Subject: Nintendo 3DS: New platform, old story.
Every time someone releases a new hardware platform there's an interview with one of the lucky developers who was chosen to help out with the launch lineup.  This interview reveals very little, and always covers the same points.  Here's a checklist for you to use next time you're reading an interview like this:

[ ] It's vastly more powerful than what we had before.
[ ] The new features will allow us to explore new kinds of gameplay.
[ ] It's not easy to develop for, and any developer who merely ports an existing game will fail.
[ ] It will target a different audience from the last generation.
[ ] It may cost more to develop for, but it'll be worth it.
[ ] Our company is uniquely suited to develop an all new experience for this platform.

See this 3DS dev interview for example.  They do the same thing every generation.
