So, there's no third parties developers for Mario and Luigi?

Not like I'd want Mario on any other console, I mean I barely want him on Nintendo consoles.

I'm thinking about licensing out Mario on PlayStation 4? It will sell like hotcakes

Never say never.. Nintendo licensed out several of their key characters including Mario in the early 90's primarily to Philips when they released the CD-I console. There is at least one Mario game and two Zelda games on that console so Nintendo may not be considering it right now but it's not like they've never done it. I also think Sega thought the same about Sonic but things eventually got that bad that it had to happen. I doubt Nintendo will ever be in a Sega type situation but gaming is constantly evolving, so while Nintendo don't see it right now they would be wise to keep it as a potential plan later down the line.

Maybe at first it will but after people get over the excitement of having Mario on a console not made by Nintendo the interest will fade and then you'll eventually go bankrupt.

I like this little let's pretend conversation.

Honestly? I have never been able to see Mario on another console. It just wouldn't feel right for some reason. Mario is good where he is now, and I don't expect that to ever change. If they license Mario out, I hope it'll be for a cameo appearance or something, as I don't want anyone else developing a Mario game. They couldn't get it right. Don't get me wrong - I love Sony developers. But nope.

Slash - I should rephrase haha. I've never been able to see a full, good Mario on another console. I wasn't around for Hotel Mario, but I've heard it was...well, it was. That's about it.

what a cluster*bleep* - nintendo really wasnt in trouble financially and the wii u doesnt have pathetic sales, but because people have made all this such a big deal, theres an image of nintendo is deep shit which is terrible for investors and the like, so nintendo, in an attempt to look proactive and crap, spends the time and energy to make these weird announcements which frankly just added fuel to the fire.

Nintendo is just holding onto its few remaining successful franchises (Zelda and Mario) selling those out to other consoles would screw them over since (lets face it) Nintendo doesn't exactly have other profiting gaming series.
