From the article:
"It’s hard to find a gamer who doesn’t have some connection to the games they’ve produced. But when Nintendo pulled the rug out from under my feet a few days ago, my feelings towards the company remarkably changed. When the 3DS was first announced, I was pretty excited. Not because of the 3D, but because it was going to be a more powerful DS that would finally replace my DS Lite and give me access to experiences like Shantae: Risky’s Revenge. My hand was already reaching for the wallet after watching Nintendo’s 2010 E3 press conference.
Let’s fast-forward to the 3DS press conference earlier this year. Not only did Nintendo believe it would be a great idea to charge the same price as a Wii for their new 3D handheld, but they also put the system out with an incredibly weak launch lineup and none of its promised online features."
