Nintendo Is Giving Away One of Its Best Games

Nintendo (NASDAQOTH: NTDOY ) is a company in crisis: Its latest living room video game console, the Wii U, hasn't sold nearly as well as Nintendo had anticipated, and sales of its handheld video game machine, the 3DS, have also come in far short of expectations. (3DS, Nintendo, Pokemon X and Y)

"Company in crisis" Right. Hardly in crisis, just needs to revise their plans to add spark to their current console. Though good game to give away

You know how the media is now. All three console makers are "Companies in Crisis". Hopefully all these "so called" journalists are wrong.

This guy should've just gone straight into explaining how to get Pokemon for free and be done with it. His rambling about Nintendo's situation was unnecessary.

Good read... This is very alarming for Nintendo the WiiU isn't doing good and the 3DS isn't selling to their standards to the point that they have to give away a brand new Pokemon game. ;)

Another so called "Journalist" taking shots at Nintendo for hits to there site. The 3DS was named the best selling console of last year. Nintendo has sold something like 14 million games as of last year. So now all of a sudden when you buy a 3DS XL and one of the participating games you get Pokémon X or Y for free and this is now somehow the company in danger? All I see is a great deal!

I just bought my 3DS XL last month with Bravely Default, Pokémon Y, and Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon. I was bummed to see this deal pop up this month. Could of snagged a free game out of the deal. Way I see it if you were picking up a 3DS XL and one of these games you get a free digital copy of Pokémon X or Y for free. Nothing bad about this.

Yea, sure, the Wii U is not selling like gangbusters but it is holding a decent set of sales. Nintendo is about to release one of its biggest tittles in just 2 MONTHS. Now is a better time then EVER to grab a Wii U.
