If only Nintendo sold the old pokemon games on other systems. They are missing out on so much money.
Are you serious? It would be the worst idea that could have ever been thought.It’d would be worse than making God of War or Killzone for all consoles and pc’s out there.
God of War yes, but nobody is envying Killzone. Hell, even most PS owners are ‘eh’ about it. Uncharteds?
That’s true. As far as PS shooters go, I’d say that Resistance is much better than Killzone.
Journey? Awesome game only on PS3. Sadly. I wish it were on at least PC as well.
shut it! that’s a GREAT idea!
I disagree. Nintendo gets more than half of it’s money from the consoles, that are mostly purchased due to specific games. whoever says this is likely someone with no Nintendo console that wants a Nintendo game.
At least some forward compatibility
let me just find your address now, so i can kill you in your sleep, benshannon.
Nintendo sells a game it made for its own company on a platform it made itself, thus forcing anyone who wants to play the incredibly popular game to buy the system. It also updates this system every few years to make sure the purchaser has to keep buying.
Noooo I think they figured it out.
This is the reason I have a Wii and a 360. Monster Hunter Tri is for the Wii and Chromehounds is for the 360. If it wasn’t for these games, I never would have gotten the consoles.
Until the Wii U, I had all three major consoles. I pretty much got the 360 for Tales of Vesperia, and the PS3 for Tales of Graces f. These people are geniuses at making money.
i had a vita once but that was until i lost it
You can play Pokemon on the Vita and the PSP though.
Not legally. And by doing that you couldn’t use the multiplayer features, which are a crucial part of the Pokemon experience.
Actually, there is nothing illegal about it if you already own the cart.
I was assuming that Nini was speaking of pirating the game to play on the Vita. Why would anyone buy a game for a console they do not own, or play a game on a different console than the one it’s meant for if they do own the other console?
Holy crap? the cart works in the Vita/PSP? I can’t wait to try this! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Actually, I’ve been playing pokemon games on my psp and using the trade feature for years. I’ve even loaded my pokemon yellow and Crystal teams from my psp into Pokemon Stadium 1&2 on my PC. It’s just a matter of having the right software. As for why I would choose to play these games on my psp instead of the original hardware, that would be because I can store my entire library of games on my psp and take them all with me in my pocket.
Nintendo needs to go Sega’s way, so they stop making crappy systems and focusing on making games, and also sell PC versions of their classics though digital distribution such as Steam.
All we need is a worldwide agreement not to buy anything from them until they change the “buy our crap to play these games” business model.
Sega was forced out of the console business by shitty sales of their last consoles. Why the hell would Nintendo stop making consoles, when the DS and Wii were the best-selling consoles of the 7th generation? They made a ton of money on the DS and Wii, so why would they stop what they’re good at?
You do realize that Microsoft and Sony apply the exact same business model, right?
Oh god, you’re a fucking moron. I guess MS and Sony should either completely drop exclusive development or fuck off too, right?
I, once again, strongly disagree. the Nintendo 3DS is popular, same as the Wii u. just not as popular as the DS and the Wii. just like the PS3 was not as popular as the PS2, and the Xbox and the Xbox 360.
How about a remake of the first games with gameplay style and graphics like X and Y…On second thoughts, maybe not
Funny thing is I have the original PSP and hacked it so I could have all my pokemon games on it xD.
what they should really do it remake all the pokemon games to fit the 3DS.
that way you can replay them with better quality.
they’ve started that project. also, I always wonder why this system flopped. now i know.
It’s amazing how PokÃ©mon affects portable gaming.
And Breath of the Wild…
And Mario Odyssey…
Thank God for the Switch.
yea, altho I don’t like the fact that pokemon go is going to infect the switch now… DX
my personal favourite is destiny
And so the hi-tech psVita looses out, yet again, to the awesomeness that is old school gaming….And pokemon. XD (I still don’t play my PsVita anymore and I’m busy playing old school Gameboy Advance games.)
old school gameboy advance games… old school… gameboy advance games…
Yeah, I know. It’s hard to believe that Ruby and Sapphire are 10 years old.
emerald is better
I havent played Ruby or Sapphire but I have to say emerald is awesome.
wait theres an emrald? maybe its for the gameboy or something because theres no emrald for nintendo 3ds xl
they pretty much just substituted pokemon with sonic on the playstation.
also, gens 3 and 4 have my favourite graphics ever, lol ima retro graphic person and stuff
You can just put an emulator onto the psvita, same as the 3ds and play roms.
