Wii U EGX Hands-On Impressions | Dealspwn

Dealspwn: There's no hardware battle to win this time around, and Nintendo don't need to explain the Wii U's mechanisms in as much detail as they did the Wii's, so their decision to showcase exceptionally shallow gameplay experiences via Nintendo Land or point towards a Mario experience you can get already is almost unfathomable. Then again, with almost zero marketing, a paucity of games (news dropped today that Rayman Legends is to be pushed back into 2013), and an unnerving knack for shooting themselves in the foot, Nintendo are somehow selling out pre-orders in the US. The Nintendo brand, and indeed that of the Wii, is still something to be reckoned with.

But I'm still in no hurry to get one. (Wii U)

Agreed, i see some people hate Nintendo just cause it's not Microsoft or Sony.

I wonder why there hasn't been any advertisement for the Wii U?
solidt12  +   1089d ago
I know really. Most of the people I know don't even know Nintendo has a new console coming out.

Why advertise for something you can't buy? Most people don't preorder. Wait til November for the TV ads to start rolling in.

It's clear that the author was writing from a European perspective (Eurogamer Expo is in Britain), and I kind of agree with him. Problem is that Nintendo is doing hardly anything to market the Wii U here in Britain/EU compared to the states and Japan, and there's a lot of malaise and confusion on many of the European sites/communities etc. Hardly any adverts, didn't show up to Gamescom (world's biggest expo in Germany) etc.

For the record I HAVE PREORDERED A WII U and am super excited about it because I keep up with gaming news! Bring on Wonderful 101, ZombiU, Rayman, Mario, let's have it! But Nintendo needs to work much harder at making most of us Brits as excited about the Wii U as the rest of the world.
