Miyamoto Says Nintendo Is Focused On Core Rather Than Casual Gaming Market Now

Mario creator and game designer Shigeru Miyamoto has stated that Nintendo is no longer concerned with the casual gaming market. In a recent feature with Edge Magazine, Miyamoto explained Nintendo’s current stance was its particular need to focus on the dedicated core fan-base. Since the shift to mobile gaming, the casual and “passive” market – that Nintendo profited from in the days of the Wii and DS generation – is no longer there. Here’s what Miyamoto said on the matter:

“[These are] the sort of people who, for example, might want to watch a movie. They might want to go to Disneyland. Their attitude is, ‘okay, I am the customer. You are supposed to entertain me.’ It’s kind of a passive attitude they’re taking, and to me it’s kind of a pathetic thing. They do not know how interesting it is if you move one step further and try to challenge yourself [with more advanced games].

“In the days of DS and Wii, Nintendo tried its best to expand the gaming population. Fortunately, because of the spread of smart devices, people take games for granted now. It’s a good thing for us, because we do not have to worry about making games something that are relevant to general people’s daily lives.”

Though Nintendo has yet to come fully forward with their Quality of Life (QOL) initiative, bar from the knowledge it will focus on fun, it appears the company is stepping in the correct direction. Let us know your thoughts on Miyamoto’s statement in the comment section below.

      1. Me too :/ oh well! I think his comment is interesting. I think he basically said they re done trying to cater to all gamers needs and are going to focus on their core group of gamers.

      2. Raves hardly exist in south florida anymore it sucks. Going to Electric Daisy Carnival in orlando in november though which I highly recommend, electronic music and carnival rides and $10 for UNLIMITED water refills. EDC also goes to New York, Vegas, and maybe a few other spots. Vegas passed, this year already, I think that’s the biggest.

    2. ….And u thought I wrote a lot. I have these stalkers online who follow my posts and write whole books about me. True story, and pretty sad predicament….uh, for the stalkers…I’ll list them for you “neutral” readers to see. Oh, I won’t name them by name, my GREATNESS doesn’t allow peasants to be acknowledged by their little appropriate “username” I NEVER place anyone above or on the same level, I’m in a league of my own(cliche as that may be, it’s the TRUTH)

      Also: it’s pretty sad, these “guys” are in their mid thirties and one in his forties, and they have nothing better to do than to criticize a younger(can’t say more) successful person. Well, I guess goes to show that’s where DRUGS will lead you…continuing….

      Rated on their idiocy level 1-10, 10 is the most stoopid he/she can get….

      -That Queer: there is only one queer who roams these pages, so if you frequent the site daily, you know who it is. IT isn’t that much of a bother, but it is the forty year old, acts like its intelligent, but it’s only an act. 
      Idiocy: 7.5

      -That (W)itch, username starts with an M: this depressed whale of a female reads and follows all my posts and replies only with negativity, like, you’re depressed and you can’t be positive online? Well, like many females, she serves no purpose in life. Don’t know her age, but I would, with confidence, guess over thirty.
      Idiocy: 8.0

      That army moron: this one doesn’t make sense. This moron not only attacks my greatness, but somehow is also against That Queer. Mind boggling, right? That queer is seen as the good guy, and I’m the bad guy(opinions vary by ones own assessment) so how could you hate both??? Whatever, this guy wrote books about me, maybe he should contact RL Stine(if he/she is still alive) anyways, this guy is over thirty.
      Idiocy: 9.0

      The latest addition:
      Drug boy(Lord Idiocy): this reject is in love with narcotics. Every chance this retard junkie gets, he’s the first to open his mouth if drugs is the conversation topic. Like if that somehow elevates(yea 420, dog, bruh) a persons status. Only LOSERS care about drugs and their effects, dissected to the very last compound. Though it is sad, as I stated, morons make up the majority of the world, mindless followers. Oh, well..,heres to you Lord Dumbass…Spliff, Pot, Weed, L, Endo, Indica, Cronic, Kush, Cat Piss, Trees, Green, Bionic, blunt, joint, Swisha, Chocolate, and so on….he’s also over thirty, and has written books about me.

      There you have it, my neutrals, stand clear of these sick-in-the-head individuals. If I didn’t point them out for who they are, you would’ve sworn they were children, which makes things more humiliating for them.

        Your a decade older than me but i feel like im talking to like a 24 year old. When im 30 ill look 22……. I don’t age. My brain ages but my appearance doesn’t as much. I realized this even more in late high school when i moved schols and i friend told me “when you said to me you were 18 i thought you were joking, i thought you were 14 and a freshmen. It sorta sucks because it kinda effects who i actually am. looking younger than what you are can maje you treated like your younger even if people know how old you are.

        I probably will never be boring or laid back or anything, I am different from a lot of people. Nobody likes adventure and stuff. I want to like explore, travel, discover, find deep meaning in things. I think about deep things and like atmospheric things to help so as well. Everybody else is more lame, like just want to hangout and do generic things and have stupid boring personalities.

