That said, I haven't quite disregarded Wii in the same way that many of my peers have. In fact, the occasional release in the system still gets me excited enough to put down that pre-order, despite the obviously beneficial connections that being the editor of Electronic Theatre brings. However, a very clear symptom of either the change in my taste, or perhaps the videogame industry's perception of my taste, is that for the first time in nearly twenty years I did not purchase the latest Nintendo console within the first month of release. Nor the second, third or fourth. In fact, after nearly five months on UK retail shelves, I still haven't purchased a Nintendo DSi.
