anthonyDotNet commented on Soapbox: Even With The Arrival Of PS4 And Xbox...:

I agree the Wii U is definitely a capable system and just not properly marketed. The new commercials don't sell the system right either.

Both the PS4 and XBox One are great, but let's not forget the previous transition that cross generation games didn't really improve that much more on the newer hardware. It was after a few months that games started to look that much better. In the meantime we benefit from other perks like sharing game play, voice commands, and social media integration.

anthonyDotNet commented on Talking Point: Should Nintendo Have Made the 3...:

Cartridges are used more likely for anti-piracy measures than anything else. People quickly forget what is involved when a game or any software for that matter is developed. Plus if you take a moment to really look at those 1 - 2 dollar games on download services, they are what they are, games worth 1 to 2 dollars. I'll gladly support first and all third party developers by paying for their software, no matter how it comes. Sure downloading a game from a service is great, but buying another like Dead or Alive: Dimensions is another. $40 can be pricey, but you're not going to find anything at 1 to 2 dollars that does what the other does.

@67
But what also makes it enticing are the other non-3d related features such as the movement stuff and better augmented reality (via the included game cards).

If neither of those do it for you, then there's always the dsi. That was a nice real big step from the previous models. I know I'm probably the only one who likes this app, but the sound board on the dsi was alot of fun. Only wished it allowed the ability to save multiple sound boards rather than just one.

Now to get Galactic Pinball, Red Alarm, and Teleroboxer on the 3ds! Those were great on the VB.

I remember when the Virtual Boy came out hearing how alot of people had these dizziness and nausea spells, but I never did. I always chalked it up to being used to 3d (and 2d) gaming for years. I thought at some point in my life my constitution to these things will get worse like riding spinning rides at a park. Prior to 12 I could spin like nuts and then 12 on up I couldn't anymore without getting super sick. Well fast forward to 2011 and I still have that same Virtual Boy. Still not sick from it and my eyes still don't hurt. I'm sure it's a person to person thing, everyone is different and can tolerate different things. Needless to say, at least the 3d effect can simply be turned off.
