During Nintendo’s most recent investors’ meeting, CEO Satoru Iwata stated that the company believes that the standard software pricing model won’t be sustainable in the future. With the company struggling to turn a profit, the gaming giant is turning to China in their search for inventive ways to generate higher revenues, but what does that mean for the rest of Nintendo’s business?

Fans of Nintendo need not fear about the company’s new avenues, as they’ve stated time and time again that their core video game strategy isn’t going anywhere. While the company may shift its focus in other areas, this is merely a way to generate higher profits and keep Nintendo a viable business. In short,
Mario and Zelda are safe for now.

In their efforts to expand their business, Nintendo’s looking into the Chinese market for ideas on how to improve their profits, and while Iwata clarified these avenues won’t be released during the current fiscal year, it’s anyone’s guess what they might be. They’re merely exploring their options at this point to see what’s effective. How do you feel about Nintendo’s latest comments? Let us know in the comment section below.

Our Verdict


Ethan Lennaman
What's up Gamnesia readers, Name's Ethan. I like to make things up. It's my trade, my passion, and my lifeblood. I'm open to talk about any and all topics of discussion, should any of you care to engage me. Everything is fair game. Except the How I Met Your Mother finale. I'll talk about the Middle East, but I won't talk about that. And with that, I'll leave you with a quote from my favorite television series, Californication -- Rome is burning, he said, as he poured himself another drink. Yet, here I am knee deep in a river of p*****. Here it comes, she thought. Another self indulgent, whiskey soaked, diatribe about how f****** great everything was in the past. And how all us poor souls born too late to see the Stones at - wherever, or snort the good coke that they had at Studio 54 - well, we all just missed out on practically everything worth living for. And the worst part was, she agreed with him. Here we are, she thought, at the edge of the world - the very edge of western civilization and all of us are so desperate to feel something... anything... that we keep falling into each other and f****** our way toward the end of days. Cheers, fellow gamers. Long live Nintendo.
