Why You Should Be Cheering For The Wii U’s Success

GamerXchange:
There are obviously fans of each of the console makers, but I tend to look at everyone in the same light. We are all gamer’s, and we should never wish for the failure of something gaming related. New hardware is always a time to get excited, or at least that is what its meant in the past. Lately however, I’ve noticed a lot of so-called “gamer’s” actually hope and wish that the Wii U would fail and fail miserably. Do gamer’s not understand that what happens to the Wii U could have a direct impact on what happens with the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox 720? Gaming has a very delicate ecosystem and the repercussions in the industry and in the gaming community would be very widespread. (Culture, Nintendo, Wii U)

I'm hoping Wii U will succeed so it can shut up the people who keep having unnecesarry hate for Nintendo. If it fails it fails, if it succeeds it succeeds. We'll have to wait and see but i'm looking forward to it.

Nintendo are known to cater towards a different market and one that should stay open. I hope they succeed again and branch out a bit more with new first/second party developers.

I'll no doubt be picking one up before the nextgen is over, just not at launch.

Frankly Nintnedo haven't given any one but Nintendo fanboys reasons to want the WiiU to succeed. The titles we know are coming to it consist manly of games I already have on my 360 or PS3 or will be availble soon on these systems I already own, and none of the exclusives look worth it. Not to mention Nintendo has pretty much confirmed that they will continue practices of there's that are very harmful to the industry like region locking. So until Nintendo can show some exclusives I find interesting, and stop locking me out of playing other games, I have no reason to cheer for there success.

I also like to mention that the main flimsy reason the article gave about cheering for a specific systme could be applied to all consoles

Break the locks.

Well I for one have owned every console at somepoint this generation and started to get a little bored. Because mostly what the HD consoles offered over the Wii were just prettier graphics, that's all!(To me that's all! As I'm not a CoD player or into multiplayer online games) So I'm glad that you have already bought and played AC3, Aliens CM, ZombiU and Darksiders 2. Because those are the games that most interest me in WiiU and as far as I know have never been released to the public yet.

Maybe to you, but its exclusives look worth it to the next man.

About the ports, those are for the people that didn't buy either HD console and are more or less only interested in playing them on the WiiU.
