Nintendo was Right: Microsoft Agrees

In typical fashion, Microsoft plans on taking over the world - now they're going to attack the "Casual Market" and focus on "peripheral based" gaming. Of course, in doing so they are validating Nintendo on every level possible:

  1. Casual Gamers matter (I've explained exactly what those are, unlike everyone else who doesn't have a clue yet pretends to).
  2. Motion Sensative Controllers and Pointing Devices trump dicking around with your thumbs using Gamepads.
  3. Price matters.
Actually, we've yet to see if Microsoft can do anything about #3, as their Xbox 360 can't get much cheaper.
