    The big boss of Nintendo has shrugged off any potential threat from the iPad by claiming that it delivers no surprises and is essentially just a bigger iPod Touch.

    <blockquote>Nintendo's president shrugged off the just unveiled iPad tablet computer from Apple as delivering "no surprises," and displayed as little enthusiasm for 3-D technology and high-definition upgrades for games.

    "It was a bigger iPod Touch," Satoru Iwata said of the much anticipated device shown Wednesday by Apple Inc. CEO Steve Jobs.

    Iwata denied speculation in Japanese media that what Nintendo Co. has in the works in new gadgets may be a DS equipped with a motion-sensor similar to the wand for Nintendo's hit Wii home console, or a Wii upgraded for high-definition TVs.

    "I question whether those features would be enough to get people to buy new machines," he said of the DS. Nintendo engineers are developing new machines, he said, without giving details.</blockquote>

      I guess they were right, since they have already won this gen of console.

      I'd rather they be honest with the resolution that their consoles can do unlike Sony who promised all games in 1080p.


      At least the Wii has USB ports, unlike the iPad with requires more dongles than KFC has spices.

      The difference is the DSi XL, LL, whatever is advertized as the same product,
      only bigger and only as a gaming device. Nothing new.

      The iPAD is being touted as something revolutionary, NEW, exciting, etc etc.
      I mean, c'mon, it's ALL OVER THE NEWS.

      There's a big difference here.
