    Miyamoto Still Has Doubts About Virtual Reality

    in Nintendo Discussion on 15 February 2017

    LivingMetal said: Miyamoto Still Has Doubts About Virtual Reality "When I see people play virtual reality, it makes me worry." Mario and Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto--and other Nintendo executives--have questioned the appeal of virtual reality in the past. In a new interview with Time, Miyamoto said some of the issues with VR he saw years ago are being worked on, but he still has some...

    RolStoppable said: ps4tw said: Because of this thing called "competition" and another thing called "business analytics".  What are you trying to say? If you are doing well, you want it to be known. If you aren't doing well, you want to make business analysis harder and distort reality to make yourself look better. That's why Sony keeps shouting about their PS4 sales...

I'd prefer to go with industry experts over this instead of some guy whose thought process boils down to "it...

    Does It Really Matter How Much Switch Sells?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 February 2017

    potato_hamster said: ps4tw said: While this is sensible and would hold true in most companies, the issue is that Nintendo is still very "Japanese" in its business strategy i.e. scared of change. Even though for a long time it's been apparent that Western-style gaming is popular, Nintendo has refused to make any Western-orientated IP, and out of reluctance to change, they may not...

With the Wii U, it wasn't. Therefore, if the Switch fails, then you'll see investors dump Nintendo shares which will either kill the company or force it to restructure its management and business...

    Does It Really Matter How Much Switch Sells?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 February 2017

    Soundwave said:   I mean lets operate from a basic assumption that because it's a Nintendo portable it will sell enough eventually to be profitable and sell at least 40-50 million or so and that's enough for Nintendo to make a Switch 2 or whatever it is they want to do.  Beyond that though it doesn't really matter that much how much further it goes really. PS4 and XB1 already...
