I'd argue that Nintendo wasn't ready to replace the Wii at the time.And I'd agree with you. It wasn't which is pretty much the entire problem. I've said this before: what was Nintendo doing with all that time? It sacrificed the last two years of Wii's life to not be prepared to launch a new console. Nintendo wasn't ready to replace Wii, but it should have. As a console, Wii U in late 2013 after all those stability and speed patches is what Nintendo should have been able to launch. I realize that's easy to say way after the fact, but I don't think anything most of us have been saying is all that outlandish or unreasonable. Nintendo made so many mistakes a company in its position shouldn't make. It has been in the game too long to release a console that brutally slow and unstable (did anyone not get at least one weird error at launch?).
Yet I've heard no news of new hirings or acquisitions. Are they aware of the problem? Are they making any attempts to address it?Nintendo opened a new building in Kyoto this year. It is similar in scale to the company's headquarters which is also in Kyoto.
