The past three years have been kind to Nintendo. After facing obscurity with the semi-disasters in the fifth and sixth generation with the Nintendo 64 and Gamecube, respectively, it seemed Nintendo may be on the rocks. After the 2004 Tokyo Game Show, it seemed even more likely Nintendo was doomed to become the next Sega.
Skeptics pointed to the ridiculousness's of Nintendo motion sensing remote. Oh how wrong those pundits were. Since the consoles launch in 2006, the Wii has sold over 56 million worldwide. Most of Nintendo's new found success has been because the "causal market" and by using effective marketing. But Bitmob thinks this'll hurt Nintendo in the long run, and they are about to tell you why.
