Nintendo Wii U is very powerful. Very powerfull that it can run Netflix. It takes huge power and resource to run Netflix.

Oh I'm not saying the wii u isn't powerful enough so that nintendo would have to regret not making it powerful enough I'm saying they should be regretting releasing it with very few games and they aren't

Even the 3DS can run Netflix, so try again.


Netflix was made for PS3. It's the main reason people buy one.

Ah yes, Nintendo fanboys, the most delusional of the bunch!

After reducing their sales forecast I doubt that they are not worried about the Wii U.

"Nintendo has reduced its sales forecast for the year ending March 31st 2013, following less-than-expected sales of both its Wii U and 3DS consoles across the current financial year"

When they start marketing the wiiu with MarioKartWiiU and co it will fly off the shelves in the UK try half a million a month.

Ive been saying this. A lot of people keep talking about the low sales of the WiiU but if you look at the PS3 it did not have any big names when it came out and had slow sales. Once the big name games came out for the PS3 sales picker up and so will the WiiU sales just like the 3DS did.

I don't think the WiiU will out sell the Wii by the end of the gen but I expect the Next Xbox, PS4 and WiiU to be quite close come the end of the gen.

ReLLiK1951d ago

Do you not consider Resistance, Motorstorm, and Uncharted Big name games? The thing that hurt PS3 the most was price. The software didnt take long to follow. So I would like to disagree with you. I've always enjoyed Sony's consoles. I had a wii and got tired of having to use motion for almost every game. I thought I'd give Nintendo another shot with the WiiU. I really enjoyed it for the first month or so that I had it, but I haven't turned it on since then. I feel hosed by Nintendo( as well as from sony with my vita, but I'm not going to get into that).

I just want to see/hear nintendo even sputtering utter jibberish about anything half exciting. But it seems like they are content with their brand new console practically offering nothing to its fans and that is sad.

mcstorm1951d ago

No Resistance, Motorstorm, and Uncharted were not big names when they came out they were new IPs and Resistance and Motorstorm are still not big IP's if you look at the sales numbers.

I own an PSV and PS3 and love what they offer me but the WiiU is in the same state as the PS3 was at this point in its life.

I was not a massive fan of the Wii to. It was fun to play with the family but not my at the top of my list when it comes to be the best consoles by Nintendo.

What games do you have for your WiiU btw?

IcicleTrepan1951d ago

You're probably right but I just wonder when the hell they're going to start making something new besides mario/zelda/donkey kong games until the end of time. They pump them out so frequently it is amazing that they don't saturate their own market out from under themselves.

mcstorm1951d ago

I see what you are saying about they use Mario ect a lot but if you look at the type of games they make with Mario in they are different types of games. Mario Kart only tends to have one game each gen. The there was 2 2D Mario games on the Wii plus 2 Mario 3D games. I think there was only 1 Paper Mario Game on the Wii which again is different to the 2D and 3D Mario games. The you have the sports games like Mario Football and Tennes which tend to only get one game each console to.

Plus we don't always see all of there IPs on every console to as last gen we did not have an FZero or Star Fox.

I would like to see Nintendo bring out a few more IP's and I would like to see them give us some more human looking games and I would also love to see Nintendo give us a Racing sim to to take on GT and Forza but I am a multi console buyer and I tend to get the games I want on each console.

Sev1951d ago

Yeah, time for them to start worrying IMO. They need to hustle with major game releases this Q4 to combat the new consoles.

LAWSON721951d ago

It should be pretty easy to make a better game than kz. Lol

delboy1951d ago

Sure, KZ is garbage, every 08/15 shooter out sold it. Lol

dantesparda1950d ago

Unlike that over played out Mario, not that kid sh!t is garbage!

MariaHelFutura1951d ago

I think the only concern Nintendo should have is how many big name games are skipping their console by choice.
