So I just saw the video on youtube and I'm sure some people have heard. My question is that if it's capable of 4.6 TF's than make the announcement and start production. If they wait any longer it will be dated. The problem these days is that they wait too long and release outdated tech. They should suck it up like Sega and move on.

There's a reason Sega is gone and Nintendo is still around. Think about it.

The only reason Nintendo is still around is because they had more money to invest and recover. Sega couldn't afford to take the extra steps. Look at Microsoft. They have lost more money than Sega ever lost. They just had more to lose.

That's true, but if you think about it, where would the gaming industry be without Nintendo? You would just have Microsoft and Sony to contend with.

No I don't want to live in that entertainment world.

I don't want any company to go away but Nintendo really needs to step it up and pretty soon. If they made a move now they could compete and perhaps surpass the PS4. They shouldn't scrap the Wii U but perhaps come with the next gen and slowly do away with the Wii U. They have a chance if they act now but they are on the cycle like Sega where they were ahead but yet behind all at the same time. The industry is way more tough than it use to be for sure. Luckily the Ouya and Steam Machines wont be much competition. The problem is Nintendo focused on the physical experience of gaming and forgot about the graphical part which now seems to be of importance.

How do you get Game devs to support the Wii U like they support the 3ds

Nintendo right now has a problem convincing developers to make games for the Wii U, they however do not have that problem with their handhelds, in fact the only competitor they have in that sphere is the PS vita, tablets and smart phones.

So what I believe they are going to do is create an enhanced, capacitive touch-screen, game-pad like handheld that plays 3DS/Wii U games standalone while also being able to interface with the Wii U utilizing Nintendo network ID's. Now look at it from the point of view of a game developer who doesn't see the Wii U as a viable platform but Nintendo's handhelds are.

If Nintendo Fusion is true they pretty much have to support it.

Except Fusion is obviously fake. I can't believe people are still debating the idea.

Yawn. Don't really care what they run as long as they keep churning out good games.

Sega also released a string of bad hardware, starting with two unnecessary add-ons for the Sega Genesis. Nintendo had enough money because they made smart business decisions, and they didn't panic when they made bad ones like Sega did.

It may not sound great to Nintendo fans, but Nintendo's making the smart business decision in not abandoning the Wii U, which is by all means a money sink for them. In this situation, most companies act drastically and make a rash decision trying to recoup losses immediately. Nintendo's still around because they know how to patiently wait out the market.

Nintendo's still around because they made all their money selling hardware, something that Sega wasn't capable of doing well. That's why the Sega Saturn was such a disaster, and that's why they rushed out the Dreamcast to make up for it, which is also something that cost them dearly in the form of leaving the hardware business forever.

Absolutely. Virtual Boy aside, even Nintendo's failures have brought in money. Gamecube might have been their grand failure, but it was selling at a profit for all, or at least most, of its life cycle. Now, the Wii U is not in the same boat. Nintendo's losing money with every sale, and it's not even selling that well.

But with that said, the Wii U isn't even the disaster something like the Sega Saturn, or hell, the Sega CD (possibly 32x) which had literally six games released.

As Nintendo gamers become infuriated and rant and rave on these boards, Nintendo's not bleeding more money trying to bring in a few more gamers for the Wii U, and that's exactly why they're still in business. It's not always the most consumer friendly, but they're not burying themselves in debt and bad investments trying to save a bad investment, which probably can't be saved.

As much as I love the Wii U, I think it's kind of in the same boat as the terminally ill. Nintendo's going to make us "as comfortable as possible," with a dozen or so great games a year, and then as soon as it's acceptable, they're going to bury this beast and move on to something else.

There is no rumor, if you're referring to that tired old rumor from months, that was so debunked a long time ago dude. That "new platform" Nintendo was working is the QOL platform.

In terms of next-gen, I imagine their 7th home console will come out holiday 2016 at the earliest but probably holiday 2017. They'll likely use a non PowerPC based Intel CPU, an AMD GPU and 8GB-12GB RAM, with a 2Tflop GPU and price it at $200. Iwata himself said the "days of selling 30,000 yen and 20,000 yen" hardware is over. Meaning the days of selling $300 consoles and $200 handhelds is over. I'd fully expect their next handheld to be $150-$170 at launch, next console to be $200-$250

@bonesawisready5: I hope your right and it's obviously pointless to try to keep up with PC's because at this point it's financially impossible. I will even be surprised if there is a next gen console of any sort.

Let's not forget that we have Nintendo to thank for the Playstation, too... Ya know, because Nintendo rejected Sony's greedy "IP sharing", and Sony got mad and said "well then, we'll make our own console entirely!"... Yes, Sony fans mocking Nintendo are mocking the reason they even exist... :D

Nintendo needs to undergo serious changes, and not just with their hardware.
