Joystiq:

Quote
Wii U sales may be struggling but Nintendo's download business is booming. As part of its financial briefing today, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata revealed that the company's downloadable game sales surpassed ¥16 billion ($160.9 million), more than doubling sales of the previous year. Download sales also handily eclipsed the banner year of 2010, when "both the Wii and Nintendo DSi systems were actively used."

Iwata noted that the majority of Nintendo customers have taken their 3DS online. That includes 87 percent of users in Japan and 83 percent in America. Europe's connection rate is significantly lower at 57 percent. The Wii U, meanwhile, has an 80 percent connection rate worldwide.

Iwata also mentioned the surprising viewing habits for the company's Nintendo Direct presentations. For recent presentations, he said, "it became common to see total views for a single video reach five hundred to six hundred thousand in a matter of about 10 days on the Nintendo eShop while they did not show apparent growth on YouTube." In fact, it seems that the eShop is now the most popular source for Nintendo Direct, accounting for "approximately 60 to 70 percent" of total views. That might sound like a surprising statistic, especially given the immense presence of YouTube, but Iwata noted that the eShop appeals to viewers "who do not own their own PCs or smart devices."

Just noticed Kirby's Adventure is $.30 on Wii U VC.  Don't mind if I do.

lol - that is the tv remote... if you just want to play the VC game on your tablet, just boot up the Wii U via the tablet and launch it. Leave your TV on the other source (cable, etc).

For some reason my brain was telling me if I change the channel, the controller screen will turn off.

Decent amount of Nintendo news this morning, nothing earth shattering but some things of note:
- During E3 week some future Wii U games will be playable at select Best Buy stores in the U.S. and Canada. So in theory it's what people get to play at E3, but nationwide.
- Super Luigi U drops August 25th. In addition to being a digital expansion to Mario U for $19.99, a stand alone disc version will be available for $29.99. Nabbit will be a playable character in multi-player mode.
- Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons hit the 3DS VC on May 30th. $5.99 each, $4.99 for a limited time when they come out.
- The next three Sonic games are Nintendo Exclusive and the first one is called Sonic: The Lost World and will be on Wii U and 3DS.
- Game Gear games coming to the 3DS VC -
  - Columns
  - Crystal Warrior
  - Defenders of Oasis
  - Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine
  - G-LOC: Air Battles
  - Shining Force II: The Sword of Hajya
  - Sonic Blast
  - Sonic Drift 2
  - Sonic Labyrinth
  - Sonic the Hedgehog
  - Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  - Tails Adventures
  - Vampire: Master of Darkness

Apparently, despite a (from what I understand not that great) Sonic franchise existing for years on the Wii now, these Wii U games were big news on Yahoo!, who states "90s game star gets a surprising new home".

On the other hand, those people didn't drop $300-$350 on a Wii U, so they're still way ahead.

Super Metroid actually looks really pretty on a 1080p HDTV with an HDMI cord. You wouldn't think it would make a big difference, but it does.

You'd be surprised at the people who will snatch that up. The OoT guide is apparently exclusive to the set, so by default,  "collector's" will pounce on it.

So after register Shin Megami Tensei IV at club nintendo a thing popped up telling me they had a promotion on where if you register that and Fire Emblem by August 31st you get $30 in e-shop credit, and oh ho ho I registered Fire Emblem long ago. Hooray "free" credit. I plunked $10 of it down on Earthbound, and was going to use the rest of Super Luigi U, but I think I'm going to hold off on that and wait for Ducktales next week. TO THE MOON MOTHERFUCKERS.

A few places in Canada have been clearing out the Basic models of the Wii U. Walmart has it in this week's flyer for $199, and I guess some places like Best Buy and Future Shop may be matching that. That didn't really tempt me at all. Then I saw that the things might ring up for $150 at Target. I didn't exactly run out the door at that offer either, but I stopped at a location yesterday, and they had a few. So I have a Wii U. Still in the box, and it may well stay there, but I have one.

I still have no idea what I would even play on the thing. I have a moderate interest in Donkey Kong Country Returns, but that's a few months off, and it's only one game. I doubt Cat Mario will be enough to get me to buy that game. Something like Watch_Dogs has the potential for something interesting to be done with the tablet. But I also feel like the Wii U version will be the least important of 6 or 7 versions of the game to Ubisoft. Nothing else I'm aware of makes me feel like I need to keep the system.

The 2DS looks amateurish. No way around saying this. It looks like something I'd buy second hand rather than a Nintendo product.

And oh look, a U price drop. Not surprised that it happened, but more surprised that only was a month in advance of the new consoles. Was thinking it would be earlier. Though considering it would be the same price as the PS4, that might be why they waited till just now.
