if they merge handheld library with home console, they can easily.

In my opinion the next Nintendo home console will be released 2015 or early 2016.


2015? What? The Wii U only having a life cycle of 3 years? Do you seriously believe Nintendo would do that?



Enough to sell software, but not to keep hardware shifting.

So no.

Having a console with less than 5 or 6 years of lifespam is a deathsentence for any hardware bussiness.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

No they don't have enough games to last 5 years, that's why I imagine they are probably making some more.

Agreed. I can only think of one exception, and that is the Virtual Boy. But it did almost destroy Nintendo.



If any company supports their console to the bitter end, it's Nintendo.



They have SOO many old IP's they can do stuff with. If Nintendo would do it's out-scourcing more, it could basically compete with the entire industry.
