  1. Didn’t Nintendo haters say Nintendo is doomed? Also anyone know how Pikmin 3 on its first full week? What’s taking so long to get that info. Before Wii U Harvey hitters hit that info sometimes came on Tuesdays. Now all of a sudden journalist isn’t releasing it as rapidlysince Wii U is doing good.


  2. *Angry, damaged, damage-controlling fanboys rush to their keyboards to hate*
    (‘This [Sobs] doesn’t mean AAAANYTHING!!!!!!’)
    (‘This can’t last b-because it goes against my LOOOOOOGICKCK!!!!!!!!’)


    • According to Nintendo haters the more graphics the better it sales. Yet aren’t Wii, Wii U and 3DS less powerful than their rivals? So why did Nintendo sell the most software?


      • Probably because they realise that once you beat a single player games on those systems, the replay value decreases significantly unlike many Nintendo games that have great replay value like Metroid Prime and Ocarina of Time…

        And many are probably getting bored with FPS games in general…


    • Why didn’t Sony come in top 5? Isn’t the PS3 most powerful in last generation? According to Nintendo haters, Sony should have sold over 6 million software since its games spits out the best visuals and has a ton of rehashed FPS according to Nintendo haters. So why didn’t you Sony Drones by ALlllllllllll those FPS games so that Xbox and Sony could breach 5.6 million software in sales? Why aren’t you drones buying y’all games to beat Nintendo?


      • 1)These are sales for Japan where FPS games don’t do that well.

        2)Sony’s first party titles don’t do as well sales wise except for a few key franchises.

        3)Other than the 3DS, the top software sales were on the PS3, Vita, and PSP. They just were mainly through third-parties.


  3. “Playing, and smiling… hears hater’s comotion, laughs… dusts off his sandals, shuts the door… Continues to play happily. Realizes there are other consoles… doesn’t give one single nut fuck”…
