Nintendo’s Stock Dropped Fairly Significantly After E3 2015 Digital Event

nintendo_stock_e3_2015

This year’s Nintendo E3 2015 Digital Event wasn’t quite the event that fans were hoping for. If you’ve visited various message boards and social networks you will have seen that Nintendo fans have been very vocal about the event, and rightly so. This event has also had a significant effect on Nintendo’s stock which has dropped fairly significantly since the event was broadcast on Tuesday, June 16th.

Thanks, rafmandx

      1. They made games trying to appeal to fans and failed at doing so. They didn’t cause a world war 3 or something of like that, Chill.

      2. It’s the way you typed in the comment, bro.

        Nintendo fucked up, but don’t forget they still have mobile games to show off that many stock holders are fapping to so expect those stocks to rise back up again.

      3. There was absolutely nothing wrong with how he typed it, and no anger present. It was a FACTUAL statement. This is one of those cases where opinion is, in fact, FACT. They fucked up. And fuck their mobile games, I hope they burn.

      4. Agreed, the lack of fate on WiiU and their focus on mobiles and switching to NX is the real part that pisses alot. If only they would had kept their mouth shut about NX in E3 and Metroid interviews, the hate they are getting wouldnt be so bad, but they basically came across like saying,”Fuck everyone who invested money on WiiU, its not our focus anymore, please understand and buy NX if you want our games” also the fact they have turned their IP´s like Metroid and Zelda to whore with casual audience didnt help either.

      5. Yup everything you said in a nutshell. Nintendo totally screwed wii u owners after hyping it as such an evolution and all that BS. They couldn’t even make ONE game made GREAT use of the gamepad. I’ll probably use the gyro controls in Star Fox for 5 minutes and be tired of it. If it’s like the BS that was metroid in nintendoland, I don’t want it. I DO NOT want to stand up and move in circles aiming at shit. Some people don’t have space for that even for fucks sake.

      6. I know what you mean, i always use Pro controller and just turn display off. Its like they think casuals will buy their stuff if it does something “wierd” they really have their heads deep in asses these days, its like they dont go outside from Nintendo HQ to see what is happening in world and live in a fantasy where everyone likes everything they do even though it would be pointless shit…

We don’t want mobile nintendo game’s wii just want fucking games to play on are mobile 3DS & wii u if nintendo would of allowed the wii u to grow there library of games instead of throwing good games on 3ds we wouldn’t be worry about a new console or them being coming sega cd in 2015

      9. I think they’ll do fine. As I’ve heard recently (I forget the exact source), they are mainly doing it for the people in Japan since mobile gaming is dominating the market and console gaming is slowly going downhill. That is what’s going on in that country, however, and doesn’t reflect on how we’re doing.

        They only throw the games like the Majora’s Mask remake onto 3DS because it’s cheaper and easier to make, and they know they’ll get a profit out of it. The 3DS gets more games than the Wii U does because it’s graphic quality is lower than that of the PS Vita and is therefore easier to develop on compared to the Wii U. Plus, since the Wii U isn’t selling well, they rather make their games on a console that has millions of sales instead of a few million. Though, to be honest, that wouldn’t have happened if they got more people to get on board when it first came out, but now it’s unfortunately doomed, kinda like the GameCube (even though it was the most powerful console of that generation and had good games), because most people didn’t like the few games they had to offer.

        If Super Mario 3D World was a launch title, if the name was drastically different, if it had slightly more power, and if people didn’t start thinking that Nintendo was just for babies, I’d like to see what that world would be like. I thought MK8 and SSB4 would save it, but since they basically have 3DS versions of both it kinda ruined them. The only possible thing that might save it is Zelda U…and if they make that update to transfer your NNID from one Wii U to another like you can do with the 3DS (I might just buy 1 or 2 more Wii U’s if they do that). Until then, we just have to cross our fingers and hope this holiday season does decently enough that the upcoming games won’t get canceled.

        Oh, and if you’re wondering, saying the truth as a Nintendo fangirl really hurt me on the inside. I hope you’re happy Xbots, Sony Cronies, and Pokemon Centers, I sure do hope you’re happy.
        …The names I gave to you guys were just to make me smile again (which I did). No offense to Xbox, Sony, or PC gamers anywhere.

