Nintendo: Smartphones have 'raised the barriers' on software quality

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata says that the low prices of smartphone games makes it harder to sell consumers on full priced retail titles, thus influencing them to make their games better as a result. (3DS, Mobile, Nintendo, Wii U)

i dunno about that man, monolith x looks like a quality title and so does mario kart.

Just watched the monolith x trailer im not really a nintendo fan but that game looks like a mecha monster hunter on a massive scale.

Ill be watching that one.

Mobile at E3 was almost entirely ignored the entire time. Booths had "mobile games" areas with tablets set up etc, and while people were standing in hour long lines to play console titles, these areas were entirely empty almost every time I walked by. Sometimes someone would walk up, touch them for a few minutes, then walk away.

Thats the thing. I don't see why these comparisons are always made. I'm a gamer, I buy console titles, I buy mobile games here and there. Would I pay more than a few dollars for one? NO. Would I trade in my console for an iPod? No. Would I trade in my phone to get a PS4? Actually thought about doing it....

How old/young is the smart mobile gaming "trend/boom" anyway?

Was Angry Birds the fire starter?

Snake wasn't really it right?
Soldierone  +   385d ago
It was Angry Bird because Rovio exploded because of it, and thats when "analysts" started going "more people are buying mobile titles!"

The thing is, you are not going to pass up a good game for a 99 cent Snake on your phone.... you pay the 99 cents to pass time while you are not playing the other game.

And you can't really say the industry is evolving, look at the tech out there. Quad core processors etc.... yet none of the game look and play like Uncharted or Assassins Creed on Vita for some reason....

Mobile gaming is important, The future is bright, just last night i was playing GTA Vice City and NBA 2k13 on my galaxy s4, not too mention it almost have a complete collection of emulators . It's not going to replace your PS4/Xbox1 but to Nintendo systems its a huge threat cause Nintendo has always been targetting the casuals, the casuals now love iphones, android, tablets and ipads. Don't think for a second its going to go away, its just going to get better and better. Wii U is the first victim. 3DS is doing great but that's because its cheaper than most smartphones anyway, It's only a matter of time.

99 cents for simple phone game or $50 for a compelling fun, memormorable gaming experience with lots of replay value , ill take the later.
