Have you asked any European fans? Just about everyone (who's not a fanboy like me) practically hates.. every gaming company that releases everything in the US before Europe. Releasing the DSi in Europe first would be a smart move. No doubt about that.Are you serious? As if Nintendo has ever been worried about keeping fans. As if there's someone who's actually not going to buy the hardware because of when it gets released, regardless of geography. That's a terrible argument.
We've had things come to Europe before North America before.Again, you lot can think whatever you want, but aside from one three-mont-old ambiguously-worded quote from someone who doesn't actually work for Nintendo of Europe, there is nothing - no precedent, no logic - to suggest that Europe will get the DSi significantly earlier than will North America.
And old quotes are better than no quotes. (ANd I still believe someone said they were aiming to release it in Europe during springtime before Reggie...) :3
...But I guess this argument doesn't really belong here. Meh.
