I stay away from phones. I only use a very cheap model (£10) to make calls.

Sure, I would enjoy all the other features that the expensive phones provide but I don't want to go down that path. Its much cheaper being ignorant sometimes than being informed.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

I am not a bit surprised over this. I remembered the early days of Super Nintendo. I recalled my local Newspaper even made a big deal out the Super Nintendo not being backwards compatible to play Nes games.

Also find it funny they think exchanging mail to other members of your town (virtual not real characters) is dangerous

It just shows that instead of actually researching such things, they much prefer to show it as breaking news and hope that they dont get called out on all their mistakes...

It's ironic that they focused that story on a Nintendo game when Nintendo goes to such measures to make sure those things don't happen. Why not go and report on some PC MMO? I mean, it can sometimes be ridiculous how secure Nintendo makes Wii online games. Look at Mario Kart Wii (and 7): before an online race, you can talk to fellow racers, but you can only select pre-written words such as "go easy on me!" or "good luck!". It can get painfull sometimes.

I know, right! The media has always been so nieve and never properly researches stuff. It ANNOYS me!
Just look at a report from The Sun, a British newspaper, who gave a report recently on "10 reasons not to buy Wii U".

Can you recall any of those reasons? I'd love to get a laugh out of it.

edit

Nvm, I found 5 reasons....

1) It'll be outdated within a year
2) Vita masquerading as the GamePad
3) The threat to all consoles - mobile gaming
4) DS + Wii = fail?
5) It's dramatically over-priced

Now, excuse me while I find a box of tissues. I'm laughing so hard I'm crying.

Okay I can't watch the video but from what I read in the thread post. No wonder Nintendo is so sensitive, yikes! I know for a fact 90s parents were weird and had a few bolts missing, LOL.

I absolutely hate it when parents are naive and think that you can continue to play the new games on older systems. Back when I had a gameboy, my parents didn't get me a new handheld until DS Lite, because they were always like you don't need a new one because you have this "Gameboy"
I also hate it when it is the other way around, where in this case the new Wii Mini is coming out, older people think it is a new system and they get it for there children/grandchildren only to find the child very disappointed LOL!
