What would be so terrible about Nintendo going third party on consoles?

I don't see anything but positives if Nintendo decided to go 3rd party for consoles.

+ Their games would reach a much wider audience.

+ We wouldn't have to spend hundreds of dollars to buy Nintendo hardware just to play Nintendo games.

+ Online features for Nintendo games would be greatly improved and there would be more players online.

+ On the hardware side they could focus solely on handhelds and make a wonderful handheld system.

I'm sure there are more positives that I can't think of. I'm not saying Nintendo is in any kind of financial trouble, but going 3rd party would benefit us gamers greatly.

Uh... Nintendo games wouldn't be the same without nintendo hardware.

I mean... Controllers, accessories, I don't mean just wii and wii U controller, but GCN, 64, etc.
And the build quality of the hardware.
The philosophy of affordable hardware.

This is the correct answer:

Absolutely nothing.

Could say the same thing about ps3 and 360.

PS3 and X360 already largely share the same library.

The day Nintendo is no longer making consoles is the day the industry is screwed.

Pretty much this, Nintendo has been going in more unique directions with their games and to lose out on their handheld and console games would drastically change how their games play in terms of creativity.

I have to agree with tc, I see very few if any downsides to Nintendo going 3rd party.
Only problem with that is Nintendo has stated before that they'd rather shut down than stop developing consoles.
