Forums - Nintendo Discussion - It's still not game over for nintendo in console market.

You know funny enough, Wii U's failure might be Nx's boon.

Imagine for a moment that NX, is indeed N cross and that two platforms are launching, one first(handheld) one later(console). Now they essentially big brother and little brother console, one more powerful than the other but share the same genes, for lack of a better word.

They wont share the same libraries, but have a few similar titles. Like for example, Mario Kart can be released on the platforms, one 720p, the other 1080p, and can be played together, can share data. They will have their own libraries of other unique games, but there will be special crossplay type games like these.

And another way they 'cross' is 'Wii U' functionality. essentially dual screen gaming and backwards compatibility for Wii U games, and to interact in other ways(streaming content from the big bro NX maybe?).

Just to clarify though, I'm saying the NX is not a handheld or console, but a siamese twin deal, a Wii U essentially but split up.  Each their own thing, but can be combined and share alot,but the handheld will launch first with the console coming a bit later.

Well I dunno, but I'll bookmark this in case it does pan out with an I told you so.

I agree 100%

Nintendo needs new management, a fresh start that is willing to take in new ideas.

Well, you're not in charge of Nintendo, and I highly doubt you could do a better job.


now i never claimed that i could, right? but it doesnt take a genius to say that if a company is having a massive failure, and things are only getting worse, then the bosses around there need to change. 

By that logic, Iwata would be in neutral, don't forget he led Nintendo to own the 7th gen. And for all intend and purposes, Nintendo is in green again, so the man is clearly doing something right.

past success's dont matter much when there is a big streak of failure. The WiiU and the company shows to be losing ground to their rivals. they had to take some desperate measures to get back into the green. licensing their IP's to various things just to be profitable again. and of course Amiibo, which is a great business decision, but one has to ask, if they keep losing market share and interest in their main business which is gaming, how long is Amiibo going to last?

 

their core business, which is making games, is falling apart. their handheld business, while still chugging along, isnt what it used to be. remember that they had to slash one third of the 3DS's price after just 6 months at launch to make it viable. The WiiU was dead on arrival. their relationship with third parties is non existant, their hardware was outdated at launch, and their first party shows no signs of being able to hold Nintendo on thier own. 

 

This E3 shows exactly just how out of touch nintendo are with their fanbase AND with the gaming community as a whole. the writing is on the wall. nintendo needs to change, nintendo needs to get better, and nintendo needs to improve. if you think im trolling by stating the obvious, well then i guess we are done here. 

I'm sorry for swearing before.

But I still disagree. It only takes 1 correct try to turn around the whole market, we've seen this before and it can happen again.

Gamecube was no more a failure than the original Xbox was, and the Gamecube was far more profitable than the Xbox was.

But it didn't sell much.

With tears in my eyes I have to agree, at least now.

He has to change a lot of things, starting with greenlighting great ambitious games.

Him, Miyamoto, and Aonuma, they all need to fuck off and retire.

They are all liabilities, old farts so out of touch with the modern gaming market that they're dragging Nintendo into irrelevance.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
