    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

    Don't worry, instead they'll put the games on wiiware where no gullible grandparents will buy this shit for your birthday. [​IMG]

    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.

    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.
