No, but it felt like a punch in the gut. I've been playing nintendo stuff since the 80s. I own a Wii U, but I've mostly moved on to other things. I still can't help but root for Nintendo. They're like vidya comfort food for me.

Nintendo announced a two-screen handheld. Bottom screen is touch.

As someone who primarily plays Sony games, this is a good thing. Nintendo has always had good games that would mostly be better in handheld (if they're not there already), but their hardware (especially their god awful controllers barring the GC) and system infrastructure has always been shit.

Nintendo for handheld and mobile games on the go.
Sony for sitting on the couch with your buddies.

Doesn't matter. It's still a secondary controller. Ever system has god tier secondary controllers, sometimes made by other companies, sometimes not. It's more shit you have to buy, and the reason you have to buy it is because the controller Nintendo included with the console is fucking retarded.

Also

This, at the very least it'll be a good wake up call for stubborn Nintentoddlers in the long run. And damn do they need it, after shamelessly supporting amiibo, controller gimmicks, scalping, casualization of the main franchises and so on.

Honestly i'm worried about the future of the series, even before this announcement. The last game was depressingly easy.

No, it would under no circumstances be better. If you want a statue, buy a statue. If you want content for a video game that's not included with the game out of the box, download it. You shouldn't have to snipe some faggot on Ebay to get extra content for a video game.

>>287299349
Yeah, but the DS was a superior console. This is just the CDi again. They're gonna make some shitty mobile games with Nintendo characters, fail miserably, and be pushed into the corner with the virtual boy and the 64 disc drive.

Fuck this god damn shit. I have allways had a powerful PC, but I've allways respected the quirky dodgyness of console/nintendo hardware, because those limitations and what not allow the developers to think outside the box to make things happen.

If every single game becomes a multiplat, it'll just become bland and no sparkle anymore. I look at the steam store page, every day there are 20 new releases all with generic names and design as the ones the day before.

That is the future we're choosing.

I was stunned because Nintendo seemed to generally disfavor the mobile market of games that don't appear on their systems. I am ultimately curious as what will happen to the 3DS from here on. If the new mobile games do really well then it could start to put a clamp on the 3DS.

The last time Nintendo announced that they'd support a "third pillar" and that it would not replace any existing systems, they immediately dropped their "second pillar."

That third pillar was Nintendo DS and the second pillar was GBA.

>>287296416
So Nintendo announced that they would be replacing the N3DS and the WiiU within a couple of years, making both worthless, and you think that this will draw a new market into their platforms?

The WiiU's only been out for 2 years, and the N3DS just launched. To me, that's the sign of blood in the water.

I was full TUMBLING DOWN mode last night, but looking at everything now there are some entirely good things (a real Nintendo account system, possibly extending to PC gaming).
It is possible the mobile games might not be entirely shit, I don't see a problem with $5 one-time-pay WarioWare style minigame collections. I'm just worried because the mobile platform is so inherently shitty and cancerous and Nintendo isn't directly developing the games, there's plenty more potential for it to turn into microtransaction "pay 0.99 for Mario to jump higher" bullshit.
Some of the speculation about the NX is also promising or at least interesting, like it potentially being a standalone/third platform "Nitnendo Tablet" sort of thing, like a powerful WiiU controller with both touchscreen and buttons options.

More important than anything is that Nintendo is acknowledging they can't just sit on their Wii/DS/3DS money forever and are actually taking drastic action to stay relevant, which is very promising for the future if they can avoid selling their soul.

1. No they didn't, you fucking retard
2. Yes, every single console by every single hardware manufacturer has been "replaced within a couple years". At the absolute earliest NX will be replacing either system maybe half a year earlier than is typical, assuming it's a direct replacement to either at all.
>making both worthless
Because everyone knows once the next gen starts, the old consoles and games disappear and publishers ignore them completely.

Except, if you were actually paying attention, this is the exact opposite of what is true. They said they are more focused on consoles than ever and announced their next generation console. Mobile gaming is just going to be a supplement to what they are really doing.

Honestly, I'd rather see them try this ambitious conglomerate of the mobile and console markets and risk turning into another King.com then them recede into an increasingly shaky business model and just die. Also I keep thinking back to how Celebi had to be unlocked through japanese cell phones.

No, but it's the logical conclusion.

3DS is pretty much done and can only pump out a few more games during these two last years it has

why are people acting like the NX is going to come out next year? At the earliest it'll be out in 2017.

