Nintendo is a Victim of their own success.

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo is a Victim of their own success.

You know I think they have it at least partially true. Nintendo will have to shut down as a business once their headquarters becomes so stuffed with money that they can no longer open any doors without it being a safety hazard.

It will be a sad end to a great company =(

This is like the biggest load of crap I've ever read. Whoever wrote this has a serious problem dealing with reality. Actually, on second thought, this looks like MS FUD. No better time than now to BLAME WII FIT!
I wish I could be victimized like that.

My advice to fanboys: Brag about stuff that's true, not about stuff that's false. Predict stuff that's likely, not stuff that's unlikely. You will be happier, and we will be happier.

Yeah man, but the obviously flawed assumption made here in these articles is that soon, the Nintendo fad will die down, and the Wii will begin to be outpaced by other consoles.  "How many of those consoles are going to gamers"

 

That's past tense. It's not as if the Wii isn't still destroying everything on the market in sales of hardware and software.

 

Every good 3rd party game released has sold as well as expected, and certainly much better than they would have sold on the gamecube.

 

It's obviously incorrect, the assertion that Nintendo has hurt itself with the Wii or the DS, in fact, they probably saved the Nintendo brand now, and far into the future.

 

The point is, articles like this use generalizations based on assumptions that have been disproven time and time again, and are written only to be controversial, to marginalize the Wii, and to hook passers by with their morbid assertions that Nintendo is a "victim" or what have you.

 

The simple fact is, Nintendo is the most sucessful company in gaming, always have been. Now, they are also far and away the highest selling and most popular. All decent 3rd party games, and lots of shitty ones have sold very well on the system, and if their performance were a test, and their results in a snapshot were any indication, Nintendo passes with flying colors.

 

I know you would agree.

You're power hungry, spinnin' stories, and bein' graphics whores.

NO NO, NO NO NO.

This post looks like a FUD article from last year...

Now what's surprising me the most are two things:

  1. The only other VGC member I have seen using the bolded part was Dodece. Of course he didn't have a source to back up this claim either.
  2. The whole text is written in a memorable pattern. I mean, the use of periods is just weird. Who writes like this? Except for Dodece of course.

So what could this mean? Here are some random guesses:

  1. SSPOrSK found a provocating post in Dodece's posting history and decided to post it just for his own amusement.
  2. SSPOrSK is an alternate account of Dodece and he decided to post his old work again.
  3. Pure coincidence, nothing more to it.
Anyway, in this day and age, nonsense like the OP is ridiculed, evidenced by the flood of animal pictures in this thread. I just wanted to point out some things that I have observed. Make from that what you will.

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

Around the Network

Third party devs are a big part of the blame. When they make a good game (Zack and Wiki, MoH, Trauma Center: NB, etc.) THE DONT MARKET IT!!!! Or they will advertise the hell out of it but they will rush the game like Red Steel.

Third party devs HAVE to invest in their games. The publishers have to put good dev teams together and then market the game. People say there arent any hardcores on wii or there are not enough of them. Well I say that is the biggest BS I have ever heard. The Wii sells out faster than hell and you have to wait in lines to do that. Non gamers generally wont do that. They will not sit at your local EB games. Look at the games that did sell well. They are mostly hardcore. The games that were developed right and marketed correctly sold an easy million.

DEAL WITH IT most of the audience on Wii is still hardcore. Its just there are more non gamers on wii than other consoles.

You dont see alot of third party devs doing this because they are so F###### lazy with Wii.

Conversely there is a bad trend with Nintendo fans. They are so stupid sometimes. All they will buy this year is SSBB, MK Wii, and the next big multiplat game that is done correctly on Wii (GHIII). These foolish fanboys will ignore Bully, Okami, de Blob, Pikmin 3, NMH, HotD 2 and 3 and so many more. I would nott be surprised to find the ultra informed Nintendo fan more inclined to buy 5 copies of SSBB rather than try the few good third party games.

THIS is a 2 way deal people. Its a give and take. We need to show companies we are not just going to buy the next big Zelda and the companies need to show us they wont just give us a crappy PS2 port.

the bottom line is profit. you pick a strategy and stick with it, and as long as profit grows, you're succeeding.

any other criteria of "success" or "fail" is subjective.

and yes, good job Kim!



the Wii is an epidemic.
