The Wii U does a poor job distinguishing itself from the Wii

The marketing between the Wii U and its predecessor are difficult to separate, and Ryan makes the case that such a blur could leave the Wii U unnoticed by the market that made the Wii such a hit. (Culture, Wii, Wii U)

Couldn't agree more. I think the Wii U will achieve a much more modest level of success than the Wii, which to Nintendo, will seem like a massive failure.

I'm sure people can see the difference. I've already noticed a buzz following word of mouth...maybe not Wii levels but I don't think anyone is expecting that and who really cares if it does?

That's a good thing though. I can't tell you how many people have asked for "the new Wii" at my store. They don't know or care what it is. They just want it.
