Is Nintendo Done? Everyone Else Seems To Think So

EA Sports software engineer, Johan Andersson says that the Wii U is crap. EA also says that the Nintendo’s newest console can’t even run the Frostbite 2 engine with favorable results. Heck, most of the gaming media thinks that Nintendo is “dead in the water” and that they should pull a Sega and become a software only developer. Well, here are a few thoughts on why Nintendo could be headed the way of Sega and a few thoughts as to why they could be on their way to absolute success.

Verdict: Yes.
But those nice Nintendo ips could go well with PS4 and 720.
And get those Pokemon games exclusive to the Vita. Oh yeah!

That's quite a bit of dreaming there. Nintendo IPs on other systems and Pokémon exclusive to Vita when the 3DS is outselling the Vita like crazy!! The last time Nintendo IPs were on other systems was in the early 80s when they started out and Donkey Kong/Donkey Kong Jr were on Colecovision, Intellivision and Atari 2600. That is not going to happen while Nintendo is selling their own consoles. Just wait until Nintendo's big games start to come out. Sales will go up and the Wii U will do fine. After all it is SIX MONTHS OLD! PS3 and 360 took years to get good games that really made use of the systems. Patience and we'll see what the wii u can do. E3 is going to get Nintendo lots of press when people start talking about their upcoming games and some exclusives like Bayonetta 2 plus unannounced games!!

It's going to be very interesting too after PS4 and 720 are released. They may not sell so hot after all the fans get them before Christmas if the games aren't there, supply isn't there or they keep releasing games on PS3/4 and 360/720. With so many of the old systems selling still convincing people they need a new system won't be easy. Plus the market is a lot different than it was 7 years ago. By then Wii U will be selling better and we'll no doubt here bitchin' about the sales not there and Wii U selling at that point. Plus everything electronic comes out these days and has to be updated like Wii U, apple products etc. No doubt the new ones will too and that will mean more complaining when that happens!!

Another "gamer" that knows nothing of how Nintendo franchises and games work. Without the Ninty hardware, their games become crap. They would lack innovation and imagination. It would then turn into yearly releases of Zelda, Mario Kart and Smash Bros.... it just wouldn't be the same and in the end, their sales would decline until they begin to turn into every other 3rd-party...

you guys think Nintendo could turn things around with a massive promotional push and heavy first party line up and a few 3rd party surprises?

Myst1834d ago

Yes in fact that is what a lot of people would like. Nintendo has quite a few old franchises they could revive like F-Zero for one; and with more third party it would make the system even more desirable.

Dang...i guess the Wii U is done. I think they may need a new president.
