On Handheld devices:
No wonder they can't sell these things to save their lives... when they charge $5 for an ancient low-res "hit", and iTunes charges 99 cents for Angry Birds and dozens of other modern home runs.

On console devices:
Nintendo's problem here is in it's old and tired gaming strategy. A few years back, they swept the market with interactive gaming ideas when the competition was all about 1-player shoot-em-ups. But the market has passed over Nintendo, with much more sophisticated multi-player game play here (and just over the horizon). So let's hope that Nintendo has better plans for it's next-gen console games than simply yet another game controller.

So now Nintendo will have a new console that will be what... finally 1080P ? Welcome to average-land. Oh yeah... a wannabe almost iPad ? Good luck with that. In the meanwhile, if there is a market for a console+iPad... Apple is ready and waiting.Own an iPad, iPod-Touch or iPhone ? Just add a $99 Apple TV and (soon) your good to go.
