I have no idea what you’re talking about with the Blu-ray fees, so link to information if possible. You’re a Sony employee? I don’t doubt you or what you’re saying, but I’d be curious in seeing whatever info you can provide directly so I don’t make the same mistake again.
Still doesn’t change the probability that Nintendo wouldn’t ever use Blu-ray.
Hah, no. Sony developed Blu-ray tech in-house with help from Philips. Regardless of what Wikipedia says, I just did a trademark search and all live Blu-ray trademarks were registered by Sony. Yeah, they started the Blu-Ray Disc Association to ensure the success of the format by bringing other companies on board, but Sony paying the BRDA would be like paying themselves. You don’t pay licensing fees to an association you’re a part of.
And Nintendo would never support Blu-ray. They’d sooner go back to cartridges as Miku is suggesting.
So are you suggesting that movies be sold on a Nintendo-proprietary cartridge format that fits into a 3DS slot? I can’t see film companies supporting a format that can only be used on a relatively poor-selling game console.
But I understand we’re talking about impossible dreams. :)
This has gone WAY TOO FAR because of the irrational fear that your privilege has become a disability. Women involved professionally in games, a small population, get totally harassed on a regular basis and say something, so suddenly all men in the industry are at risk of unemployment. We need to turn the tide back on these SJWs before our vast majority becomes a less vast majority! Yeah not really.
Terrible week for gaming culture, absolutely. But Nintendo’s trying to make it up to us!
Blu-ray on Nintendo? I doubt they would ever put a Sony technology in their consoles, regardless of how useful it would be.
I realized a few years ago that the knockoffs were those colors because they were imitating the original Japanese/European SNES colors. Looks cheap to me as well.
If you’ve never played it and don’t know who the character is, then no, there’s no reason for you to be excited. Do you always need to be told to be excited or not?
The more I read about the new features, the more I want one. Kotaku has a lot more detail and more pictures of the new stuff. Faster CPU, NFC, face-tracking 3D, auto-brightness. They all sound good to me.
Haha, I find the colorful controllers uglier. I liked the theme the U.S. SNES had going on.
Am I the only one who never saw a Super Nintendo controller with those colorful buttons until a couple years ago? My SNES had lavender buttons. If the U.S. versions of these 3DSs have buttons that match the U.S. SNES, I might be tempted to get one.
I mean, they look cool, but I see no real reason to upgrade from the 3DS XL I bought in November. The nub and some extra buttons don’t seem terribly important.
A game using framing and composition sounds great. The fact that it’s about an important topic and will challenge people to use their brains creatively and critically makes it even better.
Even as a writer and recording artist, I don’t really have a good grasp of the creative process that goes into recording voice work for games, TV, or movies, so I found this a really interesting read. Not that I expected to read anything different, but the professionalism and talent exhibited by the voice actors seems superb.
