    Not “Really Fixated on Our Consoles” - Focus To SWITCH to Mobile Generating Revenue Streams!
    20-Million-Switch-Sales-Target.jpg

    We all knew this 'dark day' would be coming, since Iwata sadly passed away, whenever there is change of the 'top brass' of a major gaming company, the focus changes, the same thing occurred with Sega and Dreamcast, with Nintendo it just took a while longer, plus they had to get the Switch out, but even tho its now close to reaching their 20 Million Sales Target, it might be their Last Console Ever.
    You can read thru the full recent interview on Japanese News Outlet 'Nikkei', afterwards we love to here your thoughts, comments, rants about the new focus big 'N' is sadly aiming towards! :(

    He's seemingly moreso saying that the company could pivot to mobile if the market ever puts Nintendo in a situation where the company won't survive with its consoles, rather than it being a a path they'd want to go down. This piece reads far more dramatically than it should.

    It seems like they won't survive cause they keep making intentionally lower budget low consumer cost consoles compared to ps4 or xbox. They mostly rely on innovation of games than overpowered specs. Honestly I don't want them to stop making home consoles. But I do like portables. Switch is a good compromise that I hope they keep for a long time. :ninja:

    smh some nice clickbait here.

    Basically, they will change as the market does. Like any other company that cares to stay relevant.

    As long as they keep making portable handhelds i would not worry. That's what they can do best and should continue to do. It's understandable they want to abandon the console market after the recent Wii U failure. There is just too much competition + the reputation as company for kids consoles/games. I just hope they won't go fully mobile market. That will be the day Nintendo is dead for me.

    This shouldn't even be news, honestly. "We are willing to survive as a company" is all I see.

    I remember I said this ('tendo going mobile) about two years ago on a random thread, needless to say (but will done), there was a bro-dude who thought he was in the right and I was wrong. lel.

    The next revelation: it'll happen after the next cycle.

    Ninty, mobile market is shit. The switch is the next step to take obviously. Focus on improving what the switch does already: portability, availability and exclusivity.

    mobile devices are just as vulnerable if no more so, has nintendo made any home console or portable console that hasn't been hacked? if anything i would say the home consoles faired up better in that regard

    Not even just that, there's more money in the mobile market.

    I bet Nintendo wont stop making consoles. They're probably just putting this out in order to put xbox and sony at ease while they work on their next consoles so they can catch them off guard with the next new revolutionary way to play super mario. I want a usable, playable hat designed peripheral. What does absolutely ever single gamer let alone person have in this world? A person may not have arms, legs, even entire torsos may be missing but everyone has a head. I think the next logical move for Nintendo is to take advantage of this statistic and make a gaming hat peripheral
