I love that Mario Kart: Wii is still selling ;D . Nintendo is the only company I know that has consistently sold evergreen titles over the past 7 years.

I second that notion. As happy as I am with the 3DS' software, I just want Monster Hunter. I could play it for hundreds of hours.

3G would be nice, but MH4 is the real issue.  If it doesn't come to NA I'm gonna have to swim to Japan and knock a few heads together.

Also, yay 3DS! Super awesome happy time!
