Nintendo Gal goes through Nintendo's newest financial report, and comes out with some interesting observations.
I'm surprised anyone buys your games nintendo.
Expected, IMO. I've always bought and enjoyed home console games more than handheld games. I have 17 Wii games, 20 PS3 games and 22 PC games. In comparison, I have 10 Gameboy Advance games and 7 PSP games.
DS doesn't have too many games to be honest.
DS has far more better games then the PSP does.
Truthfully, I pretty much only buy the handheld systems for Pokemon and maybe another couple of games per generation.
Is it also because the DS is heavily pirated and it was easier to buy the R4 than to softmod the Wii? Plus the prices of portable games kinda turn me off since they're almost as expensive as the console ones.
^ This. I think R4 is also legal in some region right?
There really isn't any legal action taken against the R4 on some countries. The DS games are the easiest to pirate because of their size along with the cheap price of the memory cards and the R4. Plus it's so easy to find sites that let you download the games so it might really affect the overall sales of the DS.
I'm with you on that one and thanks for the clarification.
I would buy a lot more Wii games if they would actually lower the price on their exclusives. Most places still have the first Mario galaxy for 50. If they lower their exclusive games to 30 after two years on the market I would be more interested.
Wii owners are probably more likely to buy their own games, DS owners have to rely on their parents. Yeah, I said it.