      11. They tried to appeal to the wrong crowd, and if they don’t know their crowd after thirty years, shame on them. They know their crowd though, they just don’t care enough. They care about trying to hook in casuals with cheap easy games to make quick bucks and sucker them. They haven’t catered to the hardcore at all like they said they would with the U. And because of this, their stock fell. That’s how it works. You present trash, nobody will invest. Your stock falls. Fuck are you bringing up world war 3 you dumb ass. Fanboys like you need to eat a fucking dick.

Its sad that casual audience has become so important for Nintendo during Wii years, that they basically are chasing them into mobiles and are turning even Metroid Prime into casual cheap ass game. Nintendo has becomed whore for casuals and its gonna destroy them if they wont stop soon and start to listen and pay attention to their core audience.

        Gamecube is a proof they can appeal for the core Nintendo fans and make enough money to stay relevant.

        See, we buy consoles based on the promises we were given at launched. I bought a Wii U for that same reason. Iwata told us that the Wii was a console for Everyone but the Wii U was a console , and I quote “for U, the hardcore gamer.”

        Were mad because Nintendo just shitted on their fanbase with that E3. We the ones that they were catering to expected a Metroid Prime game, THEY KNOW that that was what we’ve been asking for. We asked for an Animal Crossing game on the Wii U and they gave us a fucking board game. We asked for a proper Paper Mario on the Wii U and they give us a 3DS version. The list goes on.

        They are completely ignoring the future of the Wii U, do you seriously expect people who paid for their consoles based on these false promises to just shrug it off?

        Also, Nintendo isn’t the only one who gets this from fans, they all do, look at MS and how they 180 that whole MS conference when they announce the XBO.

        We can all just hope that Nintendo listens to us and not people like you. People that take everything and can’t tell Nintendo that when they announce shit, we will let them know its shit.

I’m glad I’ve been boycotting them for so long. that practice creates a false demand. and what’s better? 500 people buying it? or 50,000 people buying a single amiibo? Nintendo, fucking idiots, YOU’D MAKE SO MUCH MORE MONEY IF YOU MADE YOUR AMIIBOS ACTUALLY AVAILABLE TO THE FUCKING TARGET AUDIENCE, but I guess the kids who really wanna enjoy the game or get additional stuff in their game better go fuck themselves, scalpers are the only fans who matter, right?

It is very childish, and such actions greatly emphasize how crappy Nintendo fans are, but being vocal in disliking this news I think is justified. Third parties aren’t the only ones giving shortcoming to the Wii U. Nintendo is too, and it is justified for them to receive just as much hate as given to third parties for similar treatment.

        Nintendo can still fix this, but they probably won’t until next year.

        I think they did a great job with presenting the 3DS, but the Wii U essentially had nothing worth while beside the already known games for it… Nothing new to look forward to.

      4. I’ve been saying this ever since they hired the guy. Why the hell would you hire a person who has no prior experience in the video game industry, or even a passion for it at least.

        You know, I pride myself in the ability to see straight through people. Just by looking into their eyes, even if it’s just a picture. He has always rubbed me the wrong way.

        It makes no fucking sense. And like I just said, you can know all the business tactics you want, but if you don’t know shit about the products being sold at this business, or are even willing to look outside of what you think is always right… It really does no good.

        In my opinion, Reggie has shown time and time again he is completely out of touch with the gaming industry. It’s pretty clear to me he has never really cared that much about it. He tries to make it look like he’s cool at times, or that he’s had this long history with gaming, then where the fuck is it? Other then him saying it, you’ve never seen or heard about this history from anyone else. I mean you can look at the people running Sony and Microsoft, you can track their history and work with games before they came to those companies.

        So it has always baffled the shit out of me, as to why they would hire someone like Reggie. A person who had no previous track record with video games of any kind.

        He always shows you how much experience he really lacks with the moronic things he constantly says. I also hate how freaking smug and defensive he gets all the time, when people call Nintendo out on their bullshit, including his.

