I don't think this article gets nintendo.
They like to keep costs down. They made way more money on the Wii then the games made for it. IE they used last gen technology. They do this because they don't want a high manufacturing price. I think it backfired with the wii. They made a bunch of money when it was new and novel. Then the novelty wore off and it turned out it was pretty obscelete. So the hardcore gamers wouldn't touch it. So no game sales.
I think they'll do that again. I don't think they want to release a 500-600 dollar console. Nintendo's console will be old gen tech again. PS3 and 720 will be eons better.
