I only had 5 games on the 32X, I remember being gutted when you couldn't get rid of the border on Doom. By the time VF was available, I'd already upgraded to a Saturn

Maybe Ninty EU and NA should align themselves to avoid upsetting the fan base. Perhaps they should have also delayed the normal size in EU also (I'm sure it will be available in NA eventually)
I don't think Ninty would have not sold the normal N3DS based on sales of the original, as there are lot of design changes that make it a far better product.
Selling Online only would have been a good option, as people have already mentioned.

It's the same issue on the VC. If we had alignment between EU and NA, these issues can be avoided (IMO)

I know that Japan don't do Xbox, and that 191 sales is nothing new, I wonder how many of the 191 people asked for a Sony or Nintendo carrier bag to avoid getting ridiculed? It must be like ordering gravy in a Pie & Mash shop

I didn't get round to playing these games on the Wii, so I am interested. I assume S&P2 plays like the N64, should work well with pointer controls.

Still hoping N64 will be on Wii VC soon, with Pilot Wings 64 as a launch title

For me, it's the Off TV play that sold the Wii U. The fact that I can play in any room in my house is fantastic, combined with a very good 1st Party software line up, makes the Wii U my favourite console.
Why Ninty don't use Off TV Play as a hook, I don't know. I think when the Wii U first released in the UK, they did advertise this, but they were forced to stop advertising this because, at the time, not every game had Off TV Play, I think someone (or some company) complained that it was false advertising.
EDIT: Could have also been due to some people not getting a strong enough signal in their home

I have an Ambassador New 3DS. The only thing that bothers me (but not a major issue) is I keep accidentally putting the Stylus into the Headphone Socket. Would have been better to keep the Stylus to the side as the XL.
I am very happy with the new model. The new Stable 3D is fantastic. I now play with 3D fully on, always used to be fully off
