More Weird News

Remember when I said it was weird how Nintendo, Capcom and Square-Enix’s stock value decreased after Nintendo’s pre-TGS press conference, well Sony”s share price actually increased slightly after their conference.  Why I say this is weird is because Sony’s conference was anything but exciting.  Nintendo announced killer exclusives like Monster Hunter 4 and Sony announced…more PS3/Vita games.  While I don’t think this is necessarily a bad move, I didn’t feel Sony blew me away either so to see their share value increase by over 1% was very weird to me.

What did you guys think of Sony’s announcements?  Do you feel confident in the short-term appeal of the Vita?  If so, what exactly are you guys looking forward to?

  1. I don’t think the rise or fall in stock value should be taken as anything too significant. I’m positive that Nintendo’s 3DS sales will pick up over the holidays, and the release of Monster Hunter will definitely increase its appeal in Japan. Plus with a Mario game hitting stores this Fall, I think that the machine will be a lot more popular. As for Sony, nothing that was announced really wowed me, but I am committed to getting one now…..even though all the games I want are ports/remakes for it. Persona 4: The Golden, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Dragon’s Crown, Street Fighter X Tekken, and Disgaea 3 caught my eye.

  2. As gamers we shouldn’t fear what investors say, but it is interesting just the same. If investors are worried about long-term profits from Nintendo it is curious, because what have they to fear? Keep in mind that investors are looking to make as much money as possible from the corporation so naturally they want Nintendo to have the perfect strategy going forward. They also have been putting pressure to get Nintendo games on iOS and Android because they know they would make a killing if that were to happen. So the bottom line is this, investors only care about the money and nothing else but as owners that’s their right. Our right is just to have fun and wonder why the investors are worried when we’re not ;)
