They are at a point where they have to further demonstrate value proposition for the USA consumer. Resting on their laurels has become increasingly harder to drive sell-through. I'm not convinced that Neo and Scorpio have enough core pull that Sony and...

The reason why I haven't said anything about 3DS because I haven't heard back from NPD yet on whether or not I can discuss 3DS numbers. So I just posted the usual numbers in the meantime. NPD HQ is on Long Island near NYC, and it's 4 AM here in NYC right now. So it may...

What matters is the macro----how healthy is the ecosystem, and how do the overall markets sell.   At the moment, Home Consoles are the future of USA retail, and Handhelds are almost dead. 3DS is unwell. It's technically alive hardware-wise thanks to fads and a few Nintendo IP, but as an ecosystem...
