Treyarch Confirms Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 Is For Xbox One, PlayStation 4 And PC Only

Treyarch has confirmed to Eurogamer that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is only in development for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC and there will be no ports this time around. So, that sounds pretty much final. If you want to play the game you’re going to need a PlayStation 4, Xbox One or a decent PC. You can watch the reveal trailer for the game in the video posted above.

“There are no ‘ports'” Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia said at the game’s reveal event. “The game is made on multiple platforms, it’s the beginning of a new generation and we’re showing it to you on all these platforms, to dispel some of the misconceptions about development.”

“We’re working on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. That’s it,” he added. As for other platforms such as PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and – stop smirking at the back – Wii U? We were directed to Activision, which said it had no further platform announcements at this time.

      2. Hey, that’s nice. I wouldn’t mind having a PS4, or an Xbox One, I like some of their exclusives, it’s just that I don’t have a lot of time to play so I need to prioritize. And for me Nintendo (Wii U / 3DS) and a PC complement very well. Best of both worlds. I already have a HUGE backlog so it would be crazy to add another console.

      11. Sorry to piss on the ps4 fanboys parade but Treyarch never said it isn’t coming to Wii U. We won’t find out if it does until at least E3. The reason being Microsoft pays a crap ton of money to show off the game at their press conference and if everybody knows its coming out for360/ps3/Wii u they’ll hold off buying a console. This has been the norm for Nintendo fans since WAW on Wii so I don’t know why websites like Nintendo life post articles like this. Maybe click bait?

      12. BLACKB0ND, why are you always trashing Nintendo and the Nintendo fanbase?

        Yeah, I’m a Nintendo fan. But I’m not afraid to call out Nintendo whenever they make questionable decisions like region locking, not getting third party support, poor handling of the amiibo situation, lack of online features in certain games and not including a charger in the N3DS XL (Really Nintendo?). Did I forget to mention having an anti-gamergate guy voice Abe Lincoln in Code Name STEAM?

        Yes, this sucks that COD BO3 is skipping the Wii U. But that doesn’t mean you should make fun of us fans because of it. Believe me, I’ve sent Nintendo several messages urging them to get more third party support and what do they say? “It’s up to them, not us.” Dude, you can’t rely on your first party titles alone! Are you serious!? And when we do get third party support, it’s mostly gimped ports with missing dlc and missing modes and features? I’ve contacted Nintendo about this as well, but they say the same thing. So don’t sit there and tell us “nananananana you don’t get COD on Wii U!” when really, it’s just making things worse.

        Go ahead and call me a corporate slave or a social reject and make fun of me all you want because you’ll just keep proving me right by doing so.

        Liked by 1 person

      5. Sorry, dude, but the “Wonderful 101” which you speak of (the game right?) was a success. Btw. like Bayonetta 2.

        You forget following things:

        Bayonetta 2 was just a Kind of “Port” from Xbxo 360. It wasn`t a WiiU-designed game (from scratch), They just took their engine over from Xbox 360-early code (in their developer-diary they said the game should have come for Xbox 360, but MS ditched the Project early), adapt it to be able to run on WiiU and thats it. Bayonetta 2 isn`t even using two cpu-cores like it should and that made it easier in programming since ist much easier to program one cpu-core than it is to make it dualcore/threecore or even more cores using. Ist a cheap- guessed 20 Mio. Dollar game. So you don´t Need to sell one Million Units to be successfull! About 200K sold Units (for a Price of each 50 Dollars) would be enough and it even surpassed 500K Units right now ich heard last.

        The same goes for Wonderful 101. Cheap game. Thats why theres no german speach, no real video-sequences (well there are only Comics you know?)- ist cheap- in every regard. I guess the developer-costs of Wonderful 101 was about ~10 mio. Dollars. The game also only uses an adapted engine for WiiU and wasn`t optimized or made from the beginning for WiiU. See?

        And what have both games in common? Oh yeah- but games come from PLATINUM games, which made perfect PowerPC-games in the past. See? They are japanese and as such know how to adopt to different PowerPC-cpus and or different architectures. But Platinum right now SUCKS at x86-programming, thats why “the legend of KORRA” was crap.

        But in the end all what Counts is the success. Ist allready a GIVEN that Bayonetta 3 will be coming soon for WiiU or will be done for next N-console. it may be even announced this e3 or in one of the next Directs or when Platinum says what it plans next. Platinum even thanked the fans to buy their games.

        Ist just the fact: Sonyfans doesn´T understand that Nintendo allways designs their games- and their Projects they give to other developrs- to be cheaper than the average game- they simply are jealous. They hope to get Bayonetta 2/3 also. But they won`t since Platinum doesn´t care about x86. Bad luck for you. Platinum doesn´T adopt to x86, since X86 is crap.

        Right now x86-architecture has NO FUTURE (Intel knows this dirty secret, since they allready have too many borders and cannot surpass them since you know- physics right? Mores law for Intel-cpus has ended 2 years ago).

        The only cpu-tech still advancing right now are:

        PowerPC and some supercomputer-architectures (like many-core-cpus based on risc-cores) and…you guessed it…ARM

        the Problem why Nintendo cannot use ARM is => too slow. PowerPC beats it easily with much lower clock, even 64bits doesn`T help. A 4-stage pipeline-design with 1 Ghz simply can do much more specific calculations- than a comparable 2 Ghz 8-pipeline-design. Thats why PowerPC is also used in space.

        Intels newest cpu will only be about guessed ~5% stronger per core- than the last Haswell. See? Thats the Problem of x86 right now. Usually the cpus should be about 50% stronger each 1.5 years. But they aren`t. Sandybridge from 2011 is only about ~15% slower as the newest haswell. And the problems of that are advancing fast.

        Why do you think People are still using their old Sandybridge cpu from 2011 for newest games going to come out in 2015/2016? because ist simply not worth it to consider upgrading it. Thats why.

      6. “So, it is Nintendo’s job to hcase down third parties.”

        No it isn`t. Sorry but thats the truth. Nintendo simply doesn`T care about Thirdparties anymore. They don`t give them money, as they use the money to get other developers which truly care about their customers/gamers (like Valhalla-studios for example or Platinum games, next one could be even Konami, and they also have Namco-Bandai on their side) and rather give them money to make games suited only for their platform and which are optimized and not crappy ports. And thats better. So that overhyped crap like Watchflops, Titanfail or Call of Booby- isn`t rushed out for WiiU. That means- this gen WiiU is going to get ist OWN games, Not the same 90% of the lineup which PC also gets.

