To clarify… The no. 1 seller isn’t the only success in the console wars. For instance, the DS and PSP were both successful, viable, profitable systems even if the DS won out for total sales (when I last saw…) However, making the big assumption that all these new Android consoles actually draw enough of the market to them, there’s a theoretical point where instead of a million consoles sold by each company (just a sample, not total sales lol), there’s 100k here, 100k there, maybe 50k for some others, and maybe one or two are actually profitable, but most of them lose too many sales to all the others to be worthwhile.

After all, there’s a reason we no longer see game consoles by Magnavox, Mattel, Atari, Sega, etc. There’s only so many dollars out there for the lot of them.

  • NVIDIA Unveils Project Shield Handheld:
    Do you hear that? It’s the echo of the market crash that almost killed gaming back when everyone and their dog was making shitty Atari games and they buried tens of thousands of copies of ET in mass graves. Somehow I don’t think what this generation needs is 10 consoles to choose from. [conspiracy theory]Maybe it’s a false flag operation from PC giants like Valve and nVidia to devalue the console market, crash it, and pull people back into PC gaming so instead of needing a new GPU every 8-12 …

  • Ghost in the Shell Movie Behind-the-Scenes Emerge:
    I feel the same way about the first – haven’t seen the second. Oshii did the same thing to GITS that he did to Urusei Yatsura and Patlabor – he sucked the depth out of it and made it bitter and humorless, robbing the characters of their humanity. The original manga was dense as hell, sure, but the movie was such a small sliver of the story when it came down to it. Most of the supporting cast become props, assuming they even make the cut to the movie. For this reason I think I’m pretty receptive …

    Daicon IV!

  • Brave Girl Ravens Take Flight on Nutaku:
    Looks like Girls x Battle and all the other games by that company on smartphones – with added H of course. And a bit of reskin, which they don’t always do when they change the name of the game.

  • Clinton Crony: “Keijo = Child Porn!”:
    Right… so since someone who once proposed an ad for Clinton said something dumb, Clinton is the antichrist here to take our anime away. Vote instead for the most dangerous sociopath to have entered American politics. This site works a lot better without American politics TBH, especially when the level of facepalm induction is that high. This fool speaks for Clinton’s policy points in the same way the most backward Narutard speaks for all of us.

  • Nintendo Retires Splatfests “It’s Been Fun!”:
    I loved all the Mario Bros games, before they were even “super”, but 64 killed it for me. It was insufferable. 3D platformers are an awful idea. That’s one reason there’s such a return to 2D platformers now. I’ve tried some later Marios like Galaxy too, but… it’s just a chore.
