Why would they automatically start their next-gen systems worse than their last gen systems? For shits and giggles?

In the transition from XBOX1 to XBOX360 MS dropped the hard drive. Not including any sort of save memory with the system was a mistake, but dropping the hard drive helped them drop $45 build cost from every system when not all users were using it.

I expect that the Next XBox will include some sort of save memory, but forgo the expensive hard drive except as an option that's packed in with a certain percentage of SKUs. Whether that percentage is 30% or 80% or somewhere in between is the real question.

They could take the Cel-shaded route out, or go with a retro-themed top-down game like Four Swords (which they've already hinted at was being made?) out and they wouldn't have to worry about the pressure of next-gen detail. They really need something to showcase the power of a next-gen console, and Zelda would be the series to do it with. I don't care if they maintain Wii-level Mario games, but if Zelda doesn't jump up a notch I'm going to be pretty disappointed.

If nintendo has a respectable marketplace up from the beginning, and that is a very big IF, there is zero reason developers wouldn't put their stuff onto it. The most self-sabotaging move nintendo could do is once more enforce file size restrictions and retain the arbitrary and disorganized submission process they presently have in place. Even microsoft had no idea what a juggernaught DLC would turn into, which is why it took so long to get the 360 marketplace to get to where it is today.

Why do you keep discussing DLC? I've literally never even mentioned it in any of my arguments until you brought it up in the last few posts :P

Nintendo could only have a respectable marketplace if they do not have an obscene restriction in place from day one like developers only being able to depend on 8GB of space and then whatever SD cards consumers have on hand. In this regard, it's related to the issue of not having only a tiny amount of flash memory on board. They need at least 32 gigs of whatever they decide to go with in every system, whether it's a HDD or flash memory.

Texture pop-in and whatnot are improved by installs but that's only because it circumvents bottlenecks that may be absent in the cafe.

There is no way Cafe will be advanced enough to avoid texture pop-in, particularly in genres like open world games. I have a ridiculously high end PC that is probably superior to whatever Nintendo is planning on putting out to a factor of eight to one.

That said, there are ways to reduce it and install to HDD is one. Along with the loading benefits, I'd say it is the type of thing that even if a majority of people didn't know it existed or even cared, it's worth doing since it makes objectively superior gaming experiences and that is what should be designed toward: the ideal of gaming, not the ideal of the ignorant masses. And that may sound harsh, but that's the general argument. The majority might not use something, therefore it makes sense to cut that option out or simply not have it to begin with. As if popularity is what should dictate system design rather than the most idealized representation of a headache-free platform you can humanly make... we all know what popularity nets us. it nets us people liking TRANSFORMERS so much that we get three of those films ;)

The point here is simply Nintendo should be designing the system based on what makes games better, no matter how many people realize the system is making life better for them. Ignorance is not something that should be designed toward.

Including an 8GB flash memory is almost certainly as cheap as including a 60GB HDD. So even that argument is empty. If they're going to do it, they might as well go all in and not limit developers and consumers.

The logic might be that 8gb is enough for most people to have a taste of what the marketplace can offer, maybe download a handful of demos or one or two map packs and whatnot. At that point, the consumer can make the choice themselves as to whether they want to go out and buy more storage and how much.

Even Sony released similarly impressive statistics (this was when PSN surpassed XBL for registered users):

To date, more than 380 million pieces of content*4 have been downloaded, with total sales exceeding 180 million US dollars*5, and the business scale is rapidly expanding.

Way back in the day, so it's improved since then. Considering the PS3 userbase, this ends up being a big percentage of users who purchase downloadable content of some kind when you do the math and break down costs.

Either way, I'd say it is clear downloadable games and content is important to a massive section of gamers, even if it's not quite the majority. Certainly important enough to start making sure a system is designed around the convenience of it.

Where can you find 4,000,000 60GB Hard Drives at $11 a unit?

There's a floor to the cost of a hard drive - even in bulk - and it's somewhere between $30 and $45.

That said, I'm pretty sure that manufacturing has all but ceased on 120gig drives.

Does anyone even make 60GB HDDs anymore? I got the impression it wasn't cost efficient.
The price doesn't scale linearly like flash cards *almost* do, there's just too many materials involved. $8 will buy you an 8GB retail flash stick from Amazon.

i want a zelda that most resembles its concept art. so more tww/ss, less oot/tp.

i'm sure we're going to see at least one awesome realistic-yet-stylish action-adventure on the thing (at this rate it'll probably be beyond good & evil 2 sometime in 2017). however, i think the amount of cel-shaded stuff we'll see will start to slip since people don't have to mask the look of their games anymore to hide the power of the system.

well developers have even less of a reason to now that the wii is dead. i suppose it will continue on handhelds, perhaps.

we've never really had a game world that looks like you're playing an actual cartoon. although ni no kuni looks like it's getting pretty close.



or imagine a metroid prime remake in the style of the original concept art with improved level design and controls.

I think next-gen Cafe Mario will resemble Galaxy in graphics, just taken to a whole new level. As for Zelda, they've got to make it look mind-blowing with all the rich detail that are in modern western RPGs like Syrim and Witcher 2. I'm probably one of the few that wouldn't mind another OoT/TP game, only with modern graphics.

Not gonna happen. Japanese devs, specially Nintendo, tend more to do artistic looking games and not super-detailed-realistic games.

Most of my favorite characters of the series are from Wind Waker and Majora's Mask. I can't say I want it to turn into some Lord of the Rings clone. I don't know why people still clamor for a blood filled adult Zelda. Doesn't sound fun to me.

Zelda does not have to be realistic at all, it can be pure fantasy. Even Twilight Princess has cel-shading in it. I want another one, but in HD. I didn't like Wind Waker that much. Not because it was cel-shaded, but because of the art-direction, and lack of dungeons. If that makes any sense. I loved Twilight Princess more than any other Zelda game.

I highly doubt any single employee could possibly know that much information and be able to leak it.

On the other hand, Paper Zelda would be pretty cool. I really hope they give us something better than that, though. I would like a revisioned SNES Zelda, but Paper? That's kinda cheap. There are also way too many new IPs on there. 4 in house developers all working on something new? No way. I'd be surprised if we got one at launch. That's so risky.

I hope all of the third party games are true, but I seriously hope Nintendo has this better planned than that.

That list lost most semblance of plausibility at Paper Zelda. And we know how secretive Nintendo is; I very much doubt that anyone much below Reggie's level knows the complete Cafe E3 lineup just under four weeks out. Lastly, it's way, way too far in advance for that many titles to be confirmed for launch day.
