* Nintendo going big again

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
Loads of Nintendo news for today: The Wii's remote will be a web-surfing tool, the price of 25,000 yen = $225, or 225 Euros, and they think they know what went wrong with the Gamecube.

Here's a hint: they thumbed their nose at third parties, and it bit them in the butt.

Or as they put it:

Nintendo of America's executive vice president of sales and marketing Reggie Fils-Aime, in an interview found in the latest issue of Nintendo Power, admitted that the initial software lineup for the GameCube was simply not "diverse and strong enough from a first and third-party perspective." And compounding that problem, he said, was that the next wave of titles was far too slow in arriving.

In order to avoid repeating this mistake with the Wii, Nintendo said that it has already changed its strategy and has been far more open with its partners from much earlier on.
