    New Wii game from Ubisoft - My Word Coach

    in Gaming Discussion on 23 May 2007

    And this game would be on PS3 why? Or has what to do with the PS3 anyway for that matter? Stupid comments like that get old after a while. Will it sell? Doubt it. Is it a good indicator of the way Wii/DS developers are likely to be thinking? Most likely....

    Nintendo means bad news for 3rd parties!

    in Sales Discussion on 21 May 2007

    Smaller userbase is valid but lacking. On a larger userbase, there are a lot more games. Also, Nintendo themselves had no problem creating million sellers on smaller userbases, The Namco article is interesting, as people have applied the statement about RR7 to every single game anyone ever makes. I find it hard to believe early adopters would not know who makes Wii Sports (and by extension...

    Is ANYBODY profiting on the PS3 right now?

    in Sales Discussion on 20 May 2007

    Ubisoft has sold Red Steel (which they seriously overspent on) and Rayman. But they have not seen numbers for Prince of Persia, TMNT, or Blazing Angels. I wouldn't feel comfortable putting any of those companies in anything more than the maybe category. There's no comparison to something like Insomniac, where we know they've made money off the system. I would agree that the rest of Sony's...

    Nintendo means bad news for 3rd parties!

    in Sales Discussion on 20 May 2007

    I wasn't comparing RE4 GCN to RE4 PS2. I was comparing RE4 to anything that came before it. Capcom took their biggest franchise and flushed it down the toilet by making it for the wrong platform. By the time they realized this mistake, it was too late, but they rectified it as best they could. Past, present, future, whatever. No difference. Nobody's had much luck on Nintendo platforms since...

    Insomniac Games, Evolution Studios, and TGC. Activision, EA, and Koei maybe. On the Wii, Nintendo's making a killing, but I can't think of anyone else who's definitely making much money. ...

    Is VGChartz biased?

    in Website Topics on 19 May 2007

    The reality favors Nintendo argument seems to have become the battlecry of late, but it's a flawed one. Unless we count portables (which nobody's done for the past decade), the market overwhelmingly remains Sony's, despite Wii's leadership of about a million per territory, and Microsoft is still the next gen market leader. My personal advice would be to accept it rather than...

    in Sales Discussion on 19 May 2007

    Not only is there less food in Nintendo's ocean, but that whale will have no problem eating any of the fish that are swimming in its territory.Nobody's denying that Nintendo makes great games.Motorstorm and Resistance are interesting points. Why do teams like Insomniac, Evolution, Epic, Factor 5, and Bioware turn to Microsoft and Sony rather than Nintendo? Because Nintendo would rather...

    Nintendo means bad news for 3rd parties!

    in Sales Discussion on 18 May 2007

    The only reason this was in Nintendo's best interest is because they figured third parties wouldn't support them anyway, so they may as well cash in on the cheap hardware and first party software benefits of dumbing down the system. Whether it is actually the right move now is debateable.I agree 360 won't be able to support third parties alone. There's also PS3.Nintendo has a...

    Nintendo means bad news for 3rd parties!

    in Sales Discussion on 18 May 2007

    Nintendo did what was best for Nintendo, as Nintendo always does. They did not take into account how it would impact third parties because they don't care. This was probably the best move for them, but it did ensure they would have trouble getting any key franchises. Install base means nothing if 60-85% of all games sold are first party... unless that install base has the penetration of the...

    Nintendo means bad news for 3rd parties!

    in Sales Discussion on 18 May 2007

    It's possible we may see something similar to THQ's strategy from some publishers: more games overall, the blockbusters reserved for 360/PS3, and expectations of similar revenues but less sales per title. By making the hardware retarded, Nintendo sealed its own fate. It may get FF or MGS, but it won't get the main versions. The problem with focusing on Nintendo's platforms is that they're...

    I didn't say anything about major support, though they did at least have Resident Evil. What they had was similar to what they have now: a lot of games that don't amount to much. At least back then ports of something not last gen (or portable) were easy to do, though....

    Nintendo means bad news for 3rd parties!

    in Sales Discussion on 18 May 2007

    It's not about rushed games or bad games or any of the usual excuses. The problem is Nintendo gobbles up 2-3 times as many sales as a percentage as Sony or Microsoft because people buy Nintendo systems for Nintendo games (yes, this again). Great for profits, but don't expect anybody to actually make games for your system. The most groundbreaking game in the world wouldn't change that any. Of...

    Blex said:i own a wii and im sure that the wii cant do the unreal engine 3...so is this mainly good news for PS3 and 360 games? or is it still being used for wii but scaled down quite a bit? either way id still like to see it used on the wii if it is possibleAt this point, anything that uses UE3 is being assumed to not be for Wii. According to Epic, it is possible to get the engine on Wii,...

    Sony's Q4 FY2006 Earnings Announcement

    in Sales Discussion on 16 May 2007

    Shipments have been inadequate for 7 months, but anyway, they should have known in January. Nothing's going to sit in a warehouse for 2.5 years. Sony's unlikely to look at historical costs or costs of inventory and instead look at what the current cost is. Either that or just act when Microsoft does....