        People on WiiU simply are SMARTER than stupid sonyboys or Xboxfans that buy every overhyped crap (and whats more funnier is- they even hyped up the new StarWars xD) . We get the best JRPG of this gen.What do you get? Final Failtasy? xD Have fun with the 20th FF-game, which developers even say, they are astonished from XCX. And whats more funny is: You don`t Need 100 games to be happy on a platform. I will Play the shit out of XCX. And after that only gems are on ist way. Where are the gems for PS4? Tell me?

        After Bloodborne right now, there is only Witcher 3, which is much better played on a PC. Witcher 3 is going to be drastically downgraded on PS4 and Xbox One. Have fun with that crisp game with nearly no draw-sight.

        Btw- idiot? Nitnendo didn`t “chase down” thirdparties on Wii, they came on their own. They made stupid CoDs and other crap-games for Wii, because it was CHEAP to make ports from other platforms since they had LUCK that Nintendo didn`T use too exotic tech. But this gen, ports won`t work because this isn`t a cheap singlecore-cpu anymore and you Need Special engines to make games to work like they should. Thats why they are angry. But what they Forget about it:

        If they don´t expend, EA will fall soon, since EA lost The Sims-Franchise and SimCity too! EA is considered to be dying in the next 1-2 years now. Konami is also dead, you heard the News right? See? Every thirdparty is DYING, Nintendo isn`t caring and they have enough Money to survive the coming Crash.

        See? Nintendo doesn`t Need them. Nintendo only cares about themselves. If Thirdparties decide they don´t Need Nintendo this gen- or decide to only bring not-working games for N this gen, then the consequences will be on THEIR side, not on Nintendos (since Nintendo doesn´t care if Thirdparty-games do not sell, why should they?). Nintendo is allready Swimming in Money again since they make enough Money right now with WiiU to get healthy back the next financial quarter! EA, Ubisoft, Activision- and even Sony & MS – are NOT SWIMMING in Money right now. They are bleeding Money.

        Why? Because Sony doesn`t have Amiibo to Keep them afloat. Sony doesn´t even have NFC-Technology in their console. NFC is the future of payment btw. And MS- well they lose a lot of Money right now (bleeding it out) sincce the Xbox One cannot cope with the “success” (for Sonyfans the PS4 seems like a success) of PS4, thus they make it cheaper and cheaper, but not enough People buy it. And because EA and Ubisoft lost a LOT of franchises to Indie-developer (Yeah you read that right! To Indies! Indies made better games than Assassins Creed Unity or Sims 4 this gen).

        Just ask yourself the question: What happens if the newest CoD sells even less Units than last COD? You guessed it: Then Activision will have big Trouble ahead.

        Like i said: All thirdparties are going to go down this gen. Konami is next, the leader will leave the Company in a few days. That means => no more Silent Hill since that leader was the SUCCESS of that Franchise! It means Silent Hil is now officially dead. It also means, Metal Gear Solid 5 may be rushed out- and no MGS6 since ist the same Situation with Silent Hills too. Without the leader you can´T make good games.

        see? The good old times of easy porting are over. Deal with it ;) World is moving on. Even if it means without Sony/MS, without EA/Boobysoft or other thirdparty-developers.

        Btw: “And that’s exactly the problem. They NEED to start caring!”

        No one cares about Thirdparty any more. Nintendo neither. See your fail now? I don`t care about SIms anymore (the Franchise for me died now not buying the next games coming, and didn`t buy Sims 4 either), my girlfriend doesn`T care. Its OVER for thirdparties. I am also no longer buying any Rayman-games. See? Its not MY Problem. Its the thirdpartys-problems, since THEY are starting to lose many Gamers. Nintendo doesn`T have to care because they know whats Happening in the Long-run. They know they will Need enough Money to survive those hard days heading for ALL of us (that includes you).

        EA, Ubisoft and Co are going to learn it the hard way. Guess what that means? The guy who has the Money (and that right now is MS and Nintendo, not Sony) is going to win the war. Sorry, dude, when Sony will run out of Money soon- they will be bought over- or well they are bankrupt and closed forever – just like Konami and others and THQ and others in the past. Nintendo doesn`T care. Why should Nintendo care? 5 Billions are enough to survive the next 10 years. Then EA& others (Konami etc) will be gone. No one is going to care about Konami when the leader left. The Company simply will die and all of its until-then famous franchises. And with it dies another Chance of japanese-gaming. See? The fight is over. Nintendo is going to win the war in the Long-run.

        Not EA & others are going to win. EA & others are going to lose millions of gamers, thats how it Looks right now, since CoD allready lost millions of Gamers. Gamers care about GOOD games, not about crap games. And that Shows with WiiU too, since most CoD-players Play their CoD still on Wii. And guess why?

        Because the old parts are the much better ones, and i agree with them. Newest parts are just => Crap that many People are starting to regret that they bought it. Since Players also Play much more Battlefield 3 today- than Bugfield 4.

        See? 100 Mio. People decided to rather Play CoD Modenr Warfare 3 on Wii- than to buy a new console, just to Play stupid Call of Duty – Black Ops 2 or the coming games. Thats how it goes and it Shows. The consequences are allready there. No one can hide from it. And nintendo is the only healthy Publisher right now. Developers are dying like flies. Nintendo simply doesn`t have to care. They do what they allways do: Look Forward, look to survive the coming hard days when Indies will finally take over and Thirdparties are finally gone and it all starts over again (remember? EA once started as an Indie). Why do you think Konamis leader left and is now INDIE too?

      13. Exactly. Now think about it!

        Why did People buy call of Duty on Wii? Why did millions buy Wii-games? It isn`t Magic! it was because of => high Quality-games. Just that. Mario Galaxy, Mario Strikers Charged Football- all those Quality-games. And even Thirdparties made some real good games for Wii, like Ice Age 3 etc- but in Gamecube-days the thirdparties were better! See? Thats what Nintendofans like me care about. QUALITY. We don`t care about what my neighboughs are buying. We don`t care about what others do. We only care about ourselves. Selfish, but thats the way we are. We buy what we want not what others like neighbours or other stupid persons tell us to do. We have something called freedom.

