I completely agree with you on this. I just don't thnk Nntendo has the resources to compete with Sony, Microsoft, Apple, and Google in the home media center market.

For the NX to succeed they have to bring a better platform than the PS4 and XBO, and at this point I don't see any way they can do this. The only way they have a chance is major partnerships with 3rd parties, and multimedia providers. The problem with that, however, is the lack of a userbase. Sony and MS have to battle to get content because there are competitors with much larger userbases than even 360 or PS4. It has taken Sony 18 months to start getting scoring partnerships, and it is going to take another 18 months before all of these partenerships come to fruition.

I could be way off, but I think NX will struggle to reach 10M units even if it last 5+ years on the market. This will be Nintendos last platform, both home and mobile markets will be lost, and they will have to go 2nd or 3rd party.

that's because you're a blind hater.

This is getting way, way out of hand. NX topics are poluting the hot topics every time I come on here.


Now that the Wii U is on its way out, expect many more to come...hey, eventually we´ll probably get a John Lucas thread about how the NX will sell 300 million or something.

lol at Wii U being on it's way out. I didn't know a console could be on its way out while still getting the same first party support as always and having no successor announced.

I'm sorry but this reeks of an alt account. Coming in with 7 posts and getting snippy with posters? Yeeaaah.

Look at the strategies behind all of the consoles, find the pattern, then consider what Nintendo will do with NX.

They were all traditional consoles, and declined in sales from the predecessor. Wii took the world by storm with waggle, but once people stopped caring about that after only 4 years, its sales fell off a cliff. WiiU had Nintendo going back to being a traditional console and, well....you see the trend continue. 

NX will have to do some obscure thing that'll make people say "I wanna play this way instead of with just a regular controller" because traditional gaming is, and has been, on the decline for Nintendo home consoles. 

*snip* Hi I'm Zero and I LOVE the Ouya!



If history repeats itself, the NX may be Nintendos highest selling console ever.

How exactly?

Because the quoted post was nothing more than playing the victim card. Besides, the facts you presented aren't an uninterrupted sequence, so the point you brought up isn't even good to begin with.

"I am right, if you exclude everything that contradicts my point."

That's not a good way to go about it.

You guys really need to stop with the "stop discounting the Wii when looking at Nintendo's future" talk.  It's not happening, again. Not for Nintendo.  Not for Sony.  Not for MS.  The Wii was an anamoly.  A console that was bought mostly by people not usually interested in gaming, or as a 2nd console.  The 1st crowd has mostly moved on to smartphones/tablets.  The Wii U was an attempt to tap into that crowd, again, and proof it isn't happening.

From now on, Nintendo is going to have to tap into the core market.  One that Sony, as long as they don't make a mistake, seem to have on lock.  And one that MS seems to also be able to garner a sizable following from.  If Nintendo is going to try and bring in more casuals, they'll need to focus on handheld gaming next gen.

 



Without knowing anything about the console its hard to say.



I'm sorry, but if you truly knew how these things worked, you would know that a sample size this small is not conclusive at all on there being a "trend." A large number of things happened within each of those time frames (the generations). You can come up with plenty of reasons why you see a decline in sales. Someone earlier provided a similar graph for Playstation and said that since this was the NX that it was off-topic, but actually I think it SHOULD be discussed. You may be talking about Nintendo, but the core of the discussion is the graph you're using to back it up. If someone brings up a similar one, you cannot just dismiss it because it isn't 100% on topic with Nintendo.

Furthermore, ignoring the Wii because you think it's an outlier shows that you don't truly understand this discussion yourself.
