Well to be fair at least Sony try to create new art styles for their games or new IP

Nintendo just re-use their art style over and over and over and over again..., don't get me wrong i like it but sometimes it would be nice a change but sadly the people/fans will complain... (in a example I love the "Toon" change in Zelda Wind Waker but apparently everyone in the world hated it...)


Actually no, Each Nintendo series/game has its own aesthetic and art style with its own character designs, art design, color scheme, etc. For example, Mario looks like a candy colored Disney cartoon, while Zelda generally has a more natural color palate with more human looking characters. Even Spin offs tend to look distinct. Donkey Kong looks tropical and green, while Yoshi's Island looks like a coloring book.

And they all have the same commonality in their art style....appeal to children.

CS Lewis was trying to drum up adult book sales, only kids were buying Narnia.

Shame they don't do console design, online, and third party relations better than Sony.

You know, things that actually matter.


Art style doesn't matter? Nintendo free online>PS Plus with the lack of dedicated servers too. You might be correct on console design if you are talking about performance and ease of development, although Wii U is much more aesthetically pleasing.


To be honest, all consoles these days look hideous.
The Wii U is just the prettiest gargoyle of the three.

You know, I hear a LOT of people bash Nintendo's online... but really, it's stable and it runs smoothly. I've not had any lag or disconnections while playing the Wii U online. I had it ONCE with Brawl, but that's because the netcode sucked nuts.

Every Wii U game I've played online performed as well as it did on the PS3, save for Injustice, which just lacks the ability to create lobbies.

So, the Wii U's online is already better than what the PS3's was at this point in the PS3's life.
Maybe in another year, it will surpass the PS3 as it is now.

Cross out online, Nintendo has free online and Sony's is not. Also Nintendo has backwards compatibility.
