Nintendo: A Personal History

Jon Hamlin: Back in November, 2012 I wrote an editorial about the potential success or failure of the Wii U. I was pretty harsh on Nintendo, but I stand by what I said and my concerns regarding the Wii U’s relevancy in the wider console market definitely still exist, especially going into 2013 where the release of Microsoft’s and Sony’s next consoles is a guarantee. I experienced some nasty backlash from readers on Twitter and in a few emails, and I had some messages from people who agreed with me and thought it was a good editorial. But, in my close circle of friends the discussion raged on. In phone calls and text messages we continued to debate the Wii U. At one point I said to everyone involved in the discussion that the only way I’d be buying a Wii U is if another Yoshi game was released. (Culture)
