    Nintendo Games NO to Smartphones


    Nintendo has said that it won't put its games on smartphones.

    Speaking at an investors meeting, president Satoru Iwata defended sticking to its own hardware after disappointing sales for Wii U and 3DS, according to The Wall Street Journal.

    "The spread of smart devices does not spell the end of game consoles. It's not that simple," he said.
    "It doesn't mean that we should put Mario on smartphones."

    While 3DS forecasts were down for the financial year, Nintendo management stated that it was the best-selling games system globally for 2013 - including in the UK and US - proving its strategy is on the right track.

    Despite the comments from Iwata, Nintendo recently said that it will incorporate smart devices into its consoles.

    Nintendo has slashed its forecast for Wii U sales from 9m to 2.8m for the financial year, which Iwata has refused to resign over.

    Analyst Michael Pachter has suggested that Nintendo should go third-party.

    I doubt they would need to go 3rd party.

    Better marketing, releasing more first party games more regularly and actually having a productive; constructive relationship with 3rd party publishers will slowly help.

    They're just too naive. Releasing various iterations of Mario can only get them so far.
