    Damn you!
    My girlfriend visited at the weekend and we wondered into town and she coaxed me into buying a DS, a nice blue DS with Nintendogs. How do they do it…how do you make such a splendid game. Its a glorified tamakoti, but its so damned cute and I want more puppies.

    Is Nintendogs the perfect DS game….it could possibly be.

    Are Nintendo hiring????

    Bwahahahahaha……

    soon they will take over the world and all those who jumped ship will be made to pay…..

    So glad I never publicly said I was thinking of getting a PS3 if I could only afford 1 console this time round.

    I’ve currently got a Labrador Retriever, a Miniature Schnauzer and a Toy Poodle. They’re a handful :)

    Have to say, if parents have kids who want a puppy for xmas, this is the perfect thing way to get out of buying a real puppy. All the benefits, none of the down-sides.

    Can you actually kill the puppy by not feeding it or anything, because that wouldn’t be very “Nintendo”……..it probably just gets taken by some animal welfare society. Or maybe it gives you the old “fido has gone to live on a big farm in the country” excuse…..

    Good point, if you could set the DS to bark whenever the postman arrived…..now that would be some classic Nintendo innovation right there!

    And since I’m too lazt to check:
    I know gamecube is coming third, but if you include the handheld market is nintendo still in 3rd place or does it move up?

    BTW Sarcasm is difficult to achieve online(and even more so to recognise) due to the lack of audio.

    Isn’t Nintendo coming in joint 2nd give or take, what with Xbox barely selling in Japan, I thought it all balances out. And in terms of profits they’re doing really well. Although it is increasingly getting harder to find gamecube software in the shops, this side of the pond anyways.

    Considering they are the only hardware manufacturer to be turning a profit I would say they are doing very well.
