    After listening to #80 I am thinking about Nintendo's next console. With the Wii they were not trying to compete w/xbox or ps3 b/c they were going after casual, kids, an moms. They ended up being a competitor to xbox or ps3 b/c parents felt like they already had a game system in the wii so they weren't going to buy a second one.

    This coming generation w/kinect, xbox has a real opportunity to steal console sales f/nintendo. Given that the wii u isn't that different f/the wii, nor smart glass, I'd expect MS to push the home media hub and kinect aspect even harder this generation to be the value add.

    To try this a second time: Do you think that Nintendo is kind of done for this coming generation since Microsoft has better motion control in Kinect -and- has home media hub going for it?

    Second question: If Microsoft is the incumbent going into this coming round of consoles, how will they miss the mark / mess it up for themselves by resting on their laurels? (look at how bad Windows Vista was after Windows XP)

    I don't think Nintendo is done, Wii U has me interested. Only problem for me though is that I hate motion controlled games, so I won't be buying one most likely. I see Wii U having the same problem as the Wii, third party support will churn out casual(crap) games and Nintendo will be the only one trying to make quality games for it. Third party publishers will most likely be converting their next gen titles instead of building them from the ground up. After seeing the controller in action on a zombie game they demoed, I have to say that it will be awesome to see what developers end doing with the potential it has. And one thing that we all have to remember, Nintendo has always said that their first priority is gaming, not all the other things that MS & Sony are tyring to do.

    As far as what MS is going to do to botch the next console release, I can't wait to see what they have in store. Maybe they'll think about using a liquid nitrogen cooling system with inadequate piping that will cause the unit to explode. Maybe they'll ring back the RROD but it will be a countdown that will act like a nailbomb to stop people from calling in their consoles by killing them so they can keep the issue under wraps. Can't wait to see what they think was "supposed" to be a good cost cutting measure.

    Thank you guys for the topic ideas. We actually used a couple in our recording of the show last night.

    Unfortunately, for reasons that aren't quite clear (except that I'm still trying to record with a decade-old computer), despite the fact that Powergramo told me it had recorded the hour-and-45-minute conference call (don't panic; most of that time we were test-driving some new technology -- the actual show was closer to a mere 30 minutes), only four and a half minutes of actual audio was recorded. So yeah, podcast fail, no show this week.

    That's really not an issue; no one listens to us, either.
