Nintendo has issued a response to the latest NPD report.
If anything is for sure, it’s that the 3DS is living proof that Nintendo has still got it. Now they just need to translate their efforts to the Wii U.
That's because the 3DS has games. Nintendo has already transferred their efforts and that's why they're hitting up indie devs so hard. Unfortunately, you won't see the fruits of their labors until maybe 2014 given that they're pitching to a lot of devs during mid or mid-to-late dev phases. Big 'N' will be all right, though, with both the Wii U and 3DS.
It's astonishing how important both quality and quantity of games available for a platform effect how well that platform sells. Oh, I'm sorry. I meant to say: It's astonishing how many gamers resolutely refuse to accept how important both quality and quantity of games available for a platform effect how well that platform sells. Every time I point out the extreme similarity of the WiiU and 3DS' first years, there's always a significant fraction of gamers ready to chime in, frothing at their collective mouths, declaring "NUH-UH!"
Ya, I totally agree. Nintendo does not seem to realize why the 3DS and DS are so successful. Both the DS and 3DS gave us Fire Emble, Phoenix Wright, Shin Megami titles and much more. The Wii U doesn't really seem to be giving really anything off aside from 3rd party games that I can honestly already purchase on my PS3.
Hand-Held Nintendo is the Best Nintendo.
Nintendo has been king all these years not just hand-held . GC better games with higher re-play value over sony N64 trumped ps1 same reason, cooler games with higher-replay value wii over ps3 with less power and has game-CHANGING games with more Adult content on the kiddy wii than any game in the history of gaming over ps3 360 cool huh and on and on and on the kings continue to trump and stomp ... .
Don't forget about the Virtual Boy, a true visionary in every field it tackled.
I like Nintendo as much as anyone, but in response to this kind of fanboyish nonsense there's not much else for me to say other than this. You are full of shit.
(Qrphe) oh yea huh the virtual boy and the Power Glove . virtual boy = Oculas Rift VR HeadSet, ane Power glove = wait for it (; (Canary) facts of pain eh
"Nintendo has been king all these years not just hand-held" I agree, the king of The Mushroom Kingdom as well, very true, hahaha, didn't Virtual boy flopped? Lol, not everything Nintendo does is brilliant & successful. "GC better games with higher re-play value over sony" Oh yeah? jumping on turtles and saving the damn princesses has more replay value, how awesome. And how come GC only managed to sell only 21m systems lacking 3rd party support instead of Sony 150m+ systems sold with lots of 3rd party support, even the original Xbox outsold it, nice try princess. "N64 trumped ps1 same reason, cooler games with higher-replay value" Yeah unhuh, cool story bruh, and still sold less with only 32m with no 3rd party support, once again, with a tech that lacked CG graphics, once again, nice try princess. "wii over ps3 with less power and has game-CHANGING games with more Adult content on the kiddy wii than any game in the history of gaming over ps3 360 cool huh" Wii HAVING More adult content? Lol sure, do you really live in planet Delusion of how delusional you are. The Wii was nothing but a wake-up call because they knew if they kept focusing on their fanbase, they probably would of only supported handhelds by now, and succeeded because of a market fanbirds like you were not part of, which is the casual market, while you ladies keep playing the same old game franchises since 1985, no wonder 3rd parties do not support Nintendo & their fans, even Nintendo knows how stupid their fanbase are, want a rose? Lol, facts & false are not the same thing child.
(Tito) (: i tried to read your essay but i came across too much saLes this sales that :/ so you are saying Justin Bieber deserves more plaques of goLd because of all the plastic gallon milk drinking hypnotized fangirls who bought his albums? (; facts facts facts.. . .
"i tried to read your essay but i came across too much saLes this sales that :/" Yes, but not only I mentioned sales, I also mentioned 3rd party support, which Sony has being having over Nintendo since the PS1, something your company of choice really lacks, why? because you Nintendogs buy nothing but 1st party games, same old crap, & does not appreciate other 3rd party games unless it's an exclusive, if I buy a Nintendo console, is because of 3rd party games, not their old tiring franchises. Since you mentioned Justin Bieber, you must be his fan as well, you fanboys are the videogame version of the so called "BELIEBERS" because of all the utter same crap you guys all like, that's how hypnotized & stupid both Nintendogs & Beliebers are, you a fan of both, which makes it a total different creature, a Nintendo Belieber, lol. False, False, False ;)
nope sorry tito you bring too much yapping not gonn read you :/ make it short and fact < thanks (:
"nope sorry tito you bring too much yapping not gonn read you :/ make it short and fact < thanks (:" Sure while you bring too much monkey crap out of your mouth for being misinformed, & your welcomed Ms. False ;)
.. . poor tito
I think they will start to focus more on Wii U and leave the 3DS on cruise control, they righted the ship, lowered the price, released the bigger system, got the online/download service up and running and released some really GOOD games and cleaned up the shovelware. Once they get the games flowing on the Wii U , maybe lower the price, sell some systems that should get some of the 3rd parties back in interest
I like what there doing. the best part about the 3ds is it has some cool different games. Nintendo's already said they are working on 15 unheard of titles or titles that can't talk about with companies coming out with there new systems. I have a feeling Dual Screen gaming is about to take off. But the next games coming out for the system if marketed right can drive sales for a while.
With the economy sucking balls the 3DS is going to sell a lot more. The economy is going to get worst.
That's an understatement.
With pokemon coming 3ds is on fire lol cant wait.
I've always seen Ninty as the good guys of gaming so their success is pleasing to me.
Wow, 830,000 units of New Super Mario Bros U sold so far. That's like 25% of the install base of the Wii U. Those are impressive numbers.
New super Mario Bros U sold over 2.6 million back in March Lol. That number is just got a specific time period
