soundwave05 said:I think another problem with the GBA SP in Japan is Nintendo hasn't dropped the GBA SP price in Japan.
Unlike in North America where the $79.99 US price point has caused GBA sales to remain static even with the DS, the GBA SP in Japan is still 9800 yen.
Miburou said:Actually, the price of the GBA SP was dropped to 9,800 Yen around the time of the DS's release. It was higher before that.
soundwave05 said:Yeah. 9800 yen is still overpriced, that's like $93 US for a GBA SP versus the $79.99 US Nintendo sells them for in North America. You can get a PSP in Japan for about $188 US.
That's not even a $100 difference between the GBA SP and the PSP, its ridiculous really.
Ditto for the GameCube which is also overpriced in Japan.
This would make a nice point if Colosseum wasn't so damn halfassed. The only benefit for owning the game was getting G/S pokemon into Ru/Sa/FR/LG, but even then you couldn't trade until you spent time in that horrible, horrible, "story" mode. Then there's the fact that you couldn't have a very customizable team seeing as the only pokemon you could catch were Shadow Pokemon and they weren't all that varied, most of the focus is on legendaries or pokemon rather tough to get alone. Oh and the huge focus on trainer battles, the lack of wild pokemon means the lack of an easy way to train and even harder means of advanced training (EVs and such). And then there's no breeding center that I can remember, so you can't quite breed pokemon for IVs either. Hell it didn't even have a freaking contest mode. Oh and the graphics weren't much either for what you'd expect from a GC game, it really felt to me like not a much higher step up from the Stadium games.Tabris said:It was said before though.
"A pokemon RPG for gamecube? Nintendo is going to sell millions!!"
I like how you keep repeating yourself in many threads.
he level-headed people are just glad both are selling well enough that neither company is going to abondon the hardware they just bought (as level-headed people will buy both as they are fair and objective ;P )
"Apart of individual tastes among one or other, there is a feeling that PSP is destroying portable business of Nintendo and that is not true at all. The not nomal thing is that Nintendo would have kept such numbers with a competitor as PSP.
I see it as an invitation to wait and see how evolute the software of each system."
