but it seem sto me now they are aiming for a childs market, if you look at the ds games they do seem theyre made for kids, but hopefully as you say they will pull their finger out and make good shooting and sword fighting games that dont go to the back of my shelves with the more recent games

Now although Gamecube could have had a better lineup, Nintendo doesn't go by anybodies standards. Nintendo sets it's own standards goes by them, and if you don't like them then they don't really care. It's how they've been operating for years, doing their own little thing. And to be honest, I like what they're doing.

To be fair the DS was never designed to match the PSP in raw power. They already have another hand held system in the works for that. They better hope they dont lose control of the hand held markey since that is what kept them for going the way of Sega after the failure that was Game cube in this round of the console wars.
The revolution I dont know its not going to even come close to the raw power of PS3 or XBOX360. The fact that they are going to let you download any NES,SNES,N64 or Gamecude game on it is a good move (I might get one just for that reason). But I think there real strategy is going to be putting it out at a far lower price then the other two.
The Revolution controller man thats a gamble but I wont pass a verdict until I use it. But first impression is pretty bad looks like a TV remote and a NES controller had a unholy baby.
Nintendo better get their butts in gear or they are heading the way of SEGA. Mario and Zelda wont keep them afloat for ever.
And Revolution is going to bring something new to the stagnant game pool and at an affordable price. Microsoft and Sony selling consoles at a premium price while offering little beyond what current generation consoles provide beyond gussied-up visuals. It's not the same as the advent of 3D where power brought new gaming experiences -- we've reached sandbox gaming, there's nowhere power can take us.

And Nintendo is going nowhere. Nintendo was the only company making money in the previous generation and has billions in profits stored away.
