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 :(

actually im not sure about rumble but several consoles had analog sticks before nintendo for example the atari 5200


Digital Joystick != Analog Stick



Nikkei just hyped up Nintendo E3 press conference even more. I hope they show this "super controller" in action. I can't even imagine the cost for one of them will be.

??? 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.

How long have you been here, Soriku? How often did I call you a silly kid, because you weren't able to grasp the most basic things? And yet, after all this time, you still have no clue.

A 3D Mario is not a big deal and it shows Nintendo's lack of business sense. If you want to sell hardware, then your biggest series must have absolute priority. You don't release second tier games (which 3D Mario is) and hope all goes well. It's better to be safe than sorry. You know how quickly third parties jump ship when it comes to Nintendo.

Yeah, two back-to-back multimillion seller 3D Mario games aren't a big deal at all. By your logic, Just Dance 2 isn't a big deal (despite, you know..both Mario Galaxies crushing it in sales).

 

Be quiet. You don't sound intelligent or even slightly on top of the issues. Quite the opposite, actually.

BS ROL! BS!  D=<

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!

Yes, SMG sold about 10 million and SMG2 is going to end up around 8 million or so. Meanwhile NSMB Wii sold more than 20 million copies. So did Wii Sports, Resort, Wii Fit and Mario Kart Wii. Those are the facts, so why does anybody get upset when I call 3D Mario not a big deal and a second tier Nintendo series? The sales numbers evidently show that 3D Mario is not in the same league as those others.

In a following post of yours you justify 3D Mario going first due to the console being expensive. Well, that's another mistake of Nintendo in and of itself. Why price the system out of the range of your biggest addressable existing audience? They already made that mistake with the 3DS and are about to repeat it with Project Cafe.

Also, I am not sure how you can call those guys on the Sean Malstrom forum (and Sean himself) fools when the 3DS is clearly struggling. It's pretty obvious that Nintendo doesn't really know what they are doing, because they've been repeatedly missing their sales projections in the last couple of years. I have the numbers on my side and all you have is "but people like 3D Mario".



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Man I hope the rumours are false. I want a next gen Wiimote not next gen DC controller or I-Pad controller. Plus the controller would cost a fortune. I won't believe it until Nintendo officially unviels it at E3!

That's going to be one huge gamepad then if it has 6" screen in the middle and buttons/d-pads/analogs on sides.

At this point I'm not sure what to think anymore and I'm just waiting to see what they announce at the E3 conference.

So it's not a rumour any more? Really interested to see how Nintendo implements the controls and backwards compatibility to the remote+. Handheld to Console communications is something they've been aiming for, it was one of Revolutions features, and very few Wii games use it. So I hope it is more exploited this time.
