My vision of Nintendo has changed. I see them as the only company in the market willing to go full force with idea. They eventually get games to work using these ideas and I end up enjoying. It takes a while for amazing games to be released for their systems, but I don't mind the wait.


Right there. No one else is stepping out of their comfort zones; they all want to play it safe. I am weary of safe. As much as I am frustrated with Nintendo, I applaud their willingness to do what the others will not, especially when the others just end up copying Nintendo anyway, such as with adding motion control after mocking the Wii for so long, and then admitting with their actions that Nintendo was right all along. I want different. Gaming is feeling too stale to me after more that 3 decades.


The only one playing it safe is Nintendo. They are not competing head to head with Sony or Microsoft. They are not going all out with online or graphics.

Keeping the same the same and adding a "U" is not innovating or taking a risk. Nintendo is the one taking the least amount of risk and playing it the most safe.


+1
Nintendo has been around in the gaming industry longer than Sony or MS. They know how to spend their money and sell their product well. I do not understand why so much hate is of Nintendo. Every gamer out there should respect each company as they produce systems we are free to choose from.

Nintendo clearly stated ever since PS1 was introduced that their targeted audience is the younger generation...they said the same thing for the next 2 generations of consoles that they will not compete audience with Sony or MS.

Now that they are "trying" to market their new system for all ages, people start bashing the system for the stupidest things.

How many times will we come to realize that it is not the name brand or console that sells a product. Its what it can give us back in return (long lasting memories of fun factor, diversity of entertainment offered and reason why you bought it in the first place.)

I have all 3 last- gen console + Gaming PC. I also have the Wii U and damn right I will buy NextBox and PS4 without have this stupid crap argument of which one has more poop on their plate.

Back in the old days every console had games exclusively for that system only. What do you think will happen if that concept was reinforced today? All these cross platform games just spoiled the little kids these days. Be grateful you can pick 1 console and still play games on the other systems.

Side note: Wii U's future is yet to be determined, so please dont bash til Sony and Xbox comes out with theirs...because whether you like it or not, I think Sony and MS won't be coming out with a system much more power than what Wii U has (all about profit with minimum lose) Yes Sony i'm looking at you!!

Good thing you're not the CEO of any company.


Why? The console my company sold wouldn't necessarily be the one I owned/played. I'd probably make a piece of crap console with crappy cheap games and advertise it to hell just to prove how stupid people are and maximize profits and they would buy it too, the kinect sales prove advertising trumps quality.

You do know how business works, right? You have to sell things to make money. Unless, of course, you're saying you'd rather own a console with good games than a high-selling console with "crappy gimmicks forced in every game" and "very few worthwhile games", in which case I say: Do you remember the Dreamcast? See what "good games" Sega's producing now?


You do know I'm a consumer and a gamer not a shareholder right? Buying a console because it sold alot is just plain stupid. If more people thought like me then the consoles with good games would sell more.

The ONLY company that has anything to worry about is Sony. Their gaming division is tanking, their stocks have been downgraded to junk status, and the vita is a complete failure. They can't afford another ps3 so they are in deep trouble this gen. Could be their last console.


I don't know about you but I'd rather have a low selling console with good games then a high selling console with crappy gimmicks forced in every game and very few worthwhile games.

And with that, welcome to Business 101.


Falstaff don't pat yourself on the back, smartass. Someone was saying the only person taking big risk was Nintendo which couldn't be the furthest thing from the truth as they are playing it the most safe. But thank you for validating my point. Makes me feel good when I hug my B.A. at night.

Looking at metacritic in terms of AAA games. Wii Only had 14 games over 90%, now lets compare that to the PS3 which came out at the same time which has 44 games over 90%.

Most of all the games you listed were pure and utter crap. Good try though.


Irrelevant bro, because the Wii outsold the PS3 and Xbox 360!!!! and it has Mario!!!

You fools do realize you can put that sort of spin to any argument, right? Give me a list of "great" games and I can just as easily call them all trash. Doesn't matter what game you name off...it's more than likely trash to me. You see now how futile it is for you nimrods to compare your personal leisurely delights?

To be fair, people do have reason to worry about Sony Computer Entertainment's state right now. Unlike all the Nintendo doom crying.


This. Sony is in a lot of trouble as a whole more so than Nintendo is (& more than just gaming).


is sony really going to be able to sell PS4s at a major loss when their status is junk and they can't get loans?


Nope, they can't. They'll crumble as a whole if they even try to.
