As an official little old lady, I hate this crap. I've loved video games since Pong. My kids were the envy of the neighborhood because they had all the systems other than the Virtual Boy because I wanted to play them, too.

Who do they think have been playing games the last 3 decades: foetuses?

Now everyone get off my damn lawn: I'm rockin' MM on my 3ds xl.

@ShadyKnights

The only venom spewed on this thread has come from those who are happy with the release of the N3DS XL and feel everyone else should be too. Many have mocked and belittled those who dare want something different.

Even those posters really upset at nintendo's decision who have said they won't buy anything more from them are not spewing venom or name calling. As has been pointed out numerous times, nintendo doesn't owe consumers anything. The flipside of that coin is tho many of us have purchased their products for decades and feel a sense of loyalty, we owe nintendo nothing.

@NodesforNoids

That is the biggest load of poop I've read in a long time. I don't want to elevate myself over anyone, I just want a unit that's kinder to arthritic hands. Btw: if by lesser markets you mean the rest of the world that got all options, then it makes no sense at all.

What the hell does public transport have to do with this? Since most in NA rely on cars, why would we care about people seeing our 'childish' handhelds?

Tbh, I think nintendo forgets that the internet exists. Back in the day, we wouldn't know about new consoles/games til we got our copy of Nintendo Power in the mail. Even then we didn't always find out about regional differences.

They don't get that information is instantaneous now. They love their secrecy and coyness, but much of it just won't work today. I am a little old lady, a grandma, and I am way more with the times than they are.

Now I have to admit that I am an extremely cool little old lady and grandma, but c'mon: these people get paid a lot of money to make decisions and they seem to be shooting themselves in the foot a lot, lately. You need to spend money to make money, sometimes. Hunkering down with protectionism isn't gonna impress today's consumers. We have easy access to global information. I don't think that makes ninty too happy.

@Platypus101

I apologise for coming across as harsh to you. I am just tired of being told I have no place being discouraged by ninty's decision. The name calling and condescension in this thread is over the top, imho. Whinging about whinging is taking the focus away from why some of us legitimately want the N3DS over the XL.

Well, it's all moot because you don't seem to know about the main differences between the 3DS and the N3DS. I have stated numerous times that I don't give a rat's about the faceplates, but you keep bugging about them if it makes you feel better. That and the buzzword 'entitlement'. Lol.

I also don't care if you are or aren't getting anything. What does it have to do with me? Nada. Which is how it should be.

@Platypus101. ok... So because Europe has cars (namely transport trucks) I'm in the market for, and you're happy with your choice of car, I should reasonably expect you to help me campaign to bring those models over from Europe?

No, it's more 'since justinr is happy with his choice of car you should not even want the transport trucks available in Europe'.

My, what a lot of self-righteous, condescending snark against those of us who want the N3DS rather than the XL. Insult after insult. People whinging about people whinging. But from the stratosphere of superior intellect so it's ok. Lol.

Nintendo doesn't owe me anything. Neither do I owe them anything. I have bought every iteration they've release since the NES except for the virtual boy and the WiiU. Multiple units due to having 2 kids. I will limp along with my circlepad-less original blue XL. I will vote with my wallet. I will voice my opinion of poor decisions on websites dedicated to nintendo.

I will continue to laugh at holier-than-thous that seem to feel if they are happy everyone should be. Those that feel they are entitled to tell others 'it fits in my pants!' Those offering candy pacifiers. Those who feel being upset somehow takes our intellect off wars, IS, and the myriad of problems facing today's world.

Good grief.

"You said 'we are brats whinging(*whining) for what we can't have.' No argument with you there, your words, not mine."

I said 'YOU THINK we are brats...yada, yada...'

Makes quite a bit of difference, doesn't it? If you are going to quote someone at least do so in a way that doesn't alter the intended meaning. Less editing of your own posts needed that way.

Obviously you don't get that I want face plates, because I said I don't. The 3ds xl sold better all over. Shelf space isn't any more spacious in the UK. Since the original 3DS is personnae non grata anyway, the excuses are bs.

QoL software, being told in games to take a break, being told we are too stupid to differentiate different hardware, being told basically what we want...oh yeah: Ninty thinks they are our daddy.

You said 'and would probably be another thing the core would complain about,'

You believe we are brats whinging for what we can't have. How long have you worked for Nintendo, cause your attitude is right in line with theirs.

Just because your hands get cramped doesn't mean everyone's does. Just because you aren't interested in the N3DS over the XL doesn't mean some of us aren't.

See how that works?

I don't give a rat's about the face plates. I want the smaller unit with the bigger screen. Nintendo becoming more and more paternalistic is not my cup of tea, either.

I got an email notification yesterday hyping the joys of playing MM3D on the MMnew3ds. Of course they linked it to an image with 'not currently available' over it.

I don't think ninty's PR people even inhabit the real world anymore, but more a world of no-one-is-gonna-notice-the-stupid-we-do-because-Nintendo.

I am not interested in amiibos but wanted then to do well for ninty's sake. Not enough controller adapters. Not enough new 3ds units. Not bringing the regular new 3ds to the States. Somehow making their shortsightedness a virtue doesn't ring true. There is new double speak issued with each new disappointment.

I feel they have lost direction.

Nintendo is making me just not care anymore.

k8sMum commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:

Those of you who don't want/care about a handheld MM have a really simple non-task ahead: don't freaking buy it. See how simple that is?

Those of us who have longed for the experience on a handheld will buy it and play happily, if occassionally frustratingly, away. Everyone is happy. Nice when things work out that way.

@Artie 'I promote people to comment or reply to me, however on the point I have made, I cannot be budged.'

Lol.
You appear to be under the illusion that your opinion has some sort of value here. Pomposity is not a great way to make a point.

I still play for a bit almost everyday. You become invested in the town and inhabitants. I just park outside the local McD's for the n-zone connection. My grandson who is 3000 miles away and I visit each other's towns once a week. Of course, I give him 1 million bells each time, lol.

@ryanator008 I get the idea that when you complain you consider it complaining. When others complain you consider it whining. Look up what George Carlin said about stuff.

I said they would know the whys of it thru websites such as this airing people's dissatisfaction with there decision. Will customer dissatisfaction have any impact? I honestly don't know. You must have a crystal ball because you are certain of everything.

Hell is pretty crowded. Mine began March 16, 2001. Like you, there's no way back. Gaming helps, tho, doesn't it? Anticipation for consoles and games is something to look forward to, to let some light in. No, it's not life changing or anything, but it's fun which is sometimes hard to find.

@BLPs, @roy130390

Have either of you even bothered to read the comments here or is it more comfortable to just rely on stereotypes? I don't seen tantrums or true rants. I see people responding to a decision they are disappointed in.

Your descriptions sound more like The Guardian btl comments. Contrary to the image in your minds, we are no more all alike than brits or Mexicans. How do you know what 'most' Americans do? Do you know most Americans? Didn't think so.

I'm an atheist, so there goes your assumptions right off the bat.

@ryanator008 ok, so we can't whine, we don't have any impact financially...(please don't assume I think ninty is gonna worry about my not buying from them.)

Unless the are completely oblivious (and they may well be), they will know the whys of it. Do I think it will change anything? I doubt it. I think they would rather shoot themselves in the foot rather then admit they screwed up big this time.

This doesn't ruin my life. It's a gaming system. But I can and will express my feelings of disappointment.
