There are two kinds of people those who love Nintendo and those who don’t. The people who love Nintendo buy Nintendo products without a doubt, every console and/or handheld every Mario, Zelda and Kirby game. Then you have those who don’t buy Nintendo consoles and/or handhelds and miss out on great Nintendo IPs, and are not happy with the way Nintendo expands the market These people are a small part of the market. The following graph will explain why the “hardcore” gamer can’t cope with the success of Nintendo and the downfall of it’s competitors. It also explains where a certain individual stands on the way of becoming a Nintendo follower. There are five phases you can devide the anti-nintendo people in : Number One also known as Shock/Anger. People who can be found at this point in the curve claim things like : The Wii sucks, Nintendo should stop destroying the market and quit the game, People apparently like design-garbage. Number Two is known as Denial. These people don’t believe the situation and claim things like : No way that can be right (*), The numbers are wrong, Overtracked and stuff like that Number Three is Depression. These people have given up all hope, and make some well founded claims : Nintendo is killing gaming. This makes me sick I quit gaming. Number Four is Negotiate/Fight. These people have the biggest mouth of all and make my favourite claims : The Wii is doing ok but the ps1 and ps2 sold way better. Nintendo made less profit this year. In 2009 Microsoft still can take the crown, In 2009 Sony can take the crown, If we see a ps3 pricecut, sonydomination! Just wait for …. <=Insert random game here Number Five is Acceptance. The dark people have finally seen the light! “Hey, it actually is fun, that so many people play games” This process will take years, but eventually these people will join the Nintendo side of life. This may be stolen!
(*) first one who knows where this came from gets a pat on the back!

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.
