    I think they need to take a more holistic approach and build up the whole platform, having more high quality games should help, even if they're nowhere near blockbusters. They could also do a job on some Nintendo IP such as Starfox which would sell.

    It's a huge risk given that in three months they'll be a generation behind again. Why didn't they do it earlier?

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    I would say that an IP like Starfox would sell alone but then again if it really was a big seller Nintendo would have produced a new one before now surely?

    Did the Metal Gear IP shift units for Rising?

    Best thing to do is cane the demo. If you can get to grips with the combat after a few hours and enjoy it, I can promise you the full game is immeasurably better.

    9 missions with 3 stages each. The third stage of each mission has you facing off against the most ridiculously brilliant bosses.

    The demo is but part of one stage.

    If you love the demo, you WILL love the full game. I loved the demo, so while the game comes with my highest recommendation, because you have the demo available to you, use that as a starting point.

    *thinks*

    Ah fuck it, just buy, its awesome :)

    I nearly bit on the Zelda pack. I managed to stop myself with the following logic

    I haven't played a computer game for four months
    I couldn't be bothered with wind waker the first time. Great dungeons, shite overworld.
    I don't want a wii u.

    I reckon it will bring in some sales though

    I think that's very sound logic, especially not wanting a Wii U. Buying a Wii U is not something that a person who does not want a Wii U should do. Buying it with a game you also don't really want is also wise, especially when you're just not feeling like gaming at the moment.

    I was genuinely very tempted. Zelda limited edition controller. Cash in my pocket. If I get drunk enough I can see myself waking up to some order confirmation emails.

    You told her to do your deeds?

    ... if so, do it yourself!

    That's an excellent move imo, males (the GAME employee most likely) haggling with a female on trade in price changes the equation in your favour more often than not. Big business use the difference of the sexes/sexuality (and their objective) all the time to manipulate you in contract negotiations on all manner of things: like insurance renewals, mobile contracts, service agreements, house buying, etc. Good to see you turning the tables to eek out those extra pounds or 50pences, when buying a fantastic game.

    @vizzini GAME have set trade in prices, they dont negotiate unless you are doing trade in price matches.

    I'm also really enjoying Rayman. It's a pretty comprehensive offering.

    With retail and eshop combined though the console is straining under the weight of platformers.

    Why did they announce a price-cut that is basically effective a month ad a half from now? That seems stupid to me.

    I would be interested in the Lego bundle, but it's not out until end of October! The game is out a few months already, so don't see why they would need so much time.

    LCU, such a funny game. I think my fave bit was the Arnie cameo where he kept dropping the names of his films into the conversation. I was in stitches.

    Jesus Christ, the continuous river of plop that erupts from your mouth, no matter the subject matter at hand, is unreal.
    Haggling for trade in prices in Game? Erm no.
    You either except the God awful trade in price you're offered or mooove along! Man, Woman, makes no difference.

    I suspect vizz isnt a native uk resident. Just a hunch, so he may not be privvy to GAMEs tradition of ripping us off while pissing in our chips.

    Same here, I wonder if a late XBOX1 release date, Diablo 3 and GTA5 amd a early (I am finally working from home) will nail my ownership of a WiiU though....

    Still 250 is a brilliant price point......they may have left it to late though....
