  1. It's the same story every generation except the PS2 era. Whoever wins last gen think that success will carry them over into the next one automatically. Nintendo got arrogant with NES, Sega took over with Genesis. Sega got arrogant during that gen, and both Nintendo and Sega lost to Sony in the following gen (Sony entering the scene solely BECAUSE of Nintendo's arrogance). Sony got arrogant with the PS3 (people will get a second job in order to buy our system!), Microsoft took that gen (yes nintendo might have sold more wiis, but the attach rate sucked, and PS3 definitely made up lost ground at the end of the gen but in the US 360 won overall). Microsoft got arrogant thanks to 360's success, made it so all Sony had to do was say, "yeah, all that stuff Microsoft is doing? We're not doing any of that." Second best mic drop since Steve Race's "Two Ninety Nine" 1995 E3 Presentation.

  2. But everything I mentioned, they (Microsoft) did say...They were going to kill consumer rights by killing the used market. They did force the Kinect into every box whether you wanted it or not. I remember it I described because I was there, and being a retailer, their choices were going to directly affect me. I'm not saying they were awful for what they wanted to do. Here we are in 2019 and digital is killing physical and people can't wait for Apple and Google to listen to everything they say. Microsoft was wrong in trying to force it instead of letting people gradually embrace it over time.
  3. If you expect much better, then you don't watch Pat. I'm not up to date on the lingo, what is a FUD? What I recall of Xbox One in 2013 is Microsoft costed(?) itself millions of potential sales by saying they were going to force the digital age, force a stupid camera gimmick, and generally telling the public to go eff itself. I can tell you anecdotally that it was their arrogance that costed them the sale I was going to give them. Instead, my money went to Sony. And again, whether the console is $100, $150, or $200- I doubt anyone listening to Pat's misinformation walked away from his videos thinking "Well if it were under $200 I'd buy it- but no way at $250-$300!" Ouya was only $100 and that didn't work either (I bought one of those at launch as well. I feel I got my money's worth out of it). Anyway, I hope it does as well as you all hope. I just don't see it happening. (Hilarious that most of the people crying about physical games have ended up going digital anyway...)
  4. I rewatched it, and yes he was not attacking Intellivision with the Shark, Shark comment. I remembered it differently. I was incorrect. But I don't think it was a direct attack on everyone interested in the Amico, but just the people here specifically that are so incredibly upset over what he's said about it (since the entire video is basically a response to the people in this thread). The Amico isn't going to live or die based on Pat's potential quarter million viewership.
  5. To be fair, right now it has no games on it. Also, to be fair- every comment based on opinion is going to have a bias. It's sorta how that works...
  6. It's a shot at the brains behind the Amico that think the mass populace gives a crap about, let alone knows about Shark Shark. They are in no way attacking the people that are already gung ho for the Amico. I don't know Pat, but I'd bet money that neither he, nor most of the rest of the world gives a crap about how you spend your entertainment dollar. It'd be no different if Nintendo announced a new console with a Clu Clu Land remake as one of its lead games. A few fans would rejoice, most of the world would say "Wha-?" They're just stating that outside of that core group of fans- no one cares. That you take it as a personal attack says more about you than it does them.
  7. I listen to the CUPodcast every week. I like the show, but I'll be the first to acknowledge that Pat (especially) can play fast and loose with facts, and it's infuriating when they begin a topic in which he's clearly done zero research for. It's like, these topics weren't handed to you- YOU CHOSE THEM! Put a little effort into your job! I don't recall the exact scenario, but I was about done with the podcast a year or so ago when they were discussing something about Saturn and got just about every bullet point wrong. That said, I agree with Pat that there's little reason to have Tommy Tallarico on the show to "debate." It's free advertising for a concept they're wary of, and what could Mr. T possibly say that he hasn't said elsewhere? It'd be a bunch of PR speak and "wait till E3" because that's all it can be at this point. Just in this thread alone there's been "we won't talk of specs" (understandable, I guess), "we can't show much of the games" (ok), etc. There's no benefit for Pat to give the Amico a platform. I certainly wouldn't care to listen to it- unless some deal was made where 80% of the interview was talking old games and soundtracks and then some Amico at the end. The one thing that is driving me absolutely batshit is Pat's constant "IT'S GOING TO BE OVER $200 WITH SHIPPING/TAXES/EXTRA CONTROLLERS." That's just silly. But whether the console is $300, $200, or even $100- it's going to be a tough sell. I don't think it blasphemous to argue that. Like Shawn stated, the number of people that care about Intellivision as a brand is so small it may as well be a rounding error, and there are already a ton of consoles/hybrid machines out there that may not be completely devoted to the casual/S.A.F.E market- but have some stuff that fit in that category and are already in people's homes. I don't wish to see the Amico fail or anything, but I definitely agree it's going to be an uphill battle. And I bought a Hyperscan very close to launch.

  9. I've been looking for one forever. If you're interested in selling it, I'll give you $2500.

    GONE.

    I did, over a week ago and he never responded. He responded to this though, so I guess they're spoken for.
  11. I recently bought out a lot of stuff from a store that closed, and among it all was a ton of Combat, Football, Missile Defense, Pac Man, Asteroids, etc. I have no use for these as I've already a ton of Combat, Football, Missile Defense, Pac Man, Asteroids. If anyone here wants them, they're yours for whatever shipping would cost. I just want them gone. I'll supply pics if there's interest. Some are missing end labels, but the vast majority are not.
  12. He sent the Saturn imports I purchased quickly and nicely packed. Thanks!
