Not to be Debby downer, but it'll be 2014 at the earliest. If this is cost effective, and priced right, Nintendo could be back again with another inovation in 2015/16 lining right up or after. So yeah, let's not bother with the console war BS.
The bigger question is what will it offer to make current gen owners go out to buy another console.
HD is on par with the Xbox, and possibly a tad below PS3 First party titles. Just about everyone playing the games they just showed already owns a Xbox/PS3, or has friends on those systems networks. Not sure if Nintendo first party titles will be enough, Nintendo and 3rd party publishers don't exactly have the best relationship currently, AND there's no cool novelty factor there like there was with the Wii, which led to it being a hot must have toy of the year (two years really).
I like it as a gamer, but I'm not sure where it fits as a good path forward to Nintendo.