        For example: i bought the gamecube late, because it lacked good and enough of Nintendos 1st-party-games. I therefore bought it to Play Sonic Adventure Two and other famous and perfect working-3D Jump n´Runs for it (over the hedge, never played it? Go test it its the craziest Jump n´run i ever played, Ice Age 2 etc). I didn`T bought it for StarWars or Mario Sunshine (xD) or other crappy 1st-party-games. from Nintendo those days (like Mario Kart, which only had 16 tracks which simply was not enough for me). I bought it for Thirdparty. But since those days the Thirdparty-developres changed. Instead of cool Ice Age 3-successor they decided to make it a minigame-collection- thus i have to search for alternatives and i found them. Guess where? Nintendo Baby. Nintendoland is better than Ice Age 3, much better and not only about minigames. Nintendo has a better 3D-Jump n´Run then todays Thirdparties alltogether, Nintendo has all those franchises perfect now and they grow each gen with more fans.

        5 years after the gamecube i bought the Wii for its perfect-working 1st-Party-games. So my taste in gaming has changed drastically. Instead of unfinished laggy, crappy Thirdparty-games i today prefer the same Quality like Thirdparties had it in 2005 for such Genres.

        And now we have Buggy, laggy Call of Duty on WiiU. Whats the Point in buying that Piece of crap which doesn´T even run at stable 30 fps? Thirdparties are allready dying like flies (Konami is next with all of its franchises lost)- and they know that their fate awates them. Nintendos health is good since there are amiibo and other things to Keep their Business healthy- even if there console right now isn`t a success.

        What People fail to understand is: The Wii wasn`t a success because of 100 Mio Units sold!

        It was because Nintendo got more than 5 Billion Dollars out of it. Thats what you make consoles for. For Money. Sony lost 2-3 Billion Dollars because of PS3.

        A device sold 100 Mio. times doesn`T automically get a success. it is a only a real succes if you get much Money out of it. NO one is happy if you sell something 100 mio. times but you don`t get rich with it. Whats the case then? Its no success. It goes the same for Gameboy, PS1, PS2 and all other famous devices (yes, even Apples Iphones and Ipads). Allways the same: Make much Money. Thats why this Business exists.

Third parties wouln’t know how their games sell on Nintendo platforms because there’s always something wrong with the ones they release for them. Consumer trust is another issue. You don’t gain it overnight and you need to continuously respect them.

      18. Eh, actually, yes, Nintendo does need to chase developers, if the situation calls for measurements like that for their console and supporters. They could have easily paid developers to bring their games to the WiiU, and we all know Nintendo has more than enough money to do that. It would have helped them quite a bit if they had done that with some of the bigger titles they’re missing out on.

        In the gaming industry, consoles sell games, and games sell consoles. So yea, sometimes console developers do need to chase game developers and have them help out in certain situations, like the one the WiiU is in right now.

        And yes, while it might not be the console developer’s job to market the games they got from 3rd-parties, doing it definitely is going to help strengthen their relationship with those developers, which might turn out profitable in the long run, as the chance of getting more support from said developers in the future will grow.
        I’ve seen 3rd-party games come up in PS4 ads + Sony advertising 3rd-party games so often now, it really is no surprise they’re getting so much support from other developers. Seen similar XB1 ads as well. Maybe Nintendo should consider it.

      19. Not really. For nintendo to pay for every game these developers want to sell, they might as well just throw all their money on the top of the tallest building. Developer needs to build and manage a team, pay for the amount of time to make the port, wages, resources and material etc. And then charge nintendo so that the developer wont be in a loss. And lets say they do this for every triple A game

        And while i agree on the last part a little. It would mean that not only is nintendo paying for the port to their console but they have pay for the marketing for that same game as well.

        Nintendo may have money but a loss is a loss. Sony does it because they know that it is a win-win for them. As for nintendo they know the math and wont be winning anything

      20. Yes, that’s why I said “for some of the bigger titles they’re missing out on”. :) Of course it would be a bit unrealistic (and not very profitable) for them to pay for every single one of the blockbusters they’ve missed out on, I do agree with you on that. I personally had games like GTA, Kingdom Hearts and such in mind, btw.

        And as far as the ads go, it doesn’t necessarily have to be an ad entirely dedicated to that one game, really. I’ve seen Sony make ads focused on the PS4, while having a bunch of games, including both exclusives and multiplats, appear in clever ways. That is advertising for themselves and for the others at the same time, meaning, they wouldn’t just waste all their money in favour of another developer’s game. Their own product is still the main focus, but attention for the other developers’ products is being raised as well.
        Or they could just take a game’s ad, and just put that “WiiU” animation screen at the very beginning; both Microsoft and Sony do that with their ads too, and it seems to be working just fine. I don’t think that would be too big of an investment either honestly, and it still would be effective in terms of advertising. It’s definitely better than nothing at all, that’s for sure. It just shouldn’t be written off right away without even trying, I seriously believe that it could help Nintendo and turn into a win-win situation for them as well if they had support from 3rd-party developers – emphasis on if, though, hah.

      21. Nintendo has no interest in strenghten the relationshop to anyone. Sorry, But you have to accept that Nintendo ist not your friendly neighbour. Seems you doesn`T know what “capitalism” really means huh? Are you a 15-year old? Never learned such things in School?

        => Its better to only care for yourself. And thats the lesson Sony and other big thirdparty-developers have to learn now. See? Sony is bleeding Money right now, since it would cost them ~1 Billion Dollar to repair the PSN like it should. But they don`T have that Money. While MS is pooping out things here and there- and losing also Money, but in the Long run MS doesn´T have to care about such things as they simply can buy Sony tomorrow, and no one could do anything against it.

        its KONAMI which is dead now and losing lots of franchises the next months. This is not a Nintendo-market, but a sony-MARKET! Nintendo wasn`t losing a SINGLE developer the last 5 years! It was Sony + MS, my friend. EA lost Sims-Franchise and SimCity, Konami looses Silent Evil and MGS next.

        Why should Nintendo care about someone who doesn`t make games for them? Nintendo simply doesn`t care because its capitalism.

        Welcome to reality my friend.

