I dunno Iwata.. how does running and dancing on a mat while flailing your arms about look to other people? Who cares what this dude thinks. He turned the gaming king nintendo into some yoga-inspired aerobic exercise platform for a casual market. Anyways, I don't think the ipad is all that special either, but I'd rather have that over a kindle and to think it could replace textbooks I believe it's the ideal solution. I'm not going to read a book on an ipod touch and thinking about browsing the web on an iphone is headache-inducing.

Could care less if a console need to be everything. I buy them only to play games even if its not HD (WII). If I want the the best graphic, I buy the PC version all the time, even if I have to wait a few days after the console release.

I really too think that Nintendo have to step it up as well. It can't even play DVDs. I know that they are strictly a gaming company, but on have to think that the Wii is almost at the end of the rope. The Wiimote is not that accurate, you have to buy additional accesories (Motion +) to make it that way. It is tethered to the nunchuck, and those destroyed countless tvs. It also needs the Wii bar which is not acurate for a big guy like me. Off the sensor, then you will mess up. I like the Dual Shock 3. I don't need a bar for the controller. The system's design is uninspiring. And they don't have to many killer games. The New Mario game is yet to be seen.

 Metroid Prime isn't a killer game?

 I grew up playing games on various Nintendo platforms. It was a great part of my childhood, but as Sony and Microsoft enter in to the world of HD gaming, Nintendo is falling behind. They refuse to have HD visuals and multi-channel audio. Gone are the days where 480p visuals and Dolby ProLogic II audio are the norm and everyone loves it.

I'd love to be able to play Metroid Prime or Legend of Zelda in 1080p with 5.1 surround or DTS surround! If this trend keeps up, Nintendo's consoles will become less mainstream for me, and more of a dust collector... and I don't want that!
