[QUOTE]So Nintendo to handout IP to make dedicated mobile games, BUT still make dedicated portable/console games. To show they aren't quitting the console market, they are working on a new platform Codename NX, where DeNA will be central. http://abload.de/img/28lrsudw.jpg[/QUOTE] It appears that whatever the membership service they are creating is what is replacing Club Nintendo. I cannot possibly imagine what kind of rewards they could possibly offer to be on par with Club Nintendo. I hope whatever plans Nintendo has in store includes keeping the Smash Bros Amiibos in the light. They appear to be selling quite well, but seem to have very few uses and are kinda glorified memory cards for Smash. [QUOTE] I suspect the NX announcement was there just to let people know that Nintendo is still in the console wars. Personally I think announcing some hypothetical machine this far out feels like a nervous move but Nintendo usually errs on the side of extreme caution. The thing about this news is that it seems like Nintendo's version of the PlayStation Mobile. Given [URL=http://www.cnet.com/news/game-over-for-playstation-mobile-on-july-15-sony-says/]the way how Sony's project went[/URL], I'm wondering what Nintendo and DeNA have up their sleeves to make their project a success. Very intrigued indeed. [/QUOTE] Oh wow. I am kind of saddened by this. Isn't Brandon's game "Gunhouse" technically on the PS Mobile section of PS Vita? I never got around to getting a Vita and the game even though I always wanted to. [QUOTE]Not gonna lie, I'd be down for some Angry Goombas. It's their time to shine. [/QUOTE] Nintendo has so many games they could manipulate to be copycats of the more popular mobile games. I could see a remix of Yoshi's Cookie to a match three or a Yoshi game where you angle an egg and shoot it like Angry Birds. Wario Ware could easily transfer over. Nintendo Picross, Dr. Mario, Nintendogs? I kinda wish that Nintendo kind of attempted to do a mobile game approach to the 3DS eshop before going fully mobile. Those types of games could easily be made for the 3DS as well as a smartphone. The problem is Nintendo probably couldn't price them "correctly." Hell, Nintendo's Virtual Console has been $3-4 overpriced for the last few years. Why haven't we gotten remixes of Game and Watch games or the 3DS for 99 cents? Release one of those a month and it would give people a reason to look at the eshop more often. I really only open up the eshop if I read about a sale online.
