They could have easily pulled ahead in the console war, but taking a year off from releasing anything of worth on your new next gen console is just stupid Nintendo. If they didn't have any games ready, they shouldn't have launched the console. Instead, people are upset with Nintendo because they bought a console that just doesn't have anything to play on it. I imagine Nintendo's defense is something like "You can still play Wii games on it" and that ticks me off. You have to go into an entirely different menu that looks identical to the original Wii, no upscaling or anything. I didn't pay $350 to play Wii games
