im f*ckin getting a PS3...a sony excecutive on tv said it was 35 times more powerful than the ps2 and 7 times more powerful than x360...and nintendo has not even bothered to compete in terms of hardware
Hell no; the kiddy stuff Nintendo is pumping out now is bull, but I am getting a Revolution. That doesn't mean I like kiddy games.
It means I like good games... classics.
Oh yeah, and I'll get the 360, too, hopefully. PS3 will have to wait for me, because it's probably going to cost an arm and a leg more than 360, which, if my calculations are correct, turns out to a total of two arms and two legs.
People also seem to be confusing "kiddy" with "fun".
Nintendo are the only company left that has gamers making games. Not people making games with "will this sell" in mind.
Lest we forget, Nintendo have been going for many many years, they still continue putting out Mario games. They still sell. They still f*cking rule and they still beat out most other multiplayer games than Sony or Microsoft combined could ever bring to the table in terms of fun and enjoyment.
Microsoft suffered HEAVY losses in money just so they could shift units. Wanna tell me when Nintendo have had to do that, despite being "kiddy" and "repetitive"? The fact that people still love Mario and such is because it's still great.
Mario isn't a kids game. It's just not about, as Victor said, raping hookers. My nephew loves Mariokart, so does his dad, so do I.
Nintendo rule shit because they think of what would be enjoyable to sit down in your room and play, not "What will sell well". Sony do that, and coincidentally I normally finished PS2 games and never played them again, aside from Metal Gears.
As for all this hardware bs, Sony and Microsoft can churn out all the power they want. If they pump out shit like Halo (yes, because it IS actually quite shit) and samey mediocre platformers with all the realism in the world but no fun, Nintendo could come out with something less powerful, crack out a game like RE4 and still beat the competition.
As it stands, Nintendo have more of the best games ever to their name than any other company.
