Unca_Lz commented on Orders Open For Xbox One in China as Nintendo ...:

@Kodeen Well maybe that's WHY they're hesitant on this market. Nintendo has more knowledge of the market than Sony and Microsoft. They also probably know that they need to make a console that is so cheap that pirating it would be pointless. Throwing the Wii U as it is to the market will most likely not work.

Also, Microsoft failed miserably in Japan, so I have no faith in their strategy in China.

@ikki5 @Hernandez Obviously we need some quotes to make a point: "Nintendo has successfully utilised the latter with its iQue range." and "Nintendo has opted for a different strategy, announcing in May that it'll produce new hardware for emerging markets, including China."

The decisions are made. Something is going to happen. Nintendo already has a market in China.

If you look at the data of China, most of the country can't afford expensive consoles. Microsoft's strategy will most likely not even work because of the abundance of knock offs that are cheaper. Nintendo actually has the advantage since their products are already in the country.

Except China as a market is not the same as elsewhere. The middle class has far less money and can't really afford a PS4 or Xbox One. Nintendo is probably opting for a cheap and effective console instead. Heck, the Wii would sell like hot cakes rather than the Wii U

@ikki5: I don't think you understand China as a market more than executives who have done their research. Throwing an expensive product at a new market does NOT guarantee sales at all. Also, doing "nothing"? Did you even bother reading the entire article?

@2Sang While you don't speak for everyone, I am more irritated at the "fans" who keep saying that they "deserve" better rewards. They spent $500+ on products that they conveniently ignore because they DESERVE free stuff on top of said products. They also claim that Nintendo needs to apologize for these complimentary rewards.

I am irritated because I am a Nintendo fan who also spent thousands of dollars on Nintendo products and enjoy what I paid for. I consider this service a bonus, not a necessity. I do not care if the rewards are good or not because they are a bonus regardless of how you justify otherwise. Nintendo also doesn't have to do this for me, because I only spent my money on their games and they made those games for me. They've done enough for me.

It only takes me 2 minutes to fill out a survey. I seriously doubt minimum wage could pay for a prize here, and I actually fail to see why you use money in this kind of argument anyway. Your time is not worth any money to begin with

@2Sang: Your points would make sense if this weren't a complimentary service that requires no extra pay. You spent your money on the games themselves, not the coins. For the most part, you already got your money's worth from the games, and these prizes are just bonuses. Nintendo in no shape or form is obligated to "apologize" for these rewards because we did not pay for them.

@Garuu-Popka ...for 650 coins?

@Yorumi: Actually it is entitlement. Promise or not, this is not a service you are paying for. This is a service that Nintendo is providing solely for the purpose of giving extras to its fans. Again, no extra payment is being made (normally). Will you stop buying Nintendo products because the extras that have nothing to do with them are bad?

@Yorumi Again, they spent their money on products that they received. They did not spend money on coins for Club Nintendo. Nintendo should NOT feel obligated to give them more complimentary things. This whole entitlement BS is getting rather irritating

It's just controversy because LPers have developed a sense of entitlement for the revenue, and Nintendo is flexing its legal power to take a cut. I understand that some do this for a living, but they were never guaranteed this income fully.
