a $20 price point doesn't excuse shit quality.
No, but you forget a thing called PATENTS.
Say Nintendo does everything you want. What happens next?
MICROSOFT, SONY, etc. WOULD SUE NINTENDO FOR INFRINGEMENT.
"But Nintendo could..." Stop. Stop. Stop. Nintendo could get patent licenses, sure, BUT THEN THE 20 DOLLARS NINTENDO ASKS BECOMES 100 DOLLARS AS NIN CAN'T EAT THE COSTS ALONE.
You can't get everything you want in life and demanding Nintendo bend over to cater to you IS NOT FEASIBLE. If you want shit to change, get patent laws, get copyright laws, and get trademark laws changed in the US Congress. Otherwise you're just asking Nintendo to bankrupt itself trying to be Xbox Live 2 or PSN 2.
"But Sony and Microsoft wouldn't..." They would sue at a drop of a hat because infringement is treated as a serious crime in America. You can pay more for infringements than you do from beating up a guy on a street.
