    Understandable, just saying when a store gets 2 consoles a month after a launch of like 5-7 a store it seems weird. I ran the electronics department and we got an alert saying it wasn't an error, Nintendo chose to do that to the retail stores.

    Gotta come in with the edit to mention I love me some Mario kart, when I visit my sister we play non stop. That game never gets old.

    It's crazy how well the PS4 is doing. Then you have the switch that came out of nowhere and is doing amazingly well. I'm really wondering what Xbox is going to do. There chances of making PUBG exclusive I think is pretty much impossible considering PS4 has nearly double the install base.

    I was really hoping to see Xbox make some big changes and really invest in gaming after the horrible gen they had compared to 360 but they just don't seem interested in doing that. Well they had the xbox X or whatever it's called but that doesn't seem to have done anything for them. God help them if they cancel anymore exclusive games due in 2018.

    They publish the game, so it's up to them, but yeah, they'll definitely eat profit if they resist a timed release to other platforms. Then again, I'm not sure what share of microtransaction profits they take, so they might not care as much about the health of the install base versus a long-term strategy to bolster their platform base itself.

    Bought my 7 year old son a SNES mini for Christmas - absolutely entranced by Earthbound.

    It always has, and always will be, about the gameplay - Nintendo gets that.

    I started it on the 3ds but never finished it. My brother has just about every piece of earthbound memorabilia there is. Maybe I'll fire it up tonight

    I've only ever seen 1 in person at a game store for $250 hopefully Nintendo makes more this time so people can actually buy one.
