    Do the same with the DS. But then there'd be hardly any DS games! [​IMG]

    i think their mini game collection meant DS-type games which are not actually really expressive
    it could be due to the recession hence they dont wanna put something ppl wont be buying and/or the space a game hogs on the shelf can be detrimental

    Of course they will still sell that, same with the ones that do sell. Sad case is that a lot sell over a million.

    They should stop with Popcorn arcade.

    Yaow! Come down! it's just an example of how those crapy games get to our own game shelves. Besides grandparents just want to give us something we like....a video game even if it's one that sucks bawls xD

    Thank goodness, that will at least phase out 30% of the shovelware from store shelves, now if they can phase out the horse and imagine style games.

    Depends on how well Mario Party sells as well. It is a Nintendo made game, doubt they would say no to Nintendo. I think it's more the crap that few people actually buy that the stores have to ask full price for despite the fact that they aren't worth it.