By then the Wii U will have been out for 5 years since it came out in 2012. So a 5-6 year console lifespan just like every other nintendo home console

>>287304749
Considering how many people just ponied up money for the N3DS, I genuinely look forward to people still sucking Nintendo's dick by getting the new handheld the very second it releases, and talking about how awesome it is.

Personally, I knew that the N3DS was just a hold over until they would release their next handheld, likely in 1-2 years. Maybe that one will actually be on par with the PSP. After all, it's been a solid decade. One would think that they might get around to matching the power and ease of use of the PSP at some point.

Nintendo has been shit for about 10 years now. I'm amazed it's taken you all this long to realize it. They never cared about you. You are not the audience they think they deserve. They want children and grandparents to buy their games-- not manchildren. They sold you out with the Wii and they're selling you out again by going mobile. They want nothing to do with you.

what they should do is make like advertisment type games on the iphone and shit that advertise their handheld and console games, IF they make the dumb descion to make real games on phones they fucked themselves because then people will just ask them to port their other real games to iphone not wanting their hardware effectively killing them

If we see more pokedex 3d's on iphone nintendo will give fans a taste of whats on their console but if they release zelda iphone edition they kill all future handheld zeldas because people will want zelda for iphone 2.

Think of their iphone games as companion apps with no specific companion game, now if I am wrong and they do make full fledged games nintendo killed themselves and get no sympathy from me

yes, I cried for the better half of the day. Ninty basically gave our enemies in war ammunition to shoot at us, the fans. I never thought ninty would do such a fucking horrid thing. now we will never hear the end of 'phonetendo' that's what we get for supporting Nintendo so long...

but then I thought this could be a good move. it'll be hell defending ninty for the next year, but they know what is best. The mobile move will essentially make them enough yen to support even bigger and better consoles and dedicated handhelds. and then the suffering in the meantime will pay off...

its all about delayed gratification. best solution IMO... Just avoid /v/ for a year. once NX comes out the sonyggers will have hell to pay. they will be purged from /v/ and ran back to Neogaf.

so don't fret too much OP. were in it together, and Ninty always comes out strong.

My argument to that is that the PSP is 10 years old. We've gotten to the point to where that kind of graphical fidelity would be very cheap, and Nintendo still hasn't matched it.

Personally, I don't care. I won't be buying their next handheld, nor their next console. Not until their VC library is actually worth a damn, and will be free to redownload on all subsequent purchases.

Yes, I will vote with my wallet, and I will vote over some of the most insignificant things.

3DS is at the age where Nintendo handhelds get replaced.

Wii U is doing so badly that they should end it a year early.

The nintendo NX is a hybrid console/handheld that shares the same games allowing people to play where they want to whether as a handheld or console.
>>
>>287296287
No.

Why?

Because either one of three things happen. We might start getting great mobile games. Nintendo might try and have it turn out shit, find out it doesn't work as planned and return to business as usual. Or Nintendo might love it, put out a Nintendo Steam Machine and just make crappy PC/iOS games from now on. The first would be good, the second no different than what we have, and the third no different except I could play my Steam games on the console.

I don't buy that, mostly because no other publisher could pull it out.

Not a single game on the core business has seen an increase in their sales from one year to another thanks to the implementation of a mobile app for the mobile market to catch their attention.

The only model that works currently is to make a game and make money of it with in-game transactions.

also that classic tactic of us nintendo fans hearing shitty news and saying "ITS BETTER IN THE LONG RUN BECAUSE NOW X" (now more people will know about the ips and will want to buy consoles and that money will go into making new zeldas) is delusion.

the reason why nintendo branched out into mobile with their ips is so they can find a new place of revenue instead of working on expensive 1st party games for their traditional consoles.

i'm telling you all wii sports, wii fit, wii music, wii play, wii party selling 100 million units broke nintendo. they dont want to waste 4 years working on a masterpiece only for it to sell averagely when they spent 2 weeks making wii fit and it sold outrageously. they want another blue ocean the wii has BROKE them.

thats why gameplay and content has taken a hit in their recent games. thats why the last 3 console zelda games starred toon links/cell shading. thats why mario kart 8 was bare bones and no battle mode, its why mario party 10 is literally a wii party reskin with less maps than any of the 9 other games in the series had.

iwata summed it up himself during one of his iwata asks "there was a time where we thought the longer we worked on a game the more sales it would get, ever since the wii we now know this to be false"

everything looks fisherprice now, damn.

