Some info about the Nintendo old and new
Here you go
I had no idea how successful pokemon was
Most of that I knew or had a rough idea about it.
neither did I, 200 million is a lot of copies
Of course Pokemon is huge. I don't know anyone that has one Pokemon game. Shit, I remember one year they had like 5 releases. lol
you gotta collect 'em all.
I knew it would be on a top ten list. I would have guessed at number 5. I certainly would not have put it higher then Zelda.
Something that wasn't mentioned about Nintendo on any of those lists.
At launch I know the Wii was priced to turn a profit. I think the Gamecube was too. I know damned well that everytime they release a new portable that is priced to sell at a profit.
Microsoft and Sony cannot claim that.
I had this Pokeman pinball game that I could not stop playing.
You would play and complete tasks and hit scores and you would open up new Pokeman. There was also random Pokeman you could open up too.
I was fucking addicted to trying to fill that list.
Look how much of a flop the gamecube was too. I heard the only reason nintendo survived that was because of the GBA dominatin the handheld market
Pokemon battle in Smash Brothers is epic.
Turn off all items except poke-balls, turn up item frequency to highest.
They could flop like that 3 generations in a row and remain in business. They have more disposable assets than all of Sony.
It is a little ridiculous how much they've dominated. Look in comparison to halo, xbox's number #1 seller
i like how they ignore that PS2 is the best selling system of all time
ya that's true, I laughed at that too
DS is only 15 million behind the ps2. Think it'll pass it? With the 3d one rumoured now it wouldn't surprise me
That's how it goes. Madden games are the crack of gaming. Pokemon games are the meth.
Nintendo survived the Generation because they made profit on every gamecube sold. Critics called that gen for nintendo a failure while Nintendo was laughing all the way to the bank.
Nintendo makes systems to make a profit. I don't think they've ever taken a hit on a console.
Poor gamecube, such an underrated system.
I think Call of Duty took Madden's fire. I don't think CoD can hold up for as long as Madden has though.
Pokemon probably makes them shitloads of cash, even outside of game sales. They sell so much merchandise around the franchise, plus a hugely popular tv show that gets airtime almost everyday for the past 12 years.
I think they fucked up by making it purple and the fact that DVDs were the hotness at the time. I really enjoyed my gamecube though, namely Metroid Prime, Pikmin, Smash Bros, Viewtiful Joe, and Eternal Darkness.
Ya I bet you're right. Just looking at it in comparison to the others just makes it look that way. I had one. Had some sweet titles including Smash Brothers Melee, one of the best. RE 4 was awesome on it when it first came out. I always liked the Pikmin games too
oh ya, Eternal Darkness was so sweet. The metal gear remake was really fun too. Mario Kart was a blast and actually paper mario wasn't bad either
I'm actually surprised the N64 was so low. When those things came out everyone I knew had one
