Top Three Reason Wii-U Will Suck-Yo

By SoldierX

The Wii U hype machine is in full swing and before you go and spend all of your gold coins on the new system find out why I think it might be a better idea to go and do your gaming at another castle. Here are my top three reasons why the Wii-U will suck-yo.

Is it a portable or is it a console? Should you play on the TV or play on the tablet? What has Nintendo really been telling us from day one? That they don’t know what the Wii-U will become once it’s in the consumer living room. Bad strategy Big N, this double marketing plot is only confusing all those non-savvy goombas in their gigantic market. Soccer Mom is not going to know wether she’s buying a Super Mario iPad or a Wii 2 for the kids and when she talks to the gamer wearing a Best Buy or GameStop t-shirt they’re probably gonna tell her to pick up an Xbox 360 it’s cheaper, has more games and comes with Kinect. Mom’s love Kinect.

I think wii-u will sell like hot cakes initially but won't be constantly sold out like the Wii was.

I don't think the Wii-U will enjoy the same success as the Wii, but I could be wrong.

I predict that all the casuals who enjoy the Wii will not feel the need to upgrade to a new system. Will just dance be any different on the Wii-U to justify the new console? People already have the Wii-fit board etc. The casual players are clearly not graphic whores and the capabilities of the Wii-U are not going to make much of a difference to them since they seem to enjoy the really casual and simplistic art style of the Wii games.

I really just don't see why there is a need to upgrade for them. The new feature is basically catering to the tablet trend, but will it be enough when people could potentially just opt to buy a tablet instead?

Time will tell, but I am simply looking forward to the Nintendo first party software. Can't wait to pick one up. I doubt I will be an early adopter, though.

that really depends on their marketing. Looking back at the wii, it mostly sold via word of mouth and user experience.

Nintendo knows this product is much better than a wii. so how do they tell the existing customers that? It is a long shot that they would even offer some type of trade in program. Keep the games and accessories and just trade in the base unit for $50 off the price of a wii-u.

Or perhaps they can advertise that the wii-u plays all the wii games and accessories..BUT WAIT...there's more! Honestly i dont know what they have in mind. I mean the only ones that really know anything are the ones that really follow gaming trends.

The old folks homes and soccer mom's arent inclined to be on n4g or kotaku every day. No doubt the wii-u is a huge step up from their previous efforts.

Nintendo...(in case you are reading this) you dont need to preach to the choir. You need to preach to everyone else.

"I predict that all the casuals who enjoy the Wii will not feel the need to upgrade to a new system"

Why? Apple seem to hook people like that.
In the latest brochures here in the Netherlands it's promoted as an "HD Nintendo console".

"I really just don't see why there is a need to upgrade for them. "

I don't get why they are so stoked for the iPad and iPhone honestly but look at that sh/t go.

The Wii was opposite in that it picked up momentum, but Wii U will start off hot. It'll be interesting, something that starts on fire has higher expectations, which may lead to disappointment. There's a chance Wii U can flop.

However, based on what we know, this is the "safest" console released by Nintendo since SNES, its pretty much guaranteed to be a hit. Not necessarily the best or most selling, but Nintendo + HD + new innovation for home consoles + BC, should get it to at least 65-70 mil LTD, which is very good. Wii U has a chance to even outsell original NES.

Lets hope it can at least out sell the NES wow. Would be truly sad if it couldn't.

I'm so sick of seeing these half assed "doom" articles. If you're afraid to attach your real name to an article, perhaps you should rethink your article. I have no doubt the Wii-U will be just find this holiday season. Did anyone even read this article before it was approved?

"Is it a potable or a console?" - Don't be an idiot.

Then he moans about the lack of the Wii-mote, which is still supported and claims " Sure the Wii-Mote turned into a flying vibrator at times."
- Don't be an idiot.

And finally "It’s last gen tech." - Don't be an idiot.

The guy uses "retarded" not once, not twice but three times in this article. The only thing I see here matching that description would be this author and the douchebags that approved this flamebait nonsense.

Edit: Don't forget to down-vote these sites right under the "Read Full Story" link. If we can't stop idiots from approving this tripe, at least we can have the quality filter take some of these sites out.

Will suck or not, Nintendo knows how to sell their stuff. Specially new products!

Septic1397d ago (Edited 1397d ago )

I remain optimistic about the Wii U- it could be a brilliant machine. If anyone can tap into the potential the hardware affords, its Nintendo and they won't go about doing it in an obvious way either.

Off-topic- send me the pic in your avatar!

One thing this article sucks.

The Wii U will sell well and its up to the gamers judgement for how the console pans out for them

guitarded771397d ago

No joke... I knew it was a suckfest from the title, but I decided to read it anyway before I criticized. I should have just went with intuition and knew that it sucked without reading it. Lame excuses with no substance to back up their claims. Just a hater hating.

Moonman1397d ago

The console isn't confusing anyone. It's backwards compatible with wii software and controllers. Need I say more? Get ready for tears.

Grenade1397d ago

There's no need to cry over it.
Do you want a hug?

Neonridr1397d ago

This article is written by an idiot. He actually believes that the Wii U is less powerful than the 360 and significantly less powerful than the PS3. First off, the 360 and PS3 are basically on even ground, all the comparisons between games are usually almost identical. Secondly, we know for a fact that the Wii U GPU is significantly more powerful than either of the two current gen systems. The CPU is in question right now, but even with a lower clocked CPU, the fact that it is newer in design means the architecture will be more streamlined. We are already seeing proof of this with launch games at 1080p. All this while extra information is being streamed to the gamepad on top of that. This article is completely a fanboy's view and one that should be taken with a grain of salt.
