Star Wars episode 7,8,9 & sides Thread:
... Hitler was an atheist though. A large part of his plot was to replace all religions with a religious "faith" built around Germany. He was about as much a believer in religion as people who start fake cults. The Nazis had some level of occultism, but he just tolerated it. He made religious references, but his final plans more or less showed them all to be nothing more then tools. In the "Is he religious or not" it was a war of public religious quotes vs private atheist quotes... which got more and more public as he gained more and more power.

Thank you for some worthwhile comments that went a long way to redeem incredibly silly WiiU threads.
I see magic thinking abound, instead of the will of rationally analyzing what the whole Wii/so-called-casual gaming phenomenon meant.
I'd think every sensible fan would like to understand the present and future in the light of what _really_ happened instead of what fans tell each other in an echo chamber.
Maybe that's not what some are after, though.
Thank you for your kind words though, I like writing challenging posts, challenging both to formulate and counter, that is. :-)
I'm really beginning to think Nintendo (through vigourous market testing that all companies do) knew the WiiU would be a bust even before launch. But were too committed to do anything but launch. This would explain the scarce marketing WiiU got compared to Wii or 3DS. If Nintendo are already focused on replacing WiiU ASAP (and likely the soft-selling outside of Japan 3DS) then it's understandable that they wouldn't consider a price cut, and wouldn't try to artifically boost sales. It's fait accompli. Not saying they've abandoned it completely. Games will come out (even vertual Boy got 29 titles) and Nintendo will look to build hype prior to holiday season with some big games but I suspect Zelda and poss. Smash Bros might get held back to launch a new system.
On the other hand PS3 had similar issues but Sony knew that sales would go up when the price dropped (and it had a loooong way to drop) and PS3 was 'future proof' and was going to be relevant for a long time. WiiU certainly will drop in price, but is undercut by comparible PS3/360 in price and will not be especially cheaper than PS4/720 most likely. And it already feels like old tech without any wiimote hook like Wii had.
If my gut is right, All of WiiU's best games will be out 2013, after that the well will be dry as all games are pushed to the new system which - with the combined mobile/console software development and shunted WiiU/3DS games will have the best game line up of 1st party titles ever. Out Holiday 2014 or early 15. Spec comparible to but less than PS4/720. Price competitive with a much better 'hook' than the gamepad.
Thoughts? Am I crazy smart or just plain crazy?
I think they're counting on riding the 3DS until fall and then launch some games for Wii U, and keep launching just enough to keep afloat, all the while trying to extend the Wii U's time on the market without trying to lower the price too much or too often. They are bound to be aware of two things; one being that dedicated handhelds are going away and two being that they won't be able to compete properly on the gadget and tech market, they simply don't have the pedigree, experience or connections to pull it off. They have tp pull a rabbit out of the hat for next gen!
Shout out to how bad the Gran turismo elevator music is @___@

CGI-Quality said: Mummelmann said:Neither is a 1st party exclusive so the discussion is pointless. Halo isn't platform exclusive either (PC). Huh? BOTH are 1st party exclusives. In terms of platforms, only Halo has shared console and PC versions. GT PSP is the only non-console version. Even then, you'd be reaching as far as you could. My bad, there were some changes...

My name is Lars, and games make up a big part of my sparetime (which is abundant as of late). Writing is my other passion, and I write all sorts of vampire and fantasy short stories. I do enjoy games with a medieval theme of course, but FPS and adventure games as well as racing are also frequent in my collection and wishlist! Feel free to contact me either through VgCharts (which is by far my NexGen site of choice) or send me a mail. Any input for story ideas or similar thoughts are appreciated!!
