The next year or two will be Nintendo's true test if they can stay in the console business. I think consoles as we know it will change (or go away) anyways after the next-gen.
Agree. The whole motion thing is a bust (though it was actually good for Tiger Woods!) and it's difficult for me to see Nintendo surviving in this space on the strength of their own games. Still, I hope they make some smart moves to help them get through it.
