(via GoozerNation) After having finished watching the Nintendo press conference earlier this morning GoozerNation has come up with list of reasons why the Wii U will not reach the success of its predecessor.

*facepalm* Why are there always fail articles before the release of a console...? 3DS, Vita, and now Wii U?

Yi-Long1936d ago

... so when a console is about to be released and there's very little/nothing that excites us about it, games-wise, we will assume it will fail.

Maybe not commercially, but for us as gamers.

The Nintendo-show did absolutely nothing to convince me that I will have to buy their new console.

Sadly, because I do feel it has a lot of potential, when handled/supported right, so I had high hopes.

There are a lot, and it gets old.

Imo Nintendo had the opportunity to shut a lot of mouths today, and they missed it. I am still a fan, but they didn't deliver... and now here comes the backlash.

I don't think that the console is doomed (there is still plenty of time until launch), but Nintendo might want to do some soul searching.

honestly the only thing that worries me about the Wii-U is that in a year or two when the next xbox is about to launch and the next playstation is announced the Wii-U will be fairly new and just like the wii is now, be underpowered compared to competitors. This will again limit multiplat games

@ M_Prime just remember Nintendo is usually on a 5 year schedule and Sony and Microsoft are on a 10 year(ish) cycle.

2012 Nin

2014 Sony & Mic.

2017 Nin

2022 Nin

2024ish Sony & Mic.

@Mr_Mike Yeah, you are right. They did not have to prove anything to "Gamers" or to the "Casuals" they had to prove to the "Core" that Nintnedo was Universal or for them too.

I think a lot of the emphasis was changed because of their currently low stock prices. The investors lost faith in them before E3, so maybe they were trying to prove that this console could Recapture- Wii Magic Lightening.

@Yi-Long
lol... Youre speaking as if E3 2012 was the end of the line or the last opportunity to announce/show games.

I agree that Nintendo's E3 conference was really bad this year, but it's not the end of the world. They will have some other oportunities and I hope they do something.

because this site picks up every single site, including very small ones no one cares about, so it seems like more people think things will fail when in reality it was the same number of people thinking things will fail 5 years ago, just wasn't as noticeable

dark-hollow1936d ago

is there a way to filter "why (insert platform/game) will fail" articles?

Snookies121936d ago

Good idea! They should make that an option on here, just put it as a little checkbox in your profile settings lol!

CNN posted and article that was wondering if the WiiU will breath new life into the Wii. They thought it was an accessory they pulled it once people pointed that this was wrong. Thats one problem right there. I can see how someone who dont know much can think such a thing, imagine how many other people will think this. Similar thing with the 3ds but its not being affected buy it, unless people think for a few bucks extra u get 3d. Oh and enough doom articles, even if its just nintendo buy themselves there are a group of people who will buy it that is pretty large.

Yes its has failure written all over it!

kesvalk1936d ago

it took a while for the "gloom and doom" articles to start appearing...

Zha1tan1936d ago

It failed at E3 because their presentation failed to showcase what their console was capable of.
