81skywakeMon 6th May 2013 @Cheaptrick I think you read your own article in that other thread you posted wrong. Big difference between Nintendo "getting into smartphone games" because the portable gaming industry is "going sour" and what that article actually said. Basically they were rumours, likely true, that Nintendo were sending out a tool to phone devs to make it easy to port phone games to the Wii U eShop. Basically they want to make versions of games like Angry Birds, Robot Unicorn Attacks, Fruit Ninja, Doodle Jump, Cut the Rope, Temple Run etc on the Wii U eShop. It's a touch screen, it makes sense. Also contrary to your argument the 3DS is doing very well indeed. So far it has sold 30mill units and 78mill games (which I assume excludes digital) which is fairly reasonable. Better than the PSP did, almost as good as what the DS had done at this point in its life. No doubt that the casual market that the DS created with games like Brain Training has been eroded by smartphones and games like Draw Something, Candy Crush Saga and so on but the old market is still there. The one that existed before Brain Training, a market that was revived because of their market expansion during the DS days. There's a reason why Animal Crossing: New Leaf sold as well as it did in Japan. Lastly get off your high horse. You aren't the only person on here with a range of gaming options at their disposal. You aren't the only person who owns a PC, Wii U, 3DS, Smartphone, Tablet, PS3 and/or 360. You aren't the only person on here who is out of school/UNI. You are just the only person who thinks these things grant you some sort of god status. Here's a hint, they don't. Some good Aussie musics: King Gizzard, Pond, The Avalanches "Don't stir the pot" is a nice way of saying "they're too dumb to reason with"
