SomeoneDifferent commented on PS4 and Sony Enjoy Dominant Week in Japan With...:


I would suggest taking a business class on product cycles. The Wii U is at the end of it's life cycle, and never sold well to begin with. Right now, their overall poor sales with the previous margins wasn't bringing in too much money, so they slash the cost a bit, and though their margins won't be as much, the overall increase in sales will maybe (not always, but usually) increase profit. Of course, you would only do this at the end of a product cycle.



SomeoneDifferent commented on Nintendo Confirms Super Mario Maker Console Bu...:


Am I sure? As in, the absence of any doubt? No. But it would be such a bad marketing decision for Nintendo. Why release a SE of this game a week before releasing? Think about all the other canceled pre-orders (mine included) they would encounter for the only version available now. Also, why would they do that? I mean, 2 months ago regarding such an announcement would have brought in a lot more sales.

It is Nintendo though, and their NA division are full of really stupid and pathetic decisions. Just look at their excuse a reasoning to not bring the New 3DS model to the NA. GOD.



SomeoneDifferent commented on Nintendo Scoops Three Gamescom Awards:


Just like E3 and other "Cons" or shows about games, it's not about current games, it's about games coming out. So, they showcase games that are comig out soon (usually within the next 12 months), and based on demos, demonstrations etc., that's how they give out the awards.

Not to be that guy, but how in the heck do you not know this?

I will give you a pass if you're young. But, if you've been gaming for more than 3+ years...shame on you sir - shame!



SomeoneDifferent commented on Super Mario amiibo Series Can Now Be Preordere...:


Same here. Why they chose to use a completely different base is beyond me - certainly a "Look, we are Nintendo, we sit back in a small room with crappy Japanese cigarettes and make stupid decisions!" Nintendo idea.

It's bad enough that the first series has some characters resting on a yellow urine like block...



SomeoneDifferent commented on Miiverse Gets a Fresh Update for Wii U and 3DS:


"Language is living and changes on the daily basis."

You mean, on a daily basis? You can't even get your rebuttal correct. Your parents must be proud.

The example I used has nothing to do with language and how it changes, it's called grammar. Which hardly, if ever, has changed in the English language. If you think that time will change proper grammar and language and how one should conduct themselves, so they don't come across like they barely made it out of the 6th grade, you may want to invest a little more in your own education. Such examples as "your" and "you're" are basics, and it goes from there; it's not complicated, and if you're going to piggy back onto someone's comment, try not to pride yourself on such ignorance. At the same time, you have more than the right to do so, which you clearly have done.

Good luck with that.

Your last comment was uncalled for completely. Should I ever see you post something like that again, you will be temporarily banned. -Lz



SomeoneDifferent commented on Miiverse Gets a Fresh Update for Wii U and 3DS:

"They're here now though, which is what counts"

No, it's not what counts - or at least, not what only counts; this is why gamers and fans alike look at this patform and say, "Really?!?". Let's face it, sometimes we need to shout back at Nintendo and ask if they have been smoking the green when designing the UI, and other aspects of this system. I love my Wii U, but Nintendo rushed this system and now has constantly had to update the system, which is proof of this.

It's been over a year, and I can't still turn of my gamepad when I'm watching Netflix or some other streaming service. Really? It's that hard to write code for sucha simple option?



SomeoneDifferent commented on Netflix Wii U App Update Goes Live:

@JaxonH No.
Not where it would be, anyway. The Wii U's version of the Netflix app is lacking - for instance, you can't pick a TV series and just hit play, and it rolls on, one episode to another --- each time an episode ends, you have to select the (A) button to start the next. First world problem, but the PS3 has this, same with most, if not all hardware I run Netflix. So, in short, it would be nice if we could turn of the effin' controller, while the episode is running, then quickly smack it on and hit A to advance --- or heaven forbid, Nintendo gets Netflix to let us stream ep. to ep..I would love to have the controller by me, and not on the cradle, but just off. It's not a big request - it's little things like this that make people look at the Wii U, laugh, and then buy a different console ---- and as a Nintendo fan, this freaks me out.



SomeoneDifferent commented on UK Retailer Argos Drops Wii U Premium to £179.99:

@jordanmarsden "Incredible Value"

No, it's not. It has a very sad line of games, the specs. are outdated and hardly compete with the XBOX 360 or PS3, and to make it worse, it doesn't play Blu-ray or DVD discs - I can't even use a flash drive to read/play a movie in digital format.

I like my Wii U. I am a Nintendo fanboy - but it's not a great value. That's just hilarious.



SomeoneDifferent commented on UK Retailer Argos Drops Wii U Premium to £179.99:

You weren't "ripped off". No one put a gun to your head and made you purchase the Wii U for the price that you did; obviously you believed the price was right, when you purchased it, or you would not have in the first place. This is the same crud that people spat when they (Nintendo) lowered the 3DS price point.



SomeoneDifferent commented on Sega Has No Plans To Bring Alien: Isolation To...:

@LordFamicom Well, it's because the console IS. NOT. SELLING. It's a catch 22! Don't sell consoles? 3rd party publishers aren't going to make games for such a console. A console without much 3rd party support? The console isn't going to sell.

So, for now, Nintendo needs to pony up some major cash to bring some AAA 3rd party titles to the U. If not, this system, though I own one and love it, is going to go down in history as one of Nintendo's worst offerings.



SomeoneDifferent commented on Sega Has No Plans To Bring Alien: Isolation To...:

Well, I'm sure any hardcore gamer owns more than one gaming machine/console. I own an incredible PC and a Wii U - I find that this combination is just incredible for me, as a gamer. I buy anything I can for PC (better experience and graphics), but I have to still play my Nintendo games, for that is where my heart will always be - let's be honest!



SomeoneDifferent commented on Pokemon X and Y Come Out on Top in Japanese So...:

@K-Gamer Congratulations? Look at those Wii U game sales. Not. Good.

We have to hope that the Wii U sales become a lot better, or this may be a very sad console.

God, I loooove the idea of the game pad. I looooove my Wii U. It has sooooo much potential, but good gosh! Let's get this console going! I am worried. Those sales back it up.



SomeoneDifferent commented on Unepic Confirmed for 16th January on the North...:

Wow. Doesn't look that great at all ---- at all. Jeeeez, can't Nintendo get some solid games going on the eShop? Considering it's been out a year, there's not much available - and don't list me some games that you think are grand, I get it. There are some good games, but saying this, there aren't enough.

Is it that hard (that's what she said), to have Game Cube game available?

Sometimes it's like Nintendo is full of lazy stoners that don't want to bring in the cash. It's so effin' odd.



SomeoneDifferent commented on 3DS Hack Removes Region Locking For Retail Car...:

I find it hilarious that this website (which, again, makes me wonder if has some reason to do so - you know what I'm implying) defends Nintendo in any way, when it comes to region locking.

Like Nintendo on many things (such as online play, or how they juuuuuust implemented an ID system across all consoles), they are behind and an embarrassment to themselves, in many ways.

I love my Wii U and 3DS XL, but again - not an excuse. Nintendo, quit being complete morons...