I don't get why people are forcing some form of upset status over this shit. Nintendo announced sometime in 2013 or last year that they had plans to put their IPs on mobile platforms to try and lure more people to their own platforms (3DS/Wii U being the ones in mind right NOW and for the foreseeable future, even with the announcement of NX).
All Nintendo did besides out NX being in development was announce which company they are getting help from doing this shit. Literally nothing will change other than Mario and other iconic Nintendo figures will make official, licensed appearances in mobile games.

tl;dr - Stop whining over literally nothing new.
>>
>>287310120
you clearly didn't grow up with older nintendo games.

hey enjoy every new zelda being cell shaded out of pure laziness and enjoy all future nintendo titles being fischer price non intensive low polycount babby shit
>>
>>287310036
>nitendo is bascially saying "fuck it" for the Wii U.
This annoys me the most. Do I have anything to look forward to after 2015? Probably not much, which makes the Wii U's library quite small. I can understand wanting to put out a new system to get people to buy it but c'mon, there are people who picked up your current system for a reason.

The announcement will just help to kill off the Wii U as well, since nobody is going to grab a new one when NX is coming out in a few years. 2018/Late 2017 most likely, but if they haven't bought a Wii U yet, they'll be content to just wait.

If you purchased early, you knew that was a risk. If you didn't, then you knew the library was already small, and you have nobody but yourself to blame.

I don't own a WiiU, and I don't even like my 3DS or my Wii, but come on, anon. This is common sense. Take the lesson and remember it the next time the company you like shits out a new console. Perhaps you will wait a few years to see how it is doing.

I don't think it's laziness as much as Nintendo making a concerted effort to NOT look like the modern standard of "AAA GAMING".

The last time Nintendo had a piece of hardware that was at or near contemporary technological standards was with the Gamecube, a decade ago. They've spent the last 10 years developing games on weak hardware, and somewhere along the way they probably realized that they shouldn't even bother chasing after the high fidelity realism of their rivals, because they couldn't hope to keep pace.

Instead, they focus on clean, iconographic visuals and put their focus on rock solid performance, which probably sets them apart from the competition more than their cartoon graphics. Plus, it likely helps to keep their dev costs in check, as they transition to HD content and an increasingly niche fanbase to cater to.
>>
>>287311331
Did you ever play Mario 64? Donkey Kong Country? Smash 64? Ocarina of Time? Kirby 64 and Dream Land 3? They were all far more realistic than the plastic, overly cartoony sterile murder garbage they spew out today in order to appeal to soccer moms afraid of letting their children play mature media with lovecraftian influences and actual atmosphere.
>>
>>287311373
I liked the N64. Of course, I believe I was in 5th grade when it released. I got the GC before I got my PS2. I have roughly 6-8 games for the GC, and around 60 games for the PS2. That was the point that I decided to abandon Nintendo, and start checking out the competition.

confirmed for having no clue what you are talking about

it's because they used mainly primary colors, lower polycounts, and less realistic textures with shittier lighting. it makes the game not as good MUH GRAFIXly and it comes out "cartoony"

making something cartoony is just easier to do then making a game with really good graphics
>>

Mario games, 2D or 3D, have never been graphical showcases. I've been playing Mario games since 1989, and that's total revisionist bullshit.

Even back on the NES, most of the major 3rd party companies put out prettier, more technologically demanding games than Nintendo did. Nothing Nintendo published came close to late generation Capcom and Konami graphics. Even Sunsoft was doing some high end shit.

Sega, in all honesty, is very financially secure nowadays (those arcade and pachinko sales are ridiculous). They could definitely make a console if they wanted to.

Nintendo needs to stay in the eyes of the children if they want them to grow into loyal customers.

Video games may die, but we will always have the 40 years of excellence where games were being made for and by true video game enthusiasts, just think of the thousands of games you missed while you were growing up. If video games become too changed from what they once were, there will always at least be that.

For those too lazy or stupid to actually listen to the conference, here's a summary:

1. DeNA apparently makes good mobile games and applications, so Nintendo is letting them handle nintnedo IPs and series on mobile platforrms. They'll also be makingthe new reward points system to replace Club Nintendo.

2. Nintendo will still be focusing on dedicated game platforms as they always have. We won't see market strategies used in the mobile market bleed over to game consoles without special care taken to preserve the expected experience, and visa versa (no microtransactions in consoles, no $60 mobile games)

3. A new Nintendo platform, the "NX" mentioned previously, was mentioned, but only briefly. More as a deterrent to the doomwishers that will attack Nintendo for dealing in mobile games when they said they had no plans to.

