Nintendo, here's my list of demands

Dear Nintendo, 

By now you realize you're in my hands. 



With my purchase being the difference between failure and success, I think you'll find my list of demands to be very reasonable. 

Be warned: Failure to comply will result in a few yens less in your account. We all know you need it (I heard Tokyo is very expensive). 


Fire Reggie and put Reggie in. 
 
CEO's have to have balls.





Ditch the gimmick.

"People like tablets, let's put a tablet in our console" - that's you. See how you sound stupid? 

Ditch it. Lower the prices, bundle the classic controller with the console. Really want a second screen? Let us use a 3DS - make another accessory for it if needed (you guys really like accessories, right?). 

 
Stop with the Maude Flanders bullshit. 

"Binding of Isaac is too controversial, we might receive two letters with complaints". Hell, even Disney isn't this prude anymore. They even have gay characters!



 
Fuck. Region. Lock. 

Everyone with more than two brain cells knows: the only purpose of region lock is price discrimination. Do a universal price policy: I just want to pay you the fair price.       

Bottom line: Screwing your costumer is not good for business. 

While you are on it, make Club Nintendo available everywhere. 





Lower your prices. 

Honestly, you have incredible IP and, comparatively, treat it with lot of respect. But software isn't as valuable as it once was: today we have outstanding free, open source available. Anyone with a computer can make a great game, sometimes with little time and scarce resources. 

Bottom line is: your are competing for people's free time and available money. 
Do you see Steam proposing a better "mobile communication"?


Update your games. 

Because "classic" is not necessarily a compliment.




Stop procrastinating. 

And make an account system. Games that are not tied to hardware have greater value perception. I mean value perception, not price. In other words, that doesn't mean you can charge the same price retail charges. 

And no, you can't charge for online play, don't even ask.

 
Change the console name. 

I warned you it was a bad idea. Now you are confirming it publicly. 
Maybe it's time to listen to me again? 

Sincerely, 
Me.
