Last year, those drooling monkeys at Nintendo decided it'd be a good idea to release LBW and SM3DW on the EXACT SAME DAY. And everyone knew it was absolutely fucking stupid. Well, it's not confirmed right now, but rumor has it they'll be doing the same thing this year (on almost the same date, no less) with ORAS and the Wii U version of SSB4. Seriously, I don't know shit about basic marketing, and even I can tell you cannibalizing your own games like that is a HORRIBLE IDEA. Goddammit Nintendo, how many years will it take for you to get your act together?
(Mandatory reminder that despite the rampant idiocy, the Wii U is still outselling the Xbox One. So what does that make the monkeys at Microsoft?)
