That says it all, really. I wouldn't be surprised if Bush personally hand-picked him for the position based on their "mutual qualities".
Wii sensor bar. I saw those homebrew head tracking videos when they first came out and I can’t believe that still no major manufacturer has followed up on this. It seems like the head tracking effect would work wonders for on-rails shooters - having to duck and weave IRL to dodge virtual projectiles “bullet time” style.
Looks like a solid update. A high density display and better optics will address the two main shortfalls of the current model. Presumably Siri is also on board. These will be enough to convince many to upgrade.
I feel the Kinect is crippled by too much latency to be useful. At the moment it works for dancing games that can disguise the delay between your movements and the position being registered. But for real time action games it's pants. USB 3 or thunderbolt kinect could improve data throughput and latency for finer and more responsive control.
Dear Google, The paradigm has shifted. The cat and mouse game is no longer best practice. Stay your course and you will be left behind. Sincerely, Me
Admitedly the last two graphs above were an "awkward" period for Nintendo with a series of lukewarm product launches and almost zero first party software for an ailing home console. It's probably a lot to do with install base and the large number of casual gamers Nintendo courted with the wii and DS lite that no longer see the value now that there are free or 99c apps on a iOS device they probably own anyway.
I'm sure Apple will become very interested in selling us on the benefits of music formats with larger file sizes when they want us to upgrade from 1TB SSD iPhones and Macbook Airs to 10TB SSD iPhones and MacBook Airs.
I think iOS is going from strength to strength. The people I’ve spoken to who prefer android tend to fall into 2 categories: those who enjoy spending hours tinkering with code and customising their devices and those who are happy with 60% of the iPhone experience for 60% of the price. iOS + curated App Store has solved so many fundamental problems that other tech companies have long relegated to the “too hard” basket–identity theft, malicious code, software compatibility...
I think consumers would be more interested if it had a dedicated Game (App) Store for HDTVs, slightly roomier internal storage (16-32GB) to better support app storage and supported a standard Apple-branded console-quality controller out of the box (even though that would mean a higher price). It doesn’t need to be as gaudy at an Xbox/Playstation controller. Just something more tactile than a multi-touch glass surface.
