Forums - Gaming Discussion - Wii/DS are the best product lines or why every other line should be ignored

DKII said:
That must've taken some effort to put together then.

Translated:

"The Wii and the DS are two great pieces of hardware which both offer their own unique control inputs and
gaming experiences. The industry was ready for a very drastic change as is evidenced by the recordsetting
hardware sales of both platforms. The industry is seeing unexperienced growth which can mostly attributed to
Nintendo's systems. Nintendo's success isn't solely based on the input devices of the Wii and the DS, it's the
hardware working together with the software that is creating the experience a lot of people have been seeking
for a long time.

Once 3rd parties understand this, their games will get better and be able to match the quality of Nintendo's 1st
party games. The DS has already shown that good games sell accordingly and rewarded 3rd parties with
successes. Due to lower development costs compared to their competition, both Nintendo systems are much
more profitable to make games for. The Wii and the DS should get tons of games in the next years and with a
huge amount of games, there naturally will be a lot of good and great ones among them.

Wow, I'm literally amazed.



I don't need your console war.
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor.
You're power hungry, spinnin' stories, and bein' graphics whores.

NO NO, NO NO NO.

Uhhh.... what DKII?

I can't take credit since someone above me already pointed it out, but if you look at the title of the thread it says to ignore every other line. So I did. :P



How dare you trick this way once again, Roland. Go Wi-Fi and get ready to get creamed on Mario Kart Wii!

... Okay, I'll let you off the hook this time :P

You are of course exaggerating some of your points a bit (especially in the title hehe), but in general you are of course right. 3rd parties have a long way to go if they want to make big profits with the current budgets they're using for making big games.

However, I think it will take a while. One thing that I have observed in the past few months is that many people in this industry (at least management and strategists) aren't terribly bright. From analysts to the managers of most gaming companies, there just seems to be a lower average IQ than in other businesses.

EDIT - regarding the joke, it doesn't work that well here... maybe because of my resolution? Anyway, you got me, you've been upping your game lately! :D

Well, if this is a joke thread, consider me snagged. I think Rol's pretty on point. Mind you, there'll still be plenty of good stuff coming out for all the systems, including the PC, and I don't think I'm alone when I say I intend to 'collect them all' as soon as I can afford to. But I can't really disagree with anything Rol just said.

I am totally puzzled myself. How was it detected so early on that it is a joke thread? Probably it was the high level of fanboyism in the OP, something I don't show in my other posts. Because it sounds so over the top, it must be a joke thread.

But since I tend to hide clues in my joke threads, can anyone tell me what they are in this one?


It is not a joke thread. For Rol, once in  a while the internal pressure of fanboy hate and Ninty Lapdog obedience become too great and he has to let it all out in one big pile of smelling fanboy feces. Thats why he makes these "joke" posts. And to not tarnish his reputation and get him uncovered for the fanboy he is, he the claims these to be funny joke posts. But yes, he and evil ninty have an agenda here...

The only fanboys are the people who hate other consoles to help them feel better about their own.

 

It is a joke though, start the first line, then skip every other one and see what the original post says then.

Sarcasm is also often a kind of joke ;)

It took me about 40 minutes to write the OP and despite using the "preview post" feature, not everything lined up correctly once I posted this thread. I had to edit the OP five times to fix it. I also had trouble to fit the thread title within the size limit, hence the slash between Wii and DS. The title as it is uses up all 75 characters.

Originally I had planned to fill the other lines with more fanboyism, but some parts fell out either because they were going too far or just because they didn't fit the sentence structure. Ignoring every other line then would reveil that it's a perfectly reasonable post.

@Faxanadu

Lately you have shown a lot of hatred towards me and Austria. I don't want to imagine what would happen if my country beats yours at Euro 08. You know it could happen, think Cordoba.



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