    Commercials for video games, fucking bullshit IMO. Sony wonders why they always get hacked, hmm I wonder...

    The DS destroyed the PSP, especially in software sales. That guy's crazy. Sony's handhelds are firmly in second place. Consoles are a different story at the moment, but I'd pretty much disregard anybody foreshadowing Nintendo's imminent demise.

    or how about that they've been sinking into red for the past 2 years.

    unless nintendo can pull their heads out of their ass they're going to end up as the next sega.
    Care to post a source that isn't speculation?

    Also, 3DS and DS both dominated PSP and Vita, so I don't even know why you'd bring that up.

    how do you spend time developing a console and end up doing that?

    Maybe they copyrighted it so no one else could use it, and they have no plans of ever doing it.

    This is how the console war ends. Not with a whimper, but an ad.

    You do realize he means Darksider's 2 in general as in, he's not allowed to discuss anything else.

    Also: http://www.videogamer.com/wiiu/alien..._u_can_do.html
    http://www.videogamer.com/wiiu/alien..._xbox_360.html

    Basically it's just words on words from different developers, as in, nothing is really set in stone, they aren't even allowed to disclose much, so to say it's fact when it's clearly uncertain is a little wrong, and I do realize this goes for me as well as you, but I don't give a shit about graphics, I'd take the demo Zelda they showed last year and I don't need anything better, hell SNES era was perfectly fine for me.

    The dev kits have doubled on power since that news and I doubt its on full power yet either.

    But well, comparing that PC's are almost 10 times as powerful as current gen consoles..
    But how are we going to improve anyway? The graphics these days are pretty and realistic already. Fitting I would say. Cant wait to see news how making games take couple years and hundreds of millions..sequel power.

    Edit: offtopic yeah yeah.

    This will be 90% surely just on free to play games, which I would like to see on consoles more.
    Also, if sony patents it.. at least others cant use it, right?

    Well, I don’t see why women are being blamed if man is stupid enough to really think they have red and gold eyelids.

    I like to think that's because Nintendo operated as a video game company during the 80s and knows just how bad things can get when taken for granted.

    Companies like Sony patent everything. Its a big step from patent to implementation. So I wouldn't be worried about it.. yet.

    Of course they can - they just need to pay for it.

    I don't really mind advertising in-game (as long as it's done correctly, e.g., no Coca Cola on WoW - US version of NFSU2 did it pretty nicely with all the bill boards and branding around, and), as long as it's not really intrusive.

    lol its already way past this generation and thats a fact, 3ds not selling better than vita? are you high? and no nintendo are not sinking in the red as they have only had 1 loss (which is thanks to the yen, and the development of 2 consoles) and it was only about 500m and they have cash reserves of about 9-10 billion.. so going into the red? ha.

    nintendo the same as sega lol.. yeah alright.
    Dictated but not read.

    It's a patent and a lot of you guys are acting like it was patched in yesterday. Be a little less reactionary.

    No, Microsoft "pioneered" motion controllers with the Sidewinder Freestyle Pro in 1998, and even then it was a stupid gimmick that could only ever work properly with games designed for it, just like the Wii controller is now. To Nintendo, "innovation" means "be different" and who cares if it's better, worse or even remotely well thought out.

    And while I like to say this would make all future Sony hardware stillborn (because no gamer in their right mind wants to be interrupted in the middle of a game to see an ad about male enhancement or laundry detergent) I'm not sure if I could make that claim with how mainstream gaming has become as of late.
    Yet people go to facebook to be entertained and there's advertisement everywhere.

    IMagine this:

    End boss is at 5% health. Raid is rapidly dieing. Boss gets to 1K HP. You just need to cast that one nuke to get world first and you're the last man standing. Suddenly, an ad for VIAGRA pops up! WIPE!

    It does quite explicitly say that you'll be warned in advance, the game will stop and when it resumes, it might even rewind a few seconds.

    Which doesn't make it any less annoying, but still...

    Yea, kinda dumb. I don't care what it is, people like me will always find a way around something as stupid as this. I haven't watched, nor pay for cable purely because I can watch the show online, ad-free. Is it legal? No. Do I care? No. I'd be more than willing to pay for cable if there was no ad's. Obviously that will NEVER happen. Do I hurt the producers by doing it my way? Sure.

    Either way, I haven't seen an ad on any website, any video online, or on any show for years. I don't plan on starting to now. Advertising, as lucrative as it is and as much as I would despise people like myself if I was in the advertising field, doesn't phase me or even keep my interest to look at them, as much as people might say subliminally they do.

    I don't ever see it being put into a game because... well that would kill the game before it ever got released. I don't really see what all the hoopla is about with ads in games/software is though. Do any of you have smart-phones with free apps on then? It's the same thing.

    Well, at least it won't make it into MMOs then, considering the tech to make games rewind for X amount of people just isn't there and would be worse than actual rubber-banding. :P

    Not to turn this into a Nintendo vs competitor debate, but the only reason the Wii is so popular is primarily because of the price-tag and a very large portion of the games are designed for kids, which is a double win for Nintendo, no?

    I don't think any self-respecting console gamer can say they value the Wii over a Xbox or PS3?