I may stay in the game a little longer, and possibly just dabble, but I think my time as a gamer may be coming to a close. I just don’t care enough for sony or microsoft, and nintendo has burned me too many times. NX will make or break them. To make them, they need to make the ultimate gaming machine. They need to reach into that bank that WE filled with OUR money and give some back and give us a system we truly deserve. Something all gaming fans are in awe of. Not some stupid half-assed gamepad that they themselves can’t find a great use for.

      3. As a lifetime gamer, I’d tell anyone to stay away from video games period, if they really asked about them. Lol, in all honesty you can do so many other productive things with your time. With the amount of time some people spend on gaming, you could become god tier at some skill that is much more useful than playing games.

        It’s a very expensive habit also, in most cases it’s cheaper to be drug addict. Especially when you own multiple consoles, and play games on a PC. I’m just have OCD, and a severe case of insomnia, to have the extra time and energy to spare.

        That really squeezes my grapes, also. Nintendo has all this money stored away, but in the past years they definitely have not been investing that into their systems anymore. Which can be insulting at times, when Microsoft is barely making money from the Xbox division and Sony has had to make massive cut backs throughout their entire company, but they still offer better hardware overall than Nintendo has for a while now.

        I guess they forgot the saying “You have to spend money to make money.”

        Super Smash Bros being released on the 3DS also fucked the Wii U. It would be a massive big hitter for the Wii U if it was exclusive. Why the fuck do I want to play a fighting game on a handheld? Also, the 3DS SSB development imposed so many problems that the Wii U version was delayed and also some characters were trimmed because of lack of 3DS hardware horsepower. These are just one or two thoughs on how Nintendo misconducted its decisions this generation.

Not if it makes them stop making games. And thank you SOOOO much for saying that about the 3ds smash. Fuck that trash. It was useless the day the u version arrived. Exactly. Who the FUCK plays fighting games on handheld? Shit there is NO game I prefer on handheld. If they could just make handheld games on console, I would NEVER buy a handheld. I have a 42 inch tv in my room and a 70 inch downstairs, why would I want a cramped ass screen that I always get neckpains from, and cramped buttons and controls? I will ALWAYS prefer a bigger prettier screen and comfortable controller for ANY game. Handheld was invented back in the late 80s or so (well early if you count game & watch and such) for road trips and toilet trips. Who are these fans that turned handheld into a serious thing? Handheld convenience? I drive a car, can’t play while driving. Wii U is small enough I take it with me if I wanna play somewhere. Shit I play it at work. Lol I’m sure my anti handheld rant isn’t the most popular opinion but that’s how I feel. There’s literally one thing that handheld has and that’s on the go, which for people with cars doesn’t matter. Riding a bus, ok. If you are a teen and your parents drive you, ok. But if you drive that one thing that makes it useful is thrown out the window. Anyway rant complete lol. Just happy to finally see someone online agree that smash or any fighting game on a handheld is a joke.

While I need to confess that I acknowledge that the 3DS has a number of timeless classics in its library (like FE: Awakening, MK7 and Bravely Default), the handheld market this generation attracted too much of Nintendo’s efforts and attention to itself, which sadly ended up making the Wii U a overlooked piece of hardware.

        In the end of the day, I feel outraged for being a Wii U day-one supporter. Nintendo has been disrespecting a lot its core of fans.

I would like to play Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, but that’s it. And both games should have been on the Wii U. I have never really cared about handheld except when I was younger and on road trips with my family. Some of the games were nice, but any handheld game can be made even better on a main console.

        Yes, makes perfect sense. Any home console experience is superior on a home console than on a handheld. But the games I mentioned (you also reminded me of ALBW and Luigi’s Mansion, by the way) made the 3DS a great platform nevertheless.

        In my opinion, Nintendo’s biggest problem was the lack of balance between their two platforms. That hampered the Wii U market penetrance a lot.

    They do that, then their stocks will slowly climb back up, I don’t see it going quickly back up. Also, notice as soon as they become profitable again they fuck up and now they’re back to square one.

They do this kind of stuff all the time with things like Mario 3D Land -> 3D World -> Captain Toad, Four Swords -> Four Swords Adventures, and even Pokemon Rumble U was a test for amiibo. They test ideas in a small environment before elaborating. I wouldn’t be surprised if Nintendo uses this game as a template for its future Metroid title. Especially for a co-op or multiplayer mode. I wouldn’t be surprised since Nintendo seems to focusing on multiplayer quite a bit lately.

