Apple Well, this just got interesting. There's been a bit of a backlash over Apple's Final Cut X Pro, which is considered a step down from previous versions by many professional videographers, as they claim it lacks countless features - leading to the nickname 'iMovie Pro'. Former Shake product designer and former Apple employee Ron Brinkmann has now weighed in on the situation. His advice to professionals? Don't rely on companies like Apple.

Nintendo is now making a play for the HC market again

Rumors - Wii U is faster then xBox 360 1,5 times.
Carmack's rumor - new xBox will be faster 10 times then current one.

So go ahead - buy Wii U expecting for hardcore games (aka stuff that only people older then 12 could grasp), sure you'll get Battlefield 3, Timesplitters 4, Crysis 3, four years passes - 8th gen consoles will have another 6+ and you won't have hardcore games for those 6+ years.

Yeah nintendo aiming for hardcore market... If Metroid 17, Super Mario 37 or Zelda 41 is enough for your hardcore needs - buy the Wii U. ;)

There there. Many of us use a PC for the "hardcore" stuff anyways. The Wii is simply a great fun console to play together with family and friends and a stellar one if you are into platform gaming.

But wasn't this article about something completely different?

Wii U comes out in 2012 - when do the next versions of XBox and PlayStation come out? Timing matters here, for any of your comments to hold true.

Additionally, if the current rumors (of 2015 for the next XBox) are correct, that means Nintendo should just be a year or two out for their normal product refresh - with a 3 year window where their hardware is the most capable.

BTW, I don't think "core" gamers and "adult" gamers are the same. Core gamers seem to favor violence, boobs and conformity above all else (all the countless CoD games and clones, and anything with sex in it). Adult gamers are already sticking it out on Wii with the likes of Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, and Mario - all of which they can play with their kids. Adult gamers favor challenge and substance over everything else.

Games with violence and boobs - I don't know why they became known as "adult" games, they really should be called "male puberty" games, since they mostly appeal to teenage boys. When I was a teenager, I really appreciated Duke Nukem and Mortal Kombat. How time changes things. :-)

Also, there is a huge overlap with "male puberty" and "core" gamers - "casual" gamers often just means girls (with some other smaller segments mixed in).
