It appears Nintendo has finally awakened and is now setting plans in motion. As someone has pointed out to me – Nintendo of America is on a hiring spree  – looking for quality individuals to fill numerous job positions.

If you look at the recent activity on Nintendo of America’s Jobs Classification page and the Nintendo of America Jobs Twitter account – the Big N has posted a wild amount of  Job vacancies.

In the past 24 hours – NOA has posted up a total of 37 vacancies. In February alone – 63 positions have opened up (around that; counting while scrolling can be disorientating). Some roles include Software Support Engineer, IT Architect, Business Analyst, eShop Merchant and Programmer. Of course, it would be wise to look at Nintendo’s activity in the months before -in order to rule out the possibility that this behavior is normal.

noa twitter

 

Going by the Twitter account – prior to February 2014 – the last posting was made on October 2013. For that month only 2 vacancies were posted. Furthermore, the months before October 2013 – none have reached the extraordinary number of 63 – in fact no months were even close. Unfortunately, I could not get a sample from February 2013. But, I think it is safe to assume that this behavior is not typical.

So what could this mean? I did some research, but I could not find anything on “job cuts” or “mass exodus” of employees from Nintendo of America. So these Job Vacancies cannot be a reaction to replace leaving employees. My gut feeling tells me that Nintendo is expanding in preparation of the “Quality of Life” business model. Furthermore, I do believe Iwata is giving Nintendo of America more tools to improve their business in the American Market. Nevertheless, it is about time Nintendo expands – clearly they are having trouble supporting two consoles simultaneously and I hope something massive is brewing in the background.

    Expansion!? They need to downsize from their hardware making and focus on software development as a 3rd party.

    • Gregory Edcius

      you can’t take it Ninteno is showing no signs developing for your precious Ps4 what’s the matter ? are the games they provide you not to your liking ? you’d rather play Nintendo games ?
      Typical Sony fanboy…….

      • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

        Tired of what’s knocking on the door? Does it bother you that I say that?

        It’s gonna happen eventually whether you like it or not. Might not be a 100% transition.

        • rafael

          Why dont u use your time machine to help humanity or something? Or maybe just use your knowledge of the future of the market to become rich…people never learn :p

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            Business is business. If you think Nintendo will stay “Nintendo” that’s just plain ignorant.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            It’s a marathon, not a sprint. You’re beyond plain ignorant. I don’t expect you to understand that though until this console gen ends-a shame it’ll take you that long to realize the truth was staring you in the face the whole time. And don’t start the butt hurt “I’m a Nintendo fan boy” accusations because of my username as I own all the consoles. Good day.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            Cool don’t try to put your anger on me who only bought the winning system.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            Aren’t you proud of yourself fan boy? So subsequently ignorant. Go back to N4G and whine all you want about it there. Nobody cares what you think.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            Cared enough to comment

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            No not really but nice try trollface. I see that you’re uneducated in these matters so I wanted to give you a broader understanding of what’s really going on, but since you’re playing Mr. Know it All over here forget oh wise one. How could Sony ever do wrong by you right? It’s so funny how your arrogance, your greatest strength, is also the source of your greatest weakness. I’ll let you ponder on what that means before I reply and blow your mind again. Ironic how it’s the winning system yet Sony is the company with the highest probability of bankruptcy, did you know that? Didn’t think so. Next time make your comment intelligent as this is the last time I will try to help your case or we’re done.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            I smarter than all of you here lol . Higher profit margin doesn’t mean everything. Look at the other messages. I educated MiiGamerz.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            Improper grammar, not every smart of you. in this case, it means unless Sony does keep PS4’s momentum going, no investor is gonna waste their time with them as every other division they have is nailing their coffins compared to the position their Computer Entertainment division is in. I bet you did-he just followed along to give you the illusion of being smart. What a shame.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            Oh I just play PS4. I’m on the iPhone you grammar nazi. But anyway I play PS4 and not other Sony products. All I know is I’m getting a pipeline of new games to play.

