Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

The Sega Dreamcast would have outsold the Wii U if Sega didn't drop Western support so soon, five years of support is generous. :wink: Well Nintendo releasing 45 retail first party titles for Wii U over 5 years is pitiful in comparison to Sega releasing more than that in the 2 years it published to...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

True, personally the Bomberman one looks the best, this and SF swayed me!

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Switch will support up to 2TB Memory Cards. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2017/01/nintendo_switch_memory_can_be_expanded_up_to_2tb Good at least they're future proofing the storage at least, even though I'm not sure if 2TB SD Cards exist yet. Guess its up to the 3rd parties not having giant inst...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

I think it would have come in under 250 if the Pound hadn't had 20% of its value wiped off since June. Reportedly all consumer electronics are going to have a price hike over the next year, some have already started. This is what you voted for, folks... Yawn, stop blaming everything on brexit peopl...

I was just thinking the same thing, mostly reboots and upgraded titles so far, I'm sure that will change in 11 days but until then nothing fresh about the games.

C&C translated well to joypad, i don't foresee a problem esp with analogue sticks nowadays.

Re: 2017: What games are you looking forward to?

Shenmue III - Bought a PS4 Pro a year in advance to play it, though more than likely will hit in early 2018, but you never know! Sonic Mania - "2D Sonic games are the best (forget the naff ios and android ones) this looks to be a return to form! Sudden Strike 4 PS4 - havent played any of the series,...

Price rumored to be £199.99, £250 for more storage and a game.

That would be pretty decent if it is true.
The price I expected for the tech you are getting.

Re: How big are you expecting the PS4 VR to be?

It is strange how you seem to be getting genuine enjoyment out of someone selling their headset though... . How on earth did you jump to that conclusion?! I was agreeing with what he said, it's no business of mine if he sold it or not, I was hardly laughing at him for getting a migraine, I don't un...

Re: How big are you expecting the PS4 VR to be?

Well I've sold mine now :oops: for a £100 profit at least. VR is far and away one of the most incredible entertainment experiences I've had in years. You literally cannot describe the experience with words, you have to see it for yourself. For film, media & fun it may be the future...for gaming? I'...

Re: Nintendo NX Reveal Coming Tomorrow!

Why do you think costs won't be high? Do you even know what the unit costs of the Tegra X1 are, let alone a custom version? Why you seem to think just because its custom it will cost more than the original?! The X2 was designed for self driving cars with all the 'bells and whistles' from what I've ...

Re: Nintendo NX Reveal Coming Tomorrow!

For the last time, it's not using the X1 or even the X2. Nvidia have confirmed that it's a new custom chip. And when the first Shield tablet launched it was at a 50% higher price than the current model, which benefits from re-engineering and cost reduction of components. As such, even assuming gene...

Re: Nintendo NX Reveal Coming Tomorrow!

The X1 chip in the shield tv will be two years old, chips progress the costs will be the same if not lower than what the X1 two years ago, esp in the numbers of millions Nintendo will be selling them in, if nvidia can sell a X1 nvidia shield TV for £169 including a £49 wifi controller in the tens o...
