"Ultimately," Wilson admits, "it was just going to be a bad game."

Wilson told me, "We're proud that we made the choice to not just put something out there that wasn't good." [/p]

Glad to see companies realizing a game's not going to be any good and deciding to not push it out regardless.

**further stares at nintendo's large list of terrible games**

How often does Nintendo release a horrible game?
Never, or at least pretty much never.
We all know it was a sarcastic comment...
IF it isn't I think he should mention the alluded games.

I guess overlord00 thinks that every game on Wii/DS is by Nintendo, because it's their hand-held...

wow, you know me.... :rollseyes:

was saying that nintendo are letting others fill their catalouges with crap and they do nothing but sit back and let the money flow in.
its really stupid to think that all games that come out on any console are made by the same distributor. i understand that ubisoft indeed release games on every platform (including the nintendos consoles), but am saying that they (nintendo) overall have the worst run when it comes to ALLOWING crap-ware...

If you read up on 3DS news, Nintendo is actually going to be doing something about that.

I would provide a source but I'm in class.

The difference is that Nintendo will allow crap-ware because it's going to sell regardless of whether it's decent or not. Given that Elite was supposed to essentially be a reboot of the Live series with a new face and that it had to compete with the beast that is 2K11, it wouldn't be a smart move to release it now. Basically, Nintendo doesn't have much to lose when releasing crap-ware whereas EA had PLENTY to lose by releasing Elite.

PSX had more shit games than anything.

Its a free market, companies need the licence cash to make the games people wont buy and its not like anyone is being forced to buy shit.

Wait... what? Is that an admittance from EA that they made a bad game and cancelled it because of it?
