I don't care whether this or that franchise gets an outing on Wii U, I just get the feeling that the current management at Nintendo isn't going to have the luxury of choosing to let this or that franchise rest. They'll be pulling out all the stops to survive the current economic uncertainty and shifting patterns in the gaming marketplace. I'm prepared to be proven wrong, but hopefully I'll have several years for that to be determined.

This. Exactly.

Times- they are a' changin'. Nintendo has to play their whole hand if they want to weather this storm.

Except tryin to make games of all their franchises would either destroy them financially or result in low quality and content (which I doubt Nintendo would sacrifice quality for quantity). And low quality/content would lead to a different downfall. Some people don't realize the development of a game these days costs millions and, with how many notable franchises Nintendo has, they need to be strategic on which franchises they focus on. Their Mario money will afford them a few mistakes but they are not going to spend resources on franchises tht don't seem financially rewarding, they'd rather spam us with Mario games and take less risks. I'm sure we'll get core games and innovation too, but they are gonna play their cards wisely instead of their whole hand.

I apologize, I didn't know I was in the presence of a game designer and captain of industry. It was a figure of speech, man. A hyperbole, if you will. A deliberate exaggeration on the author's part. I don't think Nintendo is going to actively publish every blessed franchise they've ever unleashed within mere months of one another, but I DO believe we are going to see a healthy percentage of their 1st-party games make an appearance over the span of the Wii U's life cycle. This "spam us with Mario games" stuff is ridiculous- it sounds ridiculous, it seems ridiculous, and it is ridiculous. Are we going to get a few more Mario games on the console? Yea. But nowhere near the amount that you and a few others seems to be prophesying.

EDIT: They are going to "play their whole hand," as I said. Spread things around. Show us some 1st-party stuff that hasn't surfaced for awhile. Not "spam us with Mario."

Odds are Sony and Microsoft are nearing the end of designing their consoles so it should be comparable. I could be wrong of course and they could sell it at a huge loss and have consoles twice as powerful as the Wii U. I'm going with the first one.

I don't think the company will go bankrupt publishing an F-Zero game or Metroid alongside Mario and Pikmin. Depending upon third party support would be the far riskier proposition. I for one am hoping for some gambling with quirky software. Another try at Wii Music with the enhanced horsepower of the Wii U combined with a more robust online environment could be brilliant.

in the simple matter of power, not sony neither microsoft console's would have to deal with the streaming through the game pad. That could relieve some stress in the hardware and increace the "power", or cut the budget and create a not so different console without loosing.
