Nothing.... except for pokemon, but that's mainly Gamefreak, which is interesting because some people are not too aware of that....
Thier consoles always seem to disapoint me. They seem promising but I usually feel like it's missing something.

Only on the internet is "loyalty" a bad word. Brand loyalty has been around since the terms "consumer" and "goods" became commonplace. People are loyal to restaurants, dishwasher brands, local produce, sports teams, etc. It's not silly to be loyal to a console brand - you like their stuff, and so you're inclined to defend them if they're attacked.

There's loyalty and then there's insanity. I think we all know which side this is...

Now that we've made that distinction, to continue you're completely off-topic rant, You talk like being loyal to a corperation that cares nothing for your well being is in any way admirable. A consumer has to vote with his/her wallet, and if your vote says "I'll keep buying your product even when there are better ones", how exactly is that in anyway beneficial to you? Granted, I don't believe that's what "loyalty" is, but that's where a lot of people take it. And just because a lot of people do something doesn't mean its okay. That's where you have to think for yourself and realize that what people are doing may not be the smartest thing.

And lastly, while it depends on the circumstances (if they have their facts wrong and it would be of benefit to them to know the truth), you generally shouldn't be inclined to fend a company when they're "attacked", just because you "like their stuff". It's the company's stuff, not yours, not your friend's, not anyone who means anything to you. They can defend themselves, they have people for that - Advertisers, PR guys, and many others. Why would they need you to defend them, what benefit would it bring to you? What benefit would it bring to them? Most of these "attacks" tend to be verbal expressions of opinion, what's to defend them from? Not to mention the most you can do, so long as there's nothing to correct, is to express your own opinion, which could easily do jack squat. Absolutely none of it makes any sense, so why bother?

Um, sorry, I don't thank Nintendo, or any other company, for anything. They are in this to make money. What I am thankful for are friends and family. You know, people that actually care about me as a person and not as a customer.

I am thankful for always being purely a video game system. Sure its got Netflix and Hulu but nonetheless its sticks to its roots and puts games first. Nintendo knows that if you don't already have a DVD player or even a blue ray player by now, that's your own fault, which is true.

lol This makes me laugh because how many of us husbands and fathers feel the same way about this? :D

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

I never said it's admirable, but it IS totally fine. There's nothing wrong with it. Who cares if the company doesn't care? My coworker has a crush on that dude from IronMan. He's never gonna know or care, so should she just stop? Relax, man/woman, it's ok for people to support companies.

Blantantly going against sensible logic is not totally fine in my book, and I don't see why I can't at least speak out against it.

Speaking of which, your comparison is stupid. You're talking about a complex emotional reaction that a person can't control, not a concious choice.

That's cool and all, but I am grateful that companies that do care for me as a customer.

This whole economy thing, I participate in it. I go to work and earn a wage. I buy things. I interact with several companies on a daily basis. Just makes my life a whole lot easier when I can deal with one that sells a great product or service and has admirable business ethics, you know?

Not necessarily relating to Nintendo, just saying that companies that care about you as a customer = a company that I care about.

Well I think you're being "stupid," (how old is the person I'm actually taking three minutes of my life to debate with?) and quite frankly, the least "sensible" person in this back-and-forth. If somebody wants to defend a company, let them. It doesn't matter if they receive compensation or not - if they want to, then they want to. Our world is cutthroat enough the way it is, and if some people like defending a company because they enjoy their products or because they feel the company is getting a bad rap, I see absolutely nothing wrong with it.

Hey, what this guy says makes a heck of a lot of sense. It might not apply directly, but it is an astute observation; the loyalty as a "bad word" thing is kind of old.

Now that we've made that distinction, to continue you're completely off-topic rant, You talk like being loyal to a corperation--

Insanity? cue image of the Joker
To consider the fact that you responded to a rote comparison with a wall of text, I'm not sure you should be pointing fingers about a rant--

You can take that how you will, I would rather be a referee than take sides.
