New Super Mario Brothers Miiverse update 1.2.0

Sadly, it’s not the Luigi DLC, nor is it Pro Controller support, but there is a new update for New Super Mario Brothers Wii U.

The incredible side-scroller has received a new update which sends Miiverse posts created in-game to a dedicated NSMBU community. This community was created specifically to prevent spoilers, but also to trade strategies, and create in-game discussion (New Super Mario Bros. U, Wii U)

I don't get it
There's so much the Wii U offers, yet consumers aren't noticing.

Library, price and marketing. Go to a Gamestop and you'll notice that the Wii U sections are typically quite small and unnoticeable.

Right now there is cheaper hardware with cheaper and more abundant software. There are aspects riding against the Wii U as far as attracting the general consumer is concerned. Depending on the situation, the previous generation can be outselling the new one due to its price and larger library.

Yeah
It's pretty ridiculous that the Wii U isn't getting the PS360 3rd party titles, even though the hardware is more than capable.

It's a business thing. You can't just optimize a game, throw it out onto shelves and expect it to be picked up. Depending on development costs and expected sales, more third party developers would jump on board.

Based on Ubisoft's previous comments, the Wii U costs less than a million dollars to port games to. If this holds true, a Wii U port needs to sell around 16.5 thousand units in order to become profitable. If a third party titles was guaranteed to sell that much on Wii U, we would probably see much more third party enthusiasm.

Or perhaps development costs differ? Some developers probably don't even fully understand the hardware yet (that's been a recurring theme with Nintendo systems since the Nintendo 64). There is probably a multitude of reasons for the current trend, but like with any generation things can change.

It all has to do with marketing and value.

I would say the Vita is worth the $250 price and even though memory cards are pricy (though I recently got a 4gb card for $2 dollars new =P), it's still a good value. However, the exact same thing is happening and it has a FAR better line up / future than the Wii U currently has.

like what? I have one & i honestly would love to know what it offers thats so great.. Miiverse is cool but the PS4 social app kills it.. The gamepad is cool but PS4 can use vita, your phone or tablet to be a 2nd screen too.. With multitouch! Playing on the gamepad alone is ok & thats nintendos alone (for now i think until gaikai is up & running).. The 1st party offerings are "ok" at best & the 3rd party is horrible.. So please enlighten me about how it has so much to offer my friend.. I think it was a poorly thought out launch because the software is dry, no publishers want to touch it, & its system features are inferior to even the PS3.. Not graphics or gameplay wise.. I mean network wise

Um...
Nintendo Tvii
Native BC with the Wii
TV button
NFC

Games are coming in late March, and there should be a system update coming up very soon.

Doesn't matter WiiU will be cheapest new gen console. So Parents will flock to it to bring in millions of new gamers.

The continuing Nintendo fans will return as well. I haven't had a Nintendo console since the NES and I have been considering buying a WiiU, but might wait until after I have a PS4 on hand. Lots of things to pay for at the moment only reason I don't own one.

Theyre not flocking to it now so why would they later? unless theres a price drop, it wont happen because 90% of kids these days would rather have an ipad mini than a wii u..
