But Reggie makes me laugh and Iwata brought us our beloved Nintendo direct!
Fact is, Nintendo is not just a videogame maker. It is a business with investors. It needs to make money. We keep hearing "next quarter we will be making money" next console things will be different".
But here we are at the dawn of a new un-paranoid about end of the world, world. We still have little third party Nintendo console support. What support se do have is miss-guided as usual and has had no effect on sales. I think the biggest third party WiiU game is either Just Dance4 or ZombiU and the sales are not big. 3DS is doing fine in the West. But nowhere near as good as it could be. Look at Japan compared with here. 3DS could be leagues ahead of the DS, but we have to be happy with it being about on par.
Wii and DS need to be on their way out the door. I know Nintendo wants to regain their honor and have the Wii pass the PS and DS pass the PS2, but it is hurting their new systems.
Finally we have the stock problem. It has to go up. I know ot was bloated with the extravagant sales of the DS and Wii back in the day, but where its at now will not cut the cake. The guys in charge have not been successful in a while. How long can excuses be accepted? Do not even get me started on marketing. Grade: D-
I know it is hard, but it may be time for new leadership. Dare I say...Miyamotos retirement? So fare he has been used to promote rushed Mario games. People hated Skyward Sword and Pikmin 3 will be lucky to beat his last creation of love: Wii music.
