Wii version doesn't make sense now.
3DS version never made sense in the first place.

Wii U makes the most sense for FIFA, though. Imagine being able to draw up plays on the fly if you're a manager. Imagine being able to target which place the goalkeeper is going to guard by tapping the screen. Imagine being able to score goals by outwitting said goalkeeper by tapping another area of the screen. >Hnnnngh

@Artwark Well, I don't care, too! I'm fine if the Wii U ends up like another Dreamcast or N64: Fantastic first-party support and poor third-party support leading to a console not seen as a success, but is well-loved by everyone who owned it.
The problem is that the Vita is starting to entice me...

Why is he saying this? I'm betting it's an ulterior motive.
Now, Nintendo games typically hold their price well over time (and normally lack DLC), which makes them perfect for the reselling business Gamestop has. With more demand for Nintendo games, and the fact that a lot of people prefer physical to digital thanks to the purchase being tied to a single Wii U, you get more potential for the resale business.

The DS sold because of piracy (I know this from experience.)
The Wii initially sold because of the motion controls, but benefited greatly from piracy later on (Again, I know this from experience.)

Whether Nintendo will want to benefit from this is another thing entirely.
150 million buying an average of just over six games...
or 50 million buying an average of 20?

Skeptical, and it does have a bit of that Earthbound feel, even if it feels like a flash game more.

To be honest, I hate those text bubbles crowding out the middle of the screen. And it seems like the took out the rolling HP bars that made the Mother series so gripping to me.

Picking this up for 3DS because Atlus.
