So people say nintendo "lost" the casual market...

But who did they lose it too? Sony and M$. Thats who.

Which is funny b/c i remember all of last generation sony fanboys were crying "omg wii is for babies its cazuals thats the only reason it sold well.

But, using that logic, would that mena the ps2 only sold well b/c casuals used it as a DVD player, or that ps1 is for casuals too?
Oh no, Sony is different, right?
I don't know about u, but it seems that any console that sells well is for casuals.
So If nintendo "lost the casuals", and the ps4 sells the most, then that means the ps4 is the casual console, right?

Are you sure?

I think the casual market we're talking about with the Wii (soccer moms) left consoles altogether, in favor of tablets and smartphones.

The casual market Sony and MS have (dudebros) has always been with them; I doubt they were able to take much of the Wii's fanbase at all.

when people say that they're referring to old people and the general family gamers for the basic minigames and such.

mostly Nintendo lost that demographic to mobile phones.

don't make this a stupid fanboy war. anyone with half a brain should know better.

First of all, the casuals are one markets. 2nd of all. casuals usually have a tablet/smartphone, and an xbox360/ps3

No. The Cooking Mama/Wii Fit gamers are extremely different in purchasing habits from the Call of Duty/Madden gamers. One group migrated from consoles and one group stayed.

I take it marketing isn't your field of employment?

The other consoles had a much wider selection for the non casual.

Nintendo lost a significant portion of their "blue ocean" demographic to smartphones and tablets. Very few of those people own a Microsoft or Sony system.

Why are people taking an obvious troll account seriously? Sounds like another Fisto alt created to stir up more trouble.
