Most likely the wrong thing.

2) Sometimes not being original isn't exactly bad

3) Fans won't care for Amiibo as long as they continue to give useless content.



12/22/2016- Made a bet with Ganoncrotch that the first 6 months of 2017 will be worse than 2016. A poll will be made to determine the winner. Loser has to take a picture of them imitating their profile picture.

The GameCube should've taught them that lesson. Haha

This is Nintendo. I don't expect them to learn from shit.

And the N64! It's a lesson they should be familiar with.

But, I think they already knew that, and it was just too far out of their control.



The main lesson Nintendo should have learned with Wii U is that marketing strategies are very important. They're not Apple. No one will know or care about their products if they're not pushing brand recognition AND showing why people should want an NX. But it looks like some of their announcements of greater media co-operation and their mobile strategy shows they did learn this.

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

That they have to watch what other developers and manufacturers are doing so they can implement improvements, innovations, and advancements that others have discovered quicker. Otherwise, you're doing a disservice to your customers and you're making your own product less attractive.

What are the things you expect Nintendo to have learned with the Wii U and therefore be amended when they release their next console?


1) Console name matters, dont have it be easily mistaken for a peripheral device for a previous console.

2) Launch titles make or break a console (this is depending on brand trust).

3) You cannot spend 100$ on the controller, in materials. (not when the others do it under 20$)

4) Game droughts, hurt perception of console.

5) Mario & zelda (new games, not ports or remastered) are needed for each new nintendo console to succede.

They could be in a bubble and probably figuring out a worse thing to make than the gamepad.
