Things that need to die in 2016: Defeatist attitudes of Nintendo fans

Around the Network

all i care about at the moment is if they will show the new Zelda wii at E3 next year .. im confident they will... next year ninty fans, we begin the hype train lol



He only said that so Pachter would be wrong. Reggie didn't want to ruin his streak.



           

Yeah, it is the same emphatic "no" that we got for such things as DSi XL and Wii Price Drop, but i believe this one.



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.


What Reggie might say has no importance: all the decisions are taken in Japan, and he'll know after the decisions are made, never before... and as Nintendo is very secretive, even when he finally knows something new about the planning of new software or new hardware, he's not allowed to say anything, otherwise, he'll be fired... simple as that...

Now, if you really want to know what's happening with the future of Nintendo, you may read all these (very, very) interesting statements, made by the big guys in Japan: they are the ones to trust and to listen to...

The article on HD/SD combo is way off, They weren't saying that it would be HD/SD combo, they were saying that not all games require HD, some like Wii Fit are fine in SD



 

Predictions:Sales of Wii Fit will surpass the combined sales of the Grand Theft Auto franchiseLifetime sales of Wii will surpass the combined sales of the entire Playstation family of consoles by 12/31/2015 Wii hardware sales will surpass the total hardware sales of the PS2 by 12/31/2010 Wii will have 50% marketshare or more by the end of 2008 (I was wrong!!  It was a little over 48% only)Wii will surpass 45 Million in lifetime sales by the end of 2008 (I was wrong!!  Nintendo Financials showed it fell slightly short of 45 million shipped by end of 2008)Wii will surpass 80 Million in lifetime sales by the end of 2009 (I was wrong!! Wii didn't even get to 70 Million)

On this note, i figure that if they have a good hardware-side scaling chip, like the ANA chip that 360 uses, then it shouldn't be as much of an issue anyway.



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

its not coming out 2010 cause its coming out 2011 lol jk



Also Wii HD was always a stupid Idea, in fact a new Nintendo console will be a stupid idea at least until 2012, only way it'll be out in 2011 is if NATAL or the Sony wand become a huge success, otherwise there would be no point to a 2011 release, as Wii would still likely be selling the best and making money
