Pachinko (and by extension Pachislot) revenue for this year was down 50% compared to last year

SNK Playmore is leaving the Pachislot business entirely to focus on game development

Let Metal Gear die, the series is over and if they brought it back it won't be the same without Kojimbo.

No shit, its the same people who got older. It was one fucking generation of people who allowed themselves to get bled dry by pachinko.

No, you're not. 2/3s of all Castlevanias sold since 1996 where not on Nintendo. You are the one moving goalposts. Most people do not think of Nintendo when they think Castlevania, just like SMT, Final Fantasy or Metal Gear.

They did before 1997. You know, before you were born.

>Metal Gear

That's because only four games were ever on Nintendo systems, one of which was a bastardized port of the first game, one of which was a non-canon sequel to said bastardized port which nobody wants to remember ever existing, one of which is a non-canon sequel to MGS (which was actually a brilliantly made game, but I digress) and the last of which is a remake widely hated by the fandom.

The fact is that 1/3 is not the "vast majority" nor "Most". Most, the VAST majority and greatest amount of Castlevanias have been bought since 1996 on non-Nintendo machines.

Deal.

>Most, the VAST majority and greatest amount of Castlevanias have been bought since 1996 on non-Nintendo machines.

Even ignoring the fact that a simple google search has already proven you wrong, me ask you this:

How many Castlevania games were exclusive to Sony?

How many were exclusive to Microsoft?

How many to Sega?

So yeah, Nintendo is the one with the most Castlevania games.

See this is where your argument falls apart. You're just an old jaded nostalgiafag stuck in the distant past who hates anything released after the 20th century and anyone who thinks otherwise is "the casual babby cancer killing muh vidya geams", so the quality of those games doesn't really matter since nothing will ever be good enough for you because you simply don't want it to be.

He ran the franchise into the ground and almost bankrupted konami in the process. How does that make you feel, dipshit?
MGS is great and all but it's not the only franchise they had under their belt. How many of the other franchises were forced to be put in permanent hiatus because of Kojima's over expenditure? Who's to say the studio couldn't afford to develop new gradius, contra, castlevania, silent hill, etc. Because they had to use the budget for Kojima's vanity projects? He was a cancer and had to be excised.
And there's absolutely no proof that they're focusing exclusively on pachinko machines. That's just one side of their corporation, and you're focusing on some clickbait report made by some french rag.

Comparing the best Metroid (Super) to the FPS Metoids is a bit like comparing apples to oranges.

However I think we can all agree that a true sequel to Super Metroid is the best course of action. Not Force Fed "Metroid".

One of the bigger things that blew my mind is that the legendary gunsmith mechanic was not included in MGO3.

Like despite how I felt about V, that whole tinkering thing was probably one of the most fun things to do in recent vidya years.

Then they let the team go, so any chances of new maps / game modes / weapons / pc version will never see the light of day (not that they were there to begin with though). I find it hard to muster contempt for a company that isn't EA but god damn they're trying.

Hardware and software market is just like that, idiots. It goes up and down, just check EA's stock values. It fluctuates left and right. Sega remained in the red for 10 years straight and they're still on the market, Sony stayed on the red for seven years straight and they're still on the market etc.

The console market bubble happens from time to time, it dies off and comes back. Same with pachinko and slots in general, same with mobile and facebook games.

Stop replying to this thread like a bunch of fucking retards.
>>
>>315333452
So MGO3 is dead right?
>>
>>315333391
The domestic Japanese console market is dead, everything sells poorly there and competing against big game industries in the West is risky and most of the time not worth the money. It's called tactical withdrawing.

Like Sega did focusing on arcades, now they're turning into profit they're thinking back into maybe developing console games again like in the old times.

Just like actual games, there's good and bad pachinkos. Some are completely rigged, some are not.

And there's the ones like Hokuto no Ken with videos that advance the story the more you play. Pachinko can be one hell of a drug.

BTW "SNK" doesn't exist anymore, it's just Playmore using its name for quick cash grabs.
