Nintendo software only.

If the NX fails, could they go software only?

They could afford a few losses. Not like they have Sony's or MS's overhead, they could keep losing money for awhile and be allright.

But if they re smart, they'd do it. Much, much more money to be made putting Mario on everyone elses platform.

Man, you ask this question every few months it seems.

I don't understand how Nintendo is in a better position than MS and Sony for failure.

MS has other profit makers. There's something called Windows that seems to be all the rage these days. Also, let's not include their enterprise infrastructure, cloud business and software (Nintendo would probably kill hundreds for the profit MS Office suite produces. And don't forget the millions they get for support contracts.

Sony I have seen from articles is a bit more dire. They're movie and music business, hardware departments are not nearly producing the amount of profit it used too. The PS4 is their money maker.

Nintendo on the other hand has games and consoles. If one fails again, I don't know if they have ability to design another console if the previous two were duds.....

Sure they do.

You know why Duke Nukem Forever took so long to make? Because they could afford to. 3d realms was sitting on a pile of money, and kept at their big sequel until the money ran out, many years later.

Nintendos in a similar position. They're sitting on more then enough money to keep going for a long time, even if met with failure after failure.

Nintendo's handhelds have outsold a lot of Sony and MS main consoles.

Let that sink in for a second.

Nintendo has been making profit as of late. They would rather make a lot more profit but for the last two years they stopped bleeding money.

PSP and all six owners.

Vita, I don't even know someone who considered buying one.

Pretty much everybody has at least one Nintendo hand held, if they have any.

Surprisingly, though, to this day, the 3DS still hasn't even come close to outselling the PSP.

I'm sure it will at some point, but it still hasn't as of today.

In fact, the only console to outsell the Nintendo DS was the PS2, which is the best-selling console of all time.

Which is a shame, because the PS Vita is nowhere near a bad handheld, it surpasses the PSP in many ways, except for game library.

Some of the BEST PSP games will never see the light of day on the vita.

A sidenote, I do own a NDS, but it doesn't power on anymore.

R.I.P. Phantom Hourglass sad

A huge part of that is the development of the mobile market, I'd argue that the PS Vita also took a hit because of that. Current handheld devices face stern competition from phones, so much that I fully expect the next generation of handhelds to be mostly compatible with Android game apps.

Well, the PSP ceased production in 2014, so there's that as well.

I doubt we can really count it as a fair fight during the first 5 years of the 3DS' life.

Regardless of the mobile market, the PSP was a massive commercial success for Sony, and practically all the games on it were PS2-quality games, in terms of Graphics AND Content.

Not arguing its better, but the PSP is a god compared to the PS Vita in terms of exclusives, because it had sooooo many ****ING games designed specifically for it as opposed to the VERY few Sony releases on the Vita, while the PSP was seen as a respectable high-end piece of hardware for its time that everyone wanted a piece of.

All this talk of a psp had me check the prices..

Damn, they're pricy for an older system. 50-60 for refurbished-used. Was hoping to land a 20 dollar used system, but guess not..

Nintendo has been such a disappointment in the last five years to me.

I wish they would. All of their consoles post N64 have been mostly dog shit, but I like some of their first party titles.

Super Mario Maker is a fantastic game. The only reason why I bought a Wii U. I'm hoping they continue putting out more content because the game is certainly missing a fair bit of interesting things from the big collection of 2D Mario games.

It's actually one game I wish a big publishers like EA or Activision has because there is no way they wouldn't be doing massive DLC packs for it. And truthfully, I wish Nintendo does as well.
