When I read 'Red and Blue Pokemon' my heart skipped a beat. I thought we were getting Pokemon Red and Blue 3DS classics.

Red and blue 3DS bundles, as in the two colors we already have, correct? Can't wait to get my black 3DS XL! ^_^

@Mako
Extremely odd because both Red and Blie 3DS are no longer being made and out of production. Hmm.

Red and blue 3DS XL Pokemon bundles? Sick. That's a really great idea, Nintendo. Heaven knows those are the two colors we've all been wanting and waiting for. To the person(s) behind these marketing choices, my hat is off to you. Nintendo JP should take notes from you. Who needs unique and original color choices anyways? What a waste of time and energy it would be to give thought to something as trivial as aesthetics. Besides, everyone knows red and blue are the new black. I think I'm going to have to pick up both bundles just because it's so hard to choose between the two.

@Autosaver
Exactly, although he might be referring to the red/ blue 3DS XL's?

@Summer
He never says they are XL colors though. If they are, they might just be red/black and blue/black. The ones we already have.

That's exactly what I'm expecting. They'll probably be the same colors, and if we're lucky, they might have some super basic artwork on the front. I'm hoping they are some kind of different shade of red and blue, but honestly, this is Nintendo - a company that believes that unique color options and designs should be limited to Japan. I'm really quite surprised the Animal Crossing 3DS even made it over to the West, while a Mario Bros. themed 3DS has not (and probably will not) show up over here despite it being a much more popular franchise. I'm really disappointed that we will never get that Luigi-themed 3DS.

Oh well, I guess. Black it is.

If the Wind Waker bundle turns out to be a Limited Edition Wii U I may jizz in my pants.

I already have the Zelda 3DS for collection purposes.

@OmnipotentSwine The main series Pokemon games will never be released on the VC services.

I hope WW HD is just one of many Wii U bundles Nintendo offer this year - they're hot stuff!

What's not common knowledge about ps3 is that you need double the file size in order to actually download what you desire. That bundle is nice but useless if you aren't automatically swapping the inner hdd (which is rather easy).

I suspect more bundles for wii u though, the games released this year lend themselves to it. (which sounds kind of awkward)

If you put in a HDD to any PS3 with internal memory, the internal memory becomes unusable sine the PS3 can't use 2 sources of memory at once.

12GB PS3? Why? Just make the 320GB models $200. No need for a gimped model with only 12GB of flash storage.

A wind waker bundle? Why? Surely Pikmin 3 is a much bigger deal than that HD re-release?

That has to be a typo and he meant 120 gb, right?

The file sizes of tens of dozens of games, not to mention the install size of even disc based games exceed 12 gb individually.

Why not? Has this been confirmed?


It's just a bit of common sense.

You wouldn't be able to trade between the pair [or more] like you could when they were released - Local Trade & Multiplayer is still the core focus of the series [even if the West is more towards both Online].

Plus, it eternally leaves the door open for future possible remakes of gens.

@BlueRangerVegeta

Zelda is a bigger and far more popular franchise than Pikman is re-release or not. The sales of Pikman have never outsold a Zelda game. Bundling a Wii U with the fist ever HD Zelda game, even if it is a re-release with a fresh coat of paint, is a smart move.
