podcast108Well, we finally got a release date for Animal Crossing: New Leaf! But unfortunately, my special Animal Crossing podcast has to be postponed. So this week, let’s talk about Nintendo. Specifically that they’re dying. Have you heard that they’re doomed?

About Chris Eades

(Writer) I love Animal Crossing, music games (even though I can't sing or play instruments) and adventure games. And the occasional 40+ hr JRPG when I can find the time! I live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband and our hamster, Ch'p.

    Oops, problem with the link to the video… Found it on Youtube, though.

    I do think people piled onto Sony when the PS3 was announced (the price tag, the system specs overkill, “Rrrrrridge Racer!”), but I suppose people weren’t sounding the death knell for Sony because it’s such a large company, with all of these divisions. With Nintendo, consoles and games are their bread and butter, so if they make a major misstep (and I agree with you that their two newest consoles are not major missteps– certainly not Virtual Boy level), they could potentially be in trouble!

    Even though I don’t really buy consoles (I have my DSi from three years ago, and that will be all for a while), I still have a bit of a thing for Nintendo, and I’m sure they’ll be just fine.

    Up until a year ago, the only systems I had were Nintendo. And I was decently happy. But even with a 360 and PS3 now, I still feel a love for Nintendo. There are still exclusive franchises that will keep me coming back, and a bunch of them will be coming out this year (especially Pikmin – can’t wait for that).

    I think people just rag on Nintendo because it’s been around the longest, and veered toward a perceived “kiddieness” with the Wii which scared off “serious” gamers (which is ridiculous).
