Wow massive retail games are doing well considering the low install base.

if this doesn't put a bug in their ass about online importance, i dont know what will

Misaka_x_Touma2031d ago

Miyamoto said online was important in 3D World not Nintendo in general. Cause he work Luigi Mansion Dark Moon and it has online

I'm debating still if I should get a wii u, the new bundle with SMB is enticing and comes with the additional lugi DLC for $299

Well the Wii U certainly has some interesting games and SMBU might not be the most innovating entry in the series, but its certainly a solid entry. Super Luigi U also has a fair bit of value, so I suggest seeing what BF offers and then possibly getting it.

in a 1,or 2 yrs nintendo should test the waters with a all digital 3ds, and maybe put a oled screen on it and call it a 3ds premium. the sooner nintendo gets out from under the boot of physical retail sellers the better.

I don't see either of those things happening. First off, for Nintendo, it's never been about the sexy hardware(you could make arguments for SNES and GCN). Second, a Nintendo experience is a FAMILY experience. Sure, Nintendo would love to sell every system an individual, non-transferrable copy of a game, but selling one hard copy that's passed amongst siblings is still better than no sale at all. My son is almost one, and I know that I'll buy a 2DS for him right at the end of the system's life cycle. You better believe that I'll be purchasing ALL games on cards from now until then.

I don't think nintendo will transfer completely to digital download in the foreseeable future, but i also wouldn't count out the possibility of a all digital 3ds or even wii u if there digital sales continue to grow. if you can cut out the the physical retailer, lower manufacture cost, lower shipping cost& make a larger profit why wouldn't you. the worst case scenario for a 3ds premium wouldn't even be as bad the psp go. sony killed that thing before it even launched by not supporting sd cards or micro sd cards& not releasing all there games digitally, but nintendo would never have any of those problems. sony to this day is killing there current handheld by still refusing to support sd cards.

3DS PREMIUM- oled screen as big or bigger then 3ds xl, no game card slot or sd card slot, but supports micro sd cards.
