Hm, what if instead of Nintendo falling down hard like the Virtual Boy sucking hard, they decide to go multiplatform?

Well at least they acknowledged they have a serious problem instead of playing ostrich.

That anouncement is not as bad, as I feared. They could've anounced a new console, which would have been devastating for their credability. For me that sounds rather like we can hope for a Nintenphone ;)

ugh most games are smart phones and tablets are stupid rip offs anyways. I hate how everything now days is like omg we need to mix mash everything because everyone has some smart phone or tablet so we gotta put everything on there too. It's too complicated and dumb.

If by sad day you mean a day that was obviously going to happen and one that makes me happy, then yes sad day.

lol, I thought this post was going to say that nintendo shut down or something, but this isn't really too bad, if they change their strategies right now, they can get back in the race....I think

 

On another note, if nintendo wanted people to buy their console, they should have had games that people would want enough in order to buy a wii u

I felt like they rushed the launch to get a head start on the other 2 consoles and ended up like the PS3 with nogaems at launch, if they had waited just 1 more year the would have had a much more varied library that would have made people more interested in buying their console.

Unless Nintendo man up and go third party like Sega, they won't live long. This guy right here sums things up perfectly. Good insight too from this video.

That mentality needs to go. If Nintendo is to thrive again, then it can't rely on just one game. It needs to have more releases.

Gamers are not turning to mobile devices... Gamers just aren't buying Nintendo hardware! This is ridiculous and sad indeed if Mario pops up in my Android Google store I'll be very sad, I mean, they could at least put it in the computers if they were going to go the SEGA route!

It's just Nintendo admitting that they fucked up with the Wii U (which most of us already knew a year ago) so why the hell are you including "Bankruptcy" in the tags?  Nintendo are still in good financial shape and will recover, it not like Sega and Atari who where already in trouble when they launched their failed Dreamcast and Jaguar systems while they where already struggling.

 

So calm down people! It's not the end for Nintendo.

Mario and Donkey Kong will never die. This bad phase for Nintendo is because their hardware is from 6 years ago and they've over-relied on a gimmick. I'd play their newest games if I didn't have to purchase a white paper weight and  a lot of other people would as well.

Well the fact they kept focusing on insane hardware gimmiks rather than just making a good "normal" system with third-party capability was always bound to keep hurting them.  The article isn't as bad as I thought but they are acknowledging the fact that what they keep doing isn't working.  As of now they need to think up of a way to build revenue as they wait for the right time to make a fancy Gamecube.  lol
