Nintendo Combines Portable and Console Gaming Divisions
this week that it has made a significant change to its operations. Nintendo has now combined its console and portablegaming 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.

Nintendo has Mario. No matter how much more powerful Xbox One or PlayStation 4 are over the Wii U, neither console has Nintendo's Italian mascot.

This is not just true of game consoles, but all computing platforms too. For instance, if you need Microsoft Office, Linux would be a poor choice -- ... Source: BetaNews

Koei's Musou series is 14 years old. That's older than GTA 3 and Call of Duty (even if you're so inclined to include Medal of Honor: Allied Assault), so at the very least it's a mark of endurance if not some fundamental, unique quality. Starting with a curiously educational setting in ancient China, the series has diversified by shifting its pseudo-historical locales to Japan and Europe. It's even spread into totally separate IP universes, adding manga/anime ... Source: Eurogamer
