>Nearly identical OEM controllers that will last until the end of the world

It is normie food, but they ate it up. Anyone with a modded wii had no need for any part of it except possibly the controllers. The PSX mini got poor reviews, had shit games and the classic digital controller. If it had gotten better hardware reviews, it may have done better. Nintendo fans will buy recycled cardboard because it is officially licensed, and that is a good way to help understand it. A n64 mini will be an absolute top seller. Sony dropped the ball big time, and though it was a good idea, everything they did needed some improvements.
>Switch was the top selling game system of 2018
I don't believe it either, but I can't find anything disputing it. I am indifferent to the console wars even in 2019, but it seems that Nintendo is doing something right, no matter how dumb their shit seems. Someday when I get a HD tv, I may buy one just to mod it and play my games again without all the bullshit upscalers and converters.

Used on Ebay would be your best bet. However, you could get a controller adapter and use dual shock on your PC and it may be better overall. I have had pic related for years, and never had any trouble. I only played one game with it, but it was somewhat worth the price.

He's not completely wrong, the 5th gen was to the 6th gen what the 3rd gen was to the 4th.

They have 20ish games on the virtual console that would sell to normies and nintendrones quite easily. Out of the less than 400 game library, this is the cream of the crop of 1st party games.
Obviously for anyone who has been around and soft modded a system in the last 8+ years this is irrelevant, but hipsters love their shelf decorations. The same people that bought the SNES & NES classics would buy the N64 mini.

However, the appeal of adding roms to it would not be there as I would think it be next to impossible to do, similar to "injecting" roms just to get them to run on VC games. The best way to play N64 games has been and will continue to be on the N64 with a flash cart.

I wouldn't say Sony is a bad company but I also wouldn't say their hardware is top notch. Their best designed product ever is probably the Vita. The PSX was designed for the SNES originally and the final product features a lot of design limitations that just looks like an upgraded SNES (like slapping on a co-processor that just serves as a frame buffer). Later Kutaragi designs were over-engineered messes built purely for theoretical max processing power at an extreme expense to real-world performance. Then the PS4 basically just used home theatre PC parts cause Ken was gone.

Well part of that also is that Sony never really developed the brand identity that Nintendo did. Nintendo picked that shit up from Disney back when they sold playing cards. The realization was that if you have a strong brand identity, with popular recognizable characters that are all strongly associated with your company, then people will gravitate to your characters, all of them, simply by merit of their shared owner. It works for Mickey and Bambi, and it works for Mario and Link. That's a big part of why Nintendo is so protective of their brand and of their characters, they realize that people put as much if not more stock in the characters and franchises than they do in the actual games themselves, and they feel that they have to maintain a strong and consistent quality to their representation.

Meanwhile, Sony basically has all hired guns. Their recognizable characters are for the most part tied up in other companies, and they've never played hardball with those characters being Sony exclusives. This is obvious when you look at something like Playstation All-Stars Battle. The game is missing very obvious fan favorites from playstation history, and yet it has blatant padding despite only having about 20 characters. Sony is the reliable workhorse for devs who want to stay afloat and stay independent, but if sony wasn't around, then it's not as if tons of iconic characters would suddenly be in limbo, they'd just bandwagon onto the next best offering. You can say what you want about Nintendo's handling of things, but they have done a good job at uniting their various series and characters into a strong brand image.

I don't see the counter-argument of your post. I never said that Nintendo's policy here was always a good one. Nintendo's lack of third party past the Super Famicom is a weakness in their console's appeal, without a doubt, but that lack of third party support only proves to exemplify how strong their brand image really is, given that they've basically survived for 20 years now off of their own products alone. Put Sony in the same position (all first party, almost no third party) and they'd be much worse off than Nintendo.

I get that you wanted to turn this into some kind of consolewar shitpost, but you actually just backed up my point, so you really achieved the opposite of your goal. I hope that you practice more and apply yourself, and that your shitposting game improves with time. Until then please read the image posted.

The PS1 classic's problem actually lies with the success of the PS1 itself. The PS1 had extremely varied games, which makes a compilation much harder to pull off. People who liked MGS won't necessarily like Crash Bandicoot, and so on. The N64 had a limited selection of games, but that would mean the N64 classic would have a much more consistent lineup of games. Notice how people keep talking about the same 10 games for the 64?

