I flew off the handle this morning. If the $250 to $300 price tag holds, the 3DS will certainly be expensive, yes, but once it’s viewed as Nintendo’s next gen console effort—as I predicted it would be—things make much more sense.
It has the power, the hook (glasses-free 3D), and the technical chops to differentiate itself from the Wii and existing DS lines. The 3DS is Nintendo’s next console.

Are you excited for ESPN on your Xbox 360? Check your zipcode. I live in New York City, but Time Warner Cable in Brooklyn does not support ESPN3.com, so my Xbox 360 can’t use the ballyhooed Xbox integration.
And yet the people affected by this must still pay the additional $10 Microsoft requires of all Xbox Live customers due to the “incredible value” they will be receiving from new features they cannot use.
Seriously, Nintendo, what the fuck?
Nintendo is asking anyone who’s had Metroid Other M game-ending bugs to send the corrupted discs to them for fixing. Maybe they should just hold onto them and send everyone a refund instead.
PS – This game already is a failure. I didn’t know it was possible to actually fail more. This game-ending bug proves that it is!
There’s absolutely no truth to the rumor I just started that Peter Molyneux cancelled vaporware title Project Milo so that he could focus entirely on lying and exaggerating about Fable 3′s capabilities.
RIP, Project Milo that never really existed.
Bungie folks had to resort an obscure “record number of games played” metric to promote the “success” of Halo Reach today. Looks like they’re getting out of the Halo biz at exactly the right time.
Every few years or so Nintendo releases a console. The specs are predictably spartan, and the response from the hardtards is predictably predictable. How do they expect us to take their “artistic” games seriously when they can’t even use the Google to check and see if what they’re attacking Nintendo with is the same exact thing they said about the DS phat?
If Japanese developers really want to get out of the rut they seem to think they’re in (and believe me they are in a rut), maybe they should start by changing the ridiculous names they give all their big titles?
Amazing! You can literally see the Metroid franchise dying at 8:41.
