Really? Only talking from my own experience here, never had a problem with them and the guy was always super-cooperative. Then again only ever had a problem with Zavvi once (which was resolved in the end) in over dozens of orders. Maybe I'm just lucky? I did get scammed over the ye olde shop two CC leak though.

Replace cheeseburger with Döner or Currywurst, Hummer with BMW or Mercedes and we are not that different. Although we like to burn our money to let others heat their home while we burn even more money to reduce the amount of money we burn to heat our house and then be all "eco" about it.

they're two different games. presumably if a publisher/developer is making a new game and they want to sell it for 60 dollars they'd make it with enough content to warrant such a purchase.

I've only been to a mall Gamestop twice for a midnight launch. Halo 3 and MGS4. My friend and brother walked out to his car during Halo 3 and the security guard had no idea there was a line inside when they tried explaining it to him. So, there is a chance I guess?

Thats true. I have mw2 (360) with all of the dlc and Id rather play on the original maps too.

$60 for it is wayyyy overpriced. You get basically the same game on iOS for $2 (well basically...)

That being said, the Ninty characters have me in at Day 1 ... and the pre-order bonus from gamestop is ADORABLE!

1) Nintendo is cheap when it comes to batteries
2) The battery needed would be huge, when the actual battery bay in the Pro controller is even smaller than the 3DS one.

That would put it in between 10-20 hours runtime. Which isn't bad, but 80 is just downright utopic to claim.

I'm only getting it for $40 (love ya NewEgg) and I think that's fair... it's the most I would pay for it. I think $60 is too much for it.

Well the iOS version has worse controls and is a weird combination (half and half port) of the first two games, which are a couple of years old now.

Could it be an eshop game? Sure. But that doesnt necessarily have to mean the game is devalued.

I like the idea of using the gamepad as the screen if the TV is busy. Is there anyway of telling which games support being played purely on the game pad ?

it doesn't appear on gamepad play is a requirement for development on the WiiU. Essentially the WiiU can be a console level handheld thats tethered to your house, this feature is being under played in my opinion.

The iPad version seems like Scribblenauts-lite to me. Don't know why, it just did. I'd be happy to pay more for a full on experience, if that exists. Is there any actual difference between the "casual" platform versions and the console?

Edit: answered on this page, sorry.

So yeah, I'd pay full price for the full game, and the ipad/phone version is worth its price.

They are. The battery life on the 3DS is inacceptable. Had they increased the size just for a few centimeters it could've improved the battery life to acceptable levels.
On Wii they went with AA batteries instead of putting in a battery for the hefty price you pay for a Wiimote.
Even though the XL is better it's still only 4-5 hours charge is still pathethicly low.
Same goes for the Gamepad. 3-5 hours for a controller is just downright pathethic, especially given how much room they could work with.

Nintendo has been really cheap this gen to the detriment of the player experience.

I don't care for flops and hertz, but when they start screwing up stuff like battery life thats where I draw the line.

The 3DS XL has better battery than the Vita, and the 3DS has the same as the Vita so your point is pretty invalid.

I highly doubt it will be much cheaper. The prices on consoles don't change that much between retailers, sadly. Not a lot of deals, either.

Edit: the interview is actually from March 2009.

So I went through that Iwata interview a bit more thoroughly. Some more interesting stuff:

Question: "When you felt a sense of danger regarding the shrinking game market, did your employees and engineers also share that same sentiment?"

Iwata: "It's unlikely that every employee is going to thoroughly believe the company president when he says something will be 'the next big thing'. Although, Yamauchi might've been capable of doing that. He's super charismatic, and was able to take Nintendo from a mere local Hanafuda and card company to a 'world-wide Nintendo'. His words have a different weight to them, as a result. I'm much younger than he is, plus I came to Nintendo as an outsider of the company."

Iwata then goes on to say that there was a bit of resistance, but bit by bit, he was able to convince his employees that moving the company direction to try and expand the audience could work. Things really started to change, both internally at Nintendo and with their game audience when Brain Training broke out as a hit.

Question: "Currently, Nintendo is in very good shape. Does the company ever tend to lose its will to challenge [the market]?"

Iwata: "There was a time when Nintendo systems were not the mainstream system. We were frustrated that the market and consumers had preconceived notions about our products-- ones that we put our all into making-- and wouldn't accept them. Even in stores, our products were placed in the back section, which was another reason why they were unable to reach consumers. This was a bitter experience for us, and a number of our employees still feel that way. On the other hand, the employees we were able to pick up in the past three years or so, only know of 'the Nintendo that's performing well'. I'm a little concerned that there's an ever-expanding group of people that didn't experience our tougher times.

However, I believe that many of our employees understand that we're not always going to have the tailwind on our side, because above all else, this is a market in which 'entertainment' doesn't always follow the same formulas for success."

- NOA management were the ones that came up with the phrase "from ages 5 to 95".
- Iwata feels that if he was unable to show results with this new direction (expanding the audience) for the company after 5 years or so, he likely would've been fired.
- He's very thankful for being able to meet Professor Kawashima, and that a bunch of people supported Brain Training.

Yeah the ridiculous idea that the battery in the Pro would last 80 hours on a single charge.
I was pointing out that with Nintendo cutting corners on batteries such a figure is merely a pipe dream. 10 to 20 hours is what you can expect from the PRO.

The PS3 controller last 30 hours, If they did lie about 80 hours than it will be at least 30 hours as well.

Posted on the Wallmart thread, something to note that it says pre ordered consoles will arrive on November 14th.

Would there be enough room in the 3DS to do this? I agree that 80 hours sounds unrealistic based on the other similar controllers though.

Do you fully charge it? The green battery icon gets full maybe after one hour charge, but it takes about 2 hours or so to do a full charge. So even if the battery icon shows it is full, it isnt. Not sure why it is like this, but it is like this on my Nokia phone too.

From that screenshots page, strangely, the only screens that got me mildly excited were for NintendoLand and Pikmin 3. I don't know if those were the most graphically impressive games or if it was just me seeing 1st party Nintendo games as I've never seen them before. I don't think I'm gonna be really blown away until I start seeing more 1st party games from the system from a visual standpoint. The only exception is Rayman Legends, the screens to which look like freaking concept art.