That's about the size of it. Iwata really wanted people to know that Nintendo isn't Nintendoomed, they're just trying to evolve with the market. Seems like the NX might have some connectivity to mobile devices and PCs, as well as to the WiiU and 3DS.

that doesn't sounds more like EA than nintendo. nintendo wouldn't do that.

>>287313406
If you sent them proof that you owned all that could they reactivate it? Probably not, Nintendo are completely fucking backwards with this shit.
>>
>>287315565
Five years ago I would have said that Nintendo would never make freemium games. They're not your friends, they're just a little behind.
>>
>>287315446
Yea, it means Nintendo has more of an interest in making mobile games so they bought a larger % while the mobile games company isn't as interested in Nintendo.

I know, right? I personally just don't get what's with all the people clamoring about being the "Nintendoomed Prophet" and whatnot. All they did was announce that they will potentially be making ? amount of games from ? amount of series for mobile devices. Along with that, even if you didn't already take the hint, they just announced that they would be having another console for the next generation.

In the mean time, they'll probably be talking about the Wii U and 3DS next in the inevitable upcoming Nintendo Direct soon.

So, what is everyone freaking out about?
>>
>>287315569
>Probably not, Nintendo are completely fucking backwards with this shit.
They have some of the nicest customer services though.

>Old japanese jews have been pressuring Nintendo to get into mobile for years

>>287315756
Nintendo just went 3rd party, it's not really big news at all, why should anyone be freaking out?
>>
>>287297527
The difference is that Squenix doesn't have a tiny thing called HARDWARE MARKET to lose while Nintendo does.

People need to understand taht the mobile games will most likely be used as advertisement for their console/handheld games. "Did you enjoy the game? Well you can get a shitload more if you buy the game on the WiiU/3DS. Here is a convenient placed link that leads you tot the e-shop."

They will make small games with the "Nintendo spirit" but they will never replace Nintendo's main income. As Iwata himself said, the smart device market is fairly unstable and it's not worth risking your future on it. They will use the smart device market rather then try to make a big profit from it.
I trust Iwata more than any other CEO of any other company simply because they guy loves games, he plays them, he makes them. So yeah, I would say that he knows what we want. "We" as in Nintendo's core fanbase.
>>
>>287315952
>Nintendo just went 3rd party
No they didn't.

And for the record, no one is freaking out. People are shitposting.
>>
Nintendo is doomed doomed doomed doomed doomed doomed

>>287296287
Not really. Here's the breakdown for you:

>They'll port old games and remakes. Generally things that don't cost a lot and will appeal to the idiots who already emulate SNES games on their phone. And honestly, this buys right into "le sprite art" games anyway.

>Nintendo is stagnant anyway, so something like this is A: not changing their tactics and B: won't matter, because they're FUCKING STAGNANT

>Nintendo have always been better at portable games anyway. I mean, there wouldn't be a mobile market without them to begin with

>I haven't bought a Nintendo console since the Wii anyway, just like most of the rest of the world. So who is this really effecting?

>the 3DS is still their precious little bitch, so they won't abandon that right away, even if they DO go full mobile.

What exactly is there to worry about/

So? Sega went full PC/mobile. OK, Sonic Dash (or whatever) is the best Sonic game in fucking years...
Nintendo is more or less putting their pinkie toes into he water here, and likely won't go full retard with any of it. At worst, we'll end up with android games that tie in with Wii U games with cross save files or something stupid like that. Nothing too major.

>Leveraging the strength of Nintendo's intellectual property (IP) and game development skills in combination with DeNA's world-class expertise in mobile games, both companies will develop and operate new game apps based on Nintendo's IP, including its iconic game characters, for smart devices. The alliance is intended to complement Nintendo's dedicated video game systems business and extend Nintendo's reach into the vast market of smart device users worldwide. Under the alliance, DeNA will also be able to strengthen its gaming business at a global scale by leveraging Nintendo's IP. To ensure the quality of game experience that consumers expect from this alliance of Nintendo and DeNA, only new original games optimized for smart device functionality will be created, rather than porting games created specifically for the Wii U home console or the Nintendo 3DS portable system.

They're making games for mobile and PC. How is that not 3rd party?
>>
>>287316091
>They'll port old games and remakes
They literally said they're absolutely not doing this, any games they make will be new games generally using existing IPs.

