When they introduced the tablet controller , it became inaccessible, it was complicated , it wasn't simple like the Wiimote. They basically alienated the casual fans and only had the hardcore fan base left to purchase (the casual consumer didn't even know it was separate console).


Nintendo NX is most likely going …
