    IGN: Sparking Flame Warz between Wii and iPhone

    in Nintendo Discussion on 02 August 2009

    Last year, many developers (including John Carmack) have said that the iPhone's power lies between the DS and the PSP. The PSP is said to be almost as fast as the PS2. This year's iPhone 3GS is about twice as fast as last year's iPhone, according to all reviews and looking at the specs. So it is probably faster than the PSP and about as fast as the PS2. The PS2 being slower than the GameCube and...

    Nintendo and Microsoft follow Activision's lead with videogame price hike

    in Gaming Discussion on 31 July 2009

    My company also raised its prices in the UK. Back in 2006 we used to convert 1 to 1.4 from Euro to Pound. Then we had to go up to 1 to 1.25 in 2008. Now we're at 1 : 1 parity between the Euro and the Pound. It's not fun for our British customers, but what can we do?If they don't like it, they should join the Euro, or just suck it up.By the way: If you convert from Pound to Dollars you have to...

    So Microsoft made a billion dollars on XBL marketplace?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 06 January 2009

    It says "consumers spent", so this is neither MS' revenue nor MS' profit. It's retail gross, which means you can calculate with $50 per subscription....

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 December 2008

    The gaming market on the iPod/iPhone is tiny, but it exists and it's growing. The last statement from Apple was that customers download 3 million apps per day, the largest part of them games. Most apps are free, some were for pay. I think we can estimate here that Apple is currently selling games worth 500k to $1 million per day plus an advertising market that may be worth another 500k to $1...

    And in extension to Plaupius' arguments: Apple is offering lower licensing and distribution costs than the traditional platform holders which to gamers means one thing: lower prices.For a DS game only 50 % of the retail price arrive at the publisher/developer after cost for platform licensing, production of the proprietary physical media and packaging, physical distribution and retail margins....

    Google Chrome already has a 3% market share

    in PC Discussion on 05 September 2008

    There are some bugs, but as you noted, these are the same bugs that were released in Safari 3.0, which was not a beta, so those bugs don't make Chrome look more like a beta-release.The real security issue with Chrome is that it gives Google even more information about you. And that is by design....

    Google Chrome already has a 3% market share

    in PC Discussion on 05 September 2008

    Konqueror is the grand daddy of Safari and Chrome. It is a Linux browser that is built on the KHTML engine. Apple took the KHTML engine and branched it out into their own WebKit engine (both engines are open source).Now WebKit has become the rendering engine of choice for not just Apple, but also Google and companies like Nokia (S60) and Adobe (Air). It is arguably already more important on the...

    Google Chrome already has a 3% market share

    in PC Discussion on 05 September 2008

    Google Chrome has very few bugs considering it's a beta. I don't think it's much more buggy then the other browsers. The security issues are not bugs however, they are rooted in Google's design decisions....

    Google Chrome already has a 3% market share

    in PC Discussion on 05 September 2008

    The stats from Net Applications are more trustworthy. They show that Chrome is hovering around 1 % usage. It will probably be a bit higher on the weekend, but I doubt it will reach 2 % very soon.http://marketshare.hitslink.com/report.aspx?sample=21&qprid=43&qpcustom=Chrome+0.2 ...

    Apple to take over the living room?

So they make ~ 100 dollars on Apple TVs. Actually $219. The Apple TV is the only product...

    Apple to take over the living room?

    in Gaming Discussion on 04 August 2008

    I don't know if the Apple TV is such a flop. Maybe when you compare to the iPod, but not when you compare it to all the other dedicated set top boxes out there. There is some NPD data that in the US, Apple TV is the #1 device for movie and tv show downloads in the living room. [1] That may or may not change with Netflix' free streaming service .The iTunes Store is the biggest music retailer in...

    id's Carmack: iPhone nearly as powerful as Xbox, PS2

    in Gaming Discussion on 03 August 2008

    Regarding game sale on the iPhone, they're already quite big. There is some programmer who developed a crossword puzzle game for the iPhone which is ranked around #39 in the iPhone charts. Now she revealed that she is selling more than 400 copies per day, which is more than 12.000 copies per month. [1] Going by this, iPhone games that have reached the top 3 or top 5 so far will already have sold...

    in Sony Discussion on 14 July 2008

    I have a Clie, too! But I still think your thinking is weird, because it sounds like you bought the PS3 not to make you happy, but to make Sony happy? As long as a game is released for your console of choice you could care less where else it is going to be released....

    papflesje said: @ reverie: very handy that you picked 5 systems for nintendo (gb, gba, gc, ds and wii) and only four for sony. Technically, that would make it Sony's win. Or was that a "glitch"?   I was replying to the statement "Sony has sold more gaming systems then anyone else over the last 10 years", so I lined up all the gaming systems Sony and Nintendo have been selling...
