How about going on with this disruptive strategy for Nintendo.

I kind of agree you guys about that Nintendo's technology is its major disadvantage and should enforce the R&D capability also, however it is not the key in my opinion. 'Cause you know when it came back to 2006 Sony and MS are during this technology battle, the release of Wii was powerful and surprising at that time, and the runaway success of Wii proved at this stage of video game market, it is not the speed of technology updating but the direction of innovation really matters. The console Wii mightbe not as powerful and high-efficiency as PlayStation serials and Xbox, while nobody doubts its innovation which focusing on the need of customers and potentials is amazing.

This reminds me at 2000 when Intel released Pentium4 CPU, there was also a fierce technology battle focusing on the CPU Clock Speed. As we all know there's a Moore's Law that the number of transistors that can be placed inexpensively on an integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years, it seemed if the CPU makers follows this rule to innovate and compete mainly in the compute power of IC that would be a great strategy to go with the long-term trend and finally lead to a success. However, even the Moore' Law seemed to be misleading for the afterwards situation turned to be unexpected. The Pentium CPU lose great market share for it promote too much in the CPU Clock Speed while ignore the real needs of customer. The CPU with up to 2G or 3G Clock Speed was unwelcome for their bad performance usually with high power-cost and hot temperature. While looking at the AMD, quickly turned its strategy from the competition on CPU speed to the innovation of computer compatibility and as a result give the Intel giant a strong strike.

As in this case of Nintendo, actually Nintendo had already taken a fantastic strategy to give its competitors a great shock as well as surprises to customers, i think the disruptive strategy should go on for a longer period cause it is either impossible and unnecessary for Nintendo to catch up the other giant by technology so the innovation in the form of technology is outstanding and exactly. Nintendo can deep the strategy, make the console Wii more interesting and easy to play, for instance there are some virtual reality experiencing game with 3D or simulation technology can be assemble to the console. Now that Wii has got a lot of experience in adding this gaming functions, it will be a great advantage for Nintendo to compete in this area.

Both are important

Dear Chenyun,

I think continuing its disruptive strategy and improving its technology are both imporant for Nintendo. The reason is that Nintendo's disruptive innovation can be copied relatively easily by its high end competitors, like Sony and Microsoft. In the end, consumers would choose products with creative functions as well as fancy user experience.
