When I went to GameStop, this was a very sad conversation I heard

I talk people out of pre-ordering the Wii U at my store because the system is a huge ripoff and a slap in the face from Nintendo.

More than one person returned a day or so later to thank me for saving them money.


You are a grade A idiot. Losing sales for a system - not a game, a SYSTEM, which is more money - you haven't even used yet, just to fulfill your fetish for seeing Nintendo have a remote chance at failing?

I really hope you get fired.


Why would I care how much money my corporate superiors make? I don't.
The only money there is to make in games (on a store level) is through sales of used games and warranty service plans, neither of which I care about, for one, because we do not have used games, and for two, because I don't try to sell things I do not believe in.

You belong on the blizz D3 forums, it was built for people like you. Like how some barns are built specifically to contain filthy animals.

No. That is total BS and didn't happen. Even if someone was stupid enough to listen to your nonsense and cancel their pre-order (and I doubt they would anyway since people who pre-order are not impulse buying but buying something they know they want or for someone who wants it and you aren't going to change that), no one is going to turn all delusionally anti-Nintendo like you, enough to come back and "thank you". Lie to yourself all you like. Keep making up stories to boost your fragile ego, but don't bother lying to us. It's just sad.

That is funny... I am very good friend with the General Manager from one of the 2 Gamestops here in town (I've known him for over 20 years) and he was recently at a meeting in Texas where all of the Managers from across the U.S. attended to preview the Wii U and every single launch game and he spoke very Highly of the system and the majority of games that he got to play, he did say that Nintendoland was not so great.

So why do you feel that is Nintendo ripping people off and slapping people in the face..?

I feel really sorry for the little sister.


Yeah, having awesome games does suck.

Good thing we all got PS360s, with little to no variety in the gaming library, and useless media features.
Man, do I love playing games with generic heroes, to hell with actually interesting ones like Mario, or Samus, I prefer FPS guy 41, and generic action fantasy heroine 9941.

Why settle for Kirby or Earthbound when we have stock HD 2D animu fighter, from arccomcoega?
And reboots of games from the 90's no one cares about.



ITT: Mario is an interesting character.

LOL, Where would the world be without stereotypes in order for an individual to try and form an argument.

I fail to see the problem.
Kid has a game console.
Parent buys game console for other sibling.

This is pretty normal, and in fact, good parenting. Picking favorites is bad.

Also, lolz@SATA drives. You see, they make these things called "heat," which kills consoles.

What's the problem? A Wii u will be in that kids house regardless of who it is intended for.

Marketing fail on Nintendo's part.


Howso? She, clearly a non-gamer, knew the Wii U was the next generation of Nintendo consoles rather than a new controller or some such thing. Looks like Nintendo's marketing is doing a pretty decent job. You know, considering their marketing campaign hasn't started yet.


Nintendo: People are getting confused and think the Wii U is a peripheral.
*Some time later*
Nintendo: Screw everyone, we already made the boxes.
