The rebuild certainly isn't yet drawing me back in, for personal testimony.

Honestly I haven't been around here much in 3 years but I was surprised to see Unions go. They were the central part of my experience here 3 years ago. They weren't the public face of the website, but they were its heart and soul, to me. And they were the place for communities not solely based around gaming.

Were they really so rarely used as to be tossed?
Additionally I've seen commenting rates on most blogs I followed that had dozens of comments pre-revision drop MASSIVELY to one or two comments per blog if that. This must be due to lack of a "Friends' Blogs" RSS style feed as used to be in place.

Well, in the only really relevant example, 3DS hardware is currently sold at a profit for Nintendo.

Well, you'd be wrong there historically. But in this case I don't know.
And yes they could lose money, but I'm kind of just thinking to myself that I could indeed see some 6 year old holding something that looks like this. And it's not like they'd manufacture millions, I severely doubt that.

@sonichunter99 @itsTolkien_time Because they can and probably will make some money on it.

There may be children out there attracted to the cheap tablet style. I certainly don't know. Do you?

If you wanted a folding 3D handheld, the great news is there is one out there for you! It's called the 3DS, and it's only $40 more if you buy it full price. This new device isn't for you. Can nobody see that? Nintendo doesn't want or expect most people like you and me who frequent gaming sites to buy this device. But oh, we'll complain about it anyway, because clearly we dedicated gamers are the only people who deserve to be catered to in this market.

Classic shoddy journalism, Gamespot. Thanks for wasting everyone's time for the sake of page views.
Ellen's statement was inoffensive, non-aggressive, and warranted by the context in the Reddit AMA.

There's so much to look forward to. :) Really, though, I'll be looking for announcements on Move/Natal games, and about the 3DS. Because I'm still quite unsure about how any of these things will work to advance the companies. I'm basically expecting some generic party games for the motion controllers, but I always look to be surprised!

Wow. Did anyone read the news story? It's a DS successor, not a DS. Although I think the timing is odd. I'm looking forward to e3 and more info, is all I can decide.
