Just curious if I'm alone here in thinking Nintendo's new system will be a runaway hit?

I heard a very interesting comment today - "What if the Wii U eats into Tablets, and not the other way around?"

Indeed. The Wii U GamePad may just be the device in your home that takes timeshare, mindshare, & game-share away from those Tablet games that the media incessantly references as the console killer.

Does anyone know if Nintendo is losing money on the Deluxe $350 package, as well as the Basic $299 one?

I get that production costs & a strong Yen are putting margin pressure on the Big N...but I have a hard time believing that they can't manufacture one of these things for less than $350, even with the NintendoLand game included.
