    Am I wrong in thinking Final Fantasy XIII sales are good?

    in Sales Discussion on 23 May 2010

    It's not a bonafied success or failure. From an absolute standpoint, 5.3M+ units is very good. From a relative standpoint, it's probably going to match or exceed FFXII. That's also good. But from a relative standpoint, just matching FFXII isn't particularly good -- there was far more riding on FFXIII than there was on FFXII. It's also reasonable to assume that it is a far more expensive game to...

    Euro/Pound dive against the Yen

    in Sales Discussion on 04 February 2010

    Think of it this way Slime: EU revenue just dropped 3% in a single day for Japanese companies. The money they made today is wroth 3% less than it would have been yesterday.If that does hold up for months, you may be looking at, oh, 2-3B in revenue between Sony/Nintendo in the quarter (MS is less affected). 3% of 3 Billion dollars is 90 Million dollars. Just gone. Just this quarter....

    Sony on 3rd party exclusivity

    in Sony Discussion on 30 January 2010

    Sony published Final Fantasy 7, Tekken 1/2/3, and many other prominant games for third parties back in the day. I think it's [i]unquestionable[/i] that they also did something similar for the PSP's recent surge in third party support. How else to explain an [i]exclusive[/i] Resident Evil, Assassin's Creed, Metal Gear Solid, and others, when the system's performance is so abysmal? And of course,...

    When are we going to see Nintendo Amusement Park like Walt Disney world?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 24 January 2010

    Theme park admission is on the decline nearly worldwide, although the top [i]few[/i] parks -- notably Disney World, Disney Land, Cedar Point, and a select few others -- are remaining steady, practically everything else (Universal Studios, Six Flags, any other chain) is slowly declining. It's not a good time to be entering that market. It's like getting in to the Rhythm Game genre [i]just[/i] at...

    Sony Ericsson loses $235 million in 4th quarter, 5% market share

    in Sony Discussion on 22 January 2010

    A 40% drop in sales? Goodness.Sony has experienced a pretty major drop in marketshare in virtually all of their markets. In a few -- notably Music Players, Game Players and now Phones -- these drops have been dramatic, as Sony has been disrupted by Apple and Nintendo. In others -- such as TVs -- the drop is less dramatic, but Sony is being relentlessly undercut by companies like Samsung that can...

    The Video Game Industry is Dying!!!

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 January 2010

    This isn't literally about the games industry as a whole [i]dying[/i], it's about the stagnation or consolidation of the "traditional" games industry as social and mobile gaming explode around it. That is the future of gaming: social and mobile gaming. Browser games, the iPhone, facebook games (farmville has nearly 50 million users!), and of course, the DS and Wii. That's where the growth is....

    Sega thinks Nintendo should help with mature content on Wii.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 08 January 2010

    So this brings up an excellent discussion topic. Here are two statements to consider -- one which we've heard frequently for years, and another we've heard only more recently. 1) Nintendo first party kills third party software sales. This is often used as an explanation for why third parties ignore Nintendo systems. 2) Sega wants Nintendo first party to make a specific type of game so that Sega...

    Windows 7 Usage Passes All Versions of Mac OS X

On all relevant PC fronts -- OS, Browser, Office Software -- Microsoft's share has been gradually chipped away for about 2-3 years straight with virtually no interruption. We're not talking big spikes here at...

    Windows 7 Usage Passes All Versions of Mac OS X

    in Microsoft Discussion on 28 November 2009

    I'm far more interested in Mac OS (all forms) vs. Windows OS (all forms) battle. Mac OS has been growing steadily, and as has been mentioned, [i]thus far[/i] Windows 7 hasn't seemed to have blunted the progress. Of course, this progress is coming at 1-2% adoption per year, but add that progress up over a decade, and Mac would suddenly have 1/4 to 1/3 marketshare....

    Nintendo has lost the core market this generation

    in Nintendo Discussion on 29 September 2009

    I largely agree with the OP, except where he calls Sony/MS more "adept" at maintaining the hardcore market. They've collectively lost ~6 billion dollars this generation. It's really easy to seem "Adept" when you can just brush off gigantic losses of that magnitude because you're so freaking huge....

    What the hell is up with infamous

    in Sales Discussion on 07 September 2009

    There are a lot of ways to appeal to people. Some games appeal very strongly to a small subset of people, but are very unattractive to everyone else. In such cases, the people who absolutely love the game can't understand why everyone else doesn't love it. Another consideration is that highly derivative games tend not to sell as well as the games they are copying. A great example of this is...
