Wii want to play with u

Nintendo's new console is a controller with a touch screen, designed specifically not to compete with the Apple Ipad, and cannot be taken out of the living room. Still no love for indie and homebrew developers, and the 3DS is still freakin spectacular.

Of course it will make a boatload of money, and it's far better than Microsofts conference (don't look it up. It was just shameful. Their big announcement was Halo 4, and without bungie it's all up in the air)

But back to Nintendo: I have a love/hate relationship with this company. Their mentality regarding their own profound success is something along the lines of "Gosh! where did all this money come from?" and yet they push aside general purpose ad open development for their own proprietary hardware and software. You want to make a game for Nintendo? Tough stuff. You don't work for a game development company. You're just a curious kid. Nintendo would rather you play their game's then look into them yourself. It's the kind of evil that I'd expect from Apple or Disney.

This thing will make boatloads of money.
