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.

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

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.

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.
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.

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.

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
