From Scarab83:
"We like to come up with a slew of new gimmicks, and then cram them into a game we know people will buy whether it sucks or not."

Because people never buy them. There's your answer. (And they've made a lot more new IPs than you realize.)

Fact of the matter is they've just plain run out of ideas. On top of that as long as you put Mario, Link, or Samus into the game people with thick nostalgia goggles on will buy it up. It's whats kept Nintendo afloat this long. So why even bother coming up with new IP's?

That is some flawed logic right there.

"Hey Nintendo doesn't make new IP's". "Neither does Sony so it's OK".