I'm sure some idiots who are new to scalping might have got burned, but if any scalpers with half a brain saw that this thing had zero hype, they wouldn't have tried it in the first place. During its release week, I did notice a few were showing up on kijiji, and people were asking anywhere between $200-$300 CAD. (retail was $130 cad plus tax). And by the friday of that week they were already being heavily discounted by the scalpers or they might have just returned them to stores anyway.

Maybe Sony’s but MS makes a vastly superior product with a lot more value than Sony and has for years. They had some missteps with the xbone but they quickly reacted and corrected those. At any rate yeah Nintendo just made a vastly superior product to the PS classic. Including Star fox 2 was incredible and they had a nice full lineup of games people actually wanted and don’t half bake their console like Sony did. When the N64 mini comes out it’s gonna sell like hot cakes and most likely be on the same hardware as the Snes and Nes mini.

>> No.5338710

I think they just needed some field testing with their predicted demographic. Everyone's complaint lies in the game selection being subpar, which is funny cause the ps1 has a massive library of amazing games, it definitely dwarfs n64 or I'd even argue SNES with just how many fantastic games they have in their library. Maybe they didnt think filling the library with the same genre was a good call (being jrpgs), but the ps1 is up there with the SNES with how many incredible RPGs it has. Even avoiding those theres just so many games to choose from they must've had one guy with shit taste to pick all the American batch, and they should have tested those games with more people before deciding that was the final batch and shipping it.

>> No.5338765

The controller is fine. Hardware wise there's not really anything wrong with it, but they did a piss poor, slapdash implementation of PCSX, and more importantly the game selection is absolute garbage. Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy VII, Oddworld, Rayman, Wild Arms, Super Puzzle Fighter 2, Tekken 3 and Ridge Racer 4 are the only games in the lineup that I would actually consider classics, so that means that you have 8 classic games and 13 pieces of shovelware. 20 games is already too skimpy, but when less than half of those are actually classics, you couldn't give the thing away, let alone charge $100 for it.

If they had included say, 30 or 40 games and none of it was shovelware, I'd say it would definitely be worth $100. I have almost 70 games on my hacked one and I am buying a bigger flash drive because I want room for even more. The Playstation has one of the best libraries of all time, and it is painfully obvious that the games that Sony chose were that neither they or their third party partners expected to make money off of (with a few exceptions).

I would say, now is the time to buy one if you want to use Bleemsync. No price would be low enough for such a pitiful game selection, but as a piece of hardware I definitely enjoy using mine for PS1 games, and with some help from the Retroarch version of PCSX almost all games run fine on it now, and look much better thanks to turning on integer scaling and disabling bilinear filtering. I am planning to mod mine to store the flash drive internelly eventually to give the appearance of a totally stock unit.

Woah hold on there. You are wrong automatically if you think Resident Evil isn't a classic. That game will always be a classic. One of the best of all time and I've played it numerous times. I think the biggest single issue is the poor emulation. The second huge issue is the lack of quantity. This could have been Sony's opportunity to seriously one up Nintendo and not only give people a good mini console but also one that blows out Nintendo as far as amount of games. In my opinion 50 would have been a perfect amount of games but yes I guess that isn't "realistic" according to this shitty industry.

You're still right about there being too many shovelware or forgettable games. I get that Intelligent Cube is supposedly a good underrated gem but these mini consoles should always be assuring the best selling and most iconic games get on first and foremost because the main selling point of them will always be nostalgia. Then you even have certain franchises getting represented but not the best one in a series like Twisted Metal, which should have been 2 included. Sony is just simply garbage at nostalgia stuff. They aren't Nintendo here. Even if they had the most honest of intentions (which they certainly did not) they would have fucked something up in some way due to them not really even having a real history as far as iconic great game exclusive franchises of the past. That is Nintendo's strength, not Sony.

Just would like to finish off that I really wish this thing was great because I seriously wanted one had it had a better selection of games and emulation.

