@BensonUii

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.

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.

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!!

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.

@CaptainToad

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.

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.

@Hy8ogen you really have no understanding about the gaming industry.

Just think about this for a minute. If mario kart 8 cannot sell enough Wii U consles in Q1, how the hell do you yhink Q2, Q3, Q4 will be better.

look at the software being released. Q2 has nothing so there is no doubt at all the the hardware sales will be down. How are they going to increase when there is no new games to buy?

please explain that one?

Q3 and Q4 has releases but none with the power of mario kart. Just exactly how do you expect them to shift hardware units. Again if you do, please explain how?

Fantastic sales for Mario kart 8 but it's existing customers.

The game has not sold the Wii U to new customers. We are definitely looking at 10 -12m Wii U sales in its lifetime. Anyone who thinks it will get anywhere near the gamecube even at 20m is living in a dream world.

3DS is also sinking like a Stone. Nintendo definitely need to look at releasing a new handheld in 2015.

Nice boost for Wii U although I expected more. The major problem is that with no steady release of games the console cannot build up any momentum.

These droughts are a joke. The reality is that the Wii U will reach gamecube levels of success and that's about it.

@Zobocop This!!

Lots of them Wii owners moved away from consoles and moved onto tablets and smartphones.

They won't be coming back either
either.

I personally had Wii and 360, got Wii U day one but also got a PS4. Wii U is current gen for me and I wanted a next gen machine.
