Good read!

Thanks man! :) I run the blog as part of my work with Young Adults with Asperger's Syndrome, but all readers and feedback are welcome!

Do you feel alright? You don't have any urges to run amok, do you?

Why so concerned about someone in the real ?

on 31 March 2014

why, cos of Godzilla in my sig? haha

on 31 March 2014

No, because of your "Wii U is a good console" delusions.

on 31 March 2014

Good in what sense? From a commercial standpoint it's a disaster. But it's amassing a pretty great library, so in terms of the fun I'm having with it, I'd call it good.

on 31 March 2014

Good in the sense of appeal. Instead of going on and on about how certain games aren't what people wanted, you should ask the same question about the console itself.

Another thing that you need to question is what it actually means if it is true that the 3DS is cannibalizing the Wii U. Is it stealing 10k units in sales each and every week? Such a small number would still leave the Wii U in huge failure territory. Is it 50k? That still wouldn't look good for the Wii U, but on the other hand it would drag down the 3DS to an awful level as well. So in other words, your belief is that Nintendo's handheld business is only in an acceptable shape because it's absorbing Nintendo's home console audience. Then what is killing the 3DS?

on 31 March 2014

Smartphones

on 31 March 2014

And why is that?

on 31 March 2014

Cheap/free games, undermines the retail price model for portables.

on 31 March 2014

Why aren't home consoles affected?

on 31 March 2014

People think of a portable as similar to a phone cos its a small electronic device you carry around

on 31 March 2014

So you are saying people wouldn't substitute their home console with something as small as a phone? Why wouldn't they?

on 31 March 2014

I see where you're trying to steer me. Maybe if phones had Mario Kart and Smash Bros people would substitute a Nintendo console with a phone.

on 31 March 2014

So in summary:

1) The 3DS is cannibalizing the Wii U, because the games are too similar and the 3DS is cheaper. The solution is very different games for both.

2) Smartphones are cannibalizing the 3DS, even though it has very different games. Smartphones could potentially cannibalize the Wii U, if they had games like Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. There's no solution to save the Nintendo handheld other than sacrificing the Nintendo home console.

on 31 March 2014

3DS is cannibalizing Wii U for Nintendo games. Smartphones are cannibalizing the casuals who can do without Nintendo games.

on 31 March 2014

Oh well, time makes more converts than reason.

You would do well as a shrink mister!
