Once again, Nintendo is one big step behind. Note how the GameCube uses the mini-CDs and therefore cannot play DVDs? You figure that Nintendo would've noticed something like that.

I have to admit, as a Nintendo apologist, that this move baffles me. I mean, they've been quick to denounce basically every innovation in console gaming for years now, but they've generally been able to back it up with quality games. However, recently, 3rd party developers are starting to make games that exceed Nintendo 1st party games in quality and are doing so on technically superior platforms. I don't think Nintendo is going to survive this next round of consoles. I think they should do what Sega did and go software-only. Their business model simply cannot compete in today's video game market.

Gamecube never had HD support. It had ED (480p) support. Revolution not supporting HD means not supporting 720p/1080i/1080p (essentially forcing widescreen).

Yeah it is a very stupid move on their part... even worse is if you look at gamefaqs.com... they have a poll and you can see how bad the Nintendo fanboyism is over there :\.

Yes, it's rediculous how many people actually think it's a GOOD thing. But the amazing thing is, even though that place is overrun by Nintendo fans (2 years ago they had a poll for which system had the best online plan, and Gamecube came in ahead of Xbox!), the number of people that don't think it's a good thing far outweigh those who agree with Nintendo on it:

Sheer madness, HDTV is the future. 10.1%
Bad idea, Nintendo's aiming for third 19.8%
Not good, but it won't kill them 31%
It's fine, HDTV is overrated 33.64%
It's great, and will be a better system 5.45%

Can someone explain to me how Nintendo as a company is still in business? How can people actually think that Nintendo has been making the right decisions in the past 10 years? From first class to dead last... my how the mighty has fallen!

My only guess would be that they have a grasp on a lot of people with their first party games... they used to have a grasp on me and I still anticipate the new Zelda... but I have given up on Nintendo for a while now... all of the sequels to their games are almost exact copies of each other and they don't innovate at all. They are far behind the times and it seems they don't care enough to even attempt to catch up.

I have said it before and I will say it again... Nintendo should just sell off its IPs... I would LOVE to see what some thirdparty developer (not EA) could do with Zelda or Metroid.

Anyone who says HDTV is overrated hasn't seen HDTV. I guess DVD must be overrated too, considering it has only 1/4 the resolution of HDTV.

Truth. Just watch a nice Discovery HD show, like an underwater exploration or something, then tell me HD is not Sliced Bread 2.

The difference is astounding. The clarity of the picture is nothing short of edible.

I'm surprised that their first party games have carried them this far. I personally think that the GameCube was a huge disappointment because they made a huge mistake of not have DVD format. I know a lot of people that use their XBOX or PS2 just for a DVD Player. And now that the Revolution doesnt support HDTV, they are slowly but surely going downhill IMO.
