Long story short: Pokemon is making so much money that it prevents Nintendo from realizing that the only way to make lots of money is to bring their games to the iPad and iPhone.

 

And an unrelated factoid: only 1% of mobile game companies make a profit, and even the maker of Candy Crush is having financial problems

Can't do basic math, can they? If we assume the split of 75% of the games cost goes to Nintendo directly, we have .75 x 40(or in my case, 45) x 3,000,000. Looking at that directly, the games have made Nintendo over 2 days launching in 70% of the markets 90 Million. Add this into the fact that any 3DS buyer for this system is likely to spend/buy more games for the system, it's a chance of smaller short term gains for long term losses, especially with how the mobile market is in terms of pricing and game choices, not sure how this is a good idea.

Games that refuse to use Gameplay effectively to do anything are like films that refuse to use cinematography in film to do anything.

The article writer thinks Nintendo owns Castlevania. At least that is the way it comes across.

Edit: Massive brain fart. If you saw this earlier, ignore what I said.

 

I love how being successful with your current market strategy means you should change course entirely. lol

Nintendo filed a patent for gameboy emulation on pc, android and ios platforms.

Hopefully just to protect their IP, I like all the apple beige quilt screaming doom because they can't get good games legally
