Cartridges = Faster load times... Forgive me for being a true gamer and being glad there is a company looking out for my interests.
Was the "true gamer" comment really necessary?
What makes me any less of a gamer then you?
Considering Microsoft bought their way through the last console war, and have tried the same this gen along with Sony... Yes. Nintendo are the only company who are making a profit on their new generation consoles, so forgive me for my confusion...
We were talking about the developers there, I don'tk now why you brought up MS and Sony as a counter...
Anytime the developers want to bring out their own systems, they're more than welcome to I'm sure. But the console makers do have some element of control in that sense.
True but that doesn't mean they need to make it hard for developers and treat them badly, and not expect some heavy backlash.
Back when Square announced that FF will continue on the Playstation, Nintendo's president (forgot who he was) announced basically "Fine! We don't need Square! We can do just fine on our own" which was true, they did fine enough but they really could have gotten even more and stopped Sony from getting such great titles if only they hadn't been so arrogant. Then again, the reason Square left was because of the cartridges.
