Boy that's a huge file. A friend of mine handed down his Steelbook so I figure I can play that. I bought several games in the first Throwback week, but nothing the last two.

I imagine in the end it will have been profitable and a minor success for Nintendo. I hope we see more; it'd be a great candidate for $10 expansion DLC via the "books".
It's never going to command the shelf space of market giants, but it still has a space at most retailers in the midwest, as far as I can tell.
Based on articles I've read, it seems the UK is colder on the WiiU than many other markets, so limited shelf space in the UK is unsurprising.
Dedicated scalpers will find ways around this, but it's nice to see retailers taking steps to help regular people buy their stuff.
It'd be even nicer if Nintendo just flooded the market with them, but they're not about to do that. Scarcity, either legitimate or artificial, is good for business.
Do you already have a 3DS XL? Not worth the upgrade
Have a regular 3DS/2DS or don't have one at all? Worth it
This right here. Unless you're dying to play Xenoblade Chronicles, the system doesn't have too many reasons to upgrade beyond Amiibo functionality and some faster load times (and a few games with camera control). If you don't have a 3DS this is the one to get, but otherwise it's worth waiting for a future price drop or bundle at the very least.

Ryan has been part of the group of critics I have followed and enjoyed since I finally got my own job and really got into gaming back in 2001. Needless to say, but still: it's terrible, it's awful, and life ca really suck sometimes. My deepest condolences to his friends, colleagues, and especially his wife.
It's the kind of awful that refuses comprehension.
the problem is that one comapny wants to own the entire economic food chain. you buy their console. you buy games they have specifically licensed. even when you buy a used game you have to kick over cash to play it. and they control the digital marketplace for their games exclusively. this is all about microsoft controlling how you acces entertainment and getting a cut every time you do so.
