    Because Amazon advertising the flip side of the current handheld generation coin is something Nintendo should pout about?

    Welcome to the wonderful world of advertising, where you advertise one thing to an audience that would probably want to buy it.

    Oh please, this is crap. I can browse Newegg and look up ASUS motherboards and get recommended an EVGA GPU, doesn't mean anything.

    3DS is 200$. Vita is... about 250? (on a funny side note, if you buy one now you get an epic three cent discount) Amazon wants to make money, so they want you to spend it. People who bought/are considering buying one console might be interested in another. Makes sense?

    It's their automatic advertising crap, man. It's not on purpose, it's based on viewing and buying trends.

    Can someone explain why NeoSupaMario is unbanned if he's still making shit threads?

    Not sure why you brought his name up, since he didn't make this topic. :|
    And I'd imagine he isn't banned because he hasn't broken enough rules to warrant a ban.
    Besides, do you want another member to gain publicity after the inevitable unbanning?
    Ah, wait. EOF. Not sure if serious.

    I like NeoSupaMario. That's because he's easy to take the piss out of.

    It's called a last resort, they're trying to show you the right path. As in "You're browsing the 3DS page... you COULD be browsing the PSVita's page... but we're not going to push you there, we're just presenting you with an option...".
