Is the Wii U going to survive?

Is the Wii U worthy of the stick it has been getting lately or have Nintendo once again innovated there way to success, This article is going to delve into my personal thoughts on the Wii U, I'll have a look at how this years and 2014 Wii U game release front looks and also I'll have a look at how the Wii U has fared financially in the two and a half month that is has been released worldwide

Before, during and after the Wii U's release there has been controversy, upon rumors, upon speculation and i think it's about time the Wii U and Nintendo stand up for them self's and (Dev, Industry, Mario Wii U, Next-Gen, Nintendo, Wii, Wii U, Zelda Wii U)

There's some things more Mario and Zelda can't fix.

Hopefully the 3rd party support will stick with Nintendo after the new kids on the block arrive along with Nintendo's first party games and third party exclusives i think they will be just fine, I hope :)

Ahhh, but Metroid, Super Smash Bros, Donkey Kong, Xenoblade, Luigi, Pandora's Tower, and Starfox can.

Remember Nintendo put samus and her adventures on hold after it didn't sell well.

That would be a ps4 right?

As long as there are young gamers parents need Nintendo.
Come on you can't expect Sony to do Mario, Pokemon or Kirby, can you?

Ask again six months after Sony and MS release their systems.

Though I have to say if and once the Xeno or "X" game come to the West I'll be picking up a WiiU.
shackdaddy  +   591d ago
Thing is by then MS and Sony will be trying to build up a whole new lineup while Nintendo will probably already have some good games out or at least coming out.

I mean, I'm not even close to saying it's guaranteed, but I think Nintendo will be doing great come Christmas.

But right now Nintendo hasn't shown anything which isn't already out, with anything that's going to honestly prove the system likely not out until PS4/Xbox3 launch titles will be out as well.

And this time the Big N wont have nostalgia helping with casual sales.

Don't worry he gets over defensive when someone criticizes his beloved Nintendo.

Nintendo's first party IP's aren't enough to save the Wii U if it is to go head to head with the 720 and PS4. Contrary to what the fanboys say Nintendo can't afford to have another GameCube. Only the most die hard Nintendo fan would support it. I just can't picture the Wii U having the same success as the Wii.

It's only shit to you because its a positive outlook on the future of Wii u, if the guy had spent 2000 words Nintendo bashing you would be lapping it up!
DeadPixel  +   591d ago
Lets hope the GTA delay means we get it on Wii u, that would be all kinds of awesome. Beating hookers on your gamepad while youre on the john lol
GadgetGooch  +   591d ago
D-Right My friend that would be all kinds of awesome!!

This is just like the 3DS. Nintendo gets desperate and starts rolling out guns which will take the WiiU's sales to new heights, then when the "Next-Gen" consoles come out with their glorious specs, the WiiU must've built an amazing library of games thus out-shining competition.

This is just how I view things though :)
Zodiac  +   591d ago
All they really have to do is release two titles for all their popular first party franchises. That isn't a joke. That is really all they would need to do to have some decent success. They are the only company who could have success this way.

It won't sell Wii numbers at all, but Nintendo software won't let the console fail.

Nintendo is the only company that could survive on the games they actually make. PS/Xbox would not survive on first party alone.

Keep the flow of first party titles, get some decent 3rd party support and they will be fine.

Also, if they just moved some portable franchises and made home console versions, then they would be set.
RFornillos4  +   591d ago
to answer the question, Yes.

c'mon guys, Nintendo's been at it for what, 30 years or so (in console gaming)? other console's have come and go, but Nintendo's still standing. yes they may or may not be outshined by new consoles from Sony and MS, but what they will surely do is survive. they had their ups, and downs.

it's not like they are not doing anything about their current situation. the reality is, the console business is the heart and soul of Nintendo as a company; unlike Sony and MS who have other products to fall back to. Nintendo will do everything in their power to survive, and it has already begun with the reforms their doing, and the changes they are implementing within the company. so yeah, if there's one thing Nintendo will do, that is to survive.

So many people are dumb on this site and don't see this happening or that happening and ninty is not going to do this or that or not get this game or sell only this much etc etc um can I have your time machine please lol y'all don't know shit
wiiulee  +   591d ago
only reason for not getting the wiiu is being brainwashed into the hype that prettier pixels make a game better..what makes a game better regardless of system power is innovation and interaction behind it...playing call of duty for the 100th time for prettier graphics or badder weapons in halo, or sweat in little big planet doesnt increase immersion into those games..sure you play what you figure is the same zelda but the game is completely different with a different theme and objections...not just shoot here and there....wiiu when it reaches all its promises will be light years ahead of ps4 and xbox because they will not offer anything new except what their fanboys and investors who feel bummed out for losing money on them last round want them to offer...im not sure why the hatred for nintendo but without them videogaming would be at a halt..no innovation, just mindless gaming
Theyellowflash30  +   591d ago
Another one of these articles? Yes, Wii U will survive. And yes even after the PS4 and Xbox 720 come out. Everybody is hyping up those consoles like the whole world is going to run out and buy them on launch day. It takes time for consoles to build momentum.

I think yes, just like the 3DS. Easy and little time.
