Heard someone say that and wondered if it was a good comparison

I wouldn't say so. Disney owns like 50% of everything.

Mostly a Confirm

They make majority of their games family friendly, but they still make more mature stuff. The difference is that Disney has been steadily declining ever since the 90s.

Disagree

Where is the equivalent of Suite Life and Twerky Montana for Nintendo?

No. DIsney is absolutely terrible these days. Nintendo at least has some competence left.

D.
Disney doesn't rely on rehashes. You don't see 100 versions of the same movie from them. :D

Disney has Marvel and has does PG-13 movies, so no.

Pretty much. Nintendo will be around as long as video games exist, just like Disney will be around as long as movies/TV shows exist. If Nintendo reaches cult hit status among gamers, through what it's doing within these next 18 months, it will be unstoppable. Which is a good thing. If MS ditches the games like they might, and Nintendo can expand enough to mass produce games, no other company stands a chance.

Even if that doesn't happen, Nintendo is always profitable and will not be losing money any time soon. They can buy Xbox and almost all of Sony in a bit. Within 2 years Nintendo can have that status. It won't take much for them to be bigger than all of Sony at this point and they are indeed timeless. Ignore the Nintendoomed trolls, they've been around for over a century, they've been wrong for over a century as well. Nintendo will be around long than any of us or our children. We are only a small part of their history, this is only the beginning. Mario is already more well known than Mickey Mouse.

I forsee a future in which there's 7 Billion Nintendo hardware units in homes, with gaming becoming a bigger thing than ever before, Nintendo will be at the head of that. Regardless of what anyone would have you believe, the other two companies are in much worse position than Nintendo. They may not make it this generation, but Nintendo will live on, and compete with the next guy, (Still convinced that will be Ubisoft, anyone here would buy a Ubibox?).
