    Leak Reveals Gamestop Is Basically Shutting Down

    in Gaming Discussion on 08 September 2019

    I'm doubtful of this because, contrary to popular belief, Gamestop is profitable and is cash flow positive. They only had a lost in this current fiscal year due to some goodwill impairment but they are otherwise fine. This idea that they need to do massive layoffs to stay above water is nonsense. ...

    We Might See Sony buying New Studios Next Year

    in Gaming Discussion on 24 August 2019

    Dulfite said: Platinum is way to close to Nintendo to be bought by anyone but them, in my opinion. That's my thought too and I believe it will happen. Now that Sony has bought Insomniac I think we are going to see more defensive purchases and Platinum is the big one for Nintendo.  twintail said: I somehow doubt it. I guess they will try acquire Bluepoint. Insomniac...

    in Sony Discussion on 19 August 2019

    CGI-Quality said: VideoGameAccountant said: Well, it's as the person I was replying to said: why buy a company that would work with you anyway. There is also the fact that Sony's talk of acquisitions started soon after E3 when Microsoft bought another company (after purchasing 5 others) and pledged to buy more. I'd think what you are saying would make more sense if this was a...

    Which studios do you think Sony gonna acquire?

    in Sony Discussion on 01 July 2019

    I beleive Sony is trying to keep developers away from Microsoft (and Google to a lesser extent). Since E3 2018, Microsoft has sought to buy up developers to make a 1st party line up. I expect Sony and soon Nintendo will buy up developers to make sure Microsoft doesn't get them. Insomniac is the most obvious. They've worked with Sony mostly but did make Sunset Overdrive for the XBox One. They...

    New Business Model for console

    in Sales Discussion on 19 June 2019

    This scenario is way too unrealistic to really vote one way or the other. If they get no royalties than, from the companies perspective, option 2 is the only viable option since you'd try to sell the system for $200 more. If royalties are taken, then option 1 is what will happen (assuming no competition which would affect the price in the real world). It's just outlandish. From the consumer's...

    Bleeding edge gameplay actually looks fun.

    in Gaming Discussion on 17 June 2019

    It's an interesting idea but it leaves a lot to be desired. I think the 4v4 style doesn't work that well in a melee centric game because the gameplay will end up being "get to the spot we need to cap and brawl." It works better in a shooter because distance adds the needed depth to the gameplay. As a death match style game, it would work better. Character designs are also lacking. ...

    When will the Zelda BOTW Sequel Release? Predict!

    in Nintendo Discussion on 17 June 2019

    Early 2021, but honestly it could release as early as Late 2020. It seems like it's quite far along actually. I'm sure they didn't want to give any idea for a date after delaying Animal Crossing and Metroid Prime 4. Early 2021 would put it about 4 years after the first game which would be quite a long time for a game that is reusing assets. ...

    2020: The peek of the Switch?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 16 June 2019

    fatslob-:O said: Nearly zero chance of that happening without price cut and I'm not counting on it happening either in the long-term. By the end of this year, the vast majority of Nintendo's leading game franchises will have released thus the Switch will likely end up experiencing sagging sales next year ... This sounds a lot like what was said a a year or two ago. "Nintendo will...

    Ok, E3 presentations are over. Who won?

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 June 2019

    Late to the party but Nintendo was the pretty obvious winner. Most consistent of the bunch. Honorable Mention to SE for the FF7 demonstration. Was the best demonstration of the show for sure. Just the rest of the conference was lackluster (Avengers should have also been a gameplay demo). WAY too many CG trailers, mobile games and DLC. It was pretty lackluster overall. I'm mostly disapointed in...

    Sony first Party games sales, A huge leap from PS3 era. ( Entered Ninty Level ) Update: GOW at 10m & Uncharted 4 16M

    in Sony Discussion on 16 June 2019

    outlawauron said: VideoGameAccountant said: Two things I want to point out. The 16 million for Uncharted 4 should probably be removed as it's VERY dubious. Sony's official information only has the game at 8.7 million after 266 days after launch. Sony does update other games that keep selling. Horizon shows up through 672 days with 10 million. We're saying the game doubled in sales...

    Switch overtakes total PS4 sales in Japan, in less than half the time

    in Sales Discussion on 09 June 2019

    0D0 said: VideoGameAccountant said: "Nintendo's homeconsoles have declined as long as I exclude the Wii." I have a feeling you are starting from the conclusion and working backwards. You want to say Nintendo is in decline and the Wii and Switch throw a wrench in that. Thus, you redefine them so your thesis can be right. If your thesis requires you to remove information or ignore...
