Gabe Gurwin of Tech Heads gives his thoughts on where Nintendo stumbled, and how some drastic changes could get it moving in the right direction.
To get hardcore gamers, Nintendo should add an HDD, a better online structure, and get a lil bit more 3rd party devs on board.
If they added a hard drive that it would probably be proprietary. The way they're doing it now is far better than Microsoft or Sony because I can choose the size I want and I can choose the brand I want. They gave me the choice to decidebased on my preferred cost/quality, without being able to mark things up anyway they want.
The state of Nintendo is that they have always made game consoles that were closer to being toys than computers. We older gamers grew up playing Nintendo and now we view those games with a bit of nostalgia. But kids today are more and more playing games on iPods and tablets. Nintendo's main market has moved on to something else. That's a generalization of course, but mostly true.
The state of Nintendo is just fine after 2013, where they were the top publisher. This article is hyperbolic and lacks facts.
Humor me as to where it lacks facts.
The state of 2014, for Nintendo? Well, they've got some of their best games coming out in 2014, alongside strong indie support. I dunno, I'd say 2014 is going to be a lot less barren game wise than 2013 was, so yeah, it won't be so bad.
Unfortunately they are still ahead in sales. Unfortunately the games that everyone keeps claiming they would buy a wiiu for are coming. Unfortunately the friends list works.. The mii verse is the best gaming community out there. No swearing, racial jokes, just fans.
