Jason_the_Mason commented on Nintendo of America's Damon Baker Explains the...:

The people in charge of marketing to the US and western markets are out of touch. The decision to release only the XL because in order to reach a wider demographic and make it easier to distinguish between types of 3DS/2DS is a nonsense excuse by an uncreative group of people who are incapable of solving problems.

They could have EASILY please everyone and not only achieved their stated objectives, but could have achieved them even better by...

1. Changing the idioti name of the "New 3DS" to something like "Super 3DS" or any number of names that would make it impossible to confuse it with the older 3DS models. Naming it "New 3DS" is the SOURCE of the problem with product confusion! The problem is the marketing team, NOT the market!
2. Release the smaller version for the core and non-core fans whp want customization! As stated, the new name would make it impossible for he consumer to confuse the products, so releasing the regular "New 3DS" would be no problem at all. And Nintendo would have the added bonus of not pissing off their core fans.
3. BONUS STRATEGY: Make faceplates for the XL version, because people can and do like both larger screens AND customization!

Why do they not understand this? What idiot is making the final choices? So annoying.

@Jazzer94 No, you don't get it. Value doesn't come from how long something sits on a shelf. Value is based on three things: perceived value, rarity, and demand. If everyone wants it (demand), and there is a limited number of them available (rarity), people are willing to pay a lot of money for them (value).

Consumer products do not have real value. They are assigned value by the people who want and need them. It is worth however much somebody is willing to pay for it.

Jason_the_Mason commented on Aonuma Confirms Zelda is Not the Skyward Sword:

Who in the world even thought up the idea that Zelda could be Skyward Sword/Master Sword? Does the sword's "human" manifestation look anything like Zelda? How does that make sense? It's not any of the sages or other fan-favourite characters either. It's a new character. It's the spirit of the Master Sword. We'll learn more about it when the game comes out, but it's pretty obvious who the sword is not.

@karuno: You find out Tetra is Zelda long before the end of the game, and anyone who has ever played a Zelda game readily guessed Tetra was Zelda from the beginning. Anyone who bothered looking at the pictures in Tetra's cabin on the ship should have figured it out pretty fast, too.
