You CAN use motion controls in Mario Kart, you certainly don't need to, infact I believe the majority would agree motion controls is the worst control method available.

Maybe the majority that didnt play splatoon.(or newer versions of zelda games). Aiming on motion controls is perfect for me.

That comment was specifically about Mario Kart.

Damn, Reggie went off when listing the industry standards Nintendo has set. People can't deny this. People like to compare Nintendo and Sega and say that Nintendo will "Dreamcast" themselves out of the market but Sega has nowhere near a track record as Nintendo. They'll survive. They've survived this long, they'll most likely outlive all of us on the forum. As long as people buy their hardware and they're making money off said hardware, they'll make hardware.

Yes SEGA does. The thing about SEGA is that their greatest accomplishments are tied to the arcade scence. 

Listen dude, I love Sega but they're no Nintendo. The Arcade scene was short lived in the US, sure it's going strong in Japan but Arcades are really on the bottom of the totem pole right now. We're talking about a company that revolutionized an entire industry and their work is still being copied/implemented in tech today. Sega's nowhere near as wealthy as Nintendo, their IP can't touch Nintendo's, their hardware innovations are second to none. All I'm saying is yeah Sega has done a lot but nowhere near as much as Nintendo has done.

They aren't playing it safe, it works sometimes and it bombs other times. That's how companies grow and stay alive.

But other then the Wii & DS is there any other standouts where taking risks actually worked?

Every home console other then the Wii released by Nintendo has sold less then the previous...

It just feels like ever since the Wii Nintendo have decided they need to "Innovate" and make some kind of change to input and how we play games. To the point that it seems forced. Watching the Switch reveal it just feels like they're trying to recapture the magic-in-a-bottle they hit with the Wii.

There were NES and Gameboy. The thing is, that every time Nintendo did their own thing (whatever it was at any point of time), they've been successful.

Wow I'm amazed. I had absolutely no idea this thing existed. It's really confusing how Nintendo could go from being SO far ahead of the times to suddenly seeming like a company that is having trouble keeping up with the modern world in that regards.

I think tha was part of the problem. Because non of those things when they tred become mainstream successes (ie vidoe image capture, online gaming).

They probably thought it would never take off and stppped trying to puh them each gen.

Sayig all that they should have realised in the gamecube era when xbox online took off that the should be focusing on improving the experince. THis has been frustrating. Taking to long to adopt after something has become mainstream.  

Wii's online was surely an improvement over the Xbox one. Too bad Wii U was a huge step back - I'd hoped they'd be improving upon.

The 80's and 90's you relly never knew when the internet took off. Basically the cost was the issue holding online play back - this did change when broadband internet became available.

Gotta love nintendo fans hiding behind daddy PC in the comments. Just like Sony guys did last gen with valve games and mass effect. "Nintendo has games you can't get on other platforms, I can get everything on PC" Instead of acknowledging Nintendo has bad 3rd party.  Anyways, it would be cool to see them go 3rd party IMO since they're good devs and bad hardware manufacturers.  

Gotta love the constant "Nintendo go third party threads". I've  been hearing this nonsense for 15+ years, and from what I've heard, it's been like that for years before. The fact is that people want their games. They're just upset that they have to buy another console for it. I can guarantee that if Nintendo put out a console similar to the competition with the same features, online, and games. People still wouldn't buy their console s due to brand loyalty. There has always been a "kiddie" stigma behind Nintendo, that keeps people from buying their consoles. I'd compare it to how kids act in school, they don't want to be different and be made fun of, just like people don't want to be made fun of for gaming on Nintendo. Can't tell you how many times I have been treated like shit just because of the video game system I own, like they think they're better than others because of their choice. But you guys have to deal with it. If you want their games, buy their consoles, just like if Nintendo gamers want uncharted or halo, they have to buy those consoles.

Actually Nintendo put out two consoles similar to competition: Gamecube and Wii U - nobody was interested in them.

The motion controls are perfect for Mario Kart. The only controls I've used to play MK since they were introduced on Wii.

Admittedly, he didn't really do a good job defending his position, but he did make some good points. The company has done quite a number of cool innovations for the industry, and if they were to quit the console business, I feel we'd lose out on other possible ideas they could think of next.

I never said they should go 3rd party.  I said it would be cool.  Which it would.  I don't care about Nintendo fortunately.  They should just make a console that should be able to be a primary console for their fans, not for me.  Why would anybody buy a console if there aren't any games to play.  Nintendo guys wait months for a game because of lack of 3rd party.  All I want is for Nintendo fans to get a good console.    I would buy it just to let them know they're meeting standards.  They don't even really deserve a "good job" or pat on the back for having an ethernet port, HDD, analog triggers or meeting a generations hardware standards.

Actually Nintendo put out two consoles similar to competition: Gamecube and Wii U - nobody was interested in them.

The Wii U didn't have a hard drive, 3rd party, an ethernet port, basic online features, a good price point in comparison to the competition based on specs, ect.  Add to the fact the Wii wasn't getting games anymore while the 360 and PS3 were, the launch was bad, Nintendo wasn't putting out games regularly unlike the Wii which got Fire Emblem, Metroid and Zelda in the 1st year.  Wii U was objectively a terrible console in terms of features and consistency of releases, it didn't even get an exclusive Zelda game.  It was nothing like the competition or any Nintendo console before it.  GC was following the decline of nintendo hardware that has happened with all platforms outside of the 7th gen.  It got less 3rd party than the PS2, hell I even think PS2 released as many in house IPs as the GC that gen.  That mini disc stuff wasn't going to beat out PS2.  Anyway, to respond to the Uncharted/Halo comment, I couldn't care less about Uncharted, but I still like the PS4 because it offers lots of non-inhouse releases multiplat or exclusive.  That's why it's selling, the 3rd party games push the hardware.

As long as I keep getting Zelda games, that is all I care about.

If I had to pick though, I like to see their consoles successful. Better for the industry that way.

Umm, what was your point and does it have to do with my comment of Wii U and Gamecube being similar to competition?
