Sony announced its Playstation Classic today and somewhat surprisingly I have been reading some threads of people who are not at all excited by this. Now, I am a Playstation man, through and through, so my opinion may be somewhat biased, but overall I really like the idea of the retro mini console and having it stocked with games. Older consoles, controllers, and especially game carts and discs become worn and useless as time goes on. Experiencing older games on a crisp new screen with responsive brand new controllers sounds great to most of us, but to many it will never live up to the original experience of untangling the controller cords, blowing the dust from your cartridge and switching the TV input over to RGB. I totally see both sides of the argument and I think that these retro consoles are not for everyone. I had serious plans to purchase the SNES Classic but never got around to it and now it seems as though many of those games I would've bought it for will end up on the Switch at some point anyways. Even the PS Classic is kind of lost on me now considering Final Fantasy 7, 8, 9, 10, 10-2, and 12 will all be out on the Switch soon. So what do you all think?
FamiTom posted a topic in Nintendo ChatThis day started like any other. I was reading the news, seeing what was up with Nintendo, and what I found was SHOCKING. I found that Nintendo has just DISCONTINUED the NES CLASSIC. I'll explain more in this article. Now, there are many reasons for this to happen. Firstly, Nintendo didn't mean for this console to become this popular. They basically just made this system to make Nintendo more popular to adults leading up to the Switch's launch. Now that the Switch has launched, the NES Classic is just slowing Nintendo down. WHICH BRINGS ME TO MY NEXT POINT: Nintendo wants their virtual console to be a hit on the Switch. With the NES classic though, people can play $30 classic Nintendo games for $60. That's $2 for each game! well, it's actually less, because the hardware costs a little. Nintendo is also very protective of their games, and with the Classic, they feel that they are selling their games for too little money. Third point: Nintendo feels that by withholding stock, their products become more valuable, and they want their products to become valuable. Maybe they'll bring the NES Classic back for a week, and watch the money roll in. Overall, If you are considering buying a Classic, either buy it NOW online while it's still cheap or buy the game on virtual console. Do you think that this was a good choice for Nintendo to make? Leave your thoughts in the thread. See ya later, FISCUS OUT.
What systems would you like to see on the Switches virtual console? In the Wii U, we had NES, SNES, and N64, along with many Nintendo handhelds. I would like to see all of those with GameCube and the original Nintendo DS on virtual console. Also maybe some Sega consoles couldn't hurt, as long as Nintendo and Sega were in agreement.
Tiffany posted a topic in Retro NintendoSo I just recently got one of the original NES consoles and it came with Mike Tyson's Punch Out. That game is ridiculously hard and all of your opponents are like 5 times your size, it's crazy. It would take 10 tries or more to figure out one opponent just to have to do it all over again when the very next one beat you. And the fact that you can't save until you've beaten the entire circuit doesn't help either. I still haven't gotten through the entire game but I'm determined so it will happen. Did anybody else have this hard of a time or is it just me? Also when did Mario get a second job as a ref???? [ATTACH]2353[/ATTACH]
