    Why was FFVIII left behind??

    in Nintendo Discussion on 14 September 2018

    FF8 is not on iOS/Android/XBox or even PS4 either I don't think. They're likely bringing it out next year but want to announce it next year because 2019 is the 20th anniversary of Final Fantasy VIII. It's most likely coming, I wouldn't sweat it. ...

    August NPD result are out NSW: ~203K PS4: ~197K XB1: ~162K 3DS: ~71K

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 September 2018

    All three systems pretty close, Pro and X models are helping the PS4 and XB1 perform like mid-cycle systems rather than late-cycle systems. It's a fountain of youth in game hardware terms. ...

    Prediction Time: Nintendo Switch 4K VR

    in Nintendo Discussion on 26 August 2018

    Mario Kart is already in VR at a VR center in Japan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Size1svQl9g I guess Nintendo was involved with this? This might be a testing ground for Mario Kart 9. People say this is incredible.  Thinking about it all ... yeah I think VR + Nintendo is gonna happen. There's a lot pointing towards it. ...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 26 August 2018

    There was also that "leak" for a new Tegra Nvidia chip codenamed "Mariko" for Nintendo that had 8GB of RAM. Who knows, maybe all this is connected. Some people speculated Mariko was for a Switch revision to halt hacking/home brew, but newer Switch models are already out which fix that issue but they aren't using this supposed Mariko SoC. It must be for something...

    Switch VR - 1080p display (cheap but high quality enough for decent VR). - System is somewhere between 2x-3x a current Switch (new custom 7-10nm Nvidia Tegra Mariko) - 8GB RAM - Comes with light weight, user friendly plastic face mask, designed by Nintendo for comfort. Can "switch" to augmented reality. Built-in gyro sensors and earphones for "HD Sound". - Switch VR features new VR...

Tegra X2 is old news, Nvidia likely already has something beyond a Tegra X2.  Also look at the link of the VR tech Nvidia has which dramatically reduces pixel rendering for VR games, you can cut the rendering load by half with...

    Prediction Time: Nintendo Switch 4K VR

    in Nintendo Discussion on 26 August 2018

    For games, Metroid Prime 4, Luigi's Mansion 3, and Mario Kart 9 jump out as games that would likely work well with VR. Also the other interesting thing about this idea is a VR model would be a legitimate difference from the standard Switch, not just a cosmetic or even just a hardware boost.  So I think that could work well. It also takes pressure off the VR model to have sell millions and...

    The VR patent was an eye raiser but not neccessarily a slam dunk for Nintendo + VR. But the news of a VR mode being uncovered by hackers in the Switch's very OS ... is certainly something I think one has to take seriously. I think the OP is right. Nintendo is working on something VR related. My personal guess is they started experimenting with VR for the Universal Studios Super Nintendo...

Well if Clinton can lose the Presidency for copping a bj from his secretary and lying about it, then Trump could potentially go too.

    Did the Switch finally destroy Nintendo's "Kiddie" image?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 21 August 2018

    The "image" is meaningless when 70%+ of the people buying Nintendo product are adults. That's not a kids audience, if you want to die on that hill, go right ahead though, lol. Time's have changed, this arguement is so old its actually played itself out, it's not 2001 anymore, it's 2018 now, soon to be 2019. Nintendo's audience base is very different today from 20 years ago. ...

    Did the Switch finally destroy Nintendo's "Kiddie" image?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 21 August 2018

    It's simple changing of demographics. There's only a certain amount of 5-12 year old kids every generation. For Nintendo to have a majority children audience that 5-12 year old crowd in the here and now needs to outnumber Nintendo's culminative over 18 audience. That was easier to do in the days of the N64 and GameCube when Nintendo as a console maker had really only been around for 10-15...

    How Much Do You Expect the Nintendo Switch to Sell Lifetime?

    in Sales Discussion on 21 August 2018

    Switch is thrashing the 3DS in the US and Europe, fact is 3DS was never that popular outside of Japan. Switch is gaining mass acceptance because it can play more console styles of games that the 3DS couldn't handle. You can't have a game on the 3DS that makes people go "wow" the way Breath of the Wild does. ...
