NFC is the future of gaming. Not VR. Not 3D. Not 4k resolution. And certainly not cloud gaming.

When is a serious NFC Pokemon game gonna come out?

After seeing the destruction Pokemon cards wrought, I think Nintendo won't follow suit.

Pokemon exists since 1995... You're comparing it to a franchise that was made in the middle of the 7th gen.

Also this is 2b in Q1 2014. Not total sales of Skylanders series.

It ruined Spyro but if you ignore he exists it's still revolutionary NFC goodies.

Skylanders is alright, but only on the 3DS. Playing as Spyro and Cynder (and only them) really makes it feel like a classic (although crappier) Spyro game...if you can get past his ugly look.

2 billion seems low for Skylanders. Is that profit or revenue? I would expect a billion a game at least.

If I support the game company, then I won't be supporting the blank DVD business.

What? No. They only turned down on exclusivism, and only because nobody knew the glory of NFC.

If you have been reading the news you should know Nintendo WILL showcase some NFC game they made for Wii U this E3.

Dunno if it will be as glorious as Skylanders/Infinity but maybe they really are learning.
