After an awful E3 press conference, Could it signal the end of the big N?
Could it signal the end of the big N? No, it couldn't
They aren't going anywhere. They basically have piles of cash lying around from the Wii. So even if things don't go well with the WiiU they have that and they still have the 3DS.
Lets see some hardcore games big N
They don't have Activision, which I guess could be a god send, saves the Wii U being bludgeoned to death with Call of Duty and Modern Warfare titles
They could have Activision. There's a rumor that they've got Blizzard on board for a console Diablo 3 and an unannounced title. If they've got Blizzard, they've got Activision.
Funny, COD is seen as a bad thing yet it sells and could also be what pulls the Vita back from the brink of failure.
Well... They survived E3 2008...
Of course not. People need to realise that Nintendo has TONS of cash stored after the success of the Wii and DS. Besides the Wii U hasn't launched yet - there are months for Nintendo to announce new games for Wii U. And even if the Wii U starts slow it can still recover (see the 3DS) as I am expecting the Vita to do once Call of Duty and AC are released for it. Was Nintendo's E3 2012 presentation terrible? Absolutely. But so was their 2008 one and they survived. So was Microsoft's 2010, 2011 and 2012 ones and they survived, and so was Sony's 2006 one and they survived. So I say: criticise Nintendo (as I will) because they NEED to wake up. But, understand that they have a lot of life left and give them a chance to actually launch the Wii U and bring out some solid games for it. Also, we do have the 3DS conference later today to hopefully get some positive announcements. New Zelda 3D? Hopefully.
Maybe not gone, but they'll have a hard time matching the wii's success.
Nintendo has such a big grab on the casual market Nintendo isn't going anywhere. They don't need the hard-core gamers anymore.
I really want to see some next gen games running on the Wii U. @contra157 Thats probably true and while Microsoft and Sony fight over the core, Nintendo will just take the biggest market which are the casuals. They did this with the Wii and it worked extremely well for them which is why they are going to repeat the same strategy with the Wii U.
have more faith in them, why repeat the very strategy you swore not to repeat.
If Nintendo are just going where the money is (and who can blame them) then surely that's going against everything Nintendo ever stood for? Just a thought
