Day 1 DLC with Mario Golf World Tour

Commercial DLC with a Mercedes in Mario Kart 8

Releasing very similar games with NSMB titles

Subscription fees for games like Pokemon Bank and Wii Sports Club

Rereleasing the same game with Wind Waker HD and Ocarina of Time 3D

Gimped online store (Origins and eShop)

as well as other things

Should be noted that most things on the list, happened between 2011-2013, AKA the 8th gen, so this is a recent trend

Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. It is the spirit of men who follow and of the man who leads that gains the victory.--General Patton

I'd agree Nintendo has fallen into some of the pitfalls of HD development, yes.

I think they're referring to the $2 for a 24-hour pass.

If they are, they're still wrong.

Some of these reasons are like everybody else on the market.

Day 1 DLC with Mario Golf World Tour


The game was complete without DLC and the DLC adds an enormous amount of new courses

Commercial DLC with a Mercedes in Mario Kart 8


It's free DLC

Releasing very similar games with NSMB titles


I suppose.

Subscription fees for games like Pokemon Bank


Pokemon Bank is a service, not a game

Rereleasing the same game with Wind Waker HD and Ocarina of Time 3D


Both games have new content, upgraded graphics, and new features.

Gimped online store

e-shop isn't gimped. I search for a game. I buy the game. It works just like literally any other online store.
