nice, but They need games, not a price cut

Thats the problem with both the WiiU & Vita, both are in similar situations. Nintendo cant drop the price because they would lose even more money on each unit sold. So they are waiting for more games to come out, to pick up sales. While Devs dont want to spend the money on putting games on the WiiU cause they want more unit sold, but that needs a price cut.

Very similar to the Vita, just not as bad.

I think the Vita is actually doing better than the Wii U at the moment. So I wouldn't say not as bad.. I mean the Vita actually outsold the 3DS in japan for once which is amazing achievement for a handheld who's sales were doing so poorly before.

The Vita has been picking up mad speed, new games are being released almost daily for it. From a range of developers and some are new announcements.

I am not worried I am sure the Wii U will sell in time with more games no doubt, like any system does as software sells hardware but the Vita and Wii U situation is literally exactly the same if you ask me. I think the Wii U's main problem will be getting more developer support because it has been pretty dismal so far and most developers are even talking down the system.

The Vita has been getting more games so no doubt that is one reason why it has been selling more on top of the price cut.

I want a Wii U. The games I want it for aren't going to be out until Late 2013 or 2014-2015.

Me too. I'll get one when Smash Bros comes out.

They had to extend it because even with the price cut nobody wanted it. Gamestop doesn't like losing money on non-used merchandise...

I'm about three hours into Lego City: Undercover. It's the first must-own for the Wii U. It could be years until the next one...

Didn't expect this coming from you. Can you go into detail about it? Perhaps you could write a user review?

WeAreLegion2010d ago

Coming from me? O_o Why? I love LEGO and Nintendo...

I'll write a full review when I have time, but the game is a blast! The dialogue is brilliant, the voice acting is top notch, the controls/mechanics are tighter than ever, the fighting mechanics are much more intricate than they've ever been, the driving is solid, and no two missions have felt the same, so far. The only real complaint I have about it is the loading times. They are HORRIBLE. It is more than worth it, however. ^_^ Great game.

The game is pretty cool. I thought it would be just o.k. But I am having a lot of fun with this game. I recommend that anyone with a Wii U try this game out.I got Best Buy to price match Target and got the buy 2 Wii U games get 1 free promotion.

I am tempted to get it. There are a few Wii games I want to play and when the Wii U games finally arrive I will be ready.

But I expect a bundle with Wind Waker HD so I will wait.
