Can we discuss Nintendos problems?

Itoi is a celebrity in Japan. He does whatever he wants.

Anyway, tying purchases to hardware is awful. Downright awful. However, losing your games can be avoided under most circumstances if you write down your registration code and keep it somewhere.

No, I'm not defending this.

Anyway, as much as I hate the lack of attention Nintendo's other franchises get I can't even blame them for it. Kid Icarus Uprising got outsold in 2012 by New Super Mario Bros. U. No, I'm not surprised that Mario outsold Kid Icarus. I'm surprised that Mario outsold a game that came out in the spring by releasing at the end of the year in the middle of the month.

Look at Custom Robo too. Hell, go find the sales for F-Zero GX while we're at it. Clearly, the consumers who enjoy these games in comparison to just Mario and Zelda are in the minority. It's a shame.

Nintendo's #1 problem: Smash Bros isn't ready yet.
I'm not changing this until a new Jet Set Radio is announced. Started 10/13/11
