Nintendo's Uncertain & Lackluster Future Outside of the Switch

An over-reliance on its gaming consoles have meant that Nintendo has yet to hit the revenue it earned in 2009 from the success of its 2006 launch of the Wii. The hit and miss cyclical nature of Nintendo is particularly problematic as Nintendo Switch sales should be hitting its peak right around now (2020) and will face stiff competition from the launch of the PS5 and new Xbox, estimated to be releasing later in 2020.

It is funny seeing the fanboys get upset by the topic of this article when it is just an analysis of Nintendo's business strategy that they laid out last year at an investors meeting. Nintendo themselves said that their business strategy was focused on 3 pillars and all this article is doing is pointing out the fact that Nintendo is not doing great with its other 2 pillars. If you think Nintendo should just focus on gaming consoles you better attend the next investor meeting and tell them that they are doing it all wrong by pursuing mobile and IP expansion.
