    Apart from the sucky example (mass theft of Credit Card details/incompatible save games? Really?), I completely agree. It should be reported. That's why I posted.

    Sounds pretty cool, looking forward to it.
    That does indeed look awesome.

    In other news, I'm still enjoying ZombiU immensely. Going to be gutted when it ends as I doubt Il be interested in a second playthrough (very rarely play a game twice).

    In the article Pachter has doubts...So that should cement Wii U as doing very well in future...

    I think that rather than a price cut they'd benefit by finally adopting the same rates in Europe as they do in the US...

    Other stuff has been discussed as well, better marketing, more games, reduction of lag, adding proper player accounts and lower prices for decade (or more) old games...

    I think they'd benefit by dropping support for the WiiU and concentrating on a proper Durango / Orbis rival to release in c24 months' time. They're after 'the hardcore gamer' by their own admission, after all.

    Luckily, this seems to be Nintendo's thinking as well.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Lego City looks great!

    Hopefully the Wii U will make it until then. :p

    @LB:
    They won't...They'll give it just the support it needs but won't go overboard...
    Then release the successor 3/4 years after the others launch and have a few years of being the most powerful console around...

    Nintendo haven't had the most powerful console around since the SNES.

    "Exclusives are coming, but is it already too late? "
    Typically shit hyperbole from the EG of late.

    A console is out for 2 months and it's all over already?
    Shameful..

    Yeah, I thought about, but nah. I mean, in some ways yeah, but not really. The whole cart thing really limited it, despite the CPU being more powerful, and all the music was awful.

    Even the MD was actually more powerful than the SNES on paper. The CPU and graphics chip were both more powerful. It's just the SNES has some super clever stuff that allowed it to do funky rotations and more colours, so had better graphics despite being less powerful.

    NEO GEO was more powerful than both by far if that counts anyway.

    N64 was indeed the most powerful, but you had to be Rare or Nintendo to a) be able to afford to develop on cartridges and b) have a fucking clue how to use it.

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realise half of them are stupider than that

    Also the Atari Jaguar was a beast compared to the SNES thinking about it.

    Then I downloaded the update. That took three hours on a 25MB connection. Halfway through it doing that I downloaded a 1.5GB file on my laptop out of idle curiosity to see if it was my connection. That took 8 minutes. Update was eventually done in a shade over three hours.
    My connection isn't nearly that fast and the update took 35 minutes. I'm not UK-based mind you, I'm Australasia, maybe we have different servers (though I doubt it). Rayman demo took 15 minutes tops.

    The most annoying thing is not being able to turn the screen off. Playing NSMBU the only thing the screen does is show an exact replica of what's on the TV, it adds nothing. So the battery is being drained at an alarming rate plus I have the very distracting screen in my peripheral vision showing exactly what I'm looking at for no perceivable benefit.
    You can sleep mode it. Hit the Home button. Controller settings. Turn screen off. I play NSMBU multiplayer with my friend all the time, we turn the Gamepad off, but we use Wiimotes to control characters.

    @Armoured_Bear Pretty much. There's a couple of great games on the horizon and i've enough to go through as it is but you gotta chase those clicks with sensationalism.

    meh.

    That's a fair point. They have until the PS4 / Xbox 3 come out to really get people buying the console... should at least give it until then before writing it off completely.

    For the moment though, sales are absolutely horrific. Launch week was reasonable and then it died on its arse.

    I liked how the Jag wasn't able to cope with music and game at the same time.

    What about the 3DO? That was a beast. And I loved the way you had to daisy chain the controllers together for 2 UP as it only had one port for a controller.

    The CDi-I and the 3DO were kind of their own gen. I suppose you could argue things like the Mega-CD and Jaguar-CD were also part of that gen.

    Basically there was a short little false start for the CD gen before Saturn and PSX came along and did it properly. And Nintendo didn't.

    I'm not sure where I've read it but the Gamecube had something in its graphics processor that was superior to Xbox (and oviously PS2). Something to do with effects if I recall correctly. Would love it if someone has more information on this

    Someone should do a "Poorest ever console design decisions" thread, if one has never been done. I would put the my 3DO controller daisy chain in it. I am sure there are others. No headphone jack with Gameboy SP? No power adaptor with 3DS XL. Erm - others.
