Nintendo shamelessly commodifies Chinese New Year

Nintendo reduces the Year of the Dragon to nothing but a marketing gimmick.

SybaRat2305d ago's not like they're Chinese and actually subscribe to the Chinese calendar, now is it?

I'm not bothered by this at all, but I'm neither Chinese or a dragon. :/

Bitmob needs to get the stick out of its ass.

Yea they do. Trolling for hits I guess.

Well of course. The Japanese HATE the Chinese. Didn't this writer catch the South Park episode where Butters - I mean the owner of City Wok - had multiple personalities.

Ha Ha :)

I couldn't finish reading this...
Look, everyone does this. Play asia, a hong kong based store does this yearly(at least they did it the past 2 years that I know of.)
@sobari that's what I'm thinking after reading this.
Saying this is offensive is like saying black friday is offensive to Christians.(although, I personally consider BF to be offensive to all of humanity, so maybe it isn't a very good example...)

Ugh, just reread my comment...
I really *am*in a bad mood today... >_<;
