The Wii U has been a troubled console for Nintendo, but all is not lost. They can easily turn the fortunes of the console around.
name it wii 2 U and relaunch?
A relaunch with a strong marketing campaign, ads which clearly state that the Wii U is not an add-on to the Wii, and a price cut with a steady supply of games alongside it would make the Wii U do better. Without a steady supply of games, a price cut would be a really short term solution that wouldn't do much for the long term.
A relaunch would be an unorthodox way of handling it (you have 3+ million people with consoles with the Wii U label) but I can't imagine it hurting very much.
They could relaunch it but why go through all that? I say they should just stick with it. I still think that a universal price cut would make the Wii U more appealing ;)
"Price drops do nothing to increase Wii U sales." "Insists price drop is necessary to make Wii U successful." You're delusional.
Thats what ppl said about the ps3 few months after launch.
They don't need to reboot it at all. There is nothing wrong with the Wii U. It simply doesn't have enough games. The onlyu thing the Wii U needs is more game releases and more games that people actually want to play. Then all problems are solved.

Nintendo doesn't need to relaunch anything, their 1st 5 months sales are inline with both Xbox360 and PS3, there is no doom & gloom for Nintendo, Wii U will be fine, all we want is more games that was promised.
Must-have games. Nothing else to it.
Reboot something that was just released? Sigh.
I like Nintendo's conceptual videos. Maybe they should make another, better one showing functionality I would actually like to take advantage of. I'm not a game developer, but I've thought of a bunch of great little things the Gamepad likely could do.
Wii fils U
Nintendo doesn't need to relaunch the Wii U. They just have to ensure they get more third-party support, advertise the console making it clear that it is a brand new console, and maybe a price cut when the PS4/Nextbox are released.