            You Nintendo fans like to spin financial health but what has that got to do with the home console? Wii1 and WiiU are garbage in terms of software.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            you already made that obvious genius. and ok, chill bro. so you’ve never played PS3? you missed out on lotta games man. that pipeline is gonna take time like every other company. let me be blunt: no money, no consoles to make, no games to sell. get the picture? good. by garbage, if you mean quantity, then yeah, there could’ve been more games but each one sold aplenty to make up for it. quality over quantity-oldest trick in the book, did you know that? I thought not. Wii U may not reach as many numbers as Wii, but it won’t be a failure like Dreamcast, that’s a fact, even if you refuse to accept it.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            I have a PS3. Last gen I had all 3 but this gen is a 1 console generation like the PS2 was.

            No money or consoles to make?? Sony’s business model has always been invest first make back it later. You trying to say PS3 didn’t have many systems or games??

            Finally we agree on your last 3rd of your comment. Dreamcast, no. But GameCube numbers will be a challenge at this point.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            Oh ok. So did I, and I plan to have all 3 again within the next few years. I mean without the money, Nintendo can’t do anything, they invest just like Sony does. No I’m not saying PS3 didn’t sell well on hardware or software at all-don’t take it out of context. It had obviously had quality games or else it wouldn’t have taken Sony this far. Good to see we have reached an understanding. If the right games are released, Nintendo will manage. with the sparsity of games available from them during the next few months it will be a challenge but if they make better marketing and business decisions this year, that will change everything, and improve their situation. they’re already close to 6 million units, even if it’s been over a year, so I think that within a few years time they will approach GameCube numbers but may not surpass them by much if, again, the right games aren’t released at the right time.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            I’m suprised a Nintendo fan here I actually agree with 80% of what he says. The bit I can’t agree with is the games. Sure it will help but right Nintendo’s problem isn’t just games. It’s mind-share, community, brand-name, online, PR etc. Sure they have COD and Assasins Creed.. but the difference the majority of the millions of gamers aren’t playing it on the WiiU. Whether it be online, graphics, community or they just weren’t informed that that was even on WiiU.

            Sure Bayonetta will help.., but how much? Not that much. And the old roster of Nintendo games that come out will help too, but how did that roster help the N64 and Gamecube? They each sold 30ish mil and 20ish mil respectively. The limit I give WiiU is 25 mil max.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            I’m also a Sony fan and much less a Microsoft fan (more of a Halo fan). Just because I’m a Nintendo fan doesn’t mean I’m not a fan of anyone else. A user once told me if you’re a Nintendo fan, then you’re naturally a fan of Sony. Forget his name, but I never forgot that, and I believed him, and still do. I actually do agree the PR could’ve been given more effort. the brand name shouldn’t be a factor in the confusion-but due to the marketing it has come to that. Nintendo from time to time actually goes on MiiVerse to chat with users so I wouldn’t so community is the biggest factor affecting them nor mind share as they frequently interact with them. I unfortunately haven’t played any online games yet on the system so all I can say is that the eShop could be more organized, and that they find a replacement for Friend Codes. It’s really the media I think giving users the perception that Wii U is severely lacking when really it packs quite a punch, though no console is perfect. It will still help, especially since it’s a hardcore game, and users who played the original on 360 and PS3 will have a reason to get Bayonetta 2 and Wii U since it will be exclusive to it. Surely we can expect many users will own at least two systems at a time, which may include Wii U, given also that Wii U is the cheapest of the three. For N64 and GameCube, it was really the media formats they chose that drove away devs, not that Nintendo wasn’t prepared for anything else. I bet you Wii U will sell at least 40 million in its entire lifetime, and by the time the next Zelda releases and everyone who wants it picks it up, we can expect a surge up to 25-30 million at that point. Zelda is always a big seller, and Japan actually wants Mario Kart 8 very badly. Famitsu did a survey found it to be #2 most wanted game behind Persona 5 and ahead of FF XV and KH III so I say Mario Kart 8 will be the true start of the momentum they need, like how Uncharted 2 started spurring sales for PS3 and brought Sony back into the limelight.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            also, speaking of PS4, I guess that means you’ll be picking up Batman:Arkham Knight? I played it on 360 and am comfortable with that control scheme so I’ll most likely be getting that on Xbox One when I eventually get that system, as I want PS4 before getting that.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            Nintendo brand is really specific to the eyes of gamers. They look to buy it almost entirely just for the 1st party games. But that is already losing appeal dating all the way back to NES. Each successor except we sold less. 60 40 30 20 100 ?.

