Has the mainstream videogame media been too harsh on Nintendo?

Destructoid writes: "If you were to take a look around the World Wide Web, one of the most talked about highlights now isn't the coup that Microsoft sucker punched Sony regarding Final Fantasy XIII, instead it's this topic: Nintendo and Miyamoto have left us hardcore gamers down.

Was that an article or a just a rant?

Chill out pal. What are you so insecure about?
These are the sort of rants you get in N4G comments. A little journalistic / writer's integrity wouldn't go amiss. And perhaps some objectivity too.
