@Peach64 Seems a really stupid way to get games.. The original games on disk would cost a lot less and dont involve all the inconvenience. I mean say you want 3 games. At most you would be paying out £70 for all the originals. The loss you would make on 3 copies of Mk would be around £30, but here's the kicker you would have nothing physical to show for that money. What's more Nintendo got all your money and just gave you a piece of paper with a download code that has no future value. Only really economic morons would do what you are suggesting.

@aaronsullivan That's right. The kids get their New Year money and go nuts.

It is hell in Japan in the first week of January.

I see the WiiU is going to go big this winter in Japan. A big problem here was that a lot of the families could still buy wii games. They just weren't ready for a new console. Now the software is dying on the older systems and they want a new system. The Wiiu also undersold it's family friendly nature. Kid can play in the same room while you watch the news, dad can jump in on a game when the news has finished.

@shigulicious The PS4 is already a failure in Japan. Can you even imagine how the Japanese took the news that they would not get the system until February? February in Japan is a nothing month. No bonus, no national holidays, no kids with money, people worried about next years transfers/ work.. You have no idea about how Japan works. I've lived here for years. The PS4 is for otaku and foreigners. What's more most Otaku have bought a gaming PC.

Sony see Japan as a lost cause.
