Nintendo of Europe have been awful since day one! Ever seen the Super Nintendo I have imported my Nintendo consoles for 60Hz goodness. Metroid Corruption only costs like £27 delivered from dvdboxoffice as well, a instant win!
I do think NOE could learn quite a lot from Microsoft's attitude to Europe. They've really impressed me with the 360.
If you are bashing Nintendo then don't use Sony as an example. Region free the PS3 may be but Sony will do everything in their power to stop you importing. Also what was the deal with the release date for the PS3? How many months after the US did we get it? The Wii was like 3 weeks delay!
They don't care about game imports, it was the console because it was so cheap abroad. They've just opened up there servers too, so that people like myself can play the U.S games (Like Warhawk which has a £40 saving when bought from the states. And Motorstorm, Resistence etc...) online in the U.K.
The wait for the console was because the EU machines had flaws that needed fixing. But even then, waiting for a machine isn't as bad as waiting for every single game released on it.
Plus, it may have have only been a 3 week wait for some, but they made so few consoles for such a high demand, people have been waitings months to get one (No idea why. Must be VC addicts as there's stuff all out for the damn thing).
I wish Ninty did still have the best games, but clearly they don't. They're ruining every game except Metroid, which they're now fixing (Better controls).
Ninty's NES, SNES and N64 are phenominal machines that can slaughter almost any other console in gameplay.
But the NGC was terrible. And ATM the Wii's only saving grace is the truly spectactular VC, which allow those amazing NES, SNES and N64 games to be downloaded.
If it weren't for the VC, I wouldn't have a Wii. But it's all opinions, s
