I really wouldn't be surprised if there was a 4th race Blizzard has yet to reveal. They've been working on this game since Warcraft 3 was released? I know they take their time with games but that seems like a decent amount of time to conceive a 4th race and get some balancing down.

But like it was already said, it's Starcraft and it doesn't need any more races. The entire Korean population will buy this game and that's all Blizzard needs to say "yay!".

Played through the GC version countless times. One of my favorite games of all time. This "port" accurately demonstrates why and how console-to-PC ports fail. It's a disgrace and I want nothing to do with it.

Hopefully the Wii version will calm me down.

Midway seem pretty happy with the Wii and the development of Mortal Kombat...7 is it? The IGN previews and videos demonstrate the WiiMote can be used creatively and accurately in a fighting game. If this game ends up failing, it's not the WiiMote, it's the developer and their inability to use the WiiMote to its full potential.

Absolutely Creston. It is bullshit.
Hell, any why not? They'll be making so much money from Korea, why not lower it a bit to garner even more people?

This game, failing? Not going to happen. The fact there is still free multiplayer options, sans some content, will also be more than enough for countless North Americans to buy and play the game online.

$10 a month is a bit steep. It is obviously being met with a lot of resistance, but everyone consider this. Which market is bigger for....pretty much any Blizzard game. Is it North America or Korea?

I am 100% certain that hundreds of thousands of people in South Korea WILL shell out the $10 a month. This game is not going to failure based alone on a $10 a month subscription you do NOT have to sign up for. Does anyone know how many people still play Diablo 2 classic, sans expansion. A rape in the ass or not, many people will be getting raped in the ass because they will pay for it.

If there are people out there willing to (at one point) shell out $200 USD for that D2 Barbarian Helmet (Arreat something), then there are certainly people out there who won't even give a second thought about paying $10 bucks a month for new things.

I don't buy half the arguments in here in regards to this game failing. Korea is gonna eat this shit up and honestly that's the only market Hellgate: London needs to more than break-even.

Edit: and yes I know this isn't a Blizzard game, but it has an online Korean following very similar to Blizzard games. Anything addictive, they buy. Simple as that. Also agree with Creston, this model is gold for Flagship and shitty for those not interested at all in shelling out more money.

Good definition. Thanks.
Seems I had a brainfart writing my last post and completely forgot about the games you mentioned. Was too fixated just on Nintendo, where we are both agreed they know little about making/releasing Hardcore games.

"Diablo 3 will bury this POS! Thanks for coming out, Bill!"

Interesting you say Diablo 3 will bury Hellgate. You most likely know the entire senior staff behind Diablo 1, 2 and the Expansion left Blizzard to create Flagship. A leap of faith that a 3rd Diablo made without any of the previous Diablo senior staff will good enough to trump a game that has been made by previous Diablo senior staff, whom have been quoted to say that their primary target market is Diablo players (hence they've probably designed the game to appeal to anyone that enjoyed the Diablo series).

I also wouldn't be surprised if a future Diablo game was also a pay for play game. Blizzard has tasted the $$$ with WoW, why not bring in their other massive fan base and make them pay large heeps of money for Diablo 3 without taking away from WoW. Blizzard has 3 extremely powerful IP's and they're going to exploit the s*it out of them.

Though despite all this, I'm a little surprised some people are insulting/going off on Flagship. They haven't actually announced anything. Insulting people based on stuff they haven't actually said yet is...well that's the internet isn't it. Never mind.

Edit: To avoid contradicting myself, there is no doubt a Diablo 3 would be extremely successful, free or not for online play. I'm concerned that without the leadership of the people that created the IP, there is a slim chance it will meet peoples expectations. If Diablo 3 were to bury Hellgate, is it because it's actually a good game or is it just because it's called "Diablo".

True.

I have nothing but respect for Miyamoto's accomplishments, but I don't understand the point of this article or the other ones popping up about this. What does this have to do with anything, and who is really supposed to care?

In another article he states that he creates games that "gamers don't even know they want" (something along those lines). I'm wondering...when is that actually going to happen? Every game you make is talked about for years before it's released, everyone either wants it or doesn't long before it is even released. Did people not realize they wanted any Zelda or Mario game before it was released? Maybe he's talking about spinoffs like Mario Strikers, Mario Party...all that stuff but still they're nothing really new all based on the same IP.

