    my thoughts on nintendo. what and when is nintendo going to launch in china? is it going to be a new ique player? china and india are the sole reasons we have region locked console's. billions are lost to these markets each year and is increasing year over year. if nintendo was going to go with a new region free console, they would need to make the device in china to avoid legal and tax issues as well as importing costs to help maintain a low cost console. once nintendo announces this their stock is going to go threw the roof. but we have to wait and see what nintendo has going behind the scenes. one thing is for sure. it will have to be similiar to the wii u and 3ds architecture in terms of development or it will suffer from bloated development costs. I think nintendo will launch in China with their next console (fusion).

    Nintendo has a fantastic lineup for the upcoming holiday season but Mario Kart 8 along with the new DLC and Smash Bros is gonna undoubtedly own it. The Wii U is already closing in on 8 million but I honestly think after the holidays it will be at 11 million……12 million at a stretch

    • JTurner82

      It'll take a miracle if they can hit that.

      • SoccerStar9001

        Nintendo always make miracles

  • JTurner82

    If ONLY they had this lineup last year instead…. Oh well, what am I kidding? I can't go back in an Epoch ala CHRONO TRIGGER and undo that. It IS a good lineup.

    • PrimusOrion

      Epoch, Chronotrigger 2 and I shall be happy.

      • hawkssuns08

        I actually want a Chrono Cross remake….. :)

        • Mythosa

          Ick. I didn't enjoy that game at all. None of the charm of CT imo.

          • hawkssuns08

            I loved both. CT definitely had the tech system better, and the tolerable party amount… Sheesh. There were like, 30 characters in Cross, most being irrelevant except one or two scenes. Cross… just needs some fixes and I feel its a flawless game, hence the remake request.

    Bayonetta 2 and Smash Wii U together won Nintendo this holiday season for me, not too mention the Mario Kart 8 DLC. Microsoft is doing great as well with Sunset Overdrive, Halo MCC and the price cut. I just wish we were still getting X this year :(

    • JaxonH

      Indeed. And for me, Captain Toad is also an equally appealing game this season, right up there with Smash, Bayonetta 2 and MK8 DLC.

      And Sunset Overdrive is really fun, in case you were thinking about getting it. I was actually considering canceling my preorder, but I'm so glad I didn't because the game is leagues better than it looks.

      • Grey1399

        I'm looking to get the bundle but I can't find it anywhere.

  • UnovaMaster

    of couse thie do nintendo is the best company of all time the other compani ar CRAPPPP and anyone that thinks otherwise is not a tru gamer

    • Hardin25

      Only if English was your first language…

      • Revolution_5268

        Apparently they don't teach English in school anymore.

        • UnovaMaster

          im not a kid in 42 years old an ive been gaming since 1980 soo everything ive said is a FACT

          • Revolution_5268

            Another topical "grown up MAN" thinks that his opinion is better because you are 42… sad fool.

          • UnovaMaster

            lol is tipical not topical lol moron XPOSED

          • Mythosa

            Weird. I could have swore it was typical.

          • ImperiusNovus

            I must ask, what is the purpose of these excessively aggressive comments?

          • UnovaMaster

            well i would ask why have the people in this forum showed me such scorn i came to this forum from gamefaqs because i found out this place is ideal for nintendo fans but all i received was complaints

          • Revolution_5268

            Your attitude so far is nothing but bashing others that are pro for PlayStation & Xbox. You rage on the internet like a 13 year old yet you claim you are a "42 year old".

          • UnovaMaster

            i do what any true nintendo fan would do i mean the playstation and xbox fans qre the same are they

          • Revolution_5268

            No that is what a fanboy would do.
            If your a "true nintendo fan" you would never behave like that.
            You are a patsy and a poser.

          • UnovaMaster

            the omly poser here is you what kind of fan likes all 3 companis a fan by definition only is a fan of one and rejects eberything else

          • Revolution_5268

            I am a fan of video games not a fan of the companies.

            Your definition is what a fanboy of the company is. This is no console wars.

            Oh and the way every time you type you don't surprise me with your spelling.

          • Hardin25

            You and the Sonic 'fanbase' have one thing in common.
            You cause us true fans embarrassment. I may not favor Sony or Microsoft as companies, and I may even hold Nintendo on a higher level than them, but I at least can find joy in the competition's games. I like Halo. It was my first taste of the shooter genre. I like(d) Assassin's Creed. AC4 was my favorite non-Nintendo game on WiiU. The first game system i played on was the PS2. I have played on a 360 way before I got a Wii. What I'm saying is this:We are video gamers, not cheerleaders. We can have our favorite company, system, franchise, genre, and CEO, but we are 100% linked to them. I have nothing against PS4 or X1 owners (my brother is getting the X1)
            Like Revolution said, I'm a fan of video games, before I'm a fan of a company.
            Now i got a Mario Kart tournament to attend to in 30 minutes and need to practice.

          • hawkssuns08

            Ignore him guys…. Clearly a troll.

          • ColressX

            i feel the same way as you the only diferences is that for me the Pokemon fan base cause true fans embarrassment and non Nintendo games that i like are sly cooper final fantasy 13 and Ninokuni

          • Mythosa

            Ummm k. Explain to me what the definition of a fan is and where it says you can only be a fan of one thing?
            By YOUR definition of fan you could only like hockey but nothing else, not football, baseball, hell even video games and TV are off the table according to you…

          • JTurner82

            Real fans don't go around bashing other people for their consoles of choice; they go around playing games without giving a damn.

          • TLH14

            So the fans of other companies are wrong to bash on your console of choice, therefore you must do the same to them?

            How do you not see the flaw in that logic?

          • ColressX

            Logic lol that's a good one this wackos post have lacked logic from the very beginning he is an embarrassment to Nintendo fan and gamers everywhere

          • Mythosa

            All fans of everything actually.

          • PrimusOrion

            You are welcome here. Your opinion will not be understood on player essence for a while. I too had the same in the beginning, but earned my stripes with researched and tactful posts. Welcome

          • Revolution_5268

            oh the irony.

        • Hardin25

          They don't? Then what am I learning in school…
