EngieBengie commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Confidently Outlines Nintendo...:

I agree with these statements whole-heartedly. It might sound harsh but the casual crowd has outlived its usefulness. The success of the Wii was a much needed thing to get Nintendo back on track after the commercial failure of the GameCube. With the Wii U, they confused the casual crowd AND aren't satisfying hardcore demand. It's either one or the other. Ultimately, it's those who have been with Nintendo all along who should get the special treatment - The Hardcore Nintendo fans.

Not saying that they have to abandon the casuals but a MUCH bigger emphasis on Nintendo's hardcore series such as Metroid, Star Fox, F-Zero, Custom Robo, etc. and producing new AAA IPs like Xenoblade and the Last Story should slowly get them back on track. From time to time, they can make something like Wii Fit or whatever but only from time to time.

The analysts aren't half-wrong when they say that Nintendo should go to Smartphones because that is where the casuals are at. So, if you want to pursue your success with casuals, go to Smart Phones, if you want to keep doing what you do best, remain in the console market and make more hardcore franchises for the fans. That's my stance in the situation and I hope these words from Miyamoto wake Iwata up regarding what he'll do in the future.



EngieBengie commented on The Man Responsible For Reviving Nintendo's Re...:

This is something that has to be said: Nintendo's top management needs a good, clean swipe and get replaced with more open people. Nintendo is my favorite game company but there is no good that I can see when they need to make him shut up or by making him not work there anymore. With the bad relationship with 3rd party devs, Indies were essential and then they do this. Really, top management neeeds to change their games and fast.
