I was wondering if anyone could help me on how to make a poll with in a website, and that would generate results after a person has voted.
A good example of a poll that i am talking about is like the one on the PS3 Portal site.
I would really appreciate any help regarding this topic.
Mine works as part of a script. Normally, they come in a few different types e.g PHP, MYSQL... Here's a link to a tutorial I found:
Second in line for their pre-E3 conference, Nintendo filled the room with over 3,000 people who had ventured to witness the unveiling of the Wii. In case you've been living under a rock, Wii is the new name for Nintendo's new console, formally known as the Revolution. Yes, Nintendo is very aware that a name like that just begs to be ridiculed, in fact, the opening line from Nintendo themselves was a crack on the name. Nonetheless, they plan to stick with it, so be prepared for Wii jokes left and right for a few months...until people realize that this is one fun game system.
Nintendo has made it very clear through several announcements, that graphics are not the focus of the Wii, but rather gameplay and innovation that will drive their new console to sell....and the price point. While they have not made any price or date announcements as of yet, the Wii is anticipated to release sometime in November, and between $200-250.
The highlight of the conference can be summed up in one word, playable. The Wii had 22 games already playable, an absurd number for a system still months away from launch. There was even an on stage demonstration of a few games, including one in which a winner of an AOL contest got to play tennis, the first consumer to play with a Wii (insert joke here). Surprising to many, the graphics weren't as bad as Nintendo would lead you to believe, sparking rumors that the Wii would boast graphics equal to the Xbox 360. However untrue, the Wii games were looking good, and the innovative controller, the "Remote" looks to be of quality and a lot of fun to use.
Nintendo had a few tricks up their sleeve, the first of which being a small speaker in the controller, giving more in depth surround. When you fire your gun, you'll hear the bullets firing from your hand. This is something to look forward to. Another big announcement was that The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess would be released for both the Wii and Gamecube, in two different versions. The game will be the same, however controls will be different, allowing for the Wii version to utilize the remotes motion sensing technology.
There are many other very big titles coming for the Wii, which is a relief to those who were skeptical about 3rd party support. Some of the biggest titles include Ubisoft's Red Steele, Metroid Prime 3, Super Mario Galaxy, and the much anticipated Super Smash Bros. Brawl, which is featuring new characters, including Wario and Snake from Metal Gear Solid.
The biggest let down of the conference was the lack of solid information about things such as the Virtual Console, their emulation of the entire Nintendo library, or specifics on pricing and launch dates. Also there was no word yet about online gaming. Unfortunately, nothing was mentioned during E3 about any of this, so we'll just have to wait for that big announcement at some other time.
All in all, Nintendo's press conference was probably the least impacting. To be honest it is tough to beat the PS3's awesome graphics, and big announcements from Microsoft, such as Halo 3 and GTA IV coming to Xbox 360. But Nintendo's console is looking good either way. It is going to be a party machine, a fun and innovative experience, and that was their goal, so they have achieved that.
Microsoft and Nintendo did sort of deal Sony a blow at this year's E3. Both Nintendo and MS were quoted as saying that for the price of a PS3, you could get a serious console (Xbox 360) and a fun machine (Wii). I am very interested to see what happens in the next few months. Stay tuned here for more updates!
You should post maybe like 3 images about 300x300 or something to go with it and then the icon for the news page.
But Great work Dusty
