Keep up the good work nintendo.


Thats true nearly all of the older members of my extended family have one! But with only one or two games being Dr Kawashima or Big Brain Academy.

Smilie thata is amazing 5 Million people and over 200 million games played Smilie WOW i bet Nintey never expected this about online play! Smilie

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

Its good to hear that all of this expanding the market stuff is working. The DS seems to be gaining popularity among adults. I've seen many people(young and old) in the public playing their DS. Smilie

Hopefully these figures drive home the message that Nintendo need to focus more around online.

If only they improved the online, than I would actually use it more often. So much more room for improvement, hopefully they don't get blinded by their success and still strive to make a better online system.

Smilie well i just got my Wi-Fi back working ^^ just intime for some wii online fun XD

Which for me makes all the more sense to amek Metroid Prime 3 on the Wii online.

Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clich. They were the statement and the definition."
