    "evergreen", Why Does Nintendo have it?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 13 February 2009

    jammy2211 said: Other then the softwares appeal, a big reason is Nintendo's marketing. I've seen TV adds for stuff like Animal Crossing DS and New Super Mario Bros 3 years after they were released, thats the key thing. I'm not sure if third parties could attempt something like this though, as that sort of marketing budget is hard to justify without trying to sell...

    Windows 7 will only run 3 applications at once

    in PC Discussion on 11 February 2009

    I do think that the various flavors of Windows 7 is confusing; however, it is potentially good for consumers who will not need to pay for features they do not want. I'm assuming that MS will also allow you to upgrade any version of Windows 7 to a more feature complete version.However, MS will need to keep an eye on OEM's that might try to cut costs by selling Windows 7 Starter and then blame MS...

    Why can't Wii Ware games be bigger?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 February 2009

    @bdbdbd - That sounds better.  This would mean there is no way to remove an emulator from a Wii or backing up a game to a SD card also backups the emulator (otherwise you could backup your games, delete all of the games for a system and then restore them with no emulator)....

    Why can't Wii Ware games be bigger?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 February 2009

    nordlead said: I believe that every VC game comes packaged with an emulator, which you don't need for a new title running on Wii hardware. So that would account for some, or possibly most of the extra size. Some extra size would be for DRM. If those two don't account for all the extra size, then who knows what else they stuck in there. Wow.  Why would Nintendo not use a...

    "Lack of PSP games" An Insight From A Developer...

    in Sales Discussion on 28 January 2009

    I wonder how this will affect Sony's plan for the PSP2? Development costs for the PSP2 will be higher than the PSP and publishers don't want to take risks with the PSP with a 43 million user base. Developers and publishers may take a wait and see approach to the PSP2 (like they have with the Wii) and it will be up to Sony's 1st party offerings to keep the PSP2 afloat....

    Almost time to upgrade from PS2/Wii to PS3 or Xbox 360

    in Gaming Discussion on 27 January 2009

    The Arcade SKU comes with wireless controllers and an HDMI port (although no cable).  It was the Core SKU that did not have HDMI (neither did the original Pro SKUs) and wired controllers. Edit - You can also use a wireless router as an access point and plug the X360 into it.  A bit convoluted but its cheaper than the Wifi adapter.  This drops your entry price of the 360....

    Which will get the price cut first PS3 or PS2.?

    in Sony Discussion on 22 January 2009

    A PS2 price cut depends on how much profit they are generating per unit. A reasonable price drop would be down to $99 which is a $30 reduction.If Sony currently makes $60 profit/unit they would then make $30 profit/unit after the price drop. 50% (1/2) of their current profit would mean they would need to sell 2x as many units after the price drop.If Sony currently makes $90 profit/unit they...

    Power Up: Could '09 be the year PS3 gets back into the game?

    in Sales Discussion on 16 January 2009

    A recent European market study, for example, predicted that sales of Blu-ray disc players will triple in 2009. That can only benefit the PS3.   How can Blu-ray disc player sales possibly help PS3 sales (assuming standalone Blu-ray players)?   I understand how the rest of author's points make sense using fanboy logic, but this is just...

    Will the PS3 price drop rumors hurt current PS3 sales?

    in Sony Discussion on 15 January 2009

    I started to write a long post about future owners researching the PS3 to justify the price difference over the XB360 which would lead them to read these rumors. Then I realized that I was clutching at straws:)Anyway, does anyone know when a price cut was leaked? I would like to see effect (or lack of) in the sales charts....

    Nyko's Wiimote ...... yes a Wiimote

    in Nintendo Discussion on 08 January 2009

    I'm not a big fan of the Wii Remote for VC games since I think the D-pad and buttons are too small. However, the Wand's diamond D-pad looks aweful. The "jagged" edges also make this look uncomfortable.Hopefully they upgraded the speaker over Nintendo's offering. However, I don't know if I would trust the quality of the IR camera or the accelerometers....