What’s an emulator? I’m uninformed.
Welcome to gaming, I’ll show you the way to the emulators and r- oh wait, roms aren’t around anymore, thanks Nintendo!
Games company’s are like that, Xbox sells only halo on there console and Nintendo does this a lot, selling PokeMon, zelda and mario on there console only. It’s how they get you play there games, I kind of think it’s dumb, sell the game on all consoles, you get more money that way off of it.
If you release all your games on all consoles, no one will buy your console. It’s kind of the whole point of exclusives.
He’s right, a company needs something to draw the customer in. If you can play all Nintendo games on a Playstation why buy a Nintendo? Or vice-versa.
To be honest Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft should just all merge into one company, and only have one console that plays “ALL THE GAMES”
These I find wise words. They could combine powers and just completely rule the buisness. I’m afraid though, there will be a power struggle between the current presidents though..
Make one console for all the games? Are you insane? The only reason that we have the advances that have come to gaming is that the companies are competing for market share. If the only system that existed was the NES ans no one was looking to compete for our gaming dollar, we wouldn’t have gotten the playstation. Without playstation the N64 wouldn’t have come out because there would be no need to make advancements to lure gamers away from competitors. That means no PS3, no Wii, n Xbox 360, just NES. Sure they would probably roll out more advanced consoles, but at a much slower pace due to there being no need to one up each other.
What Nephrenra said. Also, what you’re suggesting is called a ‘monopoly’, and we have laws to prevent those for a reason. People fought real hard to get rid of them in the 30s, mostly because once you have one or two companies controlling ALL of one kind of product you’re at their mercy.
So yeah. No. Monopolies bad. Competition and capitalism at its finest good.
They tried releasing games on all systems before back when there was 14 systems out. The end result was part of what contributed to the video game crash of 83. Despite what people think, exclusives are good for the industry.
Does GaMERCaT own a 3DS? I think he needs one.
He does, and somebody should tell him about Pokemon X and Y
And Fire Emblem Awakening.
And Kid Icarus.
(And also possibly OOT3D, but Navi should have let him know anyway.)
If you were paying attention to earlier comics he already knows about OOT3D.
Make that cute little cat a sidekick or something. i love him!
well played little kitty well played
@Augustin, agreed, that’s a great idea! Make the little one a sidekick! :3
don’t diss the gameboycolor.
I can play Pokemon on my Android tablet…
Amazing as always. I’m looking forward to the next one.
why get a vita at all. there realy isn’t any good games on it to begin with. 3DS having Fire Emblem, zelda, mario, Monster Hunter, Mario Kart, and Pokemon. What dose the Vita have that’s worth buying it?
The only good thing going for it is that all the PS4’s games are playable on the Vita.
I’m still wondering how they’re going to do that. Even if the streaming technology works, the Vita lacks clickable sticks, R2 and L2.
The funny thing is that they may just keep the Vita-PS3 model. You have to buy both console games, of which the Vita’s version is usually $10-$15 more. Why change from something that is extremely profitable?
He’s talking about the promised PS4-to-Vita streaming feature, that will allow us to stream the video and audio of games to our Vita from our PS4, for essentially the same experience you get while playing games on the Wii U gamepad. It’s supposed to work for every single PS4 game, but I’m wondering how they’ll get that to work considering the Vita’s different set of control outputs.
actually, you could play all the games up to gba on a vita too…
Yeah but playing Nintendo games on a console made by a company that hates and has been trying to get rid of Nintendo for years makes my blood boil just thinking about it. No way are my Nintendo games touching Sony.
But on the other hand, it implies a perfect world in which both companies are one, and get along. That is pretty nice :-3
its not like nintendo would mind if sony died for some reason either
I know, I feel the same way about playing PS games on a Nintendo console. In other words, until they stop fighting I refuse to multiplatform them.
I like how Retrokitty barely says anything, about one sentence a comic. He’s too busy gaming to have to deal with GaMERCat. But I hope he becomes a recurring character.
(I’m only calling him Retrokitty because I remember someone else calling him that and I love that name, I hope Samantha sticks with it ;-) ) and if he does become a recurring character I wonder if it’ll be a running gag that he’ll never been seen without being glued to a gameboy.
