5 lessons Nintendo can learn from the 3DS

I just want to clarify I do not dislike the 3DS or Nintendo. I own the system and I intend on holding onto it. I just can’t help but feel frustrated by their questionable business decisions. Nintendo make excellent software and have arguably the best franchies in the industry, but when it comes to making hardware, they seemed to have lost the plot recently.

Excellent contribution to the topic at hand. Good one.

Don't rush to launch is the most important thing they need to learn. If they had waited until Christmas time, or now, before launching they could have had a much stronger line-up of launch software. Oh, and the 3DS would probably have two analog sticks.

Dont do this Nintendo.

reworded so it wasn't coming off wrong:
the 3DS doesn't seem like a step forward, just a minor graphical leap with a new special feature "3D"

Kind of makes me worried about Wii U which is a Wii with a new feature "controller" and an update in visuals. I hope they are focusing on really driving innovation.

don't sell us a product that's only in beta.

Sadly that seems to be the case for all Nintendo handhelds.

Well it's worked out pretty damn good for them so far...

Even if they don't win the handheld war against the Vita...It's already done better than the PSP vs. DS

Hell yes I plan on getting a Vita =]

But they are releasing on time...
Nintendo is glad, but the consumers they got burned.
Think of all the things they have learned
for the people who still apply...
Maybe the Wii-u? That was a joke Ha-ha slim chance.
Their experiment got old
there are handheld to be sold
to the people who still apply.
And there are experiments to be done with who still apply...
Nintendo feels great now that they have tried...
Using you as test subjects was a surprise...
Experimenting on those who still apply...
still apply....
still apply..

Of course it's not funny XD
Because it's true!

I've always been tempted to buy it a few times but to me never made sense in the long run. A system built on a gimmick usually won't turn out for the best.

right cos 3D is all they added /sarcasm

The real problem was the price if you ask me.
