    Apple will never, never take down the king of video games.

    Nintendo is more than a reigning champ, they are the stuff of legend. I was born (1991) into a world that accepted that nintendo was the alpha and omega of video games.

    Progress be damned, nintendo is here to stay

    Nintendo has been in gaming since 1889. Don't think they are going anywhere. I think the only thing that hurt them along the way was dropping Sony in the first place. If they never would have done that there would be no playstation, well not under Sony's command. I think that was the biggest mistake that Nintendo ever did.

    How fitting that Apple should go up again Nintendo, the one company in the world whose policies I despise as much as Apple's (not counting Microsoft, who are still in a league of their own). Actually, Nintendo are pretty much the Apple of video games; they have the same ridiculously over-the-top secretive development model, the same way of trying to push smaller companies around, the same nightmarish way of handling licensing and IP, even the same notorious censorship policies when it comes to games on their systems. Even the Wii's design reeked of Apple's typical "futuristic" design style.

    Don't get me wrong, they make good games, much like Apple make good phones, but both companies have a LONG way to go in terms of customer service.

    nintendos future depends on how the 3ds turns out and how god their next console is. unless they can get a larger crowd, nintendo is not going to do well over the next year or two.

    Don't quiet think so. Nintendo has been making a killing in all of their products since launch till now. They are aimed at a massive audience of families that play games. I don't think 3Ds will not make a difference in their overall view. I mean look at VirtualBoy. It came in and was all hyped. It failed and they moved on to still rock the market with their other lineups.

    I think Nintendo is upset because they know that games are - is - going to be the selling thing for the iPad and they feel threatened?

    Nintendo won the generation war, it doesn't matter if the system itself isn't as powerful, they did the best.

    Now settle down with the fanboyism.

    LoL.... for fsp I like my computer, for sports games I like my Xbox 360 and for hand held gaming PSP ftw. Sorry but no way in hell an iphone app can compete with the psp r/t user interface and over all fun factor IMHO. Now if I'm sitting on the pot or am bored at work, iPhone games are fine.

    bwahahahahah wow that was a good one. Sorry but dollar for dollar Macs just can't compete with a PC when it comes to gaming. I know you're drunk on the kool-aid steve is giving you but just because stevie says it doesn't make it true. Nice one though.... I needed a little comedy break in my night.

    Nintendo didnt defeat anyone, thats the joke statement of the year. Wii has its perks, but cant compeat with PS3 and 360 graphics and over all multimedia. Therefor the 3DS, or whatever they call it, cant compeat with the iPhone. You always have your phone with you. Nintendo cant make a device that is more convenient then iPhone. Nintendo is getting out of there league, stay in elementary schools.

    No offense bro


    And there is no sense at all arguing which console is better, as it in the end comes down to the individual and his decision which one is more suitable for him.

    Alot of people here may not be into nintendo anymore because everyone is older but look at the console sales number. Nintendo tops ps3 and xbox month after month. Ps3 and xbox are dropping prices just to compete with nintendo buyers. Ps3 and xbox are lossing money for every console they sell when nintendo are making profits.

    cod,battlefield,fallout and simillar games on it.. For sports
    and racing it's defnitely the ps3 (cnt choose btween xbox
    and ps3) and when I'm on the move my faithful two year old psp 2000 with custom
    firmware
    which replaced
    my gameboy andvanced sp and can't be bothered to
    buy the psp go cus it has nothin new to offer.. Nintendo is my lest favourite console
    makers as they don't have appealing graphics the wii just sold more because of the kids and all by i
    dnt think it's a win among hardcore gamers.... iPhone in my opinion
    is btr than any ds ever made

    Nintendo have seen a slight drop in profit compared to the last few years....um...maybe cos everyone and their mother has a DS & Wii at this stage. The Wii is coming up to 4 years old and the DS is nearly 6 years old. You cant expect growth in sales to continue forever.

    I thought Nintendo would have more sense than the "fear" Apple's "gaming" side of things. At the end of the day, to play alot of games and play them well, you need physical buttons.

    I'd sit down for up to a few hours playing a DS, but iDevices games are only good to pass the time in a waiting room and if your bored in class.

    And you could buy a Wii & a DS & a 360 for the price of 1 iPad. Apple's devices are only ever going to be supplementary to a persons dedicated gaming device. And those that dont have consoles already are not buying iDevices for its games.

    So take a chill pill Nintendo, you have nothing to worry about, you'll be #1 for many more years to come
