    Lightbulb Forget the NX...this is what Nintendo should do instead!

    They should partner with Sega and release the Dreamcast 2!

    I mean, really, think about it.

    Those two combined have some of the best, but most underutilized, franchises in all of gaming. Nintendo could use their good credit, cash and manufacturing to get great hardware discounts. Meanwhile, Sega could use their old school expertise on building out a proper online system (Dreamcast did it first) and design some kickass hardware!

    With both of them bringing out new titles and remastering some older ones (F-Zero GX, Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg, Shenmue 1 + 2 HD, Yakuza series in HD (before you laugh, the freaking Wii U got this in Japan!!! ), Panzer Dragoon HD, etc.

    Their combined software output would really help the new console not look so barren on shelves, they could share online costs giving them a better effort on that end, Sega could use it's previous relationship with 2K sports (they started it after all) to bring in at least a yearly basketball game for the console which fans would enjoy and use it to help develop a relationship with Rockstar since they apparently dislike Nintendo, and they could share marketing costs since Sega still does a fairly good job on that end!

    I know it's wishful thinking, but hey...it might keep the NX from being crushed by the PS4k-Neo and Xbox One & 1/2!

    Honestly, and this pains me to say it, but Sega is nothing in game market anymore. Sure they have a couple of IPs that sell well, but people still hold them in a high castle mainly because of their nostalgia.

    I'd have been with you maybe 15 years ago. (Damn, I'm old. ) Unfortunately, Sega is nowhere close to being able to support a system on their own. At least with Nintendo they could selectively pick up the occasional exclusive title, bring in Indies and have the cash to support a robust online experience.

    Nope. As much as I'd like to see a Dreamcast 2 SEGA has only recently started to right it's own ship recently. Partnering with Nintendo on such a level with a company in flux like Nintendo would be a horrible move.
    I can only assume that you're joking. Plus giving up it's two most profitable platforms in PC and the PS4 outside of mobile makes no sense whatsoever.
    They only just started to fix their own toxic corporate culture. Throwing their hat in with a company like Nintendo that is possibly at a crossroads coming off it's worst console in it's history before even knowing if they've even sorted out their own culture and philosophy seems like an awful decision to make.

    I disagree. It would hurt SEGA as they are a third party developer and Nintendo has the lowest market share of any hardware company currently. It makes zero sense for them to throw their hat into the ring with Nintendo over Sony or MS, heck even PC.

    Dreamcast 2? I thought we wanted the console to sell better than the Wii U, not less o.O
    Anyhow I'm truthfully not sold on this idea. Just pay for some exclusives instead and try to maintain a good relation towards SEGA instead.

    I like the way you think, jrb363, but a full out merger is probably out of the question. Nintendo securing exclusives from Sega's IPs is not, however. Sega, right now (for some unknown reason) doesn't seem to have the gumption to do...say...another Skies of Arcadia. Nintendo could provide them with millions of little motivations to re-think that position.

    I honestly hope that something along those lines will happen. Because SEGA does have a fair amount of interesting IPs and they're overall also a talented company. I haven't personally been too interested in any of their recently released games, but I hope that'll change sometime in the near future. They've definitively taken a step in the right direction as of late though

    They have done some good things. They need to get Yu Suzuki back in the fold. Maybe Naka, too.

    I can agree with that, I suppose. They've have done better lately, but I'm also hoping they'll take it even a step further. Same goes for Nintendo really.
    But first things first they need to release PSO2 to the west=P

    I still don't get why that hasn't happened. Seems like a no-brainer, to me. I think, overall, Sega is just beginning to get serious about games again. And shake their Sonic/Yakuza/Sonic/Yakuza lather, rinse, repeat mindset. Let's hope they see the light, and keep good things going. They'll really be better off if they do.

    Ya hear me Sega? I'd buy Crazy Taxi 4! I really would!

    Yeah it feels like a no-brainer for sure, but maybe they have their reasons? (Not sure what they'd be though).
    I do hope they keep improving on the path they're heading towards, as that will benefit everyone.
    And hey Crazy Taxi 4 wouldn't be too bad either.

    I want Sega to be aligned with Nintendo exclusively so much, or even be bought over. Nintendo would help them regain their quality control, and hopefully we'd get back into the thick of it with their abandoned IPs instead of just the mascot stuff.

    Hahaha SEGA has been through some bad times I know but hey are actually still a profitable company.
    They are more focused and successful in Japan than in the west. Don't forget they also include Atlus as well.

    And they are a company that's completed its journey from horrible corporate culture to being more self aware of their own failures. Until we actually see the NX and know what it is we can't say the same for Nintendo.

    They are doing a perfectly good job of handling their own quality control these days, they even delayed a Sonic game!
    The only way they'd ever be able to buy SEGA would be if Sammy let them go, Nintendo doesn't have enough money to buy Sammy out entirely they make more money from pachinko than Nintendo does from gaming.
    And honestly until I can see Nintendo is on the right track I wouldn't want them in charge of SEGA and their IP.

    Oh I'm aware it's not as easy as it sounds. And as for handling their own quality control - that remains to be seen, but currently they are not on any kind of winning streak as far as making games worthy of their legacy is concerned.
