Wii U starts 2013 with massive software drought in US

Aside from a few eShop releases the Wii U won't have a notable retail release until early March. Gimme Gimme Games writes why they think this drought is partially Nintendo's fault and that this drought will be ending soon. (Nintendo, Wii U)

Nintendo forever doomed since the 80's.

Hardly.

I wish people would accept the Wii U's launch and line up is weak and sales reflect that. It's Nintendo who dropped the ball here, not the people calling them on it.

The same people were saying the same exact thing when 3DS launched too. Took some software and a price drop and it's doing quite well now. I still remember these type of articles for 3DS a couple years ago. There are still unannounced 2013 titles too don't forget.

Everything pirate thom said is true.

@fluffy

I don't know what your getting at but nobody is arguing that if the wii u got a price cut and released some software it would move systems. The point still stands that as of right now the wii u's line up is incredibly weak. Instead of defending Nintendo's misstep, accept and demand more from the company you so defend.

Playstation is going out with Bazookas and explosions everywhere and Nintendo is a ticking time bomb with all the exclusives being announced. Microsoft was doomed since the RROD.

Edit: Explosives/Explosions=Exclusiv es = E3

They've already stated there are exclusives coming out this year not yet announced.

It certainly is a shame that the year could not be more full. I suppose Nintendo expected more 3rd parties to hop on board. Hopefully Nintendo can fill the in between time with some eShop content.
