have you seen the sales figures for Nintendo in North America? They have the family gaming market cornered. Be real, what kid would opt out of getting a 3ds in order to get a PS VISTA? The WiiU is for all ages and it's not for the "hxc gaming" market which has been dominated by systems too busy trying to one-up eachothers graphics to focus on maintaining some sort of branding consistency. Since the mis-step of the gamecube, I'd say things have been getting better and better for nintendo fiends. Nothing will ever quite match the 8bit days tho, no way jose!
How does this address anything I said?
