Forums - Nintendo Discussion - NX very likely to flop....here is why: (my opinion)

NX or Wii U

NX 80 40.40%
 
Wii U 13 6.57%
 
Ps4. 105 53.03%
 
Total:198

In the end, if it provides profits for Nintendo and allows its presence to expand along with the theme parks, mobile, amiibo, tv shows/films, merchandise, etc., then it's a success. To determine Nintendo's fate with a piece of hardware that not even analysts know about is beyond ridiculous. That's like saying the Wii was destined to fail or that the Dreamcast would help Sega stop hemorrhaging get money before it's too late before they were unveiled or even given a chance to be in the market. It's not all black and white in this industry. Did anyone really think the DS would be what it is today and expand the touch screen gaming that is now the norm in smartphones and tablets or become the second best selling console of all time?

PS3 never lacked third parties. Some games were delayed because the system was difficult to port and optimize. But the thirds were there the whole time. 

No mass effect on ps3, no witcher 2, no risen, no no no

No system is going to get every third party game. The fact that you can enumerate a few means it wasn't that bad.

I hope the NX flops, Nintendo needs to feel the rage from us faithful fans.

Why!? Because they didn't stick to Wii U for another 2-3 years in which they would had huge losses and become very relevant!?

People need to be realistic, Wii U is faile, its worst selling Nintendo console ever, Nintendo gave full support 3-4 years, but its time to move forward.

really? huh. Can I get a link to where published said they would bring every game to the NX?



psn- tokila

add me, the more the merrier.

I don't get the poll. NX or Wii U what?

Being a Nintendo fan is so stressful nowadays. Maybe Nintendo should really stop making hardware after all. The company is just too quirky for its own good (at least for the western market).
Not showing the NX at E3 is a terrible decision. Nintendo directs or some other Nintendo exclusive events just don't get the same attention from the media.
NOA and NOE need to guarantee that franchises such as FIFA, Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto appear on the NX. And maybe even get some exclusive content on it. They should not be afraid to showcase and advertise titles with "mature" content. Third party "dudebro" games are very important for a gaming console's success nowadays. These are the games that the average owner of a gaming console in the West expects to play.

I say that and I believe everything I say. Because to compete you need a competitive product.

Sony are targeting people, so who are Nintendo targeting then...?

Nintendo fans.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

You must have a weird view of Nintendo fans...

It'll flop if it's expensive or lacks support, both are unlikely now with Nintendo having the chance to catch up to 8th gen (PS4 and XBO at least, their second sku might be over that, but at least with the Neo it's clear PS4 games will still be the standard), so Nintendo would have to really screw up this time over all over again.

So either the PS4 power is just too big to go against, like the PS2, that doesn't matter what others do, nothing changes, it just gets all the attention, than yeah, it might flop, if not, it might be successful, won't beat the PS4, but it might still be successful.

Do you really think power is the only thing keeping third parties away?

Where did I ever said that?

Of course a weak hardware might be prohibitive, but I never said it's the only reason.

But with similar hardware we have bigger chances of multiple versions of third party games.

In the first years it didnt had that good support. Sony just invested Money in marketing, made the system cheaper, hired more developer, made good exclusives and so on to help the system selling and stop third partys to jump off board.

PS3 never lacked third parties. Some games were delayed because the system was difficult to port and optimize. But the thirds were there the whole time. 

Many 3rd parties threatened to abandon the PS3 unless it cut price and got sales up and lots of games become 360 only for up to a year as they waited for the PS3 to increase in sales.

You said that its unlikely that it will lack support due to Nintendo catching up to the 8th gen in terms of power...