      20. Nice Kurt Angle style bets lol. The one and only time I ever cheated on a girl who I was with for a week, I ended up drinking with my friends, her, and her best friend. We got southern comfort which the two girls warned me was strong. My chick ended up leaving to go to sleep, and my friend and I who I actually get to see for the first time in six years tomorrow took the bottle back and forth chugging cause it had no burn and tasted like cough syrup more than liquor. I though I passed out. I find out the next night that I had actually made out with the best friend of my ex, and the best friend is the one who actually liked me but I asked the wrong one out. So yea apparently we made out at the pool and then I fell and knocked her in the bushes according to my friends who watched and didn’t stop the making out, and kept fusing her name and the others name cause they were similar so I guess I didn’t even know who she was lol. And I apparently passed out ass up head in pillow in my friends bed. Point of the whole story is when I found out what I did when they told me, I felt so bad I cut my hair off and shaved it totally bald (man I looked bad). Ever since then I don’t really get drunk too much cause blackout drunk is scary, doing things you don’t know you’re doing and it made me go against my morals. Lol don’t know why I’m posting my life stories for all to see but whatevs. Glad you look good with it, I don’t have the head shape for it lol. That was back in february of 06.

At your age it’s harder but you’ll be so thankful in a few years. And now I’ve been through a lot the last ten years, my parents moved up to PA where I’m visiting now, ten years ago and I stayed in florida. Been tough ever since, but it made me who I am. I went through 3 apartments, first was a total drug fest, second was insane drinking parties like all the time til we got kicked out, I then ended up homess on and off for about a year, then built myself up, got with my ex, had an apartment with her, got fucked over by her, and built myself up again. Between the drugs and drinking and homelessness I grew up a ton and learned a ton and broke out of my shell cause I used to be real shy. I learned to just be me and not let the world shape me and how to be responsible. Now I live with longtime friends, one who I’ve been friends with about 20 years and his mom got him a 4 bedroom house that him, my other friend and I are paying off. The last three years I worked all the time and didn’t go out much but saved a bunch of money and bought myself a car last november straight cash for a 2012 Jetta. So yea if you ever feel fucked in life, remember it’s never too late to make something of yourself or get what you want in life is the moral of that I guess lol.

The other day i probably said it 5 time in a race lmao and over 20 times overall. I see you use fast characters, it’s probably the best strategy in this game. Once your in 1st in this game i feel like you safe since 2nd place always gets like a banana. With a fast character you would get very far ahead. I hate heavy characters though because there control sucks so i don’t use them.

And yea I love my speed, although my acceleration is trash so I gotta hope I don’t get four straight coin items and left defenseless otherwise it can get nasty. I started off with Ludwig and then moved to Morton Jr. I always mained Yoshi in the original two games, DD I used paratroopa and Diddy, Wii I used my lightweight Mii, then in 7 is when I started using heavy. Actually I used King Koopa too almost as much as Yoshi, especially in battle so I could ram people and take a balloon. Especially right after the count down on blockfort and double decker if the other player was either spun out or dumb enough to charge at me lol. I love 64 Smash, still has the best throws by far among other things. And yes indeed things felt way more magical as a kid. I miss it lol.

And don’t worry about making fun of hippies, I used to like them but today being a hippie is just another trend I realized and most are full of shit and just say Namaste and thank the universe for the light of the holy sun and dumb shit and take psychedelics cause that’s what hippies are “supposed to do” and a lot are trustafarians. Sorry I’m responding out of order but it won’t let me reply to your last comment

      44. I totally agree with that. Hippies just try to be hippes, but not because it’s who they are. It’s totally a trend. It’s like they WANT people to notice they’re hippies when there just trending fags who want to fit in with a group. Stupid fake losers.

It’s starting to come around, but the core gamers felt betrayed by the Wii, which is the worst console I’ve ever owned. Not saying it didn’t have some good games, but it was showered with dog crap casual game left and right that no gamer wanted. You think the casuals have any loyalty to Nintendo? Where are they? Why isn’t Nintendo successful with the Wii U since it has a bunch of casual games? Oh that’s right, they left for the next big thing in mobile gaming. Candy Crush and all that nonsense. Yeah, those people were going to keep Nintendo afloat.

    Hopefully this means their next console will be more powerful and a real competitor against the Sony and Microsoft console. The casual catering worked for the Wii, but thank god for iPhone apps, because they really stole a lot of Nintendo’s customers. Had the Wii U been a success, I fear Nintendo would have stuck to pleasing the casual market.

Casuals/hipsters/”trend & fad” consumers just go with whatever is “hot” at the moment and most convenient, and phones playing games is a lot more convenient and popular right now than $300-$400 boxes you hook up in your living room. They mostly need to focus on the dedicated gamers who have no problem spending hundreds of dollars on a console and hundreds of dollars on games because ultimately they’re gonna be long-time customers and steady revenue if you treat them right while being actively invested in the advancement and future of video games as opposed to only wanting to play whatever game is trending that month.

But because I’ve stuck with Nintendo all these years, and now all the third parties are shunning the system, I can’t. No Kingdom Hearts 3, Assassins Creed Unity or Rogue, The Witcher 3, Dragon Age Inquisition, No Mans Sky, Shadow of Mordor, Legend of Korra, Valiant Hearts, Scalebound, the list goes on and on.

One that like to play games a good amount, but has other interests or obligations in life and wants to play in short or medium bursts (kind of games you could play for minutes or hours and get as much enjoyment out of it). Ones that are around for the long haul of video games as a hobby, which are the same kind of people who use to fill the arcade.

        But core gamer signifies someone who plays video games all the time. Most of the industry has been a real turn off the last decade cause they have really turned there backs on this large demographic, who is now buying stuff like Shovel Knight not cause of the nostalgia graphics but cause its something that fits well.
