@DarkGamer007: Remember how people got pumped up about a secret announcement by Nintendo at e3? Wii Fit Trainer has to be the biggest troll job Sakurai has done, the butthurt on the internet and the broadcasters is beautiful.
Wii Fii Trainer is awesome, though. This is not. It's like E3 all over again when Nintendo hyped up Retro's new game announcement and that game turned out to be Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze.

C'mon Nintendo, you could have at least teased Zelda or something interesting. Revealing a playable character to a game that was already supposed to be released does not warrant your first VGA Appearance.
Didn't they say that Zelda was reserved for E3? Didn't they also clearly state that it was already going to be about a game that was already coming out for the VGX?
They did not say that Zelda was reserved for E3, and there was news stated by the damn host of the VGA's that the reveal was a "World Premiere", which typical implies that it is something new entirely. Really, people wanted to see something exciting, like a new Star Fox or F-Zero, a new IP, Zelda, or Metroid. Instead we got freaking Donkey Kong. That is two times within in the same year that Nintendo has trolled people with Retro.
My Nintendo collection since some of you think I'm a hater.
Nobody here thinks you are a hater, we just don't understand the logic of why Nintendo should develop video games for IOS because the install base is larger, despite the 3DS selling millions, and yet other video game hardware manufacturers like Sony and Microsoft should not.

EDIT: Why just restrict this to Nintendo? The same arguments apply to Sony and Microsoft too. Everybody should develop exclusively for iOS! #ThankYouBasedApple
Different audiences. Sony doesn't have any issues selling PS4 hardware. Hardcore gamers won't switch to IOS devices to play games.
Nintendo doesn't have any problems shifting 3DS hardware. What now?
Sure, the 3DS is selling, but guess what. There are 500 million ios devices out in the wild right now. Nintendo would be way more successful simply being a software developer on IOS. Unfortunately, their pride is getting in the way of that. Again, nobody wants the Wii U. All those people who bought a 3DS would be more than happy to play those same games on an IOS device.

I wonder why Nintendo settled on the VGX for this supposed "big reveal." I mean, there always seems to be a lot of animosity towards the VGAs amongst gamers.
Figured they would've went with Nintendo direct, since they usually use that to substitute for the more mainstream public appearances and reveals.
The fact that Nintendo is appearing at the VGA's likely means a) they are announcing a game that will appeal heavily to the West, b) will appeal more to gaming enthusiasts, and c) it's probably something awesome.
I'm guessing Zelda, Metroid, or Miyamoto's new IP. Honorable mention: Star Fox.
I think it really depends on a few points I believe:
1) Is this the first time the game was re-released on a platform?
2) Is the original release of the game rare, or incredibly expensive, or exclusive to one region?
3) Does it offer significantly improved graphics or features compared its original release?
I would consider Earthbound "exclusive" to the Wii-U as the e-Shop release was the first time the game was released in Europe, the North American, and Japanese cartridges cost rought $200, and $100 used respectively, and Earthbound's only other release was for the GameBoy Advance in the form of Mother 1 + 2, but that was exclusive to Japan.
I would not consider The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D exclusive to the 3DS because despite the improved graphics and features, the game is not rare, was released for the Nintendo 64, Nintendo GameCube, and Virtual Console, and is essentially playable one way or another on the Nintendo 64, GameCube, Wii, and Wii-U, in all regions.
I'm still iffy on The Legend of Zelda: Winder Waker HD,as the game is not rare, but was only every released on the GameCube before being released on the Wii-U, features significantly better graphics, new features, fixed the gameplay issues with the original version, and a used, disc only, copy of the GameCube version will run you $40, just $10 less than a new Wii-U copy.

