NERDS ONLY: Why the Nintendo Revolution is secretly going to return Nintendo to the realm of the hard-core gamer.

It is a spurious argument, perhaps, but an appealing one. It did not always used to be the case that normal people had a PS2 and 12-year-old monster-trading boys had a Gamecube. Nintendo used to rock for all ages.

It really is amazing that nobody else stopped to think, Hey, we’re making a brand new game console… maybe we should change the controller. Funny how some assumptions are just sooo deep.
