Hey, you can't be too made at Nintendo. After all, John Morrison has practically molded himself in the image of one of their characters.

The one that pissed me off the most was the DS Lite, they altered the input slot so you could no long play gameboy color or original game boy games in it. I have kept the original DS just for that reason. They sell you software that should give you an endless right to use that game. However they like to phase out the old and force you to buy the new to fatten their already exploding pockets...

Nice rant. Totally understand what you're saying. I just wanted to post, though, to highlight just how good a video game company, Nintendo has been over the last two decades.

I'm not a gamer like I used to be, but back when I was a little lad, there were two forces at the head of console game development.

Sega and Nintendo.

Now these two were head to head through the master sytem/nes days, and through the genesis/snes days. What happened after this point, though, was interesting storytelling if nothing else.

A giant entered the fray. Sony. and they released the PS. Sega's response to this was, of course, the Saturn, also a 32 bit power console and the height of mainstream tech. Nintendo, on the other hand, waited. Sony, with their powerhouse resources, absolutely flooded the market with games - and I mean FLOODED that muthaf***a. No matter what you were interested in, their was a bloody game for it. True Pinball has to be one of the more obscure titles. Sega, however, fell flat. They couldn't release titles as quickly, they panicked, rushed their games and produced total garbage. This was a crushing blow for Sega as a pioneer gaming company.

Meanwhile, as soon as 64 bit gaming tech became available, Nintendo put all their years of preparation into a strong N64 product, which could compete with the PS in spite of the Playstation's flying head start and unending finances.

Then came the next era; 128 bit gaming, and a new, EVEN BIGGER powerhouse joined the fray. Microsoft made a massive statement in the console industry with their release of the Xbox, which immediately relegated Ninetendo's Game Cube as a 3rd runner behind the PS2 and XBox.

Nintendo was now in trouble. They had a firm grasp on hand-held gaming but in the console department, they were simply outmatched in resources. what did they do?

They focused their hand-held gaming grip and they invented the Wii. They decided that they could no longer compete for the main gaming demographic and used their children's market to reel in the family market too. They made stupid crap like Brain Training, Wii sports...

Now that Sony and Microsoft are entering into the Wii's territory of motion sensor gaming etc... I have to wonder...?

what are these guys gonna do next to survive?

...

...

<ahem> yeah, sorry about that, just felt like a good opportunity to get it out.

It's the same deal with Apple. There's a new iPod/iPhone every year if not every few months.

I'm saying this while playing Super Mash Bros. Brawl, keep in mind, so I might be a little bit biased.

I didn't know Morrison said "HEY, LISTEN!" every 5 seconds.

Nintendo don't churn out games from their big franchises every few months, unlike Call of Duty and all that shite
