Nintendo Combines Portable and Console Gaming Divisions

Nintendo announced this week that it has made a significant change to its operations. Nintendo has now combined its console and portable gaming divisions into one large group. Nintendo hopes that the combination of console and portable gaming divisions will help speed up development.

Nintendo's goal is to speed development by allowing the divisions to share knowledge and technology. I'd wager that the combination the two divisions also means the future consoles and portable systems will have much more interactivity between the two devices.

Nintendo has also announced that will be investing significantly in a new development facility in Kyoto Japan with about $340 million. The new development facility is expected to open before the end of 2013. Nintendo needs to make some changes considering the decline in profits the company's been experiencing over the last several months.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