            Bayonetta is my favorite actions game. More than DMC, Darksiders, God of war, and Ninja Gaiden. Now it’s not enough to sell me on the system. As for those games coming out like Zelda and MK8.. Just wait and see. I’m not as optimistic about them as you are.

            New Arkam game, ehhh I respect the series for what it is but for me personally the game isn’t for me. And I like how they only made it for the X1, PS4, and PC. I will give it a try but probably not buy it full price right away.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            yeah, that’s what I’ve always done really. Perhaps Wii U will be the middle ground. It will sell more than the lowest selling systems but won’t come close to the highest ones of Nintendo. Bayonetta is one of my favorite-dunno if it’s my ultimate though since I haven’t played every action game there is per se. Yeah, I know. MGS4 changed everything for Sony and they owe a debt to it for starting that momentum for PS3. Yeah, I prefer PS over Xbox-which I didn’t conclude until I got a PS3 Super Slim with MGS4 after having a 360 Slim for a year before that. I think the new Arkham game will be worth your time, even if it’s not your cup of tea. 2014 will surely be an interesting year.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            I found the Batman games to be slow and kind of a chore to play. If they harness the power of the current gen, then the game should pick up the pace a bit and more smooth in its transitions. Witcher 3, Destiny, The Division, and Deep Down are more on my must-buy list. And then down the road Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy IV. I’m not sure about the new MGS.

            I compare Bayonetta to all the action games. It’s just pretty much better in all facets. From story, fighting system, controls, enemies, bosses, length.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            Slow and a chore? WHAT!? You’re the first person I’ve talked that’s played and not be as impressed by the games. You didn’t like gliding around and using the zipline and gadgets and fighting system? The pace will definitely pick up, especially since we’ll be able to use the Batmobile now. Yeah, those games I also want, though I’m actually the least excited for Destiny for some reason, and Deep Down I’m still holding judgement. I really want Watch Dogs though and Lords of The Fallen, and many other games and I can’t remember right now. Witcher 3 though would have to be the one I want that most outta those games-ever since I saw it in Gameinformer, I’ve wanted it, even before seeing the reveal at E3. I personally am much more excited for Kingdom Hearts III than Final Fantasy XV honestly, though there’s no doubt both will be good, and some characters from FF XV just might cross into KH III if we’re lucky. And KH III is my most anticipated game that I want for PS4 btw. I’m also skeptical of MGS V: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain. Kiefer Sutherland being the new voice really pisses me off and things such as no normal codec like in the past and regen health is just bizarre. In that case, if I had to choose one action game I can’t live without it would be Bayonetta, as no game or character, especially a female one, has ever left a huge impression on me like it had when I first played, with series such as MGS and KH coming very close or on par. I really hope Bayonetta 2 raises the bar though.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            I’m not a fan of any superhero. So the appeal of using those gadgets wasn’t there for me. I only played the beginning parts of Arkam 1 and 2. I couldn’t make myself come back to finish them through. I don’t own many games and I sell them back.

            Yea I understand with Destiny. Graphics look pretty unwhelming but knowing it’s Bungie they’re gonna make a strong online community, online world, and make it intersting with its match types. It’s one those online games where you gotta get it day 1 or else you I feel like i won’t be able to compete against the better players.

            I’m starting to get more hyped with Infamous than Watch Dogs. Watch Dogs has lost steam since being revealed the 2 E3s ago. My favorite was MGS3 and MGS4 was kind of a letdown for me. Part of the appeal of Snake for me was the arcade like style of game. When Snaked turn into more CODish and more realistic it took away some of the fun. That’s why MGS5, I’m not that hyped for it other than being able to be stealthy even on “horseback”.

