Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nikkei Article on Cafe confirms control

Not read through the thread, so don't know if anyone already said this...

How much will one of these things cost? How will Nintendo go the "Everyone plays together" route, if controllers for the thing are so damn expensive?

Remember Zelda Four sword ? Or the Jaguar ? That's exactly the idea, integrating the controller in the game by making it versatile.

It's exactly the idea. At least, let's hope this time the developper will integrate it, or it will just be a gimmick for Nintendocentric games once again...

Personally, with the G15 on PC, I am quite used on having a secondary screen to look at during the game. Basic hud info can be displayed on the controller screen.

Also, it can be a very good move from ninty to sell two console hardware with one package... Somehow, the 3DS is a bit overlaping this strategy if you thing that way.

The 3DS is getting that 3D Mario game this year and we don't know what the Cafe's lineup but to think there won't be a SMB (maybe not exactly at launch but who knows, Cafe's still a year out) is ridiculous. Not sure what you're getting at.

Oh wow, that 3D Mario game. How exciting.

It's about priorities. It's insane that Nintendo plans to release 3D Mario before a Super Mario Bros. game. They are idiots.

For that reason I am doubtful that the launch lineup for N6 will include a really big game from Nintendo. They are probably trying to sell it on "Oh, look. Now we've got a touchscreen on our controller".


??? A 3D Mario is a big deal. Just because it's not 2D means that Nintendo is focusing more on the gimmick? What.

There's also Mario Kart 3DS. And besides that there's OoT.


Remember who you are talking to...

3D mario is not a big deal? Oh yeah, that must be why SMG 1 & 2 are the   games on Wii that people talk most about. Or why so many people are looking forward to see where they will take the next 3D Mario. Oh and both Galaxies sold about 8 to 10 mil respectively.

Just because they didn't sell as much as NSMBii, they're not worth it? You sound like those guys on the SeanMalstrom forum! They're fools! Fools I say! Don't be a fool too ROL!

Not to sound condescending, but outside of internet forums the Galaxy games are not the Wii games that "people talk most about."

It's not even close.

As to your last question, let me respond with a football analogy. Imagine your team has two QBs, Joe Montana and Donovan McNabb. If the season is just starting, why would you ever make McNabb your starter in lieu of Montana? You'd be crucified by the fans...



Great a screen on a console's controller, come on people think about how often you look at your controller, not often right? Hey the answer's never for me,

Yeah, that sounds like Nintendo really started to believe what the gaming industry was preaching all those years: That Nintendo's success lies in gimmicks, not the actual games.


Ya because controllers, screens, and portable gaming are all gimmicks. What the hell, we might as well get rid of gaming all together. Here we go with more gimmick talk about Nintendo....and the damned thing hasn't even been released yet. It's companies like Nintendo that drive imagination. Was the first analog stick on the N64 a gimmick? What about the Rumble Pack? Or what about the shoulder buttons on SNES? Everything we have in life starts from an idea, as a gimmick.

I'm so sick of these stupid "gimmick" and "doomed" words being thrown around. It's sad to see gaming turn out this way :(

This forum isn't the only one I post on and the Galaxies are some of the most loved games on Wii (not that NSMBii isn't as well).

Out of the vast number of people who bought NSMBii, how many of them are willing to buy a $350 console to play a 2D Mario? Alot of them are more likely to pick up the console when it is cheaper. The 3D mario gamers on the other hand are likely to be early adopters, so there would be nothing wrong with having a 3D Mario at launch.

I'm not saying they will have a 3D Mario at launch, I don't care which we get or when. I'm just saying just because 2D Mario is the best selling one does not mean launch is the best time to release it. This console is  likely to come out above mass market price.

I also doubt fans would crucify them for launching a 3D Mario.

 



While the distinction may be pointless and a semantic argument, what this appears to confirm and what the rumours were are not exactly the same thing.

In other words every device is a gimmick :P
