@Warbeard I disagree and I wasn't saying release everything at once, rather that there should be 10-12 maps at launch like with other shooters. Also, I feel ranked battles should be unlocked as soon as you reach level 10 rather than as soon as "x" number of people reach level 10 where "x" is completely unknown.

@Superryanworld The key thing about consoles are initial impressions once they're revealed for the first time. Like there's bound to be many people out there who still think the Wii U is an addon to the Wii and not a successor. The Xbox One sadly had the initial impressions based on Don Mattrick's horrible "online only" logic and so that's where the confusion arises.

Had Phil Spencer been in charge since the beginning of the Xbox One instead of Don Mattrick, we would've seen the PS4 issues that PT caused 2 years earlier.

@bouncer0304 "The fact that it handled so many players so well can only mean that come launch it'll play online just as well as Mario Kart 8."

The problem with this statement is Mario Kart 8 didn't play well online in the launch window, I still remember when leaving a lobby meant everyone would get disconnected!

@mjc0961 I disagree with your view on preordering, well only physical preordering to be more precise. Pretty much everything Nintendo makes nowadays is very rare so if you don't preorder then you just won't get it and it's been like this ever since the Wii U did a huge sales flop in 2012.

@Shinnos Interesting, you got a great experience because of Nintendo UK's mistake. The testfire was midnight CET (Central European Time) so this mistake is a result of Nintendo UK and Nintendo of Europe's twitter messages always being identical.

My biggest issue is the poor communication once the extended hour was present, do you really think everyone is going to constantly try and search for a match with constant disconnect issues for a whole hour? I really hope sales aren't affected much by that first hour...

@ZenTurtle I was saying that the translations justify Roy being in Smash rather than the other way around. Think about it, how many playable Smash characters are from Japan exclusive games? In 64 there were 0, in Melee there were 2 (Marth and Roy), in Brawl there were 2 (Marth and Lucas) and in 3DS/Wii U there was 1 (Shadow Dragon remake was released a few months after Brawl so Marth doesn't count anymore hence Lucas as DLC is the only one). This leaves Roy and Lucas as the only Smash characters that are only in Japan exclusives.

Now Nintendo of course teased Mother 3 in the digital event intro "Come on Reggie, give us Mother 3!" and while whether that tease means it's going to be revealed this E3 can be continuously argued over, Lucas is confirmed as DLC. If the rumours are true and we do get Roy and Ryu then you could argue backwards that Binding Blade is coming.

The blame should be solely directed towards Nintendo fans that didn't buy Lost World, especially as 2013 was a lame year for Wii U in terms of quantity. Third parties on a Nintendo console again proved itself to be a lost cause, I don't blame SEGA for wanting to get out of that exclusivity deal ASAP.

Amiibo please die already, well either that or bring lots of Lucina and Robin stock! I figured I'd tap my Ike and Marth amiibo into Codename STEAM as I have them only to find out that permanent empty slots are added for the amiibo you don't have when you tap one of them to the touch screen. That means you will never have a complete roster menu until you own all 4 rare amiibo!

@rjejr If they are planning a amiibo game they would probably have Wii U and 3DS system updates which has a storage feature for amiibo data. You want to play amiibo land but have level 50 FPs for Smash? Simple, go to the settings menu and store the Smash data on the Wii U and then they're available to use for amiibo land.

@ricklongo That's not what I'm getting at, all it would take is huge first party things coming near the Yooka-Laylee release date and sales would suffer on Wii U. The game is meant to be coming out October 2016 (at least thats what the kickstarter rewards suggest), if the NX releases in November 2016 (as an example) then the game's in trouble.
