kobashi100 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Modest Sales Targets...:

I actually think Nintendo shouldn't spends lots of money on marketing the Wii U. The console is toxic and there is no point throwing money in marketing a console that nobody wants.

Just look at RIM with blackberry. Spent loads on marketing and achieved nothing. Same with Microsoft and the windows RT tablet.

If nobody wants your product it doesn't matter how much you market it. Nobody will buy it.

Also the first Wii U ads that Nintendo were a joke. Some of the worst console ads going.

Also what is all these various issues that Iwata feels stops current consoles becoming region free.

Nintendo only have to inform publishers of a new policy change. Ask if they have old titles that shouldn't be region free and then release a patch.

This is not difficult.

If they have license deals that are based on non region free gaming which in turn will cause headache to renegotiate then that shows that region lock was an idiotic idea in the first place.

No the reason DS has pirate copies everywhere is because Nintendo had a very poor anti piracy system in place.

This idea that region free gaming creates piracy is pure BS. Please explain why the Vita doesn't have rampant piracy even though it's region free.

Nintendo could release a patch that enables the Wii U and 3DS to be region free tomorrow but they won't. It's ridiculous that in 2015 we have region locked consoles. Iwata acts like region free is some major headache which takes a huge effort to create. It's simple and Sony and MS have shown this can be done.

How can this article miss out on the greatest wrestling games on N64.

Not being funny but virtual pro wrestling and virtual pro wrestling II are the greatest wrestling games on N64.

Wish people would realise that pro-wrestling is not just WWE CRAP

@outburst but parents won't by Nintendo hardware just because Nintendo games are on mobile. Parents will me more inclined not to buy Nintendo hardware.

I have already had a friend at work tell me she won't have to buy another Nintendo device ever again for her son as she has read Nintendo games would be on phones and tablets.



kobashi100 commented on New Exploit Makes The 3DS Region Free Without ...:

@BLPs Nintendo releasing the new kirby game in June for EU is nothing to do with PEGI. Nintendo Europe just doing what Nintendo has Always done and that's delaying releases way behind Japan and America.

Also why is it that xbox and Sony platforms don't tend to have huge delays between US and EU release dates.

Nintendo platforms have the worst delays. You can't tell me this is all down to PEGI.

Also stop with the OTT reaction of people importing games. The amount of people who import games is a small %. It will hardly effect Nintendo's bottom line.

Sony and MS don't have this huge amount of people importing games.



kobashi100 commented on 3DS Homebrew Exploit Set to be Launched on 22n...:


Do you honestly believe that the amount of people who would import games would really make a dent. In Nintendo's bottom line.

Sorry but your gonna have to come up with some true numbers showing this is the case. Like I said before, import gamers are a very small %. Even during the DS, dreamcast, GC days where region free gaming was easy there wasn't this huge amount of gamers importing. Same with PS3!

Also it's irrelevant that MS region lock windows OS. Gaming division is separate from windows division.

Sony still region lock blu rays but again it is irrelevant. Nintendo are behind the times and you are simply defending them at all costs.

As for virtual console. Sorry but if Nintendo actually did something with this service instead of this pathetic drip drip service we get at the moment then maybe people would not care about emulators.

Nintendo's use of virtual console is a joke.



kobashi100 commented on 3DS Homebrew Exploit Set to be Launched on 22n...:


Yes retailers may sell import copies. This has been happening for decades so it's nothing new. Again though, the numbers are small so this idea that publishers will be massively hit is not true at all.

Why does the competition have no problem with region free gaming. I don't see a any publisher saying that Sony and MS are wrong to allow that.

Name me one publisher who complained about the DS being region free.



kobashi100 commented on 3DS Homebrew Exploit Set to be Launched on 22n...:


Your comment about region locking is laughable. How many people do you think would import the Japanese copy if available? Japanese RPG with no English text would not be popular.

The percent of people that import gamesin general is very small. It would hardly touch Nintendo's bottom line.

Oh and what about the games that never leave Japan. Shouldn't we all have the opportunity to play these games.

I had to import a Japanese 3DS, this shouldn't be the only option if you want to play Japanese games.

Can't believe someone is actually defending Nintendo on region lock gaming.

There is always one though!!



kobashi100 commented on Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty Wii U Delay Seems to b...:

the 8GB model is a complete waste of time and offers no value.

The premium model is a joke with the 32GB on offer. no reason for nintendo to offer such low memory.

Sony launch price of PS4 shows that nintendo could and should have offered more memory.



kobashi100 commented on Wii U Minecraft Looking Doubtful As Dev Says T...:


Vgchartz is not credible so argument is over.

You do know that Vgchartz never disclose the sources where they get their numbers from. They are full of BS.

Nobody in the industry gives them any credibility.

But hey if it Makes you happy that they have Wii U selling better then xbox one then carry on using there bogus numbers.



kobashi100 commented on Wii U Minecraft Looking Doubtful As Dev Says T...:

3DS version simply not possible due to hardware restrictions.

Nintendo should pay development costs for Wii U, that's the only way it happening.

And please can we stop with the Wii U is selling better then the xbox one myth. Unless you can back that statement up with a credible source then stay silent.

Yes Vgchartz does not count. They are nowhere near credible.

NPD numbers constantly have xbox one ahead of Wii U month on month.

UK numbers the same.