      22. A video game console can’t survive on its own, it needs games; therefore, a console developer can’t make profit when there’s not enough games to sell the console. And since it’s not quite in the realms of possibility for Nintendo themselves to put out a game every single month, they need other developers to support their console as well to be able to give the consumers a decent amount of games per year + make the console worthwhile, and in the end, to make profit.
        The video game market isn’t your average market where you can just rely on your product itself, there are so many factors you need to keep in mind to get maximum profit – and as a console developer, support from 3rd-parties is one of those important factors. To make profit, you must have good relationships to other participants of the industry, the game developers, to get their support, because a console is highly reliant on other products, which is software, to be able to succeed.
        And you’re right, Nintendo indeed does not care about getting on good terms with other developers. But maybe if they changed that, the WiiU might actually have a chance for success.

        I didn’t understand the other parts of your comment, specifically the ones where you brought up Sony, Konami etc., so I can’t comment on that.

      24. No, his Point is:

        Nintendo simply makes more Quality games (and undeniably better ones). That means. If a thirdparty decides to bring his games on a N-platform he has to make sure it works! Not Nitnendo has to make sure it works. It is not Nintendos Job to optimize your games! Ist the developers Job to make sure the game works and to bring the knowledge with him to get it working! Ist NOT NINTENDOS JOB to tell you 10-year knowledge of how to program for PowerPC. See your fail now? Not nintendo is responsible for not-working games.

        Nintendo is ONLY providing the platform and it allways was like this idiot. Even in N64-days, Nintendo didn`t care about thirdparties. It was just like => Thirdparties were HEADING to Nintendo, because it was EASY to develop. Every idiot could make in such times. You wouldn`t even needed a Java-study in These days to make games since there was no => JAVA.

        Why do you think Gameboy was a success? It was because => Gameboy was cheapest- it had the longest battery-power (over 15 hours with 4 batteries)- and- the most important:

        it got the most games. Why do you think it got the most games? Simple- because it had a CISC-cpu. Yes, the Gameboy had a Z80-cpu, that is a very early Cisc-cpu. Cisc means, ist fucking easy to program for. BTW: TETRIS, the worlds most successfull handheld-game was made by RUSSIANS. Why do you think that is? Ist because => Russians loved to program for Gameboy since it was using easy to develop early x86-tech (the Z80-design became later the normal x86-design you have today in a PS4, an Xbox One or PCs). The Z80 was very complex cpu, yet it was fast enough and it was easy as hell to program anything for it. It was the easiest-to-program-for-Hardware in These days! Even in famous films- where everything is crushed…guess what? They take out an Gameboy and say “Hey i`ve got a Gameboy, we can use this to program that Virus”. Why do you think that is? Ist allways the same.

        In these days, there was no ARM-cpu! Thus Nintendo had no choice for other cpu or architectures.

        But Cisc was beginning to became inefficent in the next centuries. See? In the late 1990s, t he ARM-cpu architecture was Born and was used as ARM7 in the famous Gameboy Advance, the REAL Gameboy-successor (it was about ~17x faster, enabled early 3D-games and was even able to deliver JAVA-processing and accelleration). ARM means just => RISC-design. And RISC is the complete opposite of CISC. RISC means => You have to have good real programming-knowledge, but it also means your games are having much less bugs and simply work better (more fluid). And that is because Arm doesn`t have- what IT-students call “Unwanted behaviour”. See? It just means => PowerPC has much less “errata” than todays x86-cpus which have that Errata, which leads to => unwanted behaviour.

        And then PowerPC was Born shortly after ARM was there. And the first PowerPC (early R4000-design) was used in Nintendo 64. It enabled complete new games. And from there on, Nintendo was in LOVE with PowerPC. The Gamecube used a very efficient PowerPC. The Wii- had 80% of the cpu-power (per core, that means about 30%) of the Xbox 360- with just 729 Mhz! And now the WiiU uses a very similar, but far more advanced and backwads-compatible (only possible becasue they went for 3-core-design => asynchronic architecture) cpu- the Espresso, which was called like that, since it has the same bandwith as modern PC-cpus (x86), but does all this with much less energy, is able to run with 100°C (yes, 100°C, AMD isn`t able to run stable over time with just 60°C), and ist simply much better, not just good in SIMD like AMD is. See? Games aren´t only about SIMD. You do many calculations in todays games, SIMD are just used for doing explosions and such things.

        Back to PowerPC: Why do you think Apple went with PowerPC in those days? They didn`t use dumb x86-design. They used the G3, the G4, the G5- which beat the crap out of Pentium 4 in those days.

        And nowadays People say (the developres of Project C.A.R.S. and even the Fast-Racing-Neo-Makers says this) the new Espresso-cpu in the WiiU- ccore by core- even beats a Core 2 Duo-cpu (core by core)- while an AMD Jaguar-cpu is only made for Smartphones/Tablett and thus => cannot even beat a old Amd Athlon cpu in many regards (like bandwith, latency, Overall SIMD-Performance etc).

        Ist just that => developers are lazy today. They want to use SIMD everywhere. Espresso ist not perfect at SIMD (of course not, since ist not designed for that, but still good enough for xbox 360-like-SIMD-performance and sufficient for most games- but is much better cpu in every other regard like bandwith/s (about 60, vs. 20-30 for AMDs Jaguar mobile-cpu), latency (5ns anyone? Google StreetView runs faster on WiiU than on a modern-day-PC, think about it).

        Back to your first sentence:

        Since Sony itself does not any longer make GOOD games (Bloodborne wasn`t made by Sony, but by developer who were HIRED by Sony!)- they have to hire developers and have to “chase down” thirdparties to make games for them.

        And since its far easier to make games for PS4 (Since its not risc), than for WiiU – of course PS4 is getting more games. But you see- getting more games does not mean getting better. The Gameboy was only famous because it had many Advantages over its other handhelds: Better batterylife, more games and simply better games.

        The PS4 however doesn´T have better games. it was NINTENDO to win “the Publisher of the year Price” (for best racing-game, best Action-game (Bayonetta 2) and best Jump n´Run, not Sony or MS. Sony or MS wasn`t even in the top-third-list.

        See? You cannot compare Nintendo with the typical Sony/Ms-games. Nintendo is Special and will hopefully allways be (otherwise the industry is going to Crash). its an undeniable FACT, that Nintendo makes the most QUALITY, that means- games working Day 1 without patches/updates- games. See? it wasn`t Nintendo who made Titanfall, or Assassins Creed Unity, Or Bugfield 4. It wasn`t Nintendo who made Driveclub or other crappy, Buggy games.

