Nintendo seemed to adopt a policy of being their customer's worst enemy instead of being a proper challenger to their rivals ever since the SNES era. They would be on top of the world right now if it wasn't for retarded mistake after mistake. They've been one of the most paranoid companies against piracy since day 1, and it does not take a world class economist to realize how much they have suffered as a result of that stance.

Most would say they 'won' the last console generation despite weaker hardware. Seriously, look at what you're saying. Wii and DS absolutely destroyed.

edit: not saying I support their decisions, but 'mistake after mistake'? Pfffft.

I was talking about home consoles only.. everyone knows they own the portable scene.

And yes, they may have sold more Wii's than any other console that they ever released, but it sold on a gimmick, and I would reckon that the software sales were nowhere near the success that the actual console was. They could have had a robust online plan that did not punish legitimate users with crap DRM, but again.. they dropped the ball when their competitors had solid online offerings in place for their competing consoles. That kept gamers coming back time and time again to their competitors, and not so much the wii.

Worst of all, the wiiU launch shows they haven't learned from their mistakes in the previous generation.. and as much as I love Nintendo, I don't foresee the gimmick strategy going over quite as well for them this time around.
