@ReigningSemtex He didn't describe the PS4 as a cutting edge console. He described it as cutting edge technology. Which it is not.
When the Wii U was released, didn't most most developers say it was slightly more powerful than PS360? I don't think a single person would have described it as cutting edge, despite perhaps being the most powerful console available at the time.
Would you still think the PS4 is cutting in 4+ years time? I doubt that very much, yet it will still almost definitely be the most powerful console on the market, despite its badly ageing technology.

Maybe, just maybe, the fanbase for Sonic games is shrinking because too many recent games are terrible. Nintendo maintains its core fans by continuously releasing great games.
In fact, maybe the biggest problem in Sonic Boom wasn't the lack of speed. Maybe it's the fact that the game is an abomination, a rushed insult to fans which his company published in the state it was in.

Of course we understand the difference between an 80+ level platformer and, say, an endless runner on a smartphone, but most people are just going to see "Mario", so for them it's a choice between a sub-£1 game on a phone they already own or one costing £40-50 on a console they will have to pay hundreds for.
This move will decimate Nintendo's hardware business, I feel.

"everyone involved - developers, publishers, hardware makers and the gamers who buy the end product - is guilty of having a very "stale" view of women."
Right. Literally everyone. Despite being a staunch feminist, if I buy this game then I'm definitely not taking it as the joke that it is. I bought the first one, so I guess I agree that women are just there to be pretty objects owned by men.
I mean, it makes total sense. Not like I'm gay and was just looking for a decent and funny brawler to play on 3DS.

Ugh. Why can't Squeenix just release this? 6 was released as the DS was dying, hence the slow sales in the West, whereas 9 sold pretty well (despite Jedward's best efforts to destroy the game's UK sales). I'm sure there is enough of a market for 7 to be worth a punt.

Kind of thought Termina's name could have been derived from the other meaning of terminal - "forming or situated at the end or extremity of something." Seems to make sense, given the story of the game.
Interesting article.
