    So will it also be a fair assessment if the next Xbox/PS4 don't set the tills alight? It will we then hear the same "but it doesn't have any games yet!" assessments?

    At this rate, Nintendo is going to have to rename it the Wii Pu!

    If they have no games, that will be a fair assessment.

    If they paint the PS4 bright pink 'but its bright pink' will be a fair assessment.

    You know, because 'Pu' sounds like 'poo', which is shit.

    It would only be fair if they have no games and the graphical power of a calculator

    Despite being a Wii U owner, i cant help but agree that the current financial crisis has absolutely nothing to do with the Wii U selling terribly.

    I honestly think the main reason for the Wii U's current state isnt the lack of games (although that doesnt help), its mainly down to advertising :

    - I have only seen one Wii U advert on the TV in the last few months and it was terrible - it showed the Gamepad and Mario being played. It didnt mention it was a new console at all, as far as Joe Public would be able to make out it just looked like a new control pad for the Wii.

    - I go into Morrisons to get my lunch, they dont even sell Wii U's or any of their games!.

    - Tesco have incorporated the Wii U stuff in with the Wii stuff, all jumbled together in a big mess.

    - Game have a dedicated Wii U section, but its the smallest in the shop. Also, none of the games ever get any reductions or promotions.

    - It doesnt matter where you look : Magazines, bus stops, papers, billboards, etc. There is NO advertising.....anywhere.


    It has, quite easily, been one of the worst console launches i've ever witnessed.

    They have a replaced the Wii U demo unit with the old 360 one in my local game. Maybe nintendo are flogging them on eBay.

    If you dont already have a Wii, you need every controller in the universe to play it.

    Youre the one reacting with sound effects rather than actual points. It got the response it deserved.
  • Deleted user 15 March 2013 10:55:07
    What's the point in actually trying to engage you? Yes, you're right but there's no need to be so gleeful about it.

    You come across as worse than fanboys. Comes across like you have massive insecurities.

    I havent really said anything in this argument thus far other than to disagree with DM about the economic downturn. Dont be so sensitive.

    You guys turn up everytime there's bad financial news to share.

    We get it, you think the console is a waste of space.

    It's actually the first console I've not bought. I've got every other bastard one on launch and enjoyed them, but I've had to stop at this point. Even my cider addled brain can realise it's not a success. At all.

    Its sales increased in a month when absolutely no games were released on it? Must be due to good word of mouth.

    @LeoliansBro Your points kinda hit the mark, but you do over exagerate or twist them to fit your post. The 50 price drop hasn't really screwed anyone over. I think everyone who went out and bought a Wii U knew what they were getting themselves in for. It's been a quite few months and the year in whole isn't going to be the most lively. However, we paid full price so we could jump aboard on day one, knowing it wasn't unlikely to happen. For what it's worth, I still think the console was fairly priced. The price was never an issue. It's the lack of software releases, as you say.

    Then you talk about the games, making it painfully obvious you've played little of them and know little of them, but I think we've tread that ground before with a number of users here. The zombie corridor shooter full of repetition" and the 'extremely thin mini-game place holder' speak for themselves.

    From the sounds of things, you don't want this console anyway. If it 2014 today, the price was 100 less than launch and we had every first party release we've seen or head about thus far, and they'd all recieved critical acclaim, you'd still find a reason to say no.

    Nickthegun ain't insecure, he's just a bitter cynical old fart who played the occasional Nintendo game when younger and has changed tastes, bitter for the fact Nintendo didn't change with him.

    Some people are worse than fanboys in here, not because they're championing other systems over the Wii U, but because you're actually making time in your days to trash the Wii U at every juncture, taking a weird pleasure in doing so, then actually having the cheek to ridicule anybody with reasonable opinion.

    I'll be the first to admit the Wii U is a disappointment, but nowhere near as bad as some people are making out (people who have not actually played the system no less)

    Its the Wii U thread, not the Wii U is awesome thread. Im genuinely disappointed because I fancy a new console and I like nintendo games.

    I think im allowed to talk about that.

    The Wii U is, other than the virtual boy, the *only* nintendo console I have never owned and probably never will.

    Think about that for a minute. 25 years as a loyal customer, pissed away in a series of incredible mis-steps. Im genuinely quite annoyed that they seem intent on committing suicide.

    And, yes, it is because nintendo havent changed with me. They havent changed with anyone, thats the problem. The market has changed and become massively more sophisticated and they havent moved with it. They are just content to sit there and pump out a new mario game every year and call it a day.

    Pokemon Toy Game Thing!

    I do hope this comes to the UK, just looks amazing, and more Nintendo crap for me to collect! Joy!

    BTW, if you do spend 000's on Nintendoland, it's really good! Usually find that if you are a Nintendo nerd, you have friends that are too, so collecting enough controllers together should not be a problem.

    But really, don't listen to me, I spent "some money" the day Double Dash came out as I got 4 Wavebirds with it. Gotta get them all!
  • Deleted user 15 March 2013 11:13:16
    See, for me the WiiU just makes a refreshing change to the years on Xbox.

    I don't feel a sense of entitlement that they should appease me. I either buy something that suits me or I don't.

    The points raised against WiiU have all been salient but it's the approach I'm questioning.
