An animated...Mario movie?
Why do people think that the leak means that Sony will just 180 out of all its plans? That's moronic.
"Oh no now they all know what we were planning to do. Instead of use that to build hype, let's just blow ut all up and start over! We wouldn't want to look predictable!"
>A recent hack of Sony Pictures
>leaking thousands of emails that contain sensitive information
>the likely culprit is North Korea
It's a hoax. North Korea is trying to create chaos and destroy the Glorious Western Video Game Industry.
Yes, Kim Jong Un thinks just saying a movie is being made means they will make the movie.
No, he does not realize those companies are based in Japan not America.
>Mario movie gets made
>sells like hotcakes
>Nintendo decides to make a Wario movie
>Wario makes a team to help him, and
Ashleyis one of the members
Well, in the short term it means they'll probably make new games to tie in.
But more importantly, we're closer than ever to getting an animated NiGHTS!
He's the primary reason why the ASM films didn't do as well as they could've. Both the cast and crew of both films have made it clear they would've been exponentially better if it weren't for Arad and other producers demanding certain changes. Hell, Arad could be blamed for SM3's overcrowding.
You think in a world where Capcom doesn't give a shit about Megaman and Rare has been beaten down to the point where they beg Microsoft just to make something that isn't Avatar Sports (and are refused), that Sony even remembers Nights?
>tfw Marvel couldn't get Spidey to show up in Captain America 3
Still, if it's not going to bet about the Hero Registration program, i have no idea what the would do with that title.
And if they do use the HRP for the plot, then my autism will be pretty pissed since the MCU is missing a shitload of things like the interdimensional prison, FF, the X-men and also Spidey.
uh, sorry, how is this NOT fucking awesome??
I'll give Nintendo at least a week or so before they make Sony stop.
I'm okay with this.
I'm not okay with Avi Arad.
Maybe Nintendo will do a repeat of the 1990s and pull the project from Sony at the last minute, especially if they look to the fan reaction of the news. Nintendo could easily pay off any fines that might be incurred by pulling out, too.
Are people really surprised that Nintendo would choose Sony to work with adapting films?
Why not choose Disney? They seem to have a better understanding of "family entertainment." And since Nintendo is often dubbed the Disney of Videogames, it seems like a better match. Plus Disney had Nintendo characters in Wreck It Ralph, the companies aren't strangers to each other.
Disney is expensive as fuck and are literally evil. Like, if Satan ran an animation company evil. Sony is, well, also evil but demonstrably less than Disney. Plus, and this is a big one, Sony is japanese. Japanese companies really REALLY like to work with each other if they can, seeing as the mutual cultural understand is there. Ninty and Sony can hash out legal details in Japan and then dictate what the studio needs to do. It's without question the best option for them, plus hey, Sony is actually kinda relevant again! (for a short time).
Because you can only get people to buy Ps4 under the premise that you at least aren't Microsoft for so long.
Sony is going to sell the Playstation brand to Nintendo with in this decade.
My dad works at Nintendo
Sly Pooper sucks, it is really out dated furry garbage from the early 90's. The last game was the final nail in the coffin, if Sony wasn't retarded they would get Crash Bandicoot rights back unless Activison is asking millions for it even if they will never use it again because they are [TRIGGER WARNING]
Should a Mario movie have little dialog, like in the main platformer games? Or have lots of dialog like the RPG series?
>Using trigger warnings unironically
I was on the fence about your opinion before, but now I know for sure
You joke but that's not completely out of the question. In fact it's not even all that crazy. I mean Nintendo would be the only guys in the biz with the cash to spend on the Playstation brand and SCE Japan. Now of course someone like Amazon could make a much bigger offer, but if they actually care enough to keep Playstation in vidya hands, it's either Nintendo or Microsoft. Or one of those Chinese companies that fund those Korean grindan' mmos, which would be the worst case scenario.
Well I unironically got suspended for the same comment under the same context. Thought it would help.
Regardless of that the content still stands, Sly Cooper doesn't holds up, it is like remaking Sonic SatAM again. The worst part is that the last game had a pretty bad dialogue, and bad gameplay to match, and movies based on game franchise do have a terrible, and saddening history.
R&C doesn't look promising either, it is literally a Ps4 title without quick time events.
And what would the movie be about? Just keep it simple and have Bowser kidnap Peach? Or something more?
>Why do people think that the leak means that Sony will just 180 out of all its plans?
If anything, the leak showed us that the sony top brass are absolute morons who have no idea what they're doing.
Investors want MS to pull out (Insert sex joke or your choice here) from games, and tablets because tablets are literally cheap toys for children, and the elderly. Investors want Ms to go back to enforcing Windows on every device in existence and remind people why they could do worse so they don't think of switching to any free OS... in their defense Apple is a shit.
Anyhow MS isn't likely, Google, and Amazon could however and that is fucking terrifying. Amazon can't get their stupid fucking tablets to gain momentum, and Google is just as bad as Chinese companies investing on Korean MMOs. Sure Chinese companies might turn the PS brand into the successor to the Super Mega Son IV, but Google would turn it into PieDiePie: The Experience featuring classics like Minecraft and Flappy Bird as exclusives.
