You know, release a couple of games, drop the price a bit, and become yet another Nintendo juggernaut?

Im thinking this years holiday season is gonna be the turning point, but thats just me.

Thoughts?

When Mario Kart and 3D Mario release within a month of each other, and the console gets a 50 buck price cut.

I wouldn't say the 3DS is a juggernaut yet. Please refer to Nintendo's 2012 financial report. Look, I love the 3DS, and will say it is the best system to own today. But the issue is the Western consumers have not taken to it like the Japanese. Hopefully that changes.

In regards to Wii U and a price cut, it really depends on where PS4 and Durango/Infinity come in for MSRP. The difficult part is that you have the PS3 and 360 for substantially less than the Wii U, and the PS4 and Durango/Infinity will be higher. It's not good to be in the middle.

I still believe Nintendo will do the same thing they did in 2011 (3DS) as they will this year with the Wii U: November 24 in the US will be Mario release, with 2nd week of December Mario Kart.

If I am wrong, I will give you my address to come to my house and kick me between the legs. Nintendo cannot and will not be able to generate sales of the Wii U going against Sony and Microsoft with any other type of game or franchise. They need to jump start the sales of the Wii U and only the plumber can do it.
