    Nintendo's NES has been performing poorly for the past several years, racking in consistently zero sales in both software and hardware. With no new game releases, some are thinking Nintendo just gave up on the console. Because Nintendo is fucking terrible.

    While the NES originally had a strong start in its first few years, it dwindled quickly, selling consistently no units for the past several years.

    These are indeed dark times for Nintendo, their very future is but hanging by a thread, and we the users, must rally together and put a stop to such madness. I propose that we write a letter to Nintendo of Japan, asking them to initiate the manufacture of Famicom/NES consoles which will in turn, help with sales. Sure, it will be messy financially for a little while, but this should help.

    I blame this silly remote control device. Controls are meant to be part of the console, all this new design does is make your hands tired after ten minutes of playing.

    Also, lol "cartridges". Like this thing will ever have more than two or three games, they should have just built them in.

    Oh yeah? Show the NES against its real competition! The NeoGeo has sold nothing either, so they're still tied.
    You're just some n00b nintendo hater guild

    I blame the lack of backwards compatibility.

    Pssh, nobody cares about the older games. What pisses me off is that NeoGeo has no forwards compatibility. I mean come on, think about the future you morons!
    Sega is doin' it right with the master system

    Bullshit Nintendo released no new games for the console- we had a new one less than a year ago


    You are so biased Guild, I give serious thought to leaving this website for enough time to shower and eat breakfast
    all the time because of it.

    You can't prove that nobody cares about older games, everyone wants BC, you're just rejecting my evidence because you don't like it.
    Who cares about being able to support upcoming titles, everyone wants older games.

    You are just ignoring all the evidence I posted because you're an irrational idiot who can't read.

    Yeah it was a calculated gamble- indeed I switched away from the nice dark theme to eyeburner for it.

    I conducted a poll and 100% of the people polled (i.e., me) want BC, it might be overestimating the actual interest but it might also be underestimating it, you don't know and can't prove it.

    Also I initially meant the NES with the lack of BC quip but what the hey.
