Why is it so cheap? Sure, Switch is on the way soon, but this is literally half the price of a standard New 3DS XL and just a tad bit more than a 2DS. Even if it's just the one day for Black Friday, I don't see how Nintendo profits from this.
I was thinking the same thing. I'd imagine Nintendo got some sort of deal for a mass production,otherwise I can't see them making much off these.
You make money on game sales.
Nintendo is the only console company that never loses money on hardware sales, unlike Sony and MS. Thus they keep releasing hardware that's 1 gen older than the others and use "creative gimmicks" to fill the gap. $99 for a 3DS sounds low but the hardware is ancient by today's standards and it does not cost much to produce. The $199 XL is a ripoff by today's standards for the hardware that it has. Nintendo easily banks $99 of that $199.

yea, not really that either
The pc had plenty of unified networks that hosted multiple online games and large communities (if thats what your calling a unified network sans downloads/purchases). There was mplayer in '97 that had over 3mil people, gamespy, battle.net which started in 96 with diablo and then had starcraft which was played worldwide. Different services to be sure, but they all hosted multitudes of online games and communities in a single location, you just had many choices vs. xbox's one
Having a single place for downloads just had an obvious extension of also incorporating online play since those games were multiplayer to begin with so it just made sense. The only diff between the console and pc is that with pc there is always a choice, the console is a walled garden so in order to get that experience it has to be provided by the OEM. So for xbox it had to be one single unified network, there are no options, but the pc was already headed that direction anyway
The pc still barely gets any major japanese games, but I dont think most people really care when there is still 1000x more variety already available. The lack of japanese ports isnt really concerning, especially cause they usually do a shite job of them anyway
Thank you. The only sensible post that explains everything instead of attacking. Yes, I do remember Gamespy and that was before XBL.

Exclusives sell systems. And Xbox needs to sell systems.
I wish MS would wake up and look at why the 360 was successful globally, even in Asian countries other than Japan. It was all about exclusives, not just 1st party but 3rd party as well. Not just console exclusives but exclusives period. Basically, if you wanted to play these domestic and Japanese games, and there were a lot, you had to buy the 360. Unfortunately, MS has lost this concept and went cheap with marketing in Japan. Now they face the consequences with Xbox One on a global scale. Yet, Sony is doing exactly what MS was doing with the 360 on the PS4 and it's succeeding. Coincidence? I think not.

Reviews say it has an auto-aim feature which I'll certainly use given I generally dislike having to aim, and well, I'm not very good at video games :-Also, couldn't care more about the online multi-player. I'm a single-player, campaign guy, and I'm willing to try it out. Besides, this one being a very under-published game, and me not being a digital/DLC gamer (i.e. I want physical discs), I figured this was a good time to go in on one since we're at that point where Wii U games are slipping away.
Unlike consoles like PS2, 360, or the original Wii, I can see the Wii U sections in Gamestops and retail stores vanishing not long after the holiday season since even Nintendo is doing nothing to promote it.
Yes, the single player can enable auto aim and it helps vastly. Multiplayer doesn't have auto aim so you have to deal with the game's flawed aiming mechanics. When I played, I usually avoided long range weapons like sniper rifles and used close range weapons like autoshotgun + melee. It's far more entertaining and personal. But since you don't care about multiplayer, you'll be fine with auto aim on in single player.

Is that still the case though? Either way the port is fantastic and I'd recommend it to anyone that doesn't want to wait for the PS4 version/doesn't have a decent enough PC/has a x1.
Believe so. Only the PC version "fixed" it so the lag may have something to do with X1's hardware which cannot be fixed. Also the 360 is fully vsyn'ed where as the X1 version is tearing at the top 1/4 of the screen when the game engine is stressed.
I bought the 360 version at launch because I didn't have the X1 yet at the time (last Nov) and agree it's a crazy port. I didn't think the 360 would have come out alive but it did and with fairly stable frame rate to boot. Truly the last amazing port for the system. The only thing I miss from current gen/PC versions is the hair physics. I can live without the prettier graphics but the TressFX hair physics is truly amazing, like in the last Tomb Raider reboot game.

Ready for XB1.5!
No amount of hardware will sell it when the real problem with X1 is software. There's hardly anything special on it that's exclusive and the lack of Japanese support makes it a defunct console this gen worldwide, except maybe the US. The 360 hit all the cards right last gen thus it was successful worldwide, except maybe Japan. MS needs to reinvest in Japan like during the OG Xbox and 360 days in order for the X1.5 or any of its future consoles to success worldwide.

I wanted to pre-order at best buy and take advantage of GCU, but I'll probably just buy some live credit and sell off the pc code. If I want to play the pc version down the road I'll buy it when it's $5
With all the videos I've seen, it doesn't look all that great. You should just wait for $5 period on either platform because there's no online play so no rush to level up or anything. Besides, there are plenty of shooters to play. You know, 7 out of 10 games released these years are dudes running around in 1st/3rd person view with guns.

Waiting for "on the house" or Access version.
This franchise has done all it could already and reboot or not doesn't change anything. All releases from now on is only worth $10 since it's all more of the same. Same goes with all the annually released games.