        Nintendo made games like Mario Kart 8, Mario 3D World, helped to make Bayonetta 2 (but they of course didn`t help in development, only some decisions were made by them, the development itself was only done by Platinum and Nintendo just gave them a few tips since it was part of the contract), they also helped to achieve the higher lego-City-Quality (thus the lego-Franchise for the first time got much higher average Ratings since => better Quality and thus why its exclusive to Nintendo-platforms)- and they made further games like Pikmin 3, Nintendoland and other high-Quality ones. See? Only very few games of Nintendo are low-quality or 70%-rated like Nintendoland.

        Most of Nintendogames gets Ratings higher than 85%.

        Now look at PS4-side:

        The only REAL PS4-exclusive game it has with Rating higher than 90% is Bloodborne. Thats it. Nothing more. Only Bloodborne. And that wasn´t made by Sony, but by Bend-Studios which was HIRED by sony to make it. See? Sony Bend therefore is a SECOND-Party-Studio.

        The only other PS4-games with higher Rating than 80-85% are:

        -Ports of old PS3-games – lots of Indie-games which you can Play everywhere else, even on Smartphones- and lots of Remakes. But no other real PS4-game except Bloodborne.

        See? Thats why Sony HAS to chase for Thirdparties. Nintendo doesn´t have to do it, cause:

        a) Nintendo gets their own thirdparty-games this gen (like Hyrule Warriors, maybe that Pokken-game, we got Bayonetta 2 and Wonderful 101 and get Devils Third soon, Project Treasure was announced)- and therefore simply doesn`T care about EA & Ubisoft & other big thirdparties anymore.

        b) Nintendo doesn´T Need the Support of Thirdparties since they have their own big games coming. Xenoblade Chronicles X, Starfox, Zelda, Splatoon, Kirby & Joshi.

        See? When did PS4 get the last BIG 2D-Jump n´Run NOT MADE FROM INDIES? You guesed it: It was the worst 2D-Jump n´Run ever made from Sony-Studios- LIttle Big Planet 3. It was crap, rated at 60-65%, just Like Knack at the Launch.

        See? Sony does have to chase down other developers, otherwise no one would buy anymore a playstation. Ist because People buy the Playstation 4 for its Fifa and Call of Duty. Not for its crappy Killzone, Knack, or other mostly crappy real 1st-party-games.

        See my Point? On Nintendos platform WiiU i can choose which Kind of 2D Jump n´Run i like:

        => Do i want Donkey Kong (which is very hard, but still fair and has a cool Music and leveldesign)?

        or do i want to go just for Rayman Legends which is playable on a toaster? Sure Rayman is good, but clearly the good old days are over. No one cares about Rayman that much anymore. Rayman is just => a poor-mans-choice if you don`t care about other jump n´Runs.

        => Or do i want to choose from the other many 2D-Jump n´Run franchises Nintendo has? Sonic? Sure you can go the sonic-way, but the games got worse each gen

        How about Joshi? Or Kirby? Well, if you more like fun-only sidescrollers, but having no hard difficulty thatn thats the way to choose.

        And we also have Mario- the classic one. See?

        Nintendo has sooo many 2D-Jump n´Runs. They even made Metroid 2D a few years ago. Maybe its coming back?

        See? On Nintendos WiiU you have about ~10 big franchises to choose from. Every one differs drastically from the other. While Donkey Kong Country is the hectic game, which is very hard to master, Mario is the more easier and funnier Thing and more classic way to Play since you don`t have to rush through it.

        So- Sonic, Mario, Rayman, Joshi, Kirby, Metroid, soo many 2D-Jump n´Runs to choose from…and the Indies are not counting since they don`t offer the Content of a REAL BIG 2D-Jump n´Run game made by a big Publisher/developer. Indies are mostly 5-Dollar-titles.

        Now look at PS4s-side. Where is something like Mario? You only have stupid Jak & Daxter. And thats it. if you don`t like that => Bac luck finding others. There is no Donkey Kong, no Kirby, no Joshi, no sonic, just countless crappy Indie-games which are mostly also available on a toaster.

        See? Thats called variety. But it isn`t like Nintendos WiiU would be perfect. It lacks in racing-simulators and we only get C.A.R.S. in this genre. But i think- since Wii got nothing of These games- its enough to be glad about it. Nintendo never was about racing-simulators. It was allways about Jump n´Runs, funracing-games and games like Zelda.

You should play the WiiU version as it natively has the updated and better ending choices. I played through to get all three endings.

        Seems you really aren`t a real nintendofan, just another “wannabe”-one. Sorry, dude, but to be a real fan there are many rules you have to follow to. Otherwise you won`t be acceptect as a real fan of that Company.

        You don´t get automatically a fan of a Company just because you buy a console of it. There are millions who bought the Wii- played 5 games of it (in 2 weeks) and then sold the games again. Are those People Nintendofans too? Don`t think so!

        So conclusion is: Yes i do recognize a single frame-drop. I am used to 100-300 fps-gaming not to casual cinematic 25 fps-gaming, Sorry dude. PC , ever heard of it? I played Unreal Tournament on PC in ~2000- with 200 fps. And it was just normal.

        Masseffect 3 wasn`t polished for WiiU. Even rayman Legends- Ubisoft told they didn`t polish the game, as they had no more time left and they simply thought it was good enough as it was and it was necessary to further polish it (they said the used uncompressed textures many times, instead of using compressed ones, which the WiiU was clearly designed for).

And if you count the late launch-window then even the Rayman Legends “Beta” thing, then it finally nails PS4/Xbox Ones lineup. Think about it! PS4s lineup was made of very mediocre/bad titles with only about ~55-60% rating (things like Knack, Killzone SF, Little Big Planet or wasnt it at launch? and other crap). And they didn`t joke about why these games got those ratings. The first good game the PS4 got, was about 6 months after it came out with – Infamous Second Son with about 80%.

        Sony even got SUED for lying about 1080p in Killzone SF. I said no one was joking.
        WiiUs launch-lineup was waaaaaay better- and now its even much better than PS4 + Xbox One combined. All those crappy things those “casuals” hype on PS4/Xbox One, i am going to play in 4K on PC- and we on WiiU-forums laugh about people which make a deal about such little franchises you overhyped! We laugh and put it in Bayonetta 2, the best game of 2014 when it comes to action. See? Theres no point for me to buy such PCs-in-a-small-box. I care about CONSOLES.

        Not about PCs-in-a-smaller-box. I care about having as many cool games as possible.

