Nice read. The system just launched not too long ago, and I'm stunned people are so quick write it off as if this is going to be Nin's last console. After what we've seen happen with the PS3 and 3DS, anyone who didn't just start gaming recently should know better.

But yeah, it's a shame about that Rayman delay.

On a positive note, MH tri U is going to take so many hours of my life. <3

It's being written off because it does not have ps or ms before the U.

It's sad people forget how long and how Nintendo has helped build and establish the industry.

I understand people like different things but the out cry for a month old system is ridiculous.

Grammar in the headline needs some editing. But no, the Wii U is not a failure/flop and it is not doomed despite the word of many a detractor/hater/troll. This launch has been nothing, if not rather conventional and given some time and new games, the sales will become more standard. I assume the same for the Vita once it gets more AAA exclusives.

"Rayman Origins didn't sell well and it was on five different platforms. What makes you think Legends will fair any better post the announcement of the Nextbox/PS4 and releasing in the same month as GTAV and Wind Waker HD?"
50,000 units in the first month of sale

That is exactly the point. There is no guarantee Rayman Legends will be supported on Wii U either.
Ubisoft knows Nintendo fanatics prioritize 1st party games more than anything on Nintendo platforms.

Nintendo rabid fans act like they actually supported a Rayman Origins on the Wii like gamers bought Bayonetta on PS3.

Knowing 3rd party games like Rayman does not sell well on Nintendo platforms justifies Ubisoft's move.

People act like loosing Rayman's exclusivity is the end of the world for Nintendo.

Ninny fans need to grow up & show a little more maturity.

The Big N has survived through PS1 and PS2 domination and this Rayman thing is nothing compared to that.

From what I've seen, most of the uproar was over the big delay rather than it's exclusivity.

Has a console ever been dumped on as much as Wii U?

I have never seen so many doom articles within the first three months(no not even the Vita).

The Wii U gets stories on how much it is selling in the UK (which is has the same population as the top two US states)even though Nintendo has never been strong in the EU, so it shouldn't have been a surprise.

Wii U biggest problem is the internet echo chamber telling everyone it has no games and will NEVER have games.

sadly it was being dumped on before it was even announced.

Hicken1931d ago

The PS3 was- and still is- dumped on more.

It's facing the same problem the PS3 has faced its entire life, and the same thing the Vita is currently facing.

I've got my questions about the console. For example, I don't know how well Nintendo can do this straddling the line between core and casual, especially since they haven't done a good job of telling people at large exactly what it is. But I don't think the system is doomed.

Yeah you should've been on the internets back in 2005-2009. The media was on fire blasting at PS3. This is nothing compared to that although I do recognize Wii U is getting some bs thrown at it.

Some seem to be justified (aimed at the awkward online or some other hardware related problems) but anything related to NO GAMES and Wii U being doomed as a console is utter BS.

I wish there was a way to stop the bs but since this very same bs is some sites' main income (in form of ad clicks) there really is no way to stop it. This is people trying to make ends meet what we have here with all the BS. It's bound to get worse as everyone knows how irritated people got when PS3 was the main target of all the BS this gen. It's bound to be even worse with PS4. No matter what disc format, no matter what HDD, no matter what games there are at launch and in the pipeline each and every single aspect of PS4 WILL BE DOOOOOOMED to failure. We've seen this all before. Some of us atleast.

This thing feeds off of negative energy.

It's weird one developer once said you can never please people. You give them what they want and they want more. The only thing nintendo should have done was have a great game ready. If 101 had been released then it would have been a little better.
