TheWhiteFalcon commented on Book Review: Console Wars - Sega, Nintendo, an...:

While it's not perfect, I prefer "The Ultimate History of Videogames", as well as the also not perfect "Service Games: The Rise and Fall of Sega".

I dont have my copy of Console Wars yet, but I've read the iBooks sample, and the foreword is downright embarassing. I plan to cut it out of my copy when I get it. Just garbage.

TheWhiteFalcon commented on Satoru Iwata Speaks Of The Need To "Redefine" ...:

How about you actually market the Wii U? Wouldn't that be doing whatever you want? And some marketing could 'redefine' your position in the industry.

I love Nintendo, but the huge amount of boneheaded moves they've made the last few years frustrates me to no end.

@Platypus101

Newer Wii models don't support the Gamecube at all, they've got no controller ports, nothing. It was when they made the change to the Wii that made the default orientation horizontal. The Mini is even worse since it doesn't support external storage nor have internet access capability (no store access).

@rjejr I'm waiting for a price drop on the XL before I upgrade...my 3DS (got it used) has problems with the card slot and I've been looking to upgrade. Plus the XL is a lot more comfortable, I don't like that I have to have a huge grip on mine.

That, or a new model to be introduced.

I bought mine last month, but since it was a Nintendo refurb I don't think it counts.

And this will bring the usual "NINTENDO IS DOOMED" comments from folks, and people saying Nintendo need to exit the console business. These same people will ignore the fact that the Vita hasn't even broken the three million units sold mark yet after over two years on the market.

TheWhiteFalcon commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Saturn:

I just wish prices for consoles weren't sky high. Hard to find one with cords and a controller for less than $70 on eBay. Even just a few years ago for that price you were getting several games and both controllers (good games too).
