Forums - Nintendo Discussion - What is success for wii u?

Tagged games:

Around the internet I slowly see extremely mixed opinions from nintendo fans who usually used to unite on opinions.

Some who complain about the lack of third party support on wii u, some who say third party don't really matter to nintendo.

Success for nintendo is whatever makes them the most money. But what about the nintendo fans/some of you guys?

Is success being once again no. 1 selling console of the current generation? Or maybe for some success is Nintendo rekindling their relationship with third party devs and securing more multiplats? Or do you regard success as nintendo's first party operations being strong enough so that they make as much money without even needing the third parties or strong hardware sales?

People are currently calling PS4 a success because it has sold the most consoles this gen in the fastest of time and had the biggest sell-through to consumers at launch (1million units in USA alone), but they haven't exactly had breakout success in the number of first party releases, or even sales for their first party games (Have been good, but nowhere near amazing). They do however have strong third party support to offset that, and they could earn money by lifting their feet up more so than nintendo*

*What I mean by that is that third parties have had alot of success on PS4, that essentially ps4 is making a lot of money from third party devs than nintendo is.

So what do they need to do for you to claim "This console is officially a success"?

Also, we're not shareholders, but we are stakeholders, so while shareholders would say "Make a billion dollars and you're a success" as gamers we're not usually interested in the financial hoohaa's, more so how the perception of the console is and how well it sells/how good are the games.

Being an overall profitable console for Nintendo and give the fans great games...

Only one is true so far...



I say if it sells close to 20 million or more while being profitable and giving the fans the games they want to the best of their abilities is what I would call a success at this point.

I think the bare minimum for the Wii U to qualify as a success would be to have enough good games to make fans happy, make a profit or at least break even and to have a succesor.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I personally will buy a Nintendo console even if the only games on it are Nintendo games. Why? Because I personally value Nintendo games so much that I will pay $300 + cost of games to play them.

As for whether or not Nintendo is a success, that is only measured by Nintendo, and if one learns basic economics one learns that firms are profit-maximizing entities, because their entire benefits are measured in profits, and therefore Nintendo is successful if it maximizes profits. Since Nintendo is maximizing profits to the best of their ability, considering their predisposed environments, either outside influenced and self-induced, I consider them successful. If Nintendo were to have losses, as they were until months ago, then they are unsuccessful.



Make Money, Have Great Games.

But ideally, 35M lifetime. at least
