    So retailers do make money when they sell the products, as I said.

    Not quite what you were saying, but even so that's only if there is any markup, which there isn't on high ticket electronics, not enough to truly consider an item profitable, anyhow.

    Question, since I don't really get this. Don't retail stores make some profit from MSRP and stuff, or does it all go back to the manufacturer? I've heard retail gets some money from selling the consoles, but this is the first time I heard that they don't

    It's very little, for the most part retailers are selling the product at close to cost. Cost being the price they pay for the item from the vendor. In terms of profit from an item, Nintendo would be the one making the most profit from the Wii U as it's bought by vendors to sell to retailers. Retailers aren't making much buying from a vendor to sell to a consumer.

    Miyamoto wants to release a Pikmin anime.

    But I'm more worried about that "I spent more time in the anime than the game" portion of the interview.

    You've got to remember that Miyamoto doesn't really do a whole lot any more.

    Also an interesting perspective from Games Radar: http://www.gamesradar.com/wii-u-game...t-virtual-boy/

    Basically, Nintendo doesn't much care how well their home consoles do as long as their handhelds are doing well. It's definitely true that they rule the portable space.

    Are you saying it because of how bad the Pokémon anime is, or because you just don't want them in the market?

    In Pokémon's case, that's Game Freak's incompetence in hiring bad writers.

    Unless Miyamoto uses the "No Plot" card like he did in Sticker Star...

    ... Nintendo and GameFreak have nothing to do with the Pokemon anime. They're just the rights holders to the franchise. They didn't do any hiring.

    I knew I had something wrong.

    So, let me rephrase it.

    It's whoever is in charge of the Pokémon anime that makes it so bad.

    Is this, like, a real thing that people think? As in, there are people who complain that a hugely effective 22-minute weekly commercial with expendable viewership doesn't meet their high standards?

    The worse that happened was that mother *******, sh**** anime that I shamefully say was supposed to represent F-Zero. It was terrible and then they made some less than stellar games of that stupid damn show that had the worst sh**** writing. 4kids did not ruin it. It was already ruined to begin with.

    Sounds like a plot to me.

    Hoenn has disappointed.

    P.S. I get tired of complaints from great games.

    No, just all the craziness Best Wishes has caused. There weren't as many big problems with it before.

    The one diamond in the rough, or rather, a load of garbage. I will say that was awesome. Here's the ultimate F-Zero challenge! Don't worry, you don't have to touch GX, just name me another awesome scene from the anime.

    Never watched it, but honestly, that one scene alone warrants its creation.

    I picked up Pikmin 3 today. So far all me and my siblings have been able to do is Bingo Battle! It is so much fun!

    I've been playing the story mode and it's pretty fun. I still haven't found the captain but the graphics are really awesome. The only complaints I have is the camera controls are a little bit more difficult than Pikmin 2 (other than the lock-on feature) and the Gamepad controls, but I can just use the Wii remote anyway so that doesn't matter

    I think he achieved exactly what he intended, if poorly worded. Read his post closely.

    So I finally got Pikmin 3, but now I need to do an update before I can play, then later it failed, then I got a pop up for Nintendo Network ID, I tried it, but it said I didn't enter my info right or something, I don't what to do for it. What's with all the unnecessary stuff just to play the game? Why can't the update just be on disk like the Wii games?
