It appears quality of life model will be not be part of the gaming business. Nintendo could be planning a new division as a new source of revenue as oppose to putting all there eggs in one basket. I'll reserve judgement until more information emerges.

From the article:

"With a platform business that improves people’s QOL in enjoyable ways, we will attempt to establish a new business area apart from our dedicated video game business."

So, yeah, like you said; their core gaming area will stay intact and this will be a side thing for them to increase revenue.
Good thing, too; I'd hate to see Nintendo ever leave the console business, be it home or portable.

Angry, basement dwelling fanboys of camps whose names shall go unnamed have disagreed with you.

Not sure why; aren't they always the ones saying competition is good?

I'll tell you why, Cyg.

It's possible they disagree with the notion that Nintendo won't be using their gaming console for their QOL plans and will be making something separate in order to cater to those plans, but I don't think that's it...

I think that they've likely disagreed, because, like so very many other haters around the N4G lately, not to mention the internet at large, they want to see Nintendo leave the home console or portable markets for the third party/mobile field, because they're too cheap/poor/prideful to go multiplatform like a sane gamer would, and instead they take to hating all over the internet at anyone who even dares to suggest that Nintendo should stay in the console-making business.

Stay salty, kids; Nintendo's not going anywhere, you'll never see Mario on anything but a Nintendo CONSOLE/HANDHELD, and your tears are delicious.

"And we also vow to improve online" Miiverse crashed. Doesn't happen as often as PSN, but still.

No, but when it does you're credit card information is compromised while taking Sony two week to admit it.

They went silent with that number!
Yeah, no way to spin that...

sinspirit880d ago

It was 6 days after PSN went down that they told everyone that.

This information was encrypted, unable to be used in any way.

They were busy working on redoing the entire infrastructure, they don't rely on PR for everything.

Any database is susceptible to these things. Live is actually more vulnerable and has been victim of a lot more smaller scale thefts.

Nintendo hiring lots of employees,all this talk about "QOL". Okay this man is up to something.
