He's giving his opinion on a consumer product, it's not a person or even a belief system (lol). If I say the new Wendy's cheeseburger is terrible or the new Accord from Honda is awful, and a person's feelings are hurt, seriously they need to get over themselves. It's just a product, as such it's open for criticism based on the merits (or lack thereof) of the said product.
I am a big fan of Nintendo games (note I said games) despite what some have said, but sometimes the Nintendo fan community can get a bit full of themselves with the self righteous sense of persecution.
If Sony and MS' new machine's were basically a moderately souped up 360/PS3 level tech with a fat touchscreen controller and a pretty wishy washy OS/online service, they would be taking heat from devs and consumers too.
Even in hindsight, a lot of Nintendo fans will admit a lot of the company's past policies were poor ones, ie: the decision to not have any type of CD-ROM support for the N64, FMV and having story cut scenes in a game aren't the devil (nowadays many Nintendo games use them), the odd design choices (hardware and software wise) on the GameCube, the graphical gap on the Wii to the PS3/360 was too large for third parties to bridge (the lack of shaders and so on) and casual gaming brought more shovelware garbage (not just limited to Nintendo but Kinect and others as well) than actual innovation in many cases, etc.
But if you spoke up during those generations you would get attacked by the Nintendo Defense Force. It's just silly.
