It was for the SNES as well, not N64. And Segas downfall with the Sega CD, which I actually liked, was another player in the reasoning of Nintendo pulling out of the deal.

@ hknuddy:

Actually, as much as I love Nintendo, Nintendo actually stabbed Sony in the back, and decided that going with, what i believe was Phillips (double checking atm), to make the CD attachment was a better proposition. "Phillips" got all rights to the system and therefore did not need permission from Nintendo to release games, and was the reason for crappy releases, like the horrendous Zelda CD games.

Not trying to tell you your wrong, just upgrading your knowledge.

"A nintendo console is the retarded cousin of the real consoles (ps3/xbox). The games are all childish and for people that don`t really game."

I guess that is because in the early years of videogaming you actually needed skills to beat a game. Today you just have to have enough patience and play it long enough.

No real gamers playing Nintendo.... phhfsss...

AND heres a cool one:

Sony were originally comissioned by nintendo to develop a disc based addon for N64 after the nintendo disc drive basically died. Sony decided the deal nintendo offered was poor so they went and developed playstation on their own.


and now what do nintendo do?

i`ll tell you,

they sell their consoles SDKs for so little that any screw up company can make an atrocity like `carnival games` and have now flooded the game market with crap.

not to mention the `new generation` of gamers: the exremely young, the extremely old and the extremely female. these are people that are a one time only thing.

the majority of these `casual` gamers will never buy another console, and where will nintendo be then, crawling back to the faithful `hardcore` fans who somehow suck by them through this atrocity of a console.

New Slogan:

`Love Games. Hate Wii`

this is serious business nintendo, y`all need to get

How oh how did I know that after reading this there was going to be some console fanboy boo-hooing. For frigs sake people who gives a freaking damn. I play PC Games, I have a PSP, I have a Wii, I have a NES actually but I personally don`t play that one, I have a DS, I plan on eventually getting a 360, and hell if the price wasn`t so much i`d get a ps3 just because I want to play freaking God Of War 3. Every system has it`s good and bad points and it`s good and bad games. So quit complaining an just buy them all. Jesus...

I remember the Virtua Boy, thought it was pretty damn awesome. We still don`t have a real 3D game system with modern graphics, and when we do it`ll outsell them all.

Nintendo Hard... Metroid, Super Mike Tyson Punchout, Contra...Man, I still use that in describing anything insanely difficult.

Me: Would you say, getting into your pants would be hard, or Nintendo Hard?
Hot Girl: Get away from me, loser!

"Wasent the Playstation 1 among the all times top sold game consoles? why is not in the list but the PS3 it is?"

According to this link, it sold 102m, which would place it at the top of that list. Or wait, what about the PS2? Well, its at 140m, which is even more!

So if the creator of that infographic includes ps3 and xbox360, putting those 2 there wouldve been fair. But whatever...

Saying Nintendo would be "bigger" than Sony is a weird statement too. The only number in which Big N has the upper hand would be market capitalization. Other indicators used to determine the "size" of a company are speak

""I own an atari and an OG nintendo system. I own nothing else!"

You should really consider buying maybe some clothes, a fridge/stove, a chair... maybe a TV to play the games on... I own a lot of things.
I own a NES, SNES, N64, Game Boy, Nintendo DS, XBox 360, PS2 and PS3, to name a few.

"How the hell did Who work out how high Mario jumps?!"

Take Mario`s height, 5`6" let`s say, stalky Italian plumber height.
Count how many times Mario jumps his own height. Solved!

"Wait wait wait wait.. nintendo made halo?"

Wait wait wait wait, no Bungie made Halo. Microsoft bought Bungie.

They just used Halo, Mortal Kombat and Sonic as comparisons for other system`s top selling franchises.

@syke22 no that was just a comparison of Nintendo`s three games against three other very popular franchises

@syke22: No I think they threw in Sonic,Halo and Mortal Kombat for comparison.

Sonic was Sega.

MK was Acclaim.

And Halo was Bungie/Microsoft.

Funny how they claim the Wii to be the best selling Nintendo console of all time, but still compare it to the XBOX 360 and PS3. Maybe they should include the PS2, which is the best selling games console, ever.

Nintendo bought out the rights to sega a few years ago so Sonic can be there. Halo`s a bit left-field though...

Wii Fit is probably the reason the Wii has sold so well. Old people (my mom) bought a Wii just for Wii Fit.
