"it prints money"

Hyper_Tension1401624d ago

Lol you got that right, the 3DS is basically a money printer for Nintendo and the Wii U is a paper shredder.

mohuzas1624d ago

the WiiU will make them money as well, just not as much as the 3DS.

When the 3DS was released people all over the Internet said it is a failure just as they do now with wii u. 3DS was a launch disaster and now Nintendo turned it into one of the best selling gaming devices. Why don't they have some faith in wiiu...?

Different market. Nintendo absolubtely destroy in the handheld market, it was surprising that the 3DS didn't sell that well in the first year.

Games consoles however, the Wii was a lucky break, The cube sold poorly and the the N64 before it.
This is most likely why people think the Wii U will follow in the footsteps of its predecessors. The fad of the Wii is gone now, those casuals have moved on to their ipads and what have you. So now the audience for another Wii is very small, just other loyal Nintendo fans.

edit- And don't get me wrong, I LOVED the N64 and Cube, the Wii however, not so much. Once they make a new WaveRace with no gimmicks, I'm all over the Wii U.

Zelda, Monster Hunter, and many many others.

I have both the Vita and the 3DS and I cant deny the Vita is a far more advanced portable console.....but!!! I play my 3DS alot more because of its games and I KNOW everyone that has both could agree with me.
EDIT:But the Vita has been doing better lately and 2014 looks like the year the Vita can truly shine.

savaroth1624d ago

Bravely Default, Fire Emblem, Zelda. It's not like the 3DS has nothing but Pokemon.

Too bad the 3DS wasn't made more comfortable to hold like the Vita.

Could've done with a better thumbstick too.

Gabenbrah1624d ago

VITA comfortable... Umm have you held that atrociously designed device? And your bashing the 3DS thumb sticks when the VITAs are awful, they're tiny.

dcj05241624d ago

How are you guys holding your VITA? Lol. The Vita is more comfartable than the 3DS. As comfortable as the 3DS XL and the 2DS is the most comfortable.You have to rest the VITA on your middle fingers. Its the best way to hold it.

for we are many1624d ago (Edited 1624d ago )


I have both and the vita is almost impossible to hold comfortably without the grip (PDP or others), it's a well known issue with the vita. The older 3DS model had that issue but to a lesser degree, 3DS XL is comfortable to hold, and 2DS is the most comfortable handheld ever to hold.

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory1623d ago

agreed. I have both. I had my 3DS for 2 years and rarely feels uncomfortable. But had a Vita and it already making my hand hurt.

just-joe1624d ago

The Vita could have done better with games people want to play.

dcj05241623d ago

It did though. It has quite a few good-amazing games. But Sony has no idea how to advertise them people STILL in 2014 call my PS VITA "the new psp' and many don't know the games for it because nobody told them. On the other hand EVERYBODY knows about Pokemon X and Y because nintendo actually told people it exsist. Tearaway has NO ads in the US and
very little in the UK. I haven't seen a VITA ad in the states since November 2012.
