Nintendo’s annual report for 2017 has been released and with it comes some interesting information. The Kyoto-based company says that its continuing to work on the development of a new product that improves people’s Quality of Life. As with all Nintendo products it will no doubt be quirky and fun. Here’s what the company had to say about the project:

Our aim is to enable consumers to make daily efforts to improve their QOL in a fun manner by making sleep and fatigue status visible and offering various services based on this information.

    1. Yes. Just like that console no industry cared about untill It was out when this all started. Yes. Just like that little adventure game that had no public or fandom untill now that is called a Legend. This thing that no one seems to care is called innovation, no one knows what it is, so no one cares, until It comes out… It either fails or is a sucess, that’s how business and product innovation works. Get over It, Nintendo will continue to make things no one knows and no one cares about, until they eventually care. Yes, they care about customers or fans, but they care mostly about their hard working creatives, the ones who work behind everything

      1. How bout you get over it? Didn’t mean to insult your family member. Oh wait, Nintendo isn’t your family. So calm down Sally. Video games, an exciting idea for a lot of people when they first came around. Not everyone obviously, but a lot of people were intrigued. How many people are actually excited about a device that watches you sleep? I’m gonna wager a guess and say not many.

    2. To be fair, no one asked for the NES either, and it wound up playing a major role in saving the industry. You can never know how these things will play out until after they’re released.

      1. A valid point for the NES. But let’s be honest, how many people do you know that want a device to monitor their sleep (aside from medical situations, which already have technology to handle that). It is possible that this ends up being a hit it it ever releases, but I’m extremely skeptical about it.

        1. I have a feeling that if this ever does actually make it to market, it’ll be a lot different than the device we first saw 3 years ago. Nintendo seems to be emphasizing sleep and fatigue monitoring, but I suspect that’ll end up being a side feature.

          As always, who knows what the hell their angle is?

          1. If there is more to it than the sleep stuff, then it definitely has more of a chance to succeed. And you are right haha we never know what they’re gonna do until they do it. Nintendo still has the ability to surprise us.

  1. Let’s not forget Nintendo is not just a video game company. That is not how they started out. Good company’s evolve. They make great games, but not every one is into games. They undoublty are appeal to a new audience. Hopefully one that doesn’t critique every move as a bad one. Everyone has ideas on how to spend someone else’s money yet doesn’t just create a product themselves.

  2. Ridley X3 {Jaded Ninty fan. Greatness Awaits at Sony PlayStation 4. Awaiting Greatness on Nintendo Switch; just need cloud storage, add external HDD support, & to eliminate the need for that stupid Nintendo Switch Online App on smartphones.}

    Wii gave them a taste of getting millions & millions of casual money, so they are hoping a quality of life machine will help them win those people back. But hey! If it gets all of the health related & some party related games away from their main systems, I’m not entirely against this.