            KH and FF have been in development for so long. They have no other choice to be good. Last Guardian, as well, that game has to be good. And then there’s the sports genre which I get the feeling you probably don’t play much sports games. NBA 2K and Madden, yea they have disappointing me lately but just like COD those games are nice to play around for a couple months every year. It’s like fast food for me. It’s not good for your wallet, it’s not good for the gaming industry, but it’s fun to a certain extent and you know what you are getting.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            I getcha. I thought Destiny would be more focused on the story like Halo but felt let down finding it be more online focused, but will still look out for it. Yeah, atm, Infamous: SS is a hot topic. Really hope Watch Dogs isn’t canned or total garbage on release. My favorites are MGS3 and MGS4-it’s a tie for me really. yeah the horseback isn’t really a big reason for me to get it but I’ll play it anyway for sake of it being MGS. Indeed. Last Guardian is also a big title I want, and also The Order: 1886. you’re right about the sports-my parents never really got me those games so I never really got into playing sports video games but do enjoy playing the actual sports in real life like basketball, baseball, soccer, etc. I was actually looking forward to Ghosts hoping it would be better than BO2 but never got around to it. Now, hearing leaks of the next COD that Sledgehammer games is working on, I hope that isn’t trash though I won’t be surprised if it shows decline since people have been saying for so long no COD is starting to wane, and it’s showing. interesting analogy. tbh I personally haven’t done much fast food lately so I dig your perspective on that. more diversity and versatility in style of game would serve the industry well. it’s almost like Mario and Zelda-surely they share similarities across each entry but you already know enough of past titles will exist in future titles so that while appreciating the nostalgia of old you can get into the new and still feel you’re playing the same game but from a new perspective that freshens the experiences but never lets you forget the roots and origins of where it all started and made you play in the first place.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            Shockingly I’d give a lot more credit to Mario and Zelda than COD. COD comes out every year while Mario and Zelda is halfway like Final Fantasy. New game with the same name but the games are really different with some familiarity with the characters and such. While in COD all you do is shoot, cover, and heal. COD4 however is personally my top two games of last gen. COD4 and Uncharted 2. However every COD after that is largely just a rehash.

            Ghosts was fun. It’s what you expect. Get to first prestige, unlock new weapons, snipe, camp, killstreaks etc. If Sledgehammer makes only for X1, PS4, and PC then color me as excited because then they can focus on hardnessing the power. It’s fun for a couple months and then it gets old. I forgot about the Order. I gotta see more of it though. I’m not a huge fan of the setting of that game. The steam-punk cival war time period.. Ehhh It’s going to be atleast a good game no doubt.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            Yeah I suppose when you look at it that way it makes sense. Although my favorite COD is actually BO, my favorite moment of the entire series thus far, is the level All Ghillied Up, in COD 4, where you’re young Captain Price and using stealth to go through the level from start to finish. that really stood out to me, and I wouldn’t mind playing that level again. My favorite last gen games are MGS4, Skyward Sword, Halo 4, Halo 3, Bayonetta, Uncharted 2, Killzone 2, Infamous, Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, Wii Sports, Assassin’s Creed II, and The Last of Us. There are some last gen games I still haven’t played though. yeah after COD 4, it started digging its own grave inch by inch. alright, I suppose I’ll enjoy it then. hate to break to you but I’m very sure they’ve already confirmed support also for last gen, but next gen will be the lead platforms this time around so you should be safe. Yeah, for the Order, so far I don’t like the QTE-esque parts of the game that were shown-reminds me of Beyond:Two Souls. I think E3 will answer everyone’s questions. and hopefully answer mine on the next Halo, and the one that will be released later this year on Xbox One.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            I’m suprised how you put a lot stock behind halo but not as excited for Destiny. As for me I didn’t like halo as I came from the SOCOM and Resistance Fall of Man camp. I still stand by Halo 3, GTA4, and Crackdown have some of the worst graphics from last gen. I had Halo 3 and Reach and just didn’t like pace of that game either. It’s like Batman just wasn’t for me and Halo wasn’t for me.

