Nintendo: 'We Need Core Gamers'

Nintendo's long time fans are not impressed with its current strategy which focus heavily on watered down casual games. Nintendo is well aware of that and is promising to "balance" its future portfolio between causal and hardcore titles.

"We all read the blogs -- everyone does,"Denise Kaigler, Nintendo of America's VP of corporate affairs, says. "If you're asking if what we read on the blogs has an absolute impact on our strategy, I guess the simple answer is that our strategy isn't done right at that moment... our strategy is long-term. Our strategy has always been to expand the gaming universe."

However, she says, "We need core gamers. We recognize that and we've always known that, though. We announce games when they're ready to be announced. I'm glad you described the overall tone of the press conference as being balanced, because that's what our strategy is."

Nintendo: 'We Need Core Gamers'

They say that now, after all this time of "dumb" game releases. Sure there are some games that are worth the effort, but lets be honest, for every good one there are (at least) 10 bad ones.How can you expect to have "core" gamers in a console with not so many hardcore games...?With most of their porfolio being games for 5-12 year old kids, I'm not sure how things will improve unless they get their hands on some decent games.
