good luck, people will still find away to whine about nintendo
To be fair, people find a way to complain about everything
in their lives and outside their lives. I pay little attention to that unless it comes from someone I know and consider to have common sense (the least common of the senses!).
Now, for an anecdote, I live in Mexico. In 2006 or so when that generation of consoles were coming out, the Xbox 360 was around the then-equivalent to $550 USD, the Wii around $410, but the Ps3... The PS3, as I saw it with my own eyes, cost $1,820 USD. Yes, that's right, it was almost as much as rent in a big apartment in an upper-class neighborhood.
Really, as long as price differences don't get that ridiculous, who the hell cares if it's $500?
Ultimately, the truth is gamers are a whiny bunch. I spend about half as much taking my wife to the cinema as I do on a newly-released videogame, for roughly 2 hours of entertainment versus 8 hours from any average AAA game. If it were a math problem, gaming is more cost effective.
Of course life doesn't work that way, but if people would like more games to offer 30 hours or so rather than 8-12 then it's as simple as to refrain from buying the latter in order to make the business studies and polls reveal the people at the top of the gigantic corporation what the gamer really wants, what's gonna sell their product. Whining does very little to change these things. And people are too tight with money. I mean, I'm a bit broke and have been tight for three years or so, haven't bought a single new release during this time and don't have the new consoles because I don't feel they offer me what I want yet, not for that price. So I don't buy and that's a concrete result, a measurable statistic. If the NX comes out and costs $150 more but if offers what I want, I'm gonna make the investment and buy it, even if I have to save up a couple months.
Price? No big deal.
