The issue with Nintendo is they refuse to move forward with the times. They are a very stubborn company that has strong policies and guidelines. They work very well for those who are hard core fans, and those who enjoy Nintendo's original work. However, as a company that still trying to "compete" in this market section they are falling drasticly behind. This is made clear with this legal move, the Wii U, and their last 2 general of handhelds.
They are trying everything they can to stay in the market without taking a gamble, it worked for the last 15 years because the tech in the handheld range and the console race slowed down drasticly. However, if Nintendo keeps their current policies I can see them doing a large layoff in the next 2 years, closing offices within the same 2 years, and lastly pulling out of the console sector and focusing solely on the Handhelds and selling rights to 3rd party's for none Nintendo system in 5 years. I don't see them recovering from their current situation without taking a gamble with new tech..
P.S. I don't want Nintendo to fail..I'm a huge fan of everything they've done, but they are a sinking ship, and without something magical happening, that ship will keep sinking slowly.
