nintendo's greatest strength

History. No other company has such a strong stable of intellectual properties that are able to move systems with every release. The willingness to gamble now and again is also a big plus.

nintendo's greatest weakness

Sometimes Nintendo is a bit too stubborn when it comes to taking the smaller steps forward. Not taking advantage of the CD format hurt the sales of the N64 and the GCN's miniDVDs didn't help either. Now we see the Wii is slow out of the gate when it comes to online multiplayer and the lack of HD support might drive some gamers away.

advice to nintendo

Get online multiplayer for the Wii up and running, drop the friend code system, and get some more games for the hardcore out there. Other than that, Nintendo's market strategy for the Wii and DS are brilliant.
