I think the physical console games are relatively niche because they are very simple to learn and quite challenging to master. The thing about physical console games is that they are also very easy to overlook because they are so simple to learn.
The biggest difference between console and console emulation games is how easy it is to master. I believe that physically modded games are much harder to master because, unlike console games, they require you to learn complex game mechanics that require a lot of time to master. That’s why you see many emulation games being made for the PlayStation 2. The biggest barrier to entry for a physical modded game is the number of people who know how to handle the emulator’s CPU.
This is a huge misconception. Console emulation is the way to go. Some games (particularly modern shooters) can be emulated using the same tools that are used to make a Nintendo game. But the biggest barrier to entry for a physical modded game is the number of people who know how to handle the emulators CPU.
I can’t explain to you how many people don’t understand emulation because they can’t tell the difference between a CPU that’s a 2.1K game and one that’s a 1.4K game.
This is the same problem that people with CPUs that are faster than a modern home desktop computer have. The fact is that most consoles are based on the PC architecture, so emulators are required to run these. It comes down to a balance of emulation speed and CPU power. The faster CPUs are, the slower emulation has to be.
Personally, I think that consoles are a niche market. There are so many other platforms that can play these games that its easier to make money with them. Although console games have been around for a while, they weren’t the main focus of the industry due to hardware limitations. In the early 2000s, consoles really started to take off. Microsoft released the Xbox, Sony released the Playstation, Nintendo released the Gamecube, and Microsoft released the XBox360 and XBoxOne.
That is until the Wii came along and made gaming on the cheap more accessible. Nintendo had to quickly catch up to this booming industry by releasing Mario and Zelda and then they had to release a console that was able to play those games at a reasonable price. The Wii was able to do this with a cheaper price point, but it did take a few years for Nintendo to recover.
The Wii came out in 2005, and it came with a lot of the Wii’s best features. It had a built-in Gamecube controller, a motion-sensor-controlled Wii remote, and it had a built-in copy of the DS. It’s actually the first console to include all three features on the same console, and the first to be able to play games on the cheap. The console was also the first to include a built-in broadband modem.
All of these features, and more, made it one of the most popular consoles of all time. It also led to the creation of a number of “console games” that weren’t console games at all, but were instead based on the Wii. These games included Mario Kart Wii, Mario Kart 8, Wii Sports Resort, and even Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (yes, you can play on the Wii).
But it’s also true that the console was a bit of a niche itself. The first games to be ported to the console were a number of fighting games, including Mortal Kombat, as well as the first Zelda title, The Legend of Zelda. This led to a number of other fighting games being ported to the console, including Mortal Kombat 3, Mortal Kombat 4, and Mortal Kombat 2.
