The Wii Who?

Greg Romeo from STFUandPlay writes, "Speaking with my younger cousins the other day, I asked them what they thought the Wii U is. One cousin answered with a confident, “Oh it’s a cheat system for the Wii” while the other hesitantly responded, “Umm isn’t it a new controller thing?” Now mind you, in no reality would these two be considered ‘gamers’ or even slightly in touch with gaming trends but answers like these beg the question- who is the Wii U attracting?"

This is sad and true... most "casual" and or non gamers I know that have a Wii ... didn't really know wtf a Wii U was. Hopefully they figure out a way to better market their product.

As much as I love Nintendo products, my heart sunk at E3 when they showed it and called it a "Wii U". Their better off taking the old Wii's name, Nintendo Revolution, which is still better then Wii U...

Yup, met a couple of buddies a few weeks back and told them I bought a Wii U for Christmas and both of them thought it was a new controller type thing for the Wii. Nintendo's entire marketing department should be fired. And then executed. Maybe.

yeah they are slipping.. shouldnt have used the same name

Or just add a numeral to the name like most companies do lol wii 2 could have been more appropriate than a U. What does the U even stand for? O.o

Yeah the "U" irks me. I think they dropped the ball with a name like that. Wii 2 would've been atleast 36987276809 times better.

The typical consumer does not know what the Wii U really is. Unfortunately, the typical consumer was also the one who bought the Wii.
