took a while to refind it


your basing your info on a system that done for melee back in 2002, as if sakurai still uses polls and the same approach for this game, i mean if polls really meant any thing then Riley wouldn't be a boss he'd be playble in brawl, mewtwo would of also returned in brawl based on survey and fan comment of course. their also the fact the author doesn't bother to even post a link to the official statement from Famitsu, so for all we know he could of mistranslated couple phrase, or could of elaborated half of it.

Nothing there proves that no other factors were at work. Nothing there says any characters were only added because of the poll. For all we know Sakurai could've added Marth etc with or without the poll.

In fact, this post you linked to destroys the notion that Sakurai only considers polls when perceiving popularity- according to this, one reason Sakurai added Dr. Mario because his games have good reviews. So much for the idea that he only cares about polls,

This game isn't for sale, though! It's an arcade cabinet


Arcade cabinets can be purchased.


Are people really insane enough to spend over $9000 on some arcade cabinet that only needs a quarter to play?


There's this cool thing that comes with arcade cabinets that lets you play them while keeping your money. It's called a key to the coin compartment.

There's this cool thing that drives one person to buy something that another considers not worth the cost. It's called individuals having different degrees of wilingness and ability to pay.

You... can't be serious, right?

Okay, first of all, in your typical, average arcade, the only person who has access to a key to an arcade cabinet is usually the manager of the place. Arcades don't just have keys lying around with a note saying "Use this so you don't have to spend your quarters!". It would be stupid, and it would be bad for the arcade's business.

However, if you get an arcade cabinet for yourself, you do have access to the key for the machine of course, and it makes the arcade game completely free to use. This comes with a cost, though. Have you even seen what prices arcade cabinets can go for? I'll just leave this here for you to have a look. (and when I said over $9000, I was not exaggerating.)

Yes, there are a fair few collectors out there who will try to buy every arcade cabinet in existence, and I fully respect the people who do so since they are awesome for being great collectors like that. However, to the regular customer, no one will see anything in buying a cabinet of Pac-Man for $2200 when they can get the same thing on their iPhone for only $5. Not many people will have the "wilingness and ability to pay", because who the heck would spend that much cash on the way Pac-Man is meant to be played when there are much cheaper alternatives that are just as good as the original in the first place?

Whenever you're in an arcade spending a quarter a minute because of constant game overs, or you're stupidly rich enough to afford a cabinet and the necessary equipment of your own (including the key to the cabinet), you're going to be spending money either way.
