First, I am an Xbox hater, not a Nintendo hater. I have owned a Super Nintendo, Gamecube, Gameboy Advance, old Model DS, and even a Wii for a short time. I just see these things as wrong.
Nintendo has no plans to include an ac adapter for their new 3DS. Nintendo's pathetic excuse is that people with a current 3DS or DSI will already have an adapter. Two problems with that. 1: Many will want to trade in their old 3DS toward the new one, and that will include the adapter. Therefore, you will have to buy another adapter. 2: SOME OF US, LIKE MYSELF, HAVE NEVER OWNED A 3DS OR DSI! I have no power cord lying around. So we are expected to buy a useless system with no way to charge it and buy a separate adapter?! Ridiculous. Greedy! Many parents that don't read these sites will have a crying child when he/she tries to play the system and can't. I was interested in a New 3DS for Xenoblade, but I may just skip it now. It's not the cost, but the principle. Other parts of the world have been getting screwed like this already, but now it is coming to the US. The other parts of the world should not have accepted this, and now the US--probably their biggest market--must speak against this.
Also, though not a Mario fan, I have read that Nintendo will make no more mainline Mario games for Wii U. That is wrong. They put out a 2D Mario game, but where is Super Mario Galaxy 3 or Super Mario Universe? A proper 3D sequel is what Wii U owners deserve. Mario 3D world does not count. Does this not anger Wii U owners?
