Price drops and that, current ones posted here
Amazon £149.99 posted
First party franchises to other platforms. Extremely interested to see what happens.
Then there would be no point in owning a Nintendo.
They could do a Sega
The less systems I've to purchase the better, but I really wouldn't want Ninty t' go the route of Sega. Not because they're forced to via anythin' like financial issues, at the very least. As the article mentions it'd spiritually destroy the company for years t' come and probably even distance the fanbase. I also dread t' think what'l happen if both Sony and Microsod's machines are utter **** and I'll need t' buy one of 'em to get my Nintendo fix.
My nightmares aside, like hell this'l happen. :lol:
Sebastian is having his wildest wet dream, in no lifetime will Nintendo start making first party titles on other platforms it's been like that since the original NES days.
It's more like a fools wishful thinking than a rumor or speculation hoping to play Nintendo's AAA first party titles and franchises without purchasing Nintendo's hardware, right.
Iwata already stated despite the slow sales, the price for the Wii U will remain the same and for good reason since Nintendo is loosing money for every Wii U console sold.
If you've been with Nintendo since the NES days then you'd know the phrase, Get N or Get Out!..nuff said.
^They already did do.
Donkey Kong and Mario made it onto different platforms in the 8 bit days
^ Which was the last one? A lot of things have happened in the past, but it's not really relevant to modern times. The most non-Nintendo place you will see any of it's characters/franchises is on kids clothes or MK Arcade!
No price drop any time soon, but that depends what you see as soon. I could see one this holiday, or maybe same price with a Mario Kart or Mario Universe (one of these has to come this year) bundled in.
Even Sega games made it onto other consoles in the past
This weekend I held Shinobi on the NES in my hands
I don't think Nintendo will ever follow the path of Sega. They carry too many great 1st party titles to topple. I don't think the Wii U would cause something like that though.
I don't think Sega will ever follow the path of Atari. They carry too many great 1st party titles to topple. I don't think the Dreamcast would cause something like that though.
Ok maybe not
T' be fair, Sonic '06 might as well be known as "Sega's E.T".
Nar its Sonic Jam Game.com
So exactly how much is the price drop??
There isn't one. :lol: That article Bloke provided was just speculation.
Not yet anyway
Ya its a little soon for a drop.
£50 off in UK store Asda
... Have sales notably died down or somethin'?
Its not a official one..........YET!
I have seen this happen a lot, first places start selling it cheaper, then official price drop
sony's last console is the ps4 its their last ditch effort before they close up shop. from 100 billion dollar company to well under ten billion in 5 years that screams death and on the other hand ninty skyrocketed at the same time. they have been screaming ninty is doomed for years. and look they are still going. i can bet you anything the wii u will get a 50 dollar price drop when the ps4 hits or right before. if anyone is gonna go out of business it would be sony with their hundreds of millions dollars lost a year. cant run a company like that and survive. sad but true
