Obligatory chat about how hyped (or un-hyped) people are about the NX. State your opinions!!
I'm probably the only person who will still call it the NX even after release
Not completely sold, but still intrigued. As far as gimmicks goes, this sounds far more practical than what the Wii and Wii U had to offer.
Gonna side with Mystic on this one and wait to see what's on the software side.
That would have narrowed their market far too much, on top of giving up the profit margin on hardware sales and the static hardware platform that console developers expect. The gamers within that market are used to buying games for extremely cheap - most of them would be turned off by the prices Nintendo asks for, especially when they'd be showing up side by side with free to play games in the app store. A kid trying to convince his mom or dad to pay 60 dollars to buy them the latest Mario would have to contend with them pointing out that Angry Birds right over there is free, they've played it themselves and know it's fun, why not play that instead?Hm. I would have preferred an iOS peripheral, publish the games up on the App Store, and be done with it.
SSNTails, would you ever get a dev kit to port Roly Poly Putt to the NS

Being an old fogey, I'm not dragging around more hardware with me. Apple's ecosystem is also pretty monolithic, so I don't think fragmentation is a big deal.
