The 3DS has gotten a lot of flak since its trouble-ridden launch this past March. Those seven months have been something of a roller coaster ride for the system, and especially for its early adopters. Given that the 3DS had some serious issues - most notably a hefty price tag, a dismal battery life and a meager software library - a lot of this heat is understandable, and even warranted.
I don't think the lack of games was the main problem. In fact it was one of many problems
The 3DS was just not very well planned out overall, the added second analouge stick for example prooves that...it looks stupid and cheap. Something like that should of been there from the start.........lets not forget the ridiculous launch price.
Nintendo are not perfect and people really have got to stop defending them and call them out when they do something wrong. I mean the ONM made it look like Nintendo were being generous to the fans and that's why they lowered the price and gave out the 10 free downloadable games.........but we all know the real reason.
Wow a positive nintendo article from ign..............have pigs started flying? Either way its nice to see.
The 3ds is doing very very well now. Better than the ds did in terms of games, sales of both hardware and software at the same point (fact)
dragon quest, ff, monster hunter, mario are all landing on the system soon amongst other things. Then take cover.
Nintendo has a real shot at that 16 million fiscal target which would be higher in the first fiscal year than pretty much any nintendo system ever
Yea all Nintendo is doomed articles need to be postponed for now. Once we're in January we can start analysing things properly.
If the holiday sales are dissapointing then yea you can say they're in trouble but if not, then it's back to business as usual.
It all begins with Super Mario 3D Land releasing this thursday in Japan. Lets wait and see
