    NO.

    Price point. Pipeline. Price point of the Xbone and PS4. Launch games for those two.

    The day Nintendo go software only is the day I go PC exclusively, though I can't deny that on paper their last two (possibly three) consoles have been poor.

    A console market with only Sony and MS though? No thanks.

    Of course but the price point won't mean shit if it doesn't have the games.
    As has been said before, if they release Mario Kart, 3d Mario etc. this year with a price drop well below the onesie/quadruple then it could do really well, it may still be fucked but we won't know till the big games are out.
    They've recalled the Basic package so some changes are clearly coming.

    The cancellation of the basic package (and yes I'll use that word in that context) is almost certainly because it was only in existence to provide a headline price point on launch ('Buy a WiiU from only £xxx!'), and has a lower margin than the proper WiiU. It isn't a step forward, it's a timed strategy playing itself out.

    I'd imagine they've certainly already given it some consideration.

    I'm more confident that this machine will fail hard than with any console in a long time. It's a shadow of what the GC was at this time in it's lifecycle and it wasn't exactly a roaring success. The WiiU has been an absolute train wreck so far. It's been even more poorly supported than the 3DS was initially.

    Even basic stuff like a port of WW isn't due out for some time.

    To outright dismiss that Nintendo might have given some thought to just dumping it is fairly strange.

    I'm sure it's a point that's been discussed internally already, even if only briefly.

    That's the issue isn't it, with the Gamecube and N64 Nintendo still had a lot of the core crowd. They lost a lot of them after the Wii and gambled that they could retain the fickle casual audience. That hasn't worked out at all.

    They certainly lost me with the Wii. The WiiU is the first Nintendo console I've not owned since my parents/I couldn't afford to buy a SNES.

    It's sad but they really have done less than nothing to even remotely entice me back. Pikmin 3 is about the only proper game they've announced and that's a bit meh frankly, that an it's STILL not even out.

    Why go software only when Nintendo games and consoles are aimed at the paedophile gaming market? Putting Nintendo software on PC, Microsoft and Sony consoles would generate a huge growth in paedophilia; this is based on your opinion of course.

    Owning and playing a Nintendo console is like hanging round the Early Learning Centre on your own. You're not actually doing anything wrong but if you do it for hours at a time and tell your friends how great it is people will start to wonder about you.

    All bants mate, just bants.

    It's ecosse's excuse for continuing with the Bomb threads, so that would fit.

    The has escalated from banter. I'd class this as gentle ribbing! Careful LB its a slippery slope.

    Well, I tried to point out what I know about product launches and the basis within that for my assessment of the WiiU, but that didn't work. Then I made a single joke about paedophilia (please ecosse, find another one I've done, I'd be fascinated) and that becomes 'the same joke over and over again'.

    Oh, and ecosse: why does my inference that the Nintendo consoles have games for kids (and it is barely more than that) rub you the wrong way so much? No other WiiU owner seems bothered.

    Kids can never rub him the wrong way.

    I thought he (ecosse) had you, amongst others on ignore anyway?

    It really is kids stuff (for clarity I'm referring to the little fights here) and I don't know if you realise it, but you always come off looking much worse in these little (tiresome) scrapes than anyone ecosse.

    Unless you think ELC if for grown-ups, I don't see how you could come to an alternative conclusion.

    Well, if you look back I did try to have an objective discussion on what Nintendo's thinking would be, and how it had likely evolved. Sorry if that was outrageous.

    Right. No more "bomb" threads, I'm fed up of it all. You don't see equivalent threads for other console makers and Nintendo has been so far away from a bomb for so long is not even funny anymore. Furthermore you're clearly out to get a rise out of it and then position yourself as a victim of bullying. It's pathetic and it stops here and now. If you want to evangelise about Nintendo take it to Nintendo Life or GameFAQs or something.

    That being said, I'm also tired of Nintendo paedophile jokes. Find some new material and mix it up some please, for the sake of my sanity. And everyone else's for that matter.
