    1. And here in Sweden the stores don’t even know when they arrive…

      I hate this stupid country…

        1. I think you are assuming (probably incorrectly) that the majority of the consumer base wants exactly what you want. The problem with Nintendo offering the package deal you are currently thinking of is that it alienates a major of the consumer base.

          I am personally planning to download a digital copy of Pokemon X. I want a blue 3DS XL.
          What if I wanted a physical copy of Pokemon X and a blue 3DS XL?
          What if I wanted a digital copy of pokemon Y and a blue 3DS XL?
          What if I wanted a digital copy of pokemon X and a red 3DS XL?

          …and so forth. In fact, in order to cater to everyone, Nintendo would need to offer eight different SKUs instead of just two. A few of these SKUs would sell out more quickly and the consumer would be forced to settle for something they don’t really want. This way, a consumer can simply buy their preferred color of 3DS XL, and their preferred copy of Pokemon X or Y, according to their preference. In actuality, it is this mix-and-match approach which is the more convenient for most consumers.

          1. Yeah, that makes alot of sense then. I just thought it was somewhat weird, that’s all. Even so, i do think it would of been smarted to release these limited edition 3ds’s on the same day for people to pick up both at the shops, instead of 2 weeks beforehand. Then shops could do a type of deal to add the game to the deal or whatever, just to give players a game to play out of the box. It’s mainly just my opinion of course, and you do supply some very valid arguments. Thanks, Sam.
