A theory to discuss

#1sjakosPosted 8/31/2011 4:24:43 PM
If nintendo would've let people download 20 free games from the start, the 3ds would've sold better, and there wouldn't have been a price drop.

My opinion?

I think it would have been possible.
I know I would've been more tempted to buy one(bought it a month ago).

That would mean Nintendo could predict the future, which we all know has never happened.

Yes, a hell of alot more people would have been running to the stores to get a $250 3DS for 10 NES games & 10 GBA games.

Oh and Combat of Giants: Dinosaurs 3D, Nintendogs, and whatever other shovel-ware people were fighting over at stores to get their hands on.

How about a serious theory then? You really think that the old games would have been a major driving force behind more sales?

Only Pokemon or Mario would have made the kiddies beg for a 3DS like crazy. Hell I would have bought myself one at launch for those two, not some NES games that have been released multiple times already.

20 retro games you can play on an emulator are not a reason to buy a gaming device. It wouldn't have sold too much better at all. The 3DS only really needed some killer games. It currently has very few of those.

Most nintendo bashers ARE sony fanboys, actually. The inability to acknowledge quality exposes them.

Don't talk any sense or else he'll suspect you're a Sony fanboy.
