    Analyst: Do not invest in hardcore console games, instead focus on Wii

    in Gaming Discussion on 09 April 2009

    Why invest $60 million on a game like Killzone 2 for 1.5 million in sales when a game like Rayman does twice that for about $300k in developement cost? Left 4 dead got it right. They made a game on their 5 year old source engine, focused only on multiplayer and sold over 2.5 million. high development cost does not equal great sales. innovative games do....

    Was Nintendo's 2008 flop of a lineup merely an issue with perception?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 09 April 2009

    If Wii's 2008 was a flop, then the PS3's line up was an abysmal abomination. Wii fit sold over 15 million, and sony's biggest and most montrous first party game was Little Big Planet selling 2million with excessive bundles. hmmm, a $90 game than sells 15 million, or a free game that sells 2 million. ...

    Sony games have no casual appeal. Theres no gimmick or impulse to buy. Unchartted, killzone , socom, siphon filter, and ratchet and clank are all face less games that EA churns out year after year. Gears of war has the "awesome fatalities and curb stomps". Halo has the star wasrs ish nerd boy appeal, Fable has the changing worlds, Nintendo has the "nintendo magic". Sony games dont have "magic" ...

    Top five mistakes Sony is making with Playstation 3

    in Sony Discussion on 08 April 2009

    Well according to Neilson your wrong about the Xbox 360. Also you just explained in great detail why blue ray is not necessary this generation, A lot of people still don't even have HD tvs. Without an HD tv, a movie or game will look no different than on a wii. They basically just alienated 70% of the population bcause of blue ray. Why pay more money for no benefits? No broadband in many cases...

    Top five mistakes Sony is making with Playstation 3

    in Sony Discussion on 08 April 2009

    @ mike, your missing my point about LBP. Its purpose was to expand the audience and attract younger people. It sold to to a bunch of 25-34 year old adult males. Right now, Mario and Pokemon is selling to millions of kids like its intended to. Lbp will never be a mascot if kids don't accept it. Halo was and is accepted by kids and teens. So it is a true mascot. 30 year olds have never dictaded the...

    in Sony Discussion on 08 April 2009

    @ mike. Imagine how many systems the PS3 would have sold if GTA4, and Resident Evil 5 if they were ttimed exclusives for Sony. Resident Evel sold 2 million in 2 days and GTA4 sold 7 million in a week. Those games were thought of as "sony games" because of several timed exclusives Sony had in the past. Metal Gear was nothhing compared to them 2. The best selling game thiss generation is Wii fit...

    Loss of GTA 4, FF XIII, And Resident Evil 5 exclusivity. Those 3 games were huge deal breakers for millions and millions of people.2. Blue ray was a mistake. Not necessary for games as innovation is not limited by space. It also hiked the price up3.no mascot. A mascot helps give identity. Sports teams have it, companies have it, disney has micky, mgm has the lion, warner bros has bugs bunny....

    PSP 2 coming pre-Christmas will be an iPhone beater

    in Sony Discussion on 08 April 2009

    Let's see, the I pod touch/I phone sold 30 million in 18 months and Sony sold lots of PS1 in the 90's. Sony also beat Nintendo in the 90's. So that means today, Sony's products sell better than Nintendo and Apples's right? Lol...

    Mario may not be unique, the mushroom kindom sure as hell is. warping through pipes, kicking turtles, goobas, unique art style, flying bullets with faces, big venus fly traps, yoshi,a buddie who is a talking mushroom man, etc. mario is so unique that he has to this day never been trumped. Compare that to say Killzone 2 or Uncharted. Sony's "big" system sellers. yawn...

    in Sony Discussion on 08 April 2009

    Size of studios don't mean anything. Sony doesn't have any recognizable Ip's to the mass market. Gran turismo is a racing simulator. It doesn't exactly get kids excited for joy. Do you think anyone knows who Nathan Drake is outside of hardcore Sony fans? LBP was mostly bought by 25 year old adult males. Not kids like with Mario. That's a world of a difference. Halo is getting their. At the end of...

    in Sony Discussion on 08 April 2009

    Its because Sony relied on third parties to get through the PS1 and PS2 era. Resident Evil ,Final Fantasy, Tekken, GTA etc all defined the platform. Sony never anticipated losing their exclusivity and reprecussions of it. Your now witnessing an avalanche of the PS empire comming to an end. Microsoft is wise at mass marketing Halo as big and wide as they possibly can. Halo= Xbox. Microsoft will...
