"Wii U Promotion Needs Revised" - Retailers

Simon: "The Nintendo Wii U has been available for almost three months and the sales have slowly began to decrease over the past month. Many retailers agree that the problem with the Wii U is the price of the console." (Wii U)

Just needs more games and they need to be same price as ps3/xbox games. Why cuz as big a ninty fan that I am, I wont pay £ 10 for a game I can get for for another console. Until the next consoles come out 3rd party games wont sell as easily on the wiiu.

Those of you that think the controller sucks I would like to know what you think of the alleged ps4 controller

I like the idea of the controller been able to play while my girlfriend watches soaps on tv, its just that because it isn't being that well surported and the ps4/720 isnt far away I can afford only one console so i'm waiting to see which is the best.

I find the Wii U controller big and clunky, but I don't see why you wish to compare it to the new ps4 controller. It appears to be only slightly modified in shape from the ds3 and they've added a touch pad,no touch screen. It doesn't appear to be much of a change.

Really promotions? How about killing the wiiu now and save us the trouble. Take a year to build a next gen console instead of a 7 year old product. WIIU is dead.those that disagrees, keep waiting, or do what I did, buy 1 and be impress by absolute garbage.

This by far is one of the lamest comments on N4G,how about being patient and wait for the great games to come instead of being a Negative Nancy!Yes there is currently a lack of compelling software, but you make it seem like its not coming.

Pikmin 3
Monster Hunter Tri Ultimate
Wonderful 101
Bayonetta 2
Super Smash Bros
A new Zelda and a remake of Wind Waker
Mario Kart
Mario 3D
Xenoblade 2 (X)
Rayman Legends

Those are some examples of upcoming games that are worth owning a Wii-U for.So really, stop with the trolling comments saying they should scrap a new console to make and even stronger one, which would cost over $500 bucks most likely.Developers havent even taken advantage of whats in the U yet and you,and people like you,are already dismissing the system.

Its only 3 1/2 months old,let the system breathe before dooming it.The PS3 had no games for a long time, and the Vita is still struggling with support.But you make it seem like Nintendo cant turn things around.Last I checked they took a struggling 3DS and made it the the best selling console month to month ever so far.

??/??/????

Lets see what the competition has to offer before coming to a conclusion.

Wii U just needs more games however i dont expect it to be as successful as the Wii and i dont think it will outsell (if it happens) the PS4 and the 720 by a huge margin.

Its all up to Microsoft and Sony to give Nintendo some stiff competition.

No one expects the Wii U to sell as well as the Wii, but does that mean it's a failure?

PS3 won't reach PS2 levels but no one calls it(PS3) a failure. Unlikely PS4 will reach PS2's level either

From the link you posted:

"The main difference between the Wii U and the Xbox 360 and original Wii was that after three months at retail, the Wii U is abundantly available. Both the Wii and the Xbox 360 had hardware shortages. The PlayStation 3 did not suffer the same shortages, but was priced too high to move as well as it could have."

Big differences. Trust me if there was enough Wii's to go round it would have sold even more, same for the 360 and off course the ps3 was $599.

The Wii-U went from selling 450K in December to 57K in January in NA. PS3,360 and the Wii have never gone that low and the Wii-U has achieved that in it's third month. If you think that is fine since it's still tracking above 360 and PS3 in their first then I don't know what to say.

Wii U promotion?

Wii U is going to be another DreamCast. It will be obsolete when PS4 comes out.