            I give U2 and COD4 as tied for the best because they were influential to almost every game after that was made. The Last of Us would be in the conversation had it came out earlier. After I finished play TLoU i thought it would be in the conversation but after the hype settled I still have to give it to U2.

            Just for conversation, my top 10 of last gen:
            1.COD4- most influential
            2. Uncharted 2- 2nd most influential
            3. Bioshock- real immersive in the early gen
            4. Gears 1- graphics, almost made the PS3 an after thought
            5. The Last of Us- the full package to mark the end of the generation
            6.Bayonetta- best action game
            7. Mass Effect 1- best western rpg
            8. NBA 2k11- my personal favorite because i spent the most hours on this game playing “Team Up”
            9. Mario galaxy- best platformer
            10. Mirrors Edge- another personal favorite. Graphics and Parkoring was just really fun.

            I take into consideration of life-to-date. Like Skyrim is obviously better than Mass Effect but if you take into consideration when Mass Effect came out it was much more transcending.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            I never got to play SOCOM or the Resistance trilogy. I say Halo 4, The Last of Us, Bayonetta, MGS4, Skyward Sword, Assassin’s Creed II, Uncharted 2/Killzone 2, BioShock Infinite, and Tomb Raider reboot-in that order. I never actually got to play Mirror’s Edge-just a demo. yeah, the quality changes with the times. I didn’t like Skyrim, nor am I interested in Elder Scrolls in general. I rather check out something like Fallout 3. And I played Mass Effect 2 and 3 but they just didn’t click with me when I played them-I dunno. Also, other games I want are Wolfenstein:The New Order and The Evil Within.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            I’m about to start Tomb Raider on PS3. Free on plus today!

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            Yeah, I’ve already played it on my 360 so if I’m not able to renew my PS+ by next month, it’ll be all good since I already played it. You’re in for a treat, man! just so you know ahead of time, the game will get really intense at some points so good luck. otherwise the game is fun and the story holds its own. the gameplay will be for you to judge, but I liked it. I hope I can get PS4 or Xbox One and get the Definitive Edition.

          • WiiUPS4

            I own a franchise myself. I sell ice cream. But no free ice cream for you Nintendo idiots because I don’t feed stupidity.

            And if people were to compare comments you would be exposed outside of this Nintendo site. You just don’t have self-realization.

          • WiiUPS4

            Nah not really. What i do for a living is way past you kid and i make more than you make in your small life time.
            Let me ask you something Why are you so butthurt?

        • Conley Brown

          You’re a moron. People have been saying what you’re saying since the N64 and they just look more stupid each time they say it.

          • WiiUPS4

            Mike is a idiot Plain and simple and only wishes nintendo would fail..Mikes a epic fail

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            haha you’re the one who is bringing up the war and stooping to that level based on your comments. You’re just mad that Nintendo lost there first place crown just this past week.

            And you’re right about that I don’t really want Nintendo games. I just want to see them falter. However when they do make Nintendo games for 3rd party I sure will play them then.

          • Gregory Edcius

            Officially the biggest moron in the universe if your avatar didn’t already said that

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            lol because your system of choice is faltering, am I right?

          • miigamerz

            If you are going to act asinine and ignorant. I might as wll put you in your place. These are facts, your company of choice is faltering. 1.1 billion in annual loss, 18 billions in debt, junk status credit rating,job cuts, selling buildings and selling divisions. Sure the PS4 is selling well, but that means diddly shit, if they Sony is still in a downward spiral of financial ruin.

            Other hand Nintendo is doing the opposite – hiring more staff, building more buildings, adding a new division, has a healthy handheld business. And best of all they are swimming in pools of cash, assets and debt free.

            It’s not Nintendo fans fault that you live in a delusional world where Sony is fine dandy; and that somehow Nintendo and Microsoft are worst off.

            Nice try but Nintendo wouldn’t be able to handle the financial burden. Sony has more assets, so therefore they have more investing power.

            Also it’s not really relevant to the health of the PS4. Sony has been in this situation for decades. And while Nintendo is in the black their net income ain’t that high. If they had more financial power wouldn’t you think they would make a stronger system?? Anyway nice try to spin something not relevant. I’ve been at this for 7 years. Don’t try to debate about this stuff with me.

