Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Generation 9 is already won for Nintendo

Hello friends.

With all the announcements heard today, there is no longer a shadow of a doubt that Nintendo will be highly successful in gen 9.

The greatest wildcards so far were:

How will Nintendo merge its portable and home console software so as to avoid having to ensure momentum on two platforms?

This is now resolved with the merged API and OS for Nintendo's upcoming console platforms.

 How will Nintendo contend with competition from the mobile industry?

Nintendo has revealed that they are already prepping mobile platform starter introductions to their current and new consoles, as well as entering into a whole new business (Quality of Life).

 

With that covered, here is how gen 9 will play out for Nintendo:

  • With R&D expenses unified under one cohesive system of platforms, Nintendo greatly saves on R&D costs and time to market for both platforms.
  • Nintendo games will be sufficient to support the twin systems as of launch, allowing Nintendo to find comfortable momentum from start to finish.
  • Transitions to gen 10 platforms will no longer require two transitions to 2 consoles, the same unified transition will be much better supported by software and community base (unified community base).
  • Nintendo will increase its audience by means of its new QoL business, increasing awareness of its brands and products/services in both businesses.
  • 3rd parties become accessory to Nintendo and the Nintendo dream at last comes true.

Thank you for dreaming, and luckily: we win.

or it could go completely the oposite...who knows...the market is a lil bitch and in such a volatile environment things should not be taken for granted



@Jizz. I can taste it, the sweet taste of victory.



Third parties will still support the Playstation 5/XBox Two instead. So no.

It will help Nintendo (having a more unified hardware strucutre) but it's not a silver bullet.

Please read OP. 3rd parties are no longer needed if Nintendo unifies its libraries.

Matter of fact they are already borderline irrelevant for Nintendo's business success.

Joke's on you.



If Nintendo merges their portable and home console what does that mean for third parties?  Sounds like they are gonna be pushing them away even more since third parties would have to make their games run on both.

3rd parties have made it clear that they aren't interested in developing for a weaker platform.

But regardless, they become honestly a side-concept when Nintendo can dedicate all their dev man-power to one unified platform. It become no contest.
