Pretty sure the complainers want the device but are too cheap to see the value in it. So they have to complain about the device and others interested in it to talk themselves down from buying it themselves. It's a vicious circle for these poor conflicted folks.
I only really wanted it if it got hacked. 8mb of storage though... kind of a bit weak for having any kind of decent nes collection and it still being functional as a G&W. If I wanted to leave a portable device out with super mario bros on it... I could pop some batteries in my gbc, insert my copy of Super Mario Deluxe, and leave it on an end table or something so people could randomly play.
Nah, I admit I wanted one when I saw the video but my interest faded. This is not about being cheap. I just wish Nintendo had put more on it. As it is, it's just not worth it for me. Different strokes for different folks, of course.
I just enjoy poking the Nintendo fanboys. I like Nintendo, too (see the Nintendo boards), and have supported them since the NES days (yes, even the Wii and Wii U). But again, I'll call a spade a spade wheN I see it. I'm not favoring all these nostalgia gimmicks Nintendo has been doing. I'm sure some of this is just being sour about Nintendo's handling of Wii U, and that it never brought out a physical copy of Fatal Frame on Wii U over here.
