    All the lovely forumites who are ruining the Wii-U thread with your incessant, dull, repetitive and banal trolling, knock yourself out here.
    Write down why a console is shit, why you're not interested, why people who like it are stupid etc.
    Type it out, over and over again.
    Have fun!

    I was just about to make one of these

    Would have been called "The Wii U is a *potential* failure because it's rubbish - discuss" though.

    Hang on a second, how is it that the majority of right minded people are relegated to this dingy corner of the Internet, whilst the wii u owners are allowed to carryon believing that their lifestyle choice is valid and normal what's next? A register of people who aren't sex offenders, to avoid hurting the feelings of people who fuck kids
    I'm not saying Wii U owners are all pedophiles, I'm just saying they are no better and in most cases are worse

    I wanted to buy it to replace my Wii, untill they revealed that idiotic and expensive gamepad in the name of innovation.

    A slightly more powerfull machine with improved motion controll would have been my preference.

    A more powerful machine would mean a higher launch price than a small family car.

    If you clicked ignore on each lovely forumite doing these evil pedo acts your precious thread would be all nice and fluffy again. Amirite? Therefore I deduce that this thread is in fact an act of attention seeking.

    Also, how is your relationship with your mother?

    :lol:It is shit though isn't it? Imagine if you'd spent 300 on one! :lol:

    How anyone can possibly justify a machine that can't even go toe to toe with seven year old technology I really don't know.

    Is this because that other thread was locked and you never got your victim fix?

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    It does seem strange that people that find its feature set useful are being told all the time by people that don't (which is fair enough) that they should stop enjoying the thing they're enjoying. Though that's not just a Wii U thing, that's just how the internet works in regards to everything :p

    Can't we just let people enjoy what they want to? Except if that stuff is illegal, obviously.

    -Nintendo have marketed this terribly, it looks almost identical to a Wii and it's named in a way that it can be confused for an add-on. They tripped up similarly with the 3DS, non-forum dwelling nerds thought it was a 3D DS rather than a whole new console.

    -The unique selling point of the machine (game pad) is nice but it's not a paradigm shift like the Wii's remotes were. It's not as instantly gratifying as the Wii either.

    -The power of the console is on par with the still very well supported 360 and PS3, meaning it is directly competing with them. The Wii didn't have this problem as the PS2 had barely any support by the time of its release and the controller made it a unique enough prospect not to be competing with the 360.

    -There are very few major first party and exclusive games for the machine out now or out soon.

    -Price is a major issue, why pay 250+ for a few exclusives when you can buy a 360 or PS3 for half the price and get all the same multi-platform titles and a lot more?

    -The next Xbox and Playstation are just around the corner and are promising to be a noticeable leap in power.

    Dont worry, school starts again on Monday so the Wii U owners will be back hanging around the gates and won't have time to post.

    When Zavvi were selling the premium pack for 225 on ebay it took them 3 days to sell through their allocation of 500 despite it being plastered all over the internet.

    Maybe some people enjoy playing inferior versions of games they completed last year.
    It's like Nintendo turning up late to the party clutching three cans of warm fosters and half a tube of Pringles, only to find Microsoft and Sony about to dig into the heroin and hookers
