apparently you misunderstood me (or, most likely, i should have been more clear). i was poking fun at how pathetic it was that they are openly copying microsoft / sony BECAUSE they have always been innovators, not because i think they usually
copy people. i love Nintendo, pre Wii. i've owned everything they've made, pre Wii. my favorite games of all time are games i played on Nintendo systems.
i was mocking this one instance of thievery, not their entire existence.
i'll gladly be the Ninetendo foil on this site, however. the Wii U looks ****ing retarded.
