A Good Comeback story: Nintendo
For any gamers that have been following Nintendo since the first console version knows that recently they've been in trouble. There recent console system (the nintendo Wii U, launched in 2012) hasn't hit the mark... not even close to it.

It's competitors (Sony and Microsoft) have gained huge momentum, and analyst from all over our doubting Nintendo's survival.

 

But in a recent turn of events, Nintendo has shown that it can do a come back.

So I'm curious....Nintendo is an industry leader (so is Microsoft), it has years of experience (so does Microsoft), and has put a great deal of effort in trying to go a second round with it's rivals (so has Microsoft?)

I can't help but compare since we're talking about similar markets (Nintendo in Video Games and Microsoft in the tablet arena, which is the focus of my post).

So why hasn't Microsoft been able to take a leap forward and show the wolrd that it's here to stay? The recent launch of the Microsoft Surface Pro so far states that it's not directly competiting anymore with tablets, but more with slimmer laptops... but is this a sound game plan?

Personally, I'm not even sure what to think... I mean, if I want a portable laptop, there are a slew of options.... so that being said, those microsoft intent to compete againts it's own business?

Will greatly appreciate any feedback from the community
