Why should Nintendo be the ones to go third party?

Because they're the ones making hardware people don't want.

I agree, I`ve always agreed. I`d much rather play games on a console that actually has features I want and a reasonable price. I know what I want when it comes to a console and useless `innovation` sure as fuck isn`t it!

That said I`d only be for them going 3rd party if it meant PS/Xbox/PC. If it meant mobile only... fuck that shit!

Which is probably what it means. -_-

Guess 3DS sold nothing after all, also if you are going based user/revenue, Mobile and PC trump consoles in every regard, should consoles become obsolete?

Yeah no,they have money to last till 2050 i watched top 10 Nintendo hidden facts i think the video was called that.

And people saying the console will flop they are making money from every console being sold so losing money yeah no plus they get 100% profit from there own games and 30-40% of other third party games like PS4/Xbox/PC is.

Switch is Japan's wet dream and if the console sells 30+ milion they have achieved their goal plus the money from online that they will put maybe not a lot of people won't pay but there a good amount of people that will.

And Amibos they are making money from that stuff regardless.

And people stop with this doom and gloom Jesus Christ.

What doom ans gloom? Read the OP before posting.

It's exactly doom and gloom it's not a win win situation even if you use a little of that thing called brain.

You would know,that Nintendo would Sink shit ton of their resources too keep their business alive they don't have other Sectors like Sony with their camera division there Movie division and god knows what else and Microsoft with Windows,Surface pro,Cloud or whatever else etc etc.

That would mean shit ton of jobs would be lost because of Restructuring their studios to comodate for other consoles more resources would have to be put to develop games for PS,Xbox consoles and PC a lot more then their own home consoles.

That's addressed in the OP.

1. They don't have direct competition, lack market understanding on building hardware (while they do on software), they keep losing market reach keeping tying their games to their hardware, and have no services built around their hardware to justify it.

Their strength lies deeply on their software, like any third party company.

I'd say MS is on that way now but what would they make? It's all cancelled :P

I always like something new when it comes to games. Having the teraflops, solid (but at times unsecured) online, and games looking good graphically are all the rage, but there should be a place for experiments and taking a different course when it comes to making games. Why can't Nintendo make games like Wii Sports, Wind Waker, Pilotwings, Brain Age, Nintendogs, Rhythm Heaven, etc. along with titles from their prime franchises? I think gaming can reach bigger audiences if given the chance and the industry has to do more than just making a game look prettier.

I truly stand by Iwata's belief that gaming should be fun for everyone. Why not expand to audiences like the elderly, the parents, or those who never touched a controller in general? I think Nintendo can provide that through their hardware and software.

man these threads are annoying lol

I'm not even triggered, but the reasons are so full of bs, this thing is a fantastic machine and everyone is shitting on Nintendo because of a stupid presentation, when we already have more (and better) confirmed games than the launch of wii u, 3ds, xbox, and ps4. I was not bitching and crying when the ps4 launched with fucking knack and killzone. Power? are we doing this again? just look at the form factor mannnn, don't be ignorant mannn... and show me another machine that has all those features and all those games for that price. I know it's the same thing everytime that Nintendo reveals a system but wow, if you don't have compelling arguments and just a bunch of mainstream mumbo jumbo based on less than one day after the reveal just go and play your other machines and let others enjoy this.





For the first time ever I'm considering this as a viable option for them. The last piece of information (or misinformation?) says 3 hours to charge...

Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile

No. Really not.

I mean maybe you want to have your Nintendo games on your favorite system (Play Sta Tion Four or Xbox One) but other than that I do not see any reason to do so.

Nintendo got the games and they are just at another level on that area compared to Sauny and Microsoft)... And they are coming with very good systems; the WiiU was too similar to the Wii at the end and did not really sell that much but overall Nintendo is usually VERY successfull with their hardware on top of their software. So why would they do that; they have a unique position in the gaming console market. 

I'm hyped for the Switch. This system and what they envision for is awesome imo.
