Nintendo is by far the superior company

based on what? Their sales on the firsts of video game franchises in the 80's?
All they've done is remake titles that were best sellers in the third generation of gaming passing them off as sequels. The biggest reason people like it is for the nostalgia. Stop living in the past. I can appreciate those games having played them myself but I can say without a doubt that Nintendo is not above Microsoft or Sony in the gaming industry of today.
I'm not trying to belittle Nintendo's achievement with Super Mario Bros in THAT TIME but that kind of game won't have a place in the heads nor hearts of future gamers.

Also, 'superior company' is your opinion. Don't make your ignorant nostalgia reflect the company in its entirety today. Nintendo hasn't won any critical awards for any titles in the last ten years.

based on their sales in the present. no company sells even near as many consoles and games as nintendo does. the wii is by far the most bought console in the world. last time i checked intendo had sold more wiis than there were sold xbox 360 AND PS3 combined.

Thanks; that was an interesting fact that I didn't know. (not being sarcastic)

But I wasn't talking about consoles. And though the Wii sold the more consoles than either the xbox360 or the ps3, it isn't a combined figure. Wii sold 98 mil; ps3 sold 75 mil and xbox 77 mil.
And you are wrong again. The most sold console in the world is the Sony Playstation 2. And if we're only taking about consoles, the Playstation one is second on that list. Then comes the Wii. The only reason the Wii sold particularly well is that it was catered to extremely casual gamers with the advent of Wii Fit and Wii Sports which adults, who have absolutely no desire to play hardcore video games, purchased because it was a good price for an interactive workout in their own home.

Look at the top ten games there^
See how many sports or exercise games and mario games are there.

Sony and Microsoft are still trying to push boundaries in the gaming world by taking into consideration the stories they put into games and its replay value while maintaining the capacity to be aesthetically pleasing with the help of the hardware that they put behind their consoles. That can't be said about any Nintendo specific titles.
And their sales, if you look at them, are abysmal for a gaming company that was ONCE a titan. Nintendo needs to stop focusing all their effort in dead characters like Mario because all they are right now is a small niche market within a huge niche market and they're missing out on gaining new faithful customers.
