Now just buy a PS3 when it comes out, but DON'T BUY ANY GAMES FOR IT. Because they lose money on them. :D

Gotta wait a few years till the price drops. I remember the old GameBoy being $100 in Canada, and now you can buy them for $10 if they're in good condition...

Man, MGS4 is going to be the most expensive game I've ever purchased. :/

To be fair, I kind of have to roll my eyes at the recent internet canonization of Nintendo. Damn kids must not remember the price fixing, "inventory management", and pretty much everything that's ever come out of Hiroshi Yamauchi's mouth...

Their new controller revitalized my mostly dead curiosity about modern games. That's it.

Hell, I'd like it if the other console makers imitated that controller. Though time will see if people actually do interesting things with it.

As for Nintendo themselves, eh. I've heard good things about some of their games, but not about some of their decisions.

This is why I'm guarding my optimism where the Wii is concerned. The control schema could be really cool, or it could be a self-limiting gimmick; it's all a question of whether many developers can do things with it that remain interesting once the novelty wears off.

Yes. I do think it might be a good way to simplify the controls for assorted 3D genres such as FPS's, and pretty much any game that requires the use of two analog sticks, one for moving and one for turning, or the like. So it could be good for that.

There's the unlikely hope that it'll shake developers into venturing more beyond the tried-and-proven genres, but even if that does happen, they'll likely just find new tried-and-proven genres to do with it. Those genres seem to come and go anyway, things like adventure and shooter genres becoming mostly the province of shareware/freeware makers as they lose mainstream commercial interest.

What is the song in that last one? I know I should know it, but I can't quite bring it forth.

Remember: The PS2 was projected to have an ungodly high price, and the price dropped on release. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the thing blows everyone's socks off.

*sigh*

I wish I worked for them instead.
