Nintendo's quarterly results are actually reassuring in a way. Because despite a loss, compared to a small profit last year in the corresponding quarter, they maintained their profit forecast. Meaning that what we are seeing now is just the remaining bleeding out of the Wii U and 3DS, but they really expect to get out of this situation this FY, and profits should increase exponentially next year, because they will both have new/more profit from NX and mobile, while also getting rid of the loss-leaders called Wii U (and 3DS to a lesser extent. It has sold pretty well, but due to Nintendo making a too expensive console, the wind was taken out of its sales which reduced potential profit).

Yeah, I wasn't worried because of those results. Q1 is often the worst out of the bunch.

And yes, if NX doesn't repeat the most damning mistake of the 3DS and Wii U (hardware that has to be sold at a significant loss), then there's really great potential for profits.

Even the thing Eurogamer and IGN reported could make good money for Nintendo it's not too expensive (that's a big if though) and isn't sold at a loss. Which is impressive actually, because imo, the concept is very sketchy. It has more drawbacks than benefits.

I was asked directly about its chances for success and answered 50m lifetime. Not too bad, but quite meh all around.

I agree that it isn't a good design because of the resulting price and the various concessions that need to be made in order to address different needs. There's a serious risk that such a product serves neither need really well.

That is what I think is the problem too. By attempting to be both, it could end up being neither.

To NX or not to NX, that is the question.

The decision will be easier once you know what it is.

Apparently I'm the alt of someone called Antabus now. I don't even know who he is haha

It's so funny because the personality traits are like night and day, making it an impossibility to keep up a charade for the duration of ~10k posts.

Sorry to disappoint you but I made another politics thread

Will you at least work on your blue collar English?

Blue collar English?

The term refers to the less educated working class and they are infamous for errors like "would have gave".

Where did I write 'would have gave' rather than 'would have given'? *panics*

In the thread where you talked about a robber who should have been shot.

:( Is being blue collar an upgrade from a simpleton at least? :p

No, it's precisely the reason why I told you that Google says that you are a simpleton. Back then I searched Google for your misuse of the English language and "Blue Collar English" was what it spat out.

< ReimTime posted something on RolStoppable's wall:

Rol do you think they'll drop the Wii U's price anytime soon, if at all? Surely the XBO price cut and imminent arrival of the NX will drive them to drop it, right?

Unless you recommend waiting for the NX's arrival and buying that instead....

Given that Nintendo's forecast for Wii U shipments this fiscal year has only been 800k units, I do not expect an official price cut. The console is effectively ending production this year, so Nintendo is shipping what is left in their warehouses.

What's left to hope for is that retailers will clear out their Wii U stock at lower prices, but given how low the shipments this year will be, the remaining demand for Wii U might very well exceed the actual supply.

I expect the NX to be unveiled in September and at that time it should also be confirmed whether or not it will be backwards compatible with the Wii U. If it is BC, then it's obviously smarter to buy an NX. Will be about the same price as a Wii U, but has an actual future and plays all Wii U games.

But once again, I'll have to disappoint you. I don't expect NX to be BC with the Wii U, at least not 100%. So you should be prepared to buy a Wii U in late September if you want to play Wii U games. A price drop seems unlikely even during Black Friday, because Nintendo doesn't want to push sales anymore and retailers don't consider it a hot item to lure customers to their stores.

And yes, that's a long answer to a small question, but these are unique circumstances. The only things I want to say for certain is that you shouldn't wait until after the holidays if you intend to buy a Wii U (by that time all the stock may be gone), and that you should wait for the NX reveal to have an easier time deciding what you want to do.

Why you should get a Nintendo NX Day One!

If Eurogamer is right, How many NXs will sell?

Louie said: Why are people so pessimistic? This will be Nintendo's one and only system so the software output for this device will be as large as the one for Wii U and 3DS combined. I'm skeptical about the form factor personally (I hope the screen is not larger than 5 inches because I don't want to carry a Wii U gamepad around) but the sheer number of 1st party games released for NX should...
