Heh, I can see why since Apple's popularity just keeps growing and growing
No wonder, DS is not a phone...
Nintendo should make a phone
They should try adding higher-tech stuff to their consoles now.
Just a thought.
Don't fuck with Nintendo, Apple.
Japanese based company > American based company
I wonder how many people still suspect that Apple and Nintendo are related.
Nintendo need to stop milking and make a damn handheld to blow sony and apple out of the water. I have a DS and ipod touch and I prefer ipod right now even though their games aren't fully blown RPGs they're arcadey time waster games. Nintendo, you sir are a smart idiot. Their bronze age tech sells like "hot cakes" (and yes I am thinking of getting a /3DS/). Commence flaming.
who did in the first place?
I doubt many did, if anyone at all, but there are just a few similarities between them.
Because there are more posers in the world today?
And didn't Nintendo still make like, $2.5 billion? That's not quite enough to cry over yet, IMO. However, I'm all for them going after Apple if it's what they want to do; I'm not a great fan of Jobs. The iPhone and touch may be allright for those arcade-style, 5-10 minute wasters, but IMO they can't compete in the area of more in-depth titles. People still prefer having a dedicated gaming device for that.
That said, I'm all for Nintendo loading down the 3DS with as much power as possible, to blow the POS iCrap out of the real gaming market.
Alright, nothing substantial. Just coincidences like the lowercase i, AAC playback on DSi and not MP3, and the fact that Apple sacrifices functionality for design. I'm just rambling, don't give it much concern.
ha ha steve jobs your next!
Well... EVEN though i love both Nintendo AND Apple.... i want Apple to win this. i have always been a nintendo faboy, but more of an apple one (as you guys mostly know). if i had to choose my iPod or my DS to take on a trip with me and i could only chose one. it would be my iPod touch, you can do way more on it, not just games.
but i think nintendo needs to show us them move is not better then our cuttent wiimote
Well.... that is my 2 cents
Wow, how can and iPhone be considered a gaming console? I have an iPod touch, (which uses iPhone Apps obviously) and out all the Apps I've downloaded, I keep maybe 30%, if that, of them on my iPod. Plus, all of them aren't games either. They're only a handful of good games on the iPhone and there's tons of good ones on the DS.
No offence here, but the is also a !@#$ load of shovel ware on the DS
The iPhone apps that are games. have it is like the old atrie. you can go in with 10$ and walk out with a bunch of great apps. rather then bringing like 30 - 40$ and getting one game that might not be good (this does not apply to me, since i use a flash card. but if i buy games i know what i want)
And that wasn't the case with the PSOne or PS2? Massively popular systems attract the most shovelware, due to the fact they're present in more households than competitors. The Wii and DS even moreso, probably because the devkits are also relatively inexpensive compared to the others. Ultimately, shovelware is only an indication of how popular a system really is. What Nintendo needs to do with the next handheld, though, is make sure there are a few more real quality titles to balance out the shovelware; and that they're released more frequently. There should always be an upcoming first-party title from Nintendo on the horizon, whether it's Zelda, Mario, Pokemon, Starfox, etc. And ideally upcoming 3rd party titles that people can actually get excited about, as well.
Apple might be able to compete in the market of tiny, addictive shallow titles. But there'll never be as many people wanting to play full-blown RPGs, etc. on Apple hardware. It's too expensive, for one thing. And they often cripple their hardware for the sake of aesthetics; which is stupid.
Shit just got REAL!
That's exactly what I meant, just 5661 explained with more detail.
Most 'good' apps are around $4-5
The only good app I've seen so far on the iPod is Chaos Rings even then, you wouldn't be sitting for hours on it like you would on a NDS game.
