The price is fine. I still have yet to see a game I would be interested in buying though.
Pretty much this and I don't like the Dreamcast situation they have put themselves with that thing.
I think Nintendo can avoid this situation if they keep focus on getting their own titles out in reasonable time. If they can keep a Zelda/Metroid/Mario/Pikmin always on the horizon they will probably be ok. They just can't dick around with their releases like they have in the past. I would also be interested in seeing how the Japanese adopt this console, if it becomes the biggest system in Japan then I could see a lot more Japanese third party support coming.
It won't hurt whatever the next Microsoft or Sony console is in the US due to North American players really staying focused on Western games. I could see it being the Japanese industry console of choice though.
Oh sure they can but if the console is only going to survive on Mario , Zelda ,Metroid and so on and maybe a couple of exclusives I just can't see a reason to buy it right now maybe when is cheaper and just to play those games but I don't know... can they can survive on just that and having subpar ports of the mutliplatform games the other consoles are going to be running? like say I don't see the Wii U running something like Star Wars 1313 or Watch Dogs and those will be the big early system sellers for the other companies.
