What you're saying doesn't make a lot of sense. So yeah, ask yourself that question. Why would Nintendo refuse to take your money as an owner of the non-new SKU of the 3DS? They're a business. They wouldn't refuse to sell something unless the quality was sub-par. GameOtaku wrote: with all new models being $150-200 since NoA is idiotic in only having xl models available for retail. The non-XL SKUS didn't sell. They launched both SKUs of the New 3DS in Japan and Australia, the non-XL SKU sat on shelves. So how stupid of Nintendo to silently discontinue SKUs that didn't sell. By your rationale they would have been far better of mass producing SKUs people didn't want to buy. I'm glad you're not running the show at Nintendo, they'd be bankrupt in a week.

Blaster Master Zero and Shovel Knight for example are in the same style as SNES games and games like Mario World and Link to the Past are 25 years old so by logic they should actually run better on newer, more powerful hardware. Emulation is not the same as running the game natively. Did you actually read any of what was linked?

So it really does depend on the person. As I've never played most of the SNES library is be none the wiser as to how "accurate" it really is. Well no, it's not a subjective thing. Either a game can be emulated well while maintaining a solid framerate or it can't. The Wii U has several orders of magnitudes more power than the 3DS. It's not at all the same thing.
