The Nintendo Direct News And Discussion Thread

Video games cost WAY more in Australia than they do in most other areas. They have to pay something like $100 for games that would cost $60 in the States and other Western countries. It's ridiculous.

Exactly true :(
Funny how our dollar is worth just as much (and lately often worth more) as the US Dollar and we are closer to where the games are manufactured so shipping costs isn't an issue. I honestly don't get it. It's not just games, all electronics pretty much.
3DS: $250
Wii U Black: $430
Wii U White: $350
3DS AAA Title: $70
Wii U AAA Title: $80 (Wii was $100)
iPhone 5: (16GB $800)(32GB $900)(64GB $1000)
EB Games PS4 Preorder (estimated) Price: $800 (seriously, not joking)

We didn't get any Oracle pricing in our Direct, so I wonder what that will be.
Also, there still isn't much Wii U stuff to be excited about.

Looking forward. Though it starts at midnight and I have a three hour exam as well as my schools formal the next day, I wouldn't miss it for the world.

I have to get up early for school camp the next day, talk about convenient timing :P Should be a great day for you (- the exam).
Hopefully we get more than just a teaser trailer for it.

I wonder which Smash Brothers veteran will be announced this time. Sakurai has acted funky tonight.

Before Luigi was confirmed, the pic of the day was a hilariously boring image of Oilmar and Kirby standing idle. Tonight, we have a hilariously boring image of Olimar and the Wii Fit Trainer. Additionally, on the pic of the day before Luigi's confirmation, the miiverse post was almost two hours behind the standard. Tonight, it's taken Sakurai no less than five hours than usual. Calling it, these Nintendo Directs are affecting Sakurai's behaviour...
