With the Wii U and New Nintendo 3DS out, what do you think about these developments?

It's never a good idea to announce a new console when your current console is only 2 years old, even when that new console is still a few years out.

I'm not sure whether it was the right or wrong choice, I can see why they did it, to avoid people thinking the jump to smart devices meant the end of dedicated devices, and it doesn't effect me massively, if my Wii U broke today I'd replace it tomorrow. However, I can see it putting many off, its certainly made my brother (who being at school doesn't have much money to spend on these things) think again about picking up a Wii U.

Yeah, I think it's their way of apologizing for for going mobile. Still if it is cheap and offers portable gaming of mobile games with physical buttons they can find themselves a niche.

We don't even know if the NX is a portable or a console. There has been rumors floating around about how Nintendo wants o have a shared infrastructure for their handheld and console. Sort of like the PS Vita and PlayStation TV.

Both. Nintendo wanted it to be the next big thing since they saw how popular tablet gaming is. Too bad no one bought into it. There only hope with mobile and PC having a come back is to make a system that can get the same multiplatform games the PS4 and Xbox One get. Well, that and Amiibo.

I feel like Nintendo is spreading itself too thin by adding the NX to the mix.

Memo to Nintendo:
Why not use your current resources and manpower to improve an under powered console with a better interface, so you can attract more third party developers to boost your lackluster library (how many more times do we need a Mario reincarnation, really?!) first..

I've had the Wii U since 2013, it's the newest console that I own (aside from the 3DS XL) and has the least amount of games and play hours. I don't even have 5 games for it, which is sad. What discourages me is the awful clunky software that updates every.time.you.turn.it.on. Like how many updates to they need and the damn thing is still as slow as ever. My 2011 smartphone is faster.

Whenever I go to EB, I end up deviating to the Playstation 3 section because they seem to have always have something new and interesting, and that they don't have a basic mascot (as in Mario for Nintendo, Sonic for Sega, etc) that they continually exploit to produce games for.

They want to do some great things after the Wii's success, but adding a band-aid to an already festering problem is not going to help them regain their former glory.

I'm a bad fangirl as I stopped buying their hardware since the DSi. I still feel a bit burned when the Wii didn't get most of the games that were promised and Wii U just feels like a glorified tablet with a horrid price tag. So most of my Nintendo gaming is handheld and Wii is relegated to hulu duty.

I might get their new console AFTER I see a decent library actually on the shelves. Meanwhile, I'm just going to try to replace my dead GameCube and relive glory days.

Hopefully theyll go the same way as sony and develop a virtual reality head gear for this new system. If they do and they come up with a virtual reality pokemon I am so there!!!

Well done, Nintendo.
