Nintendo head flatly denies iOS game development

Anyone still holding out hope that Nintendo will break from its closed model and begin developing games for other mobile platforms needs to give up the dream, because Nintendo says it's not even under consideration...

Lets change the article to " Nintendo head fatly denies Android gaming tablet development"
WTF they're shooting themselves in the foot!
Their is no denying that Nintendo would make huge profits off of iOS, look at when the Final Fantasy games were ported to iOS, they see millions of downloads. Kids will be seeing more and more reasons not to get a Nintendo DS, because of iOS and Windows Phones, they minus well adapt now.

Nintendo will support the development of their games on their OWN hardware until the very end. When they reach the Sega level (failing consoles), I can (almost) gaurantee that we will be seeing Nintendo titles on mobile platforms. Right now, however, they want to keep it closed.
Their games. Their hardware. Which is rare, and I applaude it. It's the way they've always done it.

Well, your right, it is admirable, but it won't stop sales from plummeting.
i.e. See the sales for the 3DS.

millions of sales is still nothing to snuff at. everything they sell they make a profit on, they wont sell it if they dont. They are still a healthy company. Its going to be quite a few years (and probably to the verge of bankruptsy) before nintendo opens development to other people. They also made a bazillion dollars on the Wii and are about to launch the Wii HD which they will probably make another bazillion dollars. They arent going away any time soon.

It's like saying apple won't put itunes or imessage or icloud or ibooks in others os's even if they could make more money from them

Yeah, and you guys have no problem complaining about that. Thanks for proving my point.

What? Your thanking Nintendo for not supporting mobile platforms, and then you say you love the Nintendo port that you have to your Android phone? Confusing...

OO NO! Not two thumb downs from iassclowns.
15. protozeloz (Posts: 5396; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
street fighter is not a nintendo game it belongs to capcom.....

HAHA, you must be new.
Whats so hard for you to understand. You know you would have to pay for every game, wether or not you own it for the system already. So in my case where i have quite the collection of classics, that ive payed for, i can play them on my phone free of any more charges.
EXCUSE ME, for not wanting to bleed money from my rectum.
Did i really have to spell this out to you? O wait... you have the iphone. HAHAHA
That explains it all..... *cough*tool*cough*

We also get a kick out of morons who think they are cool by putting the letter i in front of the feeble insults. You come across as an idiot. See what I did there. I picked an insult that already started with i.

Why the hell would Nintendo make a game for APPLE? when they already have their own systems. damn stupid

I'm morbidly curious to see what the Miz would say about this.

I would believe this,Nintendo are more about pureness of games above all elese,they haven't bowed to trends or pressure over the years in the console market and I would serious doubt they would allow themselves to be chained around the neck like other companies by apple overlords
