It happens a lot. Nintendo is selling a majority stake in a baseball team to raise cash...no criticism. Sony selling a building? Forums on fire.

Lol they sold a baseball team to raise cash?

Yesterday.  It seems like it to me, there will be no other reason to divest that asset (they are retaining 10%).  They must need the money for something else...and it makes sense, Kimishima is a finance guy.

I think that is what you fear. I think with all the secrecy behind it, it's going to be amazing. 

Trust me. He does NOT fear that.

Microsoft received alot of criticism when the Xbox 360 launched just four years after the OG Xbox launched.

 

Nintendo is doing the same thing and the criticism is there but not as much.

 

Why is that?

 

In a more positive note. Delaying the launch to ensure the games are there makes sense. I also have a feeling the NX is going to be an amazing platform. As an Xbox only gamer I am very interested in the NX. In my opinion I think after the GameCube is where Nintendo went wrong. The Wii and Wii-U were not bad consoles, I think they could have been better with a few changes. Anyhow as a gamer the NX has my interest.

 

Microsoft looks to launch new hardware, a new controller and new features for Xbox. E3 can't come soon enough. Also looking out for NX news whenever Nintendo is ready. I think the wait will be worth it.

 

I have to beg to differ with the bolded part. People are saying NX is a flop and doomed all ready and all NX has is a release date lol

It is funny, I see more criticism for the NX existing and how nintendo abadoned the Wii U, than I ever did the original Xbox.

Which had nothing to do with the fact that it was because someone who ran the thing stepped down (Howard something). Trainwreck you all of people should know why certain decisions happen. Nintendo isn't exactly strapped with debt and cash issues. They have problems for sure, but it is not the same, and you know it. 



 

I remember playing Xbox 360 in a Game shop on a Samsung stand and was blown away at Call of duty 2, Xbox 360 was exciting Achievements first proper dashboard & gamertags it was amazing time to be a gamer, and it followed the beast that was the original Xbox, the Wii U is disappointing and underpowered and NX has so many rumours people are expecting gimmicks also gamers have had enough of Nintendo not listening to there own fanbase.

I remember seeing Gears Of War. Was just blown away by the graphics on that one. It was like DKC on the SNES back in the day.

It crossed my mind, but I was giving him the benefit of the doubt.
