A Couple Areas Where I Think Nintendo Is Ahead Of The Curve

Nintendo's latest financial report shows a status that's far from the phenomenon seen during the Wii's glory days, but Gamers Association contributor Ridge Dermody believes the gaming legend is actually doing a few things better than the competition. Do you agree? (3DS, Nintendo, Wii U)

You seem to really only label one area and I can think of better areas than day one releases being released at midnight not throughout the day.....

The Nintendo directs are more of a necessity than "ahead of the curve". Nintendo knows it needs to say X game is coming before being over shadowed by new console talk. I really don't expect there to be much of them in the future unless they don't do well at the E3 conferences

Apart from the OS (which they are working on) Wii U seems like a very appealing system for core gamers.

It will come down to the library and Wii U has a lot of appealing titles so far. I bet you it keeps it up even after the others come out.

Nintendo's been behind the curve since the N64 and their stubborn refusal to adapt to CDs.

Sony and Microsoft got awesome exclusives, but they lack evolutionary drive. They are like cyborgs; a robotic race that can imitate but not innovate.

I want to say you're wrong, but then if Nintendo hadn't made the mistakes they had with CDs Sony wouldn't have come into the industry and built it up more which brought in MS.

This guy is really grasping at straws. Basically it's about announcing games before E3 and the author likes the time of day at which digital downloads are made available.

Truly ground breaking stuff /s

I found this hilarious as hell when the problem with Nintendo and why i dont have a wii u is exactly what you commented. Nintendo rehashes and regurgitates ips over and over again without breathing new life into the industry with new mind blowing games. On the contrary Sony has been innovating and pushing software well beyond any other company and taking risks. I can probably make a long list but ill just make a short one

1)LBP (we all know how this innovated on consoles and has led to millions of user generated levels. Building your own levels to play in on a console innovated and evolved)
2)Lbp Vita-doing that on a console was thought to be impossible.
3)Mod nation racers-Evolving and innovating karting on consoles just like LBP
4)Heavy Rain-Awesome game its literally like playing a movie and took QTE games to another level.
5) Kz, Uc and Gow Took graphics to a whole diff. level and showed developers what consoles were capable of. all these games have won numerous awards with Uc2 winning the most in history.
6) Puppeteer and Tearaway looks to evolve gaming and innovate even more
7) Regardless of what ppl say Res burning skys, COD vita and others also eveolved handheld gaming showing that full mp games are possible on handhelds.
8) Starhawk- Awesome mp with build and battle
9) Journey-One of a kind mp exp and showing companies what an impact indie devs can have on a console

Wow in terms of hardware i can go on and on lol but ill put like three

1) Dual analog sticks (ps controller has won major awards and was the first controller to have dual analogue sticks). If you look up the word innovation and evolving i think that fits right in lol
2) Blu Ray player in console-Furthered the idea that a gaming system can be a media hub as well.
3) True 3d stereoscopic in consoles

I mean i can go on and on...... So your comment to me is baseless and unwarranted!! Oh almost forgot Dual sticks on a handheld and full online integration!!!!

Yeah Sony is a robot that doesnt eveolve lol hahahaha look at Nintendo in that aspect everything isnt about hardware but software as well.
