Purchasing 3rd party content
They're probably afraid they wouldn't make an actual profit on any of it.
paying for ports. Or investing in major new Ips?
Nintendo's console is too weak hardware wise to really man up to that task, you'll either see a huge debuff in graphics, or the game will just be utterly shit all together.
And last of all, why is there marketing and upcoming game news so lacking?
Because Nintendo likes to keep their secrets, and keep their fans guessing what's coming next. Going to be honest the 3DS and WiiU surprised me with how pointless it all sounded. Honestly they're both pretty legit, too bad I don't care for most of the games on either.
I love Nintendo, and I know they can foretell a problem. In those board meetings with execs, this topic had to have come up.. what are they doing?!
Doing what they usually do, testing, developing, more testing, bug fixing, polishing, making sure everything in encrypted and secret and falling asleep very easily at night knowing whatever they do next they'll still get a great amount of sales. Nintendo's got innovation for lack of visuals, honestly that's pretty much the only thing that's really kept them in the game for this long. That and their capitalization on all off the "Gaming Icons' like Mario, and Sonic for instance. Controlling just Mario they did quite well, but both and ruining Sonic as a whole as a smack in the face to Sega? Well by damn, they sure really know how to pick their fights.