        I don´t know how much games you plan to buy this year. But for me i plan to buy 20-25 games for WiiU ONLY this year! And the year is alleady 4 months old i allready bought 5 games since December and of course some 3DS-games too! See? Splatoon etc etc- all those games announced are exactly what i want from a CONSOLE dude. And thus why i buy them.

        We get a fantastic RPG, we get a cool Indie-Racing-game which isn`t even possible to run on a modern-day PC (its called FRN, its cpu-engine based with help of WiiUs custom 500 GByte/s eDRAM-powered graphics), we get cool big-franchise-Jump n´Runs (not that Indie-crap you guys have to hype up cause Sony/MS doesn`T make any real big cool Jump n´Runs anymore), we even get a Waverace-kind of game (yes an Indie, but its solid as Sonyfans are also hyping up the many indiegames for PS4 xD).

        Right now- Sony has NOTHING BIG announced coming this autumn/winter- while that Uncharted 4 was delayed. And i doN´t think there will be big surprises for e3 for Sony this year.

        I think Nintendo will deliver again- just like last year. And while the Sonyfans are going to put in that old Bloodborne again with its repetitive missions and cheap design, i will finally enjoy XCX, after that i am going to play another round of MK8, after that i am going to make a nice 60fps-race in FRN (yes they said they are going to show first gameplay THIS summer!)…and after that maybe some nice Indie-Waverace-action.

        But forget about it- that Waverace-game won`T come out elsewhere – its exclusive.

        While Xboxfans will maybe enjoy that Tomb Raider they get. And those other games announced like Fable Legends.

        See? Right now i`m thinking about taking holidays for a year- since i don`T know when to play all those games i am going to buy this year for one console. 30 Games are planned and on my to-buy-list for WiiU. And 20 of them are 100% safe and won`T be cut out and they are BIG franchises. Not small crap.

        The few things which PS4/Xbox One will get which are good (in my eyes) are going to be played on my PC (things like that GTA 5 when its cheaper and Witcher 3 maybe if i have the time left, but i don`t think i will have it).

        And don`t forget- 3DS games and many New 3DS-games are also going to be announced. And there may be some nice surprises on e3 for 3DS/New 3DS that i would also think to buy then. If the announce a good next 3D-Mario for 3DS…hell sure i would buy it. Not saying no to such good games. And thats the problem for me: 30 WiiU-games (just a selection: Splatoon, Devils Third, a few indie-games like FRN and other selected to be considered good ones- and Starfox and Joshi and Kirby and others. Even Bizerta Silent Evil or Fatal Frame 5 will be bought.

        See? 30 console-games in one year? That is overkill in my eyes. You would need to play through one of them in just…1 week. I don`t have that much time ever. And maybe that Zelda will also come back for late winter 2015. Who knows? Nintendo is allways good for surprises. You can be sure about it- Nintendo will deliver this e3. Project treasure is also big YES for me. I like such games.

I Play games like coming Fast Racing Neo, or the right now “Affordable Space Adventures”, not such rpg-cheap-games like Chld of Light.

        Next- Splinter Cell Bl- Well that was also not a good port at all. It was cheap in every regard and as such didn`t sold good.

        Assasssins Creed 4- we all know that Pretendofans like such games. I don`t. Deal with it. I don`t like overhyped Sonyfan-games. I want my own games. And i get them now. You won`t get such games on PS4. Deal with it.

        Nintendo is allready getting much Money again- Sony isn`t. MS doesn`T have to care about Money and the discussion Ends here right? Since theres no Point for Nintendo to Change anything. If Thirdparties don`t want to make games its their own decision. Nintendo doesn`t have to care because they have their own cool games and they have their own thirdparties ready just-around-the-corner (wait for e3, you will be surprised).

        But since I’m having a good day, I’ll explain to you. :)
        Originalbloodace said that the XB1 is only 1 million units ahead of the WiiU and that it’s no big difference, implying the WiiU is doing about as well as the XB1 as far as the sales go. But, he seemed to have forgotten that the XB1 came out a year later, meaning, it managed to sell as much as the WiiU, even though it had a whole year less time, which leads us to the conclusion that the XB1 is doing better than the WiiU, in terms of sales. So I reminded him of that.
        That’s all. :)

      2. Because – so called “Pretendofans” (people which claim to be Nintendo-fans, but they aren`t – they just want Nintendo back like in 1980s thats why they think they are Nintendofans, they are simply stuck in the past ;)- care about them (since N64 was mostly about playing Shooters like Turok and others)- and they think they speak for all true Nfans of modern-days. But they aren`t. They simply are no NIntendofans in my eyes. They couldN`t even answer my questions which sort out trolls and such “Wannabefans” on Miiverse and these things are just there to make sure no idiots are in my friendslist since i don`t want to play with “Wannabefans”, i want to play with people which played all those games on the real console-hardware when i talk to them and i want to talk with people which accept that times do change and with those times, the world also changes and you cannot undo those changes and gaming won`t be the same as in 1980s ever again).

        Btw: And that is also why they wine about the strict RULES they have in Miiverse. Because such “Pretendo”-fans didn`T have a Wii in 2006/2008, they mostly lend it or copied the games and played them illegally on PC via emulator (you can be sure about it)- they simply don`t know anything about modern Nintendo and maybe also had a Xbox 360/PS3 which enabled them to behave like idiots in their “PSN”/Xbox Live-forums. They think about the world is the same since 1980. But it isn`T.

        Those persons will soon have to cope with reality. And the reality will be:
        Thirparties are dying like flies (Konami is the next one to go forever)…Nintendo is going nowhere and still alive since ~110 years (think about it, Sony & MS simply don`T know what is goint to happen with them soon since they simply don`t have that experience which N has since 1983). MS has enough money to buy Sony tomorrow. They have also enough money to survive a possible crash. Nintendo is the same, they have enough money for such situations- and Nintendo allready knows what is going to happen soon not only in japan but worldwide.

        That means: Nintendo is the smart guy in the long run. No one is going to care when EA, Ubisoft or other big ones are gone. The industry won`t crash because of those.

        Indies will become just bigger then. Because that is what right now happens. Konami is going to be Indie soon (at least the leader is going to be, Hideo Koshima or what his name is).

        But CoD is still dying slowly. The trend isn`T going upstairs but downstairs.

        For Tomb Raider they needed 8 mio. units sold for profit. They did only get that after 6 months the game was out. The game nearly wasn`t a success therefore! Think about it!

