    Their piece of that model is extremely low compared to Nintendo as a whole, and still a small sliver if you're just comparing it to the Wii.

    Yeah, keep that thought as long as you can lol. Might help to read the article. Tretton is addressing the "social and free to play" models. It's the title of the article and thread that makes people follow the wrong cheese.

    Nothing wrong with the PS3 going casual. Sony needs to make money too.

    Sony has plenty to satisfy hardcore fans. I wouldn't mind some "causal" games however I don't want to see "Kiddie" games and that's such a fine line.

    im just gonna throw this out there all games are for kids and your as old as you feel and that can change at any moment. as far as all handheld gaming being for kids i disagree i dont see kids playing on the go any more than i see adults. Handheld gaming just isnt as immersive as console or pc gaming so i would expect more people to game at home. Casual and hardcore gamers on the other hand are usually playing thier games on cellphones, because they are cheap games that you can play in 5-10min of downtime. Must people dont have time for a 5hr campaign on the go. I have a vita and im not a busy person and i havent purchased a single game i ditched my cellphone and got a 3g/4g wifi vita.

    i think the idea of a dedicated handheld device isnt easy to pull off seeing that only two companies are playing this dangerous game. I think a game like devil may cry on the vita or castlevania were to come out on the viga with cross play extra content like episodes of dmc or castlevania being unlocked as you play through. People would be all over it. Sony has to come out with a blend of traditional gaming and something casual. Dont just give me killzone portable with nothing to really encourge me to continue playing.
    "I think all those developers who are saying, "We don’t want to do a PS3 game," or "It’s really difficult to do it," should shut up and make their games. If you have time to complain about it, then you should be spending your time working on getting the most from the hardware."

    Would you also consider Mega Man to be casual? It's for kids but is probably one of the most hardcore series ever made. Would love to see a casual gamer even make it through 1 level.

    You just said it yourself - "its for kids." To me a kiddie game is a kiddie game regardless if its difficult.

    Doesn't mean its casual though. So even back in the 90s you never played platformers? If so how are they suddenly bad games?

    Kiddie or casual. Fairly similar but different too yeah but I dont care for either. I played platformers when I a young kid. And I never said they were "bad games" I said they dont appeal to me. Big difference. As I got older my tastes changed. You and I obviously have different tastes in games. Doest make either of us wrong.

Yeah they could propably do worse but still Sony is definitely catering to the casual this year and putting their core audience off until next year as far as their exclusives go. I'm disappointed to see that. But fortunately I'm not limited to just the PS3. From a business perspective thats propably good for Sony (maybe) if these games actually sell but from a core gamer perspective not so much. At least 2013 looks promising.
    You consider SSBB and Mario Kart as casual games? Interesting
    I actually consider them as fanfare for the core gamers
    Thou the Karting games have been done before, Crash had one, dam even Sonic has one

    Yeah I do consider those to be casual or maybe kiddie would be a better description. Thats how they seem to me.

    Fair play, I ain't gonna argue with that
    They are definitely aimed at the younger audience, thou F34R seems to disagree, well atleast for Nintendo games
    Thou I wouldn't call them casual, not in the same sense the blatantly obvious ones are
    But then again I think most sports games are casual games, but I think it depends on how you play them too, for instance COD is a casual game but it can be played hardcore by core players, ya get me?

    Yeah I got ya. But I wouldn't call COD casual but I would definitely call it mainstream. Kind of like Madden.
