Generally speaking, I like the fact that Nintendo is trying to experiment in order to create something "different" as they already tried to do in the
past. Sure, they released lot of failed products (the Power Glove, Virtual Boy and so on) but at least they definitely stand in a different way from the competitors, which is a good thing to me.
What I also like is the fact that most of their devices have a good backward compatibility, which is a plus, taking into account that their games are not based on killer graphics and stuff, so they look "still nice to play" after years also for NON retrograming people. I bought a DS lite when it came out
and I was super-happy about it, also because it was easy to hack (I wrote
some test games and homebrew things on it).
BUT since the 3Ds came out, I have stopped caring about their machines,
because most of the game catalogue has been composed by titles for kids. I mean.. it's ok to play some typical Mario stuff but I want something
different also, which isn't zelda :)
The Switch seems promising, but also the WiiU was. I'll go for the "1year
wait" strategy and see what will happen. If I will see a decent number of interesting titles, and if the console will be someway hackable (I mean, that one can run homebrew code on it) maybe I'll buy one.
