Man I just don't get it. Nintendo only has a handful of games I want to play.

The picture is hilarious btw.

SUCK IT SONY AND MICROSOFT FANBOYS! On a more serious note, this isn't surprising.

Excellent header image choice.

BlackScythe Do keep in mind that this is Japan's market we're taking about here. There are games like Pokemon, Dragon Quest and the plethora of games that refuse to be localized that keep Nintendo exceedingly competent... In Japan, at least.

Wow, not that surprised but still thats quite something. Kind feel sorry for Sony though I wonder just how well they would do if it wasn't for Monster Hunter?

Meanwhile, Japan also censors 90% of their material, and is still recovering from the tsunami. AND, it's a lot easier to buy nintendo games when they're almost the only option you have.

Not sure what censorship has to do with anything (or where you got that 90% figure from), but there are plenty of developers in Japan besides Nintendo.

This confuses me, outside of genitals in porn Japan is far less likely to censor things than the US is.

still pretty damn frustrating if you ask me though. on bad days it feels like a 100% sometimes.

Nintendo will always be special to me, but it has just lost its novelty over the years, putting gimmicks over graphics and having mediocre 3rd party games. It's excellent for 1st party games and that's about it, they just put too much focus into gimmicky consoles and handhelds nowadays and are out of touch with the times.
