Locked: Nintendo has pulled the Ultimate middle finger to their core fans for the last 3 generations.

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo has pulled the Ultimate middle finger to their core fans for the last 3 generations.

Does Nintendo care about their core fans ?

Hulk Hogan voice ( Ohhhhh Yeahhhhhh ) 87 32.22%
 
Hell to the NO 121 44.81%
 
Well to be fair, The Wii ... 62 22.96%
 
Total:270

and people, stop saying fans don't care and still buy the consoles/games.

Are we on VGchartz or what? those 3DS/WiiU sales are not great.

And when the rumors comes, eveybody Nintendo fans is like "yeah, it's going to have more power than a PS4, it's going to kick ass" and when someone say "well those Nintendo consoles have shit specs", they're like "specs don't matter". Let's be true to ourselves, specs matters, they always mattered, they mattered for the Wii and DS too, they had different specs, 2 screens with one touch screen? A motion sensored controller? All those were cutting edge.

Now again, not saying the NX should be a powerhouse like a Scorpio, that would be stupid. Nintendo needs to stay cheap, that 250$ 3DS and 350$ WiiU idea, wasn't a great one. But well it's not hard to make a 300 $ console with the same specs as a One and a nice gimmick for miyamoto and the casuals to be happy. Just don't put EVERYTHING on the gimmick like the way overpriced gamepad that was barely used, or the 3D of 3DS that was well, turned off by evrybody

So, let's do it

1) Why does Nintendo continue to release inferior Hardware, as compared to their competition ?

2) Why are Nintendo fans Not calling out Nintendo on their past history of low end hardware ? Past 3 generations Nintendo has had absolutely ZERO interest in releasing high end hardware.

 

Care to explain. 

Out of curiosity, do you count yourself a Nintendo fan? Do you feel the company has failed you? Or are you upset on the behalf of Nintendo fans? And, if so, why?



Only the Wii was inferior in power. We don't know hat the NX will pack yet but rumors point to it being around PS4 level power. Lastly, considering Neo and Scorpio are part of PS4 and XOne families then NX doesn't have to be that powerful.

"core fans" is the optimal phrase in the title.

Because we care for software? Wii u being weaker than competition irks me just when thinking that I have to spend 300+ euros to buy it while it's on the market for four years/spend as much as I would spend for an xbox one...Thanks to tablet controller...

Now that complaint I can understand.  Weaker hardware should not be as expensive as stronger hardware that has a longer life cycle.  Hopefully Nintendo learned from that mistake.

If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

And shepherds we shall be,

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti. -----The Boondock Saints

Because I don't really care that much about graphics. Graphics don't make games. We're gamers, not graphicers. Which is why I'll support Nintendo until I die. They make fun games that don't need photo-realistic graphics to be fun. Nintendo started out as a company focused on content. The Sega Master System was way graphically superior to the NES but we all know where that went. Same for Wii. And no, this approach hasn't always worked but Nintendo's software always pulls through.

I don't need amazing graphics to have fun. Which ultimately, should be a game's first priority. Iwata said it best. BTW: Proud owner of PS1-4, and Xbox 360. If I want a console with powerful specs, I have either of those to fall back on.



The same question could be asked to Ps4 and Xbox One fans.
PS4 and XB1 were marketed as the 'true' next-gen experience but in reality they didn't offer hi-end hardware. In fact, less than 3 year later a substantial upgrade is announced. That seems quite a middle finger to me.
What about the fact you have to pay for a subcription to play online? Online is free on PC and works perfectly fine, and was free on the PS3. That's nother middle finger to me. And what about M$ forcing early X1 users to buy Kinect only to abandon it 2 years later?

The truth is middle fingers are quite common in this industry.

The title of the thread is a bit out there, but its a valid question.

Yes, but I'm saying a lot of core fans left, and those core fans mattered, and most of the ones that are left and pretending they don't care about graphics are lying. They care.

And ultimately, more will leave if Nintendo doesn't meet them half way.
