Wii Nope. Nintendo needs to get back on track and make games that we want to play, rather than gimmicks.

Nintendo used to make solid consoles and games, while other people sold accessories and add-ons. Now they start their platform with a gimmick add on that no one wants to develop for.

A real revolution in consoles would be to provide an API to the public and let people develop games for the console on a market. Provide a toy-gamedev platform so that anyone could make a game and put it on.

People are talking about this idea, nintendo could do it, but they just want to make bucks on reselling Super Mario Bros on hardware from 5 years ago.

Na I didn't get one, not really interested in it either at the moment. Too pricey, controller dies in 3 hours (And needs its own power brick), and there's not many games on it I see worth playing so far.

@Geo - How about an Ouya? I actually contributed to that kickstarter, pretty stoked to have a shot at writing a game on it.

I'm interested in the Ouya, but very skeptical. The hardware looks to be barely acceptable for the android OS from performance I've seen on phones/tablets.

Also, every hardware project on kickstarter that I've been interested in has failed to deliver.
