Nintendo oversaturating their core titles

From article:
"Nintendo brought some of their best franchises to Wii already in the first 3 years since launch, but with sequels to 3 Nintendo games coming this year, is Nintendo oversaturating their key franchises?"

Although Pilotwings was in developement, I have a feeling Nintendo next year will be the best yet for announcements as Nintendo stale sales will push them to preform better in the upcoming years.

I do find it odd how Nintendo is releasing sequels to games not even 3 years old. What is this Activistendo?

Well as long they make their games more challenging.

Besides, Metroid another M is not a direct sequel to metroid prime. ( its just a different time period), different gameplay mechanism.
Zelda TP was a GCN game.

Its a bit over the top really.

Nintendo just releases the same games over and over with a little variety. How many more mario karts and mario tennis and mario soccer do we need?

I find it odd as well, Galaxy 2 was sort of shocking as I'd rather see Nintendo visit other stellar franchises, but is Nintendo and Activision are the only ones guilty of this? Uncharted 2, Gears 2, 2nd Ratchet game, another Onrails RE, Lost Planet 2..I really could go on.

Seems gaming is following Hollywood's lead...Not so sure that's the right path to follow.

Wii has new IPs also called Wii Sports and Wii Music &_&

As long as the games are good I'm fine with it. I'll take a mario, zelda, and metroid every other year kthx.

you cant have too much of a good thing but if nintendos top franchises turn into badly reviewed and recieved games than you have a problem. 5 super mario games in a year wouldnt be too much as long as they are all all around excellent.

You CAN have too much of a good thing...and most of the times it leads to something not as good...even BAD. Too much sugar over time can lead to diabetes...too much fatty foods leads to atherosclerosis...too many games can lead to....just that...too much of the SAME thing. Think about Halloween or Easter when you were younger. If you were anything like ME...then you probably raked in the candy...only to have a good chunk of it sitting in a bag and getting old months later. It's not because you didn't like candy anymore...you just got tired of it.
Even if the games are GOOD...or GREAT...it is hard to believe that anybody can push a genre forward releasing rehash after rehash. Plus, critics will eventually get tired of it and rate it lower JUST because it IS a rehash of a title. Not saying that Nintendo are in this position TODAY...but there is the DANGER that they get comfortable cashing in and NOT innovating on the SOFTWARE side.

I was thinking about this as I was playing Rachet and Clank 8 and checking my MW2 (COD 6) preorder while posting my user review of uncharted 2. Since I RRODed I haven't been able to play Halo OSDT or Resident Evil 5 or SF4 so I've had more ps3 time, but at least I have Fallout 3. And I realized - the wii needs to innovate in software and quit rehashing these old titles.

Did you see the screenshots of Gran Turismo 5? Incredible.

Oh the irony.

In n4g thinking terms: It's different when those titles do sequels.
