I love all good video games across all platforms. The most important aspects I value are innovation, aesthetic, and immersion. That is to say, I don't have any allegiance whatsoever to any manufacturer of hardware.

But it occurs to me....would Nintendo be better served concentrating on the software side of their business? I realize this is a touchy questions because people, at least very vocal people, become very aligned with particular platforms for whatever reason. Nintendo's software has the best brand recognition of anyone, in my opinion. The franchises they hold I relate to brands like Walt Disney and Apple. They have very clear, very articulated, very dedicated icons in the gaming world.

So why not focus on that? A Nintendo game generated for PC or other console could be absolutely enormous. Or would this undermine the sell to their fanbase somehow?

Just a thought, no conclusion.

The customer would be better served, and that should be paramount to any business.

You belong on the blizz D3 forums, it was built for people like you. Like how some barns are built specifically to contain filthy animals.

I like Nintendo how it is now.

Ummmm maybe console wise. I really think however that Nintendo should focus much more on their handhelds as those have always been much bigger.

The real queston is how would the gaming world be affected if Sega still made consoles?

No, because their software depends on their unique hardware.

Seriously it's like people have forgotten that the WiiU does things beyond what the 360/PS3 are capable of, like the whole tablet controller and stuff.

Because it doesn't, and no games are in development which make compelling use of those features. It doesn't even seem Nintendo is supporting the system with releases.

The system is like 5 days old. What do you expect one of each of their 1st party games? Unrealistic much

Why would they want to go the Sega route when they know Sega themselves aren't doing so well?
