Wii U TV campaign launches next week, 60-second ad to air during X Factor

Nintendo promises "fresh and different" ad campaign for Wii U. Tulisa not guaranteed. (Industry, Nintendo, Wii U)

It's super important they get this right. They say they will focus on why it is an important next-gen device.

I'm up for Wii will rock U, using the Queen song during a montage of course.

wii u naysayers finally get the ads they so desperately needed for whatever reason.

They just like to bash anything they can.

They even complain that the pro controller is too light... the thing they are going to hold for long play sessions needs to be heavier...?

Like nintendo makes cheap products... freaking wii remotes break tvs

and they complain that the gamepad is too heavy when it only weighs 1 pound. My iPad weighs 1.5 lbs and I have no problem holding that thing.

Or they complain that the touch screen doesn't support multi-touch, yet the only use for multi-touch seems to be a pinch-zoom. I can't remember any games I've played on my ipad that have relied on multi-touch. Taps, double-taps, swipes, drags, or drawing seem to be the main uses. Uses which the Wii U gamepad's touch screen support just fine.

"freaking wii remotes break tvs"

And after you pull the Wii mote out of the broken TV they still work like new.

That rubber casing for the wii remote that Nintendo offered people for free was not to protect the wii remote from the rest of the world, it was to protect the rest of the world from the wii remote.

That should totally be their marketing catchphrase...

"Whu ... what are you, and why are you in mah living room??
"I am WiiU. You're soul is mine"

Nintendo"

... would be funny... but I don't think it would help it sell...>.<

Thats the best target market to go to, 14-21 year old girl and people with the iq of a table spoon
cleft5  +   955d ago
You do realize that Sony and Microsoft target this audience also.
TheLyonKing  +   955d ago
What has that got to do with anything?
ChickeyCantor  +   954d ago
TheLyonKing,

You sure you're not a fork?
Moncole  +   955d ago
Thats a great way for people to know what the Wii U is, many people watch the show so many people will see the ad.
tigertron  +   955d ago
