    is the wii u really doing all that bad?

    The January numbers were awful

    None of the other consoles ever had such a weak month in their entire run

    Not even the PS3

    It won't be clear til the first party big hitters drop, but right now it is a massive underseller

    for fuck's sake can we go one press conference or game event without someone yelling how it's a waste of time? they're all fucking wastes of time by their very nature, why do you even still watch them

    people are mad about everything all the time.

    Personally, i'm excited. come, be excited with me.

    I'm kind of excited, a lot of it sounds neat! I mean, I don't like the dualshock, but whatever, I have a PS3 so it's not like I can't adjust

    I want to see Microsoft's stuff and I want to know more about the PS4 but I'm excited for new stuff

    ok so the real question of the day is: does the 3DS download while the lid is closed or what

    it says "close the system to resume download" but I've had it closed for like 4 hours and Fire Emblem hasn't budged from 9%

    it should

    the wireless is supposed to stay active while the system is closed and in sleep mode

    try restarting the download

    there it goes

    I guess I had to make sure the e-shop was closed and not just suspended

    Like I get loving Nintendo and they are a really great company who makes some of my favorite games, but there is a point where you're just ignoring facts.

    Why are they using gddr5 as their system memory? That makes a whole lot of no sense. Also all this 8 gig stuff is so dumb, what are they going to do, run 5 games at a time? I gotta believe that tech specs sheet is a load of shit.

    GDDR5 runs faster than DDR3.

    8 gb seems perfect to help future proof the machine
    Yes but gddr5 is memory used in graphics cards, hence the G. So it's puzzling to have them use it as system memory instead.

    And UV I'm not complaining I'm just questioning the necessity of 8 gigs of ram, for anything.

    They call it GDDR5 because it was designed for graphics cards, but it's not like it can only be used for them. It's just faster memory.

    And 8 gigs of memory is going to seem as outdated as 1 gb seems now at the end of the PS4 cycle.

    That is a bold statement.

    6 to 7 years from now? I absolutely think so.

    they changed the controller. longer grips, concave stricks, look pretty slick.

    but yeah, i'm really excited for microsoft's show. whenever that is.

    they're going to have to do one now right? are we going to get a sony lead year or is microsoft going to do like a huge info dump at e3 to "win" the show?

    Let's make no mistake though. It still isn't "doomed"

    Nintendo took the Apple route and kept most of its earnings from the Wii liquid. They can last a long time, even on the failure of the Wii U.

    the ps2 outsold the 360 for basically the first year the 360 was out, possibly longer.

    The economic landscape is p. different than back then.

    I don't really find the wii u's slow sales and the 360's stable ones surprising.

    'cause I hate everything he's ever actually produced

  • ScudoScudo Registered User regular
    fwiw, I seem to remember having 2GB in my PC when the 360 launched and doubting its paltry 512MB

    the PS4 has as much RAM as my decently specced
    PC does right now and it's faster gddr5 to boot, not to mention it's OS probably has a smaller memory footprint than Windows

    I think 8GB will serve these consoles well

    Of course, I'm sure they will continue to make good games for a good while, but I have trouble believing it will be the most popular console of this generation.

    Oh yeah, no question

    only crazy people thought it would be

    the only possibility of that is if high development costs implode the game development market and we only see indie titles for a long time

    even then the Wii U has a shitty network infrastructure to support such an environment, so everything would just migrate to Steam instead.

    this fall seems like a great time to get a wiiu, honestly

    because I don't think I want to fight people for a ps4 or new xbox, and I'm wondering if the wiiu will take a price cut the way the 3DS did

    also the 3DS turned out to be a pretty great purchase, btw

    'cause I hate everything he's ever actually produced

    he's a guy who made a lot of really fucked up shit as a way to deal with Issues and who hates the fans who obsess over him while totally missing the point

    namely zim fans

    i love him

    I'll worry about the PS4 holiday 2014, if I haven't just upgraded my PC's video card and called it a day by then. It's going to take at least a year for the big games to hit anyway.
