Talking Point: The Wii U eShop Needs Patience

With each passing Nintendo Download update that provides 3DS or DSi downloads but no new Wii U content, enquiries about why that's the case often surface. News this week of delays to Toki Tori 2 and Cloudberry Kingdom don't exactly help matters, adding to an impression that content for the Wii U eShop is slow out of the gate. On the surface this frustration at a perceived lack of movement on the Wii U eShop, apart from a much anticipated Rayman Legends demo, is understandable. And yet, when compared to the initial launch and level of content on the 3DS eShop, the new home console equivalent is in a far stronger position.

The indie titles available in the eShop are all fantastic and all worth a download. I got Trine 2 and Nano Assault Neo and both are fantastic games and worth their money.

Not to mention there are full retail games available for digital downloads.

All that is missing in my mind are some demos so that I can try other games to see if they are worth my money.

All in all, It's a huge improvement over the Wii shop, and will only get better as more titles are added.

i believe are coming soon. What i would like them to do is unify the eshop and the points. Meaning that if I have x amount of points that i can use in the eshop via the 3ds, i should be able to use them in the eshop via the wii-u as well.

seeing as it would be the same profile used to sign in to either eshop. it just makes it more convenient unlike when i had points on the wii and points on the dsi and they werent interchangeable.

It needs to be a bit more refined.. I would like notifications of new demos that are uploaded or titles added for download. Also it needs a sort function so you can sort by Free Apps and or demos... Not having the ability to filter by demos is annoying.. It wasnt until recently they put the Fifa demo on the front page of the eshop.

I did like the Nintendo Channel on the Wii where it showed new stuff coming out and releases on the way , I feel like the Eshop can do a better job of that... Also they need to get working CHARTS of what is popular and most purchased .. anyone know when that will be fixed?

God yes, more demo's are needed. I'm not a fan of soccer/football so Fifa was a pretty bad first demo to have.

The fact you can only play demo's 10 times is pretty dumb too.

Well, Wii U owners (like myself) are going to need patience in general because we're in that post launch grey area where Nintendo blew out their load of games at launch, and now we have to wait for new stuff which will be thin for a while, and hopefully get into a groove of solid releases around September 2013. Hopefully Wii U will get more features and patches between now and then to build the online network.
