This console WILL be the death of Nintendo

In my opinion Nintendo started to rapidly go downhill after the gamecube. They don't understand what gamers want, and they went overboard with the Wii on catering to a market that is niche ('family fun') and not substantial enough to provide a real long-term consumer base.

Unfortunately for Nintendo they have now made a 'next-gen' console which is incredibly weak when compared to even moderate PCs most people own today, let alone the Xbox One and PS4. They also are still obsessed with this very small market segment, when frankly mom and pa are already bored of video games from the Wii.

Goodnight Nintendo. And this is coming from somebody who absolutely loved their Nintendo 64 as a console.

Not the death of Nintendo, but it will be the death of their consoles.

Nintendo isn't going to die because you don't like the direction it's going in

Even if they get out of the console business, I don't see them leaving handhelds.

Even if this console completely fails, Nintendo has more than enough money to fall back on. They may die out of preference but not out of necessity.

They make new experiences. The same cannot be said of the other next gen consoles. Nintendo isn't going anywhere. You might, but who cares.
