Poll Results: Should Nintendo Exit the Hardware Business?

Last week I asked if Nintendo should exit the hardware business.  571 of you chimed in with an opinion and 56% of you think Nintendo should keep producing consoles while 13% say Nintendo should drop the hardware business, go third-party and focus on outputting software.

Of course, 4% of you (25 people) think Nintendo should pack it in altogether.  Man, a world without Nintendo.  That sounds horrible but as Alfred Pennyworth said, "Some men just want to watch the world burn."

Meanwhile, some voters thought Nintendo would be wise to focus on one or the other.  26% say Nintendo should forget consoles and focus on handhelds but only 1% (7 people) said it should forego the handheld business and concentrate on consoles.

Thanks to everyone for participating!  I should have a brand spanking new poll for you cool cats tomorrow.  In the meantime, here is my favorite comment on the topic courtesy of reader AMCApril:
