    Nintendo needs to adapt or die, they are already left behind.

    They have decided to go down the own hard route and not support the others hardware. This is not the way as Sega could have told them years ago. They have surprised a few with some success on the way (wii) but ultimately this was short lived.

    I think they should stick to software and forget about hardware unless they can compete in the gaming tablet market.

    I think it depends on how they identify characters.

    If relationship progression is set up as:

    IF 1$ = MALE && IF 2$ = FEMALE;
    THEN SOMETHING$ = RELATIONSHIP$ + 10;

    IF RELATIONSHIP$ >= 100;
    THEN BABBY$ = TRUE
    BABBY_MOTHER$ = 2$
    BABBY_FATHER$ = 1$

    Could be done another way without relying on gender as the identifier. But if too much stuff relies on it, it'd need to be reworked from the ground up.

    Abandoning the hardcore gamers in the West then? Well, guess that is me trading my Wii U in then.

    Can't compete with Steam

    What's left?
    My guess is that thay have had quite a few meetings with those points on the agenda. I do wonder if hubris had set in and they stopped watching what the competition was doing and lived in 'Nintendo is great' land for too long. They simply didn't evolve.

    I'll admit I've been tempted to get a Wii-U, simply put, I have a child, if you look at the main selection of games for the xbox\playstation, it's not aimed a children. The Wii-U is. If I was Nintendo I would ditch the console market and just make games for a family section for xbox. Heck the only reason I'd plug a Wii-U into the TV is for Mario! Only nice thing about the Wii-U is that it's backwards compatible (can play Wii games). Surely game development is more profitable then game development + console development.

    Hopefully Microsoft and Nintendo will sign some agreement so I can get Mario on the xbox

    Imagine what a success Mario Kart 8 would be on PS4/X1. What if it was cross-platform multi-player!? They would be on to a winner.
    I find Nintendo quite stubborn these days, and it will be their downfall.

    They could even release all of the classic N64/Gamecube games on iOS/Android and they would dominate the app charts.

    Can you imagine - on XBL? 10-11 yr old american boys screaming obscenities down their headsets? You want Nintendo to expose your sweet innocent children to that?

    I have a 360, a PS4, a psudeo-gaming laptop, a 3DS, a Wii, a gamecube, a N64, a Megadrive, a NES, various gameboys and an old Win95 machine [one day I WILL play diskworld] [Also; get on my level.]

    Plus no kids.


    ...and I'd rather not deal with sexist, racist, homophobic 12 year olds.

    They're not, but XBL does seem to be the online equivalent of swigging White Lightening on the swings in the local park.

    Yup.

    Because Steam actually does something about it.

    See also: LoL/WoW.


    In all seriousness, there are more kids on consoles than there are on PC. They may exist on PC, but you're more likely to run into them on console.
