Is Nintendo going to right direction?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Is Nintendo going to right direction?

I don't know what you're getting at with your movie comments psrock but they seem to be the complete opposite about your gaming comments.

The Blair Witch Project was a movie which cost (roughly) $30,000 to make and grossed over $100,000,000 in theaters; so in other words, in many ways this movie was exactly like Mario and Sonic at the Olympics in that it was low budget and still had high revenues. Your argument was that publishers would abandon their high budget projects (similar to big budget blockbuster movies) in the face of such high profitability, which from movies (and what we have seen in the videogame industry) seems amazingly unlikely.

You attempt to deflect this argument by pointing out that (for the most part) big budget blockbuster movies are crap ... I've got a peice of information for you, big budget videogames (for the most part) are crap! Mobile Sut Gundam: Crossfire, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, Lair, Genji: Days of the Blade, and BlackSite: Area 51 all had very large budgets and were all very bad games.

The fact is these big budget games, much like movies, continue to be announced for the PS3 and XBox 360 every day even though they will probably be pretty bad and sell pretty poorly anyways. So how has Mario and Sonic at the Olympics or the Wii in general hurt the big budget games?

Wii KILLED mario kart damnit it takes no skill at all.

People who say that Mario Kart Wii takes no skill at all are usually the people who lack any sort of skill whatsoever.

That's my friend code. I am confident that I can beat you in an one on one race every single time, probably with ease. Feel free to prove me wrong.



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

Don't worry psrock everything will be okay look at the ds and you will see the future of the wii.

 Weren't you complaining the other day that the wii doesn't and won't get games?



The thing is that Nintendo did not make hardcore games cost as much as they do. Put the blame where it belongs.



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

Well he's the reason Metroid Prime was first-person.

He even wanted Ocarina of Time to be first-person, but having Link change age required that to change.

And in the development of Link's Crossbow Training, he actually suggested it be an FPS, with a plot like The Terminator. This is from his own mouth (find the "Iwata Asks" interview about the Wii Zapper).

So if he got the chance to do an FPS, he will do it.
