There are millions of people who do not pay for XBL. For those people, things like a HDD, wi-fi and, most likely, some HD disc format are useless.
Do not base your argument on a format war that was decided last January.

Good episode and I loved the pirate talk. I was laughing out loud in the street.
Kelly, it's "arggh" not "arrrr." You have to add a "g" in there.

I really hate commenting on my own posts but I guess it's necessary.
While you're certainly entitled to your opinion, I cannot believe that, unless you some how suckle at the tit of the new Nintendo, you believe that Nintendo has grown up along with the same fans that, like myself, owned the system when we were younger. Instead of growing up with the audience, they grew more and more out of touch, as was seen with diminishing sales with the N64 and Gamecube, and simply hit the restart button in the hopes of saving their company. They hit the much needed homerun but not with the same gamers as before but with a new mainstream audience.
Nintendo now has almost unprecedented power in a space with multiple, prominent consoles and that power comes from housewives, the elderly, the very young and others who would not identify themselves as gamers. They have now decided to keep that momentum going.
I certainly cannot, from a business point of view, blame them but they are not, in any way, serving the fans that stuck by them during some pretty lean times in the late 90s and early 00s. They have left them behind and I believe it's time that the nostalgia driven defense of Nintendo stop and gamers and the enthusiast press alike be more realistic and honest when dealing with Nintendo.
Also, of course this is my opinion and I assume that not everyone would agree.
