'On a Path to Irrelevance': Atari founding father Nolan Bushnell, who knows a thing or two about failed consoles, thinks Nintendo is pinched. The hardware it does well—handheld gaming-only devices—"don't make sense" compared to tablets or mobile phones. And he thinks the Wii U's target audience is limited.
Can a tablet provide hours of meaningful game time and not cheap "fun" like most game apps? Can I get a story like Fire Emblem or a slick platformer like Mighty Switch Force, or a life sim like Animal Crossing on a tablet? No? Then fuck tablets. They're handy but until they reach the power and control-ability of a 3DS or Vita then there will always be room for handheld gaming devices.
