If Nintendo were to move backwards with their next home console by removing Wii support and bringing back a traditional controller like that of a PS4 or X1 controller, would that benefit Nintendo?
No one likes to buy older console accessories for brand new price and most complain about the lack of traditional controller support in video games. Removing the compatibility for the Wii would finally put the accessories at a reasonable price. Bringing a new traditional controller with touch support like the PS4 controller would keep new games feeling oldschool while still keeping them new and fresh. It also doesn't feel like something is forced upon you like the gamepad or Wii Motion controls. I feel that one of the reasons why Nintendo has lost a lot of core fans in the past in favor to competition like Sony and Microsoft is because of that very reason. I personally feel that if Nintendo did do something like this, 3rd party support would look at Nintendo in a new light, maybe a breeze of fresh air even after all the years supporting Sony and Microsoft only. People claim that a lot of 3rd party publishers left Nintendo during the Gamecube era, but I think that the Wii was what really put the nail on the coffin for them. Being underpowered in comparison to the competition which is still the case with the Wii U.
If Nintendo brought their new console hardware at the same level of the PS5 and X(2) then I can't imagine that doing anything but just sweetening the deal for 3rd party publishers.
Anyway, do you think that if Nintendo decided to stop trying to change gaming like they're trying to do so much and take a step backward to follow the trend of its current competition, would this be moving forward in the right direction for Nintendo?
