1Bass_X0Tue 11th Feb 2014 Nobody wants to be downsized. But it happens. Sega didn't want to stop producing consoles either but they were forced to. FORCED being the key word. Nintendo doesn't want to either. Even though there are many fans of Nintendo, I'm not disputing that, its clear the Wii U was in third place even before the PS4 and XBOX One was released. So Nintendo being forced to become a third party developer may become a possibility in the next few years. So if it happens, what are the positives to it happening? I know there are negatives about it happening, but lets focus on the positives. Nintendo wouldn't die if it were to happen, it would just be a new era for gaming. Nintendo will adapt and still come out strong. The 3DS is still doing very well, its just the Wii U that isn't, so maybe even if Nintendo is forced to produce games for XBOX and PlayStation, they could still make their own handhelds with its own exclusive games. The first thing is that there would be a much wider choice of games for the players. No longer would Nintendo-only fans look on in envy at their XBOX and PlayStation owning friends for having games that won't appear on Nintendo. No longer would Nintendo-only fans have to endure crappy ports and delays for those games. Or if you are currently or intend to be a multi-console owner at some point to get the best of both worlds, Nintendo and another console, then you only have to buy one console for the best of both worlds. And since software developers won't have to produce a port for a Nintendo console, that frees up resources to make larger, better or other new games for us. Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne. I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!
