    With up to par graphics and a normal controller. Focus on bringing good first party titles to the system on release. Bring luigis mansion zelda all that good shit for the console and make handheld versions of the games instead. Why is twilight princess remake on wii u and not n3ds?Cuz the system is too weak.Come on nintendo I remember being 3 years old getting an n64 for christmas whats happening now? Im 21 and have bought ALL your consoles since(not counting rehashes like dsi).

    Well most businesses do not go into projects wanting them to be a failure for a start.

    N64 wasn't really all that great. PS1 and Saturn were better, imo.

    SNES was the greatest console of all time.

    Why can't Nintendo go back to cartridges?

    PS1 was better than the N64. But Saturn? I can't think of even one game on the Saturn worth buying a Saturn for.

    Good hardware bottlenecked by cartridges. The N64 certainly hits a nostalgia point for me but from a business perspective it's safe to say it was relatively DOA thanks to the PlayStation. I don't think Nintendo wants to hit that mark again especially after the Wii U. I think they're hoping to actually push units into people's homes this time.

    DBZ The Legend was better on Saturn than PS1. Audio files were crystal clear and visuals were improved too.

    There are lots of good games for sega saturn. Especially if you are in to light gun games and fighting games.

    Setting aside all the points made in this thread already about the downsides of the N64, I kinda agree with you, but from what we have heard of the NX so far, it might be the console you're looking for.
    I am in no way disappointed with the Wii U's graphics, but the 3DS leaves something to be desired with the low resolution. The 3D effect would be much better utilized with a higher resolution as well.

    The Saturn didn't have an absolutely great library, but enough to beat the N64 rather easily. I'd recommend checking out the system if you enjoy fighting games, Nights, and other arcade style games.

    I think I read that the Saturn versions of Pandemonium were also better than PS1 but I never tried it out myself as I got the cheaper editions (PS1).

    Aren't these the clone consoles with really bad audio issues?

    Dreamcast for example needs no hacking. Just burn a CD with the game image and pop it in to play.

    PC is the greatest machine of all time.

    Why can't Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft give me a PC?

    ohhh wait. Sony and Microsoft already have a PC-like console. sorry Nintendo, you have to go.

    And why there are so many rant/praise threads about Nintendo lately??

    Castlevania Nocturne in the Moonlight?? AKA Castlevania Symphony of the Night full version??
    maybe just for that one, but the only superiority of that version is the content, the Technics aspects weren't that good.

    That is very subjective. A PC can be anything.
