I think Sony has some solid exclusive games, probably better than Xbox overall, but really to say Xbox’s exclusives can’r compete with Sony’s is kinda pushing it. Halo 2 HD will probably outsell the entire inFamous series. Both have solid first party games.

I mean yeah, not saying the PS4 has had less sales here.

Like seriously guys, any more of these hot takes and you’re going to burn down the site.

That’s odd, especially in financial reports to shareholders they would need to re-adjust the cash flows back to shipped numbers anyway.

Sony uses shipped too. pretty much every manufacturer does, as they make their money selling to 2nd hand stores like Amazon and Gamestop, not directly to the consumer.

In other news, the Flyers just offered the NHL 14 Disk used in the simulation a $30 mill contract for 6 years. Still probably can play defense better than MacDonald.

kinda a niche game to begin with. Maybe if the first Uncharted wasn’t such a bust, we’d see more games like that, or maybe is the sales were better we’d see more AAA games, or maybe it’s just that the majority of people don’t want a “console on the go”(even most of the people here that love the Vita only play the ports and non AAA games).

I bought Animal Crossing digitally because it was a game I would play “every day”, now I can’t think of why I would buy a portable game physically ever again. kinda wish all my older 3DS games were bought on the eShop(well, maybe not Fire Emblem, because those games hold up their value really well).

I didn’t know the Vita was dying?

Sales figures? Like I said above, just because a few individual people really like something doesn’t make it a bust.

But the question was what would entice more people to buy the Vita, and I gave my answer for what would make me buy one. I’m sure it’s good for you, I have a WiiU and love it. But just because I like it doesn’t mean it’s without faults and can’t be made better for more mass appeal.

1) Not really

2) don’t have a PS4 yet(though Im thinking about it, but don’t see the need to play games on the go when I have a million other portable systems with great games)

3) Ports are fine, but when I can buy FFX HD for my already in house PS3 for $40, or buy a Vita, FFX HD, an expensive memory card, and all that is about $350, then yeah, It’s not a benefit.

games that aren’t ports really. Only original game that interest me for it is Gravity Rush. Yeah, persona and FFX are good, heck, great games, but I can play them on my PS3 too. Yet to find a game that makes me say “yes, I need that game!”.

Well in 1998, I just didn’t know or care about games like Phantasy Star, too busy playing Altered Beast and Golden Axe. As for Chrono Trigger, I’ve played and loved it, but that was years after this fact. Didn’t get a SNES until a few years ago actually, first played Trigger on an emulator and then downloaded it from the Virtual Console. I did have Dragon Warrior on my NES, but I was 6 or 7 when I first played it.

I’ve gone back and played most of the classics, but outside of Pokemon, my love for JRPG’s grew the most in the Dreamcast/PS2/Gamecube era.

I didn’t get in JRPG’s till late. Had an NES and N64 at my moms house, and a Sega Genesis at my Dads, none of them are really known for their classic JRPG’s. When my dad finally got a Playstation, I got Chrono Cross, because somebody said it was played like Pokemon and I fucking loved Pokemon as a kid. So I grew into the genre late. When I got my Gamecube, I was searching hard for good jrpg’s to play on it, and Tales of Symphonia was one of the ones I got my hands on. Fantastic game. I’m not in the market for the HD remake personally, but if this is your best option for playing it, I’d recommend it.

Honestly I expect Smash fans that own both a 3DS and a WiiU will buy both, having the portable version on the go and the home version as the hardcore experience. I know that’s my plan anyway.

What will Wii u owners play during the summer time? Especially for those who are not planning on buying mk8 or get bored of it easily after the past 3 months?

Nintendo releasing a game that a minority of gamers doesn’t enjoy isn’t a problem for Nintendo really. Not saying it’s your fault either, but when they release a game like Mario Kart, they are releasing a game that most Nintendo fans are going to enjoy months on end.

As for why it’s latter, most likely its because the graphical output on the 3DS is a lot lower than the WiiU. I expect both games to be hefty for their respective system, but I bet the overall size of the WiiU version will trump the 3DS version.

Even outside of the logistics, what benefit would Nintendo get from releasing their most anticipated game of 2014 for both systems at the same time? By having a large gap between releases, they can capitalize on sales more-so than having them both release on the same day, where sales would be split between the two versions. It’s not like Smash is a 3rd party game, where the sales difference between systems doesn’t matter

Yup, because keeping the simpler, almost complete game in warehouses for 1/2 a year is totally the smart decision to make why they wait for the WiiU version to be completed……..

FFV was announced BEFORE FFXIII was actually released. Seriously, I remember picking up FFXIII and talking to the girl at gamestop about Vs XIII.

Comment

I was more or less saying that, if you bought a PS4 bundle with a FPS game in it, it too would basically institute the extra charge. basically, if you’re into online games, the extra charge for the online fee shouldn’t really count, regardless of the system.

Well, if you wanted to play Titanfall on PS4, you’d be forced to pay the $50 anyway. It’s a downfall of the game, not the system.
