One target in vegas is getting 156, which is why that's where I'm heading to at 4AM tomorrow morning.

If it wasn't for the fact that I didn't have a drivers license, I would be there right now -_-

So who's camping out/getting there extremely early for their Wii?

*************Tie's Launch Goodness Line-up*************


Near 1st: XBOX360

Game Pros: Higher mean, more games,
Game Cons: sh*tty ports, not very original games
Console Pluses: Graphics, cool look, Xbox Live, Live Arcade, Guide/Dashboard integration, demos, plays MP3 players, connects to PC, music at all times, friends list, achievement points, games list, game invites, chat, customizable interface, Avatars, marketplace, player feedback, can survive roll-over collisions (http://www.joystiq.com/2006/11/18/360-survives-hit-and-run-accident/)
Console Troubles: Rarity at launch, breaking consoles, scratched games, Xbox Live price, sound, smallish HDD, not enough backwards compatibility (30-40%), "PWR blok!!!!11", no in-game 1080p support

Tied 2nd: PS3

Game Pros: Resistance, graphics
Game Cons: Some lack-luster exclusives, 4 of the good games are sports games, 5 are ports [including sports games], a few of the games suck hardcore
Console Pluses:Graphics, Free multiplayer, online browsing, Linux, glossy, 99% backwards compatibility, larger HDD, 1080p support, tilt, menu button thingy
Console Troubles: Price, many of the hyped games sucked, stole Guide button and tilt sensitivity, huge size, multiplayer can't hold a candle to XBL, no mic included, can't connect to PC or MP3 players, expensive features that most consumers won't really use (paying for technology you don't need), no 1080i support,<-(?) little marketplace, no rumble, no replaceable batteries, extremely limited, Killzone 2 sham

Tied 2rd: Wii

Game Pros: Zelda FTW! *Not all reviews in yet*
Game Cons: Future looks grim *Not all reviews in yet*
Console Pluses: Controller is pretty revolutionary, cheap price, Avatars, family friendly, backwards compatibility, download old school games, market place, small size, cool look
Console Troubles: Controller is reportedly a little less awesome then expected, gimmicky feeling, wonky in some games, not as universally friendly/compatible as 360, little (or no?) real mulitplayer, controller speaker is buggy and cheap sounding (see Zelda video review), graphics really do matter- no matter which way you look at it.


More later (maybe)

**************

Err... Disclaimers?:

*=You may be thinking "They gave it higher because they had comparatively awesome graphics",
but remember, a lot of the games were Last-Gen games with new coats of paint,
not in essence completely next-gen. Kind of a leveler.

**=Console exclusive.

***=Not used, lol.

Gamespot sucks. Honestly, their scores for the Wii will always be on the low side because of their ranking system which averages the different scores a game get (graphics, sound, etc.).

I don't really have much interest in reviews anyways, I like to make my own mind and try the games for myself, this is the best way to know if a game is good on not. Or I try to get opinions from as many sources as possible, And generally, Gamespot either loves ot hate a game and bash it to death, calling them mediocre or abysmal. Not to mention their website is FUBAR for some reason.

I do because it is an easy sight to read. IGN is cluttered with garbage I could give less of a crap about, and some games just get waaaaaaaay too high of a score, like Black. Black?! You gotta be kidding me. That game is fun for about a half hour until you realize you are half way through the damn thing already and you never even reached one checkpoint. I have to read this stuff because with all the crap that has come out this month alone it is damn near impossible for me to keep up with all of it, because customers ask me day in and day out wether something is good or not. I don't always agree with Gamespot either, last year they trashed on The Punisher, and Serious Sam 2, and I adored them. However, it IS an easy sight to use to get the info I need on games to keep my customers informed because most of them are too damn lazy to use teh interweb, and the rest of them are under the impression that all we do at Gamestop is stand around and play video games all day. Silly bastards... :mad:

This might sound egoist, but I'm actually glad I'm not the only one who couldn't get one, now we can be pissed together :p

Besides, I actually have plenty of things to do, so not getting a Wii right now is probably a good thing, kinda... I'd rather be playing some Zelda on my shiny new Wii ! Well as long as I get one before Christmas, I'll be a happy man.

Yeah, I feel that, too. They gave Splinter Cell 3 a score of 8.6, when other sites gave it mid-high nines. It's also one of my most favorite games ever.

Seems like the editors can spend too much time on the bad things, not giving enough credit to the good things. But meh.

79% mean with the lowest 75.5%, now i dont know that much maths but to me that means the majority of games are .... crap.


Seriously don't read too much into review scores, its more about the information regarding overall gameplay rather than whether sound is a 8.5 or 9.

Try reading the article. It's bullcrap.

As shown in this vid, the fatlards have no idea how to use the thing. From several videos their disdain for the Wii is very apparant.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfBrPCWb9pg

The main bad points in the review, why it was undeserving of +9, was that it was bring zelda elements back. Not revolutionary enough. While 'Gears of War' is the damn revolution itself according to him:

Gears of War is all about ducking, covering, and blasting your enemies whenever they give you an opening.
Holy **** that's new.

You know you're dealing with idiots when the points they bash on are praised by all other sites (because it IS zelda).

You do NOT review a game of a series which promised to bring old gameplay elements back and complain they bring them back. It is as if I'd review an FPS and whine about all the shooting.

"Zelda is bad because its 'too Zelda' ". Thats what bothering us.

Obviously using the wiimote is a different skill to button-coordination that most gamers are used to. It seems like this douche just isnt that coordinated with anything more than his fingers and thus complains about the poor gameplay because of it.

Wii is 10% of 360 sales in 2 days ... sweet
Estimates, estimates.
It basically just takes time and research to estimate the numbers as closely as possible.

What I have done is gotten charts of monthly sales for the past few years, and figured out certain trends. Then I have gotten past sales data and estimated the pace at which the consoles will sell. After I have the estimate and the counter running, I just watch out for anny official announcements, and adjust anything accordingly.

The site has been up since early July, and I haven't had to adjust the sales for the Xbox 360 since then. So far my estimation method has been pretty much right on. Now for the new consoles it is a little harder since there is no previous sales data to go off of. What I do for these is research how many they are expecting to have on launch and by the end of the year. For the launch counter I get it to around the number expected, and then I slow it down to pace it so that it will reach a good estimate for the end of the year, and as usual I will adjust anything if any official word comes in.

Not really going to pay much attention to those numbers for now :p



I'm worried now. Apparantly the shop where I pre-ordered has a list, not sure which number I am now. Probably somewhere in +50 at least. Some other pals from a forum mailed to Nintendo Benelux and shop in order to get some more info on the launch.

i'm going to die if I don't get zelda at a reasonable time before my exams.
