So has anyone seen the new Mario/Luigi bundle out in the wild? The press release said November 1 but I haven't seen it yet.
Javery - I saw them on Sunday in Best Buy while picking up a purple 3DS for the wife from their 2 day sale. There was no special end cap or marketing, they were just piled in among the remaining Wind Waker systems.
Also, breaking news, Blaster Man owns Apple stock.
Yeah, Blasterman, I have to say you are reaching there.
First of all, is that a translation of an original Japanese quote? There could be some subtlety there that we are missing. Maybe if an American company said that (as a direct quote) it might have some hidden corporate-speak meaning. But I think with the different language, culture, and the fact that this is stubborn old Nintendo, that is the last interpretation I would have.
It could mean any number of things will be considered:
1) A further price cut 2) Different bundles (other/more games or as Sp00ge suggested different colors) 3) Moving up some big game release dates (which I hope not - don't want Smash or even Kart rushed out) 4) Or simply adjusting expectations that the console will limp along without ever making a ton of money (but still being profitable in the long run).
The last things I would think would happen are discontinuing the system or even producing a Gamepad-less version. As others have said, maybe it means they get to work on the next system just a little earlier and have it ready 5 years after the Wii U launched instead of 6 or 7.

Seems i will go with the Rocketfish one. I will try out the Zagg shield that my bestbuy carries and have them apply it since i suck at them.
The rocketfish case won't fit with any kind of skin on it. I installed a Skinomi skin on the front of my gamepad and it won't close at all.
One thing I learned with these shells, make sure you take your gamepad out every now and then and wipe it down, if anything gets in there it'll scratch the hell out of the surface.
On a different note, I found some news for anyone who's upgrading to the Zelda bundle. It is possible to transfer content from one system to another if you have both of them. You can either send both systems in to Nintendo, with them paying the shipping, and have your system data and game saves transferred over, or you can give them the serial numbers of the source and target systems and your user name and they'll transfer the licenses and credit to your new one for you. You will lose your game saves though. I had this done today, they told me it would take 2-5 days to do it, but I received an email from them within an hour telling me to set up my account on the new system. My credit was in the e-shop on the new system and all of my downloads were in my history to download again.
