Families in developed countries are having less and less children; the videogame media as a whole shifted target and is now considered an acceptable media to 30yo people; people want a solid online infrastructure and medium specs to play the game at least close to the HD resolution that became the new standard for tv makers.
>>324026976 I like Nintendo games and I've owned every Nintendo system, but everytime I'm on a Nintendo console it feels like I'm going back 6 years in time. They have outdated interfaces, garbage online capabilities and underpowered hardware. Literally the only reason to get a Nintendo console nowadays is if you really enjoy Nintendo games and you won't have 100% retention of that audience from generation to generation and you're gonna have trouble capturing a new audience if you keep gimping your tech to be half a decade behind your opponents.
They also went out of their way to alienate those loyalists when the Wii came out, so even less people came with them to Wii U.
>>324026976 >Is it really all because of 3rd party? What kind of the 3rd party are we talking about? Activision and Ubisoft published at least half, if not more, of the shovelware found on the Wii combined. Do people really want the most recent sports games from EA? Or are they talking about developers like Naughty Dog, Platinum, Rockstar and others?
>>324026976 3rd party is a huge part of it, they have horrible marketing though, NoA is garbage at localization, they blatantly disregard feedback and basically call fans ideas stupid, they have horrible policies, their online infrastructure is garbage, the list just goes on and on...they have no idea what the fuck they're doing anymore, they keep shitting on their few remaining fans, it's only a matter of time till they end up mobile/HH only
>>324027683 Nintendo still has a grip on it. I think Sony gave up trying to corner a decent sized market, Microsoft hasn't bothered, and cell phones and other handheld multimedia devices have become increasingly common.
>>324027503 Not him, but it's not that simple. The 360 had a much smaller launch (manufacturing trouble) and its first two years were pretty slow because most people didn't even have HD TVs then. The fact that Xbone has turned into a two-country console also means that its future sales potential is much more limited.
>>324027347 This exactly. I like Nintendo games, but it's kinda hard to like them when everything else feels aged in a bad way and hardware is generally so shitty.
If they wanted to be big again, they would need to get less smug about "the Nintendo way" and admit that they haven't evolved fast enough to keep up with others. I guess that they have to be realizing it by now, but the fluke of luck known as Wii just loaded them with ridiculous overconfidence for nearly a decade.
>>324028801 https://www.nintendo.co.uk/News/2009/Wii-sales-in-UK-top-six-million-in-less-than-three-years-251830.html >The landmark figure, achieved in less than three years on sale, makes Wii the fastest selling video game console in UK history and the quickest ever to reach six million units sold. They did.
>>324030346 >In Japan, the system is called the Super Famicom (Japanese: スーパーファミコン Hepburn: Sūpā Famikon?, officially adopting the abbreviated name of its predecessor, the Family Computer), or SFC for short. Let me guess, you were just pretending to be retarded?
>>324026121 Pretty much F-Zero X on the n64 was their last truly awesome game. Miyamoto got old and retired from dev work. Yokoi died. Aeonma or however you spell his name is a fucking hack. Iwata was an amusing fellow but as a businessman he left much to be desired.
>>324031389 You do realize that there's a difference between renaming a product and an entirely different product altogether, right? You wanna show me your two bundled NES controllers with a built-in microphone in controller 2?
>>324031685 You know it's very common for their to be different models between countries and even within the same country. Plus the differences between the two is so minute it's really easily to play games of different regions.
Or are you're going to be contrarian and try to claim you honestly believe there are 6 different genesis consoles because they're all slightly different.
>>324031386 >>324029052 How To Save Nintendo: Not "Make the NX Exactly Like the PS4 With the Exact Same Library of 3rd Party Games" Edition
Fix the fucking games, other devs have found out how to compete with Mario, Metroid and Zelda since the NES and Nintendo seems to have no idea what was appealing about them in the first place.
>Mario Actually mostly ok. There's still nothing really compares to Mario. A few tweaks though.
-Have 2D and 3D series running concurrently(sort of already done) -make NSMB less rehashy. SMB 1, 3 and World are incredibly unique. All the NSMBs are basically the same game -give 3D Mario coherent worlds. not open worlds but like 64 and sunshine. the hub in galaxy is shit
>Metroid Just do Prime. Prime was perfect. Maybe make it more actiony. I get the idea behind focusing on the exploration, still do that, but also give us some arcadey fps action. Wii-mote controls were actually really good in Prime collection.
>Zelda almost everything about modern zelda is just wrong. Here's what it needs -huge mostly open world with actual secrets. not a pointless meme open world like MGSV, but just look at Zelda 1 for inspiration -more combat and more variety of combat. hordes like in Hyrule warriors, bigger common enemies and mini bosses that play like DMC. huge boss monsters that play like Monster Hunter -items that aren't just glorified keys -bring back and expand rpg elements. magic, multiple swords that aren't just storyline events -difficulty
Zelda should compete with things like skyrim. it used to be a beautiful combo of arcade action and rpg exploration and equipment
>Online first of all make a real account system. there's no reason i should have to rebuy all my VC games every time a new system comes out. there's no goddamn reason i should have to buy VC games separately for 3DS and Wii U.
actually create unique online features beyond basic multiplayer. lots of games like Animal Crossing and Pokemon lend themselves to the possibility
