Good point, but you can only read "Nintendo should just make Pokemon for phones then they'd make a lot of money!" and "Sony can easily buy Capcom now by just buying half their stock!" before you start to break.

It's widely known that Pokťmon Snap was originally not a pokemon game and it was just a game about taking pictures of things in a regular town.

At the eleventh hour they just slapped pokemon on it so it would sell.

They're doing the same poo poo with Hyrule Warriors. And they also did it with Starfox Adventures

These people are correct in their assumption that anything multiplatform branded with Nintendo would sell. Because Nintendo has taken sub-par games in the past and used their own branding to make them more appealing.

I thought they upped the connectivity for the new remakes so that it's pretty much always online it's just everyone is in their own separate world until trading/battle.

A Console pokemon would still be good because the world itself is still pretty small and having pokemon visible in the field would be neat.

Jumping into the mobile space, which they know nothing about, isn't going to suddenly turn their business around.

Going to third-party only would likely be a death knell.

They do have a decent amount of cash in reserve, but they can't afford to "just spend it to secure third party developers" because it would absolutely destroy their stock value.

They can't "just make a system with the same specs as the PS4 or XBox One" because they aren't going to be able to get the parts for the same prices as Sony and Microsoft do.

Killing the Wii U early (within 3 years of launch) would be a terrible move, regardless of how powerful their follow-up system is, because it would destroy consumer confidence.

It's probably going to get a whole lot worse before it actually gets better. A big thing is that NOA is still tethered heavily to NOJ and can't operate independently like Sony and Microsoft.

This also ties into what games can and can't be localized. Because you have people at Sony working to bring stuff like Yakuza over or getting HD remakes of Grim Fandango. Granted neither are a big name title but having little interesting games between AAA 10/10 GOTY multiconsole releases really does help the system in the longrun.

I think Sears acquired K-mart and the only ones that benefited were K-mart stockholders.

Yeah they've put themselves in a lovely situation by misreading the market and reacting poorly.

They need to give NoA more autonomy since they clearly understand the market more and also the Japanese home video game market is dying.

These things aren't what people in that thread talk about, though. They talk about stupid poo poo like what I brought up or Nintendo buying Capcom.

Even when it happened people said it was Sears that started the merger thing because K-Mart was such poo poo and I don't think anybody thought they had any money at all.

Capcom just isn't playing defense against someone taking them over by buying up their own stock anymore.
