“Meh.”

After seeing PS4 and Xbox One’s launch titles for this holiday season, Reggie gave an unimpressed response:

“It’s all about the games. The competitive systems have announced their launch lineups. I’m allowed to say ‘Meh’. I look at our lineup of titles and I feel good about our lineup. We’ve got Zelda. We’ve got Mario. We’ve got Donkey Kong. In addition to great titles like Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101, I feel very good about our lineup, and I feel very good about the value proposition we’re putting out there for the consumer.”

Any gamer knows that the slew of upcoming titles for Wii U and 3DS is, without a doubt, the most impressive line up for any console in recent years. Nintendo always produces highly polished first party games, and with these games coming to 3DS and Wii U, Reggies has good reasons to feel good about Nintendo’s lineup.

PS4 and Xbox One’s launch lineups include the usual FIFA, Madden, NBA, and Just Dance games. The staple series Battlefield and Assassin’s Creed also return. In addition to the stables, Ubisoft’s Watch_Dogs will be coming for all consoles this holiday season.

    It’s goog to know that Reggie feels… good… Awkward wording there! Lol, I agree with Reggie, the Nintendo holiday lineup is pretty damn solid. When Nintendo rains, it pours. Or is it… reigns? =) I hope the $100 difference with PS4 and $200 difference with the One will have the impact Nintendo is hoping for. Plus, all those games, I’m seeing the possibility of a 3DS resurgence…

    As a self-proclaimed Nintendo historian, I shall now coin new terms. Every Nintendo handheld’s lifespan can be split into two periods: pre-Pokémon and post-Pokémon. The post-Pokémon periods of Game Boy and Game Boy Advance made sales soar. The Nintendo DS post-Pokémon era made it best selling handhand platform ever made.

    The Nintendo 3DS currently sits at 32.48 million units sold, which is about how much Nintendo 64 sold in its lifespan, and about 40% of the GBA’s lifetime sales. These sales were only achieved in 2.5 years, so I speculate that the post-Pokémon period of Nintendo 3DS will see us at least double these sales. My ultimate prediction is that 3DS will outsell GBA within another 2 years or so. Depending on how long the 3DS lifespan is, it may very well outsell the original DS too, but that’s probably 5-6 years down the line.

    This is your market analysis from me. A good year for 3DS indeed.
