Its not stupid. It's tactical. Yes, it sucks for a lot of the people who cannot afford it but the fact is, this will motivate a lot of people to just buy a DS and a pokemon game, or two, or three+. The game is still fun without a DS, I demo'd it today. But, in my opinion, it's not worth the money for the limited play. A part of me thinks it should have been marked down, at least to $39.99 because you need such add ons.Originally Posted by CaseyCor
Or hell, maybe even bundled with a DS and pokemon game for a slight discount on all three. That would have been a hit. But this technique Nintendo is using will still work.
This isn't the first time they've put out a game where you need a portable console to play it. You'd think that if it wasn't successful the first time, they wouldn't repeat the method.
