Why The Nintendo Holiday Is Boring, And Their Future Looks Scary

"Whether most of us (myself included) want to admit it or not, Nintendo has been flailing on the scene as of late. The lack of compelling Wii U software have gradually influenced the deflation of units sold throughout 2013, and with only the 3DS to shoulder the weight, it’s been a frustrating waiting game for those who have endorsed in the promise of the Big N into the next generation. Nintendo hasn’t been completely deaf to their situation though, and during a press release yesterday, made several announcements towards release dates, price drops, and their newest revision of the 3DS for the budget-minded consumer, or parent…and one has to ask if Nintendo has thought this all the way through?

The way I see it, it seems like it’s just more pandering in disguise, and pandering is one of the biggest factors that lead them down to this path to begin with."

Wii don't really want Wind Waker HD.
Wii played that on GameCube.
Wii want the Zelda HD shown in E3 2011.
That's what Wii want.

The game X and Bayonetta 2 looks great, wii need more of that as well.

Now before a bunch of Nintendo fanboys come here, disagrees with me and all.
I'm telling people what I want, I'm being honest with Nintendo.
At least I have the decency to tell them what they need to do in order for the Wii U to become a success.

Say what you want, but if you keep defending Nintendo for all the bad choices they make, then they'll never change, even their fails won't change because they would assume they're doing it right.

It's time people stop acting like fanboys, and start acting like consumers.
You, are the one who's supposed to tell the companies what You want, not the other way around.

I believe most people are tired of the same looking Miis that haven't evolve at all.
How is anyone supposed to be exited for the Wii U's Miis when they already got that on the original Wii. Think about it.

I'm pretty sure there's going to be a ton of disagrees, but unlike you guys, I WANT Nintendo to succeed, That's why I'm being honest with them and telling them what most people want.

If you want to act childish and disagree with me, that's fine, unfortunately for Nintendo, they'll never really know why the Wii U failed this generation.

"Wii" speaks for you not all of us. Windwaker is my most anticipated game this year even tho I already played it.

Your complaining about the Mii's really? have you been on the Miiverse? have you seen how diverse they are? They are supposed to be simple caricatures. Did you know know Microsoft plans on keeping the same Avatars for XboxOne (they all look the same unless you buy accessories for them but I guess they are made up of more polygons so you approve. Of all the things to complain about :[

I myself bought a WiiU, damn stupid Idea. I didn't know it would be shunned by so many 3rd-party devs. I got it for Bayonetta and the next Zelda.

Like many say, Nintendo does not include the community when it builds its hardware. So really nothing was developed ahead of time to take advantage of its hardware.

Nintendo is like Apple, they don't stray that far from the formula not to stir up their fanbase but at the same time they are being left behind.

Stubborn company and the hardcore fans allow this.

BullyMangler1184d ago

If i buy a system is for exclusives, not for games like GTA V or Madden or any other type of EASY game that any monkey could have imagined.

exclusives exclusives exclusives . .

Wow, the 3DS is the best selling handheld bar none, Sony has nothing on Nintendo in the handheld market. If Nintendo knows how to do anything right, it's working with handhelds. The 2DS is a great idea as it allows more people to jump into the handheld who maybe either thought the 3DS price was too steep or didn't believe in the 3D functionality.

As for the Wii U, the author forgot to mention Sonic Lost Worlds which is shaping up to be the best Sonic game in a long time. He mentions Donkey Kong being too "faithful" of a sequel and uses that in a bad sense. If the previous game was fantastic, then build on that, don't change it. Mario 3D World will be a huge stepping stone in the Wii U sales department, watch how well this game will sell in Japan for example. Then he brings up Mario Kart and tries to put it down. Does the author realize that the previous iteration sold over 30 million copies??

In the end I put this article somewhere between complete BS and head scratching. The author doesn't do a good enough job proving their case, all they point out is a few flawed points and assumes they are getting their message across.

If anything, this Fall/Holiday and 2014 is what will ultimately save the Wii U and prevent it from being a huge disaster. And the 3DS will be fine, it's been rock solid to this point, with tons of support from devs, something the Vita has sorely lacked.

falcon971184d ago

Mario 3D world

mii-gamer1184d ago
