1st off all yes Nintendo is in a decline. But that doesn’t mean Nintendo is doomed and gone. It will take quite some time for Nintendo to “fall” Anyway read on below.
PlayStation UK Managing Director Fergal Gara has admitted that the decline of Nintendo could ultimately be detrimental to the video game market. Gara says that Nintendo successfully appeals to the younger consumer group that Sony is trying to go after with titles such as Knack and says there would be a huge gap in the market.
“[The decline of Nintendo] could be detrimental to the market, unless people like us raise our game and help tap into the younger consumer group that they serve rather well. That is the challenge to us. We need to bring maybe more family-friendly, more casual experiences into the market. I think there’s a big market segment there that we should take the challenge to engage and I see lots of potential to do that.”
“The DS family was the bestselling format last year, despite the stellar sales of the PS4 for the last four or five weeks, it was still the best selling console or console family.”
“I think Vita has maybe not a huge position in the marketplace, but a very unique position. First of all it’s the only device that offers the same level of control and interaction, it’s the only device to offer the same level of visual beauty, and now it’s the only console to offer that companionship with the leading home games console.”
