I've been wanting to write this post for a while, and with the Wii-U only 2 weeks away, now seemed like the perfect time. I think Nintendo is a fairly misunderstood company - people act as though their decisions are illogical or foolish, but actually they make perfect sense as long as you look at them within a certain context. In this post I briefly (relatively) go over Nintendo's history, offer some analysis of their console strategy, and make some unfortunately dire predictions regarding the Wii-U.
It's a bit long, but I think you'll find it to be interesting (well, I certainly hope you do!).
