How User Generated Content Can Save Nintendo

OXCGN:

"Nintendo carries itself with a certain level of pride. Take the 3DS for example.

Releasing an entirely new version of the DS for a market increasingly limited by the advent of the smartphone and by the fact that 3D isn’t something that everyone can experience, Nintendo simply sat back and assumed they would be successful as in the past.

As you may recall, this didn’t happen.

In fact, Nintendo reported their first loss in thirty years, with a 3DS price drop soon after.

There’s clearly a problem here, and Nintendo needs to do what they do best: adapt."

The story is too old to be commented.

An interesting take. Honestly, any game can be improved with UGC but I think as the author suggests, Nintendo can benefit from it.

Nintendo will not entirely benefit from it. Look at Sony (LBP being the major example). Despite it being a major part of the game and there are some fantastic levels, UGC is often a feature over looked by many. Should Nintendo do it? Defiantly I think a lot of games need UGC.

Well said. it can help but it depends on how it's promoted. I felt like nobody played lbp2...

Nintendo play their IPs pretty close to the vest. You can bet that they won't allow for user content that strays too far from their image.

Woulf it be nice? yes.
But it won't happen because nintendo is paranoid that if tey let user's do this they will only play that game and not any future sequels (a level editor in nmsb wii would make it possible to make levels JUST like levels from NSMB2 and U in example)

Nintendo doesn't need saving.
very stupid premise for this article.

Hicken1501d ago

I also don't think Nintendo needs saving.

At the same time, though, user-generated content would be a great bonus.
