Am I the only one that finds nintendo's kiddy attempts at comedy nauseating? the nintendo direct was like a giant parody of what nintendo has become. iwata wearing the white poofy gloves surrounded by guys dressed up in mario and luigi suits; miyamoto skipping around with CG cuteified pikmin. its embarassing. the only comedy going on is how nintendo is being run.

 

lets start with iwata. nintendo needs strong leadership. iwata looks like a shrimp, no muscle mass whatsoever. nintendo needs a strong, physically imposing president like reggie, kaz, or peter moore. someone that will lay down the law and speak in a stern voice about nintendo's future games, projects and partnerships. no more joking around. no more pandering to five year olds. lets get serious nintendo; your company is in trouble.

The man convinced me to get a 3DS, so....

 

Not gonna pick up a WiiU anytime soon though. I need to see a new Metroid Prime, a new Paper Mario, and a new Zelda before I commit. I got burned with the Wii, and I don't plan to have that happen again.

No, it's in the evening in Japan. It's 7AM now in Tokyo.

Nintendo = shit.

I actually prefer Playstation All-Stars BR, Modnation Racers and LBP Karting more than the Smash Brothers / Mario Kart combo. I bet I have put 20 hours in PSASBR this week. But good God Sony's DLC strateegy with that game sucks.

Iwata is great he is the only CEO I think of the big 3 that has any developing experience. He programmed Earthbound and many other games for HAL Labs.

Is this topic a joke?  If not, then it should be.  Nintendo Direct has been a huge hit, humanizing the top executives (like Iwata) while providing a good amount of content and quality.  Microsoft and Sony would love to have the respect Nintendo gets from their fans.

 

Nintendo Direct is PR genius.

8/10 troll thread for unexpected troll topic. I really expected for him to point out another user instead of flaming Nintendo.

I bet iwata is more manly than you OP.

They definitely need to make some changes, that's for sure. I still don't understand why they would abandon the Wii and then make a Wii 2 with a tablet gamepad. They really needed more innovation then that. Then didn't have the games ready either, just like with the 3DS.

I find Sony's characters and worlds much more interesting. Sorry.

He has a soothing voice. Yeah, I know it's weird, but his flipnote presentation was relaxing as f*ck.

Nintendo is hit and miss, when they hit big though that's when I pay them attention, why change them(?), all they can do other than what they're doing is to try being like the others, and we already have Sony, MS, and PC, and most of the content on either 3 is shared, I pay attention to Nintendo for their own unique stuff.

If wiiu does very poorly(over time, people) I think he will leave Nintendo. I don't think he will be fired though; Nintendo is too honorable of a name to do such a thing.

Just like how I find Nintendo's massive archive of franchises to be more interesting while I find Sony's to be uninspiring and generic. Thanks for the laughs, and we'll agree to disagree.

Son, these are what you call guilty pleasures.  You're supposed to keep them to yourself so that you can enjoy them while not feeling shamed and being ridiculed by your peers.

You're welcome.

Well, that "shrimp" ( :P ) also made Nintendo what they are today - a strong company that broke many sales records and has a strong market position.

Under Yamauchi, Nintendo was declining in sales in the second half of the 90s and early 2000s and lost market share and recognition to Sony's PlayStation.

It was Iwata who turned that around, first by making the DS, which was a massive success, and then the Wii, which was also a massive success.

The initial problems with 3DS and, as it now seems, the WiiU, might and likley will be overcome with time given.
