    Nobody got it. The correct answer was:

    ...why did Iwata tell us they were having trouble with the HD, given everyone else has been working it out with no problems on inferior tech for years?

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    He was telling porkies or exaggerating a bit to cover up the fact they had re-allocated most of their developers to saving the 3DS and were therefore far behind in developing for wii u?

    What do I win?!?!?!

    WiiU is finally on my radar, loved Pikmin 1 and 2 and Pikmin 3 looks great, and with DK, Mario 3D on the horizon, looks like an Ideal compliment to a PS4.

    Bought bit.trip Runner 2 last night. I've not tried played it yet though.
    This is a pointless post.

    That said, it highlighted for me, the need for game demos on all e-shop games similar to XBLA. I ended up downloading the demo on Xbox and trying it there before buying on Wii U.

    I've really only glanced through the store. Is there anything on there like that Lost Winds game on wiiware for the wii? Can it even be bought and used on the Wii U? I've never even played it but people seemed to like it at the time.

    Yup.

    Bit Runner is great but I do agree that they need to have demoes as standard.

    To be fair, mandatory demos aren't really a generational thing, but are something that they should really be done as standard anyway. I wonder if there's publicly available data on Xbox Live about how many demo downloads translated to purchases?

    There was an article on this very site some months ago, stating that games with demos didn't sell as well as games without demos. It kinda suggested that once people actually got to play a game in advance, it didn't seem as impressive as the hype suggested.

    For what it's worth though, Bit Trip Runner 2 is a brilliant little game. Just wish I had held out a couple of weeks longer to pick it up on the Wii U instead.

    Still waiting for it to be released on the AU eshop.......zzzzzz...might get here one day...
  • Deleted user 24 July 2013 11:05:14
    problem with a lot of demos, they are really the early stages of the game, where its basic handheld or game mechanic stuff. Nintendo have a problem with this with game media as well, for instance, NSMBu, they literally only show off world-1 stuff. i don't think it helps.

    Is there any demos of any kind at all? Whilst its put people of some games, i'm sure it sells games to many as well.
