Looks like the popularity of the Wii might not be beneficial to just Nintendo, as industry insiders are beginning to think that it would be the one to pave the way for console manufacturers to adopt a similar strategy in the future. With the big fancy features of the PS3 and 360, Sony and Microsoft have been losing out on dough from sales since day one. But, the same cannot be said for Nintendo. They've been making profit since they sold their first Wii.
And others may follow suit in the next generation of gaming. At least, analyst Billy Pidgeon with IDC thinks so, as he commented to Next-Gen that "the results of this cycle will have a strong influence on the next cycle, in that cheaper consoles will be expected." He goes on further to say "Microsoft and Sony will attain successful business on this generation, but catering to the early adopter hardcore gamers with a technology leader strategy will be difficult in 2011."
Any way you look at it, Nintendo proved playing is believing and showed that graphics aren't all there is to a successful game. No matter what we see come the next generation of gaming, we think Nintendo's success here, and now, is going to have a big impact on it.
This is what happens when you take the proportions of cartoon/Nintendo Mario's face and apply real-world characteristics to it. It was created using Photoshop and a bunch of features from a bunch of real faces.
Mην εισαι σιγουρος εδω ενας πρωην employ της Μicrosoft λεει οτι δεν θα υπαρχουν καν κονσολες.Wally είπε:Να εισαι σιγουρος οτι η επομενη γενια θα μας προσφερει sky-high επιδοσεις.Με Larabee και Cell2 θα μιλαμε για τουλαχιστον 5πλασια,οπως λενε, ισχυ.
Εχω παραθεσει μια τελευταια συνεντευξη του Carmack που μιλαει γι αυτο.
Αν η Nintendo συνεχισει το (επιτυχημενο για τωρα) βιολι της και στη αλλη γυρα θα πατωσει (IMHO^2).
Οσοι party-ακηδες το θελουν,το πηραν.Δεν χωραει αλλο "διασκεδαστηρι"
Στην επομενη γενια (IMHO^2) θα κερδισει αυτος που θα εχει καλυτερη αναλογια launch date και ισχυος + ποιοτητα online υλοποιησης.
Θα πεσουν κορμια στο 8ο Generation...
Will there be a PS4? An Xbox 720? A Nintendo Whatever?! Former Xbox Europe V.P. Sandy Duncan doesn't seem to think so. Duncan, who left Microsoft back in 2004 for personal reasons, says that in the next five or ten years, you won't have anything under your TV. Says Duncan:
There is a definite convergence of other devices, such as set top boxes. There's hardly any technology difference between some hard disc video recorders and an Xbox 360, for example... In fact in 5 to 10 years I don't think you'll have any box at all under your TV, most of this stuff will be virtualized as web services by your content provider.
Sony: Web sales will rule by 2018 [MCVUK]...ten years from now the ratio of games sales will have gone from 90 per cent in-store to 90 per cent online.
John Riccitiello has just come out of a meeting with film executives that has not gone according to the script.
"The buzz in Hollywood, which I heard from some Hollywood folks . . . is people are worried whether Iron Man the movie is going to get killed by Grand Theft Auto the game," says the chief executive of Electronic Arts, the world's biggest video game publisher.
I don't think I've ever heard of that before.

a former Midway employee has contacted us and said that he worked on the game, and that Mortal Kombat v DC features "no fatalities and little-to-no blood". In other words, "MK is dead". No blood, no fatalities...if this is true, why is this game called Mortal Kombat again?
I did see a demo of Tyris riding one particular beast that will deal some severe swipe damage with its claws. There are several types of beast mounts in the game, each with its own strengths and weaknesses, and my bet is that there will be points in the game where you have to ride a specific beast in order to accomplish certain goals — but that's just a hunch.
[Blizzard Store]Last week, Blizzard launched a spiffy new website. The improvements run a little deeper than just a cosmetic touch-up, however: they've for the first time begun offering digital downloads of their games from their own online store. Warcraft III ($20), Frozen Throne ($20) and the Starcraft Anthology ($15) are all available, with more (including Diablo) promised to appear later down the line.
