^On the eShop? Last I checked, Nintendo's online services don't exactly do the best anywhere, considering how loads of developers failed to reach 6000 sales on WiiWare, the DSi Shop was dismissed as shovelware only (and screw those ignorant people. Now I'll never get my X-Scape sequel), and very few games seem to have lots of ratings on the eShop.

And that's why NOJ and NOE are freaking awesome compared to NOA, also the whole 500 points thing for the Wii they did way back when.

NOA is a bunch of cheapskates who don't realize what causes more sales. Discounts would be nice, nobody with logic is asking for them to charge half the price of a physical copy for the same game.

You sure about Europe? Seems pretty baren compared to the US and the Eshop

You're right. Nintendo should totally force the devs to undercut retail and the iOS app store. Then, when all those devs are bankrupted/ refuse to work on Nintendo's platforms, we can find something new to whine about.

Because at least they'll sell 6000 copies then. Mabye.

Btw, their prices are normally higher. IRONY!

Also, what the heck is the last part supposed to mean?

A. Dude, please stop making sarcastic rebuttals to my (emphasis on pretty much mine alone) posts, especially when half of your responses are either "wut?" or some terrible justificiation.

B. Higher prices doesn't mean you shouldn't have discounts. If that's the case, then all those big name worldwide chains must be doing it wrong.

C. As in NOA sucks when it comes to incentives. We didn't get free points for internet linking (something lacking with Wiis overall) like the other regions did. We haven't gotten a single sale since August.

Perhaps you forgot about that Wii U deluxe promotion where you get $5 in credit for every large purchase?

And yet developers are praising it for both the 3DS and Wii U? I'll believe you if Jools Wattsham wasn't so keen on supporting it (among others).
