well done bobbybangin.
I've never understood the nintendo hate. only the most ignorant gamers succumb to it.
It all stems to silly mistakes made with the N64. Gamers wanted FMV and cd soundtracks. Texture limitations didn't do any favours either sadly. But the N64 was the birthing ground of the best platformers that ever were and ever will have been.
The gamecube was outcooled by the PS2... which again... had a launch ahead of the gamecube.
Silly mistakes can ruin a company. but the fact is this. Nintendo have a console that will appeal to all with the wii-u. And neither sony or microsoft are in a position to rush a console to launch. Sony are financially crippled, and Microsoft have the RROD debacle.
Sony at least still provides some interesting gaming proposals. Shame this years involved a brazen, uninteresting clone of smash bros. (hell. i'd rather play that cartoon network copy. it has captain planet.)
I'd love to see microsoft fall, if only just because of the decent companies they've ruined in their ambitions. They're brazen thieves. Their only innovation ever was xbox live. and they stole and broke rareware from us all.
