It is kinda fun to watch everyone scream at each other . . . meanwhile, the stock just trades sideways. Business is going great but it is already veeeeery richly valued. So it goes.
Duly noted herein.
I thought the $99 price tag for GCN was briefly touched on in Nintendo's profit warning announcement last month but I couldn't locate the article.
>Isn't GCN retail at $99 to PS2's $199?
No, the GCN is $149.
There is a bundle for $189 that includes Super Mario Sunshine . . . I picked that up a week or so ago.
There is also an xbox bundle that contains JSRF & Sega GT 2000 for $199.
No official PS2 bundle.
"Then began the battle between PS2 and Xbox/GameCube and of course, with your usual knack for going against the flow, you pick the latter two as your strong horses."
No, I've always said since the start of the battle that PS2 would win the market share. Always. And I've always been critical of XBox. Always. Try to be more accurate next time.
First of all, I lifted those words about Cube version from your post a year ago about NBA street. Secondly, I never claim to know the nooks and crannies of these game boxes. You, on the other hand, often brag about being a developer for Nintendo, or Sega some studio and therefore, your opinion counts. When PSX claim more market strength, you countered with what superb Dreamcast could have been with a little tweak with the ports from EA. Then began the battle between PS2 and Xbox/GameCube and of course, with your usual knack for going against the flow, you pick the latter two as your strong horses. Well, guess what, Mr. Visionary? Could you tell me which of these 3 recently raise their sales expectations, and which of them warned and lowered guidance?
Isn't GCN currently retail at $99 at some stores?
Are you suggesting a small publisher has failed if it doesn't have as many top 20 hits as the largest publisher?
TTWO has 33% the projected '03 revenue of ERTS, and has a market cap of 10.5% of ERTS. ERTS to $80 by E3 :-)
I can't believe people are so blinded by GTA that they themselves cannot see whatesle TTWO has and convince themselves of this "one hit wonder" myth =T
Tycoon games (various)
