    Default Pokemon is killing Nintendo


    Link

    I can't even with this article, I just can't even.

    Is the person who wrote this even a gamer? hell are they even a living breathing soul-filled person? or are they a literal Apple ad bot?

    "Head above the sand"

    Doesn't Nintendo have so much money that they can afford to be in the red for something like 20 years with no problem?

    I... I had trouble understanding where this person is coming from, because that's not my viewpoint at all. Good god, I could imagine AW on mobile devices, and hell to the pineapplein' naw I wouldn't pay $1.99 a month for new campaigns.

    its not that they have that much money, but their IP's are worth so much, they can last till 2050 selling off IP's. of course, its more likely that they will take their IP's to the gave if it became that serious.

    "Nintendo have 812.8 billion Yen (6.7/$10.5 billion) in the bank enough for it to take a 20 billion Yen loss (163/$257 million) every year until 2052. Then theres almost 469 billion Yen (3.8/$6.0 billion) held in premises, equipment and investments. When that runs out were in the year 2075 by this point."
    This is without selling IPs.
    Anyone that thinks nintendo is gonna die anytime soon is kidding themselves.

    take the FULL quote


    which in the end states that its their IP's that give it that value

    Isn't it plausible that by that time (2052||2075) the idea of "home consoles" will no longer be in the marketplace?

    Also, I personally don't know of many 'gamers' that actually like playing games on mobile unless the game is built specifically for a mobile-touchbased interface (ie. game designed for the hardware). Sure, I could see the casual market potentially being an untapped gold mine, but that would probably lead to an alienated population of hardcore gamers that will just go somewhere else for their fix.

    And this...
    Why is a Konami IP being referenced in a list of Nintendo IP?

    He's not wrong.

    Here's how the conversation went down:

    Yes they do. But you said:

    Which is not true because Malthe pointed out:

    So without their IPs they'll live until 2050 and well more than 20 years.

    The article has a point.

    Sure, it makes the mistake of treating Castlevania as a Nintendo franchise, but it does have a point. Nintendo could make CRAZY money if they went down the freemium path. Much more than what they're making off of lolWii U. (Dreamcast sold more than Wii U has sold so far when it discontinued.)

    Granted, this is the one path I'd actually choose Nintendo's current model over.....

    what? if anything Nintendo's exclusives is what makes it a viable competitor.

    Also, Wii U sales sliding was a forcast in Jan of 2014, I dont see that in Wii Us current future.