          • miigamerz

            the red herring is hilarious. Let’s ignore facts shall we and pretend sony is in good shape. Cutting jobs, selling assets, several years in consecutive losses, 18 billion dollars in debt, and junk status in credit rating – yep these are all signs of a company that is in good shape.

            Oh let’s ignore the fact that nintendo is now valued bigger than sony.

            http://metro.co.uk/2014/01/08/nintendo-valued-as-bigger-company-than-sony-4254425/

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            Yep lets do. So if there is such high regard about financial status for companies then how come Nintendo went with weaker hardware again and they aren’t using there money to secure more 3rd party exclusives. Also where are ads? I thought they are more financially sound to use more ads. In other words with Nintendo so healthy financially, what does that do in return for gamers outside of the 3DS. Irrelevant, care to talk about games? Congrats I didn’t know you worked for Nintendo.

            Oh no you got all butthurt..Goodbye kid you are defeated and now find a rope and use it ..By the way you must be queer ..You look it

          • WiiUPS4

            Nice try at trolling ..Retire retard and stop being in denial

          • miigamerz

            nothing you have said is remotely relevant to a companies financial health. Dude did you even finish kindergarten? Because your argument are nothing but strawmens. It doesn’t take a genius to know that sony is in shitters – not my fault you are in denial

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            Fine is this relevant enough to you?? Why doesn’t Nintendo sell the system at a loss and make a stronger system that plays current gen games? Why don’t they invest into more 3rd party exclusives? Why don’t they invest more in there online infrastructure? Why hasn’t Microsoft dominated with all there money? Where are your benefits as a WiiU gamer if Nintendo is making so much money?

            There’s a reason why it’s seperate divsions. Microsoft Game Studios, Sony Computer Entertainment, and Nintendo.

            Your site is lame. It’s just a pro Nintendo site with no realists. Be fans why don’t you. I don’t hang on Sony only sites. All you Nintendo fans here are just fed BS and you buy it lol

          • miigamerz

            Unlike you, I won’t simply avoid the argument and provide red herrings

            “Why doesn’t Nintendo sell the system at a loss and make a stronger system that plays current gen games?”

            The Wii U is sold at a lost!

            http://au.ign.com/articles/2012/10/24/nintendo-will-sell-wii-u-at-a-loss

            Why are you not presenting any facts? Just because Nintendo doesn’t follow the same strategy as Sony doesn’t mean they are worst off then them. Unlike you I don’t change the subject.

            “Why don’t they invest into more 3rd party exclusives?”

            Sonic Lost Worlds, Bayonetta 2, Lego City Undercover, Sonic Boom, Hyrule Warriors, Shin Megami X Fire Emblem, The Last story, Professor Layton. They published Ninja Gaiden 3

            Why don’t they invest more in there online infrastructure?
            They have unified accounts, a proper online store, the fantastic Miiverse, online is completely fine and free.

            Now that I have your qustion, now answer mine, the ones you refuse to touch.

            Why does sony refuse to reveal the official shipment numbers of the PS Vita? Why has Santa Monica layed off Employees? Why is sony selling divisions? Why are Sony beginning to sell buildings? Why do they have a junk status credit rating? Why do they have $18 billion dollars in debt? Why did they lose 1.1 billions dollars during the fiscal year?

            Why is Nintendo hiring more staff? Why is nintendo building more headquarters? Why is nintendo investing in a new division? Why do they have billions in the bank? Why are they debt free? Why are they valued more the Sony? Why is the 3DS dominating the Ps Vita?

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            Okay if you want to talk about big red fish, then what does that have to do with gaming. I give props to 3DS. That’s not a debate here cause I agree. But as for PS4 those aren’t indicators for how healthy it’s gonna be. Why should I provide facts when you aren’t reading them to begin with.

            Fact.. Santa Monica Studios, as I said before was like how The Agency, The Getaway, and 8 days got canceled. If you google “canceled PS3 games” or something like that you will get a list of around 60 canceled PS3 games. This is nothing new and all 3 companies do this. You just happen to hear about this one and we just happen to see Nintendo invest more in property. And I just happned to know that Sony about a month before aquired one of Nintendo’s old buildings I think.

