Nintendo age group limited

I think Nintendo's problem is its target age group. Younger target kids lose interest very fast. Its great when they are interested in your product because they get their parents to fork out lots of money for hardware and games. But I think the Wii has peaked long ago, and the Game Boy with 3D is just stupid on a small screen. Not to mention the high price. My wife teaches 4th grade and kids that age already play Xbox360 and Playstation games. Yes, they are adult rated but you know how that goes with parenting these days. Unless Nintendo can relate their products to a much wider audience. They are doomed.

Is "too much screen time" really a problem?
Yes -- smartphone addiction is ruining relationships.
Yes -- but primarily due to parents' failure to regulate kids' use.
Possibly -- long-term effects on health are not yet known.
Not really -- lack of self-discipline and good judgement are the problems.
No -- angst over "screen time" is just the latest overreaction to technology.
No -- what matters is the quality of content, not the time spent viewing it.
