Not only that, but we may have never seen the Move or Kinect if it weren't for the over 100 million Wii systems out there.
That would have been great. (:

but it wouldn't feel right to play Mega Man with a keyboard should that become our only option.
Nintendo doesn't own Megaman...
You can use controller with steam and the Genesis collection is multiplatform

Sony doesn't really focus on making games for kids like Nintendo.
Sly,Jak and Daxter, Knack, Little Big Planet,Ratchet and Clank, Puppeteer,etc.
Even Microsoft has IPs that are for "kids" like Viva Pinata, Banjo, Zoo Tycoon, Kinect games,etc.


Oh and unlike Sega, Nintendo isn't going anywhere. =p

He's probably right, I'd miss Nintendo for one.

I have this odd feeling though that Nintendo's decline isn't going to turn around and in a decade or so, they'll fade away and be bought by Apple of MS. The question on everyone's minds however, and one of the biggest stories in gaming history is where would Pokemon go if Nintendo ceases to exist? Imagine Pokemon on PS5.

It really depends on what your talking about when you say "kids", since games like Ratchet and Clank are actually Rated T and a lot of Nintendo's games are basically designed to be appropriate for anyone old enough to hold a controller.

Nintendo designs games for kids with a few to entice or satisfy older player/parents, while Sony and Microsoft basically do the opposite.


I doubt Nintendo is going anywhere either, for one thing they're too financially healthy for that. At worst they'd likely just drop home consoles and exclusively make handhelds. They could probably even go Japan only if they had to.

Phillip Moody, exactly where did you get your information? All the tycoon games, Little Big Planet, all the Lego games, Minecraft...The list could go on and on. Do your research before making an uninformed comment.

I'm no finance expert, but, though Nintendo is probably in more trouble than they're letting on, they aren't going anywhere.

I think that the Nintendo situation is being a bit exaggerated. While there's no doubt that Nintendo will definitely have a few problems, I don't see any major problems happening any time soon.

And that's because Nintendo fails to enter the gamer's market fully. Nintendo isn't in India, a place where people die to play Nintendo games. Nintendo isn't in Latin America either, but I guess that doesn't make much of a difference.

Their basic aim is to make games that are "kid friendly"; a kid can't play Uncharted or Assassins Creed games.

Yea, obviously, not that the rating actually stops anyone. What I'm saying is the term "kid" is vague, even when talking about kid friendly games.

You probably wouldn't give a 6-7 year old a T-rated game despite being aimed at kids too, due to difficulty mostly. On the other hand they could easily pick up and enjoy any Mario game. Nintendo is the only one of the three to primarily focus being that accessible.

They do a better job at making kid/family friendly games than Nintendo does making mature games though.

Mind you, the Nintendo 64 was home to (Conker Bad Fur Day) an M-rated game created by Rare with explicit sexual references, gore and extreme violence. The game was a master piece.

A SUBTLE HINT THAT SONY AND NINTENDO ARE MERGING. (Metroid Prime on the PS4? One can dream.)

When people say they don't think Nintendo are doing as bad as people think, then what about their projected figures? They went from a fairly big profit, to a pretty big loss. I'm no expect on financial figures, but it looks like they will be in trouble if they don't do a significant turn around in terms of sales... which isn't looking that likely.
