@thefakepsychic: Thank you, you provided actual information that may put my questions to bed... But why pull a shorter version of a trailer to a game that has been already been announced. This is a plausible explanation, but its a little strange if I may say so myself.

@truthtellah: I know that's my point!! What was it??!?!?!?! Aren't you curious?

OK I know and understand that this could be absolutely nothing, but I am still curious as to what it was.

On the PlayStation YouTube page they have a PS4 playlist Found Here. The first video listed on the page is now private. Does anyone know what is was? Was there a leaked PS4 game trailer that was pulled "made private" due to an accidental early upload?

Before I went all "conspiracy theory forum post guy" I did a little digging but came up dry. There are no web caches for that page recent enough to be any use, and I have not found any story about an accidental leak. Can anyone provide any clue as to what this video could be? Is there a way to sniff around and find meta data that could lead to a name or title of the video? Is there some method for looking past YouTube's private video wall, if not to watch obviously, but to at least find a title?

I have no expectations of finding anything of substance, yet I can't help but wonder what it was they made private.

@JasonR86: Ok granted Nintendo likes regurgitating old games. But this is not the Nintendo they used to be in the late 80s and 90s. With the decisions they have made they are now going to be playing the catch up game. The Wii U is not on par with the rest of the "next gen" consoles and the fact that we can say that without even seeing the competition is a bad thing. This is Nintendo we are talking about, they should be the leaders not the people releasing Batman Arkham City a year after its original release. If you get my point.

@Pudge: Thanks for the heads up.

@DarthOrange: While Microsoft isn't focused on games they have much better 3rd party support. So I'm sticking with them.

@ThePaleKing: Point taken Not a "remake" Upgrade. Perhaps my original wording was flawed.

@Hailinel: I'm saying that the fact that their new console is just now able to even play that game is an issue. its not that they are simply re-releasing an old game. Its that their old console couldn't play it in the first place, and the new console is just barely able to handle it. These are just symptoms of a bigger problem with Nintendo.

@Vinny_Says: No im 27 but i get your joke. my point was that my 8 year old self would never have imagined playing a Microsoft console.

@JasonR86: Yeah I saw some shots. Just a new coat of paint IMO. I agree that it looks nice but its the same game. Maybe they will throw in one or two Easter eggs, but its still Windwaker.

@Animasta: Yes, that's called making a game. That's what they hire people to do...make games. Not just regurgitate old ones.

Pertaining to the announcement of the Windwaker HD remake.

I understand the remake thing. Great. Love it. But they pick the game that was cell shaded and cartoonish. I love Windwaker. I played the crap out of that game. GBA attached and all. Yet an HD remake of a cartoonish game is just upscaling the cartoonish effects. There is nothing more to see in that, no hidden details that were missing because of a lack of horsepower. I personally would have preferred something like an OOT remake. Look how the 3DS game turned out, that game looks fantastic. Fully rendered with the power of the 3DS made it look stellar. We could actually see Links sword strap and belt . Why not do a 3D version of Link to the past? Can you all Imagine what that world would be like rendered in 3D and in HD? Personally I feel HD remakes are to fully realize the potential of a game that was missed on the orignial product. Like a directors cut of a film. I am not one of those angry people on the net screaming at the big N. I am just disappointed in the choices they have been making recently. By recently I mean the last 7 years. Misstep after misstep has them in a terrible position that they have no right being in. This is Nintendo, the company that used to rule the world in the 80s and 90s. The company that dropped the iconic "Gameboy" name from their handhelds, the same company that refuses to put out games on IOS, the company that abandoned the hardcore dedicated player for my grandpa. The company that named its console something that sounds like a child talking about a his favorite body part. This is why, at least for now, I am not buying a Nintendo console, but sticking with the Microsoft product. Something that my 8 year old self would never have imagined doing.

@Gaff said:

"I don't like this teend of HD remakes, I want this HD remake." Is this really what this argument boils down to?

Well... yeah it kind of is. (Note: this was my attempt at creating my first blog post and is purely my personal opinion.) Yet, my bigger point is that Nintendo has made major missteps Since the launch of the Wii, and I feel this is yet another. After a bit of thought I suppose that my apprehension toward the Windwaker "upgrade" may have been a bit reactionary, although I still disagree with their decision of choosing Windwaker to "upgrade" (as i have been corrected for saying remake). I would have rather seen a less cartoonish game with more details to show off in HD, perhaps Majora's mask since they just did OOT for the 3DS. My overall point is that this is a symptom of a larger problem with Nintendo.
