Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Would you be just as big a Nintendo fan if they went "software" only?

 

Let's face it. The world is changing and businesses have to adapt. Nintendo was around for nearly 80 years before Videogames and before they became a hardware company. To last another 80 years they will need to adapt even more as time goes by.

Will you still be just as big a Nintendo fan, salivating over Nintendo games as they are anounced, or will you become a Sega fan and basically forget the past and forget your favorite company?

I would assume that the games would be pouring out of Nintendo if this did happen becaue they would have no stress on their plate. No more hardware to worry about. That seems to take up most of their time and resources. I know that they have different divisions so that hardware does not really effect software like that. But I am sure there is still some connections. The money is all the same.

Quality may go down? Would it be hard to stay loyal if the quality went down like it has with Sega?



 Bananaking was right, I was wrong. Like he always is. About the 3DS not selling at least 19.999 million in 2013...

I'd buy a Virtual Boy to block out the cruel world.

The box is irrelevant, software is all. It depends on if Nintendo could be able to maintain the high quality of their games

Hardcore=elitist casuals

Prediction: PS4 will be more powerful and cheaper than XBOX ONE

That would just make you hate other companies more, because you would see everything in Red.

I'll be a fan of the old company, not the new one. Nintendo is the only company out there who wants to surprise people with new ideas instead of people only giving what they want. If they go software only and therefore are dependent of third party developers... Nintendo will die instantly. Especially if they work with western companies that only cares about graphics and performance and doesn't give a damn about gameplay. It would be something like hell on earth. It will be like seeing your best friend suffering and dying and you just can't do something about it.

no, it's a fact that their games are so good cause they know their hardware just sooo good.

I actually expect Samsung to try for the console market with a partnership with Nintendo instead of purely "software only".


 Nintendopie  Was obviously right and I was obviously wrong. I will forever be a lesser being than them. (6/16/13)

yea considering i only like some of they're software...

They would have no one telling them what to do, or any time limits. They could release games when they wanted. Not having to worry about whether or not their consoles or handhelds were going to suffer if they delayed them longer.

Yes. I'm not a huge fan of Nintendo's hardware especially of recent years.

Software is where it counts - would be awesome to see it on Steam especially ;p
