I think they're fine either way.

The thing about having their own system is that they have a captive audience. They can sell stuff like Star Fox because it's on a system with few games and a lot of people who buy anything with "Nintendo" written on it. Imagine Star Fox in the crowded market-place of the PS4/XO. People wouldn't buy that last game because they would have a lot more options. After awhile, that "buy everything from Nintendo" attitude would fade away.

The big stuff would still sell very well, of course, but the weaker stuff would be dust in the wind.

A third-party Nintendo would cut down on the amount of content they produce by a significant amount. That's not much of a negative, to be honest, especially considering some of the weaker games the Wii U had on offer.

No. Sony and Xbox should instead.

On what ground?

One is the market leader by far, and the other is doing much better than the Wii U.

What threads?

Everyone should just develop for mobile

a game about a the legend of lagoon obviously


don't ask me dumb questions

I'm going to give Nintendo through E3 2018 to prove they have something that people want to buy, before I start calling for them to go 3rd party. But, as it stands today, I would see it as a positive if they announced such a move.
