1. FRIEND CODE IS FOR PEOPLE WITH FRIENDS!!! IF YOU DO NOT HAVE FRIENDS YOU CAN STILL VISIT NORMAL BIG ONLINE COMBAT ROOMS!!
3. artical has some points, but people are forgetting that even though they might not like it. The DS is still a very nessesary product for nintendo, they are commin out with a lot for the DS right now. Wii and DS are both being made, nintendo hits are in the making, full factories of wiis and some of DS. nintendo needs some time, gamers gave the 360 a year and look at how far its gotten. I think the biggest company in the world microsoft could do somewhat better dont you think?
4. And nintendo arn't crooks, they don't want to crap out sequals with no point. A good example is FF series. Every since 7 most of them have bin crap comming out a 3 months after the predecors. Another one is halo 3 games and look at how much its "progressed?"
