      Seeing how bad this presentation was, and how thin the launch titles are... WOW, remember that they actually delayed the launch from Holiday to March? YIKES.

      I get that the investors probably pretty much forced Nintendo's hand here. This system just isn't ready to launch. This almost... almost feels like the Saturn launch.

      I'm still tempted to preorder given that Nintendo and the Switch should get there. Eventually. But, maybe it's worth it to wait for the first round of hardware revisions to work out any kinks that might turn up, and certainly wait for more must-have titles.

      Most of the Nintendo heads are old farts. No wonder they can't design anything that's appealing to me.
