Will nintendo ever make another gimmick-less console?

I hope one day they can make one. It would have a pretty good chance of being good. As these gimmicks have worn thin and consumers have taken notice

All Consoles are Gimmick based

What was the gimmick of the PS3 and 360? Nothing really comes to mind.

They have PS Move and Kinect...you know after claiming the Wii's motion controls are a joke.

I can't think of one nintendo console sold WITHOUT a gimmick.

Super Nintendo was a gimmick. The super.
The NES had a bundle of gimmicks, some failed, some did well... The Zapper.
The Gameboy was a gimmick to game portable and cheaply.
The DS was a gimmick of two screens is better than one.
The Nintendo 64 was the gimmick that 64 was better than 32 (similar strategy to Super) and the controller.
The Gamecube gimmick was that the Cube was the center of gaming, or something like that.

They don't come with the original console though. They aren't built in gimmicks like nintendos

Being a novel mechanical device.

1b : an ingenious or novel mechanical device



Are we really f***ing doing this again, board? XD Hahaha... all video games and video game systems, by nature, are gimmicks.





>_> *sigh*

Kinect, Move, exclusives, BR, HD-DVD, Smart Glass, Vita/PSP connectivity, etc.

You know general selling points all systems try to do since if you go on just by power alone the system would have nothing going for it.

I mean why sped $600 on a launch PS3 when you could spend it on a PC?

The PS3 gimmick (originally) was that it did everything.
The 360 gimmick, or Xbox gimmick in general is Xbox Live. And actually, that RRoD backfired, I think that was meant to be a gimmick in a way.

What if they don't like WOW and Farmville?
