Is Nintendo Doomed? Let’s see what the numbers say!

Untitled 9

Oh man, like if Nintendo or the Wii U needed any more wood on that fire that’s been burning for months. Just a couple of days ago EA announced that they have absolutely zero¬†games in development for Wii U. And just as you would’ve expected everyone came out spreading fear and calling the Wii U the Dreamcast, among other things. To be honest, I’m a Nintendo fan but I’m not blind. This is obviously not good news at all. There is no way we can spin this in a good way, but is it game over? Should Nintendo just throw the towel and call it a day? Or do the numbers suggest something completely different? Let’s look at this situation with a business and analytical approach.

What Nintendo needs is… Momentum

I’m sure you have heard said more than once by now, “The Wii U is doomed, Nintendo should go third party.” There has been many debates, arguments, relationships broken and gamers all over the internet trying to find an explanation to what’s going on with the Wii U. Some say that there is no way to fix what’s been done. Others say to give it time, but it’s time enough? Time doesn’t fix anything unless you do something during that time. So the question is, what does Nintendo needs to do now before the PS4 and Next Xbox are launched?

Miiverse Madness

Since this is going to be my first official post I decided to make it a bit lighthearted. And what better way than with some Miiverse art! Here are some of my ‘masterpieces,’ ok they are not that good (at least compared to most Miiverse artists) but I was impressed at myself with some of them. So here you go, hit the jump for the art!

My Introduction

First of all I want to welcome and thank¬†you for landing here. I know you didn’t get here on purpose, so I don’t have a lot of time to hook you into browsing my blog and following it so let’s get to it.

Background Information

I’m just a regular guy who plays video games during his free time. I used to own a gaming news website called TWGNews a couple of years back, however I sold it and the person who bought it didn’t do anything with it. As life went on I sold my Wii not too long after that and moved on from video games a bit. Recently I decided to buy a Wii U and got back at playing video games. As a result, I found myself more and more involved in searching for news and participating in forums discussions so I decided to make my own blog. This blog won’t be were you find your latest Nintendo news, I recommend Gonintendo for that. Playing Nintendo will be used for Analysis, editorials and opinion articles written by me. (Sometimes I will write about gaming in general). I’ll tend to focus on the business aspect of the gaming industry, specifically Nintendo, and sometimes I will write some small reviews for specific games.