If Nintendo bought the PS Brand that would be the best possible outcome, outside of Sony miraculously recovering, but if life has demonstrated us something time and again without a fail is that everything will turn out as bad as you think or worse.
Nintendo tripled it's profits this year. Sony will once again lose billions. Although I long for those PS2 halcyon days, their end is nigh. It's only a matter of time. But hey, if Nintendo gets SCE Japan the Last Guardian might actually come out!
Wii U exclusive.
>but if life has demonstrated us something time and again without a fail is that everything will turn out as bad as you think or worse.
M&L are common plumbers out of luck, they stumble into the Mushroom Kingdom by fate, accident, magic.
A LOZ like prophecy says the men in red and green will save the day. Mario and Luigi each get a glimpse of Peach and Daisy, and for plot reasons they cannot go back until they finish their quest. The Toads and Toadette help them out along the way.
Both step up to the challenge ahead, and save the Princesses, Bowser is really intimidating, with just a healthy pinch of humor to make it him look threatening, but not evil.
A pretty straight forward, by the numbers story about the unlikely heroes who save the day. An anon mentioned cloudy with a chance of meatballs, just make it like that, and it would be perfect.
Probably not the traditional Peach get's kidnapped story. I assume they'd do something with more complexity for a full length feature. Nothing on the level of Paper Mario (unfortunately) but I see everyone in the main cast playing a role. Especially my main nigga Bowser.
Fuck that, I just want Nintendo to get the rights to Soul sacrifice, Pursuit Force, Socom, Syphon Filter, and Loco Roco. You know all the games Sony had that made the Ps2 such a great console.
>Published by Nintendo
by Platinum / Retro
I could just die right after playing that, life would be extremely disappointing afterwards.
>Especially my main nigga Bowser.
I love it so much when some greater evil shows up and Bowser teams up with Mario.
Sony has been hemorrhaging money since the ps3 era, so I wouldn't be surprised if sony might try to get on nintendeo's good side should things get any worse.
At least John leguizamo is still alive!
Do you know where Sony makes the most enormous bulk of it's profits? Insurance. TVs and mobile are hemorrhaging money and any rational CEO would have sold them/spun them off by now. The PlayStation brand could easily be spun off/sold as well. I mean just because you buy a PS4 doesn't mean you buy a Sony TV. The games division makes a tiny tiny sliver of the profits for Sony, and before this baffling PS4 sales phenomenon, the games division was losing money for a long time. It's definitely within the realm of possibility.
Their Tv's are expensive and possibly not worth it, and from personal experience all their other devices suck as well, and they do not have enough studios to actually get games done, they closed most of them, reason why they get times exclusives instead of games.
They still got Sony Music, Tv, and Film. Sony could survive on that.
>Because you can only get people to buy Ps4 under the premise that you at least aren't Microsoft for so long.
Seriously. Going full on Microsoft with the PS4, complete with Xbox Live with paywalls for online play and whatever else. Was really bad move for Sony.
Even if you argue that it "worked" when Microsoft did it. Going ahead and imitate them is not smart.
Microsoft did it first. People know Microsoft for this. It's what people expect.
Sony stood out from Microsoft by not being Microsoft. And lots of people were drawn towards Sony for how they stood out.
But if Sony looks the same as Microsoft? Why would they expect anyone to go to them instead of Microsoft when they look the same?
Granted that Microsoft's ideas for the Xbox One and this generation was beyond ridiculous and awful. Sony trying be Microsoft was really just a move for them to lose identity.
>let them do it.
Okay MAG was good, I give you that, but Retro or Platinum can't literally do no wrong (Except Korra, but let's be honest even the show is a shit), sorry if I sound like a Platinum cock sucking fanboy, but I see something on the likes of Metal Gear meets Vanquish. If Retro handles it they could do something like Perfect Dark again (Part of Rare staff went with Retro, just saying).
Only if this is Bowser's theme in the movie.
I was more thinking that they can't sell the "Sony" brand to a competitor when they still sell "Sony" brand products.
But then again, I suppose they could possibly sell the "Playstation" brand.
DON'T YOU WEH FAGGOTS EVER SHUT UP?
I am going to say it now that I am not on /v/ but MS was trying with the Kinect to gain an identity so they became something more than a Halo console, but I am not sure how shitposting won in the end that even MS dropped it, I was actually looking forward to Kinect 2.0 integration with every xbone title given all the good things that kinect could accomplish, check kinect labs etc, alas never was, and MS lost their way and now are betting on the "entertainment" area, basically focusing on Halo and that alone. Halo tv shows, media, books, games, the works.
Now the later is not bad considering Halo CAN be successfully invade other genres, and still be good, but it feels Ms Game Studios lost their drive when the Kinect was dropped, so it is now more Halo. It is like when the Excel guys were told they could not include Easter Eggs anymore, it sucks for everyone.
What is worse is that my niggas at SSI worked on the Kinect, along with the Fury3 / Terminal Velocity guys. So yeah, fuck kids with their Call to minecraft indie bullshit, fuck /v/, and fuck everyone. They have blown it all up, damn them all to hell.
>M&L are out of work at the beginning of the movie by an unseen competition
>Their unseen competitors are Wario & Waluigi
>In the sequel W&W are envious of M&L found fortune and become the antagonists for the sequels
Would the movie try and explain the crazy power ups?
