Replying to undo accidental negative mod. I might as well explain myself: I wanted to mark this as insightful because I recently came into possession of one of these consoles and have found the controller to be quite comfortable. For me the big feature of it is the audio coming from the controller itself. Yeah, the speakers aren't as good as those on my TV, but the stereo separation from a source that close is great!

Nintendo really did do something great with the controller, here. Pity the software library is still catching up.

My apologies for my pulldown-clumsiness, Sockatume.

The 'kids' that Nintendo are targeting are plenty sufficed with the 'deep' experience Temple Run gives them on their touchscreen, anywhere and everywhere. Nintendo have to realize that their target demographic are adults who grew up with Nintendo and want their children to dicover the joys too. This is what they are facing, the 'customers' they want have moved on. Also, the Wii is cannibalizing those WiiU sales. They are in the same place Sony were in in 2005. Coming off the previous gen with a wildy successful console that's still on the market and still selling like hotcakes.

Every kid I know want's either a smartphone or tablet. From my observation the only people playing consoles anymore are teenagers and adults that grew up with consoles many of which are increasingly shifting their attention to mobile. The younger kids have ditched their DSi for iTouches over the last two years and are playing casual and social games.

^^ this. So absolutely true. Kids under the age of 10 have almost no interest in consoles at all. The iPad with its plethora of freemium games gives them more to play with than a console. The goalposts have indeed moves and the console makers ad game makers targeting kids have to realize that. This is a fickle market.

I'm not sure where I am on whether or not that should be a crime, but I would like to point out that April's parents probably had their guts turn inside out upon hearing that remark.

If I were the one with the gavel, my first instinct would be to let him sweat the fear of jail for a few days then drop the case.

Not that I want to defend the PE teacher, but in my class if someone found a game on one computer they'd dump it to a floppy and put it on their machine. Back then viruses, instead of trying to mail your data out, attempted to destroy the machine. He unintentionally had a point.
