"Nintendo should abandon one of the fastest selling systems in history and go third party", LMAO.
That would be suicide for them, the market cannot support three similar systems to succeed, it never has. Going head-to-head with PS5 would be the Gamecube all over again. Nintendo succeed when they carve out their own niche instead of trying to be just be another Playstation/Xbox.
I'd actually be curious if the answer changes if Sony or Microsoft drop off. If there was only a Playstation or only an Xbox, could Nintendo try a power approach again?
I adore my Switch and liked my Wii U (got plenty of use from it), so I have no problem with the current status beyond third party behavior.
The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?
