No, you didn't get my point right, but I don't blame you. I suppose you don't sympathize with game makers, and just go along with the people behind the platforms instead. To me, having a new platform released is a multiway burden, on customers, makers and the ones selling / shipping them. How in our age and day can we AFFORD to have more sources of distraction, while job opportunities are at an all time low? This also makes game devs suffer more headaches should they want to make for the new platform, because it's cramming more programming language into the cranium time.
The problem with Nintendo is far worse however. You can ALWAYS see the franchises still standing there, like what would happen if Capcom has its own console and every exclusives it has is Street Fighter and others. For what reason should we keep on following Nintendo's footsteps, with our money? Sony and Microsoft's consoles could have a durable list of releases, if not for Nintendo running out of ideas for their OWN franchises. They just don't care and want people to cope with new ways to press new buttons, look at new screens, while all they do is just making physical excuses to cover their lack of competitive ability.
The point is that Nintendo should stop being a pussy, not the other two stop staying alive.
Just how new is it? I'm not going to buy it just for new Mario Metroid Zelda whatever. Just to entertain your strawman of me, I'm going for the record and state that ONE reason I don't keep with Nintendo is that I don't find their franchises that appealing to me.
