Default Re: Nintendo about to mess up new console?

Nintendo is working on some new gameplay feature that will not lend itself to multiplatform titles. But I think Nintendo said Revolution will be backwards compatible with GameCube, so a traditional means of playing games is probably supported as well. I guess if a 3rd Party wants to make a game with the new gameplay feature, that game will not lend itself to being ported to other platforms.

Revolution will probably have an IBM CPU and ATI VPU (like GameCube). Hopefully, its at least as powerful as Xenon (Xbox 2) plus this new gameplay thing. I'm kind of excited.

There biggest mistake was selling Rareware to Microsoft. Nintendo died the day they did that imho.

I disagree. Rare has not shown anything worth while since Golden Eye and Perfect Dark for the Nintendo 64 IMO. No sence in keeping a company that seems to make only 3 good games a console life span.

So StarFox: Dinosaur Adventures didn't beat the million sales mark according to you then? Starfox: DA is quite fun IMO and it really shows off what the GCN is capable of, i just wish it didn't take so damn long to come out.

Thats not what I am really saying. My whole point was that there games come out to far and in between. Even if StarFox sold a million they didnt help Nintendo's console because Nintendo it'self decided not to re-new there contract because they were not producing. Gamecube from there relationship should have seen another Donkey Kong Country, Killer Instinct, Banjo Kazooie, Perfect Dark or the greatest FPS ever made GoldenEye but all it saw was a Great that there going to MS and I think Perfect Dark 2 will own them all but still I think they let Nintendo down. I also think MS will see that the 500 million dollars they paid for them was not worth it in the long run after only 3 games are released in the Xbox and XBox Next life span.

I completely agree.

Rare's new game, Cameo, looks like a little kiddy game that might sell 100 copies total. The mistake, was in Microsoft buying Rare...not in Nintendo selling them.

The DS looks stupid, and Zelda wouldn't be ghey if it wasn't the 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000th Zelda game.

THERE IS ONLY ONE good thing about Nintendo, right now, and it's that their head honcho told Steve Ballmer to lick his yellow balls. I nearly bought a gamecube solely because of that, however I realized all the GC games are teh suck and I went with xbox instead.

They could make 20 super marios and I would careless cause all of them so far as been on point except the one for gamecube which I thought sucked. All the marios have felt different while at the same time being mario. Who says more mario?
