I'd prefer exclusive games, but exklusives will do too.

Nintendo very well could do a price drop when the PS4 and Xbox Infinity announce their price points, but mostly Nintendo needs software that people want. I think a system wide Achievement system wouldn't hurt either.

ok article buuuuut...

1. DROP THE PRICE
That will only hurt stock not help

2. Games
Should be NUMBER 1!!!!

3.Indies
Umm at least 2x s a week I see or hear Indie devs raving and wanting to make games for the Wii U.

4. Pride
Ummm so they should ditch eShop and use EA's Orgins for BF4 and M25?? NO! The fact that they have pride means that they care about GAMES and they take pride in that. MS and Sony I don't get that vibe

5. Casual Market!
You are DEAD ON with this one! VERY VERY MUCH a NEED for Wii U.

Ok I admit there are indies making games for the system, I just think Sony and the PC is getting a better slice of the action with more recognisable devs.

As for Pride I don't remember saying about the eShop or Origins, but my point is more about arrogance than pride, I think they've become lazy and rely on their Nintendo name more than their accomplishments over the past couple of generations.

I'm not hating on Nintendo in this piece :) more just seeing their flaws of late.

I respect that you're and editor and replied to my post.

But I can't agree with you on the pride/arrogant part. I don't think Nintendo has ever become arrogant to there fans, maybe to media and devs at times, but to their fans (gamers like games)...?? I think not. By saying Nintendo became lazy is strictly a misguided opinion. How do you know what Nintendo has been working on? Great devs ALWAYS take time to make games. Dice w/ the fb engine, Rockstar w/ GTA I can go on. The biggest difference is that Nintendo could care less what the media say as long as their games are great and they take their time to craft them! Nintendo has big plans for software as you will see this coming E3. :)

The Only Thing Needed Is...
For them to come out with quality games to strengthen the Wii U's library.

I honestly believe a new Mario Kart game could make this console a success. It did wonders for the Wii and the DS, brings in a good mix of casual and core gamers.
