I not wish to sound like a white knight or anything for the company, but I'm a bit annoyed when I hear many gamer ranting on this as if their trying to force this on us. Reggie even said it hiself, this ain't for use, this is for the kids under the age 7 or 8.
But if you want to buy one, I'm not knocking you, just keep in mind, there aiming this toward kids. Presonally, I would had kept the clam shell design, but I guess not much kids will care for it.
EDIT: I'm not saying Nintendo games are only for kids, I'm saying their are kids out there who are under the age of seven that play these games and this could be a failure to, only the future can tell.
“Don’t follow the hype, follow the games”
