In 20 years when all the documents between EA and Nintendo are leaked or mysteriously found, it will be a story for the ages.

Fact is, the third parties or indies that do well on Nintendo's hardware have a respect for the fans and Nintendo. If you show up with a halfassed port 2 years late or a piss poor eShop effort, the fans will reject you.

If all these rumors are true, then we do have another DS on our hands in terms of "make or break" this company.

Plus remember if Nintendo ever really did need $500,000,000 to $1,000,000,000 they could sell the Mariners.

It's all about trade off's.

The load times issue on the PS1 was generally figured out by 1997 and load times were greatly reduced.

The CD and SCE's 3rd party friendly policies allowed for a great amount of growth in the industry.

It also allowed for more "movie like" gameplay with more cut scenes and voices.

The downside to the latter two is too many companies put too much **** on the shelves. Secondly on my Vita, I cringe whenever I check a file size for a PSone Classic and it is 500-600MB due to the audio and video.

It should be considered criminal, dubious, misleading, and potential fraud that he thinks the Wii U will move 10,000,000 more units in what most people think the system is only around for two more years at best.

And I say this as a Nintendo fan.



ecco6t9 commented on Feature: Handheld LCD Gaming Past And Present:

I recently started collecting LCD handhelds and Keychain games. It gives me something else to dig for at swap meets, thrift shops, and yard sales. Most people usually sell 3-5 games for $1-$2.

My keychain games I've paid more for, Gamestop carried three Nintendo Mini Classics last year. Another company called Hiro made 6 games that all seem decent including Space Invaders, Tetris Jr, Tetris Jr 2. They also made these two which could be considered the Game & Watch's half siblings.



ecco6t9 commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Strategy Needs to be Glo...:

I would argue that Nintendo of America still has not fully explained to the general audience that the Wii U is a Wii 2 and not a "tablet controller for the Wii that costs more than the system."

Hell people still think that the 3DS is a DS-3D.

But I guess that is okay, meanwhile the Nintendo faithful here in North America continue to be denied games and hardware that we want.



ecco6t9 commented on Nintendo NX Will Avoid The Launch Issues Which...:

Well, Nintendo basically let Ubisoft handle the 3DS and Wii U launch.

Come out strong with 5 games and none of them on the level of Steel Diver or Nintendoland while both are good they are not launch worthy for new hardware.

@FLUX_CAPACITOR to be fair I have never like Reggie, granted he was able to sell the Wii and DS to an expanded user base whose last experiences with video games may have been Pong, Pac-Man, or even as late as the NES and he should be rightfully praised for that.

It really is not that hard to keep the fanbase of Nintendo happy, most users see that there is no Call of Duty or Batman or Madden and they either do not care or raise a small fit. The issue is seeing the other 4 major branches of Nintendo to an extent dialoging and releasing products that the fanbase wants and being for the fanbase and seeming against it. The last time a U.S. branch resented it's fans so much was Sega of America under Bernie Stolar.

We only blame Reggie since the decisions that he does make go against what the Nintendo faithful want, granted some may not be major hits but they would at least break even or make a small profit. Breaking even here and there keeps the fans happy and buying new games.

Fatal Frame 4, ASH, Soma Bringer, Disaster, Another Code, Standard new 3DS all decisions by Nintendo of America to not be released here.

The other possibility is that Nintendo of Japan does have full decision making of what Nintendo of America can do and Reggie is spineless when it comes to dealing with his bosses.
