1. Welcome to The Infinity Program, a general discussion forum that has been around since June, 2004. As the founder, one of my goals is to maintain this community even as others fall to the wayside. Also, I want to encourage engaging conversation by regularly submitting new topics that contain thoughts and insights rather than just aggregated material. Finally, none of the posts here are the result of “exchanges” or “packages”—i.e., all participation at this forum is “organic.”

    If you are a first time visitor and want to know more about this place, read the “Guide,” “A Short History of the Forum,” “Five Reasons to Switch to the Infinity Program,” and the highly entertaining “A Brief History of the Universe.” Along those lines, The Infinity Encyclopedia describes notable members and topics, and notable events of the forum. Alternatively, if you want to submit feedback, contact us.

    Should Nintendo ditch the hardware?

      (Medora, Jan 30, 2015, Electronic Verve)

    I just read 'Why Nintendo must stay the course with hardware,' an article by GamesIndustry.biz writer Rob Fahey arguing against the seemingly increasing calls by fans of more popular consoles, industry commentators and critics, etc., for Nintendo to ditch the hardware and focus on distributing its software on iOS, Android, PS4, Xbox One, etc., as the more sensible business strategy, and a surefire way to bring in more fans. I found much of interest, but the following stuck out to me because hidden in it is a point I have thought about for some time: For some of those who talk about...
