As of March 8, Best Buy now has an online deal that if you buy a new Wii U console, you’ll receive a free $20 gift card that is shipped separately from the original order. Could this be a strategy by Best Buy to sell more Wii U systems? Anything is possible.
Joystiq says that Nintendo has found a cool way to make their environmentally-friendly package less irksome with Star Fox 64 3D. The only problem is, they did that with nintendogs + cats as well, but we didn’t see the benefit here.
Those who were among the early adopters can rest assured that Nintendo is ready and won’t let itself take a shellacking like Apple did when it dropped the original iPhone price, just a few months after its introduction.
Specifically, Capcom’s Mega Man Legends 3 for the Nintendo 3DS. There was supposed to be a downloadable “Prototype Version” available on the eve of the event, launched with Nintendo’s new Κατασκευή ιστοσελίδας με WordPress.

I always wanted to write a letter to Nintendo/Nintendo Power when I was a kid. Unfortunately, the actual act of putting pen(cil) to paper to write was something which I was never really big into. I did draft this one huge letter I thought would get in for sure, because it was bigger than anything (well, two pages, anyway), but never sent it. In hindsight, that was probably for the best, and for a number of reasons. So I usually just called their consumer service line instead and told those poor people what I needed to say (but not all at once).
That last part reminds me a bit of what little I know of Final Fantasy VIII. And I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it, one way or the other. But now I have a sudden urge to rewatch some Saved by the Bell episodes…
