Irrelevant. Even if the games sold poorly, at the very least they would gain some money. And I am pretty sure that a series with a staying power of 20 years is not going to die even if a third game doesn't sell well. And whose to say it definitively would not have sold well?
Honestly, all I see now with gen 6 is missed opportunities. I feel Nintendo is being foolish in releasing Gen 7 this early. If it is all the same with you guys, that's the last I am going to say about Pokemon here...unless you want to talk about it in the PMs. Pokemon is a tad off topic here.
You guys really think I care that much about Nintendo... Truth be told, I wouldn't be heartbroken if they lost some money. I wouldn't even be heartbroken if they went out of business. Nintendo are not exactly saints if you know what I mean. And it's safe to say they have rubbed me the wrong way...Sad but true.
Fair enough, but at the same time: the Wii U still only lasted for 5 years.
You know what? All this crap is actually making me like Nintendo less and less each day. First they come out with the gimmicky Wii, then they botch up the advertising for the Wii U, and now they are trying to answer that issue with a console that is rumored to be digital only.