        If there’s anything to put the blame on here it’s the communication between NOA and NOE with NCL about what the western audience wants. I guarantee you NCL wasn’t aware of the demand for Metroid until the Tropical Freeze incident, just like how they were unaware we wanted Earthbound on VC until the miiverse posts, or how we wanted a new Star Fox until after the outcry when Star Fox 64 3D was announced. NCL has always been very Japanese audience focused and they really need to broaden their senses.

        I guarantee you they are probably making a new proper Metroid title as we speak. They started a new Star Fox after 3D’s reveal and they most likely started Metroid after the Tropical Freeze outcry. They just don’t have enough to show yet. It’s probably not a Prime game either based upon what Tanabe said but that’s fine. I personally would love to see a survival horror Metroid along the lines of Alien Isolation. Throw in a multiplayer mode similar to Federation Force and we get one awesome game!

    1. Its a good thing. Nintendo only listens to money. To teach them a lesson, you have to make their stock fall and make them lose money to tell them to get their act together.

  12. I’m SO glad I didn’t invest in Nintendo. My original plan was to invest a week before E3 and after there awesome Direct, I would cash out after it had risen.

    Had I done that, I would have lost all my money. NOW, I can invest knowing the stock will certainly rise again at some point. (Unless Nintendo lights the suicid bomb again).

  13. This is such a stupid graph. It was only a drop of 50 cents, the graph is just blown up to make it look like it’s was more significant than it actually is. This is a sad attempt at a news’ story. Yeah Nintendo had a crap E3, just pile it on when stupid uninformed stories like this. Stupid.

  14. Last year Nintendo’s stock was between 12-13 bucks and now it’s in the 20 buck range, wow what a huge drop. Sony’s stock dropped the day of their presentation too but we don’t see a story on it. A Nintendo site that runs smear stories against Nintendo, pathetic. This site only reposts stories from other sites, some news site.

  15. Ok, seriously. What the heck everyone ?

    I understand how much a lot of us have been disappointed but come on. I know that we’ve been expecting “WHOA !” things but we’ve set the expectation bar way too hard. We have bigger things coming up next year. GIVE THEM A CHANCE.
    So yeah, you didn’t get your Metroid game you wanted so bad. But the other guys are thinking about granting your wishes. And facking SAMUS IS IN THE GAME.
    Yeah we got “Super Animario Crossing Party”. But guess what ? I don’t care, I’m happy to have something else then the usual Mario Parties. It’s with Animal Crossing characters which have things that are different from MPs !

    You’re all going like “Haha ! They deserved it !” or “They should let other people control them.” “Just do mobile games” “I could run Nintendo better then these people” (< I really want you to see run this company. It's not as easy as you think. Good luck meeting up fans expectations)
    That childish mentality is what will may cost Nintendo in the future and you better not come back to cry that your games you wanted for so long are not going to be made because of that.

    You may see me as a salty fanboy, I don't give a fack. But what all I can see are SPOILED BRATS who are crying for not getting what you wanted. YOU WILL GET YOUR GAMES LATER CALM THE F DOWN. THEY ARE DOING THEIR BEST TO BRING OUR GAMES. MAYBE THEY CAN'T FOR X REASONS OR MAYBE THEY ARE WORKING ON THEM FOR THE NX.

    And the cherry on the top is before everyone would go "Put X in 3DS ! Who cares about WiiU ?!" and now "HOW DARE THEY MAKE 3DS GAMES WHEN WE WANTED WIIU GAMES !". Really guys ?

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to save money for MnL : Paper Jam Bros.

        But if you don’t want to listen because of my username, you decide :p
        I stand my ground and think we are all just overreacting and not thinking of what they actually plans for.

      1. Who else would so emphatically defend Nintendo’s bullshit response to a starving Metroid Fanbase by releasing the Metroid Prime Trilogy on the eShop, get us all excited the a New Prime game is coming, and give us what should have been NintendoLand DLC?

        I hope you’re not working in the Marketing department, because I’d really start getting my resume refreshed.

    1. Maybe have you thought that these “mini games” are things to wait for the NX ? They did mention the NX, they said that they are working on it and will talk about it in the next E3 when it’s ready.
      And as for the mobile games, same things, it’ll be for next E3.

