Wii U vs. PS4, Xbox 720: Top 3 Ways Nintendo Can Save Its Console

The Nintendo Wii U is struggling. Since January rolled around, the company has only sold around 400,000 systems, a number that's caused numerous analysts to cast doubt on its future prospects. With Sony's PS4 and Microsoft's Xbox 720 flying over it like vultures, what's the Wii U to do? (PS4, Wii U, Xbox One)

Good to great games that either can't be played anywhere else, or make such innovative use of the touch pad that the WiiU version is considered the definitive one despite the graphics not being as "next gen" as PS4/720. The second option will be tougher to achieve, so quality WiiU exclusives need to start showing up fast.

Quality games, why else would you buy any console?

I would not be surprised if the PS4 and Xbox720 face similar sluggish sales in the first year

They definitely need to fix the marketing campaign. The problem I think nintendo is havig is they didnt clearly define what they wanted the Wiiu to be. They just through a bunch of ideas together that work in their own way but never really linked all the parts. Like Why have a Tablet controller with a camera in it but wheres the skype or dedicated video calling service that would make that special. i would love to call my friends cell and video talk from my consoles mid game or something. And you made this tablet controller standard where is all unique experiences exploiting the Tablet. They suppose to be very heavy handed with support for it. It the systems biggest selling point.

The other 2 are silly, games games games sound good but why have more games for something no one is buying. All you are doing is exposing yourself to even more losses faster. The virtual console should have been set from launch and could be a nice feature but it cant save a console.

Instead of the number of games they should be focusing on the quality of games. They should be focused with in the next year to release 2-4 nuke bomb games. I'm talking all out pushing the system as hard as the can right now using the features they have available big culturally significant games. I am not buying a WiiU because i dont think they cant make a bunch of games. I am not buying a Wiiu because I dont think they can or will make a game of the quality I want to play.

Its not going to win the console war nx gen.. Its prolly going to keep afloat with its 1st party exclusives & a price cut but its not going to beat sony or MS unless 3rd party devs decide to magically change their minds about it & publishers all of a sudden decide to fund projects..

They need to add more memory and a faster CPU, next gen game worlds will be huge, 1gb usable ram is not going to be enough for multiplatform games. I think they have to concentrate on first party games. Nintendo have their own loyal following that they should pander to, I don't see them winning over great numbers of PS4/Nextbox fans however many Mario games they launch.
