But Kaiser, they gotta have hard drives
I just got my Wii set up here, and it's amazing, but I might, at some point, be concerned about the lack of a hard drive on that system, since it allows you to download old games and has game saves.
Even the 20 gbs of my 360 might not be enough in the long run of the system's life.
Here is what I want though. All these places allow you to buy content digitally that many people will lose when the system dies or when their PC crashes or they get a new PC and don't bother with content transfer really. These services, whether Itunes, Nintendo's Virtual Console, etc, need to protect consumers and give them a lifetime access to the digital content that they purchase, otherwise, I'd rather just buy the DVD, for example, rather then then digital version of a show.
Ohhh and on topic....I figure an XBOX portable is inevitable. But Nintendo will be hard to beat in handhelds....almost untouchable. I sold my PSP
