Mar 6, 2016

Gary Vaynerchuk said if their was one iconic brand he would love to get his hands on, it would be Nintendo.

‘Cause they’re fucking up. The fact that Nintendo is not winning in app gaming is ludicrous. They have the IP. The fact that Kardashian apps and Minecraft and other things are winning, while there isn’t a 15 year old that gives a crap anymore about Mario or Zelda, that was a huge miss. And they got romantic that it was about the console where they made their money. And they didn't deploy against the next attention place and they allowed that romance to kill them.”
Watch the full talk.
