I always have a problem with systems that want to be more than what they are supposed to be in the first place. For me it's always been about the titles...games I've come to love overtime, zelda, mario, metroid, etc. So nintendo forever for me.
I'm building a $3k pc early next year with the latest dx10 nvidia cards that are out around that time, and the other good stuff from everyone else. I don't need a $600 console to get awesome graphics. My PC has served that role for over 6 years and will continue to do so.
When it comes to the format, B-R is not the winner of the format war yet, so why even bother at this point in time.
I have an LCD TV that supports up to 1080p, and I would love to play games at that resolution on the wii for example, imagine the beauty one could find in a zelda game that supports it...but nintendo is not there yet...when they do get there, and eventually they will ( cause as we all know HD is just getting stronger ) I'll be right there to grab that console.
