    Nintendo needs to start doing more on all of their systems. Bring back demos, start seasonal sales, better offers and make the pricing right.

    Way back when the Wii was announced they talked about releasing old games with added features but that never happened. They talked about giving some VC games away to help sell a new game in the franchise, and that never happened. In the meantime PSN & XBLA offer some old games in both their original forms AND in updated forms for the same price, Nintendo would have better sales if they offered the same.

    It does sound like the 3DS is going to fix what was wrong but they need to do this on all of the systems.

    Also has DSiWare has actually been confirmed to be sold on it? All that I've seen is that existing DSi owners can transfer software over.

    Where intellect matters
    It's easy to tell now that the DSi was just a test to see consumer's reaction.

    With the DSi they were somewhat quiet about GBA virtual console, etc. and now Nintendo is going all out with the 3DS (and it of course has cameras like the DSi as-well)

    NO.

    Well, probably not. I doubt they'll add much to the DSi, considering they want everyone to buy the outrageously expensive 3DS.

    I'm very interested in the remakes featuring 3D.
    And I hope 3DSware is true, as I can't wait to see what quirky games ordinary people can come up with.

    Nintendo is repeating the same mistakes over and over again there truly don't want to support their costumers.
