Nintendo Throws Up Detour On Memory Lane

Yikes! Looks like some of the third-party memory cards floating around out there don't work with the new Zelda.
I'm guessing third-party sales don't hurt Nintendo, but you have to wonder... Zelda's bound to sell hundreds of thousands of copies at the very least, so there's gotta be a decent percentage of that number who just might have to buy the official Nintendo memory card to save their game.

..Meh. Just a lame conspiracy theory, brought on by me being too tired in all likelihood laugh.gif
Whoa! Slow down there, tubby! You're not on the moon yet!

    Nintendo needs to wise up? Explain that one. It's not like nonfunctional 3rd party crapware's gonna hurt their sales any.

    Nintendo doesn't need to wise up. The people who buy cut rate memory cards need to wise up. You get what you pay for folks. You might get away with using that $9.99 MadCatz for a while, but someday when you're 35 hours into an RPG or 8 seasons into a football dynasty, you'll regret it.

    I've made it a personal rule of thumb to never buy a memory card from anyone other than the manufacturer of the system. Sure they cost more, but I'd rather spend some extra cash to avoid having to start over after hours of gameplay.
