From the Switch and Zelda to Metroid and Mario, the company is firing on all cylinders.
Absolutely. Money coming in faster than they can ship the products out.
Just got a Switch and Zelda. Wow, what a game. The Octopath Traveler demo is slick too and I'm pumped for that.
I hope they alrwady broke even
I have a feeling this will be the best Nintendo generation in a long time!
Ds is still alive and kicking...
Not for long.
Oh **** someone actually knows when to use IS instead of ARE in the title!
All your base, are belong to us!
Nintendo "are" having an amazing year FIFY
Nope. A group or company is singular, so the "is" is appropriate.
Think the usage differs regionally
It was a joke lol. This is one of my biggest pet peeves on the internet.
Absolutely, brought games games games.. and games for the future. They're looking great.
Without a doubt.
Shhhh, don't let Superchiller and the other usual Nintendo haters know.
Speak of the devil
I'm not as convinced as the Nintendo faithful, but little things are definitely impressing me here and there. I want more though before I even consider one.
An "amazing year"? Yet they have only a small library of games, with a few first party games and some indies, and not much else. As of now, there is nothing interesting to play on the Switch unless you're a diehard Nintendo fan, or want to play some indies on the go (games that are available for other platforms, usually with better performance). Sales of the Switch handheld have slowed drastically, it's now widely available at many retailers, so the artificial shortages created by Nintendo are done. And the system is falling back into the pattern of the Wii U, great initial hardware sales, a weak trickle of games, and very little to look forward to in the near future. Like the Wii U, Mario and Zelda alone aren't going to be enough to turn things around. 3rd party developers will mostly avoid the Switch due to the need to massively scale down the real console games to run on it, and the poor hardware design continues to cause serious issues (short battery life, warping systems, joycon desynching issues, scratched screens, anemic internal storage, overpriced accessories, etc.). It's nice to fantasize about the success of the Switch, but like the Wii U, a serious lack of games is going to cripple it's chances of success. By this time next year, let's see just how many games really make it over to the Switch; I doubt it will be very many, especially when most Switch owners prefer to just buy Nintendo's own first party games.
I'll see you in a year when the sales of the Switch has surpassed that of the Wii U. Until then I hope you have fun with your console of choice. I know I'll be having fun with my Switch/PS4 combo.
Wild speculations. You're whole comment history is full of negativity. Don't be cancer.
Superchiller more like super downer. Some people are happy with the same old same old tried and tested yearly churns on moderately changed hardware rather than bold revolutions.
Artificial demand.. is that why they've sold 5 million in 6 months yeah them sales are slowing 🙄 It's already sold half of what the Wii U sold Don't need to be a die hard Nintendo fan to enjoy Mario Kart 8. Absolutely nothing to looking forward to in the near future... yet 6 weeks time a new and so far absolutely great looking mario is due. Pokemon next year. They'll be another direct by the end of the year. Serious issues that have been reported a handful of times out of 5 million units so we're talking like 1-2% maybe 5% of users at a push experiencing problems, hardly RROD is it. Plenty games coming and due in the future i.e. Next year they haven't even revealed them all. Unlike Microsoft who have nothing to reveal nothing to talk about were barely months after E3 and Nintendo have basically just done another 45 minute presentation. They got loads going on but hey ho your clearly stuck in your ways and blinded by your own personal favourites I myself like to be open to all companies and all games at any time as long as the quality is there Sony and now Nintendo are smashing it this gen.
Sale of the Switch has slowed down? Look at this: http://m.ign.com/articles/2... The Switch was the best selling console both in the US and Japan in August. The Switch has more games than Mario and Zelda. Let forget that games like Splatoon 2, Arms, Xenoblade 2, Fire Emblem Warriors, Pokken Tournament... exist, shall we? Oh and let forget that 3rd parties AAA like Doom, Wolfenstein, LA Noire, Payday 2, Steep... are also coming. How many exclusives did the ps4 or xbox one had in their first year? And how many of those manage to score 90+ ?
Honestly starting to think you must be paid to patrol this site looking for each and every Nintendo-related article to find some way to spin it negatively. And if you're not being paid to do this, then buddy...I feel sorry for you.
You are paid by Nintendo to write positive propaganda for them to promote their poor products, you're the last person to try to point fingers. I am just telling the truth about Nintendo, they've been screwing over consumers for many years, with poorly-designed gaming hardware, overpriced accessories, bad gimmicks, and anti-consumer policies. You need to wake up and see the truth about the damage Nintendo has done in the gaming industry and community.
Nintendo have damaged the industry, uh it wouldn't even be here if they hadn't reinvigorated it in the 80's it was going under until Nintendo stepped in and smashed it. Sure they are stuck in their ways like some others I could mention 😳🤐 however they games are top notch quality 9/10 is a minimum that's a pretty good minimum. Either way luckily they don't listen to trolls and stick to listening to actual fans (hence why mini SNES and now mini nes are being stocked properly) troll on troll, troll on.
Yes, it looks like they can keep it up, so I am glad to have a Switch, I think if Nintendo keeps it up, this could be the new SNES!
Well, they are doomed, in fact. Doom is coming to the Switch soon :D
Haha yep and not only that but they are rolling in the 💰😉
Yup! they have indeed surpassed my expectations!
