Nintendo now has to rely on their hardcore faithful as well as luring in children and teenagers via Mario, Pokemon, Zelda, etc, kids who are genuinely interested in video games (and not just something simple like Angry Birds),

That's the argument people - myself included - keep making for putting Nintendo games on smartphones and tablets, b/c that's where kids ARE playing games these days, Angry Birds is a game, a very big popular game w/ many sequels. I don't think SM3DW or MK8 or SSB should be an "app" game, but stick Yoshi in a Flappy Bird endless flyer or Kirby in Doodle Jump and wrap the games in 3DS ads. I think app minigames would be a better use of money than tv commercials.

Nintendo keeps saying app games now are quick money now but a loser in the long run, but I say just the opposite, attract kids on phones and tablets now so they want to upgrade to real games in the future. More kids start gaming on phones than Nintendo consoles, Nintendo needs to reach out to them.

The 94 mil have spent lots of money on large screen HD tvs, they need to put something game related on them. I think wiimote motion was a fad and exercise and dance may be fads but people will still want games on their tvs, even if game=Candy Crush.

Playing Advance Wars on my Wii U really makes me think Ninntedo missed the boat "pun intneded" w/ the Gamepad. I can think of no better use for the Gamepad online than Battleship w/ videochat. Advance Wars U would be a natural. vs gameplay against a 3DS version would be awesome. Thats what the 94 mil need, casual online gaming.

fireTV controller now not shipping until May 11, that's over a month away, so somebody must be buying it. Wii U may be ok but probably not a good time to invest in Ouya.

Thought about getting one for the Bedroom TV (I have a 48" TV in the front room for gaming) to be able to watch streamed stuff like Netflix and Hulu. But they dont seem to have the WWE Network on it so that would be a deal breaker for me. :(
