System Wars / Re: Nintendo Switch is 7 years...

Quote from: Goukosan on March 03, 2024, 02:18:13 PMPS2 sold for $99 and served the DVD movie player market at the time DVDs were the new hot thing and you could get a PS2 for cheaper than a stand alone DVD player.

Sony including the DVD player function into the PS2 at launch was genius and it made it an Uber mass market device.

Just as Nintendo engineering a hybrid that knocks the functionality out the park from day 1 was also genius and a Uber mass market concept.
DVDs weren't the hot new thing anymore by the time the PS2 reached that price point though.  There were already tons of dirt cheap DVD players on the market by then.  Yes, it was a genius move, as was Nintendo making their console a hybrid... and in both cases their extreme success can be attributed to serving additional markets outside of the traditional console market.  I'd still put Switch at having more of an advantage, as Nintendo was already the established Handheld market leader and had big inroads into that market.

Still, it's important to remember there are far more gamers now than there was back then.. and $99 back then is still around $150 today.. which puts it close enough to the Switch Lite's price to where it's not really a matter of "accessibility".

Quote from: Remij on March 02, 2024, 07:07:49 PMWill outsell the PS2... but the PS2 only served the console market.. not the handheld+console market like Switch does.  And considering the amount of gamers back then compared to what they are now... the PS2 is still the most dominant console of all time.

That's not to take away from the Switch's success however.. it's definitely a beast.. but I'm just sayin.

Yup this forum has its share of weird cunts and they wonder why we're selective over who we share information with.

These are the days where harassment campaigns to ruin peoples lives are common, even swatting.

I really think Jon can be riled up to the point he would try to get someone fired or even swat someone because they made fun of Xbox.

Quote from: Remij on March 03, 2024, 12:54:19 AMbubu people play games :cries:

No you don't need to come to SW to make sure everyone knows it... just like you don't need to come to SW and cry and bitch about Xbox every time.. :drake:

The dude that plays games, will ALWAYS have more of say than the dude who doesn't.. get fucking real dude.  You think you're going to come here, not ever talk about playing the PS5 games you claim are so much better... and then talk down to people who are actually playing the games they like... you've got another thing coming.  That's why profiles get posted... because fucks who don't ever talk about playing games act like the judges of what's good and not here.. and that shit ain't flying unanswered reg:

That's EXACTLY what Jerry, and other cows have done to us, and demanded of us in the past... which is why it's being thrown back in your faces now.  They're GAMING profiles dude, not fucking house addresses...  You're LITERALLY in a thread asking Lems to post what they're playing.. and nobody is taking it seriously because we already know the person who made it never talks about play games.  It's that simple.  Move on... maybe try playing something for once? :shrug:
No, you clearly have no idea of the history here.

We have all shared gaming profiles in the past. XBL/PSN/PC, but Jon gets weird about it. He ain't right. He also stalks the "what are you plaging thread and keeps notes and tries to twist things :D as if the person who has spent a decade surviving on games like State of Decay 3, Crackdown 3 and Bleeding Edge has any fucking authority on what people can play :rofl:

So the reason we dont post is because its fun to watch the likes of sloooww jonny and Ghostz squirm and beg and demand to see our profiles every month. None of us will be answering to the likes of those retards. Also we have posted before, and as explained Jon gets weird about it. He's a legit psycho man, stalks people online because they made fun of Xbox. As for Ghostz....well just look at how he is with Jerry. :reg: I get it Jerry can be obnoxious at times but come on man there's a limit to how far someone should take it. It says more about Ghostz imo.

If we were trying to actually hide none of us would have ever added people from systemwars onto our friends list.

He wasn't even talking to me dumbass... and I've not ever looked at your shitty Twitter account since that day lmfao... jesus christ.  What I did see when I DID look at it, was some of the most pathetic shit I've ever seen in my entire life.  And I DID run into your account on accident.  Blame it on how much of a pathetic PS fanboy you are :shrug:

Quote from: Twinblade on March 03, 2024, 03:10:26 AMJust got to the 2nd region in Rebirth. Some of these vistas are simply incredible looking. As long as you're not looking at the textures up close, the environments are stunning (in graphics mode ofc. Performance mode is a mess).
Good news might be on the way for you.. apparently they're still working on improving the game's visuals in performance mode.. as well as some of the lighting issues in the game. 

https://noisypixel.net/final-fantasy-vii-rebirth-performance-mode-visual-update-confirmed/

QuoteWe've received a lot of feedback on whether the graphics in the performance mode will be improved or not. We hear you, and we are currently working on an update patch to improve that aspect. I don't think the release date would be far away from now.
We have heard from players that in certain situations, the facial lighting makes some character shadows look very scary. So that's one part of the update that we are working on.

Good to hear they're still looking at it.  But yea, some of those textures are just terrible.  PS5 is capable of much better.. look at Horizon Forbidden West lol.  They could improve the texture quality I'm sure.

Tl;dr: Kill yourself.

Quote from: David P on March 03, 2024, 05:28:03 AMIt's terrible. Joys cons has to be one of the worst controller of all time.
Absolutely is. The Pro controller is just an automatic buy and that pretty much ends the portability of the system. Joy-cons :puke:
