Will Nintendo go the way of Sega? I mean the dreamcast had good games but Sega eventually bit the dust when it came to making consoles, because of sonys PS1 and Nintendo's N64? I cant remember, but it was a popular console i still play on with my mates, moreso than the PS1. The fact that the console will be ultra easy to develop for compared to the PS3 and Xbox 360 might not save Nintendo if big developers (EA) like working people to death for whatever console they want. They say it has "strong 3rd party support", so are we gonna see smaller companies producing "revolution only" games? Are small software companies a thing of the past since the introduction of "all bells all whistles" approach of bigger companies that get all the advertising and global releases? Nintendo will always have a market for Mario, Zelda the odd FF game and resident evil (WOO!) etc but will it be enough to keep them in the running? Compared to the launches of the PS3 and Xbox 360 which are, lets face it, highly anticipated and covered there's so much less on the revolution and i dont think that's just because there's very little "facts" about it out there. Nintendo admit the Revolution will only be a couple of times more powerful than the GC, which wont be anywhere near the level of PS3/X360 levels of "a few terraflops of data and faster than 2 6800ultras in SLI" but will "concentrating on gameplay" alone work for them? Will joe public be bought by the "we concentrate on games and gameplay" by Nintendo or by "OMFG! LOOK AT THE UBER GFX AND PIXELS AND WIFI AND MULTIMEDIA AND AND AND!!!11oneon" approach by Sony/MS? Is it because Nintendo concentrates on Japan, then US close by, then EU somewhere down the line? I know i go on about this, but we do get the thick end of the stick when it comes to games and stuff. The Japs get all the best games and we get SFA. I mean, how hard is it to sub a Jap game?? There are some quality titles produced back since.. forever. I play a couple of DC/PS1 Jap games with friends and they are incredibley fun, moreso than some western games. But will downloadable content forgo this whole experience - so i can log onto an american or jap server and choose whatever game i want? Will the "month later release strategy" for the EU become a thing of the past? Will it make the consoles more desirable - seeing that Steam, despite it's problems is a general sucess for Valve could this become a standard for games consoles as well as PCs? I dont fancy downloading a blu-ray disk's worth of data, but a couple of gig isnt too much i spose these days.
