If it were removed, it'd be very disappointing. Obviously the ESRB rating system is flawed because of the people that work there. I bet people who rate games also rate movies. They are straight forward with what they want changed or removed, but they aren't straight forward with why.

Shirma_Akayaku commented on Modder Shows How to Play the 3DS With a GameCu...:

I heard that the Nintendo Network User Agreement changed to prohibit the use of Gamecube controllers or other mods on the 3DS. Although this mod is cool, it is in a sense, pointless.

First off, it's a handheld that you can take with you everywhere. You're not gonna be playing a 3DS on the bus using a Gamecube controller. That's just impractical. Second, the Wii U version will include Gamecube controller support. We can wait for it to come out in November. Lastly, I don't see many people buying this since it won't last that long once the Wii U version comes out.

All in all, it's a good idea, but it just has flaws that would be a detriment to the overall product's lifespan.

I said this before, but I'll quote it:

What's weird is that I actually prefer the rubber pad off than on. It makes the Circle Pad feel like there's more wiggle room. The rubber part made it slightly bigger in diameter, so it doesn't make much off a difference for me. So yeah, my rubber part broke off before I got the Smash Demo.

Shirma_Akayaku commented on Mario Kart 8's Hackers Open Up Over Their Plan...:

@WaLzgi There could be a connection between piracy and rising sales. I think it can happen, but barely. It's such a small sales push for video games that it doesn't really help a big name company such as Nintendo, but it might help indie developers by spreading the word about their game. Piracy tends to work well for music and I'm not sure why it works so favorably for it instead of video games.

By the way, I'm not good at making these kind of comments, but I hope I typed it out in a manner that's understandable.

@Geonjaha I think piracy does play a role in a products sale. What @unrandomsam said does have meaning. On the Wii, the games that sold the most were usually the ones that were pirated the most. Part of why that happens is because modders / hackers tend to buy the game after they pirate it because they wan't to get deep into the disk's content rather than a tampered version from online. Plus, they'd want to make a backup incase they lose the disk.

Surprisingly, pirates are usually the ones who end up spending the most.
Here's some videos on piracy, but not directly on video games.

One major deciding factor is the price. If it's too expensive, and you barely get to use it, that's money possibly wasted. If you spend a decent amount, and you don't get to use it much, that's money possibly wasted.

It also depends on the type of Amiibo you get. If you get Mario, chances are that you'll get to use him a lot since he's in a lot of games. Get the Wii Fit Trainer, and the only place you might use it is in Smash Bros and Wii Fit, which is pretty shallow.
