I think Nintendo should exit hardware all together and create a Nintendo channel. That channel would be an app like Netflix and could be installed for free on any devices consoles/pcs/tablets/phones/smart tvs. They should charge a subscription for people to have their avatar and wander in Nintendo Land or something bigger. There you could buy Nintendo games from all of their past consoles with demos and all, you could play online and all that jazz.
I say this because I respect Nintendo (eventhough I don't buy their consoles anymore) and I think their games are very unique, everyone should be able to play their games. The vg market is becoming more and more spread open and put alongside other services on many devices. People don't want to buy one purpose device anymore and it pains me to see the likes of Nintendo putting non related gaming apps on their consoles, this, to me, takes away money they could put in more games development.
It doesn't bother me if Sony and MS do this because their business covers more than gaming. They also push possibilities in gaming further (don't hate me for saying this, it's the truth) by making consoles that are cutting edge which allows developers to use impressive engines (I hear ya PC gamers but consoles are different) with physics, graphics, control schemes and all. Nintendo thinks different and makes consoles to fit their criteria but by doing this, third parties lose interrest in making games for them. Most of the time they get shoddy ports and/or don't get them at all. In a market that sees development costs rising but also sees an expansion of it's demographic, third parties will try to put their games in as many hands as possible and try as much as they can to lower development costs leaving exotic consoles in the dust. Nintendo makes exotic consoles with non conventional control schemes and power. Third parties rarely use these controls efficiently resulting in bad games most of the time. On Nintendo consoles, people buy Nintendo games for a reason. It's like they release a console only for them not caring much for third parties.
With a channel, Nintendo would always be working with top notch hardware. I don't mean they should go the realistic graphic route. I would like to see what they could to with other devices/peripherals. I would like to see them use Kinect, tablets, phones etc. But they always seem to release consoles that are good for them and them only leaving third parties wondering why they should support these exotic controls when nobody buys their games on Ninty consoles.
What do you think?
