Not to mention Nintendo DID release something half-decent, actually just plain great, with the original DS, and the Lite was a fantastic upgrade. The DSi wasn't too bad of an upgrade either. This new DSi is a bit silly, I'll admit, but until now Nintendo wasn't really doing anything different from what they've done in the past.
tl;dr you're overreacting dear.
I'm not saying nintendo hasn't done anything good at all, and yes I know they've been doing it for quite some time, the fact is though the DS or rather the DSi could have been done properly the first time. Instead of this chain.
