Nintendo to me now is like a girl who knows how to have sex in 1001 positions (Innovative) but that girl looks like ass (no HD/no core games) so nobody wants to do her in the first place.
I give credit where it's due. Nintendo is innovative. The Wii-mote is innovative. And I'm sure the WiiU is innovative too. But you can't survive on innovative alone
I bet some of the grannies who bought the Wii due to the hype, and as they lie on their deathbed, they'd say that buying a Wii was their biggest regret.
