having no issues with controller whatsoever, people are just trying to bitch about anything they can to get page hits cause Nintendo PR, for better or worse, sells. Dan Hsu had a nice interview back when the 360 launched bashing the system for its ports and lack of games (he came off a little rude in the interview) and got lots of page hits in return. Just a tried and true formula for many in the interwebz to try and sound relevant. for myself, after loading up the update (50 min to download and install) and cruising through the menus, most of the things people are complaining about are EXTREMELY minor (there are some freeze ups reported but i haven't had any problems) and are things that i'm sure will get cleaned up with upcoming patches. if you're on the fence, wait a year, thats the best advice to see whether a console will take off or fall on its face after launch (Vita). no one really knows how things will turn out, but if history is any indicator, Nintendo will prove it has a rightful place among consoles and in people's homes.
