At the Nintendo World Store in NYC, they had Zelda, a few Lil Macs, and Diddy Kong. Picked up a Lil Mac, couldn't believe they were out of Luigi already. They were also out of Captain Falcon and Pit, as well as villager, wii fit trainer and marth, as you would expect.

They did have a fresh stock of the Gamecube controller adapters though, which was comforting.

I'm confused, there is an earlier article on NL stating that four 3DS games (smash, yokai, pokemon, monster) have sold over 2 million copies each in Japan, but on this list two of them are still below 2 million in lifetime sales.

Do these numbers not include digital download?



Oaf7724 commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

I really don't think it would be a good idea.

It would take too much attention away from their home console / portable console business and frankly they need all the attention they can get currently.

Also look at Amazon's Fire phone. That came out with a lot of hooplah and a strong price tag not too long ago. Now it's on the verge of extinction and the price has been reduced drastically.



Oaf7724 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Sells Nearly 500,0...:

I too expected a bit more then that, but it's still a great number. Plus I know a lot of my friends have yet to get it, plus all the holiday shopping, it's going to do very well.

I'm curious about Pokemon's ORAS numbers. When I was in line for Smash early release, the line seemed to be filled with more people for Pokemon.

I think the amiibos, as figurines, are well-crafted and pretty cool for collectors.
However their functionality, imho, seems very weak and tacked on to me. It will be interesting to see if they can maintain a popularity.



Oaf7724 commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

I don't really have a problem with this. These execs are just doing their job, you need to believe that your system is the best, and to try and sell it as the best. The sales numbers will speak the truth. I really wish we could get NA/UK NPD figures weekly like we do from JPN....and not have them hidden from the public.



Oaf7724 commented on Review: Fantasy Life (3DS):

Chomping at the bit for this game. Very jealous of UK who've been playing it for a while already, and JPN who's forgotten about it already!



Oaf7724 commented on Weirdness: Monster Hunter Series Producer Deni...:

You know, I don't want to buy into this, but now that I think about it, when me and my friends play and one of us is searching for a particular item, often is the case where he does not get it and some of us who are not looking for it do get it.

And you can't give the item to your friend. I know the percentages for some items to drop are very low but still I seem to get a lot of very rare items when I am not even looking for them.



Oaf7724 commented on Armillo:

Got it the other night, it's on sale in NA til the 6th I believe, only $5! Love it so far. Was looking forward to getting it for a while, and when I saw the price drop it was just perfect.



Oaf7724 commented on Nintendo 64x64: Buck Bumble:

@Link506 it's just ratings from two different Nintendo 64 magazines.

I thought this game was pretty underrated! And say what you want about the theme, but I still remember it vividly 15 years later. My friends and I joke about it all the time.



Oaf7724 commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

This is a lose-lose for Ubisoft. Why would I buy a game from this publisher when they purposely held the finished product away from us for 2 months while all of the other consoles were able to play? Because of this, I won't buy, and if there are others that see this the same way, the game won't sell.



Oaf7724 commented on Somebody At Ubisoft Really Doesn't Like Mario ...:

Honestly, as great as the idea of DLC for Mario Kart 8 is, I can't help but think that Nintendo is dropping the ball a little.

3 month's after the game's release, and in the middle of a summer dry spell, this would have been the absolute perfect time to update the roster and add more characters. Throwing in Diddy Kong, Dry Bones, Birdo, Petey Pirahna, etc. would give sales a nice little boost until Hyrule Warriors drops at the end of September and we roll into the busy fall/winter season.
