I don't know, I liked my Wii. Resident Evil 4 and Spider-Man were fun as hell. Not to mention Zelda, which is why I got the damn thing to begin with. I got a few other games for the Wii but for the life of me I cannot tell you which ones. It was fun while I used it. I just like my Xbox controller more.

This thing looks really cool but much like the PlayStation, I can't handle a small controller.

I'm real excited for what the Xbone and PS4 have coming out. Madden 2017 is really going to shake up the industry with its innovative gameplay, and the new Call of Duty game is going to completely change the way we look at first person shooters. Don't even get me started on how ground-breaking the PS4 controller has turned out to be. Sony's idea to take a Wiimote and turn it sideways to use as a regular controller was just brilliant. I don't know why nobody thought of it before.

That's all way more exciting than being able to unzip my Gameboy from my SNES and take my game on the road.

You ever break up with your boyfriend or girlfriend, and then some time later you found out they were happier with their new partner than they ever were with you? Then you get real mad because they don't miss you? Nintendo wrote us all off back in 2006. We ditched them for the PSX and the Saturn. Then we got excited about the Wii, only to find out that it wasn't for us! It was for everyone but us! How dare they! They made us so mad we said bad things about the Wii and the Wii-U, just to let everyone know how mad we were at Nintendo for making games for a different market. Now they're making another new console that's not for us! It's a **** outrage!

Call of Duty and Madden? Like 95% of the games mentioned on this very board are games that can't be obtained on a Nintendo console. And many of those games are ones are the ones making headlines.

I've reconciled with the fact that I'm no longer Nintendo's target demographic when they lost most of their 3rd party support. Nintendo, for all their quirky console hardware, has done little to grow their base on the console front. Their hardware solves problems nobody is really having. People only buy their hardware because they want to play Mario and Zelda. I admit they're fun too. If those same games were released on PS4 and XBone, likely Nintendo's hardware sales would be even further in the toilet than they currently are. Most people already have a smart phone, Nintendo DS, or Playstation handheld. Now Nintendo is releasing another product to compete against those platforms (to some degree), one of which they already own. The console side of their product will probably barely be able to compete with the prior generation of consoles. Their online service offering to, you know, actually bring gamers together in venues other than a living room and car, is friggin awful. Their strategy just doesn't make sense to me.

I'd say this is my experience. I bought the Wii, we played Wii sports, Mario galaxy (which was a **** GREAT series, I still play it on the Wii U /backwards compatible) and Zelda. I bought the Wii U, we played Mario Kart, Mario World, and Zelda. I would play the Metroid Prime series, which was also amazing (and I did buy the collection on the nintendo store to play), but they have yet to make another one.

And that's... pretty much it. I did play Bayonetta 1 when it was a nintendo exclusive, interesting choice there.

I don't think this thing is going to make portable gaming people leave their DS3DHDSGBX, as it's not THAT portable (and the battery life on those things is measured in WEEKS), and to have "portable quality" gaming either the power of the hardware or battery life is going to suffer. I love the DS. I still throw my ancient one in my bag for airplane flights. But I wouldn't do that with this thing. Why would you? My kids have 75$ tablets now capable of playing games, reading books, surfing the net, watching hulu/netflix/hbo/amazon prime/ running a hundred different educational apps. Why would you take a device that is bulkier, and does one of those things?

So.. for most people it will be a console, but not really a console, and will not be portable at all. So, likely a much less powerful console, that runs the handful of Nintendo first party games released for it (and maybe 10-12 third party ones at launch, then nothing else). Just like the last 3 systems from Nintendo. I'll likely still buy one, it seems like the first Christmas after a new Nintendo system shows up we pick it up, and I love their first party titles. But I'm paying 300 bucks to play Zelda and Mario. I'm comfortable with that, it seems.

I for one am glad that Coro still writes paragraphs to tell us all we're dumb for reasons he made up.

You really gotta be drinking the Nintendo kool-aid to get excited about a 720p tablet with a 3 hour battery life and terrible controllers attached.

I have no use whatsoever for a PS4 or XBone. I've never been even slightly tempted to get one. There's not a game in existence for either of them that makes me think, "I need a console." I had a PS3 almost since they came out, and rarely used it for gaming. It was occasionally a media player, before I got sick of Sony's shoddy media support. My kids played several hundred hours of Little Big Planet on it, that's about it.

I do, very occasionally, play MarioKart8 on the Wii-U, but even that's not my style. I play it with my kids.

When I play a game, it's on PC. Consoles don't offer me anything that the PC doesn't do better in every possible way. Consoles also don't tend to get the types of games I want to play, and when they do, they lack the player community mod support that makes them awesome. So I don't know that I have any interest in consoles.

Well, except maybe this Nintendo Switch. I probably still would get tired of the gimmick fast, but the mobile aspect of it is nice.

Will I get one? Meh, probably not. We'll see. But I'm certainly more interested in it than I am in XBone or PS4.

I want an XBone. Specifically for Destiny.

Because they won't release a goddamn PC port.

That looks like an FPS game.

Yes. It'd be mainly for when I get bored of the Div.

Unless it's for friends reasons, you'd be better served going PS4 for that game. That's the console that lands the exclusivity on DLC for that game.

And you can play with that Raell guy on the Xbone...he loves Destiny. I have a character slot that I am not using and would be happy to play through all the content again. Because...its fun.

Feels like an improvement. However, if it still means I am playing alone.. it ceases to matter, because I have a fair amount of stuff I can do in Destiny wherein I am: not alone.

Yeah, I wish they allowed cross server play. Segregation is stupid.

I feel like I should throw in a "kinky".

Also, no Overwatch here.
