It's not really that I don't have enough to play or anything, especially with my new 3D toy, but here's the way I see it. Every week past the initial release that FF3 doesn't come out, our odds get worse and worse that it WILL come out. Like, there was a 75% chance it'd come out the week right after. Then a 50% chance this week. Then even lower next week, etc.
Okay, so it doesn't actually work that way, but it sure feels like it. Developers like to forget about the VC entirely, sometimes for years at a time (Kirby Super Star).
@Zero It has everything to do with the 3DS. Reggie has said that Nintendo is focusing entirely on the 3DS and Pokemon, and this just confirms it. DSiWare is not a competition, because people know they can download those and transfer them to 3DS anyway. VC and WiiWare are purposely being shunned this week, so that Nintendo consumers focus on their new handheld, and its software. That much is obvious, I think.
@anon_mastermind I agree. I've noticed that any time Nintendo has a big game release, they tend to shun VC and WiiWare for that week. It makes business sense, since they want as much focus on their new products as possible.
