- The growing cost of development for games on next-gen platforms will increase demand from publishers to require new games to be deployed on many platforms.
- Increased cross-platform development will mean less money for optimizing a new game for any particular platform.
- As a result, with the exception of in-house titles developed by the console manufacturers themselves, none of the three major platforms (Xbox 360, PS3 and Nintendo Revolution) will end up with games that look significantly different from each other, nor will any platform show any real "edge" over the others. Many games will be written to a "lowest common denominator" platform, which would be two threads running on a single CPU core and utilizing only the GPU.

So keeping this in mind I thought I'd review a game that stole many of my days and nights way back when (and even now when I get the NES out the attic). So where is the mushroom loving Italian plumber when the mushroom kingdom is in need? Enter Mario!
