With a wealth of franchise characters, and a lot of great in-house software developers, shouldn’t Nintendo think more about games than hardware and seek a little help?
"Nintendo’s influence on the gaming community provides an image so evocative that speaking the very name of the Japanese developer is able to draw out childhood memories as though you were fondly remembering a rite of passage. Close your eyes and imagine it for a moment; what the word Nintendo represents. The Mushroom Kingdom and all of its perils. Late nights spent stealing coins and breaking friendships in Mario Party. Learning to fly an arwing, or drift on mute city, or edge guard against Marth players. More than a list of games, Nintendo is a culture of innovation and creativity, which makes you wonder why they would ever bother limiting themselves to one console in the first place."
