With the Wii U continue to performing poorly, discussion has been rife on how Nintendo can turn around the fortunes. Personally, I have no ideas left for Nintendo, for now it seems it would be wise to let events unfold naturally.
I was watching the latest Bonus round for GTTV, and a comment made by one of the panelist hit a cord. Nintendo is Disney. By that, the Panelist was suggesting that Nintendo has a cultural reach that no other company share. That their games should be played every single person. The idea is that Nintendo’s games deserve to be played by everyone, and should not be limited to one hardware.
As a Nintendo Fan, I would never want Nintendo leaving the hardware business, but the thought did resonate with me. If Nintendo does decide to bow out of the hardware business (home console), it might not be the end of them, it could be a new adventure for them, perhaps even becoming a stronger company for it.
You can watch the bonus round episode below.
Let me know your thoughts.
