Maybe Nintendo’s downfall was always imminent?
Doomed since 1889. Sadly Nintendo is the only company actually has a future in video games. The PS4 sales numbers are great right now, and I really hope they continue to do so, but I doubt the PlayStation division alone is enough to keep Sony's crumbling empire afloat. Sony actually said they "needed" the PS4 to be successful. Microsoft on the other hand have new leadership and the Xbox division has never made Microsoft any money, the board can't wait to cut out the tumor that is the Xbox. The Xbox businesses strategy appears to be; pay third party publishers alot of money to make games on our platform and give us early DLC.
Admittedly, they do look like the new sega, so third party Nintendo would last well into the future of gaming.
If anyone is looking like the new Sega these days it's Sony. Nintendo have billions in reserves.
Lol, so people here actually believe, that the console division of Sony alone makes enough profit, to save sony as a whole? I mean, Xbox360 was super successful, but it still didnt make any money for MS, so why should this be different? Actually Nintendo is the only one, who always made enough money on its consoles. One year is not as it should and all the doom talk start. I mean, the Gamecube, which failed in the eyes of a lot of people, made more money for Nintendo, than the Xbox 360 did for MS, but noone would say, that the Xbox360 is a failure. And why? Because people equal sales and owning the console, with the company having success with it, but that is not exactly the case.
Yeah bore off long live Nintendo, gaming would be Bland without them!
All gaming empires should pay tribute to ninty cus they have contributed a lot to gaming. Long live ninty!
There would still be a Nintendo, They should just stop making hardware and make software for all. MS has given gaming nothing.
And what did Sony give us? If there were no Sony, we would have 1 system, with the best first party titles and the best third party titles, in a small console, so you can take it anywhere in your backpack, for a small price. You all act like, because you own a sony console right now, as if Sony did change the industry back in the days...
This Wii U game is awesome... too bad i can't enjoy it because no one else bought it... SAID NO ONE EVER.
What about Sony's downfall? They just announced a $1.1 billion loss as a company. They're struggling to stay afloat.
Yeah, if not for their Playstation division Sony as a whole would have gone under. Their electronics and computer divisions are just bleeding money.
You cant say such a thing on here, are you not afraid to lose all your bubbles?^^ Just joking, but people should stop bias and look at things, the way they are and not thru loveglasses, because you own one of the systems. There is enough, what I dont like about the Wii U for example, but I just dont agree with the stuff haters shout out all the time, to hurt the Wii U. Lack of games is one thing, I dont like, the Gamepad, I love it, the specs, obviously could be better, but as long as I get fluid running games, with worse graphics, but the still the same games, I dont care that much for it.
If you are a fan of Nintendo on this site, all you have to do is go over to some Sony articles and gush about how they are God, in order to get some of your lost "I like Nintendo" bubbles back. I actually like both companies and own both systems, and hope they both do well. However, some on here are so insistent on hating Nintendo that I can't take their comments seriously.
I just bought a 3DS XL this past weekend and am in LOVE with it! The hardware is amazing and the software speaks for its self. Same for the Wii U. Software is starting to make the Wii U a must have system. I think Nintendo might have another hit on there hands with Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. Judging by the scores that are out from Game Informer and Famitsu. Can't wait to see what others say and think.
Nostalgia is the reason why they're still around.
Are you on Crack?
Wut is this crappy article. "The more capable 3DS even had its projections dropped to 13.5 million from an original 18 million." yet it was the number 1 system sold in 2013. Funny how that isnt mentioned. What a poor excuse for bias journalism
