Has Nintendo Made Its Comeback?

"For the past month, Nintendo has been relatively quiet. With the exception of their big Pokémon X & Y reveal, the company has churned out next to no titles or information about upcoming releases. Comparing Nintendo to the other two major publishers showed that Nintendo was severely lacking in the month of January." | Explosion.com (3DS, Nintendo DS, Wii, Wii U)

I disagree
Quality wise Nintendo came last in the 7th generation!

Wii Sports, Wii Fit, New Super Mario Bros.... LAME! We need more M rated games from Nintendo or its going to get buried by PS4 & 720. That's definitely not happening so Wii U will be the dreamcast of Nintendo and its ultimately its death. I personally cannot wait for the day I can play Nintendo games on my PS4 & high end PC.

Ohh and did I mention the Wii u's graphics SUCK??? The online isn't that good as well, not to mention the controller is LAME because of the positioning of the analogs. The screen on the gamepad isn't even HD so what's the point? Even a 7 year old PS3 has better processing power than Wii U not to mention there's not a single game on Wii U even close to matching the likes of Uncharted 3 and Halo 4. Monolith's new game X looks shitty to the core. Wind Waker HD is played on the gamepad which is not HD so don't let those crooks fool you! Yoshi's Yarn looks like something a 4 year old girl would enjoy. Mario Kart U will be a rehash (quick cash-in) so don't bother.

Um, what? Quality wise, I'm going to say it's a tie between Sony and Nintendo. They both have their pros and cons. Micro$oft came last place, and always will. FPS games aren't quality games, my friend.

yeah because wii sports/fit and mario bros were the only games on wii lol. not to mention, wii sports and new super mario bros were fun and entertaining.

Its ok, keep playing shooters over and over and over with a slight pixel increase every game and a false claim about better AI.

Is your name supposed to be ironic or something, because you talk exactly like your name implies.

First place in hardware sales, not in games. Sorry.

They have the top three best selling games of this generation. Look it up.

@ben_rage_3
sells =/= quality

do you think COD or Wii sport are the best games ever ?!!
thezeldadoth  +   951d ago
actually sales do determine first place or not, sorry. I'm not a huge COD fan, i do enjoy BLOPS2, but the industry is a business afterall. one of my favorite games, Shenmue, will never see a sequel because of sales. Its a fact. Thats why sony scrambled to make the move, microsoft with the kinect, and now they'll both end up with some sort of interconnected tablet devices. Sales matter first, we just hope that the highest quality games sell the best. Having said that, Nintendo won last generation, and is selling strong so far in this one.

Ben, I believe the wiiU is the ONLY next generation console out right now...

@Ezz2013

First of all it's "sales" not sells. And I wasn't making a judgment on anything. @Enemy said Nintendo is only in first place regarding hardware. That is not accurate. I simply stated the facts, sorry. Besides if you want to argue quality, Nintendo also has the top three highest rated games of all time. Look it up if you don't believe me. I'm still not stating my opinion on the matter, simply stating the facts.

It never left.....idiots like this from explosion make things up and believe all the hype.

People like that can't think for themselves they just go on what is " hot "..

Pathetic really.
chadboban  +   951d ago
Um this exact same article with the exact same title was already posted a day ago. Why did this get approved a second time.

IMO.... I'd say it too early to tell. Just as its too early to tell if its a failed console.
But, from the looks of it, it will have more hardcore 3rd party games along with its regular kinder games. The question is will it compete when this generation is in full swing. Time will tell, and nows not the time.
Whitefox789  +   950d ago
I'll have to wait and see if Nintendo gets a strong 3rd party support instead of relying solely on its 1st party and 2nd party developers.
