Well hare is some interesting news.
Activision, maker of Guitar Hero, has threatened to cut off support from the PS3 and PSP completely and give out more support to the Xbox 360—and Wii!—if Sony doesn’t cut the price of the Playstation 3 by 2010-2011.
More interesting news.
It seems that Nintendo DOES like the hardcore… however, the hardcore is not supporting them. For example, despite that MadWorld and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars very high reviews, they never made to even lick the NPD top 10. And, I fear –not just them, but me too—that The Conduit—that is coming out in a matter of days—will go down the same line as MadWorld and GTA: Chinatown Wars.
I have got to say… I am very disappointed about you hardcore gamers. You guys just can’t seem to appreciate Nintendo’s games that would come out OR the third-parties—except any Mario, Zelda, or Metroid games. All you guys think is that the Wii is a casual system and the rest are hardcore.
Well, I got NEWS for you. It’s sorta the other way around.
Look at how many casual titles are coming for the 360/PS3. If you look at it properly, you’ll see that there are more casual titles then ever on those systems. Add Project Natal and Playstation Motion Controller and you got a casual-lineup.
The Wii on the other hand will have more hardcore games in the coming months like The Conduit, Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, and Dead Space: Extraction just to name a few. Add games such as Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers, Super Mario Galaxy 2, and Metroid: Other M and you have gotten one of the best line-up ever made for Wii.
But really… look at the web pages above for more information about how hardcore gamers don’ support Nintendo enough and how Activision is pressuring Sony to cut the price of the PS3 or else it’s bye-bye Guitar Hero 5.
