This is why Nintendo does transfer mechanisms instead of one account to play all games regardless of hardware. Digital stuff like this is always opened to abuse. Google, Apple and the rest also just live with the abuse. I remember downloading World of Goo (though the Wiiware version is the best...) on an Android tablet that didn't belong to me using my account used with my cellphone.. simply a free copy for my parents in law. When you want to throw out money like that, you don't tie software to hardware.

@Resh LOL, true. Some of them also seem particularly obsessive, posting like 20 or 30 comments in the thread :)
Personally, I don't see the big deal here. So Nintendo is going to miss out on a small scale...... 2D platformer !. What a bummer... Wii U really needs these games badly, especially lame clones of Rambi LOL.

looks like good times a' coming... won't be able to resist the Affordable Space Adventures, Swords and Soldiers II and probably the others as well :) Love my Wii U. If only I had more time to play all these games.



dumedum commented on Review: KAMI (3DS eShop):

I actually played this on mobile like a year ago. It's an okay game, nice puzzles I guess. I wouldn't say it's gorgeous though, not at all.

Question to those who played the 3DS version: In the console version (Wii) there is a mini game that if you put those red/blue 3d glasses you see in 3D. Is there something similar in the 3DS version? They could have just used the built in 3D (which they don't I guess) but I wonder what they did. Bit trip runner lookalike is also there, right? I don't think I want to double dip but curious about this.

I agree that it shouldn't be hard like it seems, but really, there is no other option. This uses a micro SD card which makes sense technologically, so you have to transfer the data anyway via PC to make it easy, and that's really the only cumbersome part. Then having to download MH4 into the system you just bought with preinstalled MH4 is annoying but I don't see a way around it probably. So I don't blame Nintendo for this. There is nothing you can do to make it easier. Stuff based on SD cards is just that - it's like replacing harddrives. What can you do.

@Quorthon wow, your post is so full of complete ignorance I don't know where to begin.

First, let's check the link, because that's where your lies began.

GBC, is a handheld game console manufactured by Nintendo. It was released on October 21, 1998 in Japan and was released in November of the same year in international markets. It is the successor of the Game Boy.

Read: Successor.
Read again.

Continue reading. As part of the fifth generation of gaming (from 1997), the Game Boy Color's primary competitors were the SNK's Neo Geo Pocket and the Bandai's WonderSwan (JDM only)

Fifth generation. Got it? Read again.

Now let's check the definition of fifth generation.

For handhelds, this era was characterized by significant fragmentation, because the first handheld of the generation, the Sega Nomad, had a lifespan of just two years, and the Virtual Boy for less than one year only, with both of them being discontinued before the other handhelds made their debut. Nintendo's Game Boy Color was the winner in handhelds by a large margin. There were also two updated versions of the original Game Boy: Game Boy Light (Japan only) and Game Boy Pocket.

So again, I'll explain it slowly. It says Game Boy Light and Game Boy Pocket were updated versions, like your stupid irrelevant example of DSi, but GBC was a new generation, like the 3DS to the DS. Exact same analogy. It's also not just the color, the shape etc. just to educate you. For example, GBC had 32 kB RAM and 16 kB VRAM, GB had 8 kB S-RAM and 8 kB VRAM.

Okay, moving on.

Again, with your personal ridicilous claims. Just because the other consoles had more dudebro shooters sold, has nothing to do with market leaders. This has to do with market leaders:

Wii Sports 82.54 million
Mario Kart Wii 35.53 million
Wii Sports Resort 32.58 million
New Super Mario Bros. Wii 28.65 million
Wii Play 28.02 million
Wii Fit 22.67 million
Wii Fit Plus 21.03 million

No Sony/Microsoft game even comes close.

For comparison, there are the best selling PS3 games:

Gran Turismo 5 10.66 million
The Last of Us 6 million
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots 6 million
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue 5.35 million

LOL. Only one game surpassed 10 million, barely, a third party port. Compared to seven 20 million+ sellers on the Wii plus two more that sold 12 million plus (Galaxy, Brawl). No competition really. The number 16th on Wii list sold like number 5 on the PS3 just to give you a proportion.

This combined with the 100 million unprecedented sales (PS2 was just sold as a DVD player, but nothing surpassed the Wii or the DS of course which you completely ignored.. DS even surpasses PS2) is the total industry takeover that Nintendo had. It with the blue ocean strategy was the first to reach the casual market, not only with titles like Nintendogs and Brain Age on the Nintendo DS, but with complete Domination in the Wii. No accessory ever sold better than the Wii Fit Balance Board, no games sold better than Mario Kart or NSMB, Nintendo had total domination and paved the way for casual players to even be interested in videogaming.

Wii became a household name, and anyone knew how to operate a wii remote, which nintendo sold a ridiculous amount of . So it has nothing to do with any dudebro shooters. Obviously Wii died out in 2011 and since then more of the games came out to the other consoles , but that's totally irrelevant too.

@Quorthon no, it's another generation period. Color was huge back in the day. There's nothing to argue about. It's called the fifth generation of consoles and the game boy is called fourth generation. It's just the facts. No point in arguing your faulty presumptions. Your interpretation of success is also completely off base and personal. The success is that the share price quadrupled at the time, and hundreds of millions of profits. That's how you measure success. Not if it affected the company 10 years later, but the fact it leapfrogged Nintendo from a bad Gamecube time into the world's leader in videogames and made Wii a household name all over the world, a phenomenal unprecedented success in videogaming.

@Quorthon (1) GBC was a different generation... yeah, color, and less bricky, like 3D instead of 2D etc. (2) He also presided over the Wii and DS, greatest successes ever of humanity pretty much. He should be relaxed forever after such success. Wii U is problematic sure but the 3DS is a huge success - selling 50 million units in the age of smartphones that didn't exist back in the GB days is amazing achievement, and any console (portable or not, you lump them together) selling 50 million units and still going is a good achievement for Nintendo and any console maker.

Fire emblem is the only one that makes sense. That game was completely sold out everywhere and I couldn't buy it for normal process. The rest I have give or take a few bad choices that don't belong in the list (excitebots, strikers, rhythm heaven, spm).

The regular smaller size is much superior and would have liked that. Still I want a new 3ds regardless so alas I am buying the new xl. Disappointed but NOA got me. I will buy the xl and still be happy and I advise others disappointed to do the same and bite the bullet. Its still worth it new 3ds whatever size so go ahead and buy the xl. NOA not bringing the regular.

@electrolite77 one platform providers carefully selected angle aka truth in this case. Anyway, looking at this silly discussion.. Nintendo has no reason to ever go third party. Sega's market cap as a third party is 3.32B. Nintendo at its worst arguably is now 14.42B. Going third party would be suicide.
