Sometimes, it's not a question of whether the move is right, but a question of whether the time is right. For Apple, the time for a touchscreen tablet wasn't right in 1993, but it certainly was in 2010.
Certainly, the time for a gamerphone wasn't right in 2000. And it looks like Nintendo doesn't think it's right in 2010, either.
"The worst part about these reviews is they are [subjective]--and their scores often depend on how drunk you got the media at a Street Fighter event." — Mona Hamilton, Capcom Senior VP of Marketing
