Nintendo Makes a Splash at 50+ Expo

September 8, 2008 -

Nintendo cozied up to the 50-and-older crowd last week at the AARP's Life at 50+ Expo in Washington, D.C.

Not unexpectedly, titles like Brain Age and Wii Bowling were on display.

Madworld trailer? Not so much...

Personally I think this whole "ZOMG N1TEND0 ABANDONZ US, IM SELLING MA WII" bandwagon is BS. I've actually got games on the Wii to look forward to including Wario Land:Shake It and Madworld.  In fact, I play both the Wii and 360 equally (SSBB on Wii and GTA4 on 360, but they're not the only games I have).

Besides, today's Casual crowd can later become Core in the future.

Re: Nintendo Makes a Splash at 50+ Expo

Meh the new demographic of gamers are the casual core they waff from media whores who'll buy anything and simi hardcore gamers that will buy anything, the trouble is when you buy anything the industry will crank out crap because it can.

Not calling the WII crappy no... calling the whole 8th generation crappy, when games were made for enthusiasts at least you got twice the entertainment  for the moeny now you'll lucky to break even...

I really wish publishes would slow down and put more polish/quality in their arse products...

 ugh, who cares about the 50+ crowd nintendo? what you should focus on is your hardcore crowd, this is why im going to sony =/

Re: Nintendo Makes a Splash at 50+ Expo

 50+ has money to burn. That's why everyone cares.

Re: Nintendo Makes a Splash at 50+ Expo

You don't really understand the nature of a market like this.   You see during the Gamecube era Nintendo tried to do what you are stating.  But for the last few generations, Nintnedo wasn't able to confront what Sony and Microsoft had in the bag with alot of what the hardcore gamers want.

But Nintendo has come back because they decided to try on a new approach with a different audiance.   I hear many 'hardcore' people shout at the Wii as a failure.   But that's a narrow prespective, I hardly considering several things of there that sells out continously really marked as a failure really.

Re: Nintendo Makes a Splash at 50+ Expo

But it's still ironic that, even though Nintendo's underwhelming E3 press conference was made for just that, the press ( and therefore they want to see big marketing ideas make their way to every joe American that reads the newspaper) it's only the hardcore, long-time Nintendo gamers that camp by their computer monitors to watch the conference.

Re: Nintendo Makes a Splash at 50+ Expo

either you're missing your sarcasm tags, or your missing the point.

If you're serious, consider this; for every "hardcore" person leaving nintendo because they feel jilted, there's 5 new people going to it because its welcoming to them.

Now consider that. Sony and Microsoft, who are intent on catering to the "hardcore" are having a steadily decreasing population, as to cater to them requires more expensive equipment which is reaching the point where it can't be affordable. Nintendo on the other hand, with being welcoming to all players and focusing on the new people, have a steadily increasing market.

Funny you should say that. Nintendo lost me with the N64/PS1 generation. They have actually won me back with this genereation.

Re: Nintendo Makes a Splash at 50+ Expo

I should also add, that the reason they lost me, was because the games I liked to play went to the PS1. NOw that I am older, have a job and a family, my gaming tastes have changed as well as my budget. I no longer have the time to play the types of games I use to nor the money to buy them. The Wii has brought to me something that fits my time, my budget and my family.

Sure I would like to see more story based games. They are coming and there are currently plenty available.

E. Zachary KnightAccording to this link, the pizzeria owner did not actually refuse anyone service. He was ask by a reporter if he would cater to a gay wedding and he answered in the negative. When that was published, the rants came rolling in.04/01/2015 - 8:17pm
Papa MidnightCorrection to my prior note, DiRT 3 Complete Edition does NOT replace DiRT 3 in user's libraries. But existing owners of DiRT 3 do get it for free.04/01/2015 - 8:00pm
Matthew Wilson@AE it could be like pokemo, but the tweet and the site makes it look like 2 different games. tbf I do not know Japanese.04/01/2015 - 7:29pm
MechaCrashInteresting how YouTube comments are universally acknowledged to be cesspits of idiocy where no coherent thought can survive, until a woman closes them. Then it's CENSORSHIP and being AFRAID OF DEBATE.04/01/2015 - 7:29pm
Andrew EisenThat's... weird. The Direct made it sound like this was an organic part of a single game.04/01/2015 - 7:08pm
Matthew Wilsonapparently the 2 sides of the story in the new fire emblem game is 2 difrent games in japan, and we are getting both combined. https://twitter.com/RPGSite/status/583415770744393729/photo/104/01/2015 - 7:00pm
MonteAE: there are pizzaria's that also make italian food which you can order in bulk to cater parties. Also, google pizza wedding; cause it is pretty cool04/01/2015 - 6:50pm
ConsterThe vast majority of (if not all) 1-star reviews are angry rants about its policy. 'Jesus said to love thy neighbor, assholes' (paraphrased) seems very common.04/01/2015 - 6:49pm
Matthew WilsonI did not check it out personaly. I only read a arctlice about it, but it does seem to be in a lets just say a very mean way.04/01/2015 - 6:41pm
Andrew EisenTrashed in a fair way or are people lying about cockroach infestations and stuff?04/01/2015 - 6:24pm
Matthew Wilsonwell they also are getting trashed on yelp too. given the number of people that use it, I suspect they will lose allot of business even if they change their mind.04/01/2015 - 6:19pm
Andrew EisenIt's a pizza joint. It caters weddings? Really? I mean, that's cool. Really cool, even. But seriously?04/01/2015 - 6:02pm

MonteYa i remember when she first started her videos with the comment sections open. There was A LOT of vile harrassment to shift through to get to any REAL debate. Youtube is a TERRIBLE debate forum. Can't blame her for not wanting to deal with harrasment.04/01/2015 - 5:49pm
