Wii U and the Trouble with Triple-A

The Wii U has finally arrived. Now that the first reviews are trickling in, we want to explore what the first crop of games tell us about the Wii U’s potential as a hardcore and mainstream gaming platform. (Culture, Industry, New Super Mario Bros. U, Next-Gen, Nintendo, Wii U, ZombiU)

I do
Believe that review scores from big gaming sites will become less and less relevant. For me personally they are already irrelevant. I feel these gaming sites are in bed with dev studios and are 'bribed' and panhandled in order to receive a good metacritic score.

I remember a story posted here in which it was admitted that the big gaming websites give higher scores because of the 'perks' or something.

In any case, I go to gaming sites for videos and current news, but as far as opinions are concerned I steer clear from IGN, Gamespot, or GT. Though to be fair I've generally agreed most with GT reviews.

Where did talking about reviews come from? This article is about whether or not the Wii U will replicate the Wii's success. I agree with the article that it will not. My anecdotal evidence is that none of the nongamer people I've talked to have heard of the Wii U. Everyone knew about the Wii.

You calling it too early. No one herd of the Wii into it was out about 3 weeks. Only the hardcore picked it up and then word ran quickly. I lived in SF in 2006 and started talking about the Wii day 1. It was a good while before anyone knew what I was talking about, even in December I was getting sideways looks when I told people about it. Then 1 day all of a sudden. BAM the media all blew up with story's about this new Nintendo system, that is sold out everywhere. It hit every news channel and they were looping moms using the Wii mote on TV like 300 times per day.

Actually yeah, I think you're right now that I think about it.
