In Topic: GameStop and Amazon: Wii U GameCube Adapter

Yesterday, 04:40 PM

Honestly, I think this is different from the amiibo situation (where they're probably intentionally having a low supply), I think Nintendo just didn't realize the demand for a gamecube adapter, which is really facepalm worthy.

 

but yea, no need to go bananas over the supply, there were third party ones. I actually got my first adapter from Nintendo by literally driving 45 min out but it also was launch night, I wanted to play that night immediately.

I want this...but it's expenisve as balls

 

http://www.modmic.com/

 

It's even attached to the 598's in the picture lol

that's actually what i do for my xb1 set up (modmic+hd598s) at  the moment along with using the astro mixamp (2011 version) to set everything up. It's a alot of wires (I know it'd bother some), but the mixamp doesn't have a lot of room to juggle the sound. I feel like it goes from moderately loud to really loud, but the modmic itself is pretty good. I'm glad I bought it, I'll probably use it for pc gaming whenever I feel like investing into a gaming pc.

 

and at the end of the day, the reason headphones plus a mic are better than headsets are that the companies manufacturing these headphones like audiotechnica and sennheiser have been in the audiophile realm for a long time now (heck the 650 was once the flagship of top tier 10-15  years ago).

 

If u were gonna get a headset, another poster linked to some audiotechinca headsets, and they're basically the ad700 in headset form which are really good. The modmic (for those reading this post and are unaware) turns the headphone into a headset and to me was one of the most brillaint things I'd ever read (i was into audio for a long time, but didn't care about gaming audio)

Remember last year how (for whatever reason) everyone seemed to want a PS4 Camera and everywhere was sold out. Remember how Sony thought, "People seem to want these and we want their money for them" and the bumped up production to meet demand? Now you see how Nintendo thinks, "People seem to want these but Fuck THEM. We have enough money"? I really don't think that's the business mentality to take when you're in dead last place in the race. Lol Nintendo. Sony and Microsoft are kicking in your teeth in terms of sales and you're taking the 'We'd rather everything be a pain and super hard to buy from us' mentality. You better change your business model with literally everything you're doing or you're gonna be completely out of the race long before you know it.

Haven't looked at any recent balance sheets, but Nintendo is sitting on (from what I remember) tons of Cash in their financial statements and current assets are 1 trillion yen which is $8B USD. The gross profits from the Wii will sustain them for a long time along with the little debt they have in their debt-asset ratio.

 

So out for good? probably not. I agree tho production needs to increase.

is it obvious when you have a comparison screen? but if you don't and only have one?
