The 3DS Situation Gives Me a Headache
I really would like to buy a 3DS but with everything that has happened, I have been put off buying one. I'll start with the recent butt fuck in my opinion with the second analog stick thingy attachment they are releasing. Looking at the thing it reminds me of the Sega Mega Drive (Genesis) attachments like the 32X or the CD. I know they are probably going to release a redesign with it built in but how much will that cost, as much as it was when it first launched, even more or will they do the decent thing of keeping to the price the current one is at the moment.
Another thing that puts me off is the colours you have to choose from, neither of them appeal to me, when will a greed or red one be released, when they cram the redesign down our throats. Plus I hate the fact that fingerprints easily shown on the thing, you think they would have learned their lesson from the last time they did that, it is easy to get sweaty palms from that.
Where are the Gameboy Advanced games, I want games like Pokemon, Advance Wars, Fire Emblem, Metroid Zero Mission and Yu-Gi-Oh, if they say they will never release these games on the 3DS one more time, I will fly to Japan and take a dump at the front door of their head office. That is a bad business decision because there are people like me who would love to buy those games and they would make a shit ton of money, they could have more it prints money animated gifs about it.
One last thing, where is the new 3DS version of Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon, at least one of those games at launch would have gotten me to buy one.
First off... I would like to tell you that the red 3DS is actually available now to buy! I found out today when Nintendo sent me their weekly e-mail of games that were being released.
I've made this statement before but the 3DS, so far, has been a great disappointment for me. The system sold only as well as it did because of promised games like Kid Icarus, Ocarina of Time, and other great titles. However, the initial launch line up and the current list of titles is abysmal at best. Nintendo needs to realize that software sells hardware long term. They should of waited till the November/December time frame, and had the launch line up consist of Mario Kart 7, OoT 3D, Kid Icarus, MGS3D, Super Mario 3D, Star Fox and what ever else was planned for release. They would have sold even more 3DSs, a shit load of software, and never would have needed to do a price drop.
