[citation][nom]slabbo[/nom]The Wii was the first time they made "cheap" hardware. You must have a really short history of Nintendo.[/citation]
no... nintendo has to this day never sold a console at a loss (innitialy) i think the 3ds may have changed that, but thats the fact. their hardware was always better than others, but they again never sold at a loss.
[citation][nom]Prophet4NO1[/nom]Sales are suffering for Nintendo, not from tablets and phones, but the fact that people never bought games for it. It was sold so cheap that many people picked it up as a gimmicky toy and that's it. I know more people with a Wii in a closet with one or two games than people with a large collection like any other console or PC gamer. People in the gaming industry have been talking about this for a few years now. Consoles sold, but not games. That will kill a console faster than anything.[/citation]
if the console was sold at a loss, yes, but the wii wasnt.
[citation][nom]osaeed88[/nom]Cheap hardware? What are you smoking kid? Xbox had RROD issues. PS3 had YLOD issues and what did the Wii have? Nothing! Go all the way back to Nes and look how Nintendo consoles were the most durable consoles you'll ever notice. Now look again, they still make rock solid consoles. I still have my Snes and still works since day one. Heck, go throw your Gamecube out of a 3 story building and it will survive and still play your favorite games.Games? I do agree that some are a little overpriced and boring, like the 3rd party ones.[/citation]
look into gameboy stories, you will hear of the system falling 3 stories onto concrete, the games going through the washer and playing like new, and so forth.
i wont comment on the actual story, mainly because my opinions on the issue and how to fix it will fall on deaf ears here.
