excuses, I have never seen fans make as many as Nintendo fans do. There are freaking 87 million users, I doubt most of them has that backlog, they have different taste, you can't just spend months ignoring the consoles. Adding insult, you have fans defending this shit.
Go tell that to the Japanese people who buying less than 8k right now, this is the console leader, you can't take breaks.
Where the heck are you getting that from? Last week was not 8k in hardware and ten times that in software... psrock I really don't know why you're taking such offense to a thread not negative and you have to insist everyone needs to be negative, we get it you like to make these statements cause you've got something to prove, other people have their own views, personally I own all the current consoles, there's a bit of a drought in games I want no matter the console, last game I REALLY wanted on home consoles was LBP2, and that was in Jan... it's been 3 months since then... does that mean I'm negative and whing about PS3? Am I whining about 360? Am I whining about Wii?
No I'm using this time to catch up on my gaming and play my portables... and using the money to flesh out my classic games collection.
Seriously different strokes for different folks, it's mighty funny the demographic wanting to whine about other consoles, just as you're suspect of "Nintendo fans" motives many would be suspect of your motives... just saying >_>
All I see is people trying to put a positive spin from a negative situation. Ok, Even I have games I haven' touched yet, but if Sony had done the same thing, I would be front and center telling you how they screwed up. Why is it so hard to say Nintendo fucked up, why the need to create copycat thread because you wanted some positivity, there's nothing positive about what Nintendo has done with the Wii in 2011 so far, nothing.
This is why the comunity has gone down lately, people think that disagreeing with their opinions is being negative, thus conversation stops.
Go to gaf and put a thread about how good it feels Nintendo basicly abondoned the Wii this year to focus on the 3ds and Pokemon because it allowed a few people to catch up, see how positive the responses will be.
It's denial, people are trying to cope, I see it on many threads, as PSP fan I went through this, there's nothing positive about this situaion.
Correct it is a postive part of a negative situation. I prefer glass half full you prefer glass half empty in tthis case I can easily still enjoy my half full glass. Plus, whats wrong with some half full glasses around. Boards tend not to have awhole lot of them. They are mostly negative threads full of petty dislike or simply trolling.
Theres already the other thread that is full of people of the discussion of Nintendo is so bad I feel screwed with this drought.
THeres a reason why i post here not other sites. IF i wanted nothing buts trolls and people full of rage I would go elsewhere.
Whats to deny? Noone here is disargreeing that nothing is really coming out. Just that it gives us time to finish and/or pick up games we wanted to try before but didnt have the time/money. THere is plenty of games I would like to play. That my friend is not denial that is a fact. I am far from the first person to use this kind of time to play catch up. Im not the first person to come out and say its nice to have a little bit of a draught. Ive seen in it in other threads before where people are waiting on a certain game for their next purchase and in the meantime playing a game they missed. I dont recall people claiming they are denying things which they are not.
Edit In order to cope you need to feel you are in a situation that requires coping. This is not one of them for some of us.
