    Thanks for sticking up for me :)

    No problem, he was getting way out of line

    on 02 August 2016

    Calling you an hypocrite for owning a PS4 (which you need for your job) is rich considering he has been complaining about Neo and Scorpio in these forums, but he keeps working for a company that will make games for them (and it's likely that he'll be involved in them).

    Ya how dare you accept that PS4 wedding gift!!!!

    I haven't seen you post much in response to the current NX rumor. What gives?

    I posted in a few of the threads but i guess i never said what i think about it. I personally think a family of systems would be a wiser choice but as long as it gives people the handheld & home experience while having a uniifed library and at the right price than i have no problem with a hybrid device.

    I dont believe or disbelieve the rumor, if it turns out to be a fake than i wont be surprised but if it turns out to be real i srill wont be surprised.

    Boooooring..

    on 27 July 2016

    hahaha what were you expecting me to say?

    on 27 July 2016

    Something along the lines of "what a load of crap" would have been nice.

    on 27 July 2016

    what is so unbelievable about it?

    on 27 July 2016

    That it is a hybrid after Nintendo's talk of possibly increasing the number of form factors due to the new approach to home console and handheld R&D. Or that the "brain" needs to be placed in a dock when Nintendo actually has streaming technology from the Wii U that would allow this device to play with a screen controller that transmits a signal to the TV wirelessly, thus eliminating the need to attach/detach the control elements repeatedly.

    on 27 July 2016

    well to be fair, Iwata's statement was pretty open-ended on the subject of hybrid or unified family. He basically said that they havent decided which route to go and the market would determine what they choose.

    As for having a dock, perhaps the device is underclocked when in portable mode in order to save battery life and when in console mode its running at full clock speed to display games at higher resolution.

    on 27 July 2016

    But the market can't make such a choice when it isn't given a choice.

    At least the explanation for the dock makes sense.

    on 27 July 2016

    Well in that case a family of devices wouldnt make sense either since the market wasnt given a choice to decide if they want a hybrid or family instead.

    I'm paraphrasing but the quote from Iwata was basically, "we may go with a single hybrid device but on the other hand we may go with a family of unified devices, we havent decided yet."

    on 27 July 2016

    u never responded, so do u think this rumor is possible now or still think its completely made up?

    on 31 July 2016

    I didn't respond because you bent the quote to fit a hybrid and I didn't care enough to answer. A family of systems gives consumers the choice, especially if it starts to include a hybrid after a home console and handheld have already been brought to the market. Depending how each device sold over course of its respective production run, Nintendo would then decide if only one device is necessary in the future. That's the beauty of their different approach, the number of devices and the kind of device can be changed how Nintendo sees fit.

    I still don't believe this rumor, but that doesn't mean everything has to be made up (one of the options you gave just now). For example, NX using cartridges might very well be true.

    on 31 July 2016

    "Still, I am not sure if the form factor (the size and configuration of the hardware) will be integrated. In contrast, the number of form factors might increase."

    "Whether we will ultimately need just one device will be determined by what consumers demand in the future, and that is not something we know at the moment."

    Those are actual statements from Iwata, at the time he was unsure if they would go hybrid device or family of devices.

    I agree with you though, I believe a family of devices is a wiser choice and gives more freedom to the consumer.

    on 31 July 2016

    Actual statements of Iwata with the middle portion being ripped out. But even what you've quoted does not suggest a hybrid. It suggests uncertainty if the common two form factors will be all it will be, then the closing remark says that it will be up to consumers to determine whether Nintendo will need to make one or more devices in the future. Future does not mean the upcoming generation of Nintendo hardware, but the one after that.

    Like I said before, if it's now hybrid-only, then how are consumers supposed to decide? And if consumers can't decide, then how could Iwata say that consumers will make the decision?

    on 31 July 2016

    yes, the middle portion which just explains what he means by potentially increasing form factors.

    What i quoted suggests that Iwata was unsure of which route to take, hybrid or family.

    As for how consumers decide, there are other ways to find out what consumers want other than just putting a product on the market and seeing how it does.

    Hey zorg, I remember you making a thread about Gameboy sales... Do you know how much of the 118m, are Gameboy color units? I have tried too hard to find it on the internet but with no result, so I quit!

    I think it was something like 64 million.

    on 08 January 2016

    What's your source? I don't doubt you since I trust you but in case I use it somewhere, someone would demand me my source and I will have to provide it! :)

    on 08 January 2016

    My phone sucks at posting links, but just Google "Nintendo yearly shipments" and the first thing that shows up is a Neogaf thread by aquamarine that gives yearly shipment data in each major region. I didn't divide GB from GBC, it was Pre-Pokemon & Post-Pokemon GB sales.

    Why do we insist that NX has to be another PS or XB, or else it'll fail?

    in Nintendo Discussion 3 hours ago

    The funny thing is that by asking for a PS4-level console by Nintendo, you are basically asking for them to repeat what they did with Wii U....

    in Gaming Discussion 6 hours ago

    I made a thread a few weeks ago comparing the sales of genres on PS4/XBO to PS3/360.........it didnt get a single reply though :-( The the retail market for PS/XB software has basically become annual sports, online shooters & open-world action titles....
