I'm not sure if I want to see Nintendo go third-party, but at some point, it just might have to happen.

It would have happen to Sony before Nitendo, as Nintendo's losses are minor compared to Sony's and they are currently worth more than Sony as whole.

Aww look at the article. So adorable.
you know what this is going on the fridge!

You actually put numbers to try and make your nonsense seem kind of legit.
Its the article equivalent to a painting of the family made with macaroni.

Look mom i made a nintendo doom article too!!!

Sorry sonys gaming division has been bleeding far more far longer than nintendos and dont even mention the xbox. If anyones gaming division is in danger its those two not nintendo.

And check the internet today. That big drop of 18% that was reported? Yea it went down to six on the same day, now its back to the norm.

Check in google comparisons of nintendo sony and microsofts profit and youll find a graph that shows who has been in the red longer

Could you link me to any reports or evidence of the stock prices for Nintendo going back to normal?
That would be a breath of fresh air and a worthwhile report to put up.

Financial game over? That's stretching it a loooooooot.

Good grief. Another "journalist" who has no freaking idea what they are talking about.

Seriously, what happened to quality journalism? Did the invention of WordPress just kill quality?

pat_11_5912d ago

What qualifies you to be an expert on what constitutes journalism? I'm curious.

Did you actually read the story, or at least glance at the first paragraph before completely discounting it?

I cite facts, conducted research and put a fair amount of work into this article. Nintendo isn't going anywhere any time soon, but the company needs to change its business practices now before it's too late. That is simply all I'm saying. Even blind fanboys like yourself will need to come to that realizations soon.

Also, just so you're aware, while Wordpress is a free platform for blogging, many mainstream media organizations have started using it as their primary back end because it's so versatile and simple.

Well written but not much in it others haven't stated. I happen to disagree with a lot of it though.

4logpc912d ago (Edited 912d ago )

Yes I read the story. I don't make such claims unless I am going to take the time to read it.

Suer you did some research on how much Nintendo is worth as a company, and what their loss was for 2013, but that is obviously where the research stopped.

You suggestions make little sense considering what you say here:

"The company has a ton of money in the bank, but in just a few short years, that stockpile could dwindle down to nothing."

So a company that has already struggled immensely with online features for their games, should get into the streaming business?

Do you have any idea how much money it would cost for Nintendo to create this type of service, and you want them to only charge $20-$50 dollars a year and expect them to make a profit? If there are only 5.5 million consoles sold at this point, they would NEVER make a profit even if every single customer subscribed. Why do you think PLaystation Now will have a chance at being profitable? Because its a service that will be made for not only the PLaystation 3, which has over 80 million sold, but the PLaystation 4, and other Sony products which will have over a 100 million users. Why do you think Netflix can make a profit? Because they are on every device known to man.

That solution makes no sense, and wouldn't do a thing for the Wii U or Nintendo itself.

And that was only your first solution. The other two makes just as little sense.

Especially your Sega analogy, which I might add lost millions of dollars for around 5 years and still didn't go under. Going third party didn't help Sega? Um what? The Dreamcast put that company in such debt, along with other issues before that, and if they didn't go third party they wouldn't of had a product to sell....so they would be gone.

My Wordpress comment had nothing to do with Wordpress being a bad product, in fact I said the opposite. With Wordpress being so easy, it has allowed for a lot of people to think they know journalism and the way this industry works, to start a website and think they can just write whatever they want and have it be factual.

What qualifies him to be an expert on whos a journalist or not?
The same paper you got out of the cereal box that says youre qualified to advise nintendo on how to run its long running game company
