Appendix


SWOT Analysis

STRENGTHS! -  First brand to target non-gamers " -  Provides more opportunities for kids " -  Innovative " -  Can be used without a TV. " -  Appeals to nostalgic gamers, non-gamers, families, and children. " -  Bigger advertising budget. "

-  -  -  -  - 

WEAKNESSES! No new technology for the last six years. " Lack of social networking " Lack of video entertainment " Poor graphics" Wii is a single player unit. "

Nintendo appeals to the non-gamers, an audience previously untouched.

OPPORTUNITIES! -  The Wii U will be " Released right before the Holidays. " -  Apps for video " -  Growth in opportunities for the fitness gamer. "

- 

-  -  - 

THREATS!

X box and Play Station are developing opportunities for the non-gamer/ fitness gamer audience. " Smart Glass is a free app that will compete with the Wii and Wii U. " Xbox Kinect does not need a controller which appeals to older audiences. " Social gaming is cheap, easily accessible, and can be upgraded often. ) "
