    New official info on PS5, launching next holiday

    in Sony Discussion on 08 October 2019

    Interesting they announced it out of the blue. I've heard others mention it's odd they did this right after the State of Play. All that said, it's moot until there are games to show. Once we see those we can get a better idea on what the PS5 is and how well it will do. ...

    Nintendo's game output is improving but still pathetic compared to Wii/DS era

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 October 2019

    Since people have asked for numbers, this is what I wrote about the subject years ago. Keep in mind it includes Intelligent Systems and some of the Grezzo remakeshttps://www.sourcegaming.info/2016/07/15/the-nx-will-have-how-many-games/ In short, Nintendo has made on average 8 games a year ...

    Mario and Luigi RPG developers AlphaDream declare bankruptcy

    in Nintendo Discussion on 02 October 2019

    I'm curious what Nintendo will do with them now. I don't see them buying up Alpha Dream. They weren't making big sellers, Nintendo owns the IP and they'd have to deal with the 400 million yen debt. I don't expect Alpha Dream will exist. My guess is either Nintendo will hire them and absorb them into a new studio or they will form a new company that Nintendo will purchase. At a minimum, I see...

    Shawn Layden, Head Of PlayStation’s Game Studios, Departs

    in Sony Discussion on 02 October 2019

    Torillian said: VideoGameAccountant said: It seems like there is a bit of culture shock within the company for sure. I think it was clear to most people what was going on when Sony was censoring Japanese titles after moving to progressive California. Now it seems there is a clear power struggle within the company. I think this is the same cancer that is going on within Hollywood...

    Nintendo 2020 predictions

    TheMisterManGuy said: VideoGameAccountant said: Whats interesting is that Nintendo's internal studios haven't made a lot of Switch yet. 2017 had 5 games (Zelda, 1-2-Switch, ARMS, Splatoon 2 and Odyssey). 2018 had just Labo and 2019 has Super Mario Maker 2 and Ring Fit Adventure.

    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...

There will be more...

I'd think what you are saying would make more sense if this was a...
