Another crappy console made by Nintendo... seriously WTF with Nintendo ?! Back in the 80's and the 90's they were so good at making consoles. But nowdays they just make cheap consoles with poor hardware in them. What's the point in releasing a console that isn't even better than a PS3 or an XBOX 360 when both Sony and Microsoft are going to announce their next-gen consoles ? As if a tablet was more important than having a new hardware that would be able to render graphics for games that you couldn't even imagine on nowdays consoles... I hate what Nintendo has become and ll probably never buy any hardware from them anymore.
