    I'm assuming that Nintendo has written off the Wii-U at the moment. They want to cash in on the 3DS without the distraction of the Wii-U version.

      Staggering the launches actually makes it more likely that people will buy both. I was only planning to buy the Wii u version, since smash for me is a party game that I break out when friends are over. However, now that I know there will be roughly six months between launches, it's much more likely that I'll get both. I'm sure the same is true for many others, and even the opposite (planning to buy 3ds only and now getting both).
