Grumpy Gurevitz writes: Nintendo’s ‘seal of quality’ has traditionally been a badge, which reassured customers that software for their platform wouldn’t crash or damage their console. It was never meant to be a badge to guarantee the quality of the software. Yet, over the years, due to the large volume of quality titles that were released on Nintendo systems, it developed a following for meaning just that. The issue Nintendo currently faces is that aside from their first party titles and a minority of third party games, the majority of content being released for the Wii and DS is awful. This at a time when you can get plenty of awful software for free on the Iphone platform or quality high end content on other consoles. This software consumes the shelf space allocated for the Wii at retail and is skewing the public’s perception of what the Wii and DS stand for.
