A couple of days ago, Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime made a statement, saying that the Wii U, which costs $299 and comes with two free games, is the best value in the homes console market at the moment and yes going by the price and and some of the kick ass games like Mario Kart 8, you can see where he is coming from, but that hasn’t stopped some of Sony’s top employee’s releasing somewhat butthurt rebuttal statements, are Sony butthurt at what Nintendo said and spouting complete nonsense ?, ill post all the statements and you decide for yourself.
We convince them with the games, Fils-Aime said when asked how to spur people to upgrade to the new console.
So as an example, you can only play Mario Kart 8–this fabulous game that has sold millions of copies across the world–only on the Wii U because of the enhanced capabilities, the HD graphics, the new elements that we bring to bear for that particular game.
The good news, for us, is that we’re presenting the best value right now in new home consoles,” he explained. “$299, includes two games; it’s a compelling proposition for consumers this holiday
For us the message is simple; you want to play these great games, you want to have these fantastic experiences, you have to upgrade to the Wii U
Now he didn’t say his console was the best, he didn’t say the Wii U was superior to any other console, he said that at this moment, the Wii U is the best value for money.
I believe that Vita is the best handheld gaming experience, full stop, period,” Layden said. “Nothing comes close to that. You can talk about your mobile, you can talk about your tablet, you can talk about, you know, Nintendo platforms or what have you in the handheld space. I think, pound-for-pound, buck-for-buck, Vita is the best gaming experience you can have.
Now Layden specifically targeted Nintendo and he deluded himself and tries to full the consumer into thinking the PS Vita is the best Handheld Gaming Experience, i would agree with him, if it wasn’t for the fact you have to hack the fucking thing and install eCFW before it comes close to the best handheld gaming experience, because quite simply, in my opinion a PS Vita not touched with homebrew, sucks major balls.
Yes i do think it is the most powerful handheld gaming device, but without great games, what’s the point, i can say every game i have bought for the 3DS i have enjoyed, i cannot say the same for the PS Vita, in fact the most fun i have had with my PS Vita, is when i played Tony Hawks 1, 2 and 3 on it, those games are PS1 games, not even on the PS Store, i had to install an eCFW in order for me to have that fun, because yes, Sony suck major ass at bringing these type of experiences to the PS Vita.
I’d like it to continue with the innovation stream I just talked about, but also what we want to see in the next year or two is a bigger mass market play, shall we say. So in order to broaden and perhaps fill the void that’s being left latent by, say, the Wii – which is a shadow of its former self. We need to have the kind of product that will engage that more casual consumer. I think that’s a big opportunity for us, and that’s not yet clear on the horizon, but something we should and I’m sure will be focused on as we look forward into year two, three and four.
Yet again, another direct hit out at Nintendo, this time having a go at the Wii, of course it is a former shadow of its self, it is older than the PS3 and has been replaced by a new fucking console, the Wii U, do you expect the Wii to remain popular forever ?
What is a shadow of its former self though, is Sony, they are not the same great company from the PS1 and PS2 era, they got cocky and reckless, they fucked up big time with the PS3, the price, the stupid lawsuit delaying the Dualshock 3, the removal of the Emotion Engine from the EU 60GB PS3‘s a mere four months before its release and its delayed release at that, then the removal of OtherOS, i could rant on about the fuckups and bore you with my rantings regarding the PS3, but i wont, because most of you on the forum already know them.
Then we come to the PS4, Sony’s redemption, but no, its been fuck up after fuck up after fuck up, it just keeps going on and on and on and on and on, PSN down, Game Servers down, games being delayed, games being released with major bugs, where the fuck does it stop and don’t get me fucking started about that pieces of bastardised PS Vita wannabe shit known as PlayStation TV, who ever conceived that idea was on the right path, but the dozy bastard who put everything together, needs a good kick in the balls, with spiked metal toe capped boots, half the fucking games don’t work, no Netflix or YouTube apps, Skype doesn’t even fucking work.
