Press2Reset looks at how Nintendo might learn some lessons, and turn their downwards trend around.
Everyone move on, nothing to read here, just more of the same, another troll. Zzzzz Keep it moving.
You know how? By these stupid articles going away
I don't think that'll do anything one way or the other.
Hey, Ninty, we need to talk.... [wraps arm around Ninty's shoulder, leans in to whisper] RELEASE MORE GAMES DAMMIT!!![/yell][/runaway]
Something truly original would be nice...
"Ninty" is actually releasing a lot of games for the Wii U; the problem is there is only much a single company can do. No, they are fine on the first and second party arena. They need to do something to lure in more third party devs, if anything. Also, marketing: proper marketing, and lots of it. It's been more than a year already, and a lot of people still don't even know there's a sucessor to the Wii out.
Sony has bigger financial problems than Nintendo....
What does Sony s financials have to do w Nintendos terrible execution of the Wii U? I bought a Wii u at launch and have been very frustrated w how Nintendo has treated the console and those of us that own it. They have acted as if they could care less about either. The guy that wrote this article obviously cares enough about Nintendo to take the time and effort to compile a well thought out in depth article that is constructive critisim- Why people who say they care about Nintendo want to ignore its many problems and pretend they do no wrong is beyond me - People who like Nintendo should be appreciative of articles like this even if they don t agree w all of it
What does the Wii U have to do with Sony's terrible execution of the Vita? I bought a Vita at launch and have been very frustrated with how Sony has treated the console and those of us that own it. They have acted as if they could care less about either. Why people who say they care about Sony want to ignore its many problems and pretend they do no wrong is beyond me. Works both ways, see?
ROObot, are you in the 3rd grade? The point is I don t care about the other company no matter which one it is because I own a Wii U- that is what I care about- why would I care bout Sony s financials?
I don't have something with this article but with the Internet news in general last days. All "experts" are trying to save Nintendo with their proposals or they are speaking about Nintendo's catastrophe and same time I know that SONY has much more financial problems than Nintendo. I think the "experts" could start propose solutions to Sony.....
Nintendo is already recovered.
Recovering? Maybe. Recovered? No. They still have a long way to go. They are still losing money on the Wii U front.
How will Sony repay their 45 BILLION in debt should be the question. I would like to read some on that now please
Never fails. Nintendo in a spot of trouble? Talk about Sony. Microsoft making another PR mistake? Talk about Sony. Seems like some people are trying to distract themselves from the errors AMD errors of their favorite manufacturer by dragging Sony into it. "Don't talk about bad stuff I don't like! Make Sony look bad instead!" If companies come to rely on that mentality from their biggest supporters, they're gonna be in a lot of trouble.
Never fails. We want to point out problem with your company. But lets not talk about Sony's.

Scrap the Wii and remake the Gamecube. Old great next gen style.
The Gamecube's low sales are the very reason Nintendo changed focus so drastically with the Wii. So, I'm not sure if they really want to return to it. :P
Nintendo just needs to learn how to market their products better and learn where the gaming market is headed in general.They can continue to make their classics like Mario,Pokemon,Zelda and Metroid....but they also have to learn to make new IP's as well as use dormant IP's that help fill in the gaps. F-Zero and Starfox may not sell millions for example...but they are core experiences that fill particular gamers needs. Remember when Nintendo made sport games under the Nintendo Sports banner? Where are those games now? Ken Griffey jr Baseball, Kobe Bryant Basketball, NHL Stanley Cup,1080 Snowboarding,Waverace,Excite Bike...these are exclusive filler titles that get gamers on board. EA or Take Two doesnt want to make a sports game, who cares if you have these to take over. Also, when games like The Last Story, Xenoblade,Pandoras Tower are made those are the core experiences that a company like Nintendo is supposed to hype...not gamers like Project Rainfall!! Games like Regienliev,Disaster day of Crisis,Captain Rainbow etc should not be ignored and not localized due to not knowing if they will sell or not. They need to take more chances because gamers would rather one of those games come out and bomb sales wise over Wii Music which bombed.All I know is "X" looks amazing on Wii-U and they better market that game!!
Nintendo is just fine. They do things better than any game company.
