Implying that Nintendo is going to die or is even remotely in danger of dying.

They aren't going to die any time soon. The worst case scenario for them is that the Wii U sales don't improve and they give up on the home console market and stick with just handhelds.

It is more likely that both Sony and Microsoft will give up making consoles entirely and turn their gaming divisions into streaming gaming services. Sony is already preparing for such a future.

And when they do exit, Nintendo will still be making console hardware.

These sites keep lining themselves up one by one and basically admitting.....

" Hey we are terrible journalists. There are actual interesting things we could be talking about, but we'd rather just stick to the same garbage and trick you into thinking an issue exists, when it doesn't. "

Another one off the list, that I'll never go to.

I've heard people say they want Nintendo to go third party, but I've never actually heard anybody say that they wanted Nintendo to "DIE."

The day Nintendo or PlayStation die is the day I would happily die.

I wouldn't go that far, but it WOULD be very sad if either of them were to exit gaming. Too much love for the industry in those two companies.

Kane221250d ago

are you crazy i love both of those companies. they've had made too many great games for me to just "die happily"

Nintendo are fine but i really wish they would make a comeback as a major player in the console industry, in the sense of getting 3rd partys back on board for a start.

I'm not sure why anyone would want any of the big three to go tits up. Nintendo, Playstation, and Xbox have all contributed so much to the industry. People that woukd like to see any of them go away need to put their fanboy nonsense on hold. If you dont like one or more of them, so what? Just don't buy those. But having any of those three go away would be nothing but bad for this industey that we all love.

Actually gamers would be better off without the big three. No more pay to play online, no more parity crap,no more games being hold back because that console is not powerful. No more this game doesn't fit with the ideology or vision of say corporation, gets axe. Full backwards compatibility enabled. Kickstarter and Steam minus early access have proven time and time again to be pro gamer not pro corporation. In fact gamers have more control of their gaming experience on Steam than say consoles.......,

The wet dream of a PC elitist... The day the consoles die is the day that gaming dies as we know it. We will only be playing boring and monotonous RTS, sims, MMOs and FPSs for the rest of our lives on expensive hardware.
