>the SNES was sold in Japan until 2003.
the Sega Master system is still sold in Brazil.
>>146387985What the hell was Brazil's fascination with it anyway?
More games were produced for the Sega Dreamcast than for the Nintendo gamecube
>>146388149It's cheap, Brazil has an insane import tax.
>Brazil just got the PS2 in 2010
Indie developers till develop and sell games for the Dreamcast and Neo-Geo
>>146388253That disgusting potbelly.
More Sega Saturn games were released in Europe than in the US.
>>146387985where is the cartridge slot?
>>146388184>>146388441I don't know about the rest of the world, but in Japan there were 282 GameCube games and 499 Dreamcast games. People joked about the GameCube having little games, but I didn't think they were serious.
Sonic Adventure came out 8 years after Sonic 1.Sonic Adventure came out 13 years ago.
>>146388532It has preloaded games on it.http://segaretro.org/Tectoy_Master_System_Evolution
Nintendo would repair your NES up until 2007, when they finally just ran out of parts.
The early title for Mega Man was "The Battle Rainbow Rockman". This was due to the fact that Rock could change into seven different colors.
It costs Sony $150 more to make a PS3 than what they sell for.
>>146389247When it launched maybe, but they profit from each unit sold now. Not that it matters.
The enemy characters in Golden Axe are named after liquors.>Heninger (Henninger)>Long Moan (Longmorn>Zuruboka (Zubrowka)>Bad Brothers (Bud)>Lt. Bitter
Rockman & Forte was released on the Super Famicom after Rockman 8 was released on Playstation
The first two boss characters in the arcade version of Double Dragon are just head-swaps of other characters.
the number of PS1 games released outnumbers the number of N64 games 6 to 1
The SNES is still for sale worldwide.Matter of fact, it was never off the shelves at all for the past 20 years. Game stores like Game Crazy, Game Dude, etc, carried used stuff for years. And console on a chip clones have covered the rest of the gam.
>>146390227N64 has nogaems
mods ? in MY video games thread ?
>>146390602But those are clones.
>>146390685Why the fuck are you putting spaces before the question marks you stupid piece of shit?Also, this is janitor work. Idiot.
When we got a full dub of DBZ, it was over a decade after it finished in Japan.
>>146388334The Sega Saturn actually sold well in Japan.
>There's two different games titled Wonder Boy III (Monster Lair and The Dragon's Trap).>Monster World III actually came out in Japan right before Monster World II. That's because the Master System version of MW II was canceled over there and the game had to be ported to the Game Gear.
>>146390685yeah they did it to get rid of /b/ shit, which are are still doing
>>146390685>>146390818What are you talking about?
>>146390886Some faggot used "moar" and a janitor deleted it.
>>146390821used to confuse me because i saw images of SNES Dragonball Z games that had Buu in it, and we were just receiving the Buu Saga
>>146390227Well that's obvious. The PS1 pretty much invented shovelware as we know it today.
>>146390854>Monster World was the name of Monster Land's Mark III port in Japan. However, the same port was still called Monster Land everywhere else.
There is no english dub for the last series of Sailor moon.
Isn't the PS2 still pretty big in Japan?
>>146390685>>146390818>>146390861>>146390886>>146390917Silence!The first pong arcade machine broke down in less than 48 hours; the coin-op mechanism was overfilled with quarters.
>>146391194Sells more than the 360 anyway.
>>146391289I'm guessing that's not saying much though.
>>146391086the PC did
I always thought it was weird how they seemed to be releasing games for the SNES in Japan long after the console was dead in the US. I guess it makes sense.
Many Master System games that were never released in Japan supported the FM Sound Unit, an add-on for the Mark III that was released only in Japan.http://www.smspower.org/Tags/FM
In Space invaders, the increasing speed of the sprites as the game progresses was an accident caused by the hardware.
The last officially licensed Nintendo game was Wario's Woods, in 1994. To put that into perspective, the Playstation launched in 1994.
tengen, famous for making several unlicensed nintendo games, was actually owned by atari.
>>146391621Adventure Island IV was the final licensed Famicom game in Japan though. It came out a few months after Wario's Wood as a matter of fact.
Japan had a lot of systems that ran games off of cassette tapes. The Commodore 64 had a cassette tape add-on too, which also played games.
>>146391793Forgot my pic.
what was the last-released super nintendo game?i remember kirby's dreamland 3 was released in like '97
>>146389026Got my SNES fixed back in 04
>>146391882Kirby's Dream Land 3 = Last first-party SNES game came out in 1997Frogger = Last third-party SNES (and Genesis) game came out in 1998Metal Slader Glory: Director's Cut = Last Super Famicom game came out in 2000.
the nintendo gamecube was actually codenamed dolphin before it got officially released
That reminds me, does nintendo still fix gbas?
>>146392162>am i kawaii uguu~
In Japan, some Famicom games came on floppydisk-type things. You could go to special "vending machines" and insert your floppy disk and it would erase the data for that game and write over a new game of your choice at a significantly lowered price.
The main heroes from Contra, Bill Rizer and Lance Bean, are named after the four actors from Aliens: BILL Paxton, Paul REISER, LANCE Henriksen and Michael BIEHN. In other words, it's actually supposed to be Bill REISER and Lance BIEHN.
>>146392335It was the future in Japan in the past.
>>146392335It's called the fucking Disk System, bitch.