            Online, the WiiU online pales to attract customers. The root of cause is the defining online gaming experiences pale in comparison. Who is really buying COD and Madden playing them online on it. You can look at sales yourself. I’m not wasting my time on a pro-Nintendo site providing links.

            Games, once again pales in comparison. You were talking big about Nintendo’s money but they only provide a fraction 3rd party games. I love Bayonetta, that’s my favorite action game last generation. That’s not enough. The other games don’t stand out. As for Ninja Gaiden, the Ninja Gaiden fans like myself played that on last gen systems. And you can look at vgchartz for sales for all those games. You Nintendo fans need to start buying them games.

            Wii U sold at a lost, I meant it should be strong enough to play multiplatform games made for PS4 and X1. Now granted, there are some games coming out as 3rd party but it’s missing the online community and some of the big games.

          • miigamerz

            “Okay if you want to talk about big red fish, then what does that have to do with gaming.”

            Lmfao…. Did you not finish university? I’ll let you google “red herrings'”. Hopefully, you will understand the basic concepts.

            It’s funny that you refuse to answer my questions. You made a statement that should downsize and become 3rd party. I provided you with a solid argument; that such notion is ridiculous and use Sony as a point of comparison as to how Nintendo is in better health.

            You keep going back to an abritrary console war argument – that the PS4 is currently number one next gen and constantly rambling about nintendo’s shortcoming. I’ll ask you a question. So what? In the grander schemes of things being number one means jack shit- if it does not make enough money to keep the company a float or pay the bills.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            No, you didn’t understand my response to your figure of speech. Your past comment is talking about finance in which I lazily said “you keep talking about big red fish” to make fun of your overuse of that figure of speech. You keep bringing up financial status of both companies, but in all technicality that is actually a red herring because you are diverting your attention from the main point. What does that have to do with gaming!? SCE is successful!

            Yes being is #1 is what it’s cracked up to be. If it wasn’t then how come it’s always been the touted #1 idicator of console wars. Install base is everything because that in general means higher software sales which attract more developers to make more games for that system. The only exception to that rule is the Wii1. In which the Wii1 didn’t provide enough great games in proportion to its large install base.

            And they shall go 3rd party. That would support you argument because there profit margin would go up and net income would go up. Afterall since all you care about BASED ON YOUR COMMENTS is care about money. I don’t work for Sony. All I do is play the games on the #1 system.

          • miigamerz

            “Your past comment is talking about finance in which I lazily said “you keep talking about big red fish” to make fun of your overuse of that figure of speech.”

            Sure man – I’ve used the term “red herring” many times against you and your responses suggest you had no idea what it meant and still do not what it means now. At least you can learn something today.

            “You keep bringing up financial status of both companies, but in all technicality that is actually a red herring because you are diverting your attention from the main point. What does that have to do with gaming!? SCE is successful!”

            You are doing it again – your original comment was that nintendo should downsize and become third party:

            “Expansion!? They need to downsize from their hardware making and focus on software development as a 3rd party.”

            I brought up the counter argument that Nintendo is in healthier than sony – therefore your statement was asinine and ignorant.

            “If you are going to act asinine and ignorant. I might as wll put you in your place. These are facts, your company of choice is faltering. 1.1 billion in annual loss, 18 billions in debt, junk status credit rating,job cuts, selling buildings and selling divisions. Sure the PS4 is selling well, but that means diddly shit, if they Sony is still in a downward spiral of financial ruin.

            Other hand Nintendo is doing the opposite – hiring more staff, building more buildings, adding a new division, has a healthy handheld business. And best of all they are swimming in pools of cash, assets and debt free.”

            You insisted on writing red herrings – arguing arbitrarily about Nintendo not investing in 3rd party,:online, yadda, yadda, SCE is succesful etc which is not the argument here. What does that have to do with Nintendo downsizing and becoming 3rd party? Where is your evidence and logical reason – Why they should downsize?

