Nintendo Needs to Stop Caring About What Other People Think

J.P. Corbran: ''As if the future was too bright for Nintendo’s new console, we learned this week that Ubisoft delayed Rayman Legends, its seemingly high-quality, Wii U-exclusive platformer, seven months to port it to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Judging by the reaction on our own forums and across the Internet, this was a punch to the gut for Wii U owners, and for Nintendo itself.

We’ll likely never know the events that led to this decision, the internal thinking at Ubisoft, or how much Nintendo knew and when. All we know is that the Wii U’s already weak first quarter just got a lot weaker, and there doesn’t seem to be anything Nintendo could have done about it.''

this is great for gamers, because the only option for Nintendo is to go all out on exclusives like Sony did for the PS3.

Dylila1262d ago

well isnt that the problem really. they have stopped caring and are doing what they like.

zerocrossing1262d ago

It's only a problem if you don't like what they are doing though right?

For those who are getting what they want out of Nintendo it's a good thing.

AsheXII1262d ago

that is completely untrue, as seen by the latest Nintendo Directs filled with content for the future as well as fixed and enhancements to the Wii U experience. I don't think they can stress that more than they already have.

RustedMan1262d ago

What a ridiculous article.
Nintendo has shown, this generation more than ever, has shown complete and utter ignorance.

Divine1262d ago

to stop caring about what others think would make no sense, you have to consider what other people think in order to come up with games that people actually like and will make sales

SuperShyGuy1262d ago

It's not a problem for those who like Nintendo's approach to games.

Right now people care more about CoD so everyone tries to make the games similar to that RE, MoH, ect all tried to take a page from CoD.

Nintendo doesn't care what the popular trend is they just make games they think their fans will like.

Uhh..Nintendo doesn't care what we think. It's only weird people online who say that.

Nintendo knows what they are doing.

While everybody else worries about what is "hot " and actually listens to their idiot shareholders, Nintendo just does what they do....quality

people need to chill out, im just excited about bleeding next gen graphics (ps4 ) as the next guy, but nintendo has some of the best games you will ever play, like mario, zelda, metroid, starfox ext.

"I think it’s time for Nintendo to embrace the fact that people buy Nintendo hardware for Nintendo’s own software. It should stop holding back its own development to make room for third party-support that will never come, and instead blow everyone away with the sheer force of its own weight."

Couldn't have said it better myself!

Starfox171262d ago (Edited 1262d ago )

Well said i'd rather 25 1st and 2nd party games a year and just 3rd partys that want to work on wiiu their games as well.

arbitor3651262d ago (Edited 1262d ago )

its delusional to think that third party support is not necessary. lack of third party support is what sank the N64 and gamecube in sales. nintendo exclusives, no matter how good they are, are not enough to sell anything more than 30 million consoles or so.

they only reason the wii got by without third party support was because of a casual motion control craze. and even though it sold more units, it was still the least played console of last generation.

there is NO casual craze, this time around, and that is why the wii u sales have flat-lined and there is zero demand for the console. and even if new SSB and zelda games sell millions of consoles, you are still only going to be looking at sub 30 million lifetime sales.

arbitor3651262d ago

like I said, there is no casual craze this time around. nintendo land doesnt exactly have the same "pull"

WeAreLegion1262d ago

That's because it sucks. If they had done something as good as Wii Sports...it would have sold.

YoungPlex1262d ago

I agree it would be delusional, but that isn't what the article is necessarily suggesting. What the author is saying is that Nintendo should just focus on exclusive first and third-party software, such as Bayonetta 2, Lego City, The Wonderful 101, Zelda, Metroid, etc., which I totally agree with. Sure multiplats are cool, but what's even better are third-party exclusives on Wii or Gamecube such as Star Wars Rouge Squadron or RE0, RE Remake, RE4, No More Heroes, etc.. I'm well aware that some of these titles went multiplat but they were exclusively designed on Nintendo consoles and were amazing!

khowat1262d ago

Third party support is necessary, but the wiiu is not going to get it and it's already out soooooo... might as well do the best with what you have

ShaunCameron1262d ago

Nintendo will get some 3rd-party support. Just don't expect it to come from Westerners. Besides, the publisher that delayed Rayman Legends was Western.
