It does indeed happen, but it's rare to see an entire team go off and start their own studio in the same mold as their previous one wouldn't you say?

No. That happens all the time.
Not only that, over the course of over 10 years about 80% of the people change anyway

Its not that Rare.  Land Ho were almost completely made up of ex CS team Sega staff when  they set up. Artoon other corp set up with mostly ex Sonic Team Sega staff (much like Prope)  and Genki were formed out of almost 100% Ex AM#2 staff

See above.

Nintendo are set to talk about the Switch soon. It'll be interesting to see if the rumours of beyond good and evil 2 are true.

Hard to be exited about a sequel to an ok 13 year old game on a tablet-grade powered Nintendo console..
I just want Nintendo to die already, so that their games are developed by better studios and come out on better platforms.

After the failure the Wii U was, I can't understand how they could fuck this launch up so badly and focus on such shitty gimmicks. "Okay THIS time we'll get all the Wii buyers back..."

Here's some pricing too:

USA: $299
Euro: €329
UK: £279

UK game prices already up:

Mario Kart £50
Zelda: £60

To put that in context, games rarely ever go past £40 here and if they do, it's only about £44.99 and not for very long as they don't shift off the shelves. Even with the drop in sterling, this goes way above that. As for the rest of Europe...jeez, Nintendo really don't like you. The bottom line is, it's just too expensive for what it is.

They've had the same words by publishers etc thrown behind it as usual, but nothing to actual back it up. Oh, and apparently the charge will last up to 6 hours as a handheld and only 2.5 for more taxing games like Zelda.

Don't know what to laugh at the most.  The lame showing,  the insane pricing, the lack of games or Nintendo charging for online lol.  Game over Nintendo... At least Sega tried with the DC