They are giving a 3rd party company the RIGHTS to use the Nintendo IP's. That's the difference. It's the same as when they make Mario Kart or F-Zero arcade games.

Also I don't see the PC there.

So:
Nintendo - Nintendo console exclusive stuff
DeNA - Uses Nintendo IP's to make games for smart devices.

I have a question, Nintendo must have had some say in that Pokedex app a while back, no?

So why didn't people say they were going third party then?

Because they're the ones in control of their IPs they decide what they're doing with it.

They already said they would be doing this, like forever ago.

All that mentioning of leveraging IP, using smartphones to advertise and attract people to Nintendo platforms, they've been saying this for almost a year now.

And that is EXACTLY what this is. They aren't bringing 3DS games to smartphones, or even Virtual Console games like SMB. They are getting a company to make content with their IP, that's it.

I'm not a fan of it, and it's pretty much guaranteed shit either way because mobile, but it will hopefully at least be avoidable, and if nothing else it at least does NOT take manpower off of developing 3DS and Wii U games.
>>
>>287316328
Please show me where in that paragraph it says what you just said. because the actual conference has them saying that DeNA will be making games for mobile devices while Nintendo will continue making games for their dedicated gaming platformes. The new NX will have some connectivity with the 3ds, WiiU, mobile devices, and PC, but they said nothing about making games for mobile or PC except that Nintendo will not be doing it.
>>
>>287316730
Don't get ahead of yourself, Nintoddler. Now, I know you're used to having no games, and I understand that you might want something similar, but instead, you could try a platform that has some games. Maybe one of the ones you missed out on because you kept shitposting about it nonstop.
>>
So DeNA's stock prices didn't change at all since the announcement which is surprising. Nintendo owns 10% of the company and if everything goes well, I could see either Nintendo buying more or someone else buying them. Why aren't people buying their stocks?

>>287316869
>Iwata: Nintendo and DeNA will jointly develop and operate gaming applications for smart devices in global markets. With this alliance, new entertainment that utilizes Nintendo’s IP will be provided globally via smart devices.

They are both making games for mobile, not DeNA alone. Nintendo is serious about this and is putting their developers into this.
>>
>>287316024
>People need to understand taht the mobile games will most likely be used as advertisement for their console/handheld games.

Problem is that there's nothing to suggest the mobile market would move to consoles. If anything, the mobile market will stay on mobile.

It might not be that bad, but it's still got grave implications for the future of Nintendo as a hardware maker.

Nintendo isn't just licensing out-- they are making it official with this company, because they traded shares of each other's stock. That's not the same as a merger since it was a small percentage, but it shows that Nintendo is serious about entering the mobile space and they want to make things more permanent than just a one-time deal.

No, YOU have nothing that suggest that. Nintendo obviously has something or they wouldn't be making such a move.
DeNA said that they could get up to 100M daily active user with the Nintendo IP's.

Do you really believe that a company would make such a freaking huge move without doing their research?

>If anything, the mobile market will stay on mobile.
Oh wise anon please tell me what information you have that is suggesting this. All the information I have are suggesting that the vidya console/PC market is growing faster and faster including pretty much every single demographics, including mobile user. Other data suggest that the mobile user and console user market usually overlap, meaning that the console user has a smart device which could be used for advertisement.

I haven't used a Ninty console as my main device since n64. I own a Wii U and enjoyed, no regrets, but I spend way more time with PC and ps4 these days.

I can't help but root for Nintendo. I don't know what it is, but the way they just seemingly exist in a vacuum and go on as if the 90s never ended is endearing.

I hope they keep doing their thing and this turns out to be some cross promotional little thing.

Why do people keep saying that Nintendo is just dipping their toes into the market?

Iwata is fully serious about conquering the mobile gaming market.

Iwata: The fact is, however, it is a highly competitive market and only a handful of content providers have been able to show enduring results. If Nintendo cannot make it to that handful of winners, it does not make sense for us to be engaged in the software business on smart devices.

If you were born in the 90s your opinion on this doesn't matter.

If you weren't born at some point around 1985 you have no frame of reference for when Nintendo was actually good.

You grew up on e-celebs, DLC, and cinematic experience TPS.

>b-but anon I emulated all those games!

It's not the same with save states and GameFAQs open on your smart phone, faggot.

You simply don't belong here. Go to neoGAF or reddit and discuss epic e-celebs, podcasts, indie meme games, etc. I've watched you shit up this board long enough.

Born in 89 with an NES hand-me-down since money was always tight.
