    No thanks, Nintendo is only good for Zelda and I'm not playing Zelda on a handheld split screen.

    From what I've read, you can also play it on your TV.

    I just don't know much about it past that.

    Meh, I haven't seen much of it and don't have much interest. They're going to pump out Zelda and Mario as usual so if they're into that, you may as well get it.

    Pretty sure you can but there's still a screen on the controller.. distracting as hell. I don't like that stuff nor motion control.

    I'm on the same boat but I haven't used it to really give an accurate answer. It isn't appealing though.

    Will be by far the worst system of the new generation. But will be a huge hit with kids.

    I'd bet your kids would love it.

    They better love it, I just over paid damn near $100 for this thing.

    But them being happy Christmas morning is worth every penny.

    Here's a tip for dads out there; DON'T watch TV with your kids. Every commercial that comes on I hear "I want that".
