Setting the Path
June 13, 2002- Warning: What you are about to
read may be considered complete babble, and insane mumbling,
but anywho leave it to your deticated Pojo staff to jabber
24 hours a day seven days a week.
So sit down, for a brief mintue of two, and read what
I like to call... A good, but pointless editorial.
Nintendo has always been the trend setter in a way. Since
their release of their console: Nintendo Entertainment System
to their Super Nintendo Entertainment System, and now their
WaveBird wireless controller. Nintendo has set many trends
for companies like Sony, and other big developers racing
to stay on top of the industry to follow. We can all agree
that no one likes to play with cords, and Nintendo has finally
cured the probablem. For an affordable price of $35.00 you
can now enjoy games like Melee, Mario, Eternal Darkness,
and Resident Evil wireless.
Thankfully Nintendo now has something that fans of Nintendo
can brag about. Let's face it, it has been a while since
Nintendo Fans have really had something that they can shove
in Xbox, and PS2 fans faces. While those fans will continue
to brag about Halo, or GTA3. They will continue to talk
crap about Nintendo, as well, but atleast loyal Fans of
the Big "N" can shove the WaveBird in their face.
Nintendo fans will all love, and enjoy having that, but
thanks to a ever so growing billion dollar industry other
companies will probably release wireless controllers using
the same, or similar method as the WaveBird controller,
just to stay competitve.. Once this happens Nintendo fans
will lose that one thing that they can brag about... again.
But don't fringe. Those loyal fans will still awesome games
like Mario, Zelda, and others alike to enjoy wireless. Thats
not including the 100's of third-party's games that have
signed on with the Big "N".
Playstation 2 still holds a very strong market share and
still pretty much dominates the market, as well. But the
system is behind GameCube and Xbox in technology. PS2 is
a year old technology wise. With graphics, and hardware
that is not as fast as GCN, or Xbox the PS2 will soon show
it's age and will no longer be the "big thing"
as it is currently. Xbox, and GCN will then get their chance
at market domination.
Hopefull it will be a while before Sony, or Microsoft release
a wirless controller for their console, but the truth is
it is something that will eventually happen. But like in
the past Nintendo will have set a new path for others to
follow. First it was catridges, and gaming itself. Nintendo
was also the first to put four buttons on the right side
of a controller.Then the first to develope a 3-D videogame,
Mario 64 (later which will have become a standard in ANY
platform, adventure, or action game.).
Nintendo also was the first to use an analog stick instead
of a Directional Pad. As you can see Nintendo has set many
paths in the past for other companies to follow. But once
again Nintendo has set another. This time something so revolutinizing
is could be considered bigger than the clicker. This amazing,
extrordinary invention is there awesomlley impressive wireless
Hopefully no other companies will release a version of
this. Nintendo fans deserve a little special something after
putting up with delayed games, catridges, and annoying Xbox,
PS2, and Sega fans. It is true than Nintendo Fans are a
rare breed, but we're also a special one. We all are willing
to go through gameless months so we can play some of the
best games ever made. From Mario to Zelda, and Zelda to
Perfect Dark, we have put up with some pretty absurd prices,
and even more insane delays. But it's all good, and definetly
worth it in the end.
So after reading this, you'll probably be think why in
the good name of Shiggy did I write this. Well it is simple
my good friends... Remeber when Sony, and Microsoft release
there versions of the WaveBird, just think. We we're first.
And then you can truly say: Nintendo cares.
Stay with us for more babble, and even more impressions
and stories of the best controller Nintendo has ever released,
or for that matter anyone has ever released.
