Why you probably didn’t get a Wii U for Christmas this year

Sure, the Wii U has had a decent start, but these strong numbers definitely won’t continue. The Wii U’s marketing campaign is an absolute mess, and it doesn't even really tell consumers what the console is all about or explain its unique potential.

The doomsayers tried the same thing with 3DS

"it's confusing to the average consumer"

Now look at it go. Although I haven't invested in the Wii U yet there's bound to be some cracking games announced in the near future that will temp me, HD LoZ pleez!

The 3ds is way more appealing to me (for what it offers) than a wii u is. Dont compare 3ds to Wii U please. I dont see a single incentive to want a wii u. The best systems now are 3ds and ps3. I'll be getting ps4, and then wii u will fade into oblivion.

Just because I like Nintendo's handhelds, doesnt mean that I am impressed with how they handled their last few consoles.

Almost got one but realized it was not my cup of tea.

I was lucky enough to get one and so far I'm very happy with it. ZombiU is a really good demonstration of how to effectively use the second screen, most of the action happens on the TV and the second screen is used for checking your bag, scanning the environment etc. It really helps build the tension throughout the game.

I don't like how people are judging it already it has only just come out. People are still defending the Vita after nearly 12 months after its release! I think the WiiU will end up being a great console and will stand up against the PS4/720 with it's exclusive games

I can't for the life of me figure out why you got so many disagrees. This agree/disagree system is absolute bullshit.

I don't see how the author of the article reached the conclusion that the Wii U sales will nosedive. He acknowledges that sales are currently at near-Wii levels and unless he's a closet Soothsayer everything after that point is just wild speculation or (even worse) a deliberate attempt at trolling for traffic.

Wait until Super Smash Brothers is released for Wii U & 3DS.

Then check the sales.

HELL YEAH! What a great Christmas! Don't let them fool you kids, the WiiU rocks!

Oh, look someone that doesn't have one disagreed. Just like most of the other Wii U bashers. They have not even played games or used it for the Net (which is far better than my PS3) except for maybe a freaking gamestop demo. I get so sick of these people who know NOTHING accept what they read from other Nintendo haters and RUN WITH IT.
