Not my words.
But, from the professional writers of this site.

I'm not sure what to make of it. But, I wouldn't be surprised.

The Nintendo DS only got a price drop after Nintendo released the DS Lite over a year and a half later.

Factually incorrect.

I think.

If I were stuck on an island with Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Modern Warfare 2, I would play Super Mario Galaxy 2 first. People who agree: 222

History says Nintendo handhelds always do ridiculously well, last time I checked :\

Maybe doomed has a new meaning.

Doom is far different from mediocrity, which the GCN and N64 achieved. And I would love for the 3DS to fail, but I don't see "doom" like the Virtua Boy.

Troll?

History says Mario Kart and platforming Mario do well over the holidays.

I don't think we've seen both in the same holiday season ever though

I recall the price being cut to $129 just 9 months after launch. Even then, I don't think the system sold all that well, until Mario Kart DS and NSMB were released.

That's what I thought too. I thought the DS launched at $170 and then got a $40 price cut.

It's kinda hard to find stuff like that now though, and it's been a while, lol. But yeah, DS was launched in 2004. I didn't even really hear about it until 2006, after NSMBDS.
