Is the Super Nintendo Wii doomed to fail?

Self-proclaimed Nintendo fan begrudgingly analyzes what it would take for the new Nintendo console, "Project Cafe," to fail.

GGTL: "Nintendo has an interesting future on the horizon. Wii sales have been gradually slowing, and even the multitude of awesome titles seen last year couldn’t slow its inevitable sales decline. If Miyamoto and friends ever needed a shot in the arm, it’s right here, right now.

But is it too little, too late? With its competitors so firmly dug in, can Nintendo’s new wonder toy even hope to gain a following, and not end up like the Dreamcast, Atari Jaguar, and so many other failed consoles before it? Like so many things in life, that depends."

I really and truly don't think it will. That said, the GameCube curse may sneak up when we least expect it...

i expect the next nintendo platform to do well, but i really don't think its gonna do as well as the wii.

Nintendo hasn't even announced anything yet and the media is already gearing up the sensationalism. Typical.

It probably won't be another Wii, but it will still likely do well. Nintendo seems to have learned from their mistakes, and with the 3DS they've been actively pushing third party content and letting them have the spotlight. I imagine they'll continue with that on the next Wii, and try to help third party development as well as perhaps bring back the good old Nintendo seal of quality to cut down on the shovel ware. They obviously want to change what ended up happening with Wii software.

If Nintendo appeal to the mass market like they did with the Wii, I can't really see how they will fail.

It had far more mass market appeal early on when it launched as it was something new and exciting. Now it's mainly party games for casuals and your occasional 1st party Nintendo game such as Kirby, Mario etc.

Make it $299 or less and it will sell...make it more and it will have problems....

The only times Miyamoto cries are tears of joy for how long he's had the #1 :)

I have a Wii and have only used about 3 times. This will probably be the same unfortunately.
