    I've no idea how sales will go but you'd have to be a fucking idiot to actually think that there won't be good first party software coming out.

    Thats been the same for the last three failures. Misery punctuated by a solitary high point every year.

    Yes, Pikmin 3 is more like 5 years late.

    ed. Oop - more like six.
    No wonder the WiiU has no games. A lengthy prototyping phase for a Nintendo game seems like a waste of time as it'll be the same as Pikmin 1 and 2 with one additional feature, such as a different coloured flower thing.

    Nintendo need to fire a rocket up their own ass, buy some third parties and release some software, yeah wishful thinking, the silly thing is the company is more than capable of doing it. Missing out to EA and there franchises is a big deal, but if the western markets focus on power and nothing else, nintendo should court every japanese developer and go full throttle on getting exclusives out of its own back yard.

    The video game market is simple, really simple, release games and people will buy the system, more shelf space means more choice, etc, etc, etc.

    I finally plucked up the courage to spend 200 on the wii u premium today, so i went on the asda website and saw that the deal only lasted till the 8th :(

    Anyone know where you can get it for the same price?

    Also sorry if its in the wrong place, never used these forums before!

    If they turn it around; then how the fuck will you be able to put the disk in the Wii U; when some actual games come out?

    If not, the price probs will drop later.

    No, they'll have 2 million games at launch, all amazing and will sell 7 billion consoles in the first 2 days. You'll never get one.

    When I bought the PS3 at launch; the doom and gloom surrounding the console was worse than the Wii U, the industry demanded a price cut but Sony refused and it was up to the retailer to react.

    About 6 weeks after launch Argos acted by offering the PS3 with 3 games and an extra controller for 450, the exact same bundle I purchased 6 weeks earlier for almost 600. I took my PS3, extra controller and games to CEX and received 520.

    Fortunately Argos had the spend 100 and receive a 10 voucher on offer at the time; so I did 4 transactions of buying 100 Argos vouchers and accumulated 440. I returned home with a new PS3 and the same games I had before with an extra 110 in my pocket.

    I hope the PS4 has a similar reception to the PS3.

    An anonymous source reports on TVTROPES that the most recent firmware has almost tripled the Wii Us clock speed?

    Totally seems worth reporting.

    It's funny you bring these up when you consider they have more games announced for the than the WiiU does. Despite one not being out for a almost a year and the other not officially existing yet.

    Also, the new xbox has Halo announced for it because, y'know, its probably best to launch with one of its biggest franchises being represented.

    Games announced and launch games etc. are all subject to change when the console/s arrive. I'm going by my own experience with the current generation and I would have been better off waiting especially with the Xbox 360 hardware.

    Edit in reference to Mowgli's post.

    None of this means it was a good idea to buy the WiiU.

    We can speculate about how bad the launch of the PS4 or the Xbox might be. The appalling launch of the WiiU and it's continued failings however are established fact.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Q: Help! My Wii U has set on fire!

    A: This is due to a 200% clock increase on the cpu. This is normal. Please look forward to fire engine coming to put fire out in six to 12 months time.

    We're very excited about the Fire Engine and will be allowing people direct access at our private press showing in 2 months' time, where selected members of the public will also be able to view a short demo of the Fire Engine in action at a distance of 100m through the letterbox of the Fire Station.

    The Wii U launch has been a disaster in terms of popularity and software support. This scenario is common for all early adopters; worse in Nintendo's case as they have a unique ability to piss off third party developers/producers.
