Its the same analyst BS, the wii u will be here shortly...........

"trending down 50 percent year over year, and has been for the last 12 months."

 

This doesnt even make sense.....................12 months is not year after year........it was freaking the second highest selling system in 2011 and 1 in 2010

 

Are they going to blame nintendo for microsoft and sony droping sales?



Nintendo are victims of their own success. There was no way they could have maintained 2008, or even 2009-like sales for long. Look at the batshit numbers both Wii and DS HW and SW were pulling back in 2008. The 3DS isn't coming even remotely close to either of those, at least not in the USA.



Proudest Platinums:
1. Gran Turismo 5
2. Persona 4 Arena
3. Wipeout HD
4. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
5. Super Street Fighter 4

We can pinpoint this directly back to the announcement of Wii Fit. That is where the blame squarely lies.

Actually the 3ds has surpassed the ds in every way in every region for the first year.............hardware sales, software sales, speed sales, it doesnt matter...........

 

In 2011 nintendo sold the most hardware and software in the world.

 

 

Analysts have always hated nintendo

“Everybody needs to realize that the Wii software segment is trending down 50 percent year over year, and has been for the last 12 months. That is a massive decline. There’s no way you could not have a decline overall with that big of a decline in that portion of the software.”

The Wii has been a huge portion of this generation's revenue, so of course the Wii decline is going to affect the overall. Nintendo have moved their teams to the 3DS and Wii U and third parties completely dropped the ball with the Wii, so there is no big software left. This is pretty much a no brainer statement.

“Ten years ago, Nintendo largely catered to kids and Nintendo fanboys. There was about a five year period they could expand their market beyond that, and now I think they’re back to the kids and Nintendo fanboys again. It’s not a bad market but it’s not a market that’s going to grow enormously.”

You have got to be fucking kidding me. The 3DS is through the roof right now, and we have yet to see Wii U software. It is conceivable that Nintendo could only end up with Gamecube like software for the Wii U, but to say this now is just ridiculous. Saying stuff like this during a generational transition is just asking to make yourself look stupid.

Well, when Nintendo go under next generation, at least Miyamoto can go work on Angry Birds.

Don't stop doing it.



So it’s Nintendo’s fault if Sony and Microsofts sales are winding down? How does that even make sense?
