stating that you only use Wii U and PC (same combo I use) and not owning any "next gen" consoles is completely wrong unless you work for EA. Wii U is current gen just like the PS4 and Xbox One. Generations are defined by time not power. You need to accept this. Neo Geo spanked the Genesis and SNES in power but it is considered to be apart of their gen. Want further proof of how wrong your thinking is?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_video_game_consoles_%28eighth_generation%29

Your idea of a video game generation is wrong and ignorant. Now you know and knowing is half the battle.

SethNintendo commented on The Pokémon Trading Card Game Is Coming To iP...:

@Frank90

While your statement is accurate I would consider them Nintendo even though they are semi "independent". Just going by the Wikipedia page it is obvious that they have very close ties to Nintendo.

"The Pokémon Company (株式会社ポケモン Kabushiki-gaisha Pokemon?) is a corporation responsible for marketing and licensing the Pokémon franchise and is founded and affiliated with Nintendo."

Just going by this quote at the end it clearly states that they were founded and affiliated with Nintendo.

"Since 2001, nearly all licensed Pokémon products have "©Pokémon" in the copyright acknowledgments with the usual three of "©Nintendo", "©Game Freak" and "©Creatures Inc.". The video games, Pokémon Trading Card Game and licensed toys are still being made by third and second party companies such as Takara Tomy."

The last line of this quote helps support your statement due to them licensing to second and third party companies.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Pok%C3%A9mon_Company

You would have a better case about your statement when considering Game Freak.

"Game Freak, Inc. (株式会社ゲームフリーク Kabushiki gaisha Gēmu Furīku?) (officially stylized as "GAME FREAK inc." and also as "GAMEFREAK inc.") is a Japanese video game developer that currently creates games exclusively for Nintendo."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_Freak

Game Freak is a video game developer that creates games exclusively for Nintendo. I might not be an expert on this matter but these are the facts laid out by Wiki. It is an unusual arrangement in regards to the Pokemon IP.

SethNintendo commented on The Pokémon Trading Card Game Is Coming To iP...:

Not a fan of phone/tablet gaming but I see no problem with this. Nintendo needs unique products to either attract consumers towards their hardware/more in depth games or get cash from them if they only game on these devices. Like others have said it should also be on 3DS/Wii U. Basically, I could have just copied and pasted most of the previous comments.

SethNintendo commented on New Project CARS Screenshots Race Into View:

Why even show screenshots of the PC version? I'm sure none of these are Wii U version and I don't even think they have released any Wii U screenshots. Please just stop with PC screenshots. False advertising

My interest in this title has dropped a lot after the delay was announced. Why torment us with screenshots from the PC version?

@Kaze_Memaryu

Perhaps a good answer would be that my PC is in a room while my Wii U is in the living room. I'm not looking for streaming videos from PC but I am looking for ability to play music on my Wii U. Right now my only option would be to use my blu ray player which I suppose I could. I wouldn't mind if Pandora app came out on the consoles but again I can just use my blu ray player. Only thing I know is that the Hulu+ app on Wii U is complete crap (after it plays one show it won't let me load another; haven't checked it in awhile but I'm sure the issue still exists). It used to not do this but it would give numerous playback errors. I pretty much gave up on streaming services (Netflix and Hulu) on Wii U and use my blu ray player now for it. I'll have to try them again and see if any improvement (Netflix would have blurry resolution compared to the blu ray player).

Yea, a media channel is sorely lacking on the Wii U. Heck even something as simple as the 3DS music player... I still don't understand why they haven't done this (they had this with the Wii which it was a barely used feature; I remember Excite Trucks had an options that you could load songs and play them while racing). I might not like Microsoft but they implemented this way back in the original xbox.

SethNintendo commented on Ubisoft Clarifies Reasoning For The Crew Skipp...:

The Crew sounds like a horrible title. Don't just brush this off as oh it is another one of those comments from a Nintendo fan about a 3rd party game skipping the Wii U....

I gather my negative response from what I've read about the DLC / pay to win implemented in the game. Screw any game that is pay to win.

90s Arcade Racer, Road Redemption, and Project CARS are the only racing titles I'm interested in besides already owning MK8. Project CARS is the only racing sim that is truly needed for the Wii U. Shame they delayed it probably killing potential sales even though Wii U is the most demanded platform for the game.

I like how the enemies walk around like monkeys from the Wizard of Oz. I imagine that is how most people who break and enter houses walk around the premise. They should have just had monkeys as the entire cast to save on production costs.

Third place platform....? Also, who the heck spells Mortal Kombat... Mortal Combat? Their game sucks and only became folk legend due to the ratings board and ban/hiding of game in stores. The only Sega CD game worth anything (besides Sonic) would be Tomcat Alley (I'm sure you can throw some JRPGs in there also).

@midnafanboy

Very few people would have reached gold or platinum status through Wii or DS codes last year (not sure if they would work but I suppose they would or Nintendo could just null coins due to age of games). They would be such a small percentage (less than 1% I assume) that any backlash they get could be resolved with sending them a current small gift from the Club Nintendo prizes. The chances someone got gold or platinum status through Wii and DS games is almost zero. They would probably have to at least own a 3DS or Wii U. Also, Nintendo is keeping the Wii Shop online (Wii Mini doesn't even have online) but their main focus are the 3DS and Wii U eshops.

The people here complaining that they own all the games should just sell their codes or give them to a friend. I probably spent about 2 hours at most doing surveys and getting a 5 dollar game for gold is a lot better than a calendar. So the gold prizes are an improvement but they should have probably kept a choice between physical and digital game prize for platinum. I'm sure Nintendo will make it up to them next year.

@Yorumi

I've gotten over $80 worth of games from Club Nintendo coins. Also, it only takes about 1 min to do the survey after registering the game. Unless you are writing them a book report for the questions they ask you then it shouldn't take more than a min or two. I usually just put I bought the game because I knew it would be fun, etc.. A short sentence for any question asking for a response or sometimes I don't even put anything at all. The main thing I put for VC surveys is cross buy (game should be able to be played on 3DS and Wii U).

@Spartacus3765

I'm mocking them and I reached plat last year. I have a 3 poster set still sitting inside the cardboard tube it came in. I'm waiting to frame them and put them in the new house I'm about to move into. The gold reward is a lot better than some stupid little calendar that I don't even use (most of the gold rewards in past were small calendars). I'd rather have something to play than something to stare at.

@Cromulence

Developers use it as another excuse just like they did with the Wiimote. Oh... I would release the game on this system but I just don't know what to do with the controls or screen... Newsflash developers... Nintendo offers more control options than any other console system (Gamepad, Wiimote, Wiimote+nunchuck, Wii U Pro Controller, and Classic Controller). Just because there is a screen there doesn't mean they need to think of something special to do with it. Plenty of games don't use it at all or just use it for off screen play. Just another bs excuse to not release a game which they think is a polite way of saying they aren't going to release the game. Wish they would just man up and state the real reason why they won't release the game (such as they don't think it would sell enough copies). Even though I hate EA at least they had enough balls (and perhaps too big of balls) to declare their hate towards the Wii U.

I'm glad a few others prefer surfing the web using a stylus than trying to use fingers on a multitouch. I can't count how many times I would hit the wrong link on my old smartphone (actually went back to my dumbphone because was sick of the crappy smartphone). My experience surfing the web using the gamepad with stylus was far superior than my smartphone. Perhaps my fingers are just too big?
