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.

So it would be as easy as making a powerful console to get every core gamer back?

If they had more power they'd probably get a lot more third party support.

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. 

Remember the gamecube? It's basically as powerful as the wii(slightly less). It didn't do so well. Even though it was powerful, it only sold 25 mil.

 

Then again, times have changed. I guess Nintendo is just worried- they're not idiots, they want to have the most positive outcome. however, they've simply been unlucky in the console race.

 

As for handhelds, they couldn't be doing any better. 3DS is a massive success, so I guess Nintendo is going to aim for a unified library. Should the console fail, they can rely on the handheld.

That may be true, but why didnt the WiiU get the later 360 and PS3 games?

Of course not, I'm not saying that, I'm saying more will leave if they don't do something.

A lot of people I hear on forums bought a WiiU and felt like it didn't leave up to their  expectations. They won't buy an NX if they feel it will be an obsolete system

Again, I don't know if you read me, but I'm not saying the NX should have great specs. I'm just saying, be more in the same ballpark,  make it easy for third parties to port their games. 

But yes people won't come back just like that, that's true, but if you don't start somewhere, and don't change something, the NX will sell even worse than the WiiU

Nope, i dont care about graphics to the exact to be mad about it, obviously i dont want Nintendo to go  back to NES visuals but hopefully you get my point.

We have seen with Wii & Wii U that Nintendo has been able to release amazing & beautiful games without having hardware on par with the competitors.

Games like Mario Galaxy, Prime 3, Twilight Princess/Skyward Sword, Endless Ocean looked great upon release and games like Mario Kart 8, Xenoblade X, Captain Toad, Woolly World look great.

I personally do not want Nintendo to go into a power battle with PS/XB because im a strong supporter of a unified platform where the handheld & console share the same library. In theory, this should help Nintendo release quality games in a more timely manner and that is far more important to me than being powerful.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Perhaps people like the good games they consistently put out, you dont need high end specs to make a good game. Nintendo dont need power, they wont even get good third party support even if they have the specs. What Nintendo need to do is continue to make great games, but at a faster pace to avoid droughts. Hopefully this is something they are addressing with their unified library.



Because games > resolution.

Nintendo just needs to not have game droughts.
And a cheap unit price, and it ll do fine.

How exactly do you know "a lot of their core fans left"? Plenty of people could have owned a gamecube because it was cheap and had a few games that were interesting to them. I wouldn't call these people core fans. Plus Nintendo was losing fans before this.

Also, caring and not caring are not some binary. If many core fans stayed for the Wii and Wii U I can't see why they wouldn't stay for the NX if it were only as powerful as the PS4. Nintendo fans are fans because they like Nintendo's games. I personally am primarily a PC gamer these days, but I still bought a Wii U and 3DS because Nintendo games entice me, even if I have to see aliasing while I play them.



No they haven't you have just gotten older and think Nintendo should throw aside their family values
