Nintendo Wii U to catch people off guard

Marketwatch.com:''The new Nintendo Wii U is going to catch a lot of people off guard in much the same way that the original Wii became a surprise best-seller. This has a lot to do with the company’s unique perspective and inventiveness that borders on the artistic.'' (Industry, Next-Gen, Wii U)

Yes I agree. I have over 600 shares of Nintendo (NTDOY) now. I bought super low at 15.01 per share. Forbes and all the analyst say Nintendo is a bad bet and all Doom, the stock keeps on dropping because the official profit earnings reports are not in yet. I'm telling you people if you don't buy a few shares now you will regret it. I also made a mint on NIN stock right before the original Wii came out. Bought a $12 per share. Remember back then? Everyone was saying Wii would fail and NIN would be bought my MS or go 3rd party.

Last of all here is how I know WiiU is a hit. I have a 5 year old son, about 3 weeks ago after I got him from school he started asking me for a WiiU. I never told him what it was, but his WHOLE school knows about it and going crazy. If the kids want it, the parents buy it.

thats the problem right there,, as long as the kids are crazy about it,, the core adult gamers will stay away because of the percieved stigma attached to it as being a kids toy,, thats the primary reason i bought Far Cry 3 for my ps3 instead of a Wii U (both were released on Friday in UK)

Adults don't stay away from Call of Duty, and that's the biggest 'Kids toy' in gaming, so I don't think your point carries much weight. There may be a small class of very young adults who feel the need to 'get away from childish Mario', but those people are relatively small in number. The Wii U just like other consoles, is a child's toy and an adult's hobby machine.

Nothing wrong with you being satisfied with what you've got. But if your reasoning is 'Because of the stigma attached to it' then you probably need to look at the bigger picture, and realize that pretty much only the 17-25 crowd, desperate to show that they are no longer kids feel that way. They are nowhere near indivatice of the whole.

then best of luck to you! Lets hope the casual bite like last time.

That just means the specs really mean nothing since soccer moms wouldn't care in the first place.

I remember when nintendo was $8 a share 6 months back.

I hope you profit form it.

I am pesronally waiting for ps4 as a gamer.

I would have waited to get shares lower. They're still coming off the high of the Wii, even if they're almost off it. It will level off at about $10, I'd guess.
neogeo  +   885d ago
Yes I was thinking about that but then I got scared. I waited too long for Amazon stock and it went sky high so fast, I figure to play it safe.
SilentNegotiator  +   884d ago
Sure, but they'll pop up to $25 in a few years, EASY. You don't want to miss out, but you don't want to rush in, either....thin profits won't do much good when the year ends, assuming you're in the US (your profile says NA, anyway).

Its already a disappointment in hardware and launch games, it will fail in comparison to the Wii.

man what is up with nintendo now a days??? gamecube days were awesome, they need to bring back the gamecube days management and fire all the new wii-wiiu management.

HAHA
"remember the days we weren't earning as much money? let's fire everyone and go back to that!"

History repeats itself, it will prove people wrong. Nintendo wouldn't be around this long and outlasted the likes of Atari and sega without people wanting its products.