            Stick to the argument at hand! Come on man! This stuff are taught during high school and university.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            Sigh.. Your a waste of my time. I’m pretty sure your the one who misused the classic way of the figure of speech. You’re the one who should go to wiki and review as I did and I confirmed that I was correct.

            And you misused it with this comment: “the red herring is hilarious. Let’s ignore facts shall we and pretend
            sony is in good shape. Cutting jobs, selling assets, several years in
            consecutive losses, 18 billion dollars in debt, and junk status in
            credit rating – yep these are all signs of a company that is in good
            shape

            “The idiom “red herring” is used to refer to something that misleads or distracts from the relevant or important issue.”
            ———-from Wiki

            Gaming is the real issue not financial status of the companies especially if we’re are talking about the games division. Microsoft and Sony have both been in debt but in no coincidence they provide the most exclusives and 3rd party exclusives. So you’re the one who made an elementary mistake unless you were referring my orginal comment was a red herring in which it is not because it is valid.

            Valid as in how? Because out of the 3 console holders Nintendo likes big profit margins. They sold every system at equal cost or at a profit at launch. I understand Wii U was sold at a lost but I didn’t look at your link to see how much. I figure it’s not that much because the system is only as strong a overcharged PS3. And most of the cost incurred is in the controller itself which hasn’t been utilized that well to gamers’ popular demand.

            “You keep bringing up financial status of both companies, but in all
            technicality that is actually a red herring because you are diverting
            your attention from the main point. What does that have to do with
            gaming!? SCE is successful!”

            You are doing it again – your original comment was that nintendo should downsize and become third party:

            — Right, but my comment has a lot to do with gaming. The financial health about cutting jobs, losing buildings etc. does not. As I said above Microsoft and Sony have been do this for a while and providing games in-spite of what you claim to be bad financial health.

            “Other hand Nintendo is doing the opposite – hiring more staff, building
            more buildings, adding a new division, has a healthy handheld business.
            And best of all they are swimming in pools of cash, assets and debt
            free.”

            —What has that benefitted to you as a gamer? And back to my orginal comment to tie this together, Nintendo likes high profit margins otherwise what else have they been doing with that money. GB, GBA, DS, and 3DS made SO MUCH MONEY, but what has that got to do with making great software and hardware for the home consoles??

            “You insisted on writing red herrings – arguing arbitrarily about
            Nintendo not investing in 3rd party,:online, yadda, yadda, SCE is
            succesful etc which is not the argument here. What does that have to do
            with Nintendo downsizing and becoming 3rd party? Where is your evidence
            and logical reason – Why they should downsize?”

            There’s certainly a lot of pressure. That would be bad business to totally just ignore. If you’re gonna deny that Nintendo hasn’t thought about going 3rd party even at a small scale, then you’re delusional and that’s why you hangout at a pro Nintendo site. Whether you like it or not Nintendo will sell there property in some sort of scale in the next few years.

          • miigamerz

            Why don’t you stick with the topic “Nintendo should donwnsize and become 3rd part”? – was this not your original comment? Not my fault you have poor skills in intellectual debates.

          • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

            This site is lame. I was commenting with a bunch other lame gamers on this site. The way this commenting system is constructed it’s hard to organize. I think I made about 30 comments alone. So sheesh.. forgive me that I went on a tangent.

            Someone else was talking about queers, owning a business himself, and body odor.

            You’re at least someone smarter than those others here who talk like kids. But you’re handful too because all you do is get fed up with NIntendo BS and you believe it.

            So I will just let the future unfold and when the news item breaks, then I will say “Told ya so”. And it will probably not break on this Nintendo website, but hopefully in a Disqus format so I can rub it in to all your faces. It’s gonna happen.

          • miigamerz

            I forgive you – besides I am not going to hold a grudge over some arbitrary argument. I just did not like your tone and demeanor on the comment section. And no – I am not some crazy nintendo fanboy.

    Too little too late I’m afraid. They really have to get tons of 3rd party support for the wiiU to flourish as well as more then 2-3 first party releases a year. The wiiU needs games, a lot of games, not the slow trickle it’s had since release.
