Nintendo Growing Pains

There is an interesting article about Nintendo’s decreased market share at Contra Costa Times. The article notes the companies profitability but touches on potential reasons for Nintendo’s waning performance.

Basic premise from the article: “Nintendo lacked titles for older players early in the life of the GameCube. By the time mature games such as ‘Resident Evil 4’ and ‘Metroid Prime’ were released for GameCube, the kiddie image was cemented in people’s minds.”

Would you agree?
