Stop talking about the 3DS!! Really people we get that for some reason everyone in the world thinks it's doomed. Wait untill the price drop and new games come. Then if it's still a failure you have as much reason as the next guy to complain about it for whatever reason. Why does everyone think the 3DS will fail over the DS? It's really not in any different of a spot than the DS. The price drop changes things but the only way can be a good way. Sales will at least increase a little with this.

There is no way, with the amount of time this article has been up, that you watched it. Stop bitching without knowing what you're talking about.

I'm sorry I didn't want to waste an hour and a half of my life listening to something I already read almost every day. Something saying Nintendo is dead, or we need old Nintendo, or the 3DS is doomed, or something stupid. I'm just saying people need to stop bringing it up. Wait it out to see what happens with the 3DS and then if it does fail for whatever reason than write whatever you want. Throw a parade for all I care. But why don't people just wait it out instead of trying to write something else about Nintendo's doom. I bet if Nintendo actually did fail and stopped making games everyone so worried about Nintendo doom stories would be upset.

Its not just the 3Ds. Nintendo lost the magic when they sold out to the casuals. Gamecube was the last great console they ever made and probably will make.

nintendo hasnt lost any magic besides new l;ittle sony gamers talking crazy...last i check their games sold the most any console generations and they are still the ones innovating..

Honda's sell more than Lamborghini's and Ferrari's, what's the better car?

Lf_sIcKmAn2361d ago

yeah but, which one can you afford the most? there´s a counter-argument to any argument...

DeleteThisxx2361d ago

@Sickman, That's besides the point, he's using sales as an example when clearly sales have nothing to do with what is "good" or "bad"

Nintendo messed up with the marketing of the 3DS in a big way. Charging 250 euros for it was way to much which is why many people didnt want to buy it. Obviously due to the tremendous success of the DS and Wii Nintendo wanted to taek advantage of 3DS owners by making a big profit off the handheld. At least Nintendo saw the mistake they were making with the price and dropped it. And now this holiday season the 3DS will sell quite well.

Yes they have...what people fail to realize is how fast nintendo is loosing popularity over this.......they no longer are looked at as perfect nintendo

Unfortunately people are starting to see them for what they are...that new zelda is not srlling well either about some new ip's nintendo ... Come on man Mario cart 7 ? That just wont cut it anymore
