Another technologically backward console with a gimmick. After how badly they bungled the WiiU they lost me as a customer. Only a Retro developed Metroid could pique my interest at this point.
If the gimmick is good, it doesn't need the graphics. Great graphics won't make a great Nintendo game better. Yes, it won't get Call of Battlefield 18, but it will get new Mario, Zelda, Smash Brothers, and Mario Kart games. Games that run very well with older hardware.
If the price point is right, this works. I just doubt the price point is right. At $249, this is a buy for a lot of people. At $299, suddenly this falls apart.
$199 on Black Friday? I'd almost definitely buy this. $199 and a Mario game? Done deal. From a guy that hasn't owned a Nintendo console since the GC (one of my all-time favorites), but owned a PS3 and Xbox 360.
