Only thing people playing this are catching is security breaches and data theft.

I have been playing alot, northampton is the best spot I have found along the main drag up to and including smith college. Walked 50km in the last week lol

Join the blue team if you are playing as it is clearly superior.

As to end game there is gym battles, and PVP, trading and Raids are all planned for the future.

I find the raid idea interesting. Then again, they'll have to do SOMETHING to keep people playing. Walking around catching Pokémans is fun and all, but the novelty will wear off soon.

Then again, maybe instead of planning all of this great stuff for the future, they should first fix the server issues.

It's not just their servers, the traffic is so high that even cell phone providers can't keep up. It is unthinkable that this many people even have the app downloaded, let alone are logging in at the same time.

Good point. Didn't think about that one.

How much is Nintendo's stock up now?

You'd have to think between Pokemon GO and the announcement of the tiny NES Nintendo is going to make up for a ton of not doing anything noteworthy since the Wii's release.

One would hope so. Not that I found the Wii super exciting, but video games wouldn't be the same if Nintendo stopped existing.

A bit off topic, but when the wii first came out, it was great and unique with the interactive movement component. It is also a great system for kids. Sadly Nintendo has fallen nearly a decade behind other gaming systems as a competitive consol company, and apps have taken the casual kid market that the wifi targeted.

The mini Nintendo also looks like it needs a way to expand the games if it wants to be successful.
