As much as I like Nintendo, it's gonna bomb. I guess its just the 360 and PS3 who are in it now... In the states its all about power and graphics.
The Revolution will not be. . . Who knows.
Nintendo said expect underwhelming and they delivered in spades. Now let's hope they can at least deliver compelling content in spades. It's going to take more than a controller gimmick to get #2 back from MS.
That's more my price range, anyway.
I won't see a ps3 for YEARS AND YEARS.
I don't have the advantage of using my college loan change check for buying frivilous things.
Now I'm trying to pay off my college loans that I bought frivilous things with.
"Readers discouraged by Revolution's seeming lack of horsepower when compared to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 should remember that Nintendo is not interested in competing in the high-definition gaming arena, and as a standard-definition console, Revolution is more than capable. Capcom's Resident Evil 4 remains one of the most gorgeous games this generation and it ran on GameCube, a console at least half as powerful according to developer reports.
Software houses we spoke with also waxed on the immediate advantage to Nintendo's approach with Revolution, which is, of course, system price. Every developer was in agreement that Revolution should launch with a price tag of $149 or lower. Some speculated that based on the tech, a $99 price point would not be out of the question. "
RE4 still looks as good as most of the 360 games I've seen running first hand, or really close at least.
If the Revolution does twice that of the Cube, then fantastic. I already think the games look amazing, and am completely underwhelmed by the 360 and PS3.
And at the 149 price point, who the heck could possibly think Nintendo is going to bomb out? I think they're about to outfox their competition...
Just wait until you see people stop at the Revolution kiosk's, as they have to try the new controllers for themselves.
But then, if it's graphical power that wins console wars, the Xbox should have won this generation, and the PSP shouldn't be getting it's butt kicked in sales by the DS.
When was the last time you heard a rich brat scream about innovation and gameplay? I'm just being a realist. This generation of gamers wants violence, on-line play and most of all GRAPHICS. Dreamcast was cheap and a good system. It also came out with a bunch of new concepts, and look what happened.Originally Posted by TheFightingFoetus
Personally I am more excited about Revolution. The games Nintendo makes are always excellent. With great and legendary creators behind the Revolution I'm sure this will continue. The controller may be unconventional, but its also time for a change in the world of games. Its about time someone tried a new kind of controller, and this one looks excellent in my mind.
I will be getting a PS3 before anything else because, well, lets face it, Sony is the best (yea thats right). Most well rounded library, most support, and with the new wirless controllers PS3 will be poised to take over the multiplayer market, even if thats being made obsolete from online play (which I personally don't go for).
Xbox is like Maxim magazine, its for little boys. The games are all totally average except for Halo, and Halo is pretty average. I bought an Xbox the day it came out and I only ever bought Halo, Halo 2, and SOuld Calibur II. I have played a TON of other games on rental and I thought they were all prttey sub par.
Besides this whole argument is totally moot since we havn't seen much in the way of the games and thats all that matters.
And if you think that americans only care about graphics and power, then why is the DS beating the PSP? Better games, thats why.
If you're so evil...EAT THIS KITTEN!!!
