Wii U: Success or Fail?

Squishy gives her opinion on the survival rate of the Wii U. What are your thoughts? Is this system gonna help bring Nintendo to the forefront of gaming? She thinks not. (Nintendo, Wii U)

Too early to tell. It only has like 6 games. Let's wait and see what developers can really do before we put up these stupid articles yea?
PopRocks359  +   1001d ago
Over twenty games, actually. But yes, it would be better to wait and see.
guitarded77  +   1001d ago
Yes, yes... wait and see. But it's pretty successful in this household. I still want growth of features like Miiverse which has so much potential. I'd also like to see a trophy/achievement system especially since people are sharing screenshots of them beating a game or a time on Miiverse, trophies/achievements would make this better.

What a silly question

Too early to tell indeed. I don't know what's up with people being so quick to put the success/fail tag on products nowadays. Give the $h** time.

I agree. Sadly, we're going to end up with the same tags once the next Xbox/PS4 release.

Last year it was the 3DS. Most of this year, it was the Vita and now it's Wii U's turn. It's ridiculous.

I agree, this type of question is premature to say the least.

The console hasn't even been out for over a month.
Perjoss  +   1001d ago
i agreed, and i used my WiiU browser to do it :)

It will be a success to its fans and a failure to its haters regardless of how many it sells.

I wished the PS3/360 only crowd would try the Wii U.

When I tried mine when it arrived today, it felt weird. For the first 30 mins, I wondered if I made the wrong decision in purchasing it. An hour later and after playing multiple titles with it though, you really do see just how great it is.

It isn't something you can try for 5 mins on an instore demo unit. You need at least an hour with it to fully understand why many think Nintendo is on to something with the gamepad.

Also, I can't believe ZombiU got some bad reviews. It's fantastic! Easily one of the most atmospheric games this gen. It's a real survival horror game.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   1001d ago
It's about the games. As of right now personally the Wii U doesn't have any games I want or any game that I'm eager to play right now. Even if I did enjoy playing with the Wii U what's the point in buying a the system now when it doesn't have any games that I'm extremely excited to get my hands on? I believe a lot of people's perception about the Wii U will change over the next couple of years as the games start rolling out though.

Totally agree with you. As awesome as the gamepad is to me now, if Mario and ZombiU had missed the launch lineup, i wouldn't have bothered with it yet either.

I'll be skipping ME3 and Batman though as there really isn't much point to me buying them seen as I played them on 360/PS3. Still don't understand why they didn't include the full ME Trilogy on Wii U.
rainslacker  +   1000d ago
I tried it (solely PS3 this gen) and love it. Would like to see more games that take advantage of the controller in a meaningful way, but other than that it is a solid system, with a few software quirks that they need to iron out. Still love my PS3 too and play it every day.

Haters are gonna hate, their loss IMO.

Mario Kart will be good but thats it.

too early to tell
B-radical  +   1001d ago
Fail! For it to run decent frame rates it will have to give up som graphics. And when ps4/nextbox come out there graphhics as they do already will just look current gen while ps4/nextbox will have better graphics and better fps. I bet after ps4/nextbox are released we wont be seeing as much 3rd party games on wii u

Althought it will be ahead on sales and make alot of money it will be a success but the console so far is fail

Yes because as we all know graphics and frame rate determine weather or not a system is a failure. I mean look at the Wii and PS2 those were obviously failures. /s
mamotte  +   1001d ago
or you can buy a PC, since graphics is all that matters to you.
B-radical  +   998d ago
I got a pc aha but all i ment was you cant expect people to play something that feels outdated once the new consoles arrive i have all current gen consoles except wii and i notice it appeals to a different type of crowd but to me the wii u is a big eff you to Nintendo fans but they so far seem happy...for now
Yangus  +   1001d ago
I think success.

Its good and nice console.
hennessey86  +   1001d ago
The console only came out in th uk today for gods sake, who approves this rubbish.
josephayal  +   1001d ago
Is the best console
Deku-Johnny  +   1001d ago
Just bought mine today, if first impressions really do matter then it's made a fantastic one on me. The only way it'll be a failure is if people don't give it a chance. Play it even just for an hour and you'll see what I mean.

Far too early to be making decisions like this. Somebody remind me how long it's been out again?

Let's give it a year.

Oh, and the Vita, too, while we're at it.

Pretty please?

I can't comment about it now. It is way too early.
