Nintendo has it right. Cloud gaming at this time is a stupid idea and not surprising that a company like Sony is pushing that. Sony with their fail GUI on the PS3, their fail handheld gaming device that can't play Madden 13 without it looking like a slideshow and on and on and on. Sony better soon stop failing or they will be right out of the game.
@DeViLzzz You're an idiot. Their PS3 and Vita are the best consoles on the market right now, Nintendo's stuff is "fail." The Wii U is a failure, the 3DS is a disgustingly mediocre little failure, the Wii died on the market in mid-2010 because it was so weak people stopped caring about it.
Cloud gaming is a great idea, the only reason Iwata claims otherwise is because Nintendo hasn't invested in the technology and they're screwed because the competition has. Onlive's worked perfectly for years, I'm sure Gaikai will do the same thing. It's gonna be fun enjoying my PS4 games through remote play on my Vita while I'm on a break at work or whatever. Same with PS3 games in the future, of course. Nintendo could only dream of this kind of functionality, so of course they'd bash it like the idiots they are.
Iwata and Fils-Aime are the reasons Nintendo went down the drain over the past decade. They genuinely don't care about hardware quality, they haven't come up with any truly new gaming experiences in over a decade(Pikmin launched in 2001, you know), they milk their franchises worse than anyone else in the industry by far, their online infrastructure's a total joke and their third-party support will continue to be the worst in the industry. I was a Nintendo gamer most of my life, starting with the SNES and Gameboy Color all the way until the disappointing Wii and 3DS. The Wii U is a continuation of Nintendo's modern mediocrity, and seeing idiotic fanboys like you defend Nintendo's incompetence is sickening. People like you, who coddle Nintendo, who enable their stupidity, are the reason Nintendo sucks right now. You should be ashamed of yourself.
I cannot wait until Nintendo drops out of the hardware market. They lost the right to produce hardware when Reggie Fils-Aime obnoxiously proclaimed that hardware doesn't matter when announcing the DS.
@Facelord You are the idiot if you think the 3DS is a failure. It is the first handheld 3D device that you don't need glasses for. It played perfectly when I used it and the camera was fun to use too. It also is a portable 3D device. Come back and comment when you are not talking stupid. No way is the PS Vita a better offering. LOL
