Sadly Nintendo just isn't as popular as Playstation or XBox. How long will Nintendo last? I think that as long as it still has Mario and Zelda, it will still last quite a few years.
You do realize the Wii U is outselling the Xbone currently right?
That new freemium pokemon game on 3DS reeks of micro transactions though. I'm not sure if that is a one off or a start of a longer term strategy.Nintendo is adapting, slowly. The way they're doing mobile shows a commitment to keeping their fanbase happy and they're stockholders in line. They've shown a hatred of micro-transactions and selling-out that even the most avid of haters must admire. I believe they will make the necessary reforms to preserve their status as a developer. I think with a little more focus on getting third parties on board their upcoming consoles, they'll sell well and be here for years to come.
