    new Lair pics/vido/info relese date

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 April 2007

    Wow. I don't know what some of the naysayers are talking about but the size of these levels is just incredibly impressive. And I was also impressed by what I heard about fluid mechanics with the Ocean surfaces, that it's not just trick movement anymore but realistic simulation of waves movements, displacement by the ships, etc. But the level of detail in the buildings in the city is...

    Why the Wii Won't sell 80m+

    vanguardian1 said:What I don't understand is how supposedly North America suddenly jumped so much, the last poll I saw of either November or December last year showed HD penetration in NA at about 18%.A good portion of TV sales happen in January just before the Super Bowl. That's when you find the best deals, even better than Christmas sales. Regardless, HD TVs are no longer expensive. I...

    How Much Will the PSP's New $169.99 Price Effect Sales?

    in Sales Discussion on 03 April 2007

    Well, I think it does affect sales. By how much? I'm not sure...170 is a good solid price for an mp3 player, video player, has 4GB memory sticks, and plays games. I think sales will pick up some. ...

Personally, I doubt that it is 50GB for ingame assets and is probably full of 1080p FMV and a large portion of the rest of the space is probably used for loading time optimization; if I'm correct you could probably load the game onto 2 DVDs...

    microsoft, the king of trash talking

    in Gaming Discussion on 02 April 2007

    I guess I'm in the boat that has moved away from Nintendo as I've grown older. I'm into PC strategy games a lot. Also Sim games on PC. So that's my deep thinking games. On consoles I'm interested in RPGs, Sandbox, FPS (which involves a lot more tactical strategy than some people think), and Sports. But I like realism. And to me more realistic movement (i.e. movement of the Jerseys in...

    [quote][b]Alacrist said:[/b] I didn't know that, I guess it goes to show graphics don't always win! [/quote] Yeah that is true. Though I think Sony managed to do other things. They were 2 years ahead to start and had a base growing in the US and Japan. They also secured all the 3rd party support. And games like FF, MGS, Tomb Raider, Resident Evil, Munch, Twisted Metal, Crash Bandicoot, etc,...

    No Official Release Date for Heavenly Sword and Lair

These games are gonna rock no matter when they come.[/quote] Yeah, it was changed ages ago. Originally it was thought it would be March, then Lair said May, and then TBD. Heavenly Sword went from March to Q3 2007. Lair is looking like a summer release though,...

    PS3 sales hit 3 million !!

    [quote][b]TheSource said:[/b] Looks like my prediction of 2.25-3.25 million PS3's sold through March 31 held up. I expect Sony to hit 8.7 million LTD by the end of the year. How many PS3's do you think have been shipped worldwide? I think they have shipped around 4.5 million.[/quote] I was looking for higher sales. I don't see the site reflecting what has been added in the US for March....

    Console Production Shakeup - Interesting Read

    in Sales Discussion on 02 April 2007

    I'm wondering if Nintendo has the same bargaining power Microsoft or Sony does when it comes to outsourcing production. From Sony and their standpoint, they have a lot of manufacturers that make other components and probably have an extensive supplier network. I'm not so sure about Microsoft, I know they have software manufacturers for Windows, and recently adding Zune. But they don't make...

    Why the Wii Won't sell 80m+

    in Sales Discussion on 01 April 2007

    [quote][b]Lingyis said:[/b] I actually posted this earlier but I'll post it again: the $36 a share is the ADR price--American Depository Receipts--and 1 ADR = 1/8 of an actual share. A share in Japan IS around 30,000 yen. So, the market cap IS around $36 bln. PS. not all ADR's are 1/8--Nintendo's is 1/8 precisely because each share is expensive.[/quote] Yep, I see that now. But from...

But all they can do is sling mud at Nintendo. The Wii is for babies? That's why there are stories of retirement homes getting Wiis for Wii Sports... Now I do agree that a lot of teenagers want FPSs.
