Nintendo New Device and 3 Games

Nintendo have announced that they plan to announce a new game product next year. The statement was made during a briefing on Nintendo's new business strategy. It seems that part of Nintendo's strategy is to blame Sony and their PSP announcement for their current woes. Although tight with the new products details, President Satoru Iwata told the news conference We are preparing a new product which will be surprising and unique...

Speculation on what exactly this new product may be ranges from the ridiculous to the borderline plausible. Recent rumours of a possible Spring 2005 release for the GameCube successor, codenamed N5, suggest that the new device may arrive faster than initially expected. It is another of Iwata's statements however, which points to something else. He said Basically Sony's multi-function handheld device will not have a big impact on our business, but we are, whether Sony releases a new product or not, preparing for our future...and we'll be able to tell you specifics next spring. This statement points to some GBA related device even though any guess as to its exact nature would be too risky at this time.

Iwata also announced a loyalty reward scheme, aimed to boost GameCube hardware and software sales. Club Nintendo will allow the byers of Nintendo software to accumulate points in a scheme similar to Air Miles.
We'll begin the new programme in Japan and the United States by the end of this year. We aim to have 300,000-500,000 users sign up for the programme in the first year claims Iwata.

Iwata also said Nintendo plan to boost software development by increasing collaborations with external software developers although, he denied any plans for further studio acquisitions.

In the fringes of that press conference Iwata also announced three new Nintendo titles which herals a return to the classic game recipe for the company. A GameCube version of the Wario Ware, Inc., a Donkey Kong game by Namco and a new Zelda adventure expected before Q4, 2004 make up the list.
With F-Zero GX, the classic arcade racer remake, about to go gold it is certainly turning out to be a busy time for Nintendo developers.

Nintendo New Device and 3 Games

If it's another hand held device just to rival with Sony's PSP, thats totally stupid. I mean, the GBA sp just came out earlier this year so wtf are they going to release another hand held next year?.I did get a GC this summer and I enjoy it but I currently own only 3 games which are Resident Evil Remake and Resident 0 and the other 1 I got was for free when you buy a GC so I got Zelda considering this game will last me the longest out of the free games you get to choose.Heck, when I first got my PS2 last year, I had about 8 great games for it in about a month to whereas I have only 3 games for more then a month for my GC.When I go to the store, you can easliy say that the GC is lacking games. Heck, I even see more Xbox games then GC games now.But after checking the previews for GC games, theres going to be alot of nice games for it that coming at then end of this year.

i used to support nintendo until the cube came out. most of the games are really kiddy games except for RE and stuff. the rouge squadron games r good too. but please, not another handheld, and not another concole for at least a few years. admitadly, my pc specs are better than my xbox, but graphics and general gameply is so much better on the xbox and will b for a while. please hold off for a while now. its been what, 2 years since they came out? and they want to realse another in 2 more years. wait till 06 or 07 at least. unless its backwards compatible, then i would buy xbox 2 or whatever.oh, and nintendo, PLEASE make some more hardcore games. a shooter would b nice.

Nintendo is dying because X-Box and Sony are totally kicking Nintendo's butt. They claim to have something better but i'm sure thats bullcrap. Nintendo is Done ! GAME OVER !long life for X-Box and Sony, the two leaders in the gaming console world !

Nintendo New Device and 3 Games

NINTENDO ISN'T DONE YET DUDE.GBA AND GBA SP STRONG SALES MAKE UP FOR THE CUBE.NINTENDO WOULD BE MAKING TWICE AS MUCH AS SONY IN THE VIDEO GAME INDUSTRY WHY: GAMECUBE, GBA, GBA SP, GB COLOR.SONY ONLY HAS PS.NINTENDO ARN'T DONE YET AND I THINK THEY WILL FIGHT FOR A CHANGE FINALLY.XBOX HAS WEAKER SALES THAN CUBE GENERALLY. LETS NOT FORGET XBOX IS MICROSOFT....MICROSOFT IS SNEAKY....THEY MAY BE SPYING....XBOX LIVE....THERE WILL BE TWO NEW CONSOLES BEFORE 2006 FROM NINTENDO.6 BILLION DOLLARS HAS BEEN SPENT.YOU CAN'T CLASS GBA SP AS A NEW CONSOLE BECAUSE ITS SORT OF A ADD ON TO GBA NOT A NEW CPU AND SPECS.

