damn it, hit submit too soon, meant to correct where i say the Wii is 1 generation behind the next gen, not that it's behind the 360 & PS3.
Try again? If you looked at the link you referenced, it talks about the Wii. This article is about the Wii U. Two different consoles.
It didn't survive against the XBox 360 and PS3
The Wii U is 1 generation ahead of the 360 & PS3, so why are you comparing the Wii U to consoles 2 generations ahead of it? We don't even have it's generation of consoles out yet, besides it.
So I thought you were talking about the Wii (even considered you meant the gamecube) even though it's only 1 generation behind the 360 & PS3.
Unless you are thinking that the Wii, Xbox 360 & PS3 aren't the same generation? Then you don't know what you are talking about. They are the same generation.
So, my bad on missing your point, but your wording really thru me off.
I would be extremely happy of being able to play the next Mario on something else than a Nintendo console. I bought the Wii just for Super Mario Wii, I loved the game, but now I have a white piece of plastic doing nothing underneath my TV.
It's not going to happen, but it would be very nice.
I bought my Wii to play emulators on it.
Anyways, Nintendo isn't going to get out of the hardware business. They are really successful at it. Sometimes they put out flops (Virtual Boy), sometimes gimmicks don't pay off (3DS), and sometimes the software isn't there. But here's the problem with Game Developers. They are greedy, stupid, and really fucking lazy. Instead of making the best game they can for each platform, they try to make 1 game that works on all platforms. Since the Wii U is a bit underpowered compared to the Xbox One and PS4 (and computers), developers don't want to make games for it, because it will require a little more work. Sort of like when the port console games to the PC they make it work, just barely. Not surprisingly you'll find mouse controls barely work, you can't adjust video settings, FoV is screwed up, etc. I'm sure most of you PC gamers know exactly what I'm talking about. Sometimes they fix it, lots of time they don't care.
What Nintendo needs to do is get more In House Developers, like back in the day, to make some great games.
It didn't survive against the XBox 360 and PS3
Wow, either the fanboys are out, or a lot of stupid is going around.
That's a simple list and you'll find that the Wii has sold about 20 Million more consoles then the Xbox 360 & PS3.
Checked other links and those numbers seem accurate.
You do understand what I am saying? More people bought a Wii. Pretty good for a console you claimed didn't survive.
in about 2-4 years the next console will hit the market, and all the fanboys will be over the new thing once again.
consume, dont think.
Except it was 7 years between consoles this last round. No wonder you posted as a coward.
I was told I used too much bandwidth on a 6mbps DSL line. No warning, just turned it off. Got them to turn it back on, which a week later they shut it down and told me to go elsewhere. So I did. While I didn't do 77TB of data in a month, apparently I hit 1.5TB on my highest month. Which I don't find to be that much, not for someone who spends 16 hours a day on his computer at home.
Anyways, now i have a much faster internet and supposed to have a cap of 450gb a month.
Guess no one will be renting Xbox One games either. I know back in the day I'd rent games I'd be thinking about buying.
But then, maybe no one rents games anymore. Well, we know they won't be renting Xbox One games.
"In a free market"... What utter BS. "Finders keepers" is a fine argument for the schoolyard, but it's moral value is negligible. Ownership rights come with responibilities, especially ownership rights to unique resources. If a party decides to take ownership of something with the sole purpose of ransoming it to an owner who will actually use it, that is not "free market" - it's exploitation.
"Free market" only works when the market is actually free. Ransoming a unique resource is not the free market in action.
So you saying it's illegal to buy property with the intent of selling it to someone else for a profit? Really?
Maybe now they will stop thinking of Cell Phones as a "trusted" device. It's not really. Very easy to lose, very easy to steal, and it's supposed to be a trusted source for two factor authorization?
In a move unlike a patent troll, he asks for the companies to help him with his legal fund. Until now, he shared it for free, but with a 50m legal defense cost and the USA Government charging him, the question is, where will he take it from here?"
Let's all pretend the last 80+ years of science didn't happen and we live under Newton's ideas of how everything behaved. Who's in?
I'm sure some of the various religions will be glad to join your thinking (if they aren't already there).
I guess no one will be renting Xbox One games to check out anymore, since the "used disk" fee will pop up.
I'm firmly in the single-player, offline-only game-play camp
So what you're saying is that you're prefer masturbation, over getting involved with other people... Anti-socialism, we get it, this is
tbh, I prefer masturbating on people.
4 cores + HT is the most that Intel offers for desktops at the moment
Nope. Intel offer 6 core desktop CPUs.
remembering that until late last year Intel's mobile i7 CPUs didn't even support more than 4GB
Oh really? Well my 2011 laptop with a Core i7 2630QM and 16GB of RAM disagree. You are a liar.
What else is there for physical media?
Flash and download.
What were you planning to put on it?
Games, at about 12-25GB each. Movies, at about 5GB each. Music, at about 300MB per album. Photos, at about 5MB each. Apps, which will vary.
Hey, dumbass. It's 2013, and you are quoting a 2011 laptop? Seriously? You are stupid.
Funny how my 500$ pc i bought last year is unable to play any games i have on xbox. And when it does they usually run and look like shit.
forgot to add this in my last reply. Pretty much all the Xbox ports to PC sucks and runs bad, so it's not a surprise.
