How come nobody calls Telltale Games ‘fanboys’?
The guys from Telltale Games, the people behind the recent successful relaunch of the Monkey Island franchise, have started griping about the Wii…not just the WiiWare 40mb file-size limit, mind you, but the hardware as well. One of the programmers for TT Games going by the alias of Yare spilled the beans to a ‘zine that the wii, and I quote, “The Wii and DS are extremely underpowered and their popularity doesn’t remove the hardware limitations.”
It’s one thing to hear a blogger rant and rave about the underwhelming Wii and DS, but to hear a person in the industry dare utter the words “…the Wii is just not a powerful console. An iPhone is much more powerful than a Wii, even.” just makes makes my jaw drop to the floor.
I know the iPhone is being considered competiton for the DS here in the US, but I’d never think that it could even rival the strongest (selling) console on the market.
Well, truth be told, I don’t think Nintendo will ever have ANYTHING to worry about when it comes to competition, they did the smart thing by making sure they made profit on hardware AND software, which is a complete stark contrast to what the intial plans for the 360 were and the current model for the PS3.
I’m wondering when the Nintendo backlash will arrive from it’s very vocal and apologetic community.
