I’ll just leave this here:
> [Microsoft and Nintendo] are starting to run out of steam now in terms of continuing to be relevant in 2011 and beyond. I mean, you’ve gotta be kidding me. Why would I buy a gaming system without a hard drive in it? How does this thing scale? Motion gaming is cute, but if I can only wave my arms six inches, how does this really feel like I’m doing true accurate motion gaming? Our view of the ‘Game Boy experience’ is that it’s a great babysitting tool, (but) no self-respecting 20-something is going to be sitting on an airplane with one of those. He’s too old for that.
This pearl of wisdom comes from Jack Tretton, the CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment. According to him, anyone who is twenty years or older and plays a Nintendo DS or 3DS has no self respect. So I hate myself based on this logic, because I spent a fair amount of time playing my 3DS on the flight back from Japan.
