That's just market value. It could mean 1 of 2 things. Could mean that a larger piece of Nintendo is public when compared to Sony (I believe this is true, but not by much). could also mean that people think that Nintendo is making much more money from the game then they actually are. Nintendo does not own the entire game of pokemon go. They are a joint investor in the Pokemon company, but the revenue from the game also has to go to Niantic, who google owns for the most part. I believe at the end of this month we should know the splits and how much Nintendo is making. I expect to see a drop in the stock price soon though. It just seems so overvalued. Or maybe I am underestimating Pokemon go.

Main moral of the story is: Do not base net worth of a company by market value. That's a bad strategy. You will get nothing but a honey farm in your portfolio.

I can see where the confusion came from though, Gamespot is the king of misleading article titles.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Looking for a copy of Shantae GBC.
« on: July 20, 2016, 07:06:05 pm »

Do try to understand: I do my best to have legit physical copies of games but who here can say they have EVERY game that they have a ROM of? or every movie they ever wanted to see legally?
Honestly, I only own about .01% of the roms I have. (Damn Romsets) :P
I am one of the few people here that do not care much about physical copies. I am a player, not a collector. That being said, I do like playing on the original console if given the choice. As long as it isn't much of a hassle.

you do realized that Nintendo is worth more money than all of Sony, right? that's including all of Sony's businesses combined.
Not true, according to these sources.

Nintendo seems to be worth roughly 1/2 of what Sony is, and that is only counting equity. This is not surprising, seeing as Sony has their foot in damn near every industry while Nintendo is strictly gaming.

only buy good games, you'll be very happy with this policy. Don't by crap, doesn't matter who makes it, if it's crap.

Yeah, despite this being what everyone would think, not many people actually follow it. Hell, how many units did that assassin's creed game sell?

You are saying that it would only cost you 30 bucks to make such a device, in contrast to the 60 usd price tag. However, you need to take into account the cost of each of the 30 games included, which, as much as I would like to, arent free
Oh. You are talking about why Nintendo is pricing this at $60 rather than something lower? I am aware that they have to increase price for licensing, I'm just saying that as a consumer this product holds little value to those who are not collectors. I never said that it would only take 30 to make the Mini Nes, I said you could make something much better at around the same price. Which is true.  :P

I'm talking about that 30 dollar used pc you intended to buy.

Edit: Oh you mean one of those little handheld pc's. Well, you can't just spend 30 dollars and call it a day. You got to buy a ac adapter, mouse, keyboard, controller, hdmi cord, then you gotta download and install an OS, emulators, roms. Good luck gifting that to your parents.

I can get a computer that far surpasses the system requirements for NES games at ~$30. That includes everything needed except for a monitor, which a TV can act quite well as. also controllers are only $10. that will bring you to about $50 once you include shipping.

And no, I meant a windows 7 desktop. Its not difficult to grab parts from places like Amazon or Ebay and put them into a box. You can also find hard drives with OS installed for a very low price. The internet sure is a great place sometimes  :)


You didnt account the price of the games, and licensing seem to be a big part of that price tag


I am confused by this statement.

Yeah, but then you'd have to live with the shame of still using windows xp in 2016. Thanks for the advice tho. I do want Nintendo to make more things like this. Mini SNES here I come! If anyone should be profiting off their own systems it's Nintendo.
Im using windows 7, and have 0 problems. my brother uses windows 10, and has 0 problems. are there any I should know about?

And I would have far more interest in the mini SNES, even if just for a set piece.

Emulators require you to buy expensive equipment in most cases. Like a pc or a phone, then you gotta buy a controller. This plug in play thing only requires you have a tv, which most people already have. 60 bucks and you get 150 dollars worth of virtual console games.

(unless you got amazon prime, which is free 2 day shipping. so why the hell don't you have it yet? Just do it.)

Honestly, the only reason anyone on this board should buy this thing is to tell Nintendo "make more things like this".

This is already a thing i think. Its called "Playstation now".  It streams games to your console.

ゐ - wi
ゑ - we

these aren't used much anymore, but they occasionally are seen. I only ever see them in old literature. ...and on よゐこ...

when you see a small tsu like that it will sometimes be as if someone cuts them off mid sentence, or the syllable before is more pronounced, I think.

The small wa thing was new to me but I found this which seems to say that it was used in older times to differentiate between similar writings. Not sure though.

My apologies to any translator that cringes at Romanji patches and partial translations, but no one else was doing these and they help.
Partial translations are fine by me, but this is the first time I have heard of a romaji patch. What does it mean? putting romaji in the game instead of keeping the incredibly basic hiragana/katakana system in? Yeah, I guess that's weird, but this a hobby where you can do whatever the hell you want and tell everyone who is against you to suck your E-peen.   :thumbsup:

I might take a few looks at this stuff when I am on break at work. But then again, I say ill do a lot of things that I never do  :P

Yeah, might as well put up an ad.

ROM Hacking Discussion / Re: What are you looking for in a ROM hack?
« on: July 15, 2016, 11:05:47 pm »
Nope. Not bewps not bewbs and not helicopters with bewbs. None of this is what I would be looking for in a ROM hack.

 I want users to sacrifice themselves. To give themselves utterly unto the rom hack.

Full translations. Please..

Anything less is only a "hack."
Okay, how about this. A full translation. With bewbs.

Its more content, so why the hell not??  :happy:

Hell yes. Shadowrun is one of my favorite Genesis games, even if it is quite broken.

I am looking forward to this. This might be one of the only genesis romhacks i could put more than 15 minutes into!

From a business standpoint: This is great, no doubt with all the hype and the low cost of production that they will move a lot of these out (my prediction is it will sell out similar to the beginning of the amiibo craze).

From the standpoint of a person who has a PC with a complete romset, solid emulators, and a USB controller: This thing is only interesting to have on your shelf so people come over and say "well, would you look at that". If they decided to add SD card support (no way in hell that will happen) it could be okay. Other than the aforementioned mapper problems, it would be fun to have around. It is still made worthless due to the raspberry Pi and any PC/smartphone.

I wonder if they might take this discovery at their emulation advantage.
He says in the video that he has been talking with emu developers about the whole thing. My guess would be that he contributed to that one.

I guess you get to use the classic controller....
I bought a pretty solid USB NES controller for about $15. It has four buttons, but other than that I cannot tell the difference.

Plus, I don't really think I can play this much anyway since my tablet's WiFi only.
Same here, my phone is wifi only. I am considering getting a new one to try the game out, but when I played Ingress I didn't have a great time.

Is the author still working on this hack?

Because that's the big reason it wasn't done two years when Tomato played through the game.
It was last updated in may of this year, and the page says he plans to continue working on the hack.

So, what are the hardware requirements for the PC version ? If they're not too high I could consider getting the game.
My computer is an Acer laptop made in 2011. The framerate seems to be low sometimes but due to it being a turn-based strategy rpg, I can't even tell.
