Games Ah yes, this was pretty inevitable. Nintendo is facing dropping sales and earnings for another year, and as such, it should come as no surprise that they have just announced the Wii's successor. The Japanese gaming giant will unveil the machine during E3 in June, and the device is scheduled for release in 2012.

Nintendo has clearly chosen their target aiming at a wide, simple audience. I fit well in their target: I play just once in a while at some friend's place, the more people participating the better. Which implies that I suck using "real" controllers now. Don't play an FPS on a console with me, I take half an hour just picking up the controls ;)

My hobby and part of my job is realtime computer graphics. But to play Mario Party or what-it's-called I don't really care... Players like you need more hardware, more investment and frequent novelties. You need to be big, whealty, and to compete in a crowded market. Nintendo choose (and did so long before the Wii) to catch another market.

So it's perfectly fine for you to not like or enjoy anymore their products, but try to think if it's because of the company or because of you changing interest, growing up, changing your mind! Would you still love Super Mario, or become a fan of Pokemon today? For how useless we think it could be, if we were 8 we'd probably be into it. Realize that it's you who changed, more than they did - and it's much more interesting! ;)
