Iis there no thread on this already? 



Around the Network

There have been a couple of threads with general summaries of Nintendo's financial report, so this information is known already and simply wasn't deemed to be important enough to be spun off into its own thread.



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

Insane. Hoping the ps1 classic has this type of success



I finally got my hands on an NES Classic at Target this summer. And just yesterday, I picked up the SNES Classic at Target as well. I was playing Donkey Kong Country with my wife last night, which was nice because she doesn't play too many video games at all.

It most certainly is. Vgchartz is slacking.

I think this piece should be highlighted with a thread, cause it is about the success of classic consoles. With the PS1 classic coming up, it is very relevant.

Now on topic.

Has there ever been a more successful clone console? I think not. This shows how strong Nintendo's iconic brands are. I don't think Sony can sell these numbers with their PS1 classic, even if they had that dream line up.

I actually hope it doesn't.  Not because of console/brand wars, or anything petty like that.  Just because, I'm not impressed with the line-up Sony came up with to represent the system and is asking $100 for.  Judging by the flood of negative/under-whelmed reaction videos on YouTube, and the amount of comments in the thread here on VGChartz which echo those same reactions, I'm clearly not alone.  If the PS1 Classic sells gang-busters, it will send a message that these devices will sell no matter what games are on there, which I think is a terrible precedent to set.  I'd rather see it bomb, so that Sony will be forced to put more effort into curating a better library of software next time.  If they went with a stronger line-up of games like the NES & SNES Classic's both have, it would have been a no-brainer purchase for me.  I spent a lot of time playing and enjoying my first PlayStation, and I would have gladly bought a classic version of it that is representative of those experiences.  Unfortunately, what they are putting on the market right now is a definite pass for me.

I am very disappointing with it as well, but it's not like that if it doesn't sell well, they will revise it or something like that. So with that mentality, I just hope it does well. Plus, it will be hacked in 24 hours, so we will be able to have any ps1 game on it lol

I think with or without the ps1 classic this should be highlight. It's a major milestone for 2 classic consoles. We are on a VG sales site. Years ago this thread would have been made the second it was announced. Chartz is slacking big time and I'm sick of having to make so many threads to cover so many things.

I'm of the preference to let it fail and get it later in a bargain bin or something like that.  That way, Sony learns their lesson, and I don't overpay for a poorly curated product.
