Is Nintendo too dependent on Mario's success?

Well if thats your argument you don't need Mario to recognize that Link/Kirby/Fox/etc, is Nintendo. You don't need Mario to recognize the Nintendo brand.
And while Mickey isn't in any recent films unless you count the many references to him, he has been in films in the past ten years, and he is constantly on TV. So to say Disney doesn't use him constantly is ludicrous.
Look at you.... sticking to the plan.

I actually did a post about this a while back. Did you know that Disney did too much Mickey? Mickeys popularity was dwindling in favour of Pluto, Donald and Goofy in the 30's and dsepite various reboots, Mickey was eventually dropped from Cartoons in the 50's, not appearing in a cartoon again until the 80's in Mickeys Christmas Carol (And even then he isn't the main character in it, Scrooge Macduck took that role)
They are trying to put Mickey in things but it's still very difficult for them because he's the mascot and has to be seen as this patron figure. Runaway Brain is a great cartoon, but Mainstream Disney won't even talk about it because of how Mickey acts in it.
Heck, I doubt Disney will even talk about Epic Mickey now after the second game flopped.
They've been trying to make a Mickey Movie for a while, but just you wait as that clusters in the dust for years on end.

You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. You are so in over your head, lol.
Also, anyone can find people to agree with them on something here in this world. Just because you find some people that agree with you doesn't mean you're right or have a valid point.
Flounder more, please.
Is Frosted Flakes too dependent on Tony the Tiger?
Is Trix too dependent on the Rabbit?
Is Procter & Gamble too dependent Mr. Clean?
If you have a mascot, you use him to sell your products. It's not rocket science people.

You can say the wii is a gimmick all you want but it sold. Rememind me again what was the 306's top selling games again. Oh that was kinect adventures which would also be a "gimmick" game. You do realise the fun so called casual games vastly out sell mainstream games like FPS and the such.
More like "pack-in games" will always outsell games that aren't packed in.

While mario kart was bundled it still sold well. Do you really think 34 mil in sales were all bundles? Even if all but a third were bundled it still would have outpreformed ever ps3 game
sonic777 is a grand arguer and truther!!!
Seriously, give up man. You are terrible at this.
Of course it is.
If Mario ever fell out of favor with consumers Nintendo would certainly have to scramble to find something to rejuvenate interest or take the risk of creating something new and hope it is just as compelling.
The same can definitely be said for the competition and their bread-and-butter IPs.

So wait, what does selling big mean then? You mentioned earlier that you are not talking about game sales, so under what context are you referring too?
