    Another take on this:

    1) Nvidia is the graphics powerhouse behind the PS3
    2) PS3 sales are hurting
    3) Nvidia stocks are hurting because PS3 sales are hurting (fact!)

    In other words, nvidia and Nintendo are market enemies. Of course they'd say this.

    I already said there is a whole load of versions of this quote flying about. I read one version (think it was on GoNintendo) where Nintendo wasn't even mentioned.

    Adding in some sort of Nintendo rivalry just creates something for people to get all hot and bothered about, do you all really believe that if you asked an ATI manager (yes those people who produce chips for the Wii) are graphics important he would say "christ no, graphics mean **** all, I hope my company progresses no further, is surpassed by other graphics companies and goes out of business and I have no job in the future". Of course he wouldnt. In fact the Nvidia chap even says that some games have gone all out on graphics whilst ignoring gameplay and thats not the way to do it.

    Sure he makes a bad comparison with HD TV and Black and white telly but his point is valid, we have to strive forward or theres no point making or playing games anymore. There is still plenty of potential in all the new consoles as long as producers dont get lazy on what they are doing (Far Cry anyone? )

    Graphics still have a long way to go before saturation point. If you watch a really well acted film you can connect with the people in it through their facial expressions and how they move, I am yet to see a game where I connect with any character. Zelda did quite a good job through their story telling but most of the time the characters just looked slightly shocked whether they are happy, sad, orgasming or about to die and that isnt good enough (that and the tacked on wii controls that are in all fairness a bit crap ).

    Of course graphics matter. Good graphics make it easier to create awesome games. But that's not to say the only awesome games are those which have better graphics.

    Wind Waker and Ocarina of Time weren't too far apart, and Wind Waker had easily higher quality graphics, yet people very frequently preferred Ocarina of Time.

    It is no supprise, after all PS3 does use their graphics chip. Anyway I think his compairson of the TV makes no sense. Nintendo never said that graphics should jump backwards over gamplay (black/White TV vs. color tv comparison). Nintendo stated that graphics doesn't need to be all that great to make a game good. Graphics has pretty much reach a level at the current state that gameplay should be the main focus. Nintendo never said that graphics should revert to the NES days. Such a stupied compairson.

    This has got to be the most sense ive ever heard in my life...amen to that

    YES, Graphics matter, but no where near as much as gameplay. The thing about
    the black&white 7" tv is stupid. It's like saying if pacman had high-def or pong instead of little paddles it had a high-def picture of some p0rn would make it x100 better even though it gets old quick and is repetitive.
