I read through the article and while he makes a good point. Im glad it came out of the ds. Maybe Nintendo choose not to put it on the 3DS because it was afraid it lose money from game sales. I think it was smarter going with ds over the 3ds because theres no way to be sure people will even buy a 3ds to play the game.

From a financial point of view, it could be either a positive or a negative thing.

For one, it's pretty much guaranteed to get more sales as a Normal DS game, because that means that around five consoles could play it, instead of just 3DS.

However, there would be some fans that would go out and buy a 3DS specifically to play this game.


I just hope that the graphics on 3DS aren't as blocky as they were for the original Black and White games.

I think Nintendo were smart to release it for DS. Sure, they would get the die-hard Pokemon fans to buy a 3DS to play the games, but plenty of more casual gamers wouldn't bother or couldn't afford it, I'm sure. Especially because the average age of a Pokemon fan is probably too young to have their own job and therefore they would have to rely on their parents buying it. They know most people interested in a new Pokemon game would have a DS already. I think they will definitely make more money this way.

I'm also glad Pokemon is still relatively 2D. Sprites just don't look right in 3D...
