Nintendo doesn't want a warehouse full of amiibos so they are starting slow to make sure they sell what they produce. I'm sure the store exclusives and Wii Fit Trainer will have lesser numbers though simply because of demand and the type of promotion

There are no huge numbers this week which leads me to believe that "Holiday Sales" aren't in full swing in Japan yet. Year over year the numbers this week for Wii U are way down from last holiday 48k to 24k but that could all change next week? I guess we wait and see

Next 3 weeks will be interesting from a sales perspective

Still not bad. Smash has to be well over a million already and with 3 to 4 weeks left of holiday sales, the user base should see significant jump in Japan and world wide

Thanks for the how to on new user saving. Still annoying that it doesn't have a few save spots. I can see different users being very useful in a few years though. Right now the boys are 5 and 3 so it isn't an issue......but in a few years the different users and parental controls will come in handy

Good interview. This is a fun game that I bought off the eShop as a last hurrah for my DDP points.....one final $5 credit.

2 things I wish they would patch in. I wish it had 2 or 3 saves so multiple people could play it without playing someone else's game (maybe I'm missing something but I can't figure out how to have a brand new game for my son while I play my version) and i wish the 1st person point of view on the mine levels was available for all of the levels when you aren't using off TV play.

Remember Atari and E.T........Nintendo is trying to avoid that. They didn't know how well either would do so they manufactured a small amount to test. Now we will begin phase 2 of manufacturing.....they already had too much warehouse supply with Wii U after launch so it seems they are trying to avoid that again and be more conservative

Wii U might not match the strength of it's closest competitors but it still has the ability to push out some amazing game visuals. Can't wait to see what's next. 2015 seems like a wallet killing year and 2016 still has some promise. After all, Retro has to be working on something.

@burninmylight - free shipping on anything over $35 so if you buy a $50 eShop card next time there is a sale they deliver it to your door a few days later without having to step inside the store. Last year when they ran the 20% off promotion and this year for Black Friday I ordered a couple off my phone to stock up.

Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Download: 4th December (North America):

My first thought was, "why isn't NES Remix listed for Wii U. It comes out tomorrow." Then I felt really dumb

@ThomasBW84 - me getting Nintendo news RIGHT NOW, is more important then your safety. Next time I expect you to work through the danger and if the fire is too hot carry your desk outside!

I think it would be difficult to work on the same game over and over again. I think if i was developer I'd want to work on new projects all the time. The only thing that may make me revisit a franchise was if I still had part of the story to tell.

Hopefully he has a pet project in mind that he would like to work on and Nintendo gives him the freedom to do so.

Gerbwmu commented on Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire and New 3...:

Can Nintendo make it to 9 million Wii U's by the end of December? Will they make it to 10 million? Seems like a long shot to get to 10 million but with the right December numbers it could happen.

Hoping a December direct will come around in a few weeks to talk about 2015 in all it's glory. I need to start saving money!

Gerbwmu commented on Parent Trap: Amiibo Packs a Hidden Family Payload:

I'd like to see an Amiibo game that had different areas modeled after Nintendo universes where you can use your Amiibo as the main controllable character. So i can use Link and all his normal weapons in a Mario 3D world, or Samus in a Zelda type world, or Mario in a Pushmo world type thing. Not really locking content behind an Amiibo but allowing you to use what ever characters you have to experience a weird version of a specific Nintendo Universe. Shooting Goombas with Samus arm canon in FP Prime point of view would be an interesting change on the SMB formula.
