Should Nintendo Consider The Free To Play Market?

VGBUZZ author writes: Nintendo has said some words when it comes to free-to-play games. Iwata seems to think that mobile games and the free-to-play movement are directly hurting hardware sales for Nintendo. The question I want to know is : Why doesn’t Nintendo join in on the free-to-play movement? (3DS, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, Wii, Wii U)

Should the author of this article consider never writing again? Me thinks so.

Please - stop the whole "nintendo should go mobile" approach.

Should Sony? Should Microsoft? Surely if anyone would be going F2P it would be them, as they're far worse off financially.

I guess it's just cool to hate on Nintendo these days.

Sony has though. Planet side 2 and free realms and they rake in a decent amount of cash.

That's minor cooperation compared to the complete sellout route people want Nintendo to make, though.
Sony made a few games without sacrificing much, let alone putting their older exclusives on a phone.
Haters want Nintendo to drop out of consoles and go full mobile, on top of putting their exclusives from consoles onto mobiles.
Huge difference. It can't happen if Nintendo wants to survive.

Should everybody just make endless MOBA games and Multiplayer only games with the unworthy sticker of "MMO" on them with scrounging F2P?

Why would Nintendo want to give Apple 30% + of every copy sold? This more than anything IMO is why they have not gone mobile.

Not to mention handing publishing control and final say over to Apple?

Do you all really hate nintendo that much, that you guys want bad quality free to play games from them? What has happened to gamers these days?

Nintendo has already stated theyve been considering the idea of f2p games, like a year ago!

First game they'll release, is steel divers.

I hope the author was aware of that, i wont read his article, since i dont want to give a click.

Yeah but that game is on their own platform not on an app store.

"The question I want to know is : Why doesn’t Nintendo join in on the free-to-play movement?"

They are, as i pointed out, even if its just one game.

I wont click and read the article
