[EuroGamer] Nintendo NX is a portable console with detachable controllers + powered by Nvidia Tegra technology - Page 40

post #391 of 406
All these people trying to act like they know what's best for Nintendo and how to run their business lol, if Nintendo didn't know what they were doing or what they could afford to do and when, they'd have gone under like Sega did.

Sega doesn't have the behemoth franchise that is Mario & Pokemon keeping them up, but thats a huge reason why Nintendo take these leaps and paths down different routes (speaking as for consoles/systems) because they have that huge revenue from them. Sega did the same thing but had nothing to fall back on, Sonic certainly couldn't carry them. But I agree, its not like Nintendo are making these decisions without spending millions on research before hand.

Tiny list of various articles you can find, it ain't new information nintendo has been hemorrhaging money for a while which is why a lot of us face palm whenever we see nintendo continue to do a lot of stupid mistakes time and time again. A lot of us here obviously don't work for the company and opinion is tiny but majority of us here at least from what i read have similar thoughts we can't speak for company but the fact of the matter is they are indeed loosing money for the past few years.

As explained before sega unfortunately did not have as much money as nintendo did which caused them to go under, nintendo can afford to gamble on things but only for so long.

Why do nintendo fanboys get so butt hurt for anything said about company lol, we all like the company and want to see it prosper as well but they continue to do a lot of stupid things for so long and its frustrating to see them become blinded by their own name/fame/pride.

Doesn't sound like making of successful product is it?

It's the state of the economy. The only way to propel into the future is to have products as versatile as dependable.

Sega wasn't just a matter of "not having enough money".
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Sega_video_game_consoles/

They released five pieces of home console hardware in a period of ten years (89-99).
Not to mention Shenmu was a 50 Million dollar game at a time when 50 million dollar games did not exist.

Oppositely Nintendo has not deviated from their 5 year release cycle by more than 1 year, even with their worst performing home console ever, and it's not insignificant that they were the most successful "hardware manufacturer" of last generation.

https://www.statista.com/statistics/268966/total-number-of-game-consoles-sold-worldwide-by-console-type/
If you include the lifetime sales of last gen with current consoles, Nintendo has 114 Million units sold and Sony has 127 Million units sold.
Sony is doing better, but not by a lot.

Nintendo made one big mistake, and that was mostly just the name "Wii U". The hardware itself isn't even the biggest problem with that console.
The point that Nintendo has never made a "no compromise" "pure performance" console is true, maybe they would do well with that kind of design, but again it's far from insignificant that ten years ago they invented hardware that was effectively a license to print money.

Nintendo's history is not a long string of failures, it's a rollercoaster of extreme highs and lows. They're in a low spot, and we haven't seen their correction yet.

Maybe a year from now you might have reason to talk about Nintendo repeatedly making mistakes, but we aren't at that point yet.

Nintendo still seems to have a decent relationship with Japanese developers and I think it is possible for them to get support from NA ones (the recent Ubisoft quotes are encouraging) Since Nintendo appears to be shooting to have a lot of first party titles within 6 months of launch they should be able to bolster their launch lineup even without much 3rd party support (of course if the system is shown to sell well developers will be inclined to develop for it)

Seems like Nintendo has been out of good ideas for a long time. Haven't cared about anything they did for the last decade. It's all boring, small-minded stuff.
post #398 of 406
with the Wii-u it was two things "1" the name "2" YES it was the hardware a few devolpers who didnt care if they upset Nintendo, POINT BLANK said, they could not make their games run that good due to very low clock-speed of the CPU thumb.gif

I haven't heard developers directly criticize the clockspeed but I have read that they had issues with the overall processing power of the CPU. I've also read that there were issues with the SDK (which intensified the issue of garbage CPU)

Nintendo has been dead a long time. Let it die gracefully, not with this crap. How many times can you play a new version Mario or Zelda? Seriously.
