roadkillers said: I have to admit Nintendo is one of the best the only problem is they dont really make any new games. They just continue stuff or make new stuff with some of there popular charactors.
According to this site, less than 30 franchises in history have produced at least one game to sell 6 million, and total sales of 10 million. Even MGS and RE aren't in this company. By the end of this year, Nintendo will have created 5 such franchises since 1999. Brain Training, Nintendogs, Smash Bros, Animal Crossing and Wii-brand. That is an incredible record with new franchises. In fact, no other company has as many such franchises total, let alone 5 of them since 1999.

"[Our former customers] are unable to find software which they WANT to play."
"The way to solve this problem lies in how to communicate what kind of games [they CAN play]."

Satoru Iwata, Nintendo President. Only slightly paraphrased.