Lone Wolf how old are you honestly???? Kiddy...ya rite Eternal darkness was kiddy... LOL ya ya and so was Metriod Prime Oh Oh and dont even get me started on the whole Resident evil kiddyness omg.

Now heres another question you porbably think Zelda is Kiddy Right? but remeber the realistic Graphics was that kiddy? no! now you look at Xll the cellshaded shooter ofcourse thats not kiddy because it involves killing and blood and guts! This game Generation is Seroulsy f**kED UP! I remeber when it was about who put out the quality games not the Cheap DVD players and the fancy lies to bad i guess the gaming world would be much better without sony and Microsoft they turned this gaming industry into Money Not quality.

Hey Muty whats your IQ? dosent matter you are just plain out a f**king retarded jackass FYI PS2 is in first place GAMECUBE is in Second and XBOX is in Last So if any console is gonna go its gonna be XBOX! Seriously why do you people even post when you have no knowledge on Consoles? you just make your selves look like retards.

Nintendo New Device and 3 Games

i Like Gamecube, and the new thing could be interesting. gamecube doesnt have all adult games.=violent games, and the graphics isn´t so important. do i see a game with great graphics i think wow! for about ten seconds. would be more funny with different graphics, Like Zelda WW. or an innovative game.

Nintendo New Device and 3 Games

Ok mario your wrong, XBox has waayy stronger sales than the shitty cube, the cube is losing, and nintendo has to keep lowering the price and adding free games with it to get ppl to buy it, they are heading for the bottom and XBox is heading for the top while ps2 is staying where it is till XBox kicks its ass with its upcoming titles....Nintendo sucks ass my friends and theres nothing they or your can do or say about it...RIP Nintendo

Nintendo New Device and 3 Games

nintendo is a classic, the nintendo got on wrong track's when it produced nintendo 64, they should have produced a much better console with cd games instead of video game cassets.....if they had made another better console instead of n64...phoff they would be number one today...but shit has gone wrong and they suck today...i will never forget my first console =) the nes it rocked

Nintendo New Device and 3 Games

Xbox is gonna do good MOSTLY cause bill gates can just poor in the money and not care :P. But gameCube is doing fine they say thier gonna woop next year and bye the Info i have i bet they are. PS2 is ok but there going down, they where top when the Grand theft auto came out but THey cant hold it forever. Ive heard storys and story about HALO and how i rocks but HALO2 is gonna keep Xbox alive...

Nintendo New Device and 3 Games

Ok, all of you need to get you heads out of your asses and realizethat:1)Hardcore games aren't always the best games. Adult themes are greatbut aren't necessary. Hey I'm 15 and I must say that The Legend ofZelda, The Wind Waker is more innovative, and has more quality gameplaythan 10 of microsoft's ports, and more fun than Resident Evil even ifResident Evil has real blood. The Wind waker is rated 'E'. 'E' does notstand for kids only, it stands for Everyone.2)Graphics aren't nearly as important as awesome gameplay. I found theWind waker's style refreshing. All the other games just look the sameblah quasi realistic fluff.3) Console shooters SUCK ASS because it is impossible to aim with ajoystick. So if you want to shoot em up get a PC and quit your bellyaching. Half-Life 2 is coming out on PC (first) because PC's havebetter graphics potential and MICE!I'm sorry if Gamecube doesn't have twice as many titles as it'scompetitors. Nintendo strives for quality not quantity. We all knowthat when you play crap games you feel like you are wasting your lifeaway. It doesn't matter how many titles you have if the majority ofthem are $50 pieces of crap. Nintendo's titles open your mind, makeyou think, and never cease to impress.I'll settle this: If you still don't like Nintendo's gold. Get a PC.

