Exactly. The so called "hardcore" gamers don't realize the pull Nintendo has. Only an idiot would categorize Ninty games as kids games.


can the kids go back to Nintendo thread? console wars is serious business.. only suitable for hardcore gamers.. :fear1:

If it was all about the IPs then even Wii U would have been another best selling console specially after the success of Wii ,same for gamecube .

 

On the go gaming option is the major reason for switch success . 

 

WiiU was the spiritual predecessor to Switch. It brought in the handheld portability factor as well, which was perfected on the Switch. 

You'll find A LOT of WiiU games remastered for Switch. Almost all Nintendo's 1st party WiiU catalogue is now on Switch, and has been doing well. 

 

There are quite a few well documented reasons for WiiU's failure (right from the confusing launch):

Edit: Forgot to mention, but what needs to be appreciated is that they just shone like a star after this failure. They had great games at or close to launch for Switch, they did perfect demos, the concept was quirky, unique and useful, and the numbers proved that they had an ace up their sleeves.

It's not only about the IPs but the way those IPs are experienced as well. Nintendo has it's flaws ofcourse but to say Nintendo is gonna go under because MS acquisitions is a stretch.

Console war is over son. 
It’s content war now. 
 

It ended as soon as M$ ditched the box & making investments with other mediums in mind.

Wow..... the acquisition really ticked off PS fanboys it seems. 

Only reason I can see for them to get ticked off is that they are UNABLE to have options to enjoy the games irrespective of platforms. I don't see any other reason why they are not happy because more games on GP seems like a great value. 

ALSO, if you are UNHAPPY with subscription based model, microsoft also sell the games in contemporary way.... Steam, Epic Games, Gamepass, XBOX physical and online. So when you have these options, why focusing your arguments on one time buy vs sub base model. Kharidlo physical ya digtal platform mein. Kisne mana kiya?

Get a friggin xbox or PC along with your PS ffs. If you cant do that, accept your bubble and move on. Stop giving retarded BS about Gamepass games doesn't have quality. Stop giving twitter justification and opinion. 

 

People are just venting here, as they seem to have an emotional attachment to Sony, and they are afraid PS era would end. 

 

FWIW, it's just a consumer electronics company guys, if one goes, another one takes its place,  life goes on.... Also, like someone said here, ninty is still surviving without any of the 3p dude bro shooters, so don't get so negative.  I think ps brand would continue to survive as long as there's demand for their games.

 

I for one, am happy with this news, as i expect lot more titles would be added to gamepass to enjoy on day 1.  I would never have played games like yakuza 0, desperados 3, firewatch or yakuza:like a dragon (current fav), without gamepass.  If anything, as a gamer this is good news as i get to play a lot many games which i wouldn't have otherwise.

You guys can’t really just think about yourself & say why are ppl cribbing. 
 

Everyone has their own reason to feel good or bad about this. 
Just as the ones feeling bad not questioning your excitement,you shouldn’t question their’s. 
 

Millions & Millions ppl buy Playstation & play only 3-4 games a year. 
Which could include FIFA,COD,Fortnight….along with 1-2 yearly First Party release from Sony like Uncharted,GoW,Spider-man. 
 

If you suddenly tell them that they won’t get FIFA or COD on their system (18m have already upgraded to PS5) & they have to find another means to get hold of their yearly game they are ought to get disappointed. 
 

Not everyone is into games that are showing up on GamesPass or even has the time to explore content on a platter. 
 

Everyone has their own reasons just like you do.

COD not going exclusive. MS has said so. Like Minecraft. Just revenue goes to MS.

 

Unlike Bethesda games where they said they would.

I never said Ms 

i just said sony and nintendo have to get with the times if they need to survive in the cloud world where all game can be played on a mobile phone and there wont be a need for a dedicated gaming console.

Many people bought stocks after the plummet. It's wise to buy stocks during that time to acquire more units. So obviously it will rise after that. Specially Sony because we are all betting Sony will come up with something. They might reveal some games!
