Subject: Nintendo Plans To Stay In The Console Market
Nintendo may not command quite the household name as it used to be, what with competitors like Sony and Microsoft eating up the market, but you have to admit, they do make some damn fine games. I imagine some have speculated that the GameCube would be Nintendo's last foray into the console word, not so according to this article over at cube.ign.com. Apparently they're looking at a 2005 timeframe for their next console release, which happens to coincide with Sony's plans for a PS3 release. The best quote has to be from Satoru Iwata (President - Nintendo of Japan) who chimes in with "When we withdraw from the home game console, that's when we withdraw from the video game business." Long live Mario, Luigi, Link and all the Nintendo classics!
