No. He is wrong. As input methods evolve and become more complex they will require even more processing power and specialized hardware. Think beyond just graphics. Our living rooms are going to be home to some really impressive tech in the next 5 years.

All that being said... gamers will go where the games are so if they are on console that is where we will be.

Without a doubt the placement of the volume button on the Original 3DS XL was the worst. It was so annoying to randomly have the volume shoot all the way to maximum while playing game. Honestly I might be most excited about the New 3DS because of the new volume switch location. Do they do any user testing on these things?



RandomNerds commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

@Swiket At first glance they look silly, but they are totally meant to make them more visible when playing in low light. I get that most gamers have them memorized, but sometimes when you crack open a new title it helps to see the buttons when that call to action is on screen. I would have preferred back lit buttons that could be turned off at will, would have been a nice touch.

This could have been an amazing two player Zelda experience had Nintendo decided to port/remake the tingle tuner experience to work on the gamepad. Instead we get some stupid message in a bottle thing... Oye, what a missed opportunity.

I'm not claiming to be a game developer nor am I claiming that I know how the process works… But from where I'm sitting I think we are seeing Nintendo suffering from a lack of resources to update their asset librabry to HD. In otherwords they have limited previous work to draw on to build these HD WiiU games. Alot of what they're doing has to be re-rendered or in many cases made from scratch.

I'm cooled out. Not gonna buy it. Which sucks because I had planned too and this will just Hurt the Wii U's chances even more. Also I think that Assassins Creed III has crappy combat and I really have not enjoyed it, I'm glad I didn't play the other games in the series.

I think the N64 is my favorite console of all time. Every few months I check eBay for a DD, but I just can't pull the trigger on a $800+ artifact. Maybe if I win the loto one of these days I'll pic one up. It would be such a cool conversation piece to have sitting underneath my TV.
