do you think nintendo will make a comeback with their next machine, or do you think that playstation will beat their ass just like every other time?

nintendo ftw, last time i checked, the ps3 was very expensive, and since the ps3 is goona use blue ray or something like that disks, i guess games are gonna be more expensive

They may be the most successful company of all time, but with the last gen consoles, the PS2 sold massivly compared the the 'cube.

Anyway, I think the Wii will certainly make things interesting. We haven't seen a change like the controller since 3D. Things will certainly be interesting. And I'm sure, at least I hope, Nintendo will stick to their policy of making things cheap, unlike the PS3, which will mean more people go for the Wii. I know I certainly will.

And the various game boys sold similarly to the ps2. Then there's all the games...

Oh, and the gamecube was no less successful with adults, and no more targeted at children than any other nintendo console. Less so, if its abundance of survival horror games is anything to go by. Why people insist on repeating that blatant lie over and over is beyond me.

^ Gamecube wasn't even a commercial failure anyways. Nintendo always made a profit on their hardware. Even though it didn't outsell the PS2, it still made nintendo some money.

Oh yeah, Nintendo are probably the most successful now. Their DS is selling like crazy everywhere.

"Serious" games aren't all that fun. "Kid's" games are great, like Pikmin, and Super Smash Brother's. I greatly enjoyed them.

Their profits have always been higher than sony's. They sell more consoles, they make money on the ones they do sell, and they sell more games.

And red steel does look insane.

what! the xbox control pad was erganomically sh*t! the playstations ones weren't too special either. they weren't bad but the gamecube control pads were a hell of a lot more comfortable. they're so much more comfortable i didn't even think people would think anything else. i do admit that the gamecube ones don't look to great though.

I was unaware that Nintendo needed to make a comeback...as far as I know, they're doing fine as it is.

The name "wii" still annoys me, but I might get it anyway. Red Steel looks great.

As I said in a previous thread, Nintendo has been screwing things up with all their systems for a few years. Might be marketting strategy, might be purely by accident.

All I know is that "Wii" has created insane contreversy and made me look into the console a little more... now I want it.

Of course Nintendo'll pwn. As always.

And every other time, you say? Did they beat them with the NES or SNES? No, 'cos they weren't even fucking making games at those times.

yeah, im mainly talking about the n64 and gamecube. Back in the day they were huge, but now it seems playstation are betting them with popularity and sales. I myself love both consoles, but it just seems as though everytime a new machine launch happens, sony wins.

"They're" is present tense. If sony is beating them on sales it's only been in the last year or so when I stopped paying attention. Popularity is pretty useless if it doesn't lead to sales.

um, popularity does lead to sales. You cant honestly say that nintendo are doing better than sony at the moment. I think they should develop more games for an older audience aswel as their classics like mario and zelda. Im not saying they dont have any adult games, just not enough. Just look what happened to the dreamcast.

Playstation 2 is nearing the end of its life. The sale of units is falling because its at the end of its product lifecycle. I think they are gonna get their asses kicked by the competition. The PS3 is too damn expensive.

Edit - I could not give a rat ass if they didn't have any adult games. I've always had more fun playing 'kiddy' games like SSBM or Mario.

I can say they are. Last time I checked, PS2's were breaking down left, right and center and the DS is absolutely destroying the PSP in sales.

As long as there are casual gamers, the Playstations will always do well with their lack of innovation, and general mediocrity.

Personally, I couldn't care less how well or badly the Wii sells in comparison to the PS3, so long as the game quality is up to Nintendo's usual standard. Although I'm pretty sure that the 360 will outsell them both by far.
#38
^So far, numbers are showing otherwise. The 360 isn't doing nearly as well as people thought it would.

Quite frankly, the 360 hasn't done anything to amaze me. Except GRAW... GRAW's sick.
#39
They really need to cut the price of it. Take advantage of the head start that benefited the PS2 so much.

It's bound to attract the more FPS-oriented gamers, anyway. Other than Metroid Prime and a select few others, Microsoft seem to have something of a monopoly on decent FPSs.

Then you were incorrect to say that sony are more popular.

They are doing better. Their hardware sales figures are not as good, but their software sales figures are far better and their overall profits are also better.

Nintendo has just as many 'mature' games as anyone else.
