What the fuck!? How did anyone ever figure this out? I was stuck for four hours before I read this is what you have to do.
One pipe is broken immediately after you find super bombs. It took me about 5 minutes to figure it out when I was 11. Perhaps you should stop being bad at things and expecting hand-holding.

What went wrong?
I remember being stuck in Onett for the whole weekend (rip my weekend rental game) as a kid not knowing that you have to say NO to the skate punk in the arcade when asked if you want to be a member.
Games became mainstream and socially acceptable
When they were viewed as being for autistic nerds and manchildren, they were made for autistic nerds and manchildren. Now that everyone and their mother is "XD such a dork" they're made for the lowest common denominator.
IIRC, the only other pipe I can think of that is already busted beforehand, that is similar in design to this pipe, is in Maridia already.
If there is another one that I can't recall, fine. But the other one I know of that is already busted, is in Maridia.
>Using the Power Bomb on the outside has no effect
This pissed me off, it's a fucking bomb it should work.
It makes sense. The energy from the bomb is going to be more volatile inside of the tube, because there's less room for it to escape. When a bomb is detonated in the water, the energy escapes in every direction. So the amount that actually affects the tube is much less.
Also, the bomb was only able to crack the tube. The tube broke, because the water was putting pressure on it. With it's weakened integrity, the glass collapsed under the pressure.
So if you consider the difference in power from an inside blast to an outside blast, the blast from the outside probably wouldn't even cause the tube to crack. Thus, it never breaks.
you recall wrong, you come across another pipe like this in brinstar i believe. although the area is technically maridia.
regardless of that though, breaking the pipe is entirely optional.
Yeah, games shouldn't be made for fun! They should be made for elitists who are the only one's who will divine solutions from the ether. What the fuck is wrong with these losers who think that major franchises with beloved characters should be welcoming and fun?!
The main hint is actually the mini map. IIRC it implies heavily that there's a way to go down, so you end up standing in that tube wondering why you can't. From there if you're stubborn enough you'll figure it out.
Don't you get some footage of the thing being blown up on the demo mode if you wait on the title long enough, or am I imagining things?
Either way, if you look at the map you can see there are paths up and down, suggesting there's a way out of the tube. It's definitely one of the less obvious parts of the game but it doesn't seem too crazy.
You get a lot of things in demo footage, but I don't think this was one of em.
That said, it was in literally every fucking commercial because of course you'd show something that cool in order to sell it.
The mini-map makes it clear that you can go up and down in that chamber. Clearly that's not possible with the tube in the way, and you've already seen a similar tube that has been destroyed, so there must be a way to destroy it. You use weapons throughout the game to destroy obstacles to open new paths, so you do exactly that.
