What the Wii U Needs To be Successful

GenGAME writes: "Nintendo has made their goals for the upcoming Wii U console pretty clear. Gaining more third party support and re-establishing themselves in the “hardcore” gamer market is a priority, but they also wish to retain the more “casual” fanbase that accounted for their massive success in this generation. These things are all end results. The big question is, what are the actions that will bring them about? As simplistic as Nintendo makes their goals sound, they face plenty of obstacles in entering the next generation of consoles. So what does the Wii U need to be successful?"

A wing and a prayer? (j/k)
The Wii U's Software and its online network, is definitely the two most important aspects for the console to have.

I'm not too concerned with the system's hardware (AMD Radeon HD 6xxx series graphic card, power 7 cpu), and there's enough control preferences for the broad mass of potential consumers.

Nintendo licensed Havok's engines for the Wii U, so that in turn, should entice indie developers (Havok's engines are free to any developer developing games for the Wii U).

Pricing is also important, but it's been stated by Nintendo that they wouldn't fumble Wii U's pricing, like they did for their 3DS portable gaming handheld.
