(if it doesn't have voice chat its an immediate red flag to me)


Nintendo needs to adopt a party chat system similar to Microsoft. You can simply chat with friends in your party regardless of what game you're in, or whether you're even in a game. That would eliminate most of the discussion as to whether "x" game, or "y" game needs voice chat. It's just soemthing gamers should be able to do with their friends while they are on their console. Period.

Ever heard of an outlier. That's exactly what the WII was, it was an outlier in a sense that the WII obtained the biggest casual audience any Nintendo console has done/will ever do. When carrying out an experiment, just because you have one outlier doesn't mean that suddenly the whole experiment shift towards that outlier but rather that it is quietly disregarded as something which had gone wrong in the experiment and shouldn't effect the final conclusion of that experiment.

If I asked you to put the six Nintendo home consoles into two categories, unconventional and traditional, how would you sort them?



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

Ahh, the infamous Nintendo cycle. The thing is that people is lookin at the wrong direction: It's not the consoles the ones that change, it's the competition

But what of the NX then? Whether it's 2016 or 2017, the competition is going to be hella strong, specially PS4. Getting into this gen earlier and bowing out of it earlier... that's a huge problem for them.

Traditional: Nes, SNES, N64, GameCube,

Unconventional: WII, WII U*

 

*I would actually place the WII U as a hybrid of a conventional and an unconventional home console.



We all know Sony domination is a real thing and there is nothing Microsoft or Nintendo can do about it....

With how the are treating current owners, they are really hurting Nintendo's image.

Why do you think of the Wii U that way? It has a dual analog controller with a screen on it. That's really not much different from the PS4 which has a dual analog controller with a touchpad on it. Or is the PS4 unconventional too? If not, why?

Maybe it's for the best. Most people have labeled the WiiU as a dead-ish console. If Nintendo brings the NX with enough 3rd party support and some of the biggest Nintendo titles (Zelda U, NX version, some other big launch titles), could push the system. Nintendo doesn't need to sell 100 million units on their home consoles to be profitable: they just need to reach N64 or more to be really comfortably profitable, something impossible with the U.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

It's just the image, the games which were being pushed early on and so on. To me anyways it's in a  middle stage were it's becoming more a traditional console but it still hasn't broken out of the unconventional console mold. That's my take.

 

So let's say that we agreed that the WII U is a conventional console. How does that lead us to trying to predict the future popularity of the NX?

At this point, that is what i'm expecting.

They will lose consumer trust and therefore early adopters will be less.

Unless, of course, they somehow find a way to regain that casual market.
