That's saying a lot if Nintendo only does well with games, seeing as they are strictly a game company! :P

'sides, they make a "shit ton" of money now. Seems that markestshare isn't killing off their business, just yet.



                                                                                                             

If NX allows users to put a single cartridge into both home and handheld console (or download the same game for both devices) it won't need to. Something like 25m home consoles + 65m handhelds will ensure healthy profits for Nintendo. And I guess that's what they are aiming for right now.

This is why NX needs to launch with specs that cross completely into 9th gen territory. Nintendo can't expect to launch a console halfway through a generation and be successful within that generation. They need to target PS5/XB2 with this one or they're really screwed.

It's very funny that people keep calling 2016 (minumum release date) as halfway through the gen. It's more than halfway ps4 and xone 5 year cycle, let alone the gen, wich started in 2012.

Sony doesn't do five year cycles. Sony does 10 year cycles, but replaces consoles after seven years on the market. They are one year away from being halfway through the gen.

Marketshare isnt hurting them because Nintendo makes their consoles in the opposite manner as Microsoft and Sony. Strictly affordable.

I don't understand what problem you have with my wording. I'm clearly only referring to Sony and Microsoft as competition, whose gen started in 2013. Even if you were to assume a 5 year life cycle (and I assumed 6), it's still practically halfway through the generation right now. So I don't know what you're trying to prove.



bet: lost

As of now it's not in Nintendo's interest to defeat XB1/PS4 but instead to:
1-fix all the BS they did with the Wii U (and partially with the Wii too);
2-sell moderately well (30-40M units sold would be ok IF it's a home console)

If it shares games with it's handheld counter part? Why would the sales be separate? Obviously Ninty wants majority of the games they make be available to their full userbase. NX home and handheld will not have their sales split because they share the same games. That will make catching them a whole lot easier.

Sounds like the canniablization of the Vita at the hands of the PS3. Its also harder to focus on two platforms when you cannot even arrage healthy third party for one of them.

Vita/PS3 is in no way, shape or form comparable to the proposed idea of a fully unified platform. The idea of NX is a single platform available in multiple form factors similar to iOS or Android. Same architecture, operating system, online infrastructure, account system, API, runs the same engines/middleware that share a unified software library.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

That, too, but then, the PS4 was nearly profitable from Day 1, but already makes Sony more money in their gaming Division than their competitors. :P

But.....

All-in-all, Nintendo will be fine, have been fine, and isn't heading anywhere anytime soon. For a company that's all about gaming, this is very important!



                                                                                                             

No. If it was released at the same time and is similarly powered, maybe. It's too little too late. I just hope it isn't what people start referring to as 9th Gen. It's still WAY too early in this Gen to say the next has started. If it's categorized right, Nintendo will have two consoles this generation.
