If you read gaming news with any regularity, you will often hear someone opine that Nintendo should just give up the hardware business and focus on software. No more consoles, just become a third-pary developer and put Mario on everything from Sony and Microsoft's consoles to digital distribution platforms like Steam and GOG to iOS and Android.
Considering Nintendo's a prideful company that's sitting on enough cold, hard cash to keep operating at a loss for a decade plus, that seems exceedingly unlikely but this week's poll is not about what's going to happen but what you think should happen.
So let's hear it lovely and smartly-dressed readers. Should Nintendo forego hardware and focus exclusively on software? Maybe you think it should keep its handheld business but drop the console side. Heck, if you think Nintendo should just pack its bags and leave the video game business altogether, I want to hear it (just don't expect me to invite you over to Christmas dinner).
Vote in the poll then fight it out in the comments. You can even email us your thoughts, opinions and banana bread recipes at SuperPACpodcast@gmail.com. In addition to our weekly EA-bashing, EZK and I will discuss this very topic on next week's podcast so please look forward to it.