See the problems rising? And its not only depending on Sony but also EA; Ubisoft and all other thirdparties which lost too many franchises the last 6 months- or made too many mistakes which lead to less profits/no profits at all.

        EA has allready lost two cash-cows this year. EA is on the rise to go bankrupt the next lets say 2-3 years. They lost SimCity, the famous franchise- to an Indie-developer (SimCity is now considered as Dead, no one will ever buy it again)- and Sims 5 is also a no-go now since Sims 4 flopped like it was butter on bread xD

        Well- you see? No one is safe from it. Enough crashes of games => no profit => too less cash to pay the things you need => bankruptcy. Just that easy.

Not what you think stupid making another console- having 5 billion dollars loss for Nintendo (since no one would buy it, because no one would guarantee to make games for it, do you think developers are stupid? they would simply skip it since there is no => userbase of 10 Mio).

        Iwata said- that the NX is going to be some device which enables you to easily play your VC-games on the go. And the advantage is – or should be- that you don`t need to buy 2 versions of your game, its all one version and for the NX.But thats it. Iwata said its not a console. More like a small handheld-device.

        And again- Nintendo would be stuipd as fuck (as they would do the same as SEGA which got bankrupt becasue of this mistake) if they would release another console- with new tech- while the WiiUs tech isn`t even maxed out yet.

        The WiiU is the PS3 of this gen. Having crazy customized tech, which won`t be easy to max out. You have 3 asynchronic cpu-cores and crazy customized fixed shaders and additonal shaders for thirdparties to enable cheap ports. It is never easy to max such a thing out. You need to make games from the scratch to max it out. And those games to make- takes 3 years. Thats why they only come now, and wasn`T out in 2012 when the console came out.

        Consoles never come out with titles like new Zeldas or such big hitters. Its allways the same => some ports of old-gen-games, some remakes, some cheaper new games…and they all do finance the next wave of newer and graphically better games.

        It took Sony and the other developers THREE years to find out how CELL is to be programmed and how to use it as a GPU, because the PS3-GPu was a very bad choice since it was slow and unusable for most games.

        So again: The NX isn`t a console. Stop spreading that bs. You only will be disappointed. WiiU is going to stay if you like it or not. Deal with it.

EA and Ubisoft isnt getting much money right now since their games doesn`T sell good enough (Watchdogs flopped, Rayman Flopped etc)- and their games are too expensive to get much Profit. See? Thats how capitalism goes.

        Right now it means, if EA is doing FIVE another such mistakes they will be wiped from this planet. Amazon, Google etc are all much bigger and RICHER right now than stupid EA.

        ON Wii it was the same!

        Nintendo didn`t care about what Activision did! It was ACTIVISION ALONE which did make those fantastic CoD-games for Wii! They decided on THEIR OWN to make those games. On the N64 it was the same. Nintendo didn`t do anything to help them. The developer came by themselves because it was EASY to develop N64, Gamecube or Wii-games (see? Wii was the ONLY console to support singlecore-cpu, that means => much less developercosts and much easier to program it than a asynchronic three-core-cpu!)

        It wasn`T Nintendo which came to them. And Nintendo also didn`t pay them. You are stupid if you think that is ever going to change. Nintendo just uses different, more advanced hardware- and will allways be- since the next AMD graphics-card gen is going to use HBM which enables them delivering bandwiths of 500 GByte/s in that stacked HBM-ram- the WiiU is having that tech since 2012- see? Nintendo does care about tech- but not just about having to put 1 Million watt into one console. x86 is so …1980s style. No one will use x86 in 10 years from now on. I guess most people on earth will use ARM then since most smartphones will ue ARM till then and smartphone-numbers are growing fast while netbook/tablett/PC are declining fast. And guess what? PowerPc is VERY similar to ARM-cpus you son of the stupid. X86 will be dead in a few years if Intel doesn`T find any solution to further shrink the chips. But right now moores law has ended for Intel in making CPUs. Since they cannot shrink them anymore- and thats also the case for graphic-cards right now. AMD & Nvidia are still using 28nm, since its too expensive to use 14nm right now. 14 nm will come…in 5 years from now maybe for mass-products. Than we will get a small boost. But 5 years from now…? xD Thats no moores law at all.

        that “Skylake” cpus coming are only going to be about ~5-10% faster than Haswell. Big deal. No one is going to exchange its 5 year old-cpu for that expensive Skylake if its only about 15-20% faster since 2011!

        Deal with it. PowerPC is advancing fast (Apple just ditched it to make it cheaper, since x86-chips are simply cheaper and easier to produce too), ARM is advancing fast. X86 is DYING. ARM right now is advancing so fast, that in 5 years from now- they could be able to beat the power of an Core i7 cpu from 2015! Yes, that is no joke. And that is because – moores law for ARM hasn`t ended. Btw: Modern PowerPCs, like WiiUs or in general the ones from IBM use even better caches today than INTEL itself has them. IBM provides its own eDRAM which is used in WiiU, too. Intel doesn`t have fast eDRAM for their own mass-cpus.

        In fact- RISC-cpus are the future of even supercomputrs. Scientists know it. x86 simlpy is unable to communicate efficient with more than- lets say 8-16 cores. Theres amdahls law, if you never heard it => you can only use 8-16 cores efficiently, if its more up => more overhead for each cpu-core => much less performance. Thats why they think DX12 is the solution. But it isn`t. DX12 cannot magically connect 128 cpu-cores on a single die.

        But if you use 1000 risc-cores, put them on a single die and make the chip big enough to fit that many cores on them- each of the cores has a “router”-unit to communicate with others- and if you then use a few of these chips in one rig…you get TFLOPS of computing-power- with just a few Watts wasted (instead of hundreds/thousands watts needed for x86-supercomputing)- and with much less costs for that thing since its => cheaper in general. See?

        Look here thats the thing i speak about:http://www.adapteva.com/parallella/

        And this is just a simple 64-core-version. Soon we will have working 1024-cores on a board.

        So its 90 Gigaflops (about typical performance of a modern-day Core i7) timed 16!

        Yes, this means you will have 90 x 16 = 1.44 Teraflops! In just fucking few watts instead of having to put 1000-cores into racks, each put into a whole cupboard- being a room big etc.

