Nintendo Admits 3DS "Didn't Launch With Enough Strong Games", Gamers Reply "Duh"
Nintendo released a press statement earlier today, explaining the reason for the middling success of their portable system, the 3DS. "There simply weren't enough quality games when we launched it. But we had to launch something at the time so people would still believe we had something to offer."
Tetsuo Miller, CEO of Nintendo, further elaborated by saying "the gimmick of 3D games has already become passe, much like 3D movies should."
Gamers worldwide are not surprised by the statement. "In one word, 'duh'!" commented gamer WiiBash. "Maybe they will learn from their mistakes with the next hand-held. But I'm not betting money on it." Some gamers, however, admit their shock at the statement. GulliBull32 exclaimed, "3D movies are passe??"
In an effort to bolster sales for the 3DS, Nintendo will be offering vouchers with every new 3DS sold for the upcoming Nintendo Wii U, giving gamers the opportunity to try out the new system before it becomes obsolete a couple of months after its release...
