My entire street and school friend group had Master Systems, trading games was the tits. I still have not, to this day, seen an NES in real life.

Mario Kart didn't come out until the SNES bolts.

still doesnt make any sense why he would refer to it as mario cart, when all games for NES were cartridges and theres actually a game called mario kart..

because Super Mario Bros and Duck Hunt were separate games, before being re-packaged as one cart, so he was saying how awesome it was to have them on one cart?

Apparently this is standard, another article talked about how Sony didnt do this, and how it was unique because usually they use PCs specced to the system (because there is no way to know what the specs of the computer in the photos are really).

Thank goodness. Nice to know Microsoft actually listened to their customer base rather than dictated to them.

It will be interesting to see how many more pre-orders the XBone gets now, I will guess it's heaps.

Also curious to see if the cost of digital games will now actually be cheaper than physical disc's. PSX just announced the price point of US$60 for disc's and I think MS did too, but no word on digital download costs from either camp.

It was obviously ms keeping some of the secondhand games market, I thought it might have been a good idea if it kept the price of new games down. Seems they're gonna be cheap enough anyway, what currency was that price quoted in? Still going PS4 just comfortable with the controllers.

Stoked on xbone finally having some sense.

Some retailers here are doing the PS4 games for $59 with $20 off each one if you preorder 3 or more. So basically every 4th game is free, kinda chur.

Digital downloads for windows are the same price as buying in a shop, more or less. Also in a promo video I watched for PS4, the kid buys killzone (I think) off the store for $60, so I'd guess the price point is about the same. Kinda makes sense when development and marketing of the games is 90% of the expense, with only a negligible amount going towards actually pressing the disc and shipping it.

Good to see MS back down on some of its bullshit but the damage has been done.

Apparently the Wii U was for sale in Dick Smiths for 149$ though?? Fuck if I had time to play something new I would have been in there like a shot. Guess they're banking on Nintendo to get owned pretty hard. But I dunno maybe they've got something up there sleeve. In any case 150 for a console is fucking crazy, especially considering I'd mod it eventually (eg free games)

There's one in our flat and I've killed a few hours playing Nintendoland, especially multiplayer, but where the hell are the other games?
It's crazy, you can't bring out a console and then not make games for it Nintendo : S

Literally nothing, right? Monster Hunter? ZombiU looked interesting but kinda sucked. That's it? No wonder my flatmate wants to trade it in, but good luck getting anything decent now that they've been for sale that cheap
