What is sad is that accurately sums up the mentality of the average PS4/XONE user.

They analog sticks on the gamepad and pro controller are both meh compared to the DS4 and bone sticks. That and the nonsensical switch away from the triggers that they had on previous controllers is stupid. Why are they outright saying "No" to the way controller's are going when they're the ones that started the trend? They're like a bunch of hipsters or something.

To be fair the general button layout is the same as other consoles, however I agree 100% in regards to the triggers.

@Loom:  Even at launch Wii U is profitable to Nintendo after just one purchase, couple this with the fact that most of the people who currently own a Wii U are likely dedicated fans and that manufacturing costs will only go down; and you can see how Nintendo will still make a profit in the long run.
Nintendo is at heart, a toy company; they do not need to dominate the market like Microsoft or Sony to turn a profit.

In regards to the gamepad; I do not think that the concept is not flawed, but rather I think its execution is.  

Ok, I see.

And yes, the execution is flawed.

The sad thing is that people think like this.


I wish Nintendo made better triggers as well. I hate the triggers they have on the gamepad and pro controller.

They are not even triggers, they are buttons. A trigger allows for different inputs based on how far it is pressed, but a button only has one kind of input.

I cannot fathom why Nintendo got rid of the triggers.

oh, I'm not talking the layout. The sticks in general are lacking, the DS4 and bone sticks feel much better.

Nintend's D-pad is still the king of the bunch though.

Let me ask.

Did they actually LOSE Millions of dollars or did they just not make as much profit as they did last year?

That's the question. Did they actually drop into the red or are they still in the black but just not making as big as profit as they once were?

Nintendo is making another console but for Chinese markets. I am guessing it will be something very bare-bones maybe like a Ouya.

Instead, this new console and game library Nintendo has in development will act as cheaper alternative for those within the lower/middle income bracket. Not to mention Nintendo feels more comfortable making something new for a market that hasn't had much experience with games.
"It would be difficult to enter those markets if we didn't create something new... For the mass market you need to provide something that most of the middle class can afford."

Considering the high cost that comes with owning a current-gen console (Xbox One especially), putting out a much cheaper alternative for those who aren't fortunate enough to afford such a luxury item is a good idea on Nintendo's part

@Mazer
Ya, they were hinting at this earlier in the year. I wonder what exactly they'll put out.

From the sounds of it, they may be making a new console entirely. But Nintendo would have to go with a fully digital console because piracy in China is horrible.

I wonder if they'll just make a Wii U with no disc drive and a bigger hard drive.

that is cool that Nintendo is making a cheaper console, but then again compared to sony and microsoft, they always have cheaper systems to begin with. I wish they would make another console that was like the n64, that was such a great system. personally I really don't want to see another wii u

As someone on GT said, the subtitle sounds far more like the title of a Kirby game more than anything.

I hope that rumor is not true because if it it is true, this E3 is going to be underwhelming in general. There was barely any surprises from each company and it didn't sound too exciting.

Also it's totally fake because like Legend said, the subtitle is horrid and second, Nintendo would never use the name Xenogears because that isn't their IP.

The video game division lost a total $78 million over the course of the fiscal year. This is due somewhat in part to the costs of promoting the PS4 and getting the system ready for primetime but the majority of the loss comes from a $60 million write-off on PC games sold by Sony Computer Entertainment.

On a related note, Sony CEO Kaz Hirai provided investors with an early forecast for the new fiscal year, which ends on March 31, 2015. According to these estimates, this fiscal year will be an upward swing for the company compared to the last one, but it's still a mix of good and bad.

While overall sales of PlayStation hardware and games are expected to continue to rise over the next year (even with handheld sales expected to fall to 3.5 million), the game division's total revenue for this new year is predicted to be on par with the 2014 number. This is due to the offset of sales on the PC front.

Sadly, Sony as a whole will continue to lose money this year, but thanks to its plans to scrap its failing laptop business and to cut back on the printing of physical media, this loss will be significantly less than the previous one. Hirai is expecting a net loss of $490 million. He also noted that due to this loss, executives will not be accepting their yearly bonuses.
