    3DS uses DMP's PICA(R)200 chip

    in Nintendo Discussion on 21 June 2010

    kingofwale said: Joelcool7 said: alfredofroylan said: This's the video used as a presentation of this chip. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3A-xxUyJvQQ According to GAF this's below GC but above Dreamcast with low power consumption and quite cheap, so can we guess something below 200 for the price? So were talking slightly more powerful then the PSP or on par. I guess thats why Sony...

    Realistically, how much of an impact will the new Twisted Metal have?

    in Sales Discussion on 20 June 2010

    I don't see it making significant waves, but that isn't because it's a bad game: I think it's a game whose basic premise (fighting each by online with guns) is covered on the PS3. I mean, you'll have a hard time convincing me that there is a large, untapped audience of people who don't like shooting each other with guns on foot (CoD, 1 million other games), don't like beating each other up...

    Should SONY Scrap PSP2?! (If they plan to make one)

    in Sales Discussion on 16 June 2010

    silicon said: I'm not sure if Scrap is the right mentality. Saying they should scrap the PSP2 is giving up without trying. I think we should discuss what's required for the PSP2 to be a success? Right now the two MAJOR competitors for a portable SONY gaming device are Iphone (smart phones) and 3DS. Apple believes in creating products which challenges its users but are simple to use while being...

    Should SONY Scrap PSP2?! (If they plan to make one)

    in Sales Discussion on 16 June 2010

    My question would be: what strategy should Sony take with the PSP2? Because I see huge issues with all of them. 1) Little graphical upgrade, but 3D added. If they release this, it will run right in to the 3DS, which has more popular first party titles by a country mile (whether you personally like them), now has monster third party support, and is competitive from a graphical perspective. Worst...

    Your favorite PC exclusives

    in PC Discussion on 01 June 2010

    Just to make sure I'm clear -- I simply assumed the rules were enforced uniformly. I specifically emphasized the term "PC Exclusive" because those are the rules for 360 games (and the occassional PS3 game). As long as you make it clear it's a console exclusive, you're fine. I assumed the same was true for the PC. If not... again, it seems unfair and unreasonable that 360/PC games can be claimed...

    What exclusives does the Xbox have?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 29 May 2010

    There's a good deal of games that release on PC/360 -- Left 4 Dead being one of them -- that I absolutely hate playing on the 360. I own it on 360 (Because I have a friend who is a Mac user) and PC, and I essentially never play it on the 360 unless I absolutely have to play with that group of IRL friends. I would argue that there's a pretty important difference. There's also a pretty good reason...

    Apple is now worth more than Microsoft

    themanwithnoname said:Don't see how Apple and Microsoft stock prices are related to video game sales at all...   I can see why one mgiht think so, but there is a causal link here. Let me take you down it. Stock prices take in to account the markets expectations of future earnings, i.e. the market now expects Apple's profits to grow significantly more effectively than...

    in Sales Discussion on 25 May 2010

    As a more direct reply to this topic, I'd say that the Apple platform is an equally significant risk to Nintendo and Sony, and possibly the greatest risk to Microsoft. Apple and Nintendo bump heads because they are 1) both significantly concerned with the portable space and 2) both significantly concerned with the casual space. Apple and Sony bump heads because they are both concerned with the...

    Am I wrong in thinking Final Fantasy XIII sales are good?

    in Sales Discussion on 23 May 2010

    Let's imagine two franchises. Let's get away from talk about FF or ME or anything specific. Let's imagine both of these franchises have a sequel coming out.   Franchise A: The last game sold 1 million. The sequel sold 2 million.Franchise B: The last game sold 6 million. The sequel sold 5 million. Which game did better? On an absolute scale, obviously Franchise B did. On a relative scale,...

    in Sales Discussion on 23 May 2010

    See, Vic_Viper, this is what gets people in to trouble. Discussions like this imply that there is no in between: a game is either a bonafied hit or an inarguable flop. In reality, unless you're CoD, Wii Fit or NSMB, there are always positives and negatives. Different lenses with which to analyze the data. And the same is true here. FFXIII's sales aren't fantastic: they also aren't disastrous....

From a relative standpoint, it's probably going to match or exceed FFXII. But from a relative standpoint, just matching FFXII isn't particularly good -- there was far more riding on FFXIII than there was on FFXII. It's also reasonable to assume that it is a...
