If Nintendo went software only, where would you see the industry going?

I'd be very concerned. I'd see the industry narrowing even further into military shooters, and putting more and more focus into power, eventually causing the industry to fall into obscurity.

Not changing this sig until we get a new main series Tales game released on a Nintendo console in the US

Well judging from what they stated before. There would be no more Nintendo all together. If they are done, they are done, along with their titles.

Everyone would just continue on with doing what they are doing, I am sure an innovation could come from somewhere... Some person...

The last chance for gaming would be left to the indie developers IMO.

Well Microsoft and Sony wouldn't have someone to copy hardware wise, so, Sony would be on it's own and Microsoft at the mercy of what they can copy from them.

Game wise same thing. Same new post new gen games. All graphics no content, all dark, mud and gritty with DLC for everything including the ending. Soon games will last less than 4 hours and have the basic content only, while everything else you'll need to pay to unlock.

Given that, sales of gaming overall would go down since Nintendo's first party games do take a chunk of the sales, so those two alone would eat each other alive trying to survive with their new way of appealing to brogamers and brand slaves.
