mjharper commented on The Game Boy is 25 Years Old in North America:

I never got a Game Boy, but I remember always finding the display at Wal-mart or Toys R Us and playing Tetris until my parents told me it was time to go. I've owned at least three different versions of Tetris since then, but Game Boy Advance was my first (and only) portable.

mjharper commented on E3 2014: Launch Sales of Mario Kart 8 Outperfo...:

"...especially bearing in mind that the kart racer arrived in late 2011 on 3DS against the context of struggling sales for the portable; it did have Super Mario 3D Land for company, of course."

I might need further explanation on the point being made here: how are sales not struggling for Wii U at the time of MK8's release? And Wii U also has Super Mario 3D World for company, as well as other titles.

It sounds as though we're being told that the MK7 attach rate is lower than that of MK8 because of these factors, but they don't seem to differentiate the situations in my mind. Help?
