In RE2, Leon is a rookie cop who is showing up to his first day at work. While he does have his training from the police academy, he isn't field tested at all. He doesn't go full supercop until RE4. And Claire is the biker sister of a supercop, but I don't feel like she became an unbelievable character until I saw her use an exploding fuel tank to clear a room of Umbrella dudes in a John Woo moment...

Poor Steve deserved better.

Nintendo is releasing Mario Kart for mobile devices,
if they continue with this I won't be surprised if they over take Sony as the #1 videogame industry leader.

For the fun of it I looked up the Market Cap for Nintendo and Sony, they are 50B and 70B relatively. This does not sound right, Sony is so much larger of a corporation than Nintendo. If anyone understands stocks please do explain.

I don't know much about stocks (although all the mystery still surrounding the PSV's hardware and launch price, as well as the good previews of the Switch Lite and several recent Nintendo games may be contributing to that a little?), but I do know that Sony's video game sector is frequently the most or only profitable part of their business these days. These days, they're more a video game company who happens to make more hardware and movies sometimes, rather than the other way around.

Market cap is the total value of a company’s stock (e.g., 8 million shares x $10 per share stock price = $80 million market cap). Very generally, and in theory, share value is the present value of all future dividends from a stock, and to pay dividends, a company must be profitable. Accordingly, size is less determinative of market cap and share value than profitability and growth potential, and if as I suspect, investors view Nintendo as a more profitable business than Sony with more growth potential, it’s market cap might approach Sony’s despite its much smaller size. (Think of it this way...which would you rather have? A 1/1,000,000 interest in a small company that’s making a ton of money or a 1/1,000,000 interest in a giant conglomerate teetering on bankruptcy?)

I hope that helps!

Patridge is completely right.

Sony USED to be so much bigger, but look at what they were profitable on.

Music.
CD's.
Movies.
Televisions.
Stereos.
Electronics.

All of these have shrank considerably in the last 20 years or so. Sony does some business elsewhere, but they make most of their money off the Playstation brand.

@forlorn drifter: I don't think its heresy to not like RE1, I enjoyed it for sure but don't know that I would want to replay it now. Are you playing the ps1 original or the gamecube remake?

@peirot: Code veronica is the only mainline RE game I have never played, I was actually considering starting it yesterday but given that I wound up buying RE2 remake I will have to put it on the backburner again, I definitely need to play it, i have heard great things and am a huge fan of the series.

@pook

It's the GameCube remake. Next time I have a pull in my gaming I'm going to try again, but it just wasn't doing anything for me at that moment.
