More analysts being goofballs enjoy.
News publication Bloomberg has spoken to a number of industry analysts who all seem united in saying that Nintendo needs to bring their intellectual property to other devices such as smartphone, tablets, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. You can read their views, below.
“Nintendo should offer Super Mario or Zelda games on smartphones and tablets and raise money,” said Tomoaki Kawasaki, an analyst at Iwai Cosmo Holdings Inc. in Tokyo. “If such games become popular, some people may want to play it on Nintendo’s machines.”
“Nintendo has a treasure trove of highly recognized characters. They could make billions in carefully devising a strategy that could exploit its strength in content without the price destruction that would come from abandoning its hardware.”
“Nintendo’s console side is broken,” Pachter said in an interview. “They’re not even an also-ran there, they just don’t matter.”
Iwata “has to take responsibility for the Wii U missing the mark,” Pachter said. “He will be under pressure to make dramatic changes. If he can do so while remaining in charge, more power to him, but they need to make some changes.”
