Ageing Mario blamed for Nintendo's woes


Blaming Nintendo's woes on Mario... like blaming RIM's woes on the fact that everyone's heard of BBM.

Mario is a brand with a pretty good reputation. Nintendo have never been particularly innovative and have had a couple of recent hardware flops, is all. They can either bet big on the next Wii (which looks a bit gimmicky from where I'm standing) or they can go down the Sega route and make Mario games for everything from rival consoles to your mobile phone. I know which choice I'd make, and neither involve getting rid of Mario.
