OH BOY IMA GONNA SPEND 600$ ON A PHONE WITH A CRAP BATTERY SO I CAN PLAY SOME SH!T MOBILE GAME I PAYED 0.99$ FOR

Come down from your high horse, the battery life of the 3DS ain't better than the battery life of most smartphones when playing similar games.

We'd all be talking about how we could have over 128Gb of storage for little more than 60 English Dollaria, but I guess we can't boast about forwards compatibility.

I wonder how many kids who really like gaming will go for an $600-$800 phone to play angry birds, or a $130 3ds to play real games. This is something that they have to get clear, they are not gamers, a real gamer will not play games on a phone unless is for like 5min. So anyone who really wants to play games will always opt in for a dedicated gaming console.


What a disgustingly elitist post. 

 

Oh yeah, iPhone doesn't cost $600-$800. Buy with contract costs $200 and unlike the 3DS you don't get charged $30+ for a game.

It has better online too w/ friend challenges, achievements, friend lists, high scores, etc... via Gamecenter. Games are priced better too. Squids costs less on iOS (1/3rd the price), Ace Attorney Trilogy HD costs less on iOS (Half the price).

So stay elitist and enjoy being left behind as the rest of the world moves forward. No amount of your terrible attitude will change it.

Not even with a contract is the iphone 6 going to cost $200. DOnt kid yourself.

Dont know about ace atorny, but the rest are a bunch of shovelware that you can find anywhere. Why dont you mention a game like The world ends with you, that last time I chekd it cost $20. Because they will always charge the same for quality games that play similar on the other devices. I saw another post you mentioned some jrpgs you had, wich where all old as hell and would never charge a lot for that, since they can be hacked and goten for free, although that means nothing since dedicated consoles also get hack.

Do you really think big publishers will release big games and sell them for $5 dollars on iphones? No. They will releaae old ports and shovelware. I cant find the study that said people dont like paying more than $10 on a game on phones or tablets. And the majority of games that sell well dont cost even $5. That means that for them to breach the market they will have to make games tha will sell for $5 and will have to sell more then 8 times then what they sell on 3ds to be sucsesfull. Considering that most people that play gammes on phones dont really care for story, or anything important since they play 5min at a time they will only play little games that dont cost much to make and are awfull to someone that came from a console and knows what a real game is. Thas the reason why ports sell for so chap on phones, cuz people dont pay for them, so publishers port really old games that are done and wont cost them to develope just port.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

I feel like the next Nintendo (Fusion) portable will be quite powerful shifting away from the DS/Wii era design philosophies, without breaking the bank per se.

They will drop the second screen/3D screen elements of the 3DS to save money/costs and invest in a better quality single screen setup, but that will give them adequate budget to really go with a powerful mobile GPU/CPU I think that will scale down in cost quickly.

It will be powerful enough to handle Wii U ports, maybe even XB1/PS4 ports depending on the game (scaled down at a much lower resolution of course, maybe 960x540 at 30 fps).

I could see things like Kingdom Hearts III, maybe even Final Fantasy XV getting a Fusion release as such.

That Tegra K1 tablet is $299.99 today, by spring 2016 something like that will be pretty outdated. 

Such a system should do very well in Japan, well in North America, and decent in Europe, but Nintendo needs to make sure it launches with an incredible launch lineup. Mario Galaxy 3 and the next Animal Crossing should be moved over to it, wasting them on Wii U is a losing cause. 

If you could launch day 1 with Animal Crossing and then have Mario Galaxy 3 say two months post launch that would rectify the big problems with 3DS and Wii U launches had (post lanch lull).

You are full of misinformation.

Don't try to tell me what iPhone will sell for. I own one and am buying this one too. I know what the cost will be as they announced it today and it is the same price it has always been.

 

Not even going to bother with the rest of your post. You can talk shit all you want and continue to spread the FUD, iOS is still a fantastic gaming device with great games, but go ahead and think everything is either old or a flappy bird clone. S-E also has little issue selling games for $15+. It sells if the quality is there. Also if a game sells for cheap it can still make money through IAP and/or ad banners.



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Well why dint you mention it before? Theres nothing I like more than being interupted in the midle of a game to buy some other games, microtransactions, adds, asking donations, future plans and other amacing game chnaging propaganda.

That is your opinion and you are entitled to it but don't try to pass that off as fact. Especially on a gaming site.

Same goes for you calling the games "Cheap, enjoyable in small doses, shit".

Metacritic also agrees with me too. Unless we have some excuse for why they don't count there.

 

I guess Dragon Quest IV, VIII, Final Fantasy III, IV, V, VI, Tactics, TWEWY, Chaos Rings, Hearthstone, Plants vs Zombies 2, Sorcery, Bastion, etc... aren't great games based on fact. Unless they automatically and may I say "magically" go from great to "shit" when they leave DS/3DS and go to iOS.

Judging by this site, I am sure I know the answer. No big deal though. I know good games when I play them. Been gaming since the 80's.

 

By the way, I have a fairly long list of real good games on iOS already and the developer support grows each year.

I said banners, meaning the small little ad on the very bottom on the screen that does not block your view what so ever.

None of my games use them by the way. I pay to remove them. Usually costs $.99.

 

 

Nice to see you ignore my link though. Guess it's tough to admit you were wrong huh?
