I’m saying that the Switch’s sales, especially compared to the Wii U’s sales should hopefully be a wake up call for Nintendo, especially since third party companies are FINALLY taking Nintendo seriously again.Why should Nintendo care about literally any of that when the Switch has been selling like literal gangbusters since 2017 though?
this but in the sense of. nintendo actually heckinf caring about drift and working to fix it for REAL, instead of offering free repairs in a few select countries only, then apologizing for it and then saying drift "isnt a real problem or has caused anyone any incovenience" later THE SAME YEAR I,m going to FumeAs someone who grew up with Nintendo his whole life, I wish Nintendo would get their heads out of their egotistical asses and think a lot more serious about the industry!
Yes, a wake up call that their strategy of making under powered machines compared to the competition and instead making something the other companies can't or won't replicate (in this case a portable console) is a continued success like it mostly has been since the wii.I’m saying that the Switch’s sales, especially compared to the Wii U’s sales should hopefully be a wake up call for Nintendo, especially since third party companies are FINALLY taking Nintendo seriously again.
taking down fan uploads of music and just never providing any official alternative themselves;
removing glitches that were only of use to like speedrunners and wouldnt harm anyone or benefit anyone in multiplayer modes (smo has a few like this) because they REALLY want people to play how THEY want;
It’s a wake up call because The Wii U bombed, not just because of poor marketing and it’s a stupid name, because the console lacked any real hardware storage and third party support compared to Sony and Microsoft. But as soon as the Switch came out, having more power than the Wii U (Okay maybe not AS much power as the PS4 and Xbox One, but still strong enough to play Skyrim and Doom), and having the best third party support since the SNES, THAT should hit Nintendo in the head and hopefully they’ll think “Hmm…maybe it’s time we take this industry a little more serious.”Yes, a wake up call that their strategy of making under powered machines compared to the competition and instead making something the other companies can't or won't replicate (in this case a portable console) is a continued success like it mostly has been since the wii.
Wait why is this a wake up call again?
And that’s a GOOD thing. What they’re doing with the Switch is GOOD. I’ve said nothing but positive things about what they’re doing with the Switch, minus the terrible use of online Nintendo still has problems with. I’m saying that because of the console’s sales being one of Nintendo’s highest, and the amount of third party support it has compared to the N64, GC, Wii and Wii U, Nintendo will continue to improve.No offense, but you're sounding like the type of person who spent the entirety of the Wii generation complaining about how Nintendo abandoned real gamers and is only making stuff for moms and casuals nowadays.
Edit: Nintendo has found themselves a very successful niche with the Switch and I really don't see any compelling reasons why they should just throw that away and just make a third box that's nigh-identical to what Sony and Microsoft are doing just because some people want them to. Are there definitely things Nintendo can do to improve? Yes, but completely changing the hardware philosophy they've got right now is not one of them.
It’s not just that, but during that time they’ve been treating third party companies poorly and limiting them on the types of games they could make. So once Sony announced that they’re making a system that would not only optimize discs with plenty of free space, but treat all the third party companies with respect. Meanwhile Nintendo verbally told Square to “Fuck off”, killing all possibilities of any great RPG titles they could have released on the N64 that while not have the same amount of power as Final Fantasy VII, could have left just as big of an impact.Nintendo should've used CDs on the Nintendo 64 tbh. I get all their reasons why they chose cartridges over CDs, but at the end of the day, that decision is why the system had a smaller library compared to the PS1 and why games on the N64 were more expensive than PS1 and Saturn games.
No, that was pretty much the main reason. That and a mediocre gimmick.It’s a wake up call because The Wii U bombed, not just because of poor marketing and it’s a stupid name
