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?
