Nintendo president of America Reggie Fils-Aime is probably kidding (half-kidding) when he wonders what's wrong with people who don't have or want a Nintendo 3DS. Consider it a milder form of him kicking your ass and taking your name.
Lol that was funny.
it should be " whats wrong with the 3DS?"
If you mean that as you think 3ds has flaws reggie wont admit you're half right 3ds has flaws but all of them he has admited to and is trying to fix. The reason he said waht he did is because 3ds has great games coming soon and a lowered price(it could be cheaper sure but come on it's only been 6ish months) You may think vita sounds better and maybe it will be but we don't know that yet all we know is 3ds is already out and will have good games by the end of the year.
So it took Nintendo a whole year to drop a good game for the 3DS aka Mario?.... Sad
I did own one and I probably will buy one again (at some point) but not until the version with dual analogs is released. That's a major upgrade in my opinion. I don't care so much for changing the size of a device, but adding something that will definitely effect gameplay is worth waiting on. And yes, the next 3DS, even if it releases in a year or two from now, will have dual analogs built.
It won't because that would split the user base
5 million 3DS's sold verses 100 million DS's, it won't split sh**.
And they they would put the offer to trade the old with the new one - that would be great
The DSi didn't split the audience. Motion+ hasn't split the audience. The addon is there so I can't see why Nintendo shouldn't add the second analog to their revision. In fact, I think is even more crazy not too add it. Vita will be out thus competition at last. Second, many people who are waiting for the second revision are waiting for the second analog. If I don't see a second analog, I'm going to wait for the 3rd and enjoy the Vita.
There won't be any reason to make a two stick revision at all unlessthe slide pad add on takes of, proving that the concept is worth implementing in a standard fasion. The earliest I see such a revision coming is next holiday season, but only if the add on has enough Third party support. Addition: basically, splitting the user base has less to do with the matter than practical necessity, or lack thereof.
Me: Why wasn't dual analog stick in the design to begin with? "What's wrong with you?" true story
I wanted one, then I saw that it was a big ripoff with nothing that really interested me in it's 6 month lineup. The launch was terrible, the price was too much. Then I realized Nintendo is screwing us with the 3DS like putting Luigi's Mansion 2 on it, why the hell not put this one Wii or Wii U where it would fit? Forcing people to buy a mediocre handheld to play direct sequels? Even the new Mario Kart is such a step down from the DS or Wii versions. The online is still terrible, the store is less than impressive and the features are not doing it for me. I will buy a 3DSLiteXL down the road but not anytime soon. Sad really because I have owned every DS and I loved that system. Nintendo really needs to get it's stuff together. And I don't like Reggie or Nintendo of America. Y U NO LOCALIZE XENOBLADE OR LAST STORY?!
Isn't Xenoblade out in US?? It's been out in UK for like three months so I can't imagine it's localisation that's an issue...
Yeah. Because Reggie has TOTAL control over NOA, with no one above him. And keep your rage in until Next year.
"If you Don’t Own or Want a 3DS, "What’s wrong with you?" I happen to have a brain.
Relative free will and no interest.
Reggie...i'mma be straight with you, I put aside $400+ dollars for one handheld that'll last me the next 5years and that's the Ps Vita so better luck next time.
I'll wait for yellow/gold/orange 3DS with a smaller price tag and some interesting games.
I have two PSPs but don't own any Nintendo handheld console. Just don't care out the design or types of games on it.
What's wrong with me? I don't buy things that don't interest me, especially handhelds whose library consists primarily of remakes of old games in a sort of pseudo-3D fashion.
...no remakes? Then your not going to get a vita either? Addition: You know, the vita has alot of remakes and ports too.
i sold my 3ds because its useless and outdated piece of junk no gaems
criticizing people for your inability to engineer a device that people want to buy? nice.
Because the PS Vita has made it redundant.
Go on... The Vita has every control scheme known to man...and a back touch panel which is NOT known to man yet, an INSANELY good launch lineup, support from every major developer, a dedicated network platform with very solid online features, trophies, 3G (if you want it), Skype, cross-game chat, and...to top it all off...does cross-platform play with the PS3. Why settle for a couple of features when you can have everything? It only does everything...on the go. ;)
Yes you could just disagree you dont need to tell me :P
I have to agree. ^^
I guess something is truly wrong with me then. I do not have a 3DS and dont plan on getting one for awhile longer. LOL
What's Wrong With You? Thinking i was paying 250+tax for a handheld console
Nobody had a problem doing it when the PSP came out...and they definitely won't have a problem doing it with the Vita. Uncharted and Katamari at launch?!? Sign me up!
Exactly 250 is fine for a handheld if it has good games which 3ds and vita why i have a 3ds and will get a vita when it comes out.
I know I already pointed that out in previous discussions on the 3DS launch price, and really if you look at what was built in to both systems the 3DS was so much more worth it. The PSP had almost nothing built in, people seem to ignore this fact. So I really don't see what the problem was, and yet they STILL want it to be cheaper.
Reggie I have nothing against the 3DS, I think its a fine device with some fine games I'm really interested on... BUT! My question to you is... Where are the NA release dates for Xenoblade and Last Story for the Wii?
I think they will release next year, seeing as how the wiiu won't launch until the holidays and they have nothing else for the wii until then. And if they came out this year, Zelda would maul them to death.
Nintendo: If you don't own Wii or 3ds, what's wrong with you? Me: nothings wrong with me, it's just that, I don't have money.. I'm poor.. So the question is what's wrong with you?, why you acting like that? nintendo: nothing, we are just desperate.
Its number 1 worldwide so obviously people want it..............
I don't think their's anything wrong with me. Whats wrong with his chin though, so shiny.
No nothing is wrong with people not wanting the 3DS, something is wrong with you Nintendo for putting out a incomplete product.We all know you first overcharged gamers for this product and will also release a better model next year with the built in second analog stick which shows you were wrong in the first place.
Well seeing as how at the moment there isnt anything new worth playing, i have a damn good reason not to own on now. And when i say new i mean NEW, not remade 64 games. As much as i love those games, i have already beaten them countless times. I want games like Luigi's Mansion 2, Super Smash, Kid Icarus etc. Oh and i will DEFINITLY be waiting for the first remodel, you know, the one that will have the extra joystick built into it.
sorry reggie saving for the vita =/
well because kids already own DS and rather prefer spending money on games than a brand new handheld. Im happy with my PSP and if im gonna replace it im going with the Vita of course.
For me,chalk it down to lack of interest in the software available for it.Still,I might buy it once it has a nice library of third-party games...I could care less for Nintendo franchises.
My answer. I buy what I deem worth buying. And to me the 3DS isn't worth it yet. Once Nintendo has a solid library and releases a 3DS offering 2 circles pads instead of one. Then I will buy one. In the mean time I will have a vita to play with. XperiaRay
Uh, why one analog stick and Wii graphics Nintendo?
being condescending to your audience... that oughtta win customers
You guys do know that this statement was just a cheesy one liner in a glo...rified commercial, right? Your taking this WAY to seriously... Edit- oops, stupid tablet messed up the word "glorified".
i'm not impressed by the software yet
he was half joking when he said it, doesn't make it seem less pitiful
'True Pokemon fans know that Pokemon Rumble blast blah blah blah' Actually true Pokemon fans know that Pokemon Rumble Blast is not only a waste of time and money, it's also a thorn in our side reminding us just how far away you guys are from even considering a true MMORPG... What's wrong with YOU Reggie...
