In the Future, You’ll Be Able To Play Mario on PlayStation, Xbox

Hold up! That’s if and only IF Wii U fails, Baird Equity Research’s Colin Sebastian has suggested.

Sebastian told investors in a note that they remain very much concerned with Wii U’s lack of broad appeal beyond Nintendo’s base.

He added:

Following a somewhat lacklustre launch and holiday selling season, Nintendo will need to bring to market major first-party releases (Zelda) and retain the support of key third-party developers to reduce market share losses.

Do you believe that there’s even a remote possibility that Nintendo will allow its flagship franchises to be released Sony and Microsoft’s machines? Sega was forced to do it, and Atari suffered the same fate. So you never know.

    Nintendo said they would never let their franchises be on other platforms that aren’t their own. if something like SEGA was to happen to them they said that there would be no more nintendo at all and they would just lock their franchises away similar to what disney does with their animated movies. i don’t have the article because it was so long ago, but this was brought up when a interviewer asked nintendo if they would put their games onto apple products.

    Well if they are pushed that far below, then this will certainly be a good idea.

    dude, hes saying third parties as external developers not other platforms.
    ninty will and always have outsourced allot of their main franchises.
    metroid other M for instance.
    zelda and mario wont, they will always stay in house but for other franchises.
    its sad to see ninty fall so far, but it was only a matter of time!
    to be honest im shocked it took this long, they have been refusing progress and holding the industry back since the N64 days!
    ps1 only was so successful because ninty hell bent refused to use up to date technology, so former ninty exclusives, resident evil, FF, MGS, ect, ect, THE games that saved the ps1 and made the ps2, all left ninty.
    if ninty was not so anti technology they would be in a MUCH better position now!
    the wii sold as well as it did with SD graphics, imagine what it would of sold with HD graphics!
    still no where near as good as ps3 or 360, but just barely HD!
    ninty seriously needs to flood the wiiu with both first and third party exclusives if its to survive.
    they cant rely on its specs, they cant rely on their in house studios, they cant rely on ports, the ONLY thing that is going to save the wiiu is if they manage to secure allot of big name exclusives!
    bayonetta 2 was a good start.
    in fact after all the praise michael is hurling onto the wiiu im starting to believe that BG&E2 will be a wiiu exclusive.
