 Not true. Not true at all (as well as a few others who was saying Wii failed).

Wii is doing VERY WELL in the apac regions. It is just NOT doing well in US.

It has a tendency of that because a lot of Wii games are NOT in English and NOT made for Western crowds.

It has been making a killing for the last few years in Asia - so much so that Sony and Microsoft have to release action feedback controllers to try to corner the market that Wii has taken.

And the principle of international business for the last 10 years is, if something is selling well in East Asia (China, HK, Japan, Korea, TW, Singapore, Malaysia, etc), who needs US/Europe? East Asia's current population size and spending power easily outstrips US by a mile. US is in recession, Asia is in growth.

Nintendo is doing very well.

I am playing nintendo 3ds every day, there are some great games on it like:

Super Mario Bros 2

Super Mario 3D land

Paper Mario: Sticker Star

Luigi's Mansion 2 (best looking game on 3ds imho)

Zelda Ocarina of Time 3d

Monster hunter 3 ultimate

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy

 

And there are a lot more games that are coming out soon

In october they will release first 3d pokemon game for nintendo 3ds: pokemon X and Y

 

Nintendo games are not about great graphics. It is all about having fun :) :) :) :)

I guess it's just your work. Everyone I speak to still goes on about Mario, Zelda and Pokemon almost constantly.

 

Most recently Luigis Mansion 2, and Pokemon Black and White 2 (both 3DS titles) and especally Windwaker HD on the Wii-U.

 

Also, I'd like to point out that the Wii and DS have both sold MUCH more than PS3 or Xbox 360, but a very clear margin. So no, Nintendo has lost none of its magic, if anything Sony and Microsoft have. (Especially Sony, which have sold less PS3 consoles than PS1 or PS2.)

 

I guess it's just who you speak to.

Wii U is pretty awesome.  Mario Land is borderline mmo (by today's definition).   you can also download all the old classic games for around $1.  i play Excitebike every morning before work.

I think the prostitute mod corrupted your game files man. -elhefen

I got a N3DS because I thought 3d on a portable device would be cool. Only got 1 game for it Mario 64 3D and I only got that because I wanted to be Wario which you couldn't in the original. Kind of a waste of $60+ for a game I liked when I was younger but only pass as ok for me these days. Zelda: Ocarina of time would be good to relive too. Can't think of any game which would be better for Nintendo than the original Mario 64 (first 3d mario game) or the original Zelda 64 (first 3d zelda) It's only really good for kids starting out with gaming and when there for whatever reason is a total blackout and the pc, console and laptop exploded and you were the only one alone caught in a blackout then it would be alright.

 

Basicly if you like Mario, Zelda, Kirby, DK or w/e and desperate for the latest of those titles or want to relive the moments of back in the day again it would be alright for you because the real proper versions are only available through the console version which can't be replaced through emulation or any pc technology if you want to play the game as it was intended (on a portable handheld device). 

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

Who forgot it?  The Nintendo Wii outsold both Playstation 3 and XBox 360.

http://www.statista.com/topics/868/video-games/chart/937/best-selling-video-game-home-consoles/

The Nintendo DS back in December dethroned Playstation 2 as the best selling game console of all time.

Not approx. but a lot more powerfull than both. I am a console gamer at heart but I really can't fford to get all of them these days and TBH haven't the time to play a lot of games as I play MMO's. Zelda and Mario kart / Golf will help it out. The one I really want and am missing it a lot is a new F-zero now that would make me buy a Wii U.

On a side note nice pic there dave6660 one of my favourite movies ( I have 2 favourites ) of all time. Withnail and I being the other one.

Nintendo just hasn't been releasing great games going far to casual and gimmicky. To their defense, Xbox and PS started to try the same, though it seems sony grew smarter of how dumb an idea it was while Xbox... eh... probably not so much though we won't know until they actually announce the next system if kinnect is required.

