it's happened with the SNES/Genesis, the NES/SMS (though most people didn't know the latter even existed until it was long dead, or at least I didn't).


In terms of sales, the SMS meant absolutely nothing. The real competition in Japan was NES vs. NEC's PC Engine. In the US, Nintendo was the standard, with no real competition to speak of.

Just wanted to point that out.

Will there be a PS4? Perhaps, but not a PS5.


Yeah, maybe because the name will get unoriginal. However, if there IS a PS5, I would LOVE to have the contact info for this article's author in ten years and just shove it in his face.

This article is just filled with presumption and analyzing "market trends" that, at the end of the day, will mean next to nothing.

Terrible article.

2583  The Rest / General Discussions / Nazis reclaiming control in Germany on: December 15, 2006, 02:33:33 PM
That's a really scary story. I just watched the film "Sophie Scholl: The Final Days", and I thought "at least Germany doesn't resort to those sorts of tactics anymore." Oh wait...

at least they're not being executed. ^^

No US publisher has even been named for Vth Vanguard, so it's unlikely we'll get as swift a release as what XSEED did with 4. Though, if it does come to the US, I hope XSEED is the one that does it. They did an excellent job with WA4, as they also did with Shadow Hearts: FTNW.

I've listened to the opening single from Nana Mizuki, I like it (expect a soundtrack review). You should consider offering up an import reader review for the site if the game really tickles your fancy.

Busted. Nailed. Snagged. As many of you have figured out (maybe our speech was a little too funky fresh???), Peter isn't a real hip-hop maven and this site was actually developed by Sony. Guess we were trying to be just a little too clever. From this point forward, we will just stick to making cool products, and use this site to give you nothing but the facts on the PSP.

Sony Computer Entertainment America


Hmmm...hmm.......what if it's actually a double-hoax, and the people that made the site weren't some lame kids OR Sony, but actually a group who designed the site JUST to be debunked and then claim to be SCEA.

ULTRA-CONSPIRACY-THEORY!

That apology just doesn't seem like something anyone from SCEA would let out.

Still, the publicity stunt worked. Even if the attention was all just people yelling and screaming, it's still attention. It got people in an uproar about yet another silly internet thingamabobber. As Gene Simmons of KISS says, "there's no such thing as bad publicity."


Yeah...if it negatively affects sales, there is such a thing as bad publicity.

And PSP phails. ^^

I live in NC. That's F*cked up.

I'm excited about the announcement of FFT A2. we'll see what that's released on then...

2589  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Disgaea restocked! on: December 11, 2006, 06:59:28 PM
Disgaea became one of those "super-rare-pay-lots-of-money" kinds of games after it went sorely out of print.

Until now, since NIS America has restocked it for only $30.

Buy it before it becomes rare...again.

(it says Oct 27 2006 up top but this was announced Dec. 1).

That's so depressing. Even if the student grabbed some places (even intentionally, such as the breasts) ... he's FOUR! His first memories of boobs are probably involving food, not sex.

So ridiculous.
2591  The Rest / General Discussions / IGN: The Top 25 Videogame Franchises on: December 09, 2006, 10:51:19 PM
oh. holy crap. Looks like they showed me up.

I had no idea about those other Satellaview releases, NOR did I know about that promotional 16 minute OAV.

Looks like the music game is refering to the "music library"...

I also find it funny that they don't mention a third game, "Radical Dreamers." Fools don't know their stuff.

Despite having only two RPG games released (along with racing and music spin-offs), this franchise still has the power to lure in gamers everywhere.


wtf are they talking about, racing and music spin-offs?

Ramza

EDIT -- and again, this is clearly "Top 25: for Americans," considering Dragon Quest *doesn't exist* on the list. I don't know any US laws demanding that a particular franchise can only release its next game on a Saturday...
2594  The Rest / General Discussions / SpikeTV award winners announced. on: December 09, 2006, 10:37:51 PM

Hell. yes.
2595  The Rest / General Discussions / SpikeTV award winners announced. on: December 09, 2006, 10:04:58 PM
LO effing L.

Best Soundtrack:
(a bunch of licensed crap)

Best Original Score:
(a bunch of American stuff...and Oblivion's soundtrack wasn't THAT great...)

Best RPG:
(Oblivion vs. S-E's 3 biggest games, and the American company wins. Big f*cking surprise).

Is it just me, or the industry completely unaware of itself? The press revolving around the videogame industry is at least five times worse than the press revolving around Hollywood.

Hopefully we're a small part of the remedy...
