@zez: it's closer than VG/KT/MM are to NL, yes, but it's not an exact mirror duplicate. I'm still kinda iffy on it myself, but i'm sure I'll get used to it in time. Either way, i'd appreciate it if you didn't attempt to belittle his opinion with the 'well you're just a Nintendo fanboy, no wonder you don't think it's a 10/10 design' excuse, please and thank you.

By not ready I thought they meant that ISPs are too locked down and moat people only have the basic Internet plans which are too slow for downloading mass amounts of data. Also on the phone side you aren't even allowed to download big files over 3G because of the time it takes. Unless your running fios or tootle Tiber your sol.

there are multiple reasons behind it, and of course access to internet (whether via wi-fi or 3G plan) is going to be an obstacle too, but yeah — IMO the average person is not yet ready to take that step into a fully download-only gaming culture. we walk into a game store/poke around Amazon and eBay and expect to see physical copies of games available for play on our brand new consoles, not to be told that most of the playable games (for now) are only available for download over the internet. we're slowly making the transition (tech-savvy and gamers perhaps quicker than most?), but we're not fully there just yet.

@Tendoboy: You're missing my point due to your natural inclination to run threads down tangents. The Go flopping spectacularly was a prime example of the fact that John Q. Public is not ready to rely on a downloadable service for all of their gaming needs just yet. At the moment, the App Store is doing nothing but reinforce the idea that downloadable games are merely cheap diversions meant to be played while waiting in doctors' offices, airports, on the can, or in between solid, meaty retail releases gamers gladly throw their money at devs to get their grubby hands on. Retail sales have shrunk, yes, but the retail gaming store is not dead in the water just yet.

My original point was that the lack of playable retail games at retail for Vita (due to the lack of backwards-compatibility) stands a good chance of making initial Vita sales quite sluggish. At launch, people were able to walk into a store, see that the 3DS could play not only the handful of launch titles but allll those lovely available DS games as well — sure, the eShop wouldn't be around for a bit, but who cared? We'd be all right in the meantime until the 3DS titles we wanted started rolling in, right? As for the Vita, it'll have a few retail titles available and then the clerks'll have to talk pretty fast about social network connectivity and the SEN, at which point... y'know, your phone can download games too, and most downloadable games are like Angry Birds, just bite-sized little things, aren't they? And they're probably cheaper in the App Store anyway, so who cares? What do you need a Vita for just yet? that's the hurdle at the moment.

iOS devices and Android say hi.

the difference you've apparently missed (so what else is new) is that people have those devices as phones first, gaming devices second. you need a phone. you don't need a Vita.

@zez, whoever's arguing atm: yes, the redesigns do generally remove backwards compatibility, but whether people bought it for the existing library of DS games or not, the 3DS is backwards compatible (at this time) and they were able to tout that ability at launch — hey, if you don't have a DS yet, just grab yourself a 3DS and you can pick up all these amazing games, and if you do already have a DS, you're in luck! just trade in your old system and keep your games, you can totes still play 'em! y'know, that kind of thing. probably made upselling that much easier in stores; i know i heard the guys in gamestop talking about it to people whenever i went in for other stuff pre-3DS-launch.

The Vita won't be able to say that, so (at first) it's gonna have the same problem the Go had — most of its available games will be download-only, and the average person isn't quite ready to go full-on download-only just yet. Yes, eventually it will have its system-sellers, but for now, without sellers being able to say that it's fully compatible with these shelves worth of UMD games over here — and of course the handful released at launch that maybe people want and maybe they don't — i can't see initial sales being anything but sluggish in terms of John Q. Averageguy.

@Bass_X0: idk, i'm not sure if that's a blank that really needs to be filled in — maybe one case going back to that era, a la Mia's first case in T&T, but the rest i think i'd like to see happening in Apollo's present. His bracelet was a fun thing to mess with, Trucy was a trip and a half, and to be honest they've got enough to do with regards to explaining those gray Psyche-Locks and that demon-hand-thing... we already know what Phoenix was doing during his downtime anyway, pretty much. i'd like to see them tell us outright what happened to Edgey (but leave Oldbag and Butz out of it ffs, they had more than enough air-time in AAI D: D: D: )

I"d say 5+... a kindergartener would probably have quite a bit of fun with it depending on how well they read, and even then it might help them to get into reading more, you never know. the catching stuff and fishing and digging and decorating your town wouldn't really require all that much reading except to learn how it's done, and that's quite a big part of the game right there. You don't have to play the game 'right' or 'correctly' in order to enjoy what you're doing, especially in such an open-ended game like Animal Crossing.

Younger than 5 would probably need some parental guidance, but they'd still have fun too. and depending on the child, chances are they'd want to do it themselves anyway :3

i'd probably start exploring every day. doing different things. it's not like i'd run out of money, because the next time i woke up it'd be like i'd never spent it in the first place. it's not like i'd ever gain weight, so i'd probably start trying lots of new, expensive restaurants in town, lol. in fact, i don't really care if the Vita never hits or another 3DS game I really want never comes out, if time could stop and one day would wind up repeated over and over and over, that would probably be the most amazing thing to ever happen to me. I'd be able to catch up on sooooo much sleep u___u