Edit: And in another article based on this story he discusses that Nintendo has a lot of "hardcore" games being developed and coming out soon. Really? When has Nintendo ever released something truly hardcore? The term hardcore has mostly been applied, in my opinion, to American/Canadian/Maybe European made games, but not to Japanese ones...I think anyway. Does he even know what it means? I'm not sure if I even know what it truly means.

I'd be willing to pay the 9.95, if that even is the case, if paying customers only ended up playing with other paying customers. At least it would remove *some* of the insane kids that take pleasure in ruining everything, ala Diablo 2 and battle.net. If that isn't the case...well that's a bitchslap in the face.

Until Flagship themselves go into detail about what the 9.95 gets you, I won't get too worked up about it. Just give us an option to avoid playing with non-paying customers, please.

$129.99 is a lot less then I was expecting. I thought it would be anywhere from 159-199. Almost imported it a couple days ago for $199US, + shipping and the customs charges. I think I'll wait.

I asked for proof of Nintendo's doom, and all you posted was opinion and speculation. You want to use the fanboy attack, be my guest. You feel the need to attack me and the FACTS I provided, fine be my guest. To make it stick, however, I'd suggest providing PROOF and not opinion. Your opinion, which you have the right to express as much as you wish, has not in any way proven to me that Nintendo is fucked.

If I'm a fanboy, I'm a fanboy of ALL 3 consoles. I want them all to succeed as it only results in more games for me to enjoy and more fun for me to be had.

So Xbox has lost nearly $400 million so far, and no one says nothing. No complaints, no hateboy'ing on the internet anywhere. It's acceptable. Apparently losing lots of money to "hopefully" make money way down the road is acceptable in gamers views. That's fine.

Nintendo, which has made $800 million US net profit in 3 months, is apparently retarded and "going down the drain" according to some people. I do not get it?

The Gamecube has done better in America then the Xbox and 360 have done in Japan, no one says anything. Apparently that's ok. No one says nothing. The massive Japanese market is not important apparently. Nintendo has some sales problems in the US, and Nintendo is offically fucked. The name-change apparently seals the deal on that one. Everybody is having a field day.

I do not understand where some people get their ideas from. I, truly and honestly, would like people screaming Nintendo's doom to PLEASE post some sort of proof of it. Anything at all. Is it really just trolling and misinformation people are going on, or is there proof out there that Nintendo is finished in the gaming market? It's true that a lot of their profit is from the DS. Wasn't the DS doomed according to the industry when it was announced? It's also true that some of the profit is coming from Nintendogs and those Brain Teasers. Doesn't that say something though? It says that there is a massive market out there for things other then Graphically intense FPS and Grand Theft Auto's.

"Tell me, who had the "Revolution" on the top of their go-to list at E3, at this time last week?"

According to Famitsu polling its readers, Revolution was and still is on the top of the Japanese list for what they're looking forward too at E3....so maybe you should do some more research on what you're talking about Aaron. 45% went to Nintendo, 42 or so for PS3. Xbox360 was around 4%. Famitsu may only represent the Japanese market, but that's all Nintendo cares about.

Wii is a garbage name, agreed.

Ignorant or not, he said it and I just want him to sell me on that statement by backing himself up with something, anything. I'm extremely curious to learn how Wii will go the way of the Virtual Gameboy. The SP was announced, it was called a sinkhole. The DS was announced and released, it was called Nintendos doom and a sinkhole. From what I've seen of Nintendo over the last couple years, they seem to have an idea of what works? If I'm mistaken, someone prove me wrong. Please.

perhaps you have some sort of conclusive proof...some data...a chart maybe? Something to backup that bold statement, anything at all? Perhaps attacking the Gamecube to backup your statement, that would be original after-all.

I guess as time passes it'll become easier to call it the Wii. Still wondering how weird it'll be to do something like go into an EB and ask "May I please pre-order Metroid Prime 3 for the Wii?"

Yes, they are groaning. What's sadder still, the Hateboys are salivating and getting off on this. Nintendo went and added gasoline to an already raging fire of hate.
