Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Can Nintendo sell to other crowds than DS and PS360?

So far, the threads have grown like a plague saying that since Nintendo's 3DS is doing well and Nintendo can't market to the PS360 crowd, that the WiiU is doomed.

Is there any way that Nintendo could target an audience that is neither one, nor the other?

Or are we completely blind to any concept like that?

Nintendo is the one who decided to go after the PS3/360 audience with the WiiU, they failed at that so people are criticizing them.

Predictions for end of 2014 HW sales:

3DS: 53m   PS3: 88m   360: 85m   PS4: 15m   XBO: 11m       WiiU: 10.8m   Vita: 10.2m

Not sure what you fixed, I think my comment was pretty accurate. They built the WiiU as an inclusive system to get the hardcore back on board. Go watch their E3 WiiU announcement, all they talked about was 3rd party support.

Yes, they can.

Or is this a specific Wii U question? That thing is a lost cause just like the GameCube.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I think they showed that with the wii.
They can.. just need to know how this time

I don't see any logical reason to equate the U to the Gamecube, not even in terms of sales.

Well... the only other market from my eyes is the apple/google market that are into stuff remotely like this... But its hard to target them since they already have an ipad/tablet and the wiiU can't do what they need it to do...

Other than that... idk... Maybe the art crowd? Nintendo can attract them but they need something more than just art acadamy