Definitely the name. Nintendo has a bad habit of naming things in a confusing manner.
For example, I remember when the 3DS first came out. For the longest time I thought it was just a DS with 3D capabilities slapped onto it. I never realized it was a complete upgrade hardware wise.
They even have commercials addressing the name confusion issue. lol
Haha, I always thought a Gameboy Color was just a gameboy that had color.
The ironic part of your post is that the GameBoy Colour WAS just a GameBoy with color. Both devices had the same hardware outside of whatever made the Colour in color. In fact some games like Link's Awakening DX could be played on either a GameBoy or a GameBoy Color.
I think after this generation Nintendo is going to attempt to merge their home consoles and portable devices into one single unit. Think the Wii-U controller but as it's own standalone device, with the functionality of gaming oriented tablet.
Also similar to this:
A device that would have removable controls so it could function like a normal tablet for multimedia purposes such as watching Netflix or reading e-Books, and then connected to a controller for gaming at home or on the go.
I really hope you aren't older than 12 years old AtariKidX, if you are then you seem to have an unhealthy hatred of Nintendo. Every time you mention Nintendo, it's as if you have to say something negative and want them to fail because you feel insecure in your maturity and want everyone to know that you are "too mature for Nintendo". There isn't liking something, and then there is unhealthy passionately hating on something.

kids casuals they don't care for the Nintendo games anymore.......they want PS3 and XBOX360 because they are better and cheaper than the Wii eww.
This, kids today can grow up playing games like Killzone, Halo, GTA, Battlefield, CoD.
Sheep really think todays kid give a f*ck about Mario?
Mario to kids today is a saturday cartoon line up kinda joke.
Things are different now and unless Nintendo learns to adapt they aren't going to be around much longer.
True.........kids today they love games like Battlefield, CoD,Killzone, Halo,Gears of war,God of War and many others.
The only ones who buy those Nintendo games today are girls gamers who love those poor and silly nintendo games.
Nintendo is desperately trying to reach out to the audience that may care about them, little girls and pedos (srs)
Literally all the people I know who bought a Wii all say fuck WIi U and want a PS4 or X1.
The problem with the religious exclusion, is that it only cares for the leaders of certain companies and NOT the employees. Is a CEO of a company saying that birth control is immoral, and not providing it to his employees a breach of his employee's religious freedom because they may be against it? They are only required to cover birth control, but they are not forced to use it, nor are their employees.

Good now maybe Nintendo will start creating new IPs and learn that nothing lasts forever. It will be a good lesson for nostalgic sheep.
Tell that to the legions of James Bond fans after twenty something movies. I'm sorry, but if film franchises like Bond can last long, why can't game franchises?
Oh and I'm tired of the "sheep being nostalgic for supporting their favorite franchise" argument, as that thread pointed out, it is filled with irony at it's finest.
"LOL stupid sheep and their blind nostalgia, only playing the same franchises over again!" "OMG SONY USED THE SAME START-UP SOUND FOR THE PLAYSTATION 4, THAT THEY DID FOR PLAYSTATION 1! I CANNOT WAIT FOR Uncharted 4, Metal Gear Solid V and the next Final Fantasy!"
Yay, I love spending hundreds of dollars more frequently. Thanks Sony /sarcasm.
The longer the gen, the better.
I'm much for longer generations, and at this point we need them. People are less willing to spend $400+ on a new console every five years now that people purchase smartphones and tablets more regularly and have other sources to play video games, at least for the casual market. For developers, longer generations help slow down astronomic development costs that are approaching unstable levels as they can re-use the engines they spent developing more, thus saving them money and making their investments into no engines more worthwhile. From a technical standpoint, we are to the point where we are going to start hitting the law of diminishing returns, hard. Shorter generations means those diminishing returns will only being more noticeable and people, even the enthusiasts will be less likely to upgrade. Personally I think eight years is a perfect lifespan.
Buy an original Genesis. The nice thing about most Sega consoles is that they are fairly cheap compared to their Nintendo counterparts. A Genesis can be had for $25, and most games are $3-$10 with a few between $20-$30. Comparatively a Super Nintendo will run you typically $40-$60 and most games are in the $20-$40 range. Be sure to pick up a 6-Button controller for the Genesis, you won't be able to enjoy fighting games without them.
