    Worst director of all time?

    in Movies Discussion 23 hours ago

    Uwe Boll has never made an entertaining film. They don't even get into the "So Bad it's Good" territory. Seltzer & Friedberg pretty much single-handedly destroyed the spoof film as a genre with their equally horrible attempts at parody. Mel Brooks or Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker, they ain't. Tom Six... well, The Human Centipede... uh... yeah. It was a thing, I guess. Definite proof that just...

    Can Avengers: Endgame take the #1 spot beating Avatar?

    in Movies Discussion 2 days ago

    $6.5M to go, and most of the foreign box office returns on BOM are only updated through July 7, meaning we have more than a week's worth of returns to add assuming it's still running in most of those markets. It's still making money in the U.S., too. I think once the movie is completely gone from theaters, it will have passed Avatar.Passing Avatar's inflation-adjusted gross domestically is going...

    ‘Friends’ to Leave Netflix for WarnerMedia’s HBO Max Streaming Service in 2020

    in General Discussion on 11 July 2019

    2009: "Streaming will save us from cable! Just get Netflix and Hulu and you're all set!" 2019: "Well, that didn't work out..." The streaming video market is now so fragmented that, depending on what shows and type of content you want to watch, it can now be almost as expensive to stream everything as it is to subscribe to cable (e.g., for anime alone, new series are split between four...

    NPD: PS4 2016 vs Switch 2019

    in Sales Discussion on 11 July 2019

    Looking at the biggest months for a hardware revision for a Nintendo handheld, some of them have been big sales boosters, and I suspect the Switch Lite will be a big one as well. But how big? Let's look at the ones that did drive sales significantly, by their first month: System Model Release Date Units Sold Increase From Previous Month Year-over-year Increase DS DSi April...

I got the correct PS4 figure for Nov. 2017 from Welfare some months ago, so ~1.2M is indeed correct for Nov. 2016. It also means the figures I have for the XBO are off as well. Apparently the XBO sold 90% what the PS4 did in...

    Should Halo Infinite drop Xbox One and go Scarlet exclusive?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 08 July 2019

    Ideally, Infinite should be next-gen exclusive. It would mean that the game wouldn't be held back by weak soon-to-be-last-gen specs (I mean, it has to work on the base model, not just the One X), and it could drive up sales of the Scarlett big time as it would be a major AAA first-party title. But given what has already transpired with the game's development, it should remain cross-gen....

    Can Avengers: Endgame take the #1 spot beating Avatar?

    in Movies Discussion on 07 July 2019

    Endgame's domestic gross is about $16.4M short of Avatar's original theatrical run (adjusted, of course). But if you take into account 3D and IMAX showings being a disproportionately large share of Avatar's ticket sales (and consequently having ticket sales lower than its gross suggests), Endgame has almost certainly beaten it already in terms of total tickets sold. Too bad Hollywood only counts...

I do agree on the longer battery life of a Switch mini. The Mariko chip/die shrink seems to be perfect for just that: Same power while consuming a good chunk less energy. Maybe I have the volume up too loud? My hearing...

    How long would you prefer a console lifespan to last before replacement?

    in Gaming Discussion on 06 July 2019

    Long enough for the system to obtain a large library of quality games, for developers to get comfortable enough with the hardware to make the most of it; and for technology to advance enough to make the leap to next-gen worth it. But not so long to where things start to feel stagnant. I'd say 7 years has been good enough for that in recent generations. ...

    Has Sony made PlayStation "too Western"?

    in Sony Discussion on 05 July 2019

    Barkley said: Not really, EU and NA are the biggest markets so it makes sense to focus on them. Also Japan favours handheld systems, so that's another reason to focus more on western markets. The 3DS outsold the PS1 and PS2 in Japan. Here's the percentage of sales that came from Japan for recent consoles: PS3 - 11.9%Wii - 12.5%PS2 - 14.7%Gamecube - 18.6%DS - 21.3%PSP - 24.7%3DS -...

The PS4 could end up being down by as much as 30% YoY (though that's in large part due to the PS4 getting big short-term boosts from God of War, Spider-Man, and RDR2). The PS5 comes out next year, so we can probably...

    Why is Nintendo the only one singled out with shutting down fan games?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 July 2019

    Nintendo gets more flak about it because of their prominence and, more importantly, how aggressive they are about it. Nintendo has a lot of history and a massive dedicated fanbase, and a lot of them want to make their own fan games based on it. But how many notable fan games based on Nintendo IPs have been allowed to exist? Nintendo has been systematic and thorough about laying the banhammer down...
