kobashi100 commented on Nintendo Reports Losses for Q1 of Financial Ye...:

@Hy8ogen you really have no understanding about the gaming industry.

Just think about this for a minute. If mario kart 8 cannot sell enough Wii U consles in Q1, how the hell do you yhink Q2, Q3, Q4 will be better.

look at the software being released. Q2 has nothing so there is no doubt at all the the hardware sales will be down. How are they going to increase when there is no new games to buy?

please explain that one?

Q3 and Q4 has releases but none with the power of mario kart. Just exactly how do you expect them to shift hardware units. Again if you do, please explain how?

Fantastic sales for Mario kart 8 but it's existing customers.

The game has not sold the Wii U to new customers. We are definitely looking at 10 -12m Wii U sales in its lifetime. Anyone who thinks it will get anywhere near the gamecube even at 20m is living in a dream world.

3DS is also sinking like a Stone. Nintendo definitely need to look at releasing a new handheld in 2015.

Nice boost for Wii U although I expected more. The major problem is that with no steady release of games the console cannot build up any momentum.

These droughts are a joke. The reality is that the Wii U will reach gamecube levels of success and that's about it.

@Zobocop This!!

Lots of them Wii owners moved away from consoles and moved onto tablets and smartphones.

They won't be coming back either

I personally had Wii and 360, got Wii U day one but also got a PS4. Wii U is current gen for me and I wanted a next gen machine.

Can we finally stop this talk of Mario kart and smash saving the Wii U.

The hardware sales are nowhere near good enough. just like the GC, we see first party titles not shifting hardware.

Anyone who thinks smash will save the day needs help. Wii U is toxic..

Wii U will struggle to sell 20m..



kobashi100 commented on Kirby Seizes Top Ten Single-Format Chart Débu...:

@RainbowGazelle joke is that minecraft will be available on basically every platform including mobile apart from Nintendo.

Why Nintendo never made sure this was released on Wii U and 3DS I don't know.

Also the advertising for kirby and Mario golf in the UK is pathetic. I haven't seen one ad yet.

@tzarivan please let us know how Nintendo is pushing the limits with new Stuff?

Last generation hardware is not pushing any limits. Still not enough top software to buy either.

After Mario kart there is no games till smash..

Dunno what your limits are but they must be very low.

@Artwark not once in its lifetime was the 3DS in this bad situation. Wish people would stop using that as an example for Wii U.

Also the 3DS had system sellers all lined up. Consumers knew they were coming.

The Wii U is not a new console anymore. 18 months later and it is still bombing.

It will sell less then the gamecube when all said and done.



kobashi100 commented on Fire Pro Wrestling Creator Masato Masuda Passe...:

best pro-wrestling series ever made. Way much better then any WWE game. As a huge Japanese Wrestling fan, fire pro was perfect for me. It simulates japanese pro-wrestling brilliantly. No stupid, wacky, soap opera storyline garbage needed.

Fire Pro D is still my favourite. Fire Pro D has a proper go for title mode which was left out of Fire Pro Z and Fire Pro returns.

Hopefully spike do bring us a new Fire Pro or KOC game soon as there has been no japanese pro-wrestling released for ages now.



kobashi100 commented on Smartphone Game Market Shows Impressive Growth...:

its a problem for nintendo no doubt. Nintendo should not enter the phone market though. competing with Samsung and Apple would be suicidal and be a huge mistake.

I honestly not sure how nintendo reverse the trend. I dont think they can, instead we have to accept that the handheld market has shrunk so nintendo has to lower there forecasts.
