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?

People didn't want a 3DS they wanted to play 3DS games.

And very much yes, consoles should go obsolete, it's not like they're taking a long time to get there.

Okay can I tell you something, they will, same with Nintendo going third party, just going to take awhile.

Because...?

I haven't made various threads about the same subject on a short time, so please, don't lump it together with anything else, judge it for what it is, and discuss about it.

no no I'm not mad at you, not personal babe. I'm mad at the whole internet, it's a normal thing for me after a Nintendo reveal.

But I want Nintendo to be better and do well...



Yeah yeah ....

Keep your hopes up people but it's not gonna happen.

Damn, at this point everyone should become 3rd party !

How is coughing up revenue to hardware publisher making them do better? Bigger audience? More microtransaction competition in terms of publishers?

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.

Haptic...Thank you someone who gets it ...best comment so far ....just like someone said ....Port beggars ....I've been gaming since the 70s ...these new gamers don't get it ....Nintendo will never consider going 3rd party as long as their software continues to sell ....people....in gaming the money is in the software not hardware ..smh ...when will people realize that ...they profit because their software sells ...Nintendo didn't gain them billions in the ds and wii era from hardware it was software ...example 35 million Mario kart games sold ..wii sports ,80,000,000 sold ,all first party 100 percent profit...every generation they make a profit because of software and peripherals.....not hardware

I want them free and crazy and not tied to others, for each "Arms" and each "1.2" switch we have a xenoblade and breath of the wild. Without their freedom we would have a bunch of new super mario bros wii and a bunch of twilight princess.

well maybe we have different perspective, and I apologize.



It won't happen, but it doesn't mean their games still won't be as good as ever. But let's face it, heartbroken Nintendo fans would shun the games because they don't have a console of their own. It would be the Sega effect all over again.



A very large chunk of Nintendo's profits were made in the console business. I don't think they'll stop anytime soon. (Unless Switch super terrible).

Either way, I don't want them to go 3rd party. I want them to make much need restructuring efforts in their company and be successful again in the hardware business.

I always had the feeling that their software would decline if they moved to 3rd party development. I know a lot of people who share this sentiment as well.

So you are the one addressing doom and gloom? Then follow your own advice and stop it.

Yiu ask people to stop doing something they are not doing while being the one doing it, maybe you should use a bit more of that thing called brain.

Yes i am saying when posts like this and comments come,that is doom and gloom in my book,it's not a Win Win for them to got Third party like i said in my coment shit ton of stuff isn't accounted in your post.

Sony has more chance to go third Party then Nintendo and i Love Sony more then all other companies combined.

It's okay to point out things you think the OP lacks, but I've never said Nintendo needs it to survive, just pointed out I think they would be better doing so, so they should do it, obviously disagreeing with me is the right of people reading it, but I never doomed anything, at all.

They don`t have money to last until 2050. They have money yes, but how long it will last for depends on how much of it they spend... and even more importantly, how much of it their investors will let them spend. It could last until the year 3000, or they could blow it all in a year (that one be one great party at Nintendo HQ for a year though! )

They aren`t making money from every console sold. Firstly, I haven`t heard anything to suggest that the Switch will be selling for more than it costs to make, but even if it does that still doesn`t mean they are making money. There are a whole lot of other costs to consider other than basic material costs and shipment, the marketing budget for one, the years of R&D for another. The Switch will start with quite a significant net loss (as every console does) and until they can clear that amount they won`t really be making money from each console sold.

As for games, they don`t even get 100% revenue, let alone profit. Retailers take their cut, taxes take a cut and games do cost money to make as well. As for 30-40% of third party games (what third party games? ), I very much doubt it`s anywhere near that high. Probably more around 10-15%.

And Amiibos? Yeah, they`ll make money from them but just like the software the point isn`t that they could make money by going 3rd party, it`s that they could make more. They sold a lot of Amiibo`s when only the small number of Wii U owners could use them, now imagine how much more they could have sold if games that utilised them were playable by the billions of people that own a PC or phone or something.
