I dunno. And Reggie calling it a "console". Just makes me think. Maybe Nintendo was looking at multiple SKUs, but who really is buying the console SKU if its roughly the same as the handheld?
Did he specifically call it a HOME console? Because many people refer to handhelds as portable consoles.
People who prefer consoles more than handhelds will by the console. Form factor is not the only reason why people buy 3DS over Wii U, price and game selection also are major factors and Wii U is about twice the price with a fraction of the amount of games.
When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.
