Precisely.

Infact add Skyrim to my earlier list. But...meh at the rest of the list

The rest of the list might be meh to you, but pretty much all of those titles will sell 1 Million or more units.

And they're but drops in the ocean...

Surely though, the most important consumer is you?

I can only speak for myself. I don't have shares in any company. So I like to know how they sell, but I don't think it's a deciding factor for me...



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

My point in saying that the majority will be Million sellers was that they're all big/popular games coming up. I don't care for a whole bunch of them, but I know for a fact that they're popular/big games and there isn't a drought there on either console.

Those are all off the top of my head so... Yeah, you're wrong, and it's not even E3 yet

All those are coming Q2? Impressive. But if not, then this is irrelevant to the thread, since Nintendo announced Q2 is what this and all other threads are about. Nintendo hasn't announced anything beyond June.

I suppose I see your point, but I never said I was speaking for the masses. I even highlighted the fact it was my opinion and what I was looking forward too...

What's the big thing then? If these are 'drops in the ocean'?

Did you see what I replied to?

I was simply saying that there is no drought for the HD consoles.





@Conegamer.

I said drop in the ocean as in there are many more games releasing/to be revealed, not just the ones I named.

I understood you, and I am NOT saying that the HD consoles are in a drought, just that if most of the games named were Q3 and onwards, they are not in themselves any proof of a lack of a CURRENT drought in the HD consoles. The drought people are talking about for the Wii is until end Q2, not in Q3 and Q4.

Meh, not sure on the dates of them but I know a few are in the current Quarter.

Well, since there's over 10 games I want for the Wii alone...yes, I'm happy. It also means I'm not buying new games just before exams...

I've mentioned this earlier, but it's nice to have some good, solid, logical opinions on this sort of thing for once. Doom is nice, but it's time for a break from it me thinks.

 

Does this mean the whole drought thing is over for good now? Can we be quiet about it and just, I dunno, move on?

The drought is not over until Nintendo releases good games again. Its been 4-5 months since the last good wii game. That is unacceptable. Quit defending a company that has clearly made a mistake. Playing older games is great, but justifying the lack of any new games is just foolishness.

No, I meant threads about the drought  

When was the last good Microsoft game anyway, out of interest? You know, first party...

Your MS comment was true, but what you fail to realize is that at least the 360 has 3rd party support. Wii is not so fortunate...