>>146390724>clonesDoesn't really matter. It plays SNES content, which means SNES continues to this day.
Gunpei Yokoi was a loyal employee of Nintendo since the 60s. He made Game & Watch and the Game Boy. He made one mistake and was booted out of Nintendo. When he tried to make a rival company, Nintendo knew he was a threat and orchestrated a car "accident" that killed him.Just thought you should know.
>>146389247Back in the days, right now it use outdated hardware.
The original title for Metal Gear was INTRUDER.
>>146392734>He made one mistake and was booted out of Nintendo. When he tried to make a rival company, Nintendo knew he was a threat and orchestrated a car "accident" that killed him.That's just an urban myth. Although, the Wonderswan was designed by him for Bandai and the game Gunpey was titled in his memory.http://kotaku.com/5789740/why-gamings-most-tragic-conspiracy-is-bullshit
>>146392734He actually quit since Nintendo window seated him. The initial car accident isn't what killed him either, he was hit while he was checking on his car after the accident.
>>146392789Hiroshi Yamauchi, the president of Nintendo at the time, had strong ties to the Yakuza. It's a little too convenient that Yokoi would die right when he started having success outside of Nintendo.
>>146392951>linking to Kotaku
>>146392951>>146392951>>146392951>>146392951>kotakuLOLOOLL_OLOLOLL you nigger
>>146392747Hence OPERATION: INTRUDE.
Miyamoto hated Rareware.He will tell you, to this day, that he hates Donkey Kong Country and thought it was just popular because of the graphics. He actually believes they ruined Donkey Kong.
>>146393127The N313 is a reference to Metal Gear's internal code name within the development team. By the way, Snatcher's code name was N328 and its working title was JUNKER (the organization Gillian Seed works for in the game).
>>146393361Another urban myth, considering Miyamoto worked with Rare on DKC and even came up with Donkey's and Diddy's designs.
>>146393419He said on Icons years ago that he thought the game only got good reviews and sales because of the graphics. Unless G4 mistranslated it, he is backpedaling.
Final Fight's original title was Street Fighter '89. Capcom originally wanted a Street Fighter sequel, but Yoshiki Okamoto wanted to do a brawler instead due to the popularity of Double Dragon. After Final Fight was released, Okamoto decided to work on a real Street Fighter II.
>>146393575>Quotes the post then purposly misspells-5/10
>>146392521Except it does. Every single clone system has compatibility issues with certain games.
Metal Gear Solid 1 is sort of a remake of Metal Gear 2. It had many enemies, plot devices, and locations that were similar.Metal Gear Solid 2 is very similar to Metal Gear Solid 1 because the bad guys were actually making Raiden go through a simulation of Shadow Moses.So, basically, the same game was recycled twice.
>>146393361Even though that's fake, there's a grain of truth.Donkey Kong Country WAS popular because of the graphics. The game itself was pretty mediocre.
The N64 has something weird with how it renders textures. This makes it impossible to emulate correctly on a lot of systems while you can put a PS1 emulator on your iPhone with no problem.
>>146394020Not exactly. They do recycle a lot of events from the MSX2 games in MGS1 and MGS2, but it's not like they're scene-to-scene remakes. The similarities between Metal Gear 2 and MGS1 are pretty parallel to the similarities between A Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time.
Tetris has an ending. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofWVtZ9O0Yc
There was another version of Resident Evil 2 that is different from the game that was actually released. This earlier version of RE2, now known as Resident Evil 1.5, was in an almost-completed state when the lead designers, Shinji Mikami and Hideki Kamiya, decided to cancel when they were dissatisfied with the resulting product and decided to restart development from scratch, leading to the Resident Evil 2 we all know. RE1.5 featured a blonde girl named Elza Walker as the heroine instead of Claire Redfield.
>>146394101Miyamoto was qouted saying something about "fans being happy playing mediocre games" when the new DKC came out for wii though.
When you start up OOT and you see the Nintendo logo come up, it's actually already loaded the background of the menu and it's slapped on top to hide it.Nothing really interesting, but that's all I've got
I love these threads
>>146395081I dont remember a source, go ahead and call it fake since im sure you'll be too lazy to google it. Links were posted here a long time ago around the last E3.
If you play monster rancher 2 on a ps3, you can use newer disk formats like DVDs and Blu Rays to create monsters.
>>146395163I'm asking for a source because Google isn't providing one, and I'm pretty certain your story is fake.
A set of people secretly made Doom under the assumption that John Romero and John Carmack made it.For proof look at pic
>Miyamoto: The first point that I want to make is that I actually worked very closely with Rare on the original Donkey Kong Country. And apparently recently some rumor got out that I didn't really like that game? I just want to clarify that that's not the case, because I was very involved in thathttp://au.wii.ign.com/articles/110/1100039p3.html
>>146395773That's for the SNES one, the subject is the Wii one. Besides,>>146395694
So that means i can buy a SNES that is only 9 years old?
Is that what the japanese SNES looked like?Why did we get the ugly brick?
>>146397204That's the Super Famicom Jr. It was released in 1998.
I'm asking around so I can get the best answer.I want to finally get a PS2 and mod it so I can play a bunch of Japanese games, along with older games I never got to play that are simply too expensive now.Anyway, what's the cheapest way of going about this? Thanks in advance.
>>146397204>It was released in North America on October 20, 1997http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Nintendo_Entertainment_System_%28Model_SNS-101%29
