I think that Nintendo is just waiting for Microsoft to announce when Halo 3 comes out and then Nintendo will announce that SSBB and Mario Galaxy comes out in the same month just for defence against Microsoft and there huge game. Thats what Microsoft did with gears of war. They released it a week before Wii and PS3 came out.

Nintendo just doesn't want a bunch of Nintendo fans to go buy a 360 for Halo 3 and forget all about the Wii. But if Nintendo sets free one of their big games then it will prevent a huge loss of fans.

Am I right?

I don't think they're concerned with that.

I do not think any one game on any console this year or next year will compete against Halo 3
#5 Posted by -1gamemaster1- (377 posts) -
No, Nintendo just has not predicted when they are going to be done. The game is not even finished yet. It is not like Halo 3 is waiting for SSBB or visa versa. I understand that they are going to be two games that will strike competition.

Nintendo will probably wait till Halo 3 sells its millions before they release a huge Wii title. If they release it at the same time, they will be fighting for sales. But after, Nintendo will have the average gamer's full attention when they release Mario Galaxy and SSB: Brawl.

Anyone who isn't an idiot knows that Halo 3 will trumph any game in sales in the month it's released. It'd be safe Galaxy came out by October (pressuming Halo 3 comes out November) with Brawl coming early December. Optusnet

You think that the lack of info we know means that nintendo must know bugger all too? They've most likely given Sora a target release date (whatever that may be). Heck for all we know, Nintendo executives have already planned Kid Icarus 2 as Q1 2008 and has been in development for a year. Nintendo keeps its more long-term plans within a smaller group of people. And Halo 3 will most likely be here around Q4 this year anyway so Nintendo will have to work around that. No matter what audience or gamer they're targeting, Halo 3 will soak up and overpower any media hype that goes to any other game.

You are obviously just going against SSBB. (http://www.1up.com/do/gameOverview?cId=3141681#Scene_2) here is 1up saying June 1st, here is (http://www.wiichat.com/nintendo-wii-gaming/15080-official-ssbb-release-date.html) wiichat, all saying June 1st. There is evidence. Where is your evidence?

I'll crap my pants if it comes that early. They've released such little info on such a big game for it to release Q2. Expect Brawl to be present at E3.

I don't think Mario and SSBB would be able to compete with Halothegame458

SSBM  sold almost as much as  Halo 2 did... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_best_selling_computer_and_video_games#Xbox

All Ninty needs is the right hype for SSBB..People seem to give Halo way way too much credit, Halo didnt even touch GTA:san andreas or GTA:vice city for that matter in sales..In fact Halo1 + Halo2 sales = GTA:san andreas alone....Halo is big, but people seem to act like its some untouchable thing...i cant wait for it to come out...Hopefully it clashes with SSBB...

LoZ and Mario are highly reputable franchises in the industry so I should not have posted something like that without thinking twice, I totally forgot about Mario Galaxy. I just thought that way because I am reminded of the reception that Halo 2 got on its launch day (2.5 million copies sold in 24 hours), it was a momumental thing for microsoft since they launched Windows 95. With that and the fact that XBOX360 is doing much better than the XBOX, and the billions of matches still being played on XBL, the launch for Halo 3 is going to get scary.

And what evidence are you giving me? An estimate for 1up as a tentative release date?? Nothing I'm saying is ridiculous. Nintendo knows secrets and release dates we don't. This isn't fact, this is common sense.
Interviewer: "So when's Galaxy coming out, Reggie?"
Reggie: "Your guess is as good as mine!" :|

A good example is the 'Wii' name. Only a handful of execs knew the name prior to April because if they said it to any regular employee, they would blurt it out in an instant through the glorious internet. This was said by Nintendo!

The point is. Nintendo is playing dumb with Brawl's release date and they sure as hell know about the behamoth that is 'Halo 3'.

I agree ninty knows what they're doing. If we've already thought about the "behamoht that is 'Halo 3'" they've surely thought about it way b4. And there really isn't anyway to know when any of these games are coming out considering how often release dates change but i do  think, however, that june/july is possible for SSBB...and yes they definitly are playing dumb...

hey idiot, remember the whole Wii60 thing? i play Halo quite alot, and own a wii and play it regularly. Plus all us sony fans arent as senseless, i think im one of 5 people who bought Psychonauts, and just because someone plays a different console than you do, probably because your just too afraid to admit that it might be a better experince,  doesnt mean they don't have souls like you self proclaimed "Saints of Nintendo" seem to sure as hell have

no offense to you Wintry, you are the only one on this board that can make a valid point without making it sound like a 10 year old trying to get some bloodlust.

Way to go! Way to speak up 4 urself and others buddy! I was thinking it but you surely said it...

#35 Posted by FPSjohn (993 posts) -
In my opinion, people who play halo are generaly people with bland and lakiluster lives. That or they do not know how to live. The smart ones really know that video games are not life but a small source of entertainment.

Of course Halo 3 isn't aiming for a date, it'll just be plonked in the middle of summer - 4 months after the beta release. Makes sense :roll: You do know Halo 3 is coming this year, right?

