(Where the fuck was Starfox this gen?)

You're getting a current-3DS-gen one... a remake.

You say that like it's a bad thing. I can't wait to play Starfox 64 again, especially on a handheld.

A controller w/ an HD screen?

The article does not specify if the new system features motion controls like the Wii. However, the source did say that the new console is completely backwards compatible with Wii, so we can probably assume that motion control will be included

Why do I feel like this will have 3D written somewhere?

I can't find it, but I recall Nintendo saying their next console will not involve 3D. They did try adding 3D a long time ago to a build of Mario Kart Wii.

I lied. I did find it.

I'm skeptical in the remake department.  Kudos to nostalgia, and it is a great title, but is it that hard to make new levels?

Unless Persona 5 is announced for it I'll be passing on this one for a while. Even if Skyward Sword is a launch title you'll still be able to buy it 3 years later. Since Zelda is really the only reason I own a Nintendo home console in the first place I'm not worried that I wont get to play it.

I never got a Wii so I guess I'll just wait for this since it's supposed to be backwards compatible.  Of course, the reason I never got a Wii is because it doesn't have any games that I care about...we'll see how they do this round.

Persona 5 for a Nintendo console you say? I don't see that happening.

In fact, I can see a lot of people getting annoyed by the fact that they have to buy another console to enjoy a game that they have been waiting for a long time for their Xbox 360 or PS3.

If you don't think Mario Galaxy is a fun game then I question your gamerness

I'm saying that's the only thing that would get me to get it right away. Not saying it would ever happen.

I like Mario Galaxy, but not enough for a game like it to justify a purchase of a new console.

starfox 64 with 3d tacked on is not a remake.

I never said it did, but to say there's no games worthy of interest is just silly

I've played it at a friend's place.  It's a fine distraction if you just want to kill some time, but a game I would go out of my way to play?  Meh.

There are plenty of great games on the Wii I wont deny that, but with the economy the way it I don't see myself buying nintendo's new console right away cause my Wii has barely been touched in over a year mainly cause I couldn't afford to buy the games I wanted for the Wii and the other games I wanted (more) as well. As a matter of fact my PS3 and XBOX 360 haven't seen much use lately either. I've been mainly playing PSP and PS2 games lately. I will however be picking a 3DS when I can if it's library is anything like the DS's I can see myself spending a lot of time with it.
