Former THQ president Jason Rubin recently discussed Nintendo's current state as a hardware maker, saying that the company is essentially "irrelevant" in the console space.

Speaking on the latest episode of GameTrailers' Bonus Round, Rubin said flat out that "Nintendo is irrelevant as a hardware manufacturer in the console business." However, that isn't to say that he doesn't believe there is a lot of value at Nintendo, it's just found in the software.

He then went on to say how the company is a "worldwide treasure," adding that "it is a crime that we do not play those games on the systems that we have."


While I don't fully agree with him, I do see what he is getting at. What do you think about his opinion?

He founded a company that has made two good games(Jak 1 and 2. 3 was okay, everything else they've done has been trash), and then moved onto a company that made very few good games(well, published, as THQ didn't develop ANY games. They simply published them).

An irrelevant out of business CEO head calling the most financially stable and consistent hardware company irrelevant.

Is that really the best you got right now Kirby?
