And look how nicely that worked for the WiiU.Kibeth41 said:Because it's not like the 3DS, Wii U, Wii, DS, and N64 were all trying something different or anything. This is literally the first console where Nintendo has gone off the deep end. /sarc
Outside the nintendo handhelds, carts were pretty much abandoned. And in this digital era there is even less reason for adeveloper to want to invest in such a money sink as cartidges. Disks were significantly cheaper than carts and that's why the industry as a whole kind ran in that direction.The gaming industry never got rid of cartridges. Only the home consoles. But there are have always been very clear advantages to using cartridges. And as we move more and more into the digital era, cartridges are less detrimental to developers.
No one calls a laptop a handheld so please , let's try not to be pedantic. This thing, from what we've hear already is going to be larger than an Ipad, or those controllers will be cripplingly small. Even uusing teh wii mot dpad stick, to mount two of those... you know what. nuff said. I'mm calling it right here. this will be Virtual boy 2.0.And an iPad IS a handheld. A device used while held in your hands = handheld. 'Handheld' is not a synonimous term with 'small enough to fit into a pocket'.
Course so long as Nintendo says there's gonna be a pokemon game on it, people will bank roll the idiotic thing.
As for battery life, we'll see. It's clear they're taking steps to make the console run efficiently. But if they're able to give the Pro Controller 80+ hours of battery life, then I'm sure they can give the NX at least 4. Neither of us can cast any logical judgement until the console's shown.[/quote]
