You know, history isn't always doomed to repeat itself.... or is it?

One thing I am curious about is whether the analog stick can be used for original DS games, would love to play SM64 DS with it.

We should start a thread about all the questioned that weren't asked or never answered so NWR can use some of those industry contact and get us some answers.

Was the focus group composed of Ken Kutaragi and Kaz Hirai?

I have plenty of those in mind.

I agree with the question GP asked. I bet the answer is no, but I hope I am wrong.

Just to be clear I wasn't saying Nintendo rushing the 3DS is a completely bad thing. Yes it sucks that certain features and games won't be there at launch, but overall it's better for everyone that Nintendo gets a strong foothold before competing devices come out. If Apple were to release an autosterescopic iPhone before the 3DS (or even announce it) how much incentive would there be for content providers to sign up for the 3DS? It also matters for games as the next iPhone will have comparable power/graphics to the 3DS regardless of the 3D aspect, and the trend in gaming right now is for phones. Nintendo needed to get the 3DS out the door as soon as possible. What they need to do next is make the case for having two devices.
Silly monkeys; give them thumbs they make a club and beat their brother down. How they survive so misguided is a mystery. Repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability to lift an a eye to heaven conscious of his fleeting time here.

That is what I'm thinking, but I was hoping at the very least it would work like the d-pad controls in games. Not even close to being true analog control but beats using the control pad.

When the DS came out it was clearly rushed.  I mean the only first party launch title was a port of an N64 game!  Come on!  I figured it would bite them in the ass.

It didn't and this won't either.  It's clear that for a product like this there is always a group of early adopters that will carry it for the first little while.  Eventually things have to shape up to get everyone else on board, but you really don't need a strong launch.

Or at least you don't if you already have a strong brand people are interested in.  I think a newcomer or a follow-up to a less successful product needs a stronger launch.  The PSP2 will need a strong launch.  The Gamecube is an example of a console that needed to make a much stronger first impression than it did.

Everyone loves the GBA and thus wants to love to the DS.  The DS gets away with blatantly coasting for the first little while.  The N64 is not particularly popular so people need to be given a reason to care about or even notice the Gamecube.  The Cube makes a weak first impression, fails to win the doubters over, and never really goes anywhere.

Of course the key is that you do deliver in time.  The N64 started out okay with a really awesome killer app at launch but it failed to maintain any momentum.

One the of the RFN members alluded to this and I am inclined to agree that Nintendo should not be offering N64 games that are over a decade old as full-on retail titles with the little bit of work they have clearly put into upgrading it. It would have made sense to put Gamecube titles like Wind Waker and Luigi's Mansion as tempoaray launch titiles and I would have bought them right away since I have never played them at all.

Do I hear $300?

- Japan for $300.

Do I hear $305?  310? 315?

- United Kingdom for $364.

3DS is not expensive enough in the United States.  It probably means we're getting the lesser quality version, and the superior Old World inhabitants are getting better online functions like streaming 3D pornography.

3DS Spot A** technology is not something you can put a price tag on.
