NINTENDO ARE STILL IN THE CONSOLE GAME.FACT

At a recent conference in New York,Nintendo announced that it is currently developing the succesors to gamecube and GBA.This awesome news crushes the strong rumour that Nintendo was to do a Sega and cease developing consoles,focusing solely on creating games.
Now how much this may heart me to hear i cant do anything about it mind what ive seen it looks good(yes you heard it i said nintendo sound good).

No details have been released regarding the technolodgy in development for either of the new consoles.But if previous trends are anything to go by,i expect GameCube's successor will be no less than a whopping 256-bit machine,and no doubt wireless controllers will come as standard.As for Game Boy advane,s futere replacement,how does a backlift handheld as powerfull as an N64 sound? The leap from GBC to GBA was almost as dramatic.Please let it be so!

2005 is the date sony has set for the launch of PS3,and microsoft big cheese Ed Fries has just announced that the follow-up to Xbox is scheduled for release before PS3.Yeah. So although Nintendo hasn't yet given a preliminary release date for its new consoles,2005 is looking likely.You don't want to wish time away for it or do you.

Any way i posted this for people who dont know so please dont start.

Oh. my. god.

Pulled the wool over the eyes. I won't go into the whole Microsoft monopoly and the fact GC games are cheaper than PS2/XBox ones, and the fact that all capitalist corporations do that.

Cashflow problem? You are a one-track idiot. XBox is losing Microsoft way more money than the GC is to Nintendo. I doubt, with large sales of software, Nintendo are makig much loss, if any. Plus the GBA is the most successful console in Japan, and huge in the USA and Europe. Plus Pokemon still rakes it in.

Fine was planned for. Rare got Nintendo millions, for new games, from other top developers like Retro. Not enough money to spend on R&D? Fool. 15 years of growth, with the NES, SNES, N64, GB/GBC/GBA, and GC all making significant profits for Nintndo, and no loss recently, despite the fine, and competition. So, I think Nintendo just might have enough. Just.

Once again Top Score displays an utter lack of understanding of how the games industry works and how much money Nintendo have made on the GB/GBA. You stick to 'loving' you PS2 and you'll be fine. One day you may even hit puberty.

But only in Europe, I'm sure they like their Japanese and US customers, plus, it wasn't in the UK

Not that much lost, they make it up with Softwaqre and they lose less than Sony AND Microsoft with each console sold.

Which it is, with some some top developers under their wing and the fact that they ARE the best games designers in the world.....