Nitendo games you pay 50$ and you feall like you got your moneys worth and with X-box And ps2 you pay 5)$ and you feall like your playing a bargin binn 2$ special

Nintendo New Device and 3 Games

Ok a few small points I'd like to make:1. GC fans just quit it with the "GC is 2nd" crap. First of all sales mean shit all after they have reached critical mass. Nintendo have sold enough GC's to not pull the plug on it. Secondly sales mean shit all when it comes to console quality. You can't rate the consoles based on sales. Thirdly the facts show that MS is making more money. Their sales are slightly higher than GC's and growing, they have more sales in every part of the world except Japan and they have a game attach rate per console about 3 times higher than GC's. Granted they are losing more per console but game sales more than make up for it.2. This is for everyone. If you like a console why must that mean every other console is crap? Why can't everyone just realize that all the current consoles are good, they just happen to like one of them the most? The fact is that you've never seen a "crap" console because one has never made it to the mass marketplace; the really bad ones get thrown down the poo-shoot way before they get to us.3. L337 Cr3W.a) No wonder you think that Zelda is so great if you have only ever played "microsoft's ports". The best games on Xbox, as on any console, are the exclusives. Or was that supposed to be a retarded stab at a console that you obviously don't own and have probably never played considering your inept attempt of an attack using a generalized fallacy that you most definitely learned from the comments at the Nintendo fan-site that you generally frequent?b) True... for a PC gamer. People who learned to play FPS on a console probably find the mouse/keyboard combo cumbersome and uninvolving. It just depends on what you are used to.c) Brainless generalization again. You obviously have no idea of the Xbox game lineup and are just posting the same crap as every other GC fanboy. Next time why don't you make a change and post the condition of your colon since you must have your head planted firmly up there.

ok well back with the N64 i hated the PS just cause yeah it looked crap compaired to the N64, i own a shit load of games for the N64. Now i'm wanting to buy a new console but i'm not sure wich one i'm wanting to get and yeah the reason for it is there are games on each console i want to play. I used to be so wraped up in Nintendo. I'd be one of the ones stateing why the nintendo console was so good and the other consoles so crap but at the end of the day, the consoles are the same, yeah there graphics levels may vary between them but so what! i've got a SNES emulator and a GBA emulator on my PC and i play both. Not for graphics but for game play and thats the only thing that counts when it comes to games is game play. Nice flashy graphics are nice but not if the game play is shit. And every one who bitches about a new console comming out soon just shut up ok, so what if a new console is comming out soon or later or when ever. All it means is new games and maybe even new styles of game play. with graphics cards yeah there getting updated realy fast but i havn't updated my machine in 2 years and it still runs stuff fine, but as i said earlya a game has nothing to do with graphics (unless your a lil kiddie who likes nice looking stuff) it has everything to do with game play and how much fun you have playing the game.

Ok, Here it goes. What the f**k are all of you people talking about? Most of us are civilized people, why do we also have these huge flaming wars? All they do is get people mad, then they flame more and more. 90 percent of you people don't know what your talkng about, 90 percent of you just say 'GC sucks, you suck' with no facts, 90 percent of you just make up facts to support your OPINION. Its people like you, who are always out to get a fight, input your lame, biased opinions and flame that are making the world a worse place. Why can't you people be more agreeable, instead of argueing about everything. Your ruining the online community, doesn't matter if your 15 (like me) or 60, everyones opinion matters, but nobody listens when you have no facts, make up facts, or just FLAME. So don't... your just ruining it for everybody

Classic Example.Years ago, before most of you were even alive, there was a Video player called Beta. Beta was an AMAZING piece of technology. But then there was the VHS equivilant. Unfortuneat the VHS system won. Why? PORN. they put porn on the VHS, whereas Beta did not. Thus the Better technology was forced out of the mainstream. Beta is still arround, used mostly in studios, it fill's a niche.the same can be said about the concoles. The Gamecube and Dreamcast(now defunct) are far better machines, and better gameplay quality games than the PS2 or X-box (putting adult oritented games, that have nice graphics but crappy gameplay), altho the GC survives it cant do much. Much thanks to the ignorant masses, you've made gaming suck.Note: I cant remember what the VHS was called, i was younger and didnt pay much attention at the time. i think it was UHS or UHF.

XBOX soockie my dookie. stronger but sorrier. not worth money. only for pc gamers who can't be me CS or SC...and Star Wars fagz who have no life. PS2 trash. DC didn't sell as much as Duke Nukem...graphics bad...controller horrible like XBOX. game quality equal those of jaguar. must kill off Star Wars...

Nintendo New Device and 3 Games

I do not care about consoles anymore. It is all the same. The companies have some stupid console war and they do not focus on their customers. All they want is money. Besides, PC games are cooler and you can do more things with them.
