Can Pokemon save the Wii U?

"Consumers all but await the promise of new Nintendo software, and for some of us, not just any software, but something we’ve all been longing for. Something… familiar and ground-breaking all at once. Something like… Pokemon." Wii U Daily

It's amazing how quick people in this industry are to call that a system, franchise, or game needs saving. It hasn't been two months since the Wii U has been released, but here we are with more articles. Is it just a trick to get more hits?

Nitrowolf21287d ago

it's a new console, it's okay to hate on it -_-
Remember all the PS Vita articles? Before that the 3DS? Guess which two systems got the hate before them? It'll be the exact same thing with the next xbox and PS, and in fact with rumors going around it's already started happening in small bursts.

Well, that's true and sad fact of the gaming community, IMO.

Well said. There is a reason you have so many bubbles.

The interesting thing is how people react to these articles and how they will support one company and not as much as another. Will those who are quick to jump on negative Vita articles do the same here for example? The media is partially to blame for influencing gamers to act the way they do. We are being trained to be pessimistic.

Negativity sells, it's that simple.

My thoughts exactly.... I don't even own a wiiU, I will after price cut but its far too early to say if this system needs saving. It's too early for the vita and that's almost a year old. You can't start talking numbers until its first price cut IMO. All systems sell bad in the beginning after price cut sales shift and then we would see if its successful or not. Look at the 3ds 250$ dollars when released... Sold terrible ... So terrible it broke the record for fastest price drop after launch. After said price drop its selling more that all systems. No more doom articles... It's still lacking in games for a almost 3years old system but still top seller. After a price drop the wiiu will be good. It's only hiccup is its price and the fact that ps4 and nextbox will be more powerful. The wii was in the same boat and sold better but I may not buy a wiiU if its gunna sit and collect dust like my wii did.

oh cut the crap on the 3DS selling terrible at $250. It sold just barely below par, but it still sold well at $250. Way better than the Vita is doing now.

Kingthrash3601286d ago

Wow I never said a word about the vita. I don't think there a word in my comment that has the letter "V" in it. I'm no fan boy so I won't comment on your flame bait but I will say the 3ds did sell terrible compared to after the cut. If not then why cut it? Simple

Can we please stop with this "save the Wii U" rhetoric? The Wii U is not currently in need of saving. It's the same context as a doom and gloom article but worded more colorfully. Please stop.

What I hate is when gamers complain about the tiniest things and in ways that make no since. Like, I saw one guy say the top of Wii game boxes were bad because they were white. What's so bad about the color white? And, I've heard several people complain about the Wii and Wii U having music on their main menus. Not because they have annoying music, but because they have music in general. What is that about?

Let's just hope in 20 years gamers don't complain about the gun being used in the game is too short or the opening credits were too long.

a lot of gamers are crybabies these days.

Probably not. It seems destined to fail. The game library and soon to be released games are all pretty terrible.
