It's not entirely Nintendos fault. They would have have crunched the Numbers on how many to make based on the sales of the Wii U & 3DS hardware + The number of games that would use them and how well they would. For example would their be a point in making 1 amiibo per copy of the game they print. The issue is Nintendo didn't anticipate that people who don't own Wii U or 3DS consoles are buying these figures as well. I think Nintendo should be forgiven for assuming that people with Wii U/3DS consoles would be their consumer base, these are Wii U/3DS accessories after all.

Physical is always cheaper here in AUS. An example Puzzle & Dragons Z on the EShop was 49.95 and I paid $33 for the physical. Same with Kirby and the rainbow paintbrush it is 59.95 on the Eshop and I paid $48 for the physical copy. The difference on those 2 games alone is almost half the cost of another game.

It's all well and good to get the console earlier than US/EU, but it's not that big of a deal being that Aussies are going to have to wait for the US/EU to get the console before we see any of the exclusive content like Xenoblade released anyway. Although it is nice to have the CPP built in and faster downloads.

If you think the the EU club Nintendo shop is bad you should see the AU Version. It has 14 items which are the 2 game and watch volumes, 2 pouches, shoe laces, cleaning cloths, pencil case, 2 sets of bookmarks, playing cards, a couple of DS game storage cases and a Wii remote stand.



mantez commented on Review: Ben 10: Omniverse (Wii U):

I played the PS3 version with my sons and I thought it wasn't bad and we enjoyed it. If it's the same game which I am assuming it is. I would give it at least a 5. Basically if you like the show, there is a good chance you will find the game to be alright.

There seems to be a lot of hurt from the Nintendo fan boys (or girls). These fan boys need to get some of their facts straight as well. At the end of the day, every system has it pros and cons and every system has a range of great games and a range of trashy games.
