    Portable console gaming is dead

    http://customstoday.com.pk/super-mario-creator-nintendo-earns-14-3-billion-yen/ http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/finance/2014_02.html Nintendo's 2nd quarter report (July 1-Sept 30, 2014) is the best 2nd quarter they have had in the last 5 years with a 14.3 billion Yen profit ($132 million USD). And more importantly, their capital adequacy ratio is the highest it's been in 5 years during that...

    zorg1000 said: I agree with this, software prices are a big problem, $30 should be the maximum. Hardware price is pretty reasonable but could be better, 3DS XL is almost 2.5 years old and is still at its launch price. 2DS, $99.99 3DS XL, $149.99 Retail Software, $19.99-29.99 Digital only software, $14.99 maximum In this scenario sales could very well be better but it might be in...

    As far as Nintendo Phone goes, Nintendo is a dinosaur that won't be able to get with the times. Nintendo are even bigger control freaks than Apple. They have to have their own walled garden. Good luck selling the public on the idea of a Nintendo Smartphone OS. iOS has the first mover advantage. Android offers a lot more choice. And Windows Phone is a cross between choice and stability. My...

    Lucas-Rio said: 2DS is too ugly to be a serious hit. I say, discontinue the 2DS or release a new version which look like the 3DS. Keep the 3DS for brand recognition and release until at least mid-end 2016 to milk the user base at the maximum. Don't lower the prices of games, at no costs, because that's what bring Nintendo money. I'm in favour of a 2DS re-design. The current...

    kristianity77 said:I dont think portable gaming is dead, its just that whoever makes the next one has got to offer serious value for money. Mobile gaming, despite the general consensus that 99% of the games are garbage, is continually on the rise because of the lure of gaming for a few pounds a pop. The Vita would have fared better if it offered backwards compatibility with the PS2 for...

    amp316 said:I don't know. Those 3DSes still seem to sell a bit. If this thread is about non-Nintendo portable systems then I absolutely agree.

    Viktor said:Only when it comes to Sonys handhelds. But this kind of bitter thread started by a sony fan isn´t that surprising. Rooting for a company seems far more important than reality it seems, so no surprise seeing this kind of behavior when PSV is about to die. Definitely not a Sony fanboy. I own a 3DS and PS Vita. The overall console market in Japan is very, very weak...

    Google just announced the Nexus Player for $99 (Android TV device that plays games. The hardware is developed by ASUS. Runs Android naturally. Since it's Google. The gamepad accessory is $40). Coming November 3rd. Nintendo is officially finished in the west. On the portable and home console front. Why buy a 2DS or a Wii U for your kids when you can get a Nexus Player and a gamepad for $140 and...

    nuckles87 said:A few things: Inflation is kind of irrelevant, since the average wage hasn't increased with inflation, it's fallen behind. So even if the value of the console is essentially the same, that doesn't negate the fact that consumer buying power has fallen. 3DS has been doing fine since the price drop, and Nintendo hasn't been losing money on it for awhile now. Nintendo's main...

    Winning a console war in Japan in 2014 doesn't mean anything when the sales figures look like this. 3DS 16,305,639 PSV 3,227,735 WiiU 1,931,114 PS4 723,160 XOne 30,991 The console gaming market in Japan has shrunk massively.

    Podings said:The NES and SNES relied on casual gamers too. They had nowhere else to go. So in that regard these systems were not terribly different from Wii and DS. I can also not take the title of this topic particularly seriously when the 3DS is outselling all home systems combined in Japan. While Nintendo owes a lot of it's success to casual games like Tetris, Duck Hunt (a...

    Shadow1980 said:And handheld gaming is far from doomed. Everyone seems to consider the DS the bar for handhelds to reach, and now that the 3DS is obviously going to fail to reach 150 million, and by a considerable margin, many people are proclaiming "DOOM!" But the DS shouldn't be considered the bar. It should be considered a fluke, an abberation. It took the original Game Boy line...

    RolStoppable said:That's a bit dramatic. 1. The 2DS's main problem is that it is not a completely separate product from the 3DS, so it's plagued by the same bad perception. With the 3DS Nintendo made a handheld that many people didn't like, period. With the 2DS, the only thing Nintendo managed to do is shift the complaint from "I don't like 3D." to "If I am not using the 3D, then why...

    Ka-pi96 said:Wait... so that Sean Malstrom guy claims to be an old-school Nintendo fan but doesn't like the N64? The N64? Seriously? Sean Malstrom grew up with the NES. And I think he might be in his 40s by now, if not his 30s. "New school" for his generation (as well as mine, I'm pushing 30) is synonymous with 3D graphics. The Sega Saturn, Sony Playstation and N64 ushered in a...

    The 3DS is approaching half of DS sales all-time in Japan. But it is only now approaching a quarter of DS sales all-time in North America, Europe and the "other" territories The 3DS would have to sell another 30+ million units worldwide to hit the half-way mark of the DS. It's hard to see it happening at this point. Even a large minority of the Japanese market is abandoning Nintendo in favour...

    I had written an email to Sean Malstrom (public enemy #1 on this forum) yesterday about the 3DS/2DS. Thought I'd share it. Sean Malstrom for anyone who isn't aware is an old-school Nintendo fan who doesn't like the N64, Gamecube, Wii U and 3DS. He liked the NES, SNES, Gameboy line, DS and Wii. He argued that the DS and Wii were a lot like the NES/SNES. When really the DS and Wii were heavily...

    In what way did Sony ever think they could compete with Nintendo in the handheld market?

    the-pi-guy said:I think the Nintendo 2DS is more like a response to Pokemon.  They are marketing it to kids and guess what Pokemon X/Y(The first 3DS only pokemon games) and the new Nintendo 2DS is coming out on the same day.   That's definitely a factor of course. Nintendo probably found out through focus group research and/or surveys that parents feel that the Nintendo 3DS...
