Yeah, then they couldn't charge $30 for shovelware on Wii. ZING!
I think that the LAST thing Nintendo needs to do is get mixed up in all the 99 cent garbage games that are flooding the smartphone markets.

this signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by satan. go ahead dauntlessly! make rapid progress!

Excellent idea. Devalue IP to the point that it competes with garbage like angry birds and gets lost in the 99 cent shit show. That will definitely make revenue soar.
Also, last I checked the iPhone does not have a d-pad or buttons and every single game that does those things with virtual controls sucks balls. Even though I kind of agree with gargus about Nintendo making the same games over and over again I hope they NEVER go multiplatform. Let them do their own thing.

People need to realize that not every mobile game is successful nor will every mobile game go gangbusters like Angry Birds.

We have seen it with the iPhone and Android (not entirely related to gaming, I agree). Nonetheless, one can't deny that appearing on multiple platforms increases the potential for sales. Of course, the additional problem is how much of a competitive advantage Nintendo loses in the long run for doing it.

Nintendo doesn't need to release fucking terrible ass games on the iPod. Hell any company should stop making dumbed down ports of bad games for the iPod.

I think it's a good idea. Nothing wrong with having virtual console games on other mobile hardwares.
except that they usually suck

I think it's a good idea and will save Nintendo. If they just stick to the 3DS, that isn't competitive.
I don't understand how Nintendo needs "saving"... They sold over a 100 mil. Wiis and the DS is on track to be the best selling system PERIOD. People act like they went bankrupt because the 3DS had a rough launch window. If Nintendo survived two gens of being last place, they can survive this. If worst came to worst, Nintendo would probably go Sega and start developing exclusive/perhaps multi-platform games for Sony or MS. Atleast then the games would be playable

That could happen if the investors push them to go multi-platform.
I don't understand how Nintendo needs "saving"... *snip*
*ahem* Game sales dropped recently when sales everywhere else on everything else is up. 3DS price drop, etc. etc.
