    Lets look at the facts. Unless you A)live with your parents or B)Have a high paying job chances are you don't or arent planning to having a HD-TV. If you are you are gonna slap down $800 for a cheap one upwards to $5,000 for a top of the line HD-TV. Lets see if we wanna take advantage of all of its swell audio channels and perfect audio shit you better get an alright sound system. For a Bose - Series II 2.1-Ch. DVD Home Theater System its at least $899 and ITS ONLY 2.1 CHANNEL!! $4,999 for a 6.1 system. A 100 watt sub prolly wouldnt do xbox 360 justice and I only found a JBL - 6.1-Channel Home Theater Speaker System w/150W Subwoofer which is 600 bucks then 400 dollars for a xbox 360. Thats kinda alot of money to spend on playing a video game. I dont think many people have the money to take advantage of xbox 360 or the upcoming ps3. Nintendo was smart and instead of trying to make it(the games) look good for the 1/10 people who have the money to see differences in HD they focused on raw gameplay. Experts also say microsoft is losing 135 each FAULTY ( any of ya here about the hardrive over heats and disc scratching )xbox 360 and Sony will lose 400 million dollars a year if they sell it for just as much as xbox 360 ( people prolly wont by it for more ), just so they could say "HEY, well my system does this" when in 5 years it wont matter anyways cuz everything will just look the same cuz of graphic power. You can only get so good in that way of gaming. Nintendo will rule this time around because it will give you fun ways to play the same kinda games and new kinds with the new controllers possibilities with better graphics ( better than that of xbox 360 using standerd tv's) using a Dual Layered DVD ( because xbox 360 had to make it HD on one HD-DVD and by the way are having a terrible time..Oblivion = 4 HD - DVD's )By the way Nintendo didn't go online with much of anything because nothing else was really online and they didnt see it as a threat. OH and its gonna be free online gaming for Revolution. How much is it again for Xbox 360?¿

    The facts are that most people are going to buy which system they choose whether or not they have a HD TV or nice sound system in their homes. Chances of nintendo ruling this next gen are slim to none.

    The reason REV wont "rule" the next gen is because it (NINTENDO) made a reputaion of itself as a console targeting (90%) kids and like 10% teanagers and adults. PS3 and 360 on the other hand have wide ranges of games rating from E-AO and most of PS and XBOX games are usually T-M, unlike NINTENDO games, 99% are rated E. People want to have fun and play different types of games, not 6-10 stupid MArio party games

    looks like you hit the nail on the head with that one. Nintendo screwed itself in the past by trying to please idiotic parents of younger gamers by trying to keep their games clean for the younger gamers. They have made attempts at trying to undo that damage with games like resident evil for the gamecube but they lost a lot of supporters. Gamers that like more mature games like GTA are avaliable on the xbox/ps2. Socum, call of duty, and plenty of others are probably played by everyone but appeal more to games my age, 26. Most 8 year old enjoy diff gaming experiences. Last time i check the average gamer for the ps2 was 25. while trying to satisfy those parents out there who need to take responsibility of what their kids play themeselves and stop putting the blame on others, Nintendo shot themeselves in the foot and hurt their sales instead of helping them.
