Nintendo Explained

Nintendo is posting a loss of $850 million. It’s serious. Here’s why. Angry Birds? Why buy a console when you play on your phone! What is Nintendo Wii U? They haven’t produced a loss in 30 years, but recent mistakes like a $250 3DS that had to be priced lower is part of the problem. The consoles are supposed to be profitable, but the 3DS isn’t. The signature games are helping, but the gimmicks are failing. Is the 3D really important? Not at all. (Japantimes – 3DS)
