If focusing on the short term is so great and the only thing companies need, why doesn't everyone do the same? Specially after looking at Switch. Why is that?
Lol, point that everyone else are doing things in difrent way doesnt mean that Nintendos way is wrong way, I mean numbers (hardware and software sales) tells us without doubt that their strategy works for them, from your point you could also said that its wrong way Nintendo releasing hybrid console. From some reason you have hard time accepting that Nintendo is managing things different and that not everyone need to managing things in same way.
Also for instance Sony also talked few months ago how they dont want any more to announce games so much in advance and want to have smaller amount of time between announcing and releasing game.
