No matter what I am buying this console,

If even 1st Party Games came out on it- that is saying a lot about their quality.

I dont currently own a wii-u and have read alot of users find the tablet gimmicky but I will leave that to myself to decide, my main worry for the wii-u and I have said before it needs proper 3rd party support because you cant just have exclusives alone, the wii-u needs the ( I buy 2 games a month gamers) and they wont be on board until the exclusives come, I just cant see many gamers just owning a wii-u for 1st and 3rd party games as they will get 3rd party on ps4 or sexbox 2, live by the sword die by the sword for nintendo this gen.

Gimmicky, not sure where you heard that. And they had more core third party support on launch day than they ever had on wii.

Wii U owners have never panicked to begin with.

All the thigns people are making an issue out of are only issues to people who never intended to get Wii U.

These aren't true or hardcore gamers in here trying to insult the Wii U by calling it gimmicky and always crying "Oh poor Nintendo, they better do XXXXX" etc... everytime a negative article pops up. Those are immature fanboys. Actual Wii U owners have never been worried.

They are just waiting for games. The games have been announced, and they will arrive sooner or later. That is all there is to it.

I know right? It's like.. If a console is having below average sales people just jump the gun and go "IT'S DOOMED. IT'S THE NEXT DREAMCAST." It's just like stfu. The Wii U doesn't even have much games for it yet. Wait till the 1st party games come out. Then it'll pick up steam like the PS3 did...

TripC501208d ago

Because of loss of support by some developers.

PopRocks3591208d ago

Waiting for games sounds about right to me. Same with the negativity coming primarily from people with little or no interest to begin with. Summed up my thoughts pretty well. Bubble up.

"All the things people are making an issue out of are only issues to people who never intended to get Wii U."

weird, I figured it was the exact opposite.
Myself for example wishes that Nintendo actually LISTENED to my voice, and welcomed me with open arms. Sony and Microsoft are very capable companies with incredible broad appeal from casual to "hardcore".

While I will do not wish to completely suck up to those companies, nor wear their badge blindly without respect for other companies (like Nintendo), I simply have never seen Nintendo give a good ENOUGH reason for me to buy a Wii U.

It's an investment. I, like an investor in their company, am taking stock in their company, following their career path. I wish that they'd really lay it out as to why we should "stick with Nintendo".
I haven't seen it.

There is also something to admire when it comes to any company, I believe that the majority of people who do have rather harsh criticism of Nintendo ARE the people that stuck it out, and realistically, are rather annoyed at their antiquated decision making. We all expect better from them, I least I did.

admiralvic1208d ago

Yup, though I am surprised the standard "this happens to every console" reason wasn't listed. I mean every console starts slow, gets tons of "it's going to fail" posts (or at least in the age of the internet), then once the system gets steam we get the "why this feature is better than that feature" articles.

I bought the Wii U and love it right now i'm loving my purchase and don't regret it. I had mine pre ordered on day one came home got it connected did the update and got out during the download. The only issue I have now is Hulu freezes my system at times. But so far game wise have Zombie U, Darksiders and Nintendo land. I also have supported the indie movement with purchasing great games and love the new retro games they have.

I read a lot of comments about the doom and gloom but to be honest I work two jobs and by the time i quit my PT gig there will be new games out. But I have this feeling at E3 Nintendo is going to show proof that there serious. If they wanted to they could go into the crate and and do HD remakes of the games people love. But I have a feeling they know that and at E3 I think it will not be about the numbers but more the games.

hellvaguy1208d ago

What was the point of you mentioning u have several jobs? I didn't see one. I mean kudos to you for it, but this isn't twitter or facebook.

My 2 cents. I bought the WiiU to play with my kids. They do like the tablet for multiplayer Marioland where it lets you tap and place blocks to make jumps easier. Other than that so far, its not of any use. I did used to have my recliner chair real far back from the tv, so I use to use the screen on that for a time to play on. However the battery life is kinda dreadful. I wanna say 5-6 hours.

Looking forward to the new Zelda, heck ya!

Man-E-Faces1208d ago

I am in the same boat as you, bought the system for my little nephew and Skylanders Giants and he still would rather play the game on my PS3. The only use were getting out of it is the solid browser it has, YouTube specifically. The problems I have with the system myself are as you described the putrid battery life, poor OS, still using Mii's can't stand those things would much prefer iconic Nintendo avatars to represent us, and of course poor 3rd party support. There's other things like a Trophy system would be nice as well, but with PS4 coming it's getting more likely the system will be used only like the Wii and GameCube, only for exclusives. And I know Nintendo doesn't want this from their user base of only buying exclusives and their multiplats elsewhere.

5or6 hours, obviously your talking out of your but crack. Gamepad lasts 2to3 hours tops. Troll disguised as Dad. Nice try Hellva, your not a gamer neither are you Nos. You Trolls dont know what your talkn about, you just sound stupid. Go away.

hellvaguy1208d ago

Mudmax your both angry and stupid all at the same time, grats on that. If I was bragging about the batt life being 5-6 hours max, why would I say that "dreadful"?

You lack any common sense before determining if someone is trolling, aka your stupid.