Superior to what? Their best days are behind them. M$ and Sony are both selling nothing more than a closed source mini-gaming pc/tv box. How many "exclusive" titles on each system are worth thinking about? Is that really worth the price for a 30fps experience upscaled to your 4k tv? For the price of a Xbone/PS4 you could get a graphics card for your computer and everything is better. I haven't bought a game console for myself since an Xbox sometime in 2004, and sitting out and watching the development of the hardware AND the target audience is entertaining. I do own an wii incidentally, and there is less than a handful of games that are worth a fuck. Thank god for homebrew.

>Nintendo's best days ended in 1995.
>Top Selling System 2018

The "best days" of gaming ended in the mid-late 90s with some stragglers doing clean up through the mid 2000s. Nintendo at least does whatever they want, irrelevant of what the market says it wants. I think this is the hardest issue for brand-fans to grasp. Nintendo doesn't give a fuck. They make whatever they want to. PS4 & Xbox from my perspective seem like the same damn thing. Black tv boxes with the only major difference being the controller.

A N64 mini would outsell the PSX mini GUARANTEED, even if sony released something that was perfect. I am no "fanboy", and I think that the PlayStation was a better console in many ways. Sure the N64 was inventive and different, but the ps was marginally better. Sony could have fucked up worse on the mini system, but not much. It was close to greatness, but was just off in everything. All you can do now is hope that some 3rd party modder fixes it, but I doubt it.

Simply greentexting Xbox Live is not a is not a valid arguement. I'm thinking of getting either a 1TB Xbox One original Elite or a 1TB One S( the latter perhaps as part of a bundle) for the Christmas/Yule season to accompany my Launch model Switch. Yeah, the PS4 has good games in its own right along with an arguably better payment basis for PS4 and VIta Playstation Network, but the interface is still quite clunky in more than one area. Not only that, but on top of the PS1 Classic bombing, $ony has, since mid-late 2017, done unnecessary restructuring with their headquarters along with imposing a set of bullshit content censorship guidelines for PS4 games for all regions. They caved in to the idiot NPC dolts who make up most of mainstream vidya journalism these days.

To be fair most people would have been too retarded to notice, but they were also turned off by other things about it so the people who would notice were even more turned off than they were before. If the NES classic had used PAL roms for whatever reason, most people who are actually in their target audience wouldn't have known the difference.

>because otherwise the N64 library is pretty paltry.
They could do fine without the Rare games, but they'd have to go all in on the games, releasing stuff they've never put on the VC before.

Including just Banjo/Tooie/Perfect Dark would make people a LOT more accepting of it having an otherwise lackluster library.

They were lazy niggers who used a slightly tweaked fanmade emulator instead of making their own. It's widely known 3d console emulation is very shoddy outside of arguably the gamecube. The ps1/psx emulation has so many issues that could have easily been ironed out by the actual professional programmers who not only have access to every detail of the original design but were likely involved in either the development of it or at least developing games for it.

But no, Sony didn't want to bother and just wanted to cash in on the retards who buy emulation boxes, and it still blew up in their faces. Nintendo has been gouging their classic library for a decade now with virtual stores each console generation, but at least they put effort into their classic products. Do you think Nintendo is going to use project64 or mupen64 if they release that console as a classic?

Fact of the matter is Sony had an uphill battle and didn't leverage any of their strengths.

Wrong age group for max nostalgia and disposable income.

Well that would be rather retarded as they already have their own N64 emulator that outperforms them ten times over. I remember commending Nintendo on how well their Gamecube/Wii N64 emulators performed (they used an emulator for the N64 zelda games on the gamecube, a single generation after the N64) and people tried to shit on me saying duhh that's because they were paid. Sure getting paid a bundle is great, but it doesn't alter the laws of temperature and physics.

I forgot Resident Evil so that brings it up to 9. Even so, 9 classic games is not enough to justify buying a new device for. Nintendo gave people a bargain with their units because of all the great pre loaded games. Sony put in the bare minimum effort. There should not be any shoelace when the selection is that small, and I am not letting it go that they included Twisted Metal 1 instead of its superior sequel.

Hopefully many more indies will come to either Ninty or Microsoft. Seriously thinking of getting either a 1TB Xbox One original or any version of the One S rather than a PS4.
