Nintendo has announced Wii/DS sales figures for Black Friday week.
The moms that bought the DS for their kid should have done research. They are gonna be pissed when their kid asks for the 3DS in like 4 months.
^^Thats the truth right there.
should of got them a psp, oh wait never mind.
actually prolly not, cuz the moms will be able to say "i already got you something so play it!!!" instead of shelling out the ludicrous 300+ bux, she'd have to consider the 3ds if the kid had nothing "maybe next xmas"...but we all know what maybe means
I doubt that changes kids minds. they was stuff NOW. They will have to wait next Christmas... if they been really good.
3DS releases close to income tax time. it'll sell big
So it'll be as popular as an Ipad. No more, "Is the Wii dead?" articles I suppose.
loll just wait at least 2 week youll see ''wii is teh doom cause move+kinect iz here''

Nintendo - selling technology from 2000 for $150 bucks a pop. Nintendo defines casuals now. IMO
not by quality lol ps3 , xbox kill nitendo with their games [email protected]: What you mean those Mario Zelda Metroid games ?... same old stuff for lil kids boring there is not 1 new ip worth playing for wii .. sad ok no innovation is very good hah? lol
if its simply quality tittles nintendo has always been putting those out so i dunno what your talking about EDIT: you just proved your ignorance you said QUALITY the FACT of the matter is whether you like em or not said games are QUALITY tittles hence my point nintendo themselves have always released quality tittles
last story and xeno blade are new ips they release new ips all the time actually just because they aren't as big as mario or zelda doesn't mean they aren't there i bet you couldn't even define innovation i noticed ALLOT of people like to throw that word around without actually even knowing how to actually define it
hey go ahead and try to change the point to innovation and new ips doesn't change the fact you just just showed how ignorant and somewhat dumb you are with your own comment my point still stands you said QUALITY and nintendo has ALWAYS released QUALITY tittles
very ignorant statement indeed Greek God and you call yourself a gamer? you make me ashamed to be one! enjoy all games on all systems, as long as its a good game!
NO MORE HEROES LAST STORY OPOONA ARC RISE FANTASIA and many more new IP's are worth playing
Super Mario galaxy 1&2 outclass the entire exclusive offerings of 360. New IP or not what matters most is if the game is fun.
Holy crap... How? Man, Nintendo pretty much OWNED this gen. Damn the casuals!
SMG 1-2 casuals?Zelda?Metroid?MH3? DS many JRPG casual?Final Fantasy,Dragon Quest,etc?Castlevania? 3DS 2011 casual?Zelda,Resident,MGS?
zelda was casual i beat that game dying about 3 times and ganadof only to took 2 tries....
I'm well aware of Nintendo's incredible games. But to call them "hardcore" is a bit of a stretch don't you think? What I'm trying to say is that compared to "old" Nintendo, "new" Nintendo is for casuals. Doesn't matter anyway. I will always love Nintendo no matter what. I can't imagine a world where Mario,Zelda, and Donkey Kong never existed lol.
@InvaderZim: I share the same opinion. I grew up on those games. As long as they keep their core in place I will always have room for Nintendo. Casual or not.
yeah i agree with not calling wii hardcore cause anyway the word hardcore lost his meaning. but dont tell me that watching a movie going to internet, listening to music, watching picture, sharing stuff in facebook, and more is hardcore come on be serious twitter? to twitt my friend when im playing?!?! is hardcore?
Its moronic to label Nintendo as either exclusively hardcore or casual. They make games that appeal to both groups and people of all ages. However you can attribute their wild success with hardware sales predominantly to the casual crowd. Not a bad thing by any means. As long as they keep making fun and imaginative games that's the most important thing. Also I just want to add that kinect is more casual than anything offered for the wii.
... Business as usual then, It seems.
ITS PRINTS MONEY!!
you forgot the second part... "And we don't even have to make games for them!!!"
Yeah, there's a lot of mediocre casual titles, but people seem to think that that's all the DS is good for. There's actually a good amount of solid core games. There's not many blood and guts 'hardcore' games, but a number of games on the system are far from casual.
Too bad new IT crowd eps wont be around till 2011.
i agree with wingman32x i just finished one scnéraio of 9-9-9 and it's f.... excellent . also i fail to see how DRAQUE 9 is casual too
@turok, no doubt... maybe if we all stand with our backs to the stars and wish hard enough they will come sooner!
Lol. That picture always makes me laugh.
That's crazy. But the DS has always sold extremely well. However, I think the 3DS is going to suffer from what I like to call "PS3 Syndrome", meaning the high initial price is going to mean a slow start for the system IMO. But once the first price drop hits I think it'll be good to go. I don't think the 3DS is going to exceed the DS' sales.
During Black Friday you should have seen the wii's piled up at my bestbuy. There had to be over 200 hundred of them in a pile. Nobody was buying them.
Becuz they was buying HDTV's and other cheap stuff. 32' HDTV for $300 is a steal. Wii's are easy to find cheap.
I dont like Mario games/Zelda yes!/But look metatric: SMG2:9.6 Megagiga HD,amazing,much hype,60 millio dollars,5 years development,killer app,system seller,hardcore game,epic etc. GT5:8.5 :O
I'm sorry but your point is kinda invalid. You CAN'T use metacritic as an example. In fact, listening to reviews in general is really not the way to go. Need proof? Watch the IGN video review of GT5. They call it the BEST racing game ever and then give it a 8.5 I believe. Pathetic. So really you should always play a game before judging it. Never listen to reviewers. Nintendo's games don't deserve the super high ratings they get sometimes. But I guess that's just my opinion. Eveyone should decide for themselves.
you re not alone
I play a game,and judging it./GT5/ SMG2 masterpiece,true.
wonder where them "wii is doomed" articles now. blokes certainly didnt see this coming.
Lol, I don't think even Nintendo saw this kind of success coming from the Wii. It was a gamble at the time. They might say they weren't surprised, but I think they would be lying. You can't NOT be surprised by that kind of success, especially after finishing last the previous generation.
Nintendo dominates again...so let all the hater "casual" comments start up again..Nintendo makes the best game-PERIOD! Black ops sucks and so do most overrated,overhyped,overbudget ed pieces of crap for those other systems..i'll stick with my masterpieces while you guys keep hyping up games that no one will be talking about even three months from now..
Nintendo setting the merks. And with that may I add, Golden Sun Dark Dawn in less than a month!!!
Nintendo won this gen hands down. 2010 is the Wii's year AGAIN. Best games PERIOD. When Wii is $149, grab the tissues haters. Ownage continues. 3DS will own 2011 hands down! :)
you forgot to add DJ Khaled's favorite line: Wii da best!
holy crap! well, i gotta hand it to nintendo they sure as hell now what theyre doing! obviously. microsoft and sony think so, or they would be no kinect and move!!! HD graphics or not! donkey kong country is definately worth buying a Wii for, alone! i have maybe a small stack of games i keep my Wii for and that is definately one of them. epic mickey, goldeneye, dkc, nsmb, mario galaxy, house of the dead, sonic colors etc! they have a few that are well worth it. im more about my ps3, but its nice to play some of the classics once in awhile! right on nintendo, still going strong!
id buy another wii if you could transfer wiiware and virutal console games you already purchased onto a second personal wii. But since nintendo doesnt allow this they are losing more sales.