No, Nintendo doesn't need to do that . They just wait until the games are ready . Wii has NO competition .

And what evidence are you giving me? An estimate for 1up as a tentative release date?? Nothing I'm saying is ridiculous. Nintendo knows secrets and release dates we don't. This isn't fact, this is common sense.
Interviewer: "So when's Galaxy coming out, Reggie?"
Reggie: "Your guess is as good as mine!" :|

A good example is the 'Wii' name. Only a handful of execs knew the name prior to April because if they said it to any regular employee, they would blurt it out in an instant through the glorious internet. This was said by Nintendo!

The point is. Nintendo is playing dumb with Brawl's release date and they sure as hell know about the behamoth that is 'Halo 3'.

These are just guesses or estimates. I think I spreak for most people when I say: "I'll wait for an official Nintendo source to confirm the release date."

You keep hyping as June 1. Go for your life. But don't be suprised if it's another 6 month wait after that....

Dude, check 1up, it says it was not confirmed, but they are aiming around there. Also, at least I HAVE EVIDENCE. AND, Halo is not even aiming for a date yet, soooooooooooo....

Of course Halo 3 isn't aiming for a date, it'll just be plonked in the middle of summer - 4 months after the beta release. Makes sense :roll: You do know Halo 3 is coming this year, right?

Don't roll your eyes, you don't know what your talking about.

In my opinion, people who play halo are generaly people with bland and lakiluster lives. That or they do not know how to live. The smart ones really know that video games are not life but a small source of entertainment.FPSjohn


You could say that with people who play MMORPG for the purpose to escape reality. There are people who play one game all the time to become more competitive, with all these tournaments out there there is a lot at stake for some people to play Halo competitively.

The only thing they need to go up against Halo is Smash Bros. People discount Smash Bros but Melee sold 6 million copies, only 2 million less than Halo 2 and a million more than the original Halo. Smash Bros has legs and can go head to head with Halo when it comes to selling systems. People some how think Halo was a godly game that cannot be beaten but It wasn't even close to being the best selling game of last generation, it's popularity is very high but very overrated aswell.

Sorry to all those people out there, but I don't think Halo will absolutlely crush SSBB and Galaxy, as these games are just as big, Halo is just too hyped up.

huh.. i dunno, that sounds pretty accurate.

I think that Nintendo is just waiting for Microsoft to announce when Halo 3 comes out and then Nintendo will announce that SSBB and Mario Galaxy comes out in the same month just for defence against Microsoft and there huge game. Thats what Microsoft did with gears of war. They released it a week before Wii and PS3 came out.

Nintendo just doesn't want a bunch of Nintendo fans to go buy a 360 for Halo 3 and forget all about the Wii. But if Nintendo sets free one of their big games then it will prevent a huge loss of fans.

Am I right?

I don't think so. Nintendo wouldn't do that because they said they weren't part of the "Nex gen wars."

[QUOTE="thegame458"]I don't think Mario and SSBB would be able to compete with Halo-1gamemaster1-
WHY? Please give evidence.

there is no evidence, it is just plain old marketing. halo has many hardcore gamer support and a lot of publicity. With all the hype of halo 3, do you think ssbb will lead in sales- probably if they are released different months. However if Nintendo has online play by that time, then we got some good competition. Publicity is a lot in gaming though because when you think about it, how many people got the wii mainly due to publicity

I don't think they're concerned with that.Viewtiful-GaMeR
actually, that's a really good, point and i most dis agree with you, it would be in their best interest to launch it when or a week before, the the biggest game ever will be coming, but what if microsoft is waiting too? but to be honest
I do not think any one game on any console this year or next year will compete against Halo 3

i think so too, halo 2 had such a big success that god knows what halo 3 will do to the people?

Smash Brothers isn't a system seller in comparison because it mainly appeals to Ninty fans. Anyone can look at Halo and think ''hey I need a 360''.

[QUOTE="-1gamemaster1-"][QUOTE="Optusnet"]Anyone who isn't an idiot knows that Halo 3 will trumph any game in sales in the month it's released. It'd be safe Galaxy came out by October (pressuming Halo 3 comes out November) with Brawl coming early December. -1gamemaster1-

Ok, if you are going to post something, please make sure you have your information straight. I said thatNintendo just has not predicted when they are going to be done. The game is not even finished yet. It is not like Halo 3 is waiting for SSBB or visa versa. I understand that they are going to be two games that will strike competition.

You think that the lack of info we know means that nintendo must know bugger all too? They've most likely given Sora a target release date (whatever that may be). Heck for all we know, Nintendo executives have already planned Kid Icarus 2 as Q1 2008 and has been in development for a year. Nintendo keeps its more long-term plans within a smaller group of people. And Halo 3 will most likely be here around Q4 this year anyway so Nintendo will have to work around that. No matter what audience or gamer they're targeting, Halo 3 will soak up and overpower any media hype that goes to any other game.

What? :| I know what I'm talking about. Halo 3 will come in Q4 of 2007 because it's already been confirmed for 2007 and it'll follow trend with Halo 2 and try to aim for a big holiday seller. There - I understood exactly what I said.
