We are speculating. How can you think we're not?

You're using a past record to judge them on, and I'm using what's currently happening, in that many developers have promised to support the console. But neither is 100% going to happen, so we are just speculating about what will happen. Until it releases, we don't know. Unless you've gone into the future and seen it of course, which I doubt. God didn't invent time traveling.

That's right, you did. I'm pulling a Microsoft and copying your ideas!

Maybe Icarus is from the future? That's why his argument isn't based on something uncertain!

All I'm saying is that we can make educated presumptions based upon their track record. The last several years for Nintendo haven't exactly been all rosy.

And I can make educated presumptions on what is currently happening too. Things can change, believe it or not.

Don't try using logic against me! My arguments require the unshaped fantasy that the future provides.

They are .. The mobile market and iOS already has the largest foot print .. They do that without even trying, it was just an off shoot of iPhone/itouch/iPad popularity . Jobs never planned for gaming to be so popular

. Imagine if they actually put some effort in to the games industry

Yes you would a portable one, like ones running ios which has a bigger foot pront than any gaming hand held now ...Also give it a gen or two all all home consoles will be dlc aswell .. It's a given

They can but that's yet to happen. It's up to Nintendo to fix that. You're optimistic about their future whereas I'm not.

No they are not stupid which is why they will aim the system at its core demo graphic kids/soccer mums and families .. nOT gamers

Nin said the same crap about we have learnt from what went wrong after the n64 and cube .. They learnt plenty .. Change your target audience away from core gamers .. And they did .. Very fucking well

It's almost like they are competing will fucking leapfrog tbh these days! And they already have a gaming tablet .. So Nintendo are copying the, I guess

Yeah, but I meant a home console. App only wouldn't work. Can't really make a home console with just an app store is what I meant. And as soon as they become full-games, they're not apps, it's just digital distribution. Apple is to apps what Steam is to digitial distribution. I don't think they'll try and crack into the home console market. And I was just arguing they wouldn't just come in and destroy the other 3 competitors.

Nintendo are clever. They're keeping the demographic of families. That's there's, they're not going to lose that. That's why the kept the 'Wii' name. But they're not just catering for them now; now they're actively trying to bring back the other gamers by ensuring the platform has lots of 3rd party releases by catering for the third-party devs. Say what you like about Nintendo, they're fucking good at making money, and so they're optimising how much money they'll make by trying to please both sectors.

With who have already promised to develop for it, it seems to be working too.

Apps, digital distribution is the same thing to apple. I took an office suite from the mac app store on my desktop, i can get reason and logic as apps. The latest osx release only came via the app store not retail. Apple are already getting ready to stop retail and go pure elc for the desktop os so they have full control, They are offering full products as apps .. App is just a name . If I was to download a game from steam apple would call that an app.

They say the same thing about 3rd pArties every generation and look what happens. None of them really bother .. I'll believe it when I see it .. More likely to win the euro lottery than nintendo get good 3rdArty support tbh .. No matter what they say