  16. Didn’t know there were so many experts on how a video game company should be run.

    What frustrated me is that they have Devil’s Third and Fatal Frame basically ready to go (maybe some localization pending) and they refused to give either any publicity. Street dates on these (along with Xenoblade, which we did get) would have satisfied me on the “mature” games front. Instead we get a focus on the inscrutable Shin Megami x Fire Emblem. It’s like they have no feel at all for Western tastes.

    The thing that could extend the life of the Wii U would be to release some sort of dongle you attach to the gamepad that allows you to play 3DS games on the gamepad and TV. No 3D required really. Making the 3DS library avalable to the Wii U could give it the legs it needs to thrive until the NX is ready to go. Frankly they would have benefitted from having something like this on the market over a year ago.

    One thing I did like was the Mario focus that brought out the history of the company nicely. I wasn’t interseted in Mario Maker until they framed it as an effort to turn their level designer over to the fans. Definately got a Miyamoto swan song vibe from that.

    Another positive for me was the focus on a female design voice when giving the Yoshi overview. It’s an important development for a male dominated traditional Japanese company. Maybe not a popular move among the crybabies who prefer murder simulators and despise anything remotely cute, but I think N is smart to serve the female gamer.

    It does feel like they are holding a AAA Metroid until the next console.

    1. Same there, I like the little history behind the games (especially Star Fox’s one). :)

      And yeah, you got a pretty good idea, maybe you should be the one running Nintendo x3 (The 3DS/WiiU connection thing~)

  17. Aw that sucks! I know they put on a poor presentation, but did they think that perhaps it would affect their stocks like this? Big screw up. Why not dump a ton of money on making a really good presentation video, with all the bells and whistles? I know that doesn’t make up for the lack of exciting announcements but a good quality video can really help entertainment wise.

  18. Such a sad generation when most of the more powerful and iconic Japanese publishers are becoming jokes. Nintendo disappointing its fans with that horrid event, Sega focusing on the likes of mobile trash lovers instead of their true fans, Konami following Sega’s footsteps, and Crapcom becoming the greedy primitive apes they are. At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if the American publishers like Activision or Microsoft begin to rule the gaming market in the future when most of the other Japanese developers fall after these ex-gaming giants suffer more.

    And now I’m slowly becoming a Quadraxamus clone….

    1. I agree, its sad, what has happened to Sega really hurts. I had a little bit fate after they published games from Platinum, localized Yakuza games and made Colours/Generations that they may are making their comeback to be great again, only to be crushed by with no plans of PSO2 here in west and all the focus being on shitty Boom and mobile games.

      I dont want Nintendo end up like Sega, i really wish for them sakes they are gonna listen what their fans want and recover, only time will tell will they fix their shit but the problem is that the time is literally running out for them.

      What i hate most about Japanese giants is that they have this stupid mindset that mobiles save them and magically turn them for their former glories. But yeah, casual market has always been the low point in gaming and the fight over that audience will destroy these companies, because with casuals you may get some money here and there but never you can get loyalty out of them.

  19. This occasion calls for a parody of a shocking segment from Modern Warfare 2:

    Ghost (Quadraxis): Price! Do you copy?! Nintendo’s stocks are falling! I repeat, Nintendo’s stocks are falling!

    Price (Me): …Good. *Nintendo self-destructs*

    Ghost (Quadraxis NX): What?! No! Wait! PRICE! NOOO!…We have a nuclear gaming fallout! Nintendo is falling! NINTENDO IS FALLING! CODE BLACK!! CODE BLACK!!!!!

    On a serious note, this is what they deserve for their continuing fuck ups and ignorance on fans needs. This E3 epic failure fallout is only the beginning.

  20. They cant say they didn’t see this coming. I bet their hearts were nervously pounding throughout the conference. Shitty E3 with shitty reveals lead to shitty stocks. Ride the Wii U wave instead of selling out early and losing fans. I still like Wii U but if you’re going to ditch us, I’m not buying the NX until they know what the fuck they’re doing this time. you have a crowd of people right here and you know what we want, yet you still try to cater to casual play. good luck with that.
