A lot of people ignore those they don’t like or whose opinions they don’t agree with. If you ever want to learn and expand your thinking you can’t do that. This is why I hold my breath and hope to not be a fuming pile of anger ash after each episode of this guy and why I keep sharing them here.
1) Worldwide release dates. When it comes to leaderboards, I don’t see how much a headstart is going to benefit anyone. So they get their name at the number 1 spot before someone else, its not like there is an end date.
Two, it just seems like such a moot point to argue because of what Marcus basically said. It’s a middle man thing, and it’s not done out of greed or spite, but just business. As of recently, I’m just glad some games got over seas in the first place.
2) Console gaming ruining PC gaming. Sigh…I guess. I mean, I know where this is coming from. I bought Sonic Generations off of Steam because it was a bargin. The game is nigh unplayable without a controller. Then I got an Xbox 360 controller for my PC and suddenly it’s not a problem anymore.
This is, such, a, conflicting, subject because I sympathize with PC only gamers who just want a well-thoughtout port, not just a file dump of in game assets with a sign like this:
At the same time, to call it a “console disease” or anything like is kind of holding your nose a bit too high in the air. Right now it just seems like consoles are more popular and they don’t overheat a computer as often as a Steam games (at least for me). Also, my experience with Steam games or other PC ports has ever been a bad one.
3) Nintendo’s and the Wii U? I guess? Knowing the price now wouldn’t effect my decision to buy it or not. I mean, if someone really wants it they’ll just save up now right? I don’t really know what to think because it seems like such a big deal for such a small, really inconsequential piece of information. But I can see where those who would like to know, investors for example, or retailers, so that they can properly plan ahead for the future. Maybe Nintendo is flip flopping between final pricing because after their “people seemed like they would pay $250 for a 3DS” turned into “turns out very few people would pay $250 for a 3DS”, I would be trying to gauge exactly where people’s enthusiasm for the Wii U is.
They aren’t dumb. I know that for a fact. Between the 3DS launch and the PS3 launch, I’m sure a company like Nintendo knows that extreme, over the top enthusiasm does mean they will shut up and give them their money. I predict about $300-$350 in terms of pricing. Maybe I’m being optimistic, but just from what I’ve seen on the internet, people will probably not like paying for what they think is Nintendo catching up to this generation technology wise and paying a lot more for it.
