Therefore, I have no reason to buy one. I like MK, but it's not enough to sell a system for me.
Agree. I'm actually shocked a new Zelda is not already out, and it doesn't appear to be on the horizon anytime soon.
When they release a new system, they should already have a Zelda, Metroid and Mario games, along with DK and MK already to go shortly after launch. That would push the hardware, and then when people start getting bored with it, launch the next game in those series.
The hardware can be fantastic, but if you have no software for it, no one is going to buy it, especially with some very strong competition from PS and Xbox.
