I previewed the console a few weeks ago, and I have to say I think this review is spot on. My reaction to the 3D was certainly along the lines of "wow" followed by "meh", with some games (Pro Evo for example) utilising it well and usefully, with others, specifically racers, being rather unsuited to it as the effect was all too easy to distort. As well as the issue of developers using the gimmicky 3D effectively, Nintendo are going to have a hard time competing in the portable games market since they have outright refused to adopt any kind of lower pricing model, opting for quality over quantity. Higher price does not equal higher quality though, as the countless number of shovelware titles on Wii in particular illustrates. This console is going to need a number of exciting killer apps if it's to succeed beyond it's initial launch.
