I actually want the games to tank, but there's no chance of that happening. I sincerely hope this happens, the design philosophy behind the games needs to change. The developer needs to change too, but that's a whole different story.
I can see them losing a lot of sales because of dexit, but equally, there are people who eat up anything with Pokemon written on it blindly, and heaps of casuals who will jump on the first console Pokemon game.
We live in the world of 'only sold 7 million copies', so frankly I am fairly sure that a million or so lost sales would be a noticeable problem, especially as I am sure that everyone in Nintendo/Creatures/Game Freak knows about the fan backlash.
The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?
