Was the launch titles really the only issue.. makes me wonder.
But, yes. It would have been a better start at least.
He does realize that the launch of the eShop, Ocarina of Time, and Star Fox didn't significantly improve sales? They were still neck-in-neck with the PSP in Japan, the only significant system seller since launch was when they put it out in a new color.
If Nintendo thinks that only first party games will carry their system then that's the big problem. Maybe it will, but people more and more will realize how their systems are becoming a no-man's land for third parties. And I don't want a machine that only plays Nintendo games.
Pretty much, a lot of the 3DS faltering can be faulted on Nintendo trying to give room to third parties.
I find that with Nintendo's state, first parties won't exactly 'save' the 3DS, alone.
More like with the 3DS' state, Nintendo's doing just fine, it's their crap advertisement and naming that got them in this funk to begin with and then the lineup and price that stuck them further down into it.
But what can they do? There are millions of 3DS's out there already and it's not like Nintendo is the only company that's pulled a million seller on the console. Nintendo gave those third party developers a massive two month window to release their games. The 3DS "failed" because the third party developers didn't support the console and now they're all either cancelling their games or delaying them because the console isn't doing well enough? So now Nintendo has to step in and make their console more popular with these admittedly drastic measures, all just so third party developers can ride on in and cash in on Nintendo's effort?
Personally, I prefer great and solid games rather than glitchy and rushed ones.
Delaying games "because the console isnt doing well enough", has nothing to do with games being solid and less glitchy.
I suppose this comment is a bit more directed towards the 3DS Lite release, along with the Wii U. Hopefully, they'll change the name and release it with a few different games in the mix.
They should've just avoided fans hype and released 3DS by July-Aug. When eShop would be solid with Netflix, Nintendo Video. While library holding OoT & Star Fox.
I dont care about 3DS's first party.. It is alway about first party.. Third party is the most important major to make the portable/console successful. I am not buying 3DS at all for other 3 years to have better games from third party. Money wise and save for me right now. The same for WiiU.. I dont know about this console just yet.
Well he is correct, I mean slow launch of the eShop and good games kinda killed the 3DS, but I think the new games are going to boost its sales.
They could take the delay time to improve on them...
Or perhaps I'm wrong?
Anyway, first parties won't save the 3DS alone. If the 3DS really flunks (which I doubt will happen), don't expect the next iteration to sell well unless Nintendo uses some ultimate marketing. (I really hope for head tracking for the iteration)
The reason for the delay is stated "because the console isnt doing well enough". They didnt say we are working on the game to improve glitches and make it more solid.
Its purely because of marketing/business reasons, nothing else.
Well, I see my old self again. I really need to slap myself.
Does the third party seriously think by delaying and cancelling games will help improve the console sales? Nintendo gave them the chance, they screwed up. The poor sales are mostly because the lack of games available to the consumers. Will people seriously buy a console with hardly any games for it? This is Nintendo's fault they shouldn't have put faith on the third party instead they should have got their AAA titles ready for launch.
Third parties haven't exactly put faith in Nintendo either. After the whole Wii debacle I don't think that a lot of third parties will be flocking to another Nintendo system unless they're making crappy casual games. I'm sure we don't need a "Just Dance 3D".
I'm just thinking Nintendo should've designed a better system in general.
I thought third parties hardly put any faith on Nintendo all the time?
Third parties barely ever put any faith on nintendo.
but seriously, they havent done any BIG MISTAKE by not releasing some of their first party stuff. That WOULD have made a difference, but woudnt keep things steady.
