Nintendo is all about making something cheap and easy and selling it for more. Wii any one?

I think their handhelds are evolving but with all those versions of the gameboy as well as the two DS versions (with a third probably on the horizon) that would definitely fit under the 'highway robbery' category.

Consumers need to smarten up and stop making Nintendo so rich because they are not giving back as much as they're taking in.
