[Every Friday, Destructoid will pose topical a question to the community. Answer it if you want!]
Perhaps the most controversial story this week was the announcement by Nintendo of America that it was not planning to bring Xenoblade, The Last Story and Pandora's Tower to its territories, despite an extensive campaign by gamers under the banner of Operation Rainfall.
Nintendo has not given an official reason, although it has always hidden behind localization costs and financial viability in the past. Do you agree that it makes no business sense to bring these titles to the Americas, or do you think there is profit, or at least useful PR, to be had from giving certain gamers what they want?
That is the question this week -- should Xenoblade, The Last Story and Pandora's Tower come to North America, or do you think Nintendo of America is right to leave these games where they are? Are gamers being whiny or righteous when they demand these titles, and is Nintendo justified or not?
