Comment Netflix hasn't been about Movies for years (Score 1) 91

Orange is the New Black and House of Cards have had 4 seasons each and we're constantly seeing new shows with big budgets and high production values.

Movie fans have already seen Godfather and Empire Strikes back. They'll have a library of DVDs at their disposal. They're not really a huge market. And those that there are often prefer something that they haven't seen.

TV shows are where it's at.

It's not so much "the media", but that readers solicitously enjoy hearing about pompous rich farts being waffled by their wayward robot toys.

It reminds me of McDonald's failed attempts at selling health-food: nobody wants it; buyers want Big Macs and fries.

(And no, I don't mean this kind of Big Mac)

Comment Re:Advert aimed at wrong market? (Score 1) 251

Nothing wrong with being a "kid's console" though. Kids like games. Nintendo typically addresses this niche as a primary market, whereas Sony and MS seem to see it as secondary to the hardcore gamer.

Nintendo tends to make cheap consoles, so it will appeal to kids. I'll not be surprised if this is priced low enough that two of them are competitive with a PS4/XBOne.
