Similar to someone whose download corrupted and they can't access the eShop. With that said, I can't imagine the first few chapters taking that long to complete.

On that note, if we're talking improbable extremes, what if someone loses or breaks their physical copy? They would have to pay for a replacement, whereas download files can be replaced more easily and usually at no extra cost.

@PlywoodStick: According to the interview, the game is downloaded in parts. You get Chapters 1-6 first and then the rest of the game downloads for the path you choose. You don't get the other path unless you download it via DLC later.

@Yorumi Have you realized that we still don't know western plans or do I need to point it out again?

"Beyond that I also pointed to other tactical games that have about 5 times or more the missions of FE:IF combined and yet were sold as one game."

Can you tell me how many chapters there are in each version? Or is this more conjecture?

Most of the argument is pure conjecture. They could actually be two different games...

@Yorumi: And you think it's ok to spout out conjecture as fact. Until you play the game or Japan posts videos showing the game, your argument barely holds water.

I want to point out one premature conclusion: the west will get two versions as well. Nintendo never announced that.

Japan is getting two versions because FE fans there will buy both. Nintendo's strategy is brilliant for the Japanese market. The west is not as big on FE, so it may only get one version with both paths with the third possibly being DLC. Don't believe me? Look at Puzzles and Dragons Z/Mario and note how it's $30 and includes both games.

TingLz commented on Review: Pokémon Rumble World (3DS eShop):

@TeeJay I don't understand the principle of opposing free-to-play. Explain how trying a game for free is essentially worse than playing a short demo for a $40-$60 game you have to pay upfront instead of small chunks.

I want to make something perfectly clear to everyone here. There is a difference between a constructive debate (about Nintendo, etc.), and an argument about how other users post. It is perfectly fine to disagree with one another, but not if it involves attacks to other users. If you don't like how someone posts, just ignore him/her and move on.

@EngieBengie Let me ask you something. Why does a fan project garner so many views...whereas let's plays and ads for actual Mario games get nothing? How is a fan project "free advertising"? Who is watching these fan projects? Why are they watching them? Is this really so straightforward?

@mjc0961 Fist off, look up copyright infringement. You misused the term completely. Second, how is this "fair use"? The authors of this software pulled assets directly from copyrighted games without any sort of change for the purpose of distribution to others. This is actually not fair use at all. Granted fair use is actually determined by judges as it differs from case to case, which does apply to your point about not being able to afford these cases. However, on that note, there is no guarantee of victory even if they do go to court.

Again, where is the free advertisement? Mario is a well known character already, so why does some fan project get so much attention when it's unofficial and has little to do with the series? On that note, how will this lead to sales...for a product that doesn't exist?

TingLz commented on Nintendo Highlights Increased US Hardware Sale...:

I'm not even sure why we're discussing the Dreamcast. It and the Wii U are not in the same position. The Dreamcast was doomed to fail because of Sega themselves, whereas the Wii U is not in that predicament.

You can keep throwing out the "it sold less than the Dreamcast" argument, but it means nothing. Nintendo is still doing well and profiting. Lastly, as faint pointed out, the Dreamcast only sold 10+ million because of its final run. Matter of fact, Sega was the failure, not the Dreamcast.

@ikki5 Funny you should mention the Dreamcast. It sold 10.6 million worldwide and the Wii U was at 9.2 million as of last December.

This year the Wii U may outsell the Dreamcast.

I should also point out that the "outsold" argument is a bit premature considering we don't have sales data for the Wii U during the same span as the Dreamcast. It could be a difference of less than 1 million, much smaller than everyone is assuming.

@PvtOttobot (and everyone else) With all due respect, we ask that you not argue about religion here. This is not against your faith, but religious discussions here never end well.

I am fully aware of the content that BoI has, but this is still not the place for such discussions.

@Geonjaha Well I guess it's a good thing they're not charging full price for both. You can download the other campaign for less than half the price.

Also, again folks, this is for Japan. They have said nothing about what they'll do in the western release.
