Nintendo wasn't doomed THEN, but is doomed NOW

Forums - Sales Discussion - Nintendo wasn't doomed THEN, but is doomed NOW

Dude, what? The only thing I can possibly muster for a conclusion/point of the OP, is that you're saying because a lot of teens have HD systems and are loyal to those brands, that no one will get the next Nintendo system. If this is the case, then lets think about this for a second - what if the next Zelda/Mario/Metroid game is amazing on the new Nintendo console, and you must have this game. Now factor in all the CoD or whatever games that everyone plays on the current HD systems. But now those games are coming out for the new Nintendo system, because the devs can make the same games on this system. So now you can have ONE console that plays all your CoD games PLUS all the Nintendo exclusives.

I think that via this concept, the other companies are in hot water in the next gen, as they've not really done a stellar job at creating unique, exclusive IPs for their brand.

I've re-read it twice now (granted I'm not completely 100% focused on it) and I don't quite get the analogy.

I sorta get the CoD is SMB in the 4th scenario but I'm failing to see the overall point to the post.  Perhaps someone can enlighten me?

That's an analogy-overkill, but it can be summed up by "Nintendo is selfdestructing". No real interest to continue with what made them successful, but instead pursuing what drives them towards irrelevance.

Nailed it. That's exactly what I think.



I don't get what you trying to say :(

Something about the next DOOM game being exclusive on the next Nintendo home console.

Nintendo will be swimming in "red ocean" again next gen.



Very clever, but too hard to deciper the point. The OP should try rewriting this.

Maybe you should exlpain the anology of each point in detail at the end? Your explainations would be a good read and be natural jumping points for others' discussions.

this is exactly what OP meant



Nintendo is never in trouble here at VGC, prepare for your thread to get shot down...



This is a doomed thread mix in with more Malstrom insight. AKA Nintendo will not succeed ever again because their not shoving 2D Super Mario Bros, and other so called arcade type games aka Wii series down their audiences throat. Good forbid for a company to make new hardware, and try new things. Let's do exactly what we did with the Wii just put it in HD. The same thing that Move is, and that is so successful!

Malstrom and others like to use the Gamecube as Nintendo ulimate failure. Mainly because they tried to do what they other guys were doing. The point is they weren't doing exactly what the others were doing. Nintendo didn't buy exclusives like Sony did with Grand Theft Auto. The didn't use full size discs that keep 3rd parties away from making bigger games on the system. Then finally they didn't fight back in the media war. Sony and Micrsoft did a hell of a job in painting and putting the Gamecube in a kid corner.

Now in the current gaming industry where companies are closing because they are not making money. Even if they have a bias against Nintendo. They need the opprunity that Project Cafe will present to them. If Project Cafe can get western games, and helps the east. It will help Nintendo broading their scope a little, and 3rd parties make some extra money. 

The difference in approach, hardware with the Wii, and 3rd parties hate for Nintendo. Played a role in what happen with the Wii. Still with out a doubt if the Wii was the egual to the other current console. It would have gotten the same games as them. In the end that's what we all really just want.



 

Just because someone is saying something different. Doesn't mean their point of view is right!
