    Nintendo and Third Party... Who is really to blame?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 29 January 2015

    Nintendo has had a bad history with third parties since there was a real competitor (Playstation). At that point, its Draconian contracts and its reliance on older technology became too much. If you look at the top-selling games for each system, its been 80% Nintendo, 20% third-party for Nintendo consoles since the Gamecube generation (if not before). It was the inverse for the competing...

    Bloomberg: Nintendoís Outlook Disappoints and Mario Canít Save Wii U (Stock down 8.7%)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 29 January 2015

    The only way Nintendo's stock was going to rise was if it announced it was developing for smart devices or if it laid off half its workforce. The 3DS never got the initial install base and handhelds are becoming an increasingly harder sale. My guess is that Nintendo rides out this year, then surprises everyone with a hybrid system in 2016. ...

    Nintendo Goes Copyright On Woman Making Pokemon-Inspired Planters

    in Nintendo Discussion on 20 August 2014

    I also think people are missing that it appears Shapeways was selling ceramic models of these. So they basically were selling unauthorized Pokemon merchandise. As such, seeking monetary compensation is not unusual. Sports leagues do that with counterfeiters all the time. ...

    Nintendo Goes Copyright On Woman Making Pokemon-Inspired Planters

    in Nintendo Discussion on 20 August 2014

    The entire article, including the misleading title, are copied from one site ... which in turn had copied the article almost verbatim from another. Many people in the digital world do not respect the copyright of others' work because they do not recognize the copyright of others' work. ...

    Pachter: Nintendo should go third party until they can make a good console

    in Nintendo Discussion on 18 January 2014

    Actually, Nintendo should take a page out of Coleco's play book and make inferior versions of its. Games for other platforms in an effort to wet people's appetites and get them to then spend money on playing the better version of the game on Nintendo hardware. This makes as much sense in the long run as Pachter's suggestion, And Nintendo does not think quarterly like analysts, it thinks...

    Former Ratchet and Clank, Skylanders dev confirms early Wii U development problems

    in Nintendo Discussion on 15 January 2014

    chris_wing said: hsrob said:That Eurogamer article only maintains relevance if the problems still exist as many in the initial thread were trying to suggest. We have numerous sources now saying that development is no harder than any other system. It's time for the mountain to become a molehill again. The problem that this early inadequate SDK caused was a lack of quality...

    Rumor: Nintendo has Begun Development on a Next-Generation Machine

    in Nintendo Discussion on 15 January 2014

    Move on people. Nothing to see. Not really news. This is what happens in the industry. Now if the GAFer could show that Nintendo was developing a hybrid system to supplant both the WiiU and the 3DS, then you get my attention. ...

    Report: Xbone voice commands don't work like advertised. Requires repetition.

    in Microsoft Discussion on 11 November 2013

    One point that people are missing is that you don't want to have problems with the Associated Press. Those who are not into the gaming press will be watching/reading/following general media outlets -- which get their information from the Associated Press. So if you are a parent and reading the news and see this about a console that is $100 more expensive than its next competitor -- what...

    Apple Could Put the Final Nail in Nintendoís Coffin

    in Nintendo Discussion on 08 September 2013

    This story got posted on both of the Nntendo website that I frequent, Tech bloggers love Apple, ignoring the fact that it is losing market share to Android (in fact it is no longer the market leader in handsets). Apple still leads in downloads but that advantage is shrinking. They also tout products which are thought to not have much of a market as major "game changers" (pardon the pun). ...

    Nintendo's WII -U will win the Holiday Season and the Next Gen IF

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 September 2013

    Here are my thoughts. WiiU sales will improve with a lower price point and more games. I will be seen as a better value than either Sony or Microsoft's new consoles --$160 to $260 cheaper to actually be ready to play a game. The XB1 and PS4 are similarly architectured PC like devices. They will eventually find themselves competing with gamers against PCs. Nintendo's biggest sellers come...

    Bethesda/Gearbox point out why they don't support Wii U

    in Nintendo Discussion on 02 September 2013

    Bethesda has never shown much love for Nintendo. So not a real surprise. Gearbox has been all over the place on it (can't provide links since I am posting from my iPad). So can't really trust what they are saying, The specs are different and the audience is somewhere different.  (But the specs are not all tht diffeerent than current systems for which these companies currently develop and...

    How the heck are we supposed to reach the 2DS touchscreen?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 September 2013

    In reading this thread. I wonder how may people have tried the 2DS. My guess is next to none, if not none. Because a log of hands-on stories actually found th machine much better than expected. I think it is toy-ish. I don't think it is meant for me. I want to hold it before passing judgement. Mike from Morgantown ...
