I still have my NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube w/ Gameboy Player, Backward Compatible Wii and my Wii U.  Want me to go into the handhelds?

Ok, fine. I still have it hooked up in the livingroom.

 

I still have several NES/SNES/N64/Gamecubes.

Free PSN crap this week. Pretty much one thing. I suppose this means that Neptunia VII is likely finally done with their weekly DLC.

Nintendo to End Production of Wii U this Year, Nikkei Reports

 

This doesn't surprise me. Bought a WiiU near launch and sold it less than a year later. So disappointing. The last Nintendo product I was genuinely happy purchasing was a Panasonic Q Gamecube.

Panasonic Q for me! No gameboy player for it though. It uses a special one and they're kinda pricey.

I guess I'll just sit my WiiU next to my Gamecube and try to figure out where everything went wrong.

The scary part is they're going to continue to look towards the Wii gimmicks and its casual nature in order to try to replicate that success going forward.

Unless you have some insider knowledge of the NX you can't really make that claim.

Nintendo doesn't treat their customers like adults, so I choose to not treat them like a console maker.

the latest rumor i saw/heard,  was it was going be a phone like console that has a hmdi connector that can use any screen as a display. the second part of that rumor, was that their be a add on too make it better ( not sure how )  an that is their console/handheld hybrid they were pushing for to enter part of the phone market.

 

 

 

but like all things in till we see it, it's just talk but i have very little faith in the big N atm. so their idea of leaping technologically  forward could just be a simple gimmick that will be copied an made better by others.

I like the comparison of Nintendo consoles to MS operating systems:

 

Wii = Windows XP

Wii U = Windows Vista

NX = Windows 7?

I think the NX will be a return to their cartridge gaming roots.  Here's a look at the prototype version of the first game for the system;

Super Mario NeXt.

If you chose the cheapest option, itll take 1-2 weeks to get to you, unless USPS decides to fk you over and lose it on Delivery Day

well i got mine yesterday but i didnt order from playasia, was hoping for a better preorder theme though

Thanks for the responses, funny enough mine came in the mail today. I should know by now that complaining about something on the internet magically fixes it. :-P

 

For anyone planning on buying from Play-Asia soon, I got a $5 off $60 code that I won't use because I order there infrequently. There's a short code and a long code, I'm not sure which actually applies the discount, but here are both:

Short code: !Y-QX@-WNV

Long code: P!#18742097

(! = first letter of the alphabet, @ = second letter of the alphabet, # = third letter of the alphabet)

It looks like an Xbox 360 controller it trying to swallow a SNES controller.

Hope it means the NX will be backwards compatible.

 

Edit: I want to play Bayonetta 2, but I haven't bought a Wii U. It's too crappy for me to pay the $300 price. I regret a little bit about not picking up one for myself when TRU had it for $200, but eh. But every time I played it at Comic Con, even before it's release, I couldn't figure out why I needed two screens. I'm not paying $100 so I can see my inventory without pressing a button...

I bout My Wii U for $100. Totally worth it for Tokyo Mirage, Xenoblade and Fatal Frame

They probably have a bunch of unsold Wii U's sitting around the office anyway.

Lucky. USPS totally lost my previous order and it took 2+ months to get a replacement.

Thanks, I used the short code to get Bloodborne The Old Hunters Edition and Deemo the Last Recital.

(not sure about the long code)

Has anyone gotten their copy of IA/VT The Best from Play-Asia yet? My order's tracking number has been stuck on "Import (Item arrived at country of destination)" since 3/16.

What site do you use to track shipping? This is the first time I purchased from Play-Asia and my copy of DOAX3 shipped today.

I think it's supposed to ship on the 24th. You go with the PS4 or Vita version?
