Who is Forrester? (not very knowledgeable about research companies as there seems to be hundreds of them)

Good for Nintendo

A research firm that does these types of studies.

They surveyed 7,500 consumers to decipher their annual consumer experience ratings for over 150 different companies. Nintendo wasn't the best rated company out of all they rated this year, but they were the best rated consumer electronics company. I think Verizon was rated higher.

Old News.

Anyone who play games for longer than 20 years know that nintendo has the best experience.

I swear to god , this is no lie.

I have a NES which is still working never broke
A SNES still working never broke
An N64 still working never broke
A Gamecube Still working never broke
A wii stil working never broke (just gave to my cousin but it still works)
A Gameboy still working
A Gameboy color still working
A GBA/SP still working
A DS still working

And obviously my 3DS XL and Wiiu are both from late 2012 and like brand new..

I've owned pretty much evrything Nintendo made apart from Virtual boy got them all on the day they came out (apart from NES , SNES and GB) and they work perfectly.

You can't say nothing about Nintendo's build quality...

Same here.

Actually besides all the ones you said I also got a gameboy advanced, that still works.

By the way my ps3 fried in 2 years. Just saying.

I don't think it has to do with Nintendo in general, all of those devices you listed are cartridge based, so no disc drive or hard drives. Less moving parts = a longer life. My old Atari's still work fine now, and those things are older than the NES (and also cartridge based) :)

Well when there are no good games to play a console doesn't get used as much and it stays like new , lol. I'm on my third PS3 because I keep wearing them down from constantly gaming. I would much rather have the experience of playing the best games on the market than playing casual garbage once a year lol.

Nintendo doesnt make perfect hardware. Heres a list of experiences that i had with gaming hardware.

-Nintendo
1. Never had an issue with the gamecube
2. With the N64 i had an issue with the expansion pack
3. My Wii didnt have any issues
4. I had to return 2 DS lites due to dead pixels
5. My Original DS had a problem with the battery
6. My DSI had no issues

-Microsoft
1. Had 3 RRODS with the 360 (non HDMI fat model but the fat HDMI model didnt give me any issues)
2. Shortly after using the controller the analog stick broke

-Sony
1. Never had an issue with the Playstation
2. Never had an issue with both of my PS2s
3. With both of my PSPs (original fat and slim 2000) i had a stuck Pixel
4. I dont have any issues with my PS3
5. With my Vita i never had any issues

-SEGA
1. Never had an issue with the megadrive 2
2. Never had an issue with the Genesis

All companies can produce defected products even companies that people claim to be perfect like Nintendo and Apple. Whenever you buy hardware theres always a risk that it will be defected its something you have to accept otherwise your stuck with a broken system.

"Sony only cares about graphics or 1000 players in one server with shitty 10 frames a second. Think of a game that isnt one of those"

Uncharted 1, Uncharted 2, and Uncharted 3 are 3 excellent games that combine great gameplay, great graphics and a great story into one package. So sorry you fail. BTW if Sony released games at 10FPS they would be impossible to play and theres no game by Sony that has 1000 players per match.

Sony and many 3rd party developers owned the ludites by proving that it is possible to have a game with excellent graphics, excellent gameplay and an excellent storyline. Any game that combines all three will be much better than a game with only gameplay as a strength.

duh. Micro only cares about their market place and subscriptions to play. Sony only cares about graphics or 1000 players in one server with shitty 10 frames a second. Think of a game that isnt one of those

"Sony and Microsoft were rated as well.

Microsoft was rated “ok” at 74, and

Sony barely missed being classified as “ok” with a rating of 76."

yea Love the way they word that one right there!

yay for hypocrisy

I have been a gamer for over 30 years and have great experiences with both Nintendo and Sony.

Nintendo replaced a new Super NES for free back in '93 and Sony replaced a 3 year old PS2 for free a few years back.

Microsoft though ? Just terrible customer support.
I had 2 new Xbox360s red ring an early model elite and a 2009 arcade model. Microsoft charged me $90.00 to "fix" the elite and would not replace the two month old arcade.

BTW the Elite 360 that Microsoft "fixed" lasted exactly 6 months before it broke/froze.

Sorry if they aren't giving me free games I don't care who says they are nicest, they aren't nice enough in my book.
arbitor365  +   672d ago
im not sure exactly who they surveyed, but no serious gamer is going to tell you that the nintendo network offers better features and better customer service than PSN or xbox live. the very notion is laughable.

with its third rate Eshop, sub par video streaming, lack of apps, and restrictive account system (friend codes with the wii and console locking with the wii u) the nintendo network is universally seen as a joke, amongst gamers.
