Nintendo confirmed via email that they have stopped producing and shipping Mario Strikers Charged, Battalion Wars 2, and Wario Land: Shake It! Why would Nintendo stop producing and shipping these games now?
This does not bode too well.
It doesn't make sense to me, but I'm not swimming in piles of cash like Nintendo is.
What's the big deal? Those games are two years old and probably not selling much anymore. It may be unfortunate for late Wii buyers, however Nintendo shouldn't have to keep shipping games past their prime.
I know the games are at least two years old, but it's your second part as to why I'm confused a little by this. Nintendo has had a lot of late purchasers of the Wii, so why not keep the games around for those people to be able to try and pick up? I understand new games come out often, and maybe it's just Nintendo making more shelf space for their new games or something, I don't know.
Well they may only produce more when their last shipments are gone, especially considering these aren't evergreen titles. Or it might simply not be worth it... although it's also a good way to build up demand quickly like with Metroid Prime Trilogy.
Are you talking about how Nintendo stopped producing Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, to make demand Metroid Prime: Trilogy?
So did Battalion wars not sell a lot or something? I heard it was a pretty okay game on the Wii and one I should have looked into. Wondering why they made this choice.
they might aswell stop shipping wii aswell. bring on the wiihd
2009 numbers Wii - 19 million 360 - 9 million ps3 - 11 million What would you do?
If the "analysts" are right about the sale numbers for the consoles just in December 2009, the Wii sold more than 3 million consoles just in that month. I guess we'll have to wait until Jan. 14, for official NPD data on console sales.
haha Wii Sales = Ps3 sales + 360 sales Where are you Wii HD???:
The 2009 numbers are crazy. I almost wonder if Wii HD is coming sooner(this year), than later. Maybe like the DSi, where it's an upgrade of sorts, but not a complete changing of the system.
There are probably alot of those games floating around. That's probably why nintendo is stopping manufacture of them. they probably need the game manufacturing resources for their huge 2010 lineup. All those games not shipping represents more resources to produce more copies of the new zelda, the new metroid and a possible brand new zelda. I'm guessing well see trilogy make a comeback in a conventional plastic case and booklet. Meanwhile... coffee.... those comics are neither clever, funny or well drawn. I'd recommend keeping your webcomic humor to yourself. Those are just sad. 2 comics based on the same dumb joke as done by a 3 year old with absolutely no creativity.
before we seal them in the Nintendo vault forever...
At least Disney runs tv commercials, announcing the "locking up" of their movies. Nintendo just let these game seemingly go away.
