    The software is a different story though. I don't think that the sticks are inherently bad; rather, the software reading the analog inputs is janky. The software team needs to add a deadzone threshold to the calibration tab to get rid of drift, but drift isn't the only problem. Mine rarely drift in fact, but the left sick infrequently quits accepting inputs entirely for seconds at a time which may... be a hardware issue. They are still durable in a sense that they are not "flimsy."

    Nintendo has always made "profitable" hardware. I can't speak on the switch, but Nintendo has always made money on each console sale. M$/Sony have been known to under price consoles in hopes of making money on the software sales.

    It is disappointing to compare the DS4 with Joycons though since Dual Shocks are perfect in every aspect.
    It might feel sturdy but it's a durability problem if it doesn't stay functional over time .

    That's scummy. I don't think enough people will raise a fuss because of how popular the Switch is.

    So I was looking at some Turok carts online (Turok 2 Seeds of Evil specifically). Yeah I know there's a remaster but it's digital only for my situation, so nope.

    Saw some Japanese carts labelled Violence Killer Turok New Generation.
    I don't recall noticing that before

    LRG is almost certainly going to toss up more copies of the physical version on the January 1st clearance sale.
    *PSA* Wii Redump collector's can now unscrub ISO files. So scrubbed games can now be verified. You can find the program to do this here

    Does a violence killer kill violently, or is it someone who works to kill violence?

    Did you all have a good xmas? I notice it is sure hard to find strategy guides for certain games.

    Xbox One doesn't have stuff like that physical, I believe it has to do with production numbers but idk. Like Metal Wolf Chaos is only digital.
    No biggie though I have an NTSC N64 and already have a cart of the first game.

    Ah yeah, it's silly that MS isn't doing any limited prints. It's as if they actually dislike the physical market.

    I just assumed you didn't want to buy the overpriced Switch physical version for whatever the eBay price is going now. While I like these limited run releases, it's hell to buy any of them after the fact.

    Nah I'm too cheap to spend big money on things I don't really need. I don't have anything Switch including the console.
    I could just wait until I get a cheap ED64 clone (like I will for most titles) but there are some physical N64 carts I wouldn't mind having, in the case of Turok 2 it's the early black US cart I'm kinda interested in tbh.

    You know, Zelda: Breath of the Wild should be lower in price by now. I think Nintendo would probably get more sales if they actually lowered their price of their first party games after a year or two, like MS and Sony do. When first party games do go on sale, they're only $5 or $10 off.

    Nah, this absolutely works out better for them. The depreciating price model makes many customers who might otherwise be willing to pay full price, just not. So when prices drop and those customers eventually pick the game up, you can consider those sales lost money. Plus the money actually earned on one $60 sale isn't even close to equal to three $20 sales.

    Sure this is worse for me as a consumer that wants to buy everything possible. But it's clearly a more stable business model.