 

Nintendo does release good series such as Mario or Zelda or Metroid... though the latest Zelda game for me fell flat on its face (sucks too they got characters down and then completely failed at everything that makes Zelda great and used the god damn gimmicky motion controls which suck and ruined the game). Anyways, mini-rant asside, nintendo just needs to get their barings straight. A good game doesn't need good graphics, sure, but they can't keep pushing for 'motion control' and other gimmicky stuff that doesn't do all that much to enhance the feel. The Wii U itself is... meh. 3Ds is a gimmick machine that honestly the best feature is having a thumb stick and its worst feature is the 3d the system is named after. 

 

Nintendo just keeps pushing itself to be irrelevant. They seem obsessed with their current direction that its alienating gamers. 3rd party users are much more intimidated by nintendo due to the way they handle games, and considering Nintendo will be behind in graphics each time, they just often will probably avoid it since releasing it cross platform makes more money and designing for their system means that they start off with worst off graphics which can be harder to design up for a PC to run very well.

 Nintendo Wii U Virtual Console coming after Spring update: Games will cost £3.49 for NES titles and £5.49 for SNES games. Users who have already bought versions of the Wii virtual console games will be able to transfer them across from their Wii for a special price of 99p and £1.49 respectively.....http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/119123-nintendo-wii-u-virtual-console

Yep.  I remember FF vs. Dragon Quest being big news when I was a kid.

Nowadays, I just boot up an emulator or something since my NES and Super NES are in storage.  I haven't bought a Nintendo system since the Game Boy Advance though, and I don't care for their gimmicky controllers anymore.  The company that made shoulder buttons viable and I don't even recognize them now.

Does nintendo not have that magic they used to have like they had during there snes and n64 days? Or are there games just like the've always been and maybe i've just outgrown um... anyone else feel like nintendo has disapered compared to the way they used to be?

Nope. Nintendo Wii is the 3rd most succesful console in history (not including handhelds).

The Nintendo DS is the most succesful handheld in history.

Hardcore gamers, and the game industry in general, are just addicted to FPS games such as  Call of Duty which are generally played on Xbox and PS3.

[mod edit]

i suppose this should come to no suprise but when i posted a question on the facebook wall for the game my friend commented on my post about pokemon being a jap made game and why am i playing this stuff when i should be playing stuff like CoD black ops 2 and stuff. this instantly annoyed me because i don't like being critisized about things i enjoy and especially gaming.

my friend is a special kind of stupid lets leave it at that lol maybe i'll tell em if he wants me to play black ops 2 then buy me the game even then i'll probably just play the campaign and then sell it :-P

i'm not into those kind of FPS games i do enjoy borderlands 1 & 2 though lol

and i am a avid RPG whore on my PS3 but not one of those hardcore types.

I really wish Nintendo would go third party. I bought a wii just for Zelda and I will not be doing that again with the wii u. I was tempted to get one but after reading how poor the battery life is on the controller I passed.

The first MMO you loved will always be the best. You will never get that feeling back stop trying.

I thought this was going to be a nostalgia post when I clicked on it. It's not really, but I have decided to proceed as if it was.

Whatever happened to KOEI?  Nobunga's Ambition and Aerobiz, good times.

I have to agree, reluctantly.  It's been quite a while since I purchased a new console, but I know who's on top.  The problem is that after Nintendo finally realized more people would play their games if they adopted a more "adult" stance, they almost immediately went back to kiddy games.  I honestly think they would have won the console wars if not for that.  There are many, many more gamers in their teens and twenties than there are child gamers or families who play games together.

Also, like I mentioned, all the hokey controllers.  Most of the gamers I know like to sit down and game, not swing a virtual sword.

And Playstation?  Meh, they seem to concentrate more on their next system than their current one half the time.

Nintendo isn't forgotten it's remembered fondly.It jsut needs a shift in management as the current old guard is way out of touch with the current market.

However Nintendo I beleive has vast resources in reserve so isn't in any danger of ceasing to exist.It onyl takes one console generation for things to change drastically.
