Looks like another Gamecube for Nintendo

Not such a horrible thing, there were a ton of cool Gamecube games but it doesn't endear them to third parties. Problems they made this gen:

- confusing mess of supported peripherals/games
- Wii U name confuses people
- Very little marketing in NA/EU
- Underpowered hardware again, this is sort of Nintendos thing but they really pissed off third parties with that slow CPU and only 2GB of memory
- Made Amazon and EA angry at the same time
- eShop still sucks (seriously if I was a dev I would be pissed that they keep fucking this up)

Right now Ubisoft is one of the few companies really making an effort.

All of that said Nintendo is a weird company in that they can afford to go it alone, massive cash reserves and an amazing stable of highly desirable franchises.

The real problem Ninty made was essentially putting out the same console twice in a row, it was under powered the first time, it's still underpowered this time.

It actually kinda amazes me they're still even around, how many rehashed 20 year old platformers do we need before people get sick of them? Personally I was tired of them after the NES.
