SteveW commented on Former Sega of America CEO Talks Out on the Co...:

Show me one quote where Nintendo says they consider the Gamecube a failure. Sounds like you are the one inventing things.

Who cares if the Gamecube only had 8% of the market, profits do not revolve completely around market share, it's more complex than that. Selling 22 million pieces of any product and MAKING MONEY on each unit is a success. Thanks for reminding me why I stay away from message boards...



SteveW commented on Former Sega of America CEO Talks Out on the Co...:

Nintendo doesn't consider the Gamecube a failure, it was the only console that generation that made a profit and it was a huge profit. Microsoft lost over 4 billion on Xbox and Sony lost as well. Gamecube was a huge financial success. Do some research and quit assuming that just because Gamecube sold less consoles that Nintendo lost money, Nintendo made a ton.

The Gamecube forced Nintendo to take desperation actions with the Wii? it's called innovation... and it didn't take long for others to try to copy them.



SteveW commented on Former Sega of America CEO Talks Out on the Co...:

What has the world come to when people question whether or not a company should give up because they have only sold 9.1 million of their product to date (Wii U)? there are plenty of companies out there who would love to reach even a million buyers...



SteveW commented on Reaction: Satoru Iwata Holds Off on Major Anno...:

I don't want to see Nintendo bringing new games to other consoles but offering a virtual console service for tablets would be a smart idea. There is no harm in bringing NES, SNES and Gameboy to tablets, it's kind of dumb not to. They could even release a bluetooth controller for the app.



SteveW commented on Pure Chess:

Does the camera really continuously rotate around the board as you are trying to play? looks so annoying...

I'd rather have a Wii as is vs an underpowered system trying to produce HD with horrible framerates. (sort of like the underpowered N64 doing 3D graphics, most games have poor framerates or just look really bad).

If they would have made system powerful enough to go HD it would have almost doubled the price and the Wii would not have been as successful.



SteveW commented on DuckTales: Remastered To Hit the Wii U eShop i...:

Nah... I looked it up, the retail version is just for PS3 and is a box with a download code in it... what's the point.

I can see why they chose PS3 for this exclusive though, considering Playstation is where it all started at (sarcasm).



SteveW commented on Platinum's Hideki Kamiya Claims He Doesn't Own...:

I couldn't care less if he owns a Wii U but it would probably take a Nintendo Direct to make me realize the appeal of Wonderful 101 because everything I have seen previously hasn't excited me any... it just looks like a busy mess.



SteveW commented on Review: Wrecking Crew (Wii U eShop / NES):

There was mention last Thursday of being able to save levels in it... "which includes the option to save your creations on the VC "... is this a new feature or does that just refer to the save states that all VC has?



SteveW commented on Bethesda Has No Current Plans For Wii U or Han...:

@bahooney People laughed at me in the 90's when Sega was Nintendo's competitor, I said "Some day Sega will be making games for Nintendo".

I would now say that Microsoft will be making games for Nintendo but they don't actually make games do they? they will be paying others to make their games for Nintendo, lol



SteveW commented on Fils-Aime - With the Upcoming Wii U Lineup Thi...:

Sales for even Nintendo published games are pathetic, Lego City sold 20,000 in USA and 11,000 in Europe, wow, what's wrong with Wii U owners, one of the best games on the Wii U and most Wii U owners aren't giving it a chance, that's why third parties are leaving. There's more to life than Mario guys...



SteveW commented on Talking Point: New Super Luigi U Opens The Doo...:

@GamerJunkie They aren't being greedy at all. I want the retail copy and would have paid full price but they are making it half price!

What about all the EA sports games? Luigi U is a more different than Mario U when compared to the EA sports games that come out at FULL price every year.



SteveW commented on Reggie Unmoved By The Threat Of $400 PlayStati...:

That is a bad comparison, the reason the Wii didn't not sell more is that most people could find one in the first year.

I hope the Wii U succeeds but they are in a lot more trouble than they are admitting to.
