This basically goes along very well with my comments about PC graphical prowess. PC's have always been technically superior. Most of my issues that led me to go to other systems from Nintendo had to with availability of the games I wanted, though after awhile Wii games made my eyes hurt of my 46 inch tv due to the blurriness. Wii U is HD now so it wouldn't be an issue. Some other Third Party devs should take a chance on it with their stronger games, they might actually drive the sales higher by doing it. Just a thought.

Apples and oranges to me and this is nothing new, the argument goes back pretty much to the first home computers. It's also a question of system resources and what is being utilized in the system. Consoles are made specifically for gaming and use resources to that end more efficiently most times. This seems like an "I want attention" article.

@jd7904 @robchiang1990 As anyone playing games between 84-86 can attest to this. Most gamers were gravitating towards Apple and C-64 for awhile....until NES took hold.

@emptycow718 Your point is correct but only halfway. Savvy marketing and the NES's success DID revive the industry. Those of us who had Atari and Coleco as kids and teens can attest to that. YES, the Master was TECHNICALLY better, and big N's policies made it very difficult for Sega to get a good foothold but the NES kicked up interest for many who would otherwise not necessarily touch videogames at that point. And they made gaming COOL, something many other before failed at.

RIP Yamauchi-san. You gave many of us great experiences in out free time. Regardless of how we see Nintendo now, they revitalized the entire industry back in the mid 80's. I shudder to think where videogaming would be now if not for him.

After some thought I think this was a good move. Many parents who would buy this for their kids probably wouldn't necessarily allow them free access to go online with it but would go to a retail store to purchase games for them, I would guess these are who they'd have in mind in targeting the retail market for shelf space. BTW I never played the original but I thought it was a decent game and kinda shows me what a remastered Ghosts N Goblins/Ghouls N Ghosts would look like, Disney-esque art would be greatly suited for a remake of those games.

@jd7904 @topherlee94 Oh sorry, I thought that was a reference to me. When my parents first bought me an Atari, they would only connect it to an old BW TV, but then they wanted to play so it went on the big 19 inch Sony after a few days. I lasted a whole year before I wanted a Colecovision.

@BamaGoatt easy with the old man thing though The years may be there but I'm still pretty young. I thank my gaming and other entertainment endeavors for keeping me there :)
