Quote from: What Defines A Monster? on April 14, 2014, 09:20:43 AMThat does mean no more installments of Zelda or Metroid... Probably they'll find a way to shoehorn Mario in there somehow.
Quote from: Jeville on April 14, 2014, 10:35:49 AMWhy? They can still maintain the gaming business. Sony and Microsoft have other venues, so why can't Nintendo?
Quote from: What Defines A Monster? on April 14, 2014, 09:20:43 AMNo it's not.
QuoteSeems that you're angry about Nintendo's new focus, but them abandoning game consoles and focusing on something that can make them profit seems perhaps a smart idea.
Quote from: What Defines A Monster? on April 14, 2014, 07:45:10 PMBecause, to be quite frank about it, they just can't afford it. Sony and Microsoft have massive, multibillion dollar war chests from their external divisions that have, so far, shielded them financially from the fallout of venture losses. The abysmal Vita, for example, doesn't run the risk of bankrupting Sony.Nintendo doesn't have that buffer. They went this year, as a company whole, from a net gain (and projected profit of 100 billion yen) all the way down to a net loss of over 35 billion. Even after accepting responsibility and slashing his salary in half, Saturo Iwata knows that he and his company are in deep trouble. The board is looking long and hard at his leadership and there has been talk of a change.

Quote from: What Defines A Monster? on April 15, 2014, 02:21:52 AMhint- Injecting yourself into a conversation simply to shout "I'm old! Pay attention to me!" has little to no relevance on the topic at hand.
QuoteAnd, despite your best optimism, I've seen that arrogance, hubris and the inability to change can destroy even the strongest company.
QuoteYou talk about Nintendo's cash reserves- except that no company with a loss-leading single focus can continue to survive on simple cash reserves for long periods of time. With Nintendo's downward spiral, if things keep going downhill within half a decade those reserves will be completely gone.
