I don't see why we are evolving to handhelds. We have phone touchscreens, I don't want another because its such a pain to play with over time. The fact that I have big hands doesn't help either. I loved the gamecube and the Wii was great to me as well, I could play every single zelda/mario/okami there is, but as for the handheld games, I think they had it right with the gameboy sp, because no one wants to sit there and tap on a touch screen. Nintendo should just make a nintendo 64 2 that used cartridges because we all love that to fix them we just give it a breath or two, instead of buying a new cd or cleaning it while praying
I really hope nintendo does turn around, They are my favorite company by far
In the subject of the touchscreen I guess it doesn't have the same intuitiveness of feeling the buttons. It is okay for the DS where both screens are in your view or a smart phone or Vita where you only have one screen to look at but with Wii U going with a full on touch screen would be a mess. Oh wait, the Wii U touch pad controller thing has controls. Still, the ability to see your inventory on an additional screen is not innovation in my opinion. Come on, a few lazy button presses would take you to your inventory! And if they do something in the lines of you controlling something on the touch screen I hope it's intuitive or it fails.
look at the launch games: a couple nintendo games, maybe one exclusive. then a bunch of games that were on xbox and ps3 a year ago.
same as it ever was. not buying nintendo hardware anymore. not falling for those tricks.
i have a dream that they will one day go the way of sega and i will be able to play zelda on my xbox and mario on my phone. until that day i look at anyone who buys nintendo hardware as in contempt of my dream.