        See? The future isn`T about big supercomputers which draw megawatts of power. Its about having more efficieny, having everything going tiny again, putting many thousand cores into one die- being able to deliver TFlops with just a handful of watts. And ARM-cpus (or risc in general, including PowerPC) is able to put over 1000cores on a die, put them together via routers, let them communicate…giving a performance of 1.44 Teraflops just for the CPU! Think about it- 1.44 Teraflops is nearly the performance the PS4 gets right now in theory…and with its ~150 watt-GPU!

        See? Thats the future my friend. Not wasting 1000 watt for a cpu wated cooled at 5 Ghz alone. Ghz is not everything. The future is about cotes, like they said in 2000/2005. The problem is: X86 isn`t able for core-scaling. The core-scaling for x86 will end with 8-16 cores if not with 8. Thats why Intel hasn`t brought 8-cores for massconsumers allready. Simply because => doesn`t bring much more performance. No game makes use of it. no App uses 8 cores. See? Thats another problem.

        But one last thin you should know before i end my “lesson” her for your amateur-IT-knowledge:

        Moores law will also depend on ARM-cpus or RISC-cpus in general. IN a few centuries from now, ARM-cpus or RISC will also be limited to- lets say 14nm or 10 nm and thats it. Then you cannot shrink them any further. You will have to find new ways…or the IT-advancements are going to decline.

        Thats how it all goes. So better say bye to x86. Because its dying fast. Soon, billions of devices will use tiny arm-cores- and those will be more powerful than Core i7s today.

        Btw: One last thing: Yes, you can allready order such cpus. Costs is about 500 dollars or so, ist cheap. But you have to have good IT-knowledge to make your own use of it. Right now there are no programs which can make good use of it. But the tech is here!

    2. Then you clearly bought the wrong console. You simlpy don`t buy Nintendo-consoles for cheap ass Creed, batman or other shit like that. You can play such games even on smartphones today. What is the sense of playing batman which is hyped like crap (and that is why you can see that Sonyfans aren`t Nintendofans, they use the Word “Hyped”; which nintendofans did never use, bad for you huh?)- which you can play on smartphones too? Smartphones are more powerful than you think. You can literally play everything on such mobile devices today.

    Like

    1. It isn`t like that in Mario Kart 8, since 720p with 60 fps on the TV- plus another 480p is just too much for a console to handle. Not with this graphics. You either would have to kiss the fluid 60 fps goodbye (that means hello 30 fps for both TV AND Gamepad) or you would have drastically downgraded graphics. Thats how it goes. No magic. Just logic. And remember:

      This is just considering about graphics! What if the cpu is allready limiting? It would be even more heavier for the cpu and thus you might only get 25 fps (maybe) instead of 30 fps. Who knows? Just theory!

      Sonic Racing has the feature because the graphics are simple, the game doesn`T run with 60 fps and many limiting things are in this sonic-racing game. Just that simple.

        That means => Xbox and playtstation target grown-ups, but in fact 80% of the People there are just Little Teenagers and even children of just 8-12 years.

        While People for WiiU get the real mature games- even if Nintendo aims for children. You think mature guys Play CoD all day? hahahaha- let me laugh about you. No, my Little friend. Mature People have their lifes after them, the childhood is gone. They don`t Need shooters 24/7. They Play things like chess or other more casual-styled games. Only if your dumb and you never learned to stop playing such games and/or if your gaming-behaviour hasn`t changed yet, you still aim for shooters 24/7.

        And yes, i decide for Nintendo, since i don`t want to have people like you on my platform. See? I mean people in form of “just a wannabefan” or just a Teenager, screaming into the Micro. I don`t care about such things. I just ignore such peoplee. And since PSN is full of such idiots like you- you will never find my there. And Xbox Live is also full of junk-eating People, screaming into the Micro. See? I don`t have to care, because it doesn´T happen in my community. Deal with it, no one of the real Nintendofans wants to have anything to do with you.

        And ist fact- PS4 is the new casual-console of this gen. You won´t find such games like on WiiU there. And yes, i also do have a PC to play the good multigames you sonyfans do Hype up to heaven- such as GTA 5 or Witcher 3. And if these fail i simply would ignore them. I don`t have a PC for playing only. I am also working with it,, my friend. See? Ever heard of the word “work”?

        I know that most Sonyfans don`t know what the word “work” means, they think that LetsPlay-videos are real work today. Wow. how amazing. So automatically you fans are telling me a Football-star getting 5 Million Dollar per year for ist real hard work is comparable with….a fucking youtuber, doing some Videos and getting the same Money per year?

      1. And…? Thats why you buy more games first, not after 5 years when ist in the bargain-bin for ~5 Dollars- gaming isn`t about playing 100 bad games for each 5 Dollars in a year- ist about buying 1-2 games per month- having about 20 per year (and that is much!)- andt hose are really gems, not bargain-budget-crap. Good games are having good Prices. Thats how it goes. seems you cannot deal with that fact? Also think about it: WiiU-games are much cheaper in average than PS4/Xbox One games. There is NO game on WiiU to cost 70 Dollars or more. Most even cost still 40-50 Dollars. But if we include the DLC, the calculation for Nintendos games is even far better. Call of Duty plus 5 DLCs á each 10 Dollars = 120 Dollars. What does Splatoon cost? 40 Dollars? Plus 3x 12 Dollars for the Amiibos…yeah you can truly see the difference there. And Devils Third won`t have DLC and will have the Content of TWO fullprice-games- and will cost only – you guessed it- between 55-60 Dollars.

    I liked the original Xbox, it was the 2nd system I got in the 2000’s after the Cube. I tolerated the 360, but wasn’t really a huge fan. When Microdicks pulled their asshatry and tried to require the Xbone to be online all the time and not allow the resell of pre-owned games, I was done with them, I lost any kind of respect I might have had for their systems.
    Thank god they at least changed their policy after the backlash and now I have seen a couple games I would like to play for the Bone (like Killer Instinct, Dead Rising 3, State of Decay and whatever Rare is working on), but I will not even consider buying their console until they do a 2nd model or at least remove the requirement to go online to download the patch to play offline (obviously it wouldn’t be a problem for me to get the patch, but its the principle of it) and even then out of spite I would probably just pick up the console pre-owned from somewhere.

    I’m done with PC gaming, Steam ruined it for me. I still play some WoW and I am constantly picking up older PC games to play, but as far as PC gaming is concerned, I pretty much view it like an Atari 2600 or other older system, I can still buy old games for it, but I probably wont ever play anything new on it.
